Gabriel, the Archangel and Messenger of God - yeah,
that Gabriel - visits Mary Miller. He tells her, as the key, she is destined to
spread the Light and vanquish the Darkness. Her first assignment is to restore
the soul of the Walking Man. Sounds simple enough -- until she’s thrown into
the face of evil. And then, Joe Deacons enters her heart. This battle just got
a lot more complicated. She must complete her mission without losing all she

nodded. "Of course. He is a staple of the Downtown area. There are a few
groups I'm affiliated with that hand out food and clothing to those in need. He
never comes to these events so I leave them by the area where he sleeps."
She paused, thoughtfully. "I just can't believe that it is André."

was married to. She and her family treated him horribly. She was a gold digger
and all she cared about was money and the prestige."
interrupted Alfred by saying, "I remember her. She was so mean to André
and all she cared about was looking
rich. Wealth is a gift—she just wanted it for a toy. She treated André so
badly... and his mother-in-law was the worst. She would put him down all the
time. In front of other people, no less."
continued, "André was a good man and worked hard. He was working on a big
project for the city. He worked night and day on the project and told me it was
going to put Golden Lake on the map.
absolutely adored his daughter, too. I remember that clearly. She was his everything."
Alfred paused, apparently lost in his thoughts. With a sigh he said,
"There was a scandal with the project, though, and André got fired. Soon
after, Dara left him, took Katherine with her and André fell apart. He started
drinking heavily and, without his daughter, his life fell apart."
looked at me and I fought to keep from throwing my hand over my mouth. There
was purple fire in his eyes and I felt his anger. I already knew the story of
André and I tried to smile at him.

necklace, before I could stop the physical reaction. The necklace weighed
heavily as did my heart. He would be fighting at my side soon.

know. André was sleeping at the office and drinking all the time. He was
supposed to give a presentation to a client and was drunk. He got into a
scuffle with his boss and rumor has it, André punched him."

Than is to blame. I don't know how I

promise I won't be a hothead and I won't be rash." Then, he laid his
forehead on mine and whispered, "Please don't cry, darling. Please."

Mary, you will never lose me! Do you hear me? I am by your side now and forever."
with emotion, Joe kissed me.

she was two years old, she would stand at the top of the stairs and tell him a
story filled with emotion (and in a language foreign to him) with her hands on

MR N. She is blissfully happy and loves all things chocolate, books, music,
movies, art, sports and baking. Her mantra is to spread the Light.
Most of the time you can find her on Twitter or
getting new ideas on how to spread the Light on Pinterest. She is a proud
member of ASMSG, Independent Author Network and Marketing for Romance Writers.
Part of the proceeds of Princess of the Light will go
directly to food banks in order to feed the hungry and help those in need. With
only 7,500 books sold, N. N. Light will be able to set up a monthly endowment
for the local food bank.
In addition to being an author, she's also a book
promoter/reviewer and social media marketer. She loves books, has ever since
