The Graveyard Shift (Novella)

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Darynda Jones comes a new story in her Charley Davidson series…

Guarding a precocious five-year-old who is half-human, half-god, and 100% destined to save the world is no easy feat.

Swopes was the ultimate skeptic until he met a certain hellion and her
husband. They vanished after stopping a catastrophic event and left him,
a mere mortal, in charge of protecting their gift to mankind. But when
she disappears as well, he needs the help of another breed of hellion.
One who can see past the veil of space and time. One who betrayed him.

She will get a truce in the deal, but she will never earn his forgiveness.

Dubois’s son—a warrior in the coming war between heaven and hell—was
foreseen long before his birth. But to create a child strong enough to
endure the trials that lay ahead, she needed a descendant of powerful
magics. She found that in Garrett Swopes and tricked him into fathering
her son. A ploy he has never forgiven her for. But when he knocks on her
door asking for her help, she sees the fierce attraction he tries to
deny rise within him.

And Marika has to decide if she dares risk her heart a second time to help the only man she’s ever loved.

1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s
an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in
the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**
