Ten Things I’ve Learned About Love by Being the Grim Reaper
By Charley Davidson
Grim Reaper

1. Love is everlasting. When humans pass, all the loves they’ve had in their lifetime surface. They get to relive the joys from their first crush to the first kiss with their soul mates. It is a most exquisite agony. 
2. Love is encouragement. It never belittles, diminishes or discredits. It’s only true happiness lies in the edification of its recipient. 
3. Love is an addiction for which there is no cure. Humans love to be in love. The endorphins that flow through us cause a special kind of euphoria. One that we crave and on many levels need. 

4. Love is a battlefield. According to Pat Benatar. 
5. Love is friendship on fire. 

6. Love is the sacrifice of our own desires for the good of our other. 
7. Love is a hurricane. It is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, can drown you in its force, and calms only when we think we can handle no more. 

8. Love is anything but jealous. Jealousy is a combination of immaturity and insecurity. When those emotions prevail, there is no room left for true love. 

9. Love really does conquer all. 

10. “Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence.” —HL Mencken

Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones
Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet (Charley Davidson, #4)Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane. The more they refute the woman’s story, the more Charley believes it.
In the meantime, the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, has been cleared of all charges. He is out of prison and out of Charley’s life, as per her wishes and several perfectly timed death threats. But his absence has put a serious crimp in her sex life. While there are other things to consider, like the fact that the city of Albuquerque has been taken hostage by an arsonist, Charley is having a difficult time staying away. Especially when it looks like Reyes may be involved. Just when life was returning to normal, Charley is thrust back into the world of crime, punishment, and the devil in blue jeans.


  1. I've learned that love forgives everything and can transcend any barrier.

  2. I've learned that you cannot love others until you learn to love (and accept) yourself. Happy Valentine's Day!

  3. I agree with the above two posts. Love your books! Thanks for the contest.

  4. Love is WORK! One of my fave quotes, Love is a like a garden if you tend it, it will blossom. If you don't, it will become overgrown with weeds and die.

  5. That's good stuff Charlie! :) I've learned that love can be joyful and fulfilling and painful sometimes all at the same time but sometimes the best kind is more than just a straight line of perfection.

  6. Jessica and Elizabeth - those are both great! Thanks for visiting!

  7. thanks for the chance to win :)


  8. Thanks for having Charley on today, ladies! The FFL banner is great!!! Love the theme. <3

  9. Great post! #4 cracks me up! haha! Love this series!!

  10. So many different powers out in the world, but above all, the greatest is love in all its forms. <3 <3 <3 The Fools for Luv event has been wonderful Steph and Dana! Darynda and Charley, there's a special place in my heart for you <3 <3 <3

  11. I love this! One of my all time favorite series!

  12. I have learned that even though love changes from different people in your life, it never truly leaves and without those different loves - we may not be who we are today!


  13. I learned that your heart chooses who you love and that its better to listen to your heart, otherwise you will never be happy. I also learned that with the right person, love can give a person hope, courage, and clarity in life and also encourage you when your feeling lost. I am looking forward to March 5 and the next installment in the Darklight trilogy! Happy Valentines Day! ;)

  14. Love comes in so many different forms. For me it comes down to who has my back at the end of the day! Love your books Darynda! Anxiously awaiting the next Davidson book!

  15. I have learned that you always have room in your heart to love more people... I thought that nobody could take hubbys place in my heart until i had our eldest son and that i had more than enough love to go around... And when my youngest was born... I didn't have to lessen my love for hubby or Davey i just had to open my heart even more to give equal love to my youngest... Love is the strongest feeling in the world it can over come both anger and sadness and have you knowing you are truly blessed.

  16. Friends - I am so glad to see so much wisdom on love. It's awesome.

  17. I have learned to love fictional characters!! Especially Reyes...yum...

  18. I've learned that love is worth fighting for. Which leads me to agree with number four: Love IS a battlefield. Lol.

  19. I know what love is every time I look at my kids. They are the light in my world

  20. I have learned that love can come your way even when you aren't looking for it and it might be in the strangest of places that you find it.
