Book Description

She's No Angel

A bodyguard? Why in the world would a demon need a bodyguard? Yes,

it's true Ellina Kostova is only half demon. . .and an author with a cult following, but that just

means strange stuff happens. She isn't in real danger. Heck, she's in more danger from Jude

Anthony, the guy her brother has hired to protect her. In big danger, actually. Because she just

cannot be attracted to. . .well, anyone. She's too much of a demon in bed. No, really.

Jude has grown accustomed to being an outcast, adrift in both the mortal and

preternatural worlds. Being a paid fighting machine isn't glamorous, but he does it--and many

other things--spectacularly well. And man does Ellina Kostova need a lot of protection. But he

needs protection, too. She's making him remember what it feels like to be human. And he's

already learned no good can come of that. Especially when he's been hired not only to protect

her--
but also kill her. . .

"Fangs for the Memories will make you laugh until milk

comes out of your nose. No, really."
--MaryJanice Davidson



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Adorably naïve and introverted half-demon author Ellina Kostova finds herself sharing her New Orleans home with vampire-werewolf bodyguard Jude Anthony, hired by her brother to protect her from a mysterious stalker. Mutual attraction blossoms, but arousal causes Ellina to sprout embarrassing horns and shiny red scales, while Jude is afraid to mix business and pleasure. Love (the Young Brothers series) sadly neglects the potential in the setting, where demons, vampires, and werewolves mix, humans can become supernaturals, and an immortal has mourned his family for 2,000 years. With a hunky bodyguard as a main character, readers will be disappointed by the lack of good supernatural fights, and the mystery also falls flat. The romance is cute and well paced and the principals are warm and engaging, but that can't compensate for the glaring flaws. (Feb.)

What a Demon Wants is book four in Love's saga of New Orleans' supernaturals finding love. And here we get the first supe/supe pairing. The leading lady this time is authoress Ellina (Maksim's sister from book 3 Demon Can't Help It), a reclusive half demon half human crossbreed who maintains calm and control at all times because any type of excitement, including arousal, makes her literally 'horny'. You can imagine the crimp that's put in Ellina's love life, especially since she's attracted to humans and not other supes.

Of course Ellina just hasn't met the right supe yet. That all changes, when after several break-ins at Ellina's home, brother Maksim decides Ellina needs protection. Against Ellina's wishes, Maksim hires paranormal body guard Jude to keep Ellina safe. Even though Jude has a 'thing' against demons, the attraction between the pair is electric. But with Jude's reservations about getting involved with a demon - not to mention a client - in addition to Ellina's 'scaly little problem' - then to top it off, throw in Ellina's mysterious stalker - and it's not clear how things can work out between the pair. Not to worry though, HEA's always find a way, because as every bodyguard knows ... the best way to guard a body is up close - real close.

I liked What A Demon Wants. Both Jude and Ellina are quite appealing as leads and that goes a long way in making this a cute and sexy read. The background stalker story is not much of a mystery for us readers, but even though it was tossed off quickly at the end, I wasn't upset with the resolution of the stalker story line (I thought it was kind of funny).

I usually love Kathy Love but found this book very disappointing. There was a series of let downs and unanswered questions for me. First of all the back cover said he was hired to kill her. That never happened. Why doesnt he sleep? Vampires and Werewolfs sleep. The part where she tells her brothers to stop and they do. Am I the only one that thought she was going to turn out to be more powerful than she knew? And the Big reason he has to take these jobs he hates... buy back his soul?...bring his kid back to life?... No.To open a restaurt???!!! Really??!! And the bad guy who wants to kill her so bad so boring since you kinda know who it is and the reason and resolution behind it was so dull. I hope her next book is better like the other books before this.

3.0 out of 5 stars This Demon Wants More Story In Her Story March 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reclusive author and demon half-breed Ellina Kostova has been beset by bad luck. Her home has been broken into three times in the past three months, books and research have gone missing, she's received weird phone calls, was almost run over by a car, and got stuck in a cat for several months. But really, besides that cat thing, which personally she blames on her trickster demon brothers, the rest can be written off as consequences of being a famous author and living in New Orleans. Her overprotective big brother, on the other hand, isn't quite so cavalier.

Guess that answers the question of why a demon...even a half demon...needs a bodyguard. Not that Ellina agrees. Not that her brother gives her a choice. Though, really, if she had to be stuck with a bodyguard, the sexy Jude Anthony isn't so bad. He's fun to look at, though that way leads to embarrassing hot flashes, scales, and horns... Yeah, that's a downer. So's the fact that the man's all about business, none too forthcoming about himself, and seems to have a distaste for touching demons. And people wonder why she's reclusive...or against having a strange man in her house loomi...er...guarding over her.

When she's attacked in a public restroom, however, disbelief in a threat all too real evaporates like so much smoke, and having Jude around doesn't seem like such a bad idea. When his seemingly icy behavior starts to melt, and his touch starts to turn from protective to possessive, though, a bigger danger looms large. Jude can protect her body...but who is going to protect her heart?

As a general rule, I don't like jumping into the middle of a series. I'm depressingly linear in my reading habits, and I don't like feeling lost in a book's previously established mythos and backstory.

4.0 out of 5 stars entertaining romantic suspense urban fantasy February 22, 2010
Format:Paperback
In New Orleans, Ellina Kostova's older brother Maksin (see demon Can't Help It) explains to her he hired a bodyguard to protect her. She asks her sibling why would a demon, actually a half-demon, like her need a bodyguard though she has a résumé filled with violent encounters. He responds with to keep her safe from her unknown stalker.

Wannabe writer half breed vampire werewolf Jude Anthony moves into Ellina's home to her jubilee as he is a hunk. They are attracted to one another, but her reaction is humiliating as horns and scales appear on her body; he simply ignores his wants as she is a client not a sex partner. As each dances around their desire, the stalker turns dangerous.

This is an entertaining romantic suspense urban fantasy starring two likable individuals. The story line is fast-paced throughout although the romance supersedes the suspense and urban fantasy elements. Still readers will enjoy Kathy Love's fine tale and hope for more in the same setting with a deeper profound look into the emotional state of former mortals turned immortals while those whom you loved turned to dust centuries ago.
