"Saranna DeWylde has a hit with her new book, How To Lose A Demon in 10 Days.  Her hero, Caspian, can tempt me any day! Intense, hilarious, and just plain fun, this book had me reading long into the night." -Cynthia Eden, Award Winning and National Bestselling Author of Angel of Darkness


Demons, hot romance, snort milk through your nose laughter and peanut butter, oh, my! ~Dakota Cassidy author of The Accidental Series

About the Author

Saranna DeWylde is a full time Amazon Goddess and former corrections officer who decided she'd seen enough shanks and skanks. Originally a horror writer, having written her first story at her 8th birthday party in colored pencil after watching The Exorcist, she further decided that her dark quill was meant for Happily Ever After instead of the things that grab your feet if they hang off the end of the bed. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

In a last ditch effort to give her ex-boyfriend, the Russian Mobster the comeuppance he deserves, Grace summons a demon to do her will. Of course she gets much more than she bargains for when Caspian, the Crown Prince of Hell shows up. In their bargaining, Grace had been expecting a price, but she never could have imagined Caspian's demands to be so carnal. But if sleeping with a denizen of hell is bad, falling for one is even worse, and she has only 10 days to get rid of him before it is too late.

Based on the description, I imagined this book would have a tongue in cheek kind of humor, but I never would have predicted the hilarity that greeted me from page one. I mean come on, a demon who is trying to act all badass should never ever say the word frolicking in reference to himself. Kinda bursts all shreds of credibility from the start, especially as Grace labeled him metrosexual and was worried about him "bibbity-bopping along," even as he had a serious case of ADD due to her breasts. All that in just the first few pages, and things only got "worse" from there. There was one point involving peanuts and a very compromising position that left tears streaming down my face because I was laughing so hard. I can't remember the last time I read a book this funny, and it was a nice change of pace from the darker books I typically read. I mean, don't get me wrong, this book isn't just "fluff" as the overall plot is quite dark in its own right, it's just that the humor plays such a large role that it greatly overshadowed the danger.

I really enjoyed watching Grace and Caspian grow and change in this book. Caspian started out so full of himself and absolutely carefree in his emotions, or rather the lack thereof. However that all changed once Grace came into his life.

REVIEW ORIGINALLY POSTED AT BITTEN BY BOOKS REVIEW SITE [...]

Grace is a woman scorned. Her Russian mobster ex-boyfriend kidnapped her son and has refused to let her see him in four years. A woman can only take so much before she reaches a breaking point, especially when that woman is the granddaughter of one of the most powerful witches to walk this earth. Grandma didn't raise no fool, so Grace knows exactly what she's doing when she summons Caspian, one of the Crown Princes of Hell. She refuses to take his word, forces him to sign the contract in blood, and even keeps from slapping the smug off his face when he names his price for helping her: in order to exact vengeance, Grace must sleep with Caspian. Problem is, Grace's ex threatens to kill their son if she doesn't get rid of her demonic lover in ten days. What's a girl to do when she's stuck between a rock and a hard demon?

The main focus of How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days by Saranna DeWylde is on Grace, Caspian, and their struggles to gain custody of Grace's son. (Warning: if you're cursed with Mommy Emotions, this whole plot arch is going to make you scream to the heavens in agony.) We also have the typical romance element of several other relationships developing throughout the main storyline that include a sadistic mob boss and the dead hookers who no longer love him, an undead evil witch and her lover, and Hades and his heart of tarnished gold, among others. Each one added to the flow of the story and the development of the characters, but their epilogue was a little too cute for me. Keep in mind: I laughed my sizable ass off with the demonic crabs went after a character's nether regions, so I'm a dark and twisted mind. Just because cutesy isn't my thing doesn't mean it won't be yours.

How to Lose a Demon in 10 Days is one of the funniest books I've read in a very long time. Grace has ten days to shake her Russian mobster ex and save her son. So what does Grace do? She summons a demon to do her bidding, and what she gets is not just any demon but Caspian who is not just any old demon but the Prince of Hell. Add in an entire cast that runs the gamut from a dead hooker turned dominatrix demon gunning for his soul to the devil himself and you have a laugh a minute ride. Typically a book this funny loses the romance side of itself, but that is not the case in How to Lose a Demon, the romance builds at a fun and sexy pace, making it an absolute delight to read. I have read many comical romance authors but never one that had me laughing from the first page to the last. The pure insanity of this book has me anxious to come back for the rest of the books in this series. If you're one that likes your light paranormal, heavy on the steam, and insane on the laughs then I highly recommend this book.

Saranna Dewylde does not disappoint in this book. In a tale of good vs evil involving a Russian mobster wanting demonhood, a witch wanting revenge, and a demon who wants sex as payment.

On the good side, we have Grace Eden who is like no other. Trained by her grandmother who is the all powerful Baba Yaga (who sleeps with Hades and has a penchant for shoe shopping in the Pyramid Collection Catalog, )she is a plus sized force to be reckoned with. Especially when paired with the beautiful, overly dramatic and highly coiffed demon Caspian who is a High Crown Prince in waiting. Throw in Jill a demon prostitute, Petru a huge but slow witted bodyguard and his neighbor/prostitute/love Katrina and our rag tag team is ready to fight evil.

On the side of evil we have Michael who is Grace's russian mobster demon wannabe. Michael's crazy ass mother Nadja who believes she should be the Baba Yaga and will use the powers for pure darkness. The Tea drinking and polite demon Ethelred who owns Michael's soul in ten days rounds off our main cast.

Grace summons Caspian to seek revenge on Michael. As payment Caspian wants sex, which he agrees to while talking directly to Grace's "sweater cows". This leads to some hotter than hot sex which will ruin all trips to the Avenue from now on! Sex turns to even more eventually giving Caspian a heart.

Throughout the book we see the fight of good vs evil and the levels of each we all hold within ourselves.

This is a fast paced, truly entertaining book. There are surprises and twists and a truly happy ending for those who deserved it. I especially love the prologue giving us a glimpse into our characters lives once the dust settles.

Saranna is a great writer.
