Welcome to your stop into Hell....but one you will enjoy along the way and crave to return to! Being a Hellhound you hold your head up with pride and back up your family of hellhounds. So I was honored to be a part of The Road to Hell Blog Tour to show my love for Gracen and these amazing books. A great big thanks  Tsk Tsk What To Read for hosting  The Road To Hell Tour!

 Madison's Life Lessons (The Road to Hell Series - prequel)

Fate can mark one early for a particular future.

Madison Wescott’s life is Hell on earth. Her father, a Baptist Preacher, convinces her she’s morally corrupt when men notice her blooming beauty. She strives to be unnoticeable, but nothing satisfies her condemning parents.

And sometimes fate has nothing to do with one’s potential.

Temptation rears its head when Micah Dominus visits her father’s church on Christmas morning, but she is unprepared for her physical reaction to him. Frightened by her own emotions, she is grateful she’ll never see him again. But when he shows up again at a friend’s funeral, and at other times in her life, she’s swayed by his charisma. Micah becomes her white knight through the good and bad, but can they create the perfect life together? Or has she just located the beginning of the Road to Hell?

Supernatural forces more powerful than fate can claim one’s destiny…

Pandora's Box (The Road to Hell #1) 

Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn’t believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn’t know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix’s aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind’s liberty has begun...

  Hell's Phoenix (The Road To Hell #2)
 Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…

Going to Hell was supposed to save Madison, but knowing she’s dead because of his failure leaves Nix with only one thing to live for. Revenge. With Micah’s help he learns to use his Messianic power. Anything for Mads has become his mantra, even if it means killing innocents to gather the power he needs to succeed. A tsunami he unleashes on a Gulf Coast city is stopped with magical interference, and Nix is more than surprised to feel Madison in the opposing magic. Can he and Micah set a trap to lure her out?

Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no turning back!

Madison has done the unthinkable, opened Pandora’s Box to save Nix from Hell. And failed. She’s willing to risk her own life to rescue Nix, but she worries about the welfare of her accomplice in the mission and leaving her son behind. Following up on a lead, she’s ambushed by Nix and Micah. Shocked and hurt to discover Nix has become a willing participant of Hell, she’s more certain than ever she won’t escape the demonic fate her husband outlined for her. While in Hell, she discovers denying the emergence of her succubus is futile, which means getting Nix out of Hell after embracing her inner demon just became a very real dilemma…

************ Exclusive Elia's Excerpt************

"Genesis Queen"
Book 3 in ROAD TO HELL series

Exclusive Genesis Queen Excerpt (unedited content):
Elias located Madison in what he’d call the study. Cleaning weapons. The slow, meticulous movements indicated self-control, which irritated him. As always, Elias just wanted to rumple her self-righteousness.
Madison looked up from the pistol she oiled. “You got something to say or are you planning to take notes?”
“Bullets won’t kill any demon.” He sauntered into the room, noting the furniture pushed to the walls.
“Thank you, Sherlock Holmes.” She threw a bullet at him.
He caught it. After a scant inspection, he tipped her a confused expression.
“Minor details aren’t your thing, huh?” He frowned and she went back to stroking the cloth along the metal. “Pay attention to the tip.”
Etched into the slug was her sigil. This mortal spawn continued to impress him. It wouldn’t do to let her know that, though, so he said dryly, “Inventive.”
“They’re only used if I don’t feel like wasting my breath to send them back to Hell.” She set the weapon aside and watched him.
“Yeah, I’ve met up with a few”—more than a few to be honest—“that you commanded back.”
She’d used her royal command too freely. Not that anyone asked his opinion.
“What do you want, Elias?”
She sounded tired as she ran her fingers over her brow.
“Maybe I simply want to talk.”
“You don’t chat.” She watched him like he was a marauder who planned to conquer her territory. Who knew, with Madison anything was possible. “Never have. You bait me, talk down to me and issue snide comments. So, I repeat, what do you want?”
Yeah, he committed all those offenses against her. Too bad she didn’t fear him instead of just dislike him. He could work with fear. “We’ve resolved our issue withZennyo Ryuo.”
“So?”
That made him stutter. He thought she’d be pleased they’d pushed aside their differences. “We will move beyond our hatred of him.”
“I don’t care.” Tight little lines extended from her eyes in a heavy frown. “Got to be the weirdest conversation with you ever.”
“I didn’t come to fight with you. I’m here to help save your scrawny, ungrateful ass.”
A scant smile hit her lips. It didn’t reach her eyes. “That’s more like it, Elias, but I sense you can do better.”
“You rub me the wrong way.”
“Ditto.”
“I’d enjoy getting in your personal space just to make you uncomfortable, while making sexual innuendos about guns and cocks…I will refrain.” He crossed his arms over his chest and stared down his nose at her. Micah’s fucking princess was a pain in his ass. Yet, he’d do anything he could to save her pretentious ass.
Madison angled her head, studying him with narrowed eyes. “Why do you enjoy making me uncomfortable?”
“You don’t adore my brother the way he does you.”
A long pause, as she collected a blade and a whetstone off the coffee table. She pointed at the door with the knife. “Get out.”
“Honesty makes you uncomfortable, too.” He whistled. “Even more uptight than I realized. We’ll need to work on that now that you’re Hell’s Genesis Queen.”
Mutiny flashed in her eyes to the perfect shade of Lynx pink. Madison flung the blade as she leapt to her feet. He could’ve dodged it, but instead he took the steel to the shoulder.
“That only stings.” Fingers curled around the handle, he gripped the hilt and yanked. “If you want me dead, you’ll have to be a little more imaginative.”
“If I wanted you dead, I would suck your seraph out of you like I did earlier.”

Hellhound Mama's Bio:
