Black Friday is here and we’re discussing the season with Cynthia Eden’s Azrael from Angel In Chains.
As a fallen Angel of Death, Azrael is cursed to walk the earth alone in search of redemption. One night, as he wanders the streets of New Orleans, he discovers a woman surrounded by panther shifters. No longer able to contain the anger simmering within, Az summons his dark powers and attacks, determined to protect this innocent human from certain death.
Only Jade Pierce is no delicate flower. She’s spent years learning to survive and fight the evil forces sent by her ex-lover who refuses to let her go. But after seeing Az in action, she figures she could use a little supernatural help. And so she plans a course of seduction guaranteed to arouse his interest and his angelic passions…
Make sure you stick around to the end. We’ll be giving away .
A Fallen Angel’s Guide to Surviving Black Friday
In my Fallen series, my dark and dangerous angels spend their lives following the duties that are dictated to them. They feel no emotion—at least, not until the moment that they fall. But when those angels *do* fall, when their wings burn away, well, that is the moment when they are swamped with every emotion imaginable.
So…just what would it be like if you were a newly Fallen angel, facing your first Black Friday sale as those department store doors swing open?
Hell on earth might be a good description. ;)
I thought it would be fun to share A Fallen Angel’s Guide to Surviving Black Friday with you. A few tips and secrets that angels can use (Fallen ones, anyway!)…
These tips are coming from the POV of Az, the anti-hero of my latest Fallen book, Angel In Chains. Take it away, Az!
Tip #1: Don’t be afraid to fight for what you want. If that Wii U is in your sights, then stalk it. Claim it. Make it yours—and feel no fear as you battle your competitors.
Tip #2: Make no friends in this war. The other shoppers out there? They are after the same prizes that you are. Do not let them slip past your guard. There is no room for friendship in the check-out line.
Tip #3: Only the weak go in unprepared. Coupons? Bah! Learn the layout of your land before the store doors open. Strike fast. Strike hard. Get to that checkout and seize your victory!
Tip #4: Love cannot be bought…but if you purchase chocolates, especially the milk or dark chocolate ones…well, you can often trade for love.
Tip #5: The best sales come under the cover of darkness. Like the other dangerous night predators, your search must begin just after midnight. Forget sleep. It is for the weak.
I think I would definitely fall under the “weak” category in Az’s mind. There was no way I could make it out to those midnight sales this year! Heck, on Thanksgiving, I was sleeping by 9 PM. ;)
Do you have any tips that you’d like to share? I’m sure Az’s list could use a few additions!
Thanks so much for checking out my post. Happy Holidays!
