Seven days to go from lethal immortal assassin to Prince Charming? Not likely.
Demigod Andrus Gray may look like every woman’s dream, but when it comes to charm, he sees no point pretending: He has none and makes no apologies for it. Behaving nicely hasn’t made him the deadly assassin he is today. But is that really the reason he’s still single?
The Goddess Cimil—owner of Immortal Matchmakers, Inc.—thinks yes. So when she foresees a mate in Andrus’s near future, she’s determined to make the match happen. That means hiring aspiring actress Sadie Townsend to help the barbarian “act” a little more civilized.
But are seven days really enough? And why does the idea of seeing Sadie everyday excite him more than meeting his mate?

She pressed her ear to the door.
The sound was deep and throaty, almost like the sound of a man…well, getting off.
He cupped her hands over her mouth. I can’t believe this guy. The clock was ticking and it was really rude to keep someone waiting so he could wank it.
She gave the door another hard knock. “Listen, buddy, if you’re doing anything but dying, you’d better open this door, or I’m leaving. And I’m pretty sure you don’t want that.”
The man groaned again, but this time the sound was so deep and hard, it sent shivers up her spine and down to her nether region. His voice was just so damned sexy.
What? Sadie. What’s wrong with you?
“Oh. Come on, buddy!” Knock. Knock. Knock. “Can’t you do that later?”
She suddenly heard some rustling and then the sound of something large thumping on the floor. The door flew open and a huge man, wearing partially unzipped leather pants, stood panting in the doorway, no underwear, his pants barely holding to his hips and slung low on his muscular torso. She could see a dark patch of hair and the base of his cock, which looked hard as hell, straining against the inside of his pants.
She gulped. The man was hung.
Her eyes moved up over the snug fabric of his black T-shirt, the muscles of his chest and arms stretching it to its limits. She was sure this guy was some sort of weight lifter or martial arts enthusiast. Or the next Thor. Just like Bob had said.
When her eyes finally got to his face, two intense turquoise eyes burned right through her, stopping her breath for several heartbeats until her brain registered the fact that it was the same face who’d visited her the last two evenings in two unwelcome, very erotic dreams.
“So we meet again, meat wench.” His sinful lips flashed a smug little smile. “Why am I not surprised to see you here begging for more?”

What is the hardest part about writing supernatural characters? What is your favorite part?
The hardest part is remembering all of the crap I’ve made up and ensuring it all knits together. Over time, especially for the longer series, it gets harder and harder to keep it all straight. My favorite part is that the only limit is your imagination. The other thing I love is using a reader’s own expectations of the paranormal genre to surprise them. What I mean is that most of us paranormal fans read a lot, and I know what you’re reading! I can figure out an angle that will surprise you because I know how to make a part of my story feel like you’re going down a path you’ve gone down before and then…BAM! Let’s go somewhere else. It’s so much fun.
Of your cast, who would you most like to meet for drinks?
It would be a toss-up between King (because he’s so evil and sexy), Votan (because he’s the God of Death and War and could tell me about all of the other gods from his own POV), and Bennett Wade (you’ll get to meet him August of 2016, but he’s the sweetest jerk I’ve ever written—I want one!).
Do you do lots of outlining when you write, do you wing it?
I do a little outlining, but then I let the creative process flow. It is SO much fun, and it’s so exciting to know we’ve got to go from point A to point B in a story, but not how the characters will get there. Surprises always pop up along the way that are much better than anything I could pre-plan. I’ve found that detailed outlining takes the fun out of writing—I need to feel some suspense along the way since every story is like watching a movie someone else has written. I’m just trying to capture everything I see. Sounds strange, but it’s true.
If you were casting your dream team for an Immortal Matchmakers film, who would play Andrus? What about Sadie?
Oh boy. I love this game. But! I can never decide. For Andrus, I really see him as that guy on my cover. But I have two other dudes on my Pinterest page. https://www.pinterest.com/mimijeanromance/men-from-my-books/
For Sadie, I guess I see her as cute, thin, athletic brunette—maybe like a Nina Dobrev (“Elena” from Vampire Diaries) or slightly younger Jennifer Connelly, but honestly? Who the hell cares? It’s the hunky hero that matters! (Plug self into heroine slot and call it a day.)
