Dear Readers, please join me in welcoming Rutendo from the Shadowed Series. He agreed to sit down with me to share a bit about himself and the Shadowing Angels. I'm excited to share this character interview with you so lets get to it.
Please describe your job, Rutendo.
It's more than a job. It's my very existence. I'm leader of the Shadowing Angels. My warriors are different than other angels. They were once demons, or are the product of demons, but they have chosen to use their powers to protect people from evil.
What special powers do you have?
As a pure warrior angel, I have many, including the power to banish demons and to heal. Like other angels, I travel at will through the barriers between heaven, hell and mortal worlds.
Some might say one of your greatest powers is your ability to guide those who are tainted by evil toward a life of good. How do you feel about that?
It's true that my shadowing angels have murky pasts and that I help mold them into protectors, but the desire to do good is within them. That is something no one, not even an angel, can give them unless they have the desire to receive that gift.
What's one thing you've never told anyone?
I know some of my warriors don't believe I can truly understand them because I'm a pure angel. I've never been mortal and I've never been a demon. They think when it comes to temptation, I'm just an onlooker, but they don't know everything about my existence.
Please tell us about some of your warriors.
Michael was born a demon, but reared by an angel. Oliver is the son of a sex demon and a former angel. Like my other warriors, he's had some rough times transitioning to a Shadowing Angel, but one of my finest, Henrie, was the woman to help him through it. Sinister's case was more complicated than most. He was a demon who couldn't live up to Hell's expectations, which turned out to be a good thing for us. You can read about them all in the Shadowed collection.
One last question. . .
Sorry, but I'm receiving a telepathic call from one of my warriors. Have to fly.
Now a little about Shadowed (Box Set) by Kate Hill
Shadowing angels make sure their charges get the chance every new soul deserves. Born of two demons, Michael is torn between his desire for a normal life and his demonic nature. Rich and sinfully sexy, he has cut himself off from relationships other than physical. When his favorite escort is brutally murdered, Michael uses his demonic skills to find her attacker, but Britt believes he's to blame, and she's determined to bring her sister's murderer to justice. Can she keep from falling in love with a man torn between good and evil?
The son of a sex demon and a fallen angel, Oliver struggles to keep his libido under control while on duty as a shadowing angel in the wilderness of Alaska. He needs help and it arrives in the form of a sexy, no-nonsense former demon. Henrie, a shadowing angel with experience, is the perfect woman to assist a man desperate to regain his self-control. What she discovers is he actually needs to cut loose, especially on the evil forces that are secretly plotting to destroy him.
Sinister knows that a demon impersonating an angel must be breaking some cosmic rule, but that's the least of his worries. By loving Jayden and surrendering to his good side, he has sealed his fate and will be destroyed by his hellish masters. Jayden is used to working on her own, but she ends up with a rather strange guardian angel, one she can't help loving. Can they find a way to save a demon with an angelic soul?
Publisher's Note: Shadowed Box Set contains the previously published novellas Frenzied, Alaskan Flame, and I'll Be Damned.
Excerpt from the Shadowed Box Set
With a sigh, Jayden peeled off her bloody clothes and took a long shower, as if she could wash away the horror of the night along with the gore. She wasn't happy about killing a man, but it had been self-defense. Lou had no doubt intended to kill her and he'd shot Cinder.
Cinder bothered her even more than Lou. She still couldn't believe what she'd seen. Part of her wondered if she hadn't imagined it. If the police hadn't asked her about the second wounded man she'd reported to the emergency dispatcher, she would have doubted her sanity.
She'd nearly told the cops the truth, but refrained. They would think she was either crazy or a liar. Instead she told them what Cinder had suggested--that the second man had run off. Maybe he hadn't been injured as badly as she'd thought, or perhaps he'd been wearing some kind of bulletproof vest.
She insisted she had no idea who he was, but told them he'd helped her and hadn't appeared to be with Lou.
The police seemed satisfied, at least for the moment.
Jayden turned off the water, stepped out of the shower and dried off. She wrapped the towel around her and walked into her bedroom where she gasped upon seeing Cinder standing by the window. He'd cleaned up and changed out of his bloodstained clothes. Dressed in black pants and a red shirt that draped his muscular frame, he looked incredibly sexy.
"Damn it! You need to stop doing this. You're going to give me a heart attack," she said.
"I'm sorry. I just came by to make sure you're all right."
"And you promised to tell me who and what you are."
"I know." He stepped toward her. Their gazes locked and something in his luminous blue eyes aroused her so much that she almost squirmed. He lifted his hand to her face and caressed her cheek.
Jayden swayed toward him and he covered her mouth in a deep, tender kiss.
