Thanks for stopping by today. I'm hosting Christine Pope's Dark Angel Blog Tour & Giveaway presented by Book Monster Promotions.
Top 10 Things You Should Know About Angela McAllister:
She has been designated the next prima, or head witch, of her clan because of her strong powers.
Her greatest power is being able to talk to ghosts.
Because she’s the next prima and is expected to bind with a warlock consort, she’s a virgin and doesn’t have much experience with men, beyond having to share the ritual kiss to determine whether a man is her intended consort.
She tends to live vicariously through her best friend Sydney, who is much more experienced – and also not a witch.
Angela’s mother died when she was only two months old.
She doesn’t know who her father is.
She was born in California but brought back to Arizona as a very small infant.
For the past five years she’s been dreaming of a man, but she’s never been able to see his face clearly. She only knows that he has green eyes.
She works in her aunt’s shop and also makes jewelry.
She doesn’t get out much because of the very real possibility that the Wilcoxes, another witch clan, may try to kidnap her to gain control of her powers.

Jerome, Arizona, isn't just one of the most haunted places in America—it's also home to the McAllister witches and their extended clan. Angelica McAllister is the prima, the most powerful witch in her clan, but even she has to be on her guard, as the warlocks from a rival clan want nothing more than to capture her and bond her powers with theirs. To prevent this catastrophe, Angelica is expected to marry a compatible man from her clan. Never mind that she's not interested in any of them, and is instead haunted by the face of a man she's seen only in her dreams.
Finding the man of your dreams can be a real nightmare….
As the future prima, or head witch of her clan, Angela McAllister is expected to bond with her consort during her twenty-first year, thus ensuring that she will come into her full powers at the appointed time. The clock is ticking down, and her consort has yet to make an appearance. Instead, her dreams are haunted by a man she’s never seen, the one she believes must be her intended match.
But with time running out, and dark forces attempting to seize her powers for their own, Angela is faced with a terrible choice: give up her dreams of the man she may never meet and take the safer path, or risk leaving her clan and everyone in it at the mercy of those who seek their ruin.
Darkangel is the first book in The Witches of Cleopatra Hill, a paranormal romance trilogy set in the haunted town of Jerome, Arizona.
A native of Southern California, Christine Pope has been writing stories ever since she commandeered her family’s Smith-Corona typewriter back in the sixth grade. Her short fiction has appeared in Astonishing Adventures, Luna Station Quarterly, and the journal of dark fiction, Dark Valentine. Two of her short stories have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.
Christine writes as the mood takes her, and her work includes paranormal romance, and fantasy and science fiction/space opera romance. She blames this on being easily distracted by bright, shiny objects, which could also account for the size of her shoe collection. After spending many years in the magazine publishing industry, she now works as a freelance editor and graphic designer in addition to writing fiction. She fell in love with Sedona, Arizona, while researching the Sedona Trilogy and now makes her home there, surrounded by the red rocks. No alien sightings, though...not yet, anyway!
