I am seeking representation for my novel, The Nativity, a 75 000 word paranormal romance.
When Mary is visited by an angel telling her that she is to become magically impregnated with the child foretold by ancient prophesy, she is stunned, but not as stunned as her boyfriend Joseph. Ordered to travel to Jerusalem by their Roman overlords to take part in the census, Mary and Joseph set out on a borrowed donkey on the difficult journey. Upon their arrival in Jerusalem, the only accommodation they can afford is in a stable.
Meanwhile, three wise kings, seeking to pay homage to the as yet unborn child, make the mistake of alerting evil King Herod to the imminent birth. Herod, mad with the desire to retain his power, orders the massacre of every male child born in Jerusalem. Mary and Joseph are forced to flee their homeland in an attempt to save their newborn son from what even the angels believe is his destiny: death in Jerusalem. With angels and kings and heaven itself set against them, Mary and Joseph struggle not only to protect their son, but also their own burgeoning relationship.
The Nativity is an epic tale of love and betrayal, set against the vivid backdrop of Roman-occupied Judea. I believe that it would appeal to readers who loved the Twilight saga and Hush, Hush.
Okay, so it was night work and I was tired, but it's still a good story, right?
Whatever your beliefs, I hope you have a great Christmas and get the chance to spend time with the people you love. Happy holidays!
