I’m super excited to have author Paige Cuccaro back on the blog today! I’m a huge fan of the Hellsbane series and when I learned she’s re-releasing the first book in the series this month, I couldn’t wait to have her on. She’s introducing us to the sarcastic and kick butt heroine of Hellsbane, Ms. Emma Jane Hellsbane. I hope you enjoy meeting Emma and feel free to share Ms. Cuccaro some love!
Character Profile: Emma Jane Hellsbane
By Paige Cuccaro
Name:Emma Jane Hellsbane
Eye color: Blue
Hair color: Blonde
Likes:Laughing, watching romantic comedies, the smell of fresh cut grass, summer beaches, and rooting for the underdog. I like when the good guys win and the bad guys learn a lesson. I like people who’d rather make mistakes for the right reasons, than do nothing just to avoid being wrong. And I like guys who have the confidence to wear pink, and the humility to ask for help.
Dislikes:Demons, Fallen angels, smug seraphim and egomaniacal jinn. I don’t like exercise and try to only run if something is chasing me. I dislike people who say, “I could care less.” When what they mean is they couldn’t care less. And I really dislike people who couldn’t care less about anything.
I like rain better than snow.
I like summer better than fall.
I think vinyl albums sound better than CDs,
And I think the Beatles would’ve broken up despite John loving Yoko.
I like cats more than dogs and milk chocolate better than dark.
I don’t think Oswald acted alone and I think there’s more than they’re telling us at Area 51.
But mostly I like honesty, loyalty and understanding.
I dislike negativity, arrogance, and short sightedness.
Author: Paige Cuccaro
Series: Hellsbane ~ Book #1
Publisher: Entangled Publishing
Release Date: November 20, 2012
Twenty-three-year-old Emma Jane Hellsbane just found out she’s not human—or, at least, not only human. She’s half angel, too, and now Heaven’s got a job for her: round up all the Fallen angels and their red-skinned, horned devil-demon minions and boot their butts back into the abyss. Only problem? The demons and their Fallen masters fight back…and they don’t fight fair.
Luckily for Emma, she can put a stop to the constant threat of having her head hacked off if she figures out which Fallen angel is her father—and then kill him before he kills her. Of course, in the meantime, she’ll have to avoid accidentally seducing her angelic mentor, help an old friend conquer his own Fallen sperm donor, and basically save the world from a cataclysmic divine smack down.
No one said being Heaven’s bounty hunter would be easy. But with a name like Hellsbane, Emma Jane was born for the job.
