Guest Post & Review: Sable Grace

UFI welcomes Sable Grace Author of The Dark Breed Series. Thanks for Joining us!!

10 things most people don't know about you
Since Sable Grace is two people, we split this up into five for each of us.


1: I don’t like chocolate. (Gasp! Horror!)

2: I don’t cry unless I’m completely alone, slightly inebriated, or severely devastated.

3: I play World of Warcraft. I know, not typical for a romance writer, but there it is.

4: I’m terrified of frogs. Not snakes, not spiders, FROGS. Paralyzing fear.

5: I can eat three pounds of crab legs all by myself and not even feel remorseful when I’m done.


1: I don’t like comedies, however, I love watching stand up.

2: I’m addicted to bananas. (Add peanut butter and a pancake and I’m in heaven!)

3: Give me a video game and I’ll be happy for hours. Give me Angry Birds and I’m complaining in two seconds about boredom.

4: I would feel right at home in the Bat Cave. Open a blind and it’s fighting time.

5: I love watching movies, but no matter how hard I try, I can’t watch an entire movie without doing something else at the same time.

friends who came together by fluke to discover their voices fit together quite nicely during an experiment of "I'll write the first sentence, you write the next." It was meant to be nothing more than a warm up exercise for each of them to get started on their own projects, but soon, the story became far more interesting than what they were supposed to be working on and Sable Grace was born.

Both Heather and Laura reside in Florida, are happily married, and are, well, complete opposites. (Think the Odd Couple on crack here.) Still, there's enough common ground for them to weave their words together in the voice of Sable Grace.

Heather also writes medieval romances under her real name, which you can find at, and Laura is a Golden Heart finalist for her highly sensual manuscript, Mr. Right

Zach was once the Order of Ancients' most feared warrior, beating back the hounds of hell to protect the unsuspecting human race. But since he left the Order ten years ago, he'd been living as a mortal...until now. The gates of the underworld are breaking open, and Zach is needed once again in the fight. But before he can answer his summons, there's one person he refuses to leave behind. Shanna may think Zach has screw loose, spouting all this "hounds of hell" nonsense, but he has to get her to safety. The journey to the Order's headquarters is a dangerous one, and even a warrior like Zach might not be strong enough to keep the darkness at bay.
BEFORE THE FALL was a neat short story about Zach and Shanna (they are not in ASCENSION) fighting there way to safety at the Orders Headquarters before the fall. They had a relationship that ended about 6 months before the events in BEFORE THE FALL but still loved each other. Zach is a retired warrior that served under the god Ares and Shanna is a police officer. Zach attempted to tell Shanna about what he was and the things that were in their world but she called him crazy and left him. When Zach was called back to duty he immediately went to her to take her with to safety. I enjoyed the story, I really liked book 1 ASCENSION so it was neat to see some other character views and experiences. This was a short quick read to get me ready for the release of BEDEVILED and I really liked Zach and Shanna and hope to see more of their story in future books as I would love to know how things are working out with their situation in the world after the fall. You can definitely read BEFORE THE FALL before or after reading ASCENSION so pick it up whenever.

I gave it 4/5 stars
