Interview & Giveaway: Trusting an Angel by Missy Jane

UFI welcomes Missy Jane Author of Trusting An Angel. Thanks for Joining us!!

What can you tell my readers about yourself that they might not know from looking on your bio or reading in another interview?
Hmmm, that I'm kind of a control freak. Which isn't all that easy with four daughters and a husband who likes to rile me up. But that doesn't exactly translate into my writing since I'm a pantser and my characters completely control my writing.  

What do you enjoy doing on your down time?
I'm always on the computer, whether writing or playing on social media sites. I also love to read, but I'm sure that's not a surprise. 

What is your Favorite part of writing?
Creating new worlds. I have a crazy and vivid imagination and I love putting it down on paper, so to speak. I write dialogue in my head all day long and often various scenarios. I can't tell you how many stories I've made-up in my mind that have never been written out.

Do you have any certain routines you must follow as you write?
Not really. The closest thing would be that I play classical music to help me concentrate, and it's often the same thing over and over. But I'm not exactly an organized writer.

What are some of your Favorite books or Authors in the Urban Fantasy/ Paranormal Genres?
Lilith Saintcrow, Patricia Briggs, Kerrelyn Sparks, Lynsay Sands, Gena Showalter, and Nina Bangs, to name a few. There are many others. I'm not sure I really have favorite individual books, but when it comes to series I LOVE: the Dante Valentine series, the Mercy Thompson series, and the Merry Gentry series.

How would you pitch Trusting an Angel to someone who has not heard of it before?
Trusting an Angel is the story of an archangel pretending to be a human businessman. However, Zerach's real job is protecting the human realm from demons, alongside his five brothers. His human secretary, Isadora, is in lust with him but she has her own secrets. When she is forced into considering the marriage propsal of a notorious playboy who may be in league with demons, Zerach has to step in.

Can you tell us a little bit about the world that the Archangels series is set in?
My archangels are in the human realm, in a world very much like ours. The difference is there are demons who make their way through portals to cause havoc among the humans. At this time, I only envision angels and demons as being the paranormal part of this world. Everyone else is strictly human and the animals we're used to. 

Do you have a favorite scene in Trusting an Angel ?
Hmm, I'm not sure. I like a lot of them. But if I have to choose then I think the scene where Zerach and Isadora meet at the mall is my favorite. There's a bit of sexual tension and Zerach shows a playful side of himself she's not used to. I think it's the point where they really fall in love.

Which character was your favorite to write about? What about the hardest to write about?
I really liked writing Zerach because I've never written an angel before. He was also a challenge because he's a man. A lot of my other books are in first person from the woman's point of view. But the hardest was probably Isadora. She has some weaknesses, however, her inner strengths finally shine through and that wasn't easy for me. She popped into my head as a very innocent woman and a lot of that had to change to make her the character she became.

What Other Projects can we look forward to reading from you?
My next release on May 27th, from Samhain Publishing, will be about gargoyles. It's a fantasy romance set in a completely made-up realm where the gargoyle men are protectors of the humans. That one is Born of Stone. I'm also in the midst of writing the sequel to Trusting an Angel, and I'm almost always in the middle of writing a contemporary erotic novella at any given time.

Ms. Missy Jane is the alter ego of a Texas mother of four who has been married to the same wonderful man for over sixteen years. A few years ago Missy finished reading a book by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory, titled The Outstretched Shadow, and thought -Now, what if? -and a monster was created. Missy now spends most of her time lost in worlds of her own making alternately loving and hating such creatures as vampires, shape-shifters and gargoyles (to name a few). When not writing, she spends her time reading, taking photos of her four beautiful daughters and training her husband to believe she's always right.

Trusting An Angel
Archangels #1
Amazon / BN 
 As the owner of a string of successful nightclubs all over the world, Zerach can have any woman--except for his assistant Isadora O'Donnell. First off, Isadora isn't a one-night-stand kind of girl, and second, her dominating godparents don't approve of him. There's also the fact that he is an archangel with a mission to protect humans from demons, something Isadora can never find out about.

Isadora secretly longs for Zerach's attention but her scarred body and his playboy ways keep her from acting on her feelings. With her only family on the brink of bankruptcy, shes determined to help them, even if it means trying to forget Zerach and marrying the womanizing Jake, a man she'll never love.

Zerach tries to keep Isadora at arm's length, but when a demon starts stalking her, Zerach will stop at nothing to protect the woman he loves. But protecting her could cost him his wings.
