I'm so glad you enjoyed the book. Yes, I definitely plan to continue the series - book 3, The Gargoyle Gets His Girl, will be out August 1st, and I'm currently working on book 4. Sebastian and Julian will definitely get their own books! There's a definite possibility for Bridget and Jenna too.

You just never know! ;o) But I do love writing in this world and am happy to keep the books going as long as readers are interested.

Have a great day!(less)

Alison Brodie Hi, Kristen. We've me on Romance Divas. Great to be friends with a fellow author. Indie Book Collective looks like an interesting site.

I'm going to download Flesh & Blood on to my kindle today. :)
