Serah SanGermano runs a successful catering company in a Midwestern town. After she inadvertently helped her friend unleash a legion of demons, she's been trying to hide her own newly discovered powers. Matthias Ambrose, a mysterious demon mercenary sent to protect her, has his own secret– one that will embroil them both in the scandal from hell.
The last thing he wanted to do was to be sent back to Earth to protect Serah. After all, she’s the reason he’s in trouble to start with…
This book has demons, angels, imps, succubus, and more. How about a talking cat that drinks scotch and smokes cigars? Yes, it has that, too! With all this magic and mayhem going on at once, it starts out fast and I zoomed through the pages to the end. The bad guys are really, really bad and they have magic to fight with.
Ms. Ayers writes a fantasy than tantalizes. Her story is vibrant, busy, and entertaining. While all these characters have various talents and skills, she gives them a touch of realism that makes you accept the premise of the story and has you rooting in the corner for Serah and Matthias, her protector.
Matthias has a history with Serah, but he’s erased her memories. When he finds himself falling in love with her and she demands to know his secrets, he restores her memories of that time. Bad move on his part, she wants nothing to do with the big bully. So they exchange barbs and barely tolerate each other’s presence throughout part of the story. The sarcastic comments are great fun. I like characters with quick tongues who can tease the other person.
I loved this story. It’s so good this book is going on my keepr shelf for re-reading later. I don’t keep a lot of books anymore, so this is a high recommendation from me.
Talk a walk on the wild side and try to beat the devil; what do you have to lose? Maybe more than you thought…
