The Demon Lord of California
Infinity 8 book one
What's a wounded and sweet, lonely, little cinnamon roll to do?
Demon Lord of California
And there it was. That subtle order beset Agustin with unease. "Woo him how?" Agustin demanded. "I told Harper I will no longer be whored out for the benefit of the Corporation."
The God of Space and Time
"You know the ruse, my brother." Calico piped more frosting atop the spongy cake, creating a small mountain of swirls. "Place that cap on your head and masquerade as myself. We cannot lose the business over my offensive voice."
Stripped of his psychic powers, Calico Winghorse barely made it to 19th century Earth via his interdimensional portal. As a mixed-blood phoenix concealing himself in human form, he opens a bakery in the San Francisco Bay Area and quietly nurses his wounds. But the unique method of his escape has drawn the unwanted attention of Infinity Corporation.
Representing this angelic-run company is Agustin Chavez de la Cruz, the Demon Lord of California. Even though Agustin is the corporation's heir, he finds himself demoted from his daily duties for a new assignment: take absolute control of the portal.
As Agustin formulates a more gracious avenue of acquiring Calico's gateway, the demanding head of IC interferes, further complicating matters. So negotiations stumble along, all the while Calico ensures that the good people of the city are getting their fill of baked goods.
Yet due to Calico's injuries, the portal remains vulnerable to the darker forces that want it at any cost. Agustin will have to push both his angelic heritage, and his own psychic powers to the very limits to mend someone who not only bears celestial blood, but who is also the god of space and time.
