Cate Delacey is glad she's a witch--both kinds. She could have done without the guardian bit that put a bull's eye on her back. Being a guardian comes with so many risks and rules that immortality ought to be a fringe benefit. Whenever the New Orleans Supernaturals' Crime Unit calls for her help she'd like to tell them to go to Hell--but they're already in that particularly unpleasant part of the netherworld. Even a guardian has to pay her bills, and Cate has intention of following in her mother's footsteps as an enforcer for the Council of Supernatural Beings. Opening the Darkmirror Agency was a great idea. Her clients are mostly human, and they pay for everything from bounty hunting to process serving. But one day it all goes to Hell, figuratively. Then literally. Because that's the day the Council's detective Jacqueline Sloan slinks her way into Cate's life. Jacq. So alluring. So powerful. So immortal. And up to her sexy neck in a secret that will unleash Hell's Belle. Marie Castle's unpredictable Darkmirror world is unveiled in this romantic, sizzling debut.
Marie Castle lives in a little town in Mississippi once called Gandsi-Zion for the train-stop that ran between the Civil War era Zion Seminary and the Gulf and Ship Island depot. There, she practices Practical-Romanticism (her term for being single). She works in the public sector for a well-known, multi-national company, has been known to dance in her socks when no one is around, and does foolish things on a regular basis merely because she can. She welcomes feedback and can be contacted through her Facebook page. Hell's Belle is her first novel.
