Top Ten List with Lisa Desrochers & Signed Galley Giveaway for Original Sin!

Today I'd like to welcome Lisa Desrochers, author of Personal Demons and its sequel, Original Sin, which releases on July 5th. Lisa stopped by with a really funny top ten list to share with us and she brought along a signed galley of Original Sin for one lucky winner to enjoy. Details below.

Original Sin (Personal Demons, #2)

Top Ten Ways to Find Out if Hell is gunning for your soul:

10) You suddenly crave chili peppers

9) You shiver in a sauna.

8) You get excited when someone tells you to go to Hell.

7) You let all your eggs rot because you like the smell.

6) You’re disappointed when you discover the highway to Hell is only metaphorical.

5) Your head spins a full circle.

4) You start speaking in tongues.

3) You giggle when you watch the movie Seven.

2) You consider the seven deadly sins a checklist.

1) You sprout horns.
Personal Demons (Personal Demons, #1)
Personal Demons by Lisa Desrochers
If you had to choose between Heaven and Hell, which would it be?

Are you sure about that...?

Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a wicked streak. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance--even her closest friends--and it seems her senior year will be more of the same...until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can't seem to stay away from him. What she doesn't know is that Luc works in Acquisitions--for Hell--and she possesses a unique skill set that has the king of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he's as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn't stand a chance.

Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn't get what he came for. And it isn't long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.

But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay...for all of them.  
Original Sin (Personal Demons, #2)

Original Sin (A Personal Demons Novel) 
by Lisa Desrochers

Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.

Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk losing his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently-acquired guardian angel.

Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears—and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.

And not everyone will get out of it alive.

LISA DESROCHERS lives in central California with her husband and two very busy daughters. She can always be found with a book in her hand, and she adores stories that take her to new places and then take her by surprise. Growing up all over the country inspired wanderlust, and Desrochers loves to travel, which works out well since she lectures internationally on a variety of health care topics. Lisa Desrochers has a doctorate in physical therapy and maintains a full-time practice.  Official Website & Blog
