Welcome to Thrilling Thursday! What is that you ask? It’s my little homage to discovering other authors of romantic, tantalizing stories. You can always drop me a line and let me know who you’d like to see more of.
This week’s Thrilling Thursday find is K. Margaret!
Nellie O’Malley has spent her afterlife hunting and killing demonoids. As a slayer she never faced one she couldn’t destroy, until now.
The hunter has become the hunted.
A nameless, faceless enemy stalks her every move. Nellie must find a way to stop the unstoppable before it kills her, or worse, goes after the one person she can’t live without.
He is her best friend, she is his soul.
Nathaniel Ogapoge has been in love with only one woman. Unfortunately, she sees him only as her best friend. With her life now in peril, he will stop at nothing to protect her. Even if it means putting himself in the direct path of evil and risking everything.
One moment, one decision, can change a destiny forever.
All Empusa wanted was to grow up surrounded by the ones she loved, to cherish the world around her, and put a smile on every face she saw. The gods had other plans for her, however. A prophecy would tear her away from everything and everyone she ever knew and throw her into the pits of hell, itself.
Alone and abandoned, she will need find the strength inside her she never knew existed. Because in order to survive, she will have to become what everyone fears and what everyone secretly wants.
Question is, what would Empusa do?
Whispers abound in Gehenna, Zeus knows the empusae is alive and he wants her dead. A war is coming, and a war is exactly what Empusa’s been training her pets for.
Deep down, Empusa only wants one thing—the demise of those who banished her to Hell, and she will stop at nothing to escape and exact her revenge. Traveling the Dream Realm, she spends countless hours searching for her ticket out, and she’s finally found him.
Krael Connolly, the Crown Prince of Gehenna, spends his days researching demons, particularly the elusive empusae, and his nights being visited by his Emmy in his dreams. As the Demon of Vengeance, he fights a battle with his inner demon every day, but his humanity continues to win out…although, the demon of his dreams is testing that control.
He endlessly fights against the dark, while she fights against the light. She calls to his demon as he struggles to bring out her humanity. She lives for chaos, blood and destruction, but he makes her experience something she’d never experienced before—emotions.
But ultimately, what will Empusa do? Whatever hell she wants.

I had the opportunity to ask K. Margaret a few questions. Here are the highlights:
NF: Why did you choose to write your genre?
KM: I love writing paranormal. Being able to create worlds, change others views on certain creatures and mythology is like being a kid in a candy store. Mythology and demonology are two of my favorite things to research, and writing in this genre gives me a chance to further explore my creativity.
NF: What are you currently working on?
KM: I am currently working on two projects. The first is a short story, Silent Nightmare, which features some of the villains in my Dark Dreams series, which I will have up on my website as a free read by summer. My other project is the 3rd book in my Dark Dreams series, which should be out before the end of the year. (Still working on a title for this one).
NF: What was the hardest story for you to write?
KM: The hardest story I ever had to write was Nellie O’Malley’s story in Dare to Dream. The very first chapter tore my heart to pieces and I had a really hard time going back through it to edit it. I’m proud how it turned out though and it was something that needed to be done and a part of her story that needed to be told.
NF: Who has been your favorite character? Why?
KM: The favorite of my characters is a demoness named Empusa. Truthfully, she is my hero. She has been through hell her entire existence but is has only made her stronger and more determined. Nothing gets to her. She’s as cold as ice and fierce as anything you can come across. She doesn’t take crap from anyone and always puts herself first. There is nothing she won’t do to achieve her goals. She has a saying in my series, What Would Empusa Do? Answer? Whatever the f* she wants. Love that woman (even though I probably shouldn’t, lol).
