Blurb: Can love heal Death's soul? Tresa Grauenvoll had the perfect life. Beautiful, intelligent, engaged to Jurgen Elman, lord of a vast estate, she couldn’t have wished for more. Then two weeks before her wedding, Tresa is accused of the ultimate betrayal--treason. Sentenced to die by the love of her life, she’s hanged for crimes she did not commit. As her life ebbs away, supernatural intervention transforms her from country gentry to Grim Reaper, exiles her to a foreign land and forces her to harvest souls. For centuries she has waited for the man who condemned her to cross paths with her once again so she can exact her revenge.
Immortal Ned Odognagap and his girlfriend, Katie, are witnesses for Artim and Jenna’s Halloween wedding and conversion ceremony that will change Jenna from human to immortal. It’s the perfect time of year for the events since the veil between worlds is the thinnest and those who have passed can join the festivities.
Ned has one problem, though. Tresa, the woman he knew and loved when he was called Jurgen, has returned with a vengeance. Can Ned withstand Tresa’s torment long enough, without driving Katie insane in the process, to find out and explain what happened that fateful day and tell Tresa he loves her still? Or will he and Katie succumb to death’s ire?
Welcome to Author Offerings. I am so happy to have you here today and to find out what your author offerings are. What is your latest offering?
My latest release is In the Spirit.
What is In the Spirit all about?
It’s about a woman, Tresa, who was condemned to a life of loneliness as the Grim Reaper. Her love, Jurgen, accused her of something she didn’t do and another man who wanted her, and whom she spurned, turned her into the death spirit. In his guilt and distress, Jurgen becomes an immortal. When Tresa crosses paths with Jurgen, who had changed his name to Ned, and his girlfriend, life and death take an interesting turn.
That sounds kind of spooky! How did you come up with the idea?
It’s a sequel to a holiday story, Holiday Spirits. In the Spirit revolves around the Halloween time period and the thinning of the veil. When the veil thins, spirits can come through easier and that’s how that idea started.
I know you have quite a backlist, C.R. Tell the readers about some of your other work.
What can we expect from you in the future, C.R. Moss?
I have a series contracted with Devine Destinies titled Look What the Cat Dragged In. It’s about a black cat familiar who likes to play matchmaker with his mistress and her friends and family. Those books are due out in 2010. I also have a couple of other contracted stories with eXtasy Books for 2010 and I’m working on a shifter/vamp series.
