2nd Anniversary Celebration Featuring: Gracen Miller (giveaway)

Today we have the one, the only, Gracen Miller! She is the author of the Road to Hell series.

I'm a hopeless daydreamer masquerading as a "normal" person in southern society.  When not writing, I'm a full-time karate/football/guitar mom for my two very active sons. I'm a devoted wife to my real-life hero-husband of almost 19 years.  I'm addicted to writing, reading paranormal romance novels and watching movies, Alabama football (college football...the SEC rocks!!) and coffee...addictions are not necessarily in order of priority.  I am convinced coffee is nectar from the gods and blending coffee and writing together generates the perfect creative merger.  Many of my creative worlds are spawned from coffee highs.  

Gracen is here to introduce us to the Road to Hell characters! You ready?

Meet the Road to Hell Series Characters 

Micah Dominus
What’s a man to do when his wife is destined for greatness, but she refuses to claim her fate? My actions toward her were difficult, but necessary. Judge me when you have all the facts. Better yet, criticize me when you’re faced with the same difficult choices. Few of you could execute the hard choices I did.
Mankind would consider my deeds brutal and abusive, but I’d caution humanity to remember rarely is anything as it seems on the surface. Scratch that veneer and a whole world of possibilities will open before your eyes. A plethora of demons eager to taunt you and feast upon your soul. Indomitable fallen angels to claim you for their hellish kingdom. And not one of your so-called guardian angels will ride in to save the day. Where are they when you need them the most?
I’ll offer you salvation and provide you protection too. That’s a guarantee. Everyone I own or defend will receive an amazing new world at no cost. Eager to obtain my free paradise? All you have to do is accept my offer of your own free will…. 

Madison Wescott
My life is a lie. My birth, my parents, my marriage and my destiny were all planned for me. Discovering the truth rocked my foundation, culminating in new beliefs and a doggedness to escape my fate. My ‘fate’ has a name and I once loved him. I called him husband and champion then, now I call him foe. My one solace is that he miscalculated my resistance to claim my hellish status. I refuse to accept my providence with nothing more than a whimper of surrender. Underestimating me was his first mistake. I’ll fight to the bloody end to save not only my future, but, also, my son’s. He deserves more than what’s been designed for him.
Finding a new family on the Road to Hell came as a surprise. An immortal in the guise of mentor makes me stronger, gives me courage and battles at my side. A badass Sherlock came to my rescue at the darkest moment of my life and has become my rock…until he sold his soul to Hell. I failed him when I tried to save him from his destiny. In the process, I altered my future, stepped closer to accepting my husband’s fate for me. A little too late I learned, once you open Pandora’s Box, there’s no turning back!
Phoenix “Nix” Birmingham 

The majority of my life has been dedicated to killing the monsters most people believe are myth. I masked my loneliness by sleeping with too many women, but then I met Madison Wescott and
she changed my perception of the world. Strong and dedicated to her son, she’s smart and sexy. She’s the only woman outside my family I’d sacrifice everything for, including my life. I nicknamed her Mads because in her darkest hour, she found the courage to fight like a mad woman. I’d traverse the road to hell for her. Against all supernatural odds, I’m placing my bets on her success.
Until Mads, I never dreamed about the future, never wanted more than I had been given. Mads changed everything. Left me craving things I shouldn’t want and a life I couldn’t have. She haunts my waking dreams as well as my sleeping ones. My fondest fantasy is claiming her as my own, declaring my love for her, while making love to her. Who knew my fantasy would be acted out in one of the darkest hours of my life? Or that it wouldn’t play out as I had envisioned? The devil plays his victims with mastered skill…

Where does the road to Hell begin?

 What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...

Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…

Going to Hell was supposed to save Madison, but it didn't work. Knowing she’s dead because of his failure leaves Nix Birmingham only one thing to live for. Revenge. With Micah’s help, he learns to use his Messianic power. Anything for Mads becomes his mantra, even if it means killing innocents to gather the power he needs to succeed. A tsunami he unleashes on a Gulf Coast city is stopped with magical interference, and Nix is more than surprised to feel Madison in the opposing magic. If she’s alive, can he and Micah set a trap to lure her out?

Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no turning back!

Madison has done the unthinkable. She opened Pandora’s Box to save Nix from Hell—and failed. She’s willing to risk her own life to rescue Nix, but she worries about the welfare of her accomplice in the mission, and leaving her son behind. Following up on a lead, she’s ambushed by Nix and Micah. Shocked and hurt to discover Nix has become a willing participant in Hell, she’s more certain than ever she won’t escape the demonic fate her husband outlined for her. While in Hell, she discovers that denying the emergence of her succubus is futile, which means getting Nix out of Hell after embracing her inner demon just became a very real dilemma…
