3 Days to Lockdown!
Sunday, June 7th, 2009

Help me celebrate the release of Lockdown this Wednesday!
See rules and prizes at the bottom of this post.


Wednesday’s the day! It’s been a year since the release of Sin’s Gift, but I finally have a sequel ready to thrill you. It’s completely standalone, but connected. So don’t worry if you haven’t read the first. Lockdown’s the same gritty, sexy kind of story that earned me these reviews for SG:

“…A turbulent relationship and sexy, spooky thrills await readers in SIN’S GIFT…This is a well written and engrossing tale with complex characters who have hidden depths. Enter into other realms with the highly recommended SIN’S GIFT.”
Jennell, RRT Erotic on SIN’S GIFT

“…Wow, I loved this novella. It’s fabulously exciting and a fast, exhilarating read…I recommend this book to everyone that loves hot, sexy paranormal story. I love Delilah Devlin’s books and this is one of her best yet…”
5 Hearts, Abi, The Romance Studio on SIN’S GIFT

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

This is what Lockdown is all about:

After surviving an attack by an inmate, prison corrections officer Gillian Priest arrives at her new unit, determined not to ever let her guard down again. Things get complicated when a handsome new prisoner enters her dreams and seduces her. When fellow officer Billy Hedron makes a pass, she’s already primed, ready to ease the arousal her sexy dreams have left with a more appropriate mate.

Billy Hedron knows his old marine buddy, Gabriel Vlahos, is posing as a prisoner to find a demon within the prison walls, and who better to hunt one than an incubus? When his buddy seduces Gillian in her dreams, Billy stands ready to serve the needs his friend stirs up in the attractive woman. But things take a deadly turn when the demon they seek decides it’s time to take them all to Hell.

Read the opening scene

    Wow. This sounds good. I love your stuff. I have a soft spot for local authors anyway. I am going to have to pick up both of these from Ellora’s Cave.

    Darkness Burning looks like it’s going to be a good book too. I will also have to look for that series.

    Congrat’s on your release.

    Heather!!
    I’m loving that you’re ready to check out Darkness Burning too! Can you believe the cover they gave me for that one?!

    Jody!
    Yeah, the cover is great! I had to have the bars, but I love the hint of menace in that misty face!

    Elyane!
    I hope you enjoy it!

    Allison!
    They’ve done a great job so far with the covers for these “Shadowlands” stories.

    Yea the covers are always great. What I want to know about are the people on the cover. especially the guys. Like are they models or just really good art work? and also things like………marital status,address, phone number, oriantion, how they feel about women with prematurely grey hair? No, no I just kidding……..REALL! :blush:
