Catch and Release, a romance/suspense novel, is the story of two lives from vastly different backgrounds, drawn together by fate and a common love of the great outdoors. The crossing of Jennifer and Steve’s paths releases an explosion of love, passion, adventure and ultimately a reason for a shared journey. Within 24 hours, they catch a few trout, have a passionate affair, shoot and kill a man, are involved in two gun battles, receive wounds and end up in Miami, Florida. All this, and as Steve says, they still have six days of vacation left. Their relationship touches long-buried feelings in Jennifer, while shattering the mundane existence suffocating Steve.
In this bold re-imagining of Dante's Divine Comedy, the Old Testament demon Astaroth forges an unlikely alliance with Mona, a human soul he's supposed to tempt into damnation.
Several thousand years ago, a routine temptation goes awry and Mona — a young Hopi woman — saves the life of a snake who happens to be Astaroth's adored pet. The encounter sparks a crisis for Astaroth when he breaks a cardinal rule of Hell and must prove to his fellow demons that he still has what it takes to be part of Hell's inner circle.
Across Mona's multiple incarnations on the Purgatory (Earth), the demon and the human come to rely on each other in ways that neither anticipated, culminating in a tour of Hell that will change them both forever.
