"Amusing romp with delightful supernatural creatures."

Kim Vaughn has come to the Castle of Dark Dreams at the request of the unknown owner. A demon hunter from a long line of demon hunters, she's eager to put aside that part of her life to work at the castle as an architect. Unfortunately, there's a lot more going on at this fantasy haven than meets the eye. Accompanied by her less-than- accurate demon detector, Fo, Kim barely sets foot inside the castle before Fo is sounding the alarm. It appears the castle is overrun by a variety of non-human entities. Willing to put aside her demon hunting past and focus on the job at hand, Kim adopts a live-and-let-live philosophy toward the various vampires, werewolves, chaos demons and sex-obsessed demons inhabiting the castle. This works out well since the guy she's attracted to is a centuries old demon named Brynn McNair.

Kim finds she must resume her demon destroying ways when she and Brynn discover that Galveston is overrun with a variety of incubus, succubus and other assorted demons intent on taking over the world. The arrival of Kim's sister and uncle at the castle sets everyone on edge as the battle between good and evil is about to commence.

Ms. Bangs' WICKED PLEASURE is an amusing supernatural romp full of an eclectically delightful collection of trouble makers, chaos creators and demon destroyers. Kim is fun as a demon hunter with a heart, Brynn hotly sympathetic as an unwillingly sex-obsessed demon and Fo is hilarious in her journey of self-realization. This is the second book in a trilogy. While it stands well on its own, it's obvious some of the characters and some back story were in WICKED NIGHTS. Readers might want to make sure they've read it first before embarking on the sensual treat of WICKED PLEASURE.
