Nia Shay is my Woman In Horror today! When she says she lives in a tiny concrete box in the middle of the Arizona desert, it reminds me of the movie Tremors. Reba lived in one, but it was big. I hope no giant beasties attack her.

Nia has some super friends in the horror biz, some being Women In Horror. Now she gets her place in the spot-light.

You probably notice that Nia is a little shy and uses a most interesting caricature for her photo-op. Actually, I think it's cute, although we don't want to bandy that word around when we're discussing paranormal things.  

Dark Angel's Ward (Angel Warden Series Book 1) is a great paranormal tale with horror, love, funny things, and dark secrets. D o you like angel books. This is for you.

Book Description

January 27, 2012
Two years ago, Jandra Maxwell walked away from the secret Fairlight Society and started a new life in a quiet Texas town. When her former Ward, the dark angel Zeph, seeks her out and begs for her help, Jandra faces an impossible choice. She knows he can only offer her heartache, but she can't turn her back on the only man she's ever loved. Zeph teeters on the brink of madness, pummeled by emotions his angelic blood once rendered him incapable of feeling. Driven to protect Jandra from a threat he can only glimpse in nightmares, he refuses to leave her side. As they explore the mystery of his recurring dreams, they discover the Fairlight Society has been keeping a terrible secret -- one they'll kill to protect. Fighting for her life isn't so easy when Jandra's also fighting for her heart. Her inexorable attraction to Zeph may save them...or damn them both.

An amazing start to a new paranormal series from a new (at least to me) author. I was so engrossed in this book, I read it in less than a day (yes I slept a few hours-lol). It's a wonderfully written, emotional, exciting, adventurous, sensual and fun read that surprises you at every turn. It's the furthest from predictable that I've read in some time and I really enjoyed all of the surprises.

To believe or not to believe. That is one dilemma Jade finds herself in once Zeph returns into her life again. It's been two years and she has a different life. But cannot deny herself the feelings she still holds for him. They are a strong combination of love and hate. But she sees and senses changes in him that should not be. Could he be for real. Or is this a hoax to get her back into his life and his bed?

Together with some assistance from some great friends. They find out many truths about the Society and other paranormal's out there. There are still some things left to investigate. But together they will conquer all!

I'm looking forward to the rest in the series. I fell in love with many of the characters on the pages. The twins Cara and Sara are snarky, smart and funny. Also extremely loyal friends to Jade. Zeph is one hot dude and is determined to prove to Jade that he is for real. He has his own feelings and his heart belongs solely to her. Brax is another character that grabbed at me. Who can resist a good looking incubus? Not me that's for sure and the fact that he was on Jade's side gave him more brownie points ;)

Ugly Like Me (Angel Warden Series Book 2) gives us more of Jandra from Book 1.

Love this series. Things in Jade's world are not what they seem to be. She's stuck in a dead end job with mundane problems but that's just the beginning of this thrill ride.

 Amazon bio:

Nia Shay is a reclusive weirdo who lives in a tiny concrete box in the middle of the Arizona desert. (No, seriously.)
In between dealing with mild OCD and an epic caffeine addiction, she finds time to mold the voices in her head into cohesive sarcastic remarks, and sometimes even a story or two. She has been penning such tales, almost all of them with a decidedly paranormal flavor, since the second grade. ("The Witch's Castle," © 1985.)
Now that paranormal fiction is the "in thing," Nia has decided to overcome her extreme distaste for trends and jump on the ol' bandwagon. Join her on her harrowing journey through the twisted corridors of her own mind. That is...if you dare.

So, my friends, I would say that following the exquisite pen that sits in the hand of Nia, we should all ask her to write more of her super tales.

Nia Shay is a woman In Horror!
