He'll slay her demons, but it may cost her heart...
Four years ago, a strange creature attacked Tegan Ashton and no one believed her. Determined never to be a victim again, she’s devoted her life to martial arts and self-defense. When her assailant returns to finish what he started, she has to find the one man who might be able to help.
Gabriel Smith is a private investigator by day and demon slayer by night. After those closest to him were murdered, he vowed to defend people from a threat they don't realize exists. But his biggest threat might be the feelings Tegan brings out in him. He cares–too much. And since everyone he loves dies, he has to struggle to keep things professional.
Fighting the hordes of demons on their tail is a breeze compared to dealing with the secrets they refuse to share.
Oh boy, what a superb paranormal adventure this proved to be! I really shouldn’t have been surprised, though, as I’ve loved every book I’ve read by this highly talented author - and this is certainly no exception!

Ever read one of those books where when you reach the end all you can say was “HOLY CRAP! That was a good book!” Well this was one of those for me. Gabe was flawed beautifully.

I will read all kinds of paranormal books, but I just really don’t like books featuring demons all that much. Sometimes, but not often. I picked this book up because I enjoyed the author’s work in the past, and actually I did think the premise sounded good.

Review to come; totally enjoyed this PNR!
I love a female protagonist who can take care of herself and yet is still ultra-feminine, a little needy because of a past issue, but is willing to stand and fight, side by side with the man she grows to trust and love. This is what you... ...more

Beg Me to Slay by Lisa Kessler
It wasn't until I was 40 pages into this book that I realized I had always read the title wrong. It's not "stay" as in "stay here" but SLAY as in "slay the demons". Oh. Clever and catchy. And cute. Not a light-hearted read but not horror either. A nice paranormal rom... ...more
