Seven days to go from lethal immortal assassin to Prince Charming? Not likely.
Demigod Andrus Gray may look like every woman’s dream, but when it comes to charm, he sees no point pretending: He has none and makes no apologies for it. Behaving nicely hasn’t made him the deadly assassin he is today. But is that really the reason he’s still single?
The Goddess Cimil—owner of Immortal Matchmakers, Inc.—thinks yes. So when she foresees a mate in Andrus’s near future, she’s determined to make the match happen. That means hiring aspiring actress Sadie Townsend to help the barbarian “act” a little more civilized.
But are seven days really enough? And why does the idea of seeing Sadie everyday excite him more than meeting his mate?

Commotion erupted in the restaurant, snapping Sadie back into awareness that she was lying on the restaurant floor underneath this large man, who was actually assaulting her.
“You think you can take me down with a little knife?” he snarled.
“Dammit, Andrus. You barbaric asshole,” barked the man’s date, “she was not trying to attack you, she was trying to serve you meat.”
A moment passed as the man stared into her eyes, still lying right on top of her, his cock nestled right up against her crotch. She felt his heart pounding away in his chest, the rhythm strangely matching her own frantic beats, like two war drums pounding together.
Ohmygod. What am I doing enjoying this?
You are not. You’re offended!
Yes. I am.
His eyes moved to her lips and then a cocky, devious smile worked onto his mouth. “Whoops. Guess I overreacted,” he said in a slow, deep unabashed voice.
He thought this was funny? He’d knocked the wind out of her and everyone was staring while she’d experienced an embarrassingly erotic moment that proved she was nuts or completely hard up for a man. Or into having public sex.
“F-ing asshole,” she snarled, catching her air, “get off.”
A wicked little smile flickered across his lips. “Perhaps later,” he whispered. “At present, I’m on a date.”
What is the hardest part about writing supernatural characters? What is your favorite part?
The hardest part is remembering all of the crap I’ve made up and ensuring it all knits together. Over time, especially for the longer series, it gets harder and harder to keep it all straight. My favorite part is that the only limit is your imagination. The other thing I love is using a reader’s own expectations of the paranormal genre to surprise them. What I mean is that most of us paranormal fans read a lot, and I know what you’re reading! I can figure out an angle that will surprise you because I know how to make a part of my story feel like you’re going down a path you’ve gone down before and then…BAM! Let’s go somewhere else. It’s so much fun.
Of your cast, who would you most like to meet for drinks?
It would be a toss-up between King (because he’s so evil and sexy), Votan (because he’s the God of Death and War and could tell me about all of the other gods from his own POV), and Bennett Wade (you’ll get to meet him August of 2016, but he’s the sweetest jerk I’ve ever written—I want one!).
If you were casting your dream team for an Immortal Matchmakers film, who would play Andrus? What about Sadie?
Oh boy. I love this game. But! I can never decide. For Andrus, I really see him as that guy on my cover. But I have two other dudes on my Pinterest page. https://www.pinterest.com/mimijeanromance/men-from-my-books/
For Sadie, I guess I see her as cute, thin, athletic brunette—maybe like a Nina Dobrev (“Elena” from Vampire Diaries) or slightly younger Jennifer Connelly, but honestly? Who the hell cares? It’s the hunky hero that matters! (Plug self into heroine slot and call it a day.)
If you could have one bloodthirsty (but totally obedient!) invisible pet, what would it be?
OMG. LOL. So this unicorn thing is hysterical. I can’t remember why I put Minky, the invisible unicorn, into the Accidental Series (I think I thought it would be funny if the crazy goddess Cimil had one), but it cracks me up how much readers love her despite never really appearing in the books or playing any kind of role. Anyway, I constantly receive (and LOVE) unicorn paraphernalia from fans now, SO…I would definitely choose to have my own Minky: an invisible, rhino sized, unicorn that thinks it’s a vampire. No one would ever mess with me and I’d save a ton on travel expenses.
You’re facing down ten evil vampires. What’s your weapon of choice?
What’s your weirdest writing habit?
I don’t think it’s weird, really, but when I’m in the middle of writing story, I don’t stop to add much detail or look things up. It breaks my flow. Instead, I insert a note to “ADD here” so I can go back at the very end and add whatever. Usually it’s clothing, setting related, or more detail about the scene. But I plow right through like a freight train until that dang plot is hammered out.
What’s the most common question fans ask you?
“When’s the XYZ book coming out?”
