About the Book:
Have sex, avert doom, save the world.
The Mayan Doom is real. Government witch Amaia Jones has the spreadsheet to prove it.
Amaia is a desk-bound research wizard, living uncomfortably in the shadow of her famous Venus-magic parents. Then she discovers the world is ending. Tonight. But her bulldog of a boss not only refuses to believe her, he won’t give her the secret to calling the one force powerful enough to help-the jinn. Amaia turns to her mental guardian angel, Rafe, the darkly handsome presence who has comforted her since her parents died.
Rafe has a secret of his own. He’s a black diamond jinn, one of the deadliest and most powerful of his kind. He’s detected an enemy ruthlessly using blood sacrifice to stoke Y12 public panic. Rafe needs to get into the human realm to stop the Doom, but he can’t unless Amaia calls him, and she is threatened by his scorching sensuality.
Amaia’s guardian angel is a stunning jinni and suddenly her job is far more complicated. Jinn take their pound of flesh in exchange for magical help, but the only flesh Rafe wants is hers, taut with delight. Sounds great, except Venus magic is what drove a wedge between her parents.
But her alternatives are rapidly dwindling, and with four hours to go on humanity’s darkest night, the only alternative to surrendering her flesh may be surrendering her life.
About the Author, Mary Hughes:
I read a lot to balance the insanity of a couple tear-around-the-house grandcats (*crash* skitter skitter), a husband who reads anything and everything at the speed of light, and two adults who are still my kids.
My husband is my partner. I met him in high school music theory class. He walked in and I thought he was the most gorgeous man I'd ever seen, the Man of My Dreams. Then he opened his mouth and promptly got into an argument with another kid. Eventually I figured out real-life guys are much better than dream-guys—a lot more work, but worth it.
I've worked as everything from a cleaning temp to project manager for global clients. Currently I'm a musician, computer consultant and author. I live in the United States Midwest.
