*Visit All Things Urban Fantasy today for her Deadly Destination tour of Stacia Kane’s Triumph City from the staff & a chance to win a t-shirt**
Today’s Deadly Destinations tour is moving to southeastern Florida, the land of beautiful beaches and the hometown to my favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan. That’s right, the one and only Miami. Our guide is Selena Guererro and our location destination is the hottest club in town, Lost Souls, from Karin Harlow’s ENEMY MINE, the setting of the second L.O.S.T. book (available from Simon & Schuster/Pocket Star on August 30th). If you haven’t read Karin, then you should be…like NOW. Her Blood Moon series is absolutely amazing (read my review HERE), and I just read ENEMY LOVER, the first book in the L.O.S.T. series – LOVED IT. Thanks to Karin and Simon & Schuster/Pocket Star, two of you who comment on this post will win a copy of the second book! Another winner will be selected to win a very cool L.O.S.T. latte mug. See details below.
Daemon Life is Hell
by Selena Guererro
Hell hath no fury…
As the daughter of a Prince of Hell, I can tell you, my life is not peaches and cream. In fact, to keep my damned father off my back, I had to fake my own death. I’m biding my time, arming myself with damned daemon hearts, daemon hearts that I extract from fire breathing Hellkeepers, and, yes, to extract them I must remove them while the damned host is alive and kicking for the heart to continue to live as mine. I am an expert slayer. My people call me, cazadora. Once I am fully armed with all seven daemon hearts, I will posses the power of them all, and thus, daddy dearest will pay for his crimes against my mother, and for trying to kill the only man I will ever love.
I am half daemon (a fact I despise), half mortal, and owner of Lost Souls, Miami’s hottest club on the Gold Coast. Do not enter if you value your soul, because the daemons I lure there for their daemon hearts will steal your soul, infect your mind, and drive you mad. And that’s just for starters.
Lost Souls caters not only to the underworld elite, but to humankind’s deadliest criminals. As a daemon slayer (let’s keep that little secret to ourselves, since killing one’s own kind is strictly forbid by the Order of Five [that annoying council of the five heads of each Otherkind. Vampire, daemon, lycan, the fallen and those prissy fey]). Think of the mortal Mafia. The head of each family sits at a council with one head chosen as the enforcer. In the order of the Five’s case that would be Rurik, the king of vampires. I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting that ancient, and don’t care to, because to meet him will be my death day. And before that happens, I have daddy to take care of, and just as important to me, the love of my life, who is rather unfortunately having a crisis of kind, the vampire kind, needs me. He just doesn’t realize it yet.
You see, he thinks I’m dead, he did after all kill me, and not without good reason, but let’s just say, not everything is as it appears. You’ll have to read ENEMY MINE to understand what I’m talking about. In the meantime, from where I stand on the balcony of my club, the sensual, sultry scents of Miami call to me. The erotic pulse of passion, lust and power reverberates all around me. Lost souls from both worlds cry out to me.
I am Selena.
For a long time, controlled chaos ruled Karin’s life. Busy mother of four, owner of her own successful business and wife to a street cop, she harbored thoughts of twisting plots and hot romantic scenes. Now, with only one child left at home and hubby retired from law enforcement, Karin happily pounds out those steamy scenes at her keyboard.
Still semi-distracted by her adult children (Yay! no more phone calls from the high school!) and her husband now a successful football coach (Yay! No more worrying when he’s out on the street!), Karin turns out stories about hot cops, bold knights, bad boy werewolves, and the women who bring them to their knees.
A full-time writer, Karin draws on a lifetime of stories and backdrops that few outside of the law enforcement community ever see, let alone hear about. Controlled chaos now reins supreme through the pages she writes where hot heroes serve, protect, and pleasure from page one to The End.
Karin also writes paranormal romantic suspense as Karin Harlow.

About the Book:
Lovers from opposite worlds reunite in Karin Harlow’s explosive, erotic new L.O.S.T. adventure. . . .
While tracking a hijacked cask of enriched uranium in Kyrgyzstan, L.O.S.T. operative Nikko Cruz is ambushed and left for dead. Which means he must be hallucinating when the only woman he ever loved—the woman he was sentenced to death for killing—comes to his rescue. Half-daemon Selena Guererro has secrets she’d kill for. The most important one, she’s already died to protect. Now she’ll do anything to keep her daughter safe. But she can’t just leave her lost love to perish. She injects Nikko with immortal blood serum, putting herself in grave danger.
When Nikko comes to, he is superhuman and super pissed. The mother of his daughter—the one he thought killed their child—is alive. He wants answers. He wants blood. And despite his best intentions, he wants Selena. He traces her to a mysterious terrorist cell where the cask has surfaced. First, he must retrieve the deadly material. Then he’ll take revenge on his beautiful ex. But when nothing goes as planned, Nikko and Selena find themselves burning with desire . . and blowing the roof off their separate worlds, human and daemon alike.
