Supernatural Smack Down: Karin Harlow’s Enemy Mine (Round 2)

LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE…..

Round 2: Fighting for DFT – Selena Guerrero

Selena Guerrero vs. Lucien Demarco

Remember to check out Parajunkee’s View site and choose wisely…tweet #SuperSmack

Name: Selena Guerrero aka Selena de la Roja. Cazadora

Book Series:  ENEMY MINE, L.O.S.T. (Last Option Special Team) book two.

Job: In the human world, owner of Lost Souls, Miami’s hottest underworld night club. In my world, assassin. I hunt Hellkeepers for their powerful nanorians aka their hearts.

Height: Tall enough to kick your ass.

Weight: None of you business.

Hair Color: black

Eye Color: black

From (Location): Hell

Significant Other: Johnny Ciccone aka Nikko Cruz

Signature Move: the Pentagram slice. Once it’s done you’re dead and your heart is mine.

Kill Highlights: Paymon, former Prince of Hell aka Daddy Dearest.

Enemies: I’ve killed them all.

Favorite Pastime: sheet time with my man.

Other Facts: I’m half human half daemon. I used to like long walks on the beach, nice people and puppies, but being the daughter of a Prince of Hell who insisted I hang out in hell with him kind of put a stop to that.

I want to say up front, I’m not here because I feel like I have to prove anything. I don’t fight unless I’m provoked or if someone is victimizing someone else. Or in the case of ENEMY MINE, I did fight a few immortals and mortals to keep them from building a dirty bomb. It was either I step up and handle it or a few hundred thousand mortals were going to die. What’s a girl to do? Anyway, Harlow told me if I didn’t show up and kick some ass, she’d write a new ending for me. As if!

Read ENEMY MINE and see what that bitch put me through! Damn, she is one sadistic writer, but it just goes to show how tough I really am. I survived Harlow’s most determined attempts to kill me off and keep me from the man I love.  But I gave in to this match because I do owe her. She created me. She gave me power, intelligence, skills and one hunk of guy to play with.  That’s why I entered the match, to get Harlow off my back.

Do I think I can win?  Hello, my father was a powerful Prince of Hell. I have more power in my little finger than most immortals have in their entire body. My skill set is unique to me. I work with swords. I can slice and dice a Hellkeeper to slivers in less time than it takes to pour a glass of wine.  Ok, that is a slight exaggeration.  Let’s just say, I can dismember a Hellkeeper damn quick, and cut his heart out even quicker.

I have other powers. I can move air. I’m damn nimble, and have extraordinary stamina. I can posses your mind, and I can slip into your dreams and make your life a nightmare.  But my real power comes from the Hellkeeper hearts I have harvested and wear as a necklace. I never take it off.

Even though I’m half daemon, I don’t like it. I’d rather be a normal mortal, but since I had no voice in my creation, I had to go with the flow.  I didn’t embrace my daemon until after my mom committed suicide because my prick of a father wouldn’t leave her alone.  He says he loved her, but I don’t call obsessive possession love.  Mom couldn’t handle it anymore.  It was after her death I got pissed. Then daddy dearest went after my man, and then my unborn baby. Yeah, it pissed me off and scared the hell out of me.

It was him or me and the two people I loved most in the world, and it was not going to be me or my family. I knew I did not posses the power I needed to kill dear ol’ dad. But I knew where to get it. Those mystical nanorians were loaded with power. If I possessed them, I would be undefeatable. So, I tapped into my innate daemon powers and honed them. I learned how to handle two short swords at a time. I learned the secret of harvesting a nanorian, hence the pentagram slice.

I opened Lost Souls to lure daemons to me. I practiced on lesser daemons until I was ready to stalk and kill my first Hellkeeper. I chased that son of a bitch around the world twice until I got my chance.  Killing him was such a high. It took days to come down from it. I had my jeweler fashion a platinum necklace with seven empty settings.  I cannot tell you how proud of myself I was when I placed that first nanorian in the setting. I have traveled the world hunting Hellkeepers. I also do some side work for Los Cuatro, a humanitarian organization designed to keep the insidious drug cartels from taking over vulnerable Latin American countries.  Mostly I exterminate drug lords.  Sometimes I go after elected officials or moguls who seem to think it’s ok to abuse their power or use their money to hurt innocent people. I do those jobs pro bono.

I have a soft spot for kids.  That’s the mom part of me. So don’t judge me for my pro bono work. I mean, I almost single handily destroyed Hell to save my daughter and the man I love, do you really think I’m going to sit by and watch sadistic bastards hurt babies and kids?  Not on my watch.

Ok, so let’s leave it at that.

Five winners will each receive a copy of Enemy Mine by Karin Harlow

Available on August 30, 2011 from Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books

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.

Talk about bad-ass *shivers* But she needs to be, with a guy like Nikko LOL VERY emotional, angsty, passionate story – I loved it! GO Selena!! And good luck to Lucien as well :0)
