Katie is a young woman who escaped the cruelty she endured at home as a child. As an adult, she becomes caregiver to one of her abusers. Her peaceful life is soon interrupted by shocking accusations of murder. A whirlwind investigation leaves many to doubt Katie's innocence, including Katie herself. She finds support from an esteemed partner, but even he may not be able to prevent her conviction.
The second installment in the ‘Angels Wear Lipstick’ series follows a young woman who escaped the cruelty she suffered at home as a young child.
Katie was born in 1964, to teen parents who treated her like a showpiece – and a punching bag for her antagonistic mother. Her life revolved around flashing camera bulbs and tyrannical abuse by her parents. When she was young, Katie was a well-behaved and adorable little girl, but as she got older, she came to understand that hers was not a normal family. Despite suspicion surrounding what took place behind the Pryor’s closed doors, friends, family, and professionals alike remained silent.
After Katie is molested, and her tormentor dies, her mother, Leda is left to raise the young teen Katie alone. Katie never would forgive her mother’s reaction to the molestation. She became what her mother claimed was a ‘problem child’ and ran away from home. At thirteen, Katie left her mother’s abusive ways forever, making her way on the streets of Toronto.
A kindhearted minister and his wife take Katie in and nurture her, leading her onto a path of love and decency toward humanity. Katie’s young life is dramatically enriched and she finds peace – until duty calls her home to care for her invalid mother. At twenty-five, when Katie's mother becomes disabled, she feels obligated to return and take care of her, despite their turbulent history.
Strong characters and the life-altering events that follow them will keep you riveted to the very last word. Angels & Their Demons is the second in the Angels Wear Lipstick series. The first book follows Katie's troubled childhood and her abusive parents as she grows into an endearing young teen, and her escape from manipulating tormentors.
Excerpt: “Yes, you can,” Katie breathed into his ear, and rolled to rest on top of him. “I want you to.”
Nathan opened his eyes to a sight he never imagined could be real. Katie's hair shrouded her like an angel, and her eyes bore into him like kindling, lighting a fire in his soul. Katie cupped his cheeks with her hands and covered him in feathery kisses. Nathan ran his hands down her back, clasping her bottom, and pressed her into him. He wanted her to know how she was causing his body to react, and when she emitted a low moan, he knew she was ready for him to lead her.
Nathan rolled Katie onto her back and slid his hand up her outer thigh to her belly while keeping his lips against hers. When he moved her lace panties aside, he felt the heat emanating from her womanhood. The throbbing need between his own legs was driving Nathan beyond imagining. He slowly moved his lips down Katie's neck, teasing just below her ear, while he teased the skin just above her core with his fingers. He knew this was Katie's first time and wanted to make it memorable beyond her wildest fantasy. Nathan wanted nothing more than to please Katie and take her to heights she never dreamed possible.
