When the workshop ends, I’ll always have a few who wait patiently through all the goodbyes to have a word with me.

Andre, a punished servant of Hades is forced to acquire souls on earth to appease his sentence, but he falls for a college cheerleader named Dalia, who exposes feelings and actions that threaten his existence and soon hers. Dalia can’t figure out who the “new guy” on the cheer team is, but she wants nothing to do with him. Mostly because she’s mad hot for him. After a broken heart both romantically and from a more personal place involving her best friend’s small daughter, she isn’t ready to give up what’s left of her heart anyway. But one night of partying reveals too much and soon, neither one of them can ignore the longing stirring between them and are sucked into a world of love, danger, death, and some of the most difficult choices they’ll have to make. -HEARTBEAT by Julia Bade
