Danice Carter is not one for glass slippers. A stilettos-wearing lawyer at one of Manhattan’s most elite establishments, Danice has a very strong grip on reality. So when she’s asked by one the firm’s founding partners to take on a personal case, Danice knows she’s in for the opportunity of a lifetime. All she has to do is convince her top boss’s granddaughter, Rosemary, to file a paternity suit. Sounds simple enough…until Danice arrives at Rosemary’s home and is pounced on by a handsome stranger.

Private investigator McIntyre Callahan’s was only following his powerful client’s orders: Find Rosemary—at all costs. Instead, he’s found a super-hot lawyer prowling around looking for answers he can’t give. The half-human, half-Fae Mac tries to warn Danice that she’s way in over her head—that Rosemary may roam among The Others, and may have dangerous ties to the Unseelie Court—but she won’t be deterred. Even if that means following Mac to the ends of the earth to find Rosemary…or surrendering to his supernatural powers of temptation…until death do they part.

Whom God Would Destroy by Commander Pants (Kindle Edition)
May 5, 2010 - Received for review by the Author

t's 1987, and “God” decides that it's about time he returned to Earth once more. Opening up a New Age store, he brings with him a fresh message for mankind to screw up - one tailor-made for this, the age of greed. It's called Meism, and it extols the virtues of selfishness, having its adherents, "Do good unto others so they can feel good about themselves," instead of that Golden Rule's tired old message. Sadly, He runs into a few kinks he didn't foresee...

Whom God Would Destroy; it's about God, Big Macs, insanity and the search for the Ultimate Orgasm!

But he’s got patience born of centuries of immortality, and he’ll do whatever it takes to get back into her good graces and stay there forever. Including wait until she has no choice but to turn to him.
After all, no one understands forever like a vampire. He’s loved her from the moment he saw her…and he always will.
