A warrior, a demon, and the girl next door… Looking For Trouble

Addy Corwin is a florist with an attitude. A bad attitude, or so her mama says, ‘cause she’s not looking for a man. Mama’s wrong. Addy has looked. There’s just not much to choose from in Hannah, her small Alabama hometown. Until Brand Dalvahni shows up, a supernaturally sexy, breathtakingly well-built hunk of a warrior from—well, not from around here, that’s for sure. Mama thinks he might be European or maybe even a Yankee. Brand says he’s from another dimension.

Addy couldn’t care less where he’s from. He’s gorgeous. Serious muscles. Disturbing green eyes. Brand really gets her going. Too bad he’s a whack job. Says he’s come to rescue her from a demon. Puh-lease. But right after Brand shows up, strange things start to happen. Dogs talk and reanimated corpses stalk the quite streets of Hannah. Her mortal enemy Meredith, otherwise known as the Death Starr, breaks out in a severe and inexplicable case of butt boils. Addy might not know what’s going on, but she definitely wants a certain sexy demon hunter by her side when it all goes down…

She was just trying to retrieve her run away dog; she didn’t intend to run into a demon and a ten thousand year old Dalvahni warrior!

This author writes a paranormal romance novel that is outstanding. She creates Addy, a southern girl that knows all the rules for proper behavior and has a mother that thinks she should get married. Ms. George’s style reads a bit like Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum. Addy is an independent lady who says outrageous things and made me laugh out loud while reading it. There are more synonyms for penis in this book than I have ever seen elsewhere. And when the wife and the mistress have a fight at the funeral of a horny old man, the action is just getting started.

There are two warriors, a lot more demons, and characters with unusual abilities to know when company is coming or seeing demons and fairies. Ms. George makes her warriors godlike in both abilities and looks, and Addy and her friend Evie find themselves loving them and wanting them. Oh, there’s a talking dog, too, as well as a cat fairy.

The action is hot and heavy, both in the bedroom and while fighting demons. The conversations are unforgettable. Addy’s warrior, Brand, always answers questions literally, which is not a good thing when he’s visiting with her mother…

This book grabbed me in the first few pages, and I didn’t want to set it down. There is so much action, so many silly doings, great warrior action and rampant sex. It’s all great fun. I mean, after all, how many times does the lead female character get to give her sworn mortal enemy pimples on her butt?

If you enjoy silly madcap humor and a good love story, this book is for you. I just wish one of these warriors would show up and fall in love with me.

Also, I smell another story coming. Evie’s love interest has gone back to his world and his work and won’t be a weakened patsy like Brand, but he seems to be feeling lonely. I’d love to go visit these characters one more time. Can’t wait.
