Bruce Sahwyn is a 600 year old demon, the overlord of paranormal creatures in North America. He's also gorgeous, hunky, and owns a hair salon in Washington D.C., from which vantage point he keeps tabs on the movers and shakers of all species, human and otherwise.
Angelique Shandie is a young but powerful witch who just moved to D.C. with her best friend to open a boutique. She has no idea who Bruce is or the power structure of the hidden magical world, but from the moment their eyes meet they both feel the intensity of the connection. Bruce is thoroughly intrigued, until he realizes exactly who Angie is: the sheltered baby sister of his most trusted and powerful assassin (oops) which makes pursuing this particular witch a life and death sort of decision, literally. Except he can't live without her, consequences be damned.
The author creates a paranormal world within the contemporary world that is hidden from most humans and brutal in its rules, prejudices and hierarchies. For an overlord demon to seriously date a witch is unprecedented, but the heat that sizzles between these characters is undeniable (and fun to read.) Angie is a strong-willed heroine, not one to submit to any man, not even a 600 year old demon.
This was right up my alley. I really enjoyed the characters and the storyline, and think this book is a strong start for a series. Despite some unanswered questions and a few dangling loose ends (thus the need for a next book, hint hint, Ms. Stetler) the romance wraps up nicely and the main issues come to satisfying resolution. And despite the dark natures of many of the characters, the book itself is never too dark or gory, giving readers just enough suspense and tension to satisfy. If you enjoy paranormal romance, definitely check this one out.
*Note* I've read a few reviews that list this as a book for young adults. No. It's not. Maybe those reviewers don't understand genre categories of paranormal romance, but the characters and situations are definitely adult in nature, both the romance and the politics. New adult fans of True Blood may enjoy this novel, but this isn't YA by any stretch.
I swear 80% of this book felt like foreplay. Tease, tease, and (wait for it) yes more teasing. Heck, I think I was about to take myself a cold shower. JK... not really. :)
Speaking of Bom Chicka Wah Wah, after Bruce and Angie finally consummated their relationship, I was waiting for the epic fight once Tristan found out. He blew his stack, but the fight was over as quick as it begun. Kind of a let down.
On a positive note, how much do I adore watching Bruce's parents interact. Those two prove opposites do in fact attract. Seriously, you can't get more opposite than them. *wink wink*
Oh, one more thing, sexxxxxy cover. I totally approve of it. ;)
> This is a standalone novel with an HEA.
>This story takes place in the present, where paranormal creatures hide in plain sight among humans. Angie is a witch who meets her mate, Bruce. Bruce is a Demon Overlord. Angie and Bruce begin to get to know one another and decide to mate. Many creatures are against their decision, due to prejudice. This story did have a lot of action, but the final showdown was a bit of a let down. There was also a lot of description on the every day minutia instead of anything that moves the plot forward.
>I did like the way Bruce and Angie had to learn to compromise. Both characters were very strong willed and their conflicts made for an interesting read. I would have liked to read more of Tristian, Angie's brother. His prejudice was a little extreme and I wish we had more background to help understand his anger.
>I am a reviewer for the Paranormal Authors and Romance that Rocks. This story is appropriate for an adult audience.
