Villain: Dinah Renoir

Name: Dinah Renoir

Occupation: Head Seer of the Order of Mages and Inner Circle council member.

Age: Born 1973, thirty-five years old by the time of Lost Days. Like most mages, Dinah is a reincarnate.

Appearance: A tall Parisian with dark brown hair and brown eyes. Fashionable dresser, wearing the finest designers, prefers feminine styles, and wears a veil or hijab when she wishes to hide her identity.

Past: Dinah was discovered before she was even conceived, as her predecessor literally knew where she would be reincarnated. She was taken from her mother the same day she was born and sent to the veil where she mentored under an old seer (a friend from her former life). Dinah’s mentor was the mother figure she never had, became very close to the woman and mourned her passing even before the old woman knew she was going to die.

Throughout her childhood, Dinah received visions of the coming catastrophe. She realized before anyone else that the twin souls of Soja would split once more creating three separate souls: Jude, Daemon, and Eve. She kept this prophesy to herself because she knew the Order would attempt to prevent this from happening. If they succeeded, Hunter would have succeeded in killing Jude and her next incarnation would most certainly submit. She also saw what the demon seer (an Infernal who informed Daemon Hunter of his coming destiny) hadn’t seen: the possibility of Jude submitting to Eve and vise versa. If this were to happen, Jude and Eve’s soul would merge giving them the strength to take Hunter down. Although this would not guarantee Jude or Eve’s soul would remain pure, Dinah felt it was the best option out of many bad ones.

When she was twelve, Dinah foresaw the coming conflict in the alley in New Orleans. Realizing what was to come, she used a spell to hide Eve’s presence from the Order. The spell worked a little too well, hiding the girl from Dinah’s own second sight. She spent the next couple decades searching for Eve. Unable to find her through “legal” channels, Dinah hired Randall Cobb to aid her in her search. She gave him a spell to unbind Soja’s Necronomicon—a magical text that is supposed to follow the twin souls through each incarnation—from a vampire named Lucas, whom it had been entrusted to (takes place in Lost Days, the first book in the series). Dinah later killed Cobb to cover her tracks when his part in the theft was discovered at the beginning of Beguiled (second book in the series). She also may have had a hand in disrupting the ritual that was supposed to bring Hunter back in 2006, fearing he would grow too strong for Jude to defeat when she returned in 2008.

Traits: Flirty and seemingly naïve, Dinah knows more than she lets on. She can be vicious when someone stands in her way, though she rationalizes her actions by telling herself it is all for the greater good and perhaps it is.


  1. Dinah sounds easier to relate to than Veruca, though perhaps more frightening/unnerving for that very fact. :)

Five Things You Didn't Know Could Happen During a Massage

Everyone likes a good massage. Well, almost everyone. There are some that cringe at the very idea of being naked in a room while a total stranger rubs them down. These people are either crazy or have never had a massage before and don't know what they're missing. There are also the ones that like massage a little too much and should feel free to do to themselves what they erroneously believe they are paying me to do to them. Also, read item number 3 of this blog article I wrote in November of 2012 and follow the instructions therein.

But for those of you who are just looking for a nice, perfectly innocent, legal, and in no way rage inducing way to relax, massage is the way to go. That said, there are a few things you should be prepared for before getting that first massage. Things such as...


I once had a client come in for a deep tissue massage who must have eaten a very big, extremely gassy meal right before climbing onto my tab…

Top 5 Things That Drive Your Massage Therapist Crazy

I recently read an article titled 8 Things Your Masseuse Doesn't Want You to Know. After reading it thoroughly, I've come to the conclusion that the LMT's (licensed massage therapists, for those of you not in the know) interviewed either haven’t been in the business for very long, or really hate their jobs. For example, one of the items mentioned that most massage therapists get scared when their clients snore. I don't buy that. I think if a client is relaxed enough to fall asleep on my table, I'm doing a damn fine job. Isn't snoring like applause for massage therapists? It is to me.
It got me to thinking of my own personal pet peeves though, so I tried googling Things Your LMT Hates or Things That Drive Your Masseuse to Drinking, but these searches provided no useful data, and quite frankly I’d like to know what insane, perverted monkey Google put in charge of their search engine for me to come up with this list:

Since Google failed me miserably, I thought I wou…

Facebook PM Mating Call 2: Take the Hint Perv

If the internet has taught me anything over the years, it's this: No matter how unattractive you think you are, no matter how homely you might be, there will always be that one pervert who will whack off to your profile picture and beg you for cyber sex in a Facebook private message chat. And chances are, this pervert will misspell everything he types and mangle the English language beyond recognition. I consider myself an understanding, open minded person. People get lonely. I get that. If you never ask, you'll never know. But when someone tells you they're married and not interested in your need to "take out sperm", you should take what they say at face value and try to hit up someone else. Especially when they tell you they have a history of blogging morons who won't take no for an answer. Case in point:
