The past doesn’t like to play dead…

Handsome and haunted, he’s a reaper who prefers to work alone. But Fate has other plans for him and the sassy secret agent who shot him in another life—if their pasts don’t catch up with them first.  

Dmitri Stavitsky has never played well with others—a Soviet KGB spy in life turned reaper after death, his work of bringing souls to the other side is best done alone. But orders from the top soon place him alongside fellow reaper Gwen Peterson, the American counterintelligence agent who took his life so many years ago. Now, as a ghost from Gwen’s past resurfaces with the power to steal reapers’ souls, the two have no choice but to set aside their differences and apprehend the rogue together. But their cross-country mission soon ignites feelings Dmitri thought he was no longer capable of—for the woman who helped destroy him.  

With an ancient force and a small army against them, he’ll have to let go of old grudges or risk his future with Gwen…as Fate hangs dangerously in the balance.

Growing up the youngest of three girls, Lori never had control of the remote. (Not that she's bitter about that. Really. Okay, maybe a little, but it's not like she's scarred for life or anything.) That meant a steady diet of science fiction and fantasy. Star Trek, Star Wars, Twilight Zone, Outer Limits - you name it, she watched it. It fed her imagination, and that came in handy when the hormones kicked in and she needed a creative excuse for being out past curfew.

After completing her first novel, she joined the Romance Writers of America and Central Florida Romance Writers. Now she exercises the analytical half of her brain at her day job, and the creative half writing sensual paranormal romance. Grim reapers are her specialty, but she loves to write about all creatures of the night.


Q & A with Author Lori Sjoberg

Q:  Tell us a little bit about your main characters.
  Dmitri and Gwen are reapers – damned souls who have been given one final chance at redemption by harvesting the souls of the recently departed. As mortals, they were sworn enemies—Dmitri was a spy for the KGB while Gwen worked as a counterintelligence agent for the FBI. But now they’re forced to work together to take down a rogue reaper, and if they can find a way to like each other, they might just fall in love.

Q:  Describe your ideal writing spot.
  On the couch with my feet on the coffee table and a tall glass of Diet Mountain Dew at the ready. Ahhhhh…

Q:  Who designed the covers for your book and what was that process like for you as the author?
The cover for Grave Vengeance was designed by my publisher. Before the process began, my editor asked for my input – how the hero and heroine appeared in my mind, what the feel of the cover should convey, etc. I gave him a collection of pictures I’d amassed during the writing process, and out of that came the actual cover.

Q:  Which do you prefer: hard/paperbacks or ebooks?
  I love all three formats, but I have to admit that I’m a sucker for the feel of a paperback in my hands. There’s just something about the texture and the smell of paper that I love, not to mention I enjoy being unplugged from all things electronic when I’m trying to relax after a long day.
