The Quick and the Dead

Afterlife management is tightening the noose. Can a living soul broker break it?

Vivian Bedford is on the run.

She’s pissed off the powers that be by aligning herself with reapers and demons and with that pesky little talent of hers for freeing trapped souls.

Now Vivian’s time is running out.

Time is also running out for reaper Lazarus Darkmore, who’s trapped in corporeal form. Now that she and the reaper are on equal footing, Vivian can no longer deny her feelings for him. But the ghost of a past lover leaves her trapped between two men and two very different worlds. Her only refuge is a band of other living soul brokers and their brewing rebellion.

But when a traitor in their ranks threatens to bring the whole operation down, Vivian’s fight for survival turns into a battle to save the rebellion by rooting out the turncoat.

Vivian will have to use her skills and her wits to keep the danger at bay while restoring Lazarus to his former state and liberating a group of imprisoned, tortured souls who may be the key to toppling the corrupt Archangel Guardian Council’s monopoly on soul crossings once and for all.

But doing so just might cost Vivian everything she has—including her life, her soul, and the man who owns her heart.

“Soul broker Vivian Bedford straddles the realms of the living and the dead. Forced into hiding from angry guardian spirits after the events of the previous book, Vivian takes a road trip to Mississippi with Reaper Lazarus Darkmore, now trapped in a mortal body. There, they plan to meet with the leaders of a rebellion against the Archangels, whose corrupt approach to “afterlife management” demands too much energy from traveling souls. Along the way, Vivian and Lazarus encounter a vibrant cast of allies—among them mambo woman Bijoux Briggs and Vivian’s sister Mae, who was disabled in life but is powerful in the afterlife—and develop a love connection despite their complicated past.”
