Supernatural Smack Down: Jenn Bennett’s Arcadia Bell

LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE…..

Arcadia Bell

Name: Cady

Book Series: Arcadia Bell

Job/Who I Am: Tiki bar co-owner and bartender. Outlaw. Occultist. Moonchild.

Height: 5′ 6″

Weight: That’s none of your damn business. (And if you stare at my ass too long, know that my boyfriend has demon horns and an illegal sawed-off shotgun.)

Hair Color: Dark brown with two white-blonde Bride-of-Frankenstein streaks

Eye Color: Blue

From (Location): La Sirena (coast of Central California, two hours south of San Francisco)

Significant Other: Lon Butler, Earthbound demon and famous photographer (father to Jupe Butler)

Signature Move: Shocking you until you pee your pants

Kill Highlights: My infamous occultist parents are alleged serial killers on the FBI’s Most Wanted list: is that a good enough “kill” highlight for you?

Enemies: Most of the Hellfire Club members in La Sirena. Rival occultists. Lon’s ex-wife. Anyone who tries to rob my bar.

Favorite Pastime: Watching old horror movies with Jupe

#

So, yeah. I’m Arcadia Bell, but most folks just call me Cady. I’m an occult magician and bartender at Tambuku Tiki Lounge, the only demon-friendly tiki bar in Central California. It’s also the only bar with seventeen binding traps, so if you’re an Earthbound demon, you might want to think twice before you try to impress your drunk friends with your weak-ass fighting skills. See this? A wooden staff with snakes carved around the handle might not look like much, but it’s called a caduceus. With it, I can do one of two things. If you’re a demon, I can bind you where you stand. Not only is binding bad for your heart, it’s also embarrassing—no one likes to see a grown man cry in public. And if you’re human, I can fortify my natural magical energy with electricity and shock the living daylights out of you.

It’s probably only fair to warn you that on occasion, when I’ve been pushed too far, things have gotten…out of control. I’ve loosened a giant, pissed-off Æthyric demon on crowd of people, beat someone unconscious with the top of a school desk, and used magick to throw a man off a roof to his death. I also have no qualms about playing dirty: I will sneak magical herbal concoctions in your drink faster than you can say Mai Tai.

But today, I promise to keep things on the level. Mostly. I agreed to this fight because my demon boyfriend’s teenage son, Jupe, is under the impression that I can win. Plus, his dad has promised me homemade carnitas and mind-blowing sex afterward—and those things, frankly, are much better motivations. Let’s do this!

About this Book:

In the third book in this beloved and “riveting” (Romantic Times) urban fantasy series, demon-friendly tiki bar owner Arcadia Bell discovers more about her own evolving, and possibly destructive, magical abilities when her bar is the target of a demonic crime wave.

Renegade mage and bartender Arcadia Bell has had a rough year, but now the door to her already unstable world is unhinging. When a citywide crime wave erupts, Cady’s demon-friendly tiki bar is robbed by Earthbounds wielding surreal demonic abilities that just flat-out shouldn’t exist. With the help of her devilishly delicious boyfriend, Lon Butler, Cady sets out to find the people who wronged her—but her targets aren’t the only ones experiencing unnatural metamorphoses. Can Cady track down the monsters responsible before the monster inside her destroys everything—and everyone—she loves? If she survives this adventure, one thing is certain: it’s last call for life as she knows it.
