Once Upon a Time…

…Happily Ever After
(A Demonica Underworld Novella)
by Larissa Ione
Zhubaal, fallen angel assistant to the Grim Reaper, has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her, not when he knows she’s been given a second chance at life in a new body. But as time passes, he’s losing hope, and he wonders how much longer he can hold to the oath he swore to her so long ago…
As an emim, the wingless offspring of two fallen angels, Vex has always felt like a second-class citizen. But if she manages to secure a deal with the Grim Reaper — by any means necessary — she will have earned her place in the world. The only obstacle in the way of her plan is a sexy hardass called Z, who seems determined to thwart her at every turn. Soon it becomes clear that they have a powerful connection rooted in the past…but can any vow stand the test of time?

Oh, how I loved Z and Vex! Sexy, exciting, and even sweet. How did you choose them for this novella?
Thank you! I’d been looking forward to writing Z’s story since he first stepped onto the page! So he’s had a book coming…it was just a matter of finding the right heroine. Enter Vex – the exact opposite of who he thinks is right for him.
Speaking of Z and Vex. I love your character names. How do you come up with them?
You know, I rarely think about names. I see or hear a word and sometimes they just strike me as being good names for paranormal characters. Plus, I just have a deep love for unusual names.
The RT convention just ended and I’m dying to know what one of your favorite moments was?
There were so many! Lexi Blake’s Beiber revenge made me laugh until my face hurt, I had a blast at the Cirque du Punk event, and I loved seeing so many of my friends and meeting new ones. RT is always full of favorite moments!
What would we find on your desk right this moment?
A cup of coffee, an urn containing the ashes of my kitty, Geordi, a big lump of purr that is my current cat, and my cell phone.
Can you give us a hint as to what you’re working on next?
I’m officially starting on the new Demonica series spinoff! I’ll be leaping ahead about 25 years and writing about the Seminus and Horsemen kids…all grown up. I can’t wait! I’m hoping readers will see the first book next year.
