About the Author
Brenda is unlike most authors since she only began writing a few years ago. Her first book Fates, an adult fantasy, was published in 2010. Her love for reading fantasy, paranormal, and contemporary erotic romance has caused her to discard her Bachelor’s degrees in management and marketing in order to write full time. Currently, Brenda has twelve books published (one of which is free!) She is an Amazon top 50 author for Brothers By Bond and an Amazon top 20 author for Not For Sale. Her newest release, Highest Bidder, is the sequel to Not For Sale and available August 2013. Brenda resides in Tampa, FL when not attending conventions and is the Chapter Coordinator for the Tampa Bay O.G.R.E.s, as well as a volunteer with the Tampa Bay Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. She is also an active member in organizing the Florida Leather Fetish Pride weekend and an associate member of the Tampa Leather Club, as well as their event coordinator for Alt Life Bike Fest. She would love to hear from you! Visit her on the following: Website: www.BCothernBooks.com Facebook: Brenda Cothern Books Facebook Fan Page: Brenda Cothern Books, Inc.

Yep, that’s right, Sin is a lust demon. Even though she’s not hurting anyone, it’s an angel’s duty to rid the world of demons. However Cham sees his duty a little differently – rather than banishing the demon back to hell, he attempts to “rehabilitate” them by teaching them about love. As much as I loved this concept, I didn’t realize how important Cham’s approach was until Kiel arrived on the scene and decided to destroy the lust demon, sight unseen – hence the Destroyer moniker. Kiel’s attitude actually surprised me because of how much it differed from Cham’s genuine interest in getting to know Sin, and boy did they ever get to know each other! Good and Evil in bed together equals sinfully hot sex scenes. But when an angel and a demon find their other half in each other, that’s a love story even better than the hot sex.
I will say that it still baffles me that the employees of Shadows can work together for a year or more and never suspect that the others aren’t human. While I’m sure that Alec knows which of his employees are norms and which aren’t, there seems to be an automatic assumption among the staff that all new hires are norms. Usually this makes for some rather entertaining reveals. However, when Kiel’s arrival sent Sin into escape mode, the reveal was not the least bit funny as Nick was not only confronted with Sin’s true form, but also with a blast of lust that nearly caused him to rape Sin – at least that was the scene Jordy encountered. I have to say that even as great as the wedding was, how intense the battle between Cham and Kiel was, how heartbreaking Cham’s sacrifice was, and how heartwarming the end was, the scene I probably enjoyed most of all was when Kira put Kiel in his place – there was just something about itty, bitty, underestimated Kira handing Kiel his @ss that I REALLY enjoyed. As I have previously read Shattered Illusions, I must now wait and hope that Ms. Cothern writes another installment in the Shadows series. Until then, I can enjoy rereads of the series when the need to visit the Shadows nightclub hits me.
I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
