or Evangeline Hollis, a fling with a bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks
just became a disaster of biblical proportions. Her teenage indiscretion with a
leather-clad, Harley-riding man of mystery has led to a divine punishment: the Mark
of Cain. Overnight her life transforms from normal and orderly to dangerous and
otherworldly.
Thrust into a world where sinners are drafted into service to kill demons,
Eve’s learning curve is short. A longtime agnostic, she’s startled to find herself
maneuvering through a celestial bureaucracy where she is a valuable but ill-treated
pawn. She’s also become the latest point of contention in the oldest case of sibling
rivalry in history.…

smart, spirited heroine I won’t soon forget!”

As the body count mounts, a ragtag team of cable TV ghost
hunters unwittingly stumbles into the carnage. Now keeping
the Mark system secret competes with the need to keep the
“paranormal researchers” alive. With Cain on assignment and
Abel on an investigation, Eve must fly solo on her hunt to
stop a killer before he strikes again.

Satan has put a bounty on Eve’s head, and Hell’s denizens are
converging on Southern California. The Infernals are complicating Eve’s hunts and creating chaos in her once orderly life.
They’ve also brought her to the attention of an overzealous
reverend who’s certain she’s Jezebel reincarnate.

lass is in, but Evangeline Hollis is struggling to get
through the requisite training to be a full-fledged Mark.
When her class goes on a field trip to an abandoned military
base, passing the course isn’t just a matter of pride…it’s a
matter of life and death. There’s a demon hidden among
them, killing off Eve’s classmates one by one.

ow do you tell Satan that you ran over his dog?
Evangeline Hollis has no idea, and she doesn’t want to
find out. She’d rather forget the Infernal that nearly wiped
out her training class and killed some of the best demonhunting Marks in the world. Living with the Mark of Cain—
and the two sexy brothers who come with it—is trouble
enough.
