I’m a sinner with no regrets.
I’m a man with no shame.
I’m a lover with no soul.
What am I?

You’re a loner with no friends.
You’re a beggar with no place to go.
You’re a face with no name.
Who are you?

It doesn’t really matter what I am or who you are. Everyone has sin in common. But I pride myself on doing it better. Through the eyes of another, I am envied. If they only knew the wrath I have endured. Greed can be a motherfucker, but it is what makes us strive to be better. Lust can make you burn, but without it you would freeze to death. Some of us are a glutton for punishment and want to feel the pain that reminds us we’re still alive rather than overcome by sloth.

The lure of these seven deadly sins is like an addiction. And I intend to indulge in each of these unforgivable sins.

Excerpt Logo

I cross my arms over my chest, getting more comfortable. “Come in,” I call out.

The door opens, and she comes walking in as if she owns the place. Shoulders pulled back and chin up. She is dressed much differently than she was last night, but it doesn’t change the fact she’s beautiful. She’s pulled her long, dark hair up into a messy ponytail with loose pieces framing her flawless face. She has an oversized white t-shirt on that hangs off one shoulder. The color of her bra strap gets my attention. Black—my favorite color. She’s wearing a pair of black yoga pants that hugs her thin legs. Even though they cover more of her legs than her shorts did from last night, they seem more sexual. More intimate in a way that makes me want to peel them off her slowly.

“I need to have a word with you …” I arch a brow at her hard tone even though it did sound cute “… sir,” she adds a little softer, and I hide my smile. So she doesn’t have as much backbone as she wants me to think she has.

“I don’t think we’ve been properly introduced,” I say as I stand. I reach out my right hand toward her. “My name is …”

She holds up her hand stopping me. “I know who you are.” She cocks a dark eyebrow. “A word?” She’s all business.

I smirk as I sit back down. “Of course. And please, call me Case.” I gesture to the chair that sits across my desk.

“I’ll stand. This won’t take long.” She takes in a deep breath, and I allow myself a quick look at her large chest hidden behind that t-shirt. I can’t touch her, but I sure as hell can enjoy the view.

“What can I do for you?” I ask with amusement. I can think of several things I could do for her, all of which would require her being naked and bent over my desk. I rub my hands on my thighs as I feel my cock start to harden at the thought of her, open-mouthed, moaning in pleasure.

“My brother told me that he owes you.” She gets right to the point.

My face hardens at that statement. My amusement is replaced with anger. What else did he tell her? “I don’t see where what business I have with your brother is any of yours,” I say flatly.

She crosses her arms over her chest and lets out a huff. The motion blows the dark strands around her face. “That is where you are wrong. I don’t know what he owes you, but I’m willing to pay it.”

I refrain from chuckling at that. I lean forward and place my forearms on my desk. She quickly scans the tattoos on my arms and then looks back at me. “Taylor…”

“Call me Miss Williams,” she informs me lifting her chin.

“Miss Williams, I assure you that you cannot pay what he owes me.”

I watch as her tough act starts to unravel. “I don’t have a lot of money, that’s true. But maybe I can make payments,” she offers, her voice sounding more desperate than demanding.

I shake my head. “This isn’t about money.”

She stomps her foot, and I chuckle. Her beautiful blue eyes narrow on me as she uncrosses her arms and points an angry finger at me. “Name your price!” she demands. “Everyone has a price.”

If she only knew how right she is, but I say, “There is no price.”

She throws her arms out to her side. “I came here …” She pauses as she looks around the room as if it can give her some sort of an answer. Then she mutters a curse in frustration. When she looks back up at me, she looks desperate. Her eyes have softened, making them look lighter than they are. Her lips part as she breathes in a sigh, and her shoulders slump in defeat. And I hate that I like the way it looks. That it makes me feel like she needs me. That I hold all the answers. Too bad she’s not gonna get them.

wickedbig

If you’re a fan of humorous, offbeat, quirky, satirical and witty metaphysical/visionary fantasy then Wicked is right up your alley; since it’s an absurd yet thought-provoking combination of all of the above.
About the book
Wicked Front CoverThe universe started with a bang… And so does Wicked!
Angels and demons and dragons… Oh my! Earth: it’s the promised land for Kin, beings from the Astral Planes. Some, beings of light. Others, the Fallen, beings of unimaginable evil… Seven Cyn, a confident and empowered modern woman, is Kin and a CIA Operative. With her best friend Leon in tow, she flies to Wales in pursuit of an ancient relic, the Spear of Destiny. Then throw the enigmatic Luc into the mix as he and Sev discover a love that defies the stars. Yet, there is a catch… Sev has been tasked with ending his life. Along with a twisted pixie named Ace, they uncover the location of the Spear and end up in a race against time with the survival of the whole entire Universe left hanging in the balance in a battle between good verses evil. This unlikely odd-coupled menagerie comes up against a shadow government run by Dark Entities and Fallen Angels possessing mortal souls. Will Sev unlock the secrets of the Spear in time to avert universal disaster or will the Universe fall into utter darkness? Has Sev finally bitten off more than she can chew? Filled with believable characters and injected with a heaping dose of sarcasm and wit… And just as many twists and turns; Wicked promises not to disappoint. This lighthearted energetic, fast-paced romp will certainly open your mind and tickle your funny bone. Wicked is kinda like this… Take satirical chick lit… Place that in a contemporary fantasy setting… And then throw in the Apocalypse just for good measure. That’s Wicked! And That + Wicked = Awesome!
Wicked is filled with all of the no-holds-barred thrills of your average adventure. Be prepared to sit on the edge of your seat as you are transported into the depths of a rich and dark fantasy world not unlike that of your own, but with a few unique and dynamic twists. Take a globe trotting trek into a world where nothing is quite as it seems. Wicked has enough pulse pounding chases, fights, heists, shadow government conspiracy theories and treasure hunts to appeal to not only die-hard fantasy fans; but your average adventure enthusiast. Be prepared for the wild high-flying ride of your life. And just hope that the good guys win.

Fun Facts

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Wicked

by Jillian Kleine Der Löwe

  1. The book is based on dreams that I’ve had, starting when I was 11 years old in 1991. However, I added my own voice to it and turned into into a comedy. The dreams were very emotastik.
  2. I’m a medium, psychic, psychopomp, shaman and walker between worlds. I first astral projected in 1991, around the same time that the dreams started. I’ve actually communicated with all of the spirits in my book. I portrayed them all as accurate as possible. I don’t honestly know how I’ve had the time to astral project with everything else that I have going on in my life. I especially knew that I had to get Luc right, because he had such a bad (and very undeserved) reputation. I told him that I’m his new PR girl… He agreed. He’s just way too introverted to set the record straight himself. That’s where I come in. I think that part of him has a little chip on his shoulder because of the way he’s been perceived by others and he’s secretly grown to love the “part” he plays because he’s a bit naughty and does really enjoy pushing the envelope.
  3. The character of Ace is an amalgam of many female spirits that all have similar playful energies.
  4. The name of my main character, Sev, is the given name of a daughter that my husband and I had during a past life. The name given to Sev at the time of her birth, Princess Aubreana Fáid-Nuada, was my name during my very first past life. My younger brother in this life, was my twin brother during that life, Prince Írael Fáid-Nuada. He and I are still incredibly close and still share the same bond we had then.
  5. Much of the back story in my series, is based on events that actually occurred during mine and my husbands past lives. We’re lucky enough to remember all of them… The good, the bad and the ugly… Since all of that shaped us into the glorious people we are.
  6. Wicked is first and foremost a comedy.
  7. I listened to lots of gothic punk while writing Wicked. Mostly the Sisters of Mercy and the NIGHTCHILD.
  8. The song on my book trailer was done by the NIGHTCHILD specifically for Wicked.
  9. I designed the cover for Wicked and wrote all of the advertising copy myself. A few of my friends in publishing evaluated everything for me and they were blown away.
  10. People have responded very well to my characterization of Luc. Even very conservative Christians have e-mailed me saying things like, “Even Lucifer deserves redemption. Thank you for helping me see him in a new light.”
