Peek Inside Betting on Julia

When good girl Julia Melville is attacked by a werewolf, everything changes. Now she spends the time fantasizing about a normal life--with her new neighbor, handsome accountant, Sebastian Crane. What she doesn't know is that Sebastian, a powerful warlock, has been possessed by a demon for two hundred years. A demon who loves to gamble. He’s made Bastian one final bet—get a good woman to say the words “I love you” and he’ll be free. Neither Julia or Bastian can find what they are searching for, but together they may find something far more valuable...redemption.

Small, blonde, bubbly, and with a penchant for all things pink, Julia Melville has always considered herself a nice girl – until she was attacked by a werewolf. Months later, and still in total denial, Julia spends the time between full moons fantasizing that her life is normal. And who could be better to help her with that than her new neighbor, handsome accountant, Sebastian Crane.

For two hundred years, Sebastian, a powerful warlock, has been possessed by a demon. Each day, his soul grows darker, and he knows that soon he will be beyond salvation. But the demon loves to gamble, and he’s made Bastian one final bet—get a good woman to say the words “I love you” and he’ll be free.

Julia wants a normal guy. Bastian needs a good woman. Maybe together they can find something far more valuable…redemption.

While not being my usual cup of tea, which I'm beginning to see has nothing do with the author (because Nina Croft definitely knows how to bring on the action, mayhem, violence and steam) but more to do with the publisher. Covet is more of a Paranormal Lite.For those readers who would like to try th ...more

Two people - Julia and Bastien. Neither one is 'normal'. But each wants the other to view them as such. This leads to a wonderfully convoluted relationship between a werewolf who despises what she is and a warlock that shares his body with a demon. I enjoyed the relationship between the two of them. ...more
