By the time Mojo Queen begins Roxie and Daniel have a well-developed friendship. Daniel is used to Roxie sneaking the occasional glance at his aura to make sure he’s nice and calm, even though he doesn’t much like it. Roxie is used to Daniel adding shots of O positive to his mixed drinks, even though it still makes her feel a little seasick. They have some good times together even with their differences. Daniel misses eating and loves to take Roxie to a nice restaurant, just so she can describe the food to him. Roxie likes having him along on cases with her when she’s working at night. It’s nice to have someone along who isn’t scared of, well, anything.
It’s that comfort in the dark that really brings them together and makes for a strong friendship. Since her own paranormal ability began to manifest when she was a teenager Roxie has mostly lived outside the mainstream, more at ease in the spirit-filled night than the daytime world of prosaic normalcy. It’s cost her any semblance of a real relationship with her family and before finding Daniel she felt very alone in the world. Daniel felt much the same way, living his life alone in the shadows. They can accept things about each other that others cannot.
Roxie and Daniel have a strong, solid friendship grounded in love, respect, and a mutual home in the supernatural night. Daniel’s not scared of Roxie’s strange abilities and she’s not afraid of him being a vampire. In fact there’s only one thing about Daniel that does scare Roxie: his taste in music. Daniel belting out a loud off-key karaoke version of some classic country like Conway Twitty or Kenny Rogers is the stuff of Roxie’s nightmares.
As for that shady sorcerer that’s caught Roxie’s attention – he’d better be careful or he’ll see another side of Daniel. While he may not be like other vampires, Daniel is still a vampire. He won’t hesitate to use his fangs when he feels the need.
Fun-loving, protective, accepting – sometimes a vampire can be a girl’s best friend
Hoodoo and high magic are on a collision course.
Roxanne Mathis isn't like everyone else. Not only can she see auras and spectral entities, she can mix herbs and roots for spells to do good or ill. She can even light a candle without the benefit of a match. But when she’s hired to exorcise a demon from a young girl, she discovers the limits of her powers.
With her vampire cousin at her side and a sexy sorcerer chasing her on the rebound, Roxie sets out to send that evil entity back to where she came from.
Nothing is as it seems and Roxie’s in over her head. It’s not going to be enough for her to just be a paranormal investigator and old school root worker – to defeat this demon, she’s going to have to be the Mojo Queen.
