Hailey Parrish was quick-witted, irreverent, and hadn’t had a date in three years. She only wanted an eBook reader because her collection of paperbacks threatened to take over her small living space. Little did she know that the "special offers" that prompted the purchase included much more than a reduced price in exchange for a few ads. The device came pre-loaded with the essence of Sebastian Kess, an erudite womanizer with magical abilities from a parallel dimension. When she inadvertently releases him and he inhabits her body, she finally has a man inside her, just not in the way she imagined. And soon her predicament introduces her to yet another supernatural, the handsome could-be-the-man-of-her-dreams Alex Sunderland. Can Alex and Hailey find a way to return Sebastian to his own body, stay one step ahead of the criminals who want to keep him where he is, and not lose their sense of humor?
Special Offers, the first book of the Coursodon Dimension Series, combines paranormal romance, urban fantasy, a bit of science fiction and a healthy dose of quirky humor.
Enjoy the excerpt:
While I waited for my turn in the bathroom, the song “She Drives Me Crazy” by the Fine Young Cannibals rang out from my cell phone. I had programmed that ring tone to identify only one caller and I thought long and hard about ignoring it before I finally sucked it up and answered with as cheerful a tone as I could muster.
“Hailey? Is that you?”
I rolled my eyes. But instead of asking her who else she thought would be answering my phone, I curbed the sarcasm and simply confirmed my identity.
“Oh, hello dear. I hadn’t spoken to you in a while and I just wanted to check in to make sure you’re alright.”
It had been about two weeks since our last call, but contrary to my mother’s assessment, that seemed like not nearly enough elapsed time between calls to me.
“I’m good. What’s new with you?”
“You would not believe what I’ve been through this week,” she began. “I’ve had plumbers here three times and they still haven’t been able to fix the water pressure problems. And of course, they want to charge me whether they make the repairs or not. I’m sure they’re godless heathens, a true believer would never try to swindle someone.”
“I thought you only employ repairmen off of www.whowouldjesushire.net,” I muttered idly.
“I do, but if I was a faithless huckster who wanted to cheat the righteous, that’s just where I would place an advertisement.”
There she goes, I thought with resignation. Thirty seconds into the conversation, and she’s already spouting anti-Christian conspiracy theories.
“Mom, I seriously doubt they are colluding against you. They are probably just bad plumbers.” It was never a good idea for me to engage in this kind of repartee with my mother, so I decided to try and change the subject. “How’s Dad?”
“Oh, same as usual. He squanders most of the day tinkering with his projects in the garage.”
