Say hello to two ladies of Dove Creek, Remington Hart and Jocelyn Benton. Remi is the main character in the Dove Creek Chronicles by H. Anne Henry, and Joss is one of her closest friends and allies. Eavesdrop on a little of their “girl talk” as they ask each other questions from a list they found in a magazine.
Joss: “What’s your greatest indulgence? Besides sci-fi movies, because we all know that.”
Remi: “Besides sci-fi movies? Red Draws, of course.”
Joss: “Yup, thought so. Still don’t know how you drink ‘em, though.”
Remi: “There’s just something about ice cold beer and tomato juice in the summer. They slip right down when it starts to feel like somebody lit the fires of Hell in our back yard.”
Joss: “I’d still rather have a strawberry margarita any day.”
Remi: “Okay, here’s a good one. What traits do you find important in a friend?”
Joss: “Oh, you know, the biggies . . . Loyalty, honesty, a willingness to let me overhaul your hair, make-up, and wardrobe.”
Remi: “So, me.”
Joss: “You’re a quick one. The Force is strong with you.”
Remi: “Be still my heart.”
Joss: “Your turn. What’s your most notable characteristic?”
Remi: “I’m stubborn.”
Joss: “Lady, that’s a disturbing understatement. You’re downright bull-headed.”
Remi: “What’s your most meaningful possession?”
Joss: “Your brother.”
Remi: “Ugh. No. Just, no.”
Joss: “Alright, alright. My car. It’s the first thing I bought for myself after my divorce, and it’s the first brand new car I’ve ever had.”
Joss: “Last one . . . What brings you the greatest happiness in life? And you’d better not say killing demons.”
Remi: “No, that just brings me satisfaction, not happiness.”
Joss: “So what does?”
Remi: “Well, it’s kinda related to killing demons, but... Being Amasai. Not because of what we do, but because of who we are. We’re a family.”
Joss: “Now don’t go getting sentimental on me.”
Remi: “What? You gonna get misty-eyed? ‘Cause I don’t have any tissues.”
About the Book - Once Broken
Demon hunter Remington 'Remi' Hart likes to think she’s seen a thing or two. That’s what happens when you live in a town like Dove Creek, where the supernatural world abounds and the townsfolk are willfully ignorant of it. But when the Triple Six show up -- flesh and blood human beings with powerful, superhuman abilities -- Remi and the rest of her allies, the Amasai, are thrown for a loop.
Old and new enemies alike come at them head on, forcing the Amasai to recognize that they are outnumbered and outgunned. Before Dove Creek is overrun, they have to find a way to solve the mystery of the new dark power and quell its source.
During all of this, Remi is still coming to grips with the death of her husband three years ago, dealing with her barely understood feelings for the werewolf who saved her life, and flirting with the smoking hot cowboy of the Amasai who is currently pursuing her. Remi will set her personal feelings aside, though, when the bodies start piling up and her own family is threatened. What started out as a quest for vengeance soon becomes a fight for survival.
