The beloved Angel/Warrior team face pure evil in their final climactic story!

The first time they were sent down, Irish lives were led. Emily, the angel, ended up embedded in murder and lost in the realm of true love. While Matthew, the warrior, took over a life that left blood on his hands and anger in his soul.

With their second coming, Emily found herself facing an oncoming war that brought her to the shores of America. While Matthew tried desperately to unveil the evil character of a young man who was intent on locking his partner in a ‘gilded’ cage.

Now...Emily and Matthew find that their lives are all their own. Yet, all the memories, hatred, longing and regret have come hand-in-hand with this newfound freedom.

In small town U.S.A., Matthew finds himself loving his new life. From his military school existence to a new, ‘odd’ friend who’s arrived in town, Matthew’s looking forward to graduation and heading off into a brilliant future with Emily by his side.

Emily wants nothing more than to hide. Although doing her best to fit in, she lives a life on the edge, wondering when her past love will reappear to either forgive or seek revenge on the angel who let him down. Battling the shadows that seem to be breaking her soul in two, Emily soon discovers that her small, quiet town has a secret that’s beyond dangerous...

As she and Matthew join forces to help a ‘haunted’ victim, they open the door on a mystery neither of them can believe. A true villain has returned from the past, and not even their heavenly family will be able to save them. This time they’re on their own, as they face a fight that could lead them straight to Hell…and end the angel/warrior team forever.

Amy talks about...What Does it Take to Make You Swoon?

Everyone has a first time. Mine? When Mr. Darcy strode across the moors. This is the very first time I swooned. I was so absolutely overwhelmed with excitement, adoration and infatuation that I wanted to faint.

When it came to movies, it was a vampire who first made me swoon. No, not the ever-popular, Edward, although this vampire also had very cool hair. In 1987, Keifer Sutherland turned around and stared at the camera in the greatest vampire movie of all time, (no offense to anyone out there), The Lost Boys. Now THAT was a vampire I would have no trouble staying with for all eternity.

So what makes a character ‘swoon worthy?’ Is it the hair? Is it the sparkling blue, or the deep black eyes that stare at you from the screen or page? Is it the power they wield, or the way they dote on the heroine and try their best to be the savior that the female never had? Actually, it’s absolutely none of these. What makes a ‘swoon worthy’ character is the writer.

We all have that ‘perfect’ specimen of true love inside our minds, and each of us differ. Some want to pack up, head to Hogwarts and give Ginny a run for her money to capture that boy wizard‘s heart; while others want to jump on a jet and fly to Ireland in order to find our own Mr. Darcy walking the velvet, green moors. Either way, it is the mind of the author that creates these men and offers them to the world.

Some are strong and silent; some, egotistical and full of themselves; and, some are moody and downtrodden because of the weight of the world that sits upon their shoulders. But each has one thing in common - they all want to hold their true love’s hand by the end of the story, and find a way to save them from any bad thing that the world has thrown at them.

YA, as well as other genres, are becoming more and more centered on the female point of view, which is fantastic. Heroines are taking over in the world of fiction and becoming just as strong as their ‘swoon worthy’ counterparts. They are fighting alongside them (sometimes doing a much better job), and they are working together to make sure that they both bring that special something to the relationship.

Matt & Emily are a team in Until Next Time. They are that perfect match of power, friendship and ‘spark’ that creates a couple that will, hopefully, linger in the reader’s mind long after the story is over. The metamorphosis of their relationship is a great deal of fun to write, because you are literally looking at a team who came from perfection and are now sitting in an imperfect world. The human emotions of love, hate, jealousy, passion - all of these have a direct effect on Emily and Matt. Therefore, as love comes into the mix, each one has to face maturing and making those romantic decisions that may just change in future books.

The response I’ve gotten back from readers thus far has caused a ‘split,’ which is also fun. Some prefer Jason, who is another young man in Until Next Time who seems to have a great deal of romantic power over the angel; whereas others want to see more of Matt the next time around - which they will. In fact, Book II is a much more in-depth story when it comes to the ‘swoon worthy’ warrior.

In the end, whether you are a blond or brunette fan; whether you dream about those vamps, werewolves (with the great abs), or those angels - everyone has their own definition of the perfect hero. Now all we have to do is find them live and in person!

Until Next Time, Everybody,
