"One of this summer's hottest paranormal reads!"

What do you get when you cross a psychic therapist, a "hot" fire demon, one determined reporter, three cockney demon bodyguards, zombies, witches, one messed up therapy group and a demon that even hell is scared of? One of this summer's hottest paranormal reads!

Stacia Kane gives us some of the usual characters in a fresh and believable way. Megan is not your typical paranormal heroine; she does not kick butt right away and has some insecurities due to her past. But she overcomes them and finds herself in the process. Megan is not just the target of the personal demons (thanks to her show) but an array of paranormal beings that go from scary (the zombies) to a whole new definition of scary (the Accuser).

Grey is a fire demon, he may act nice and look really hot, but he will make sure that things turn out the way he wants them to. In a way, he is an anti-hero. Yes, he helps out Megan, but he keeps true to his sneaky demon ways; I find that refreshing.

The three characters I liked the best were Malleus, Maleficarum, and Spud, Megan's demon body guards. The brothers have cockney accents, healthy appetites, energy to spare and they take their orders quite literally.

Persistent reporter Brian took his assignment a bit too seriously for the fluff it should have been. I also was not too sure about the way he acted sometimes with Megan; it was like he was a jealous boyfriend when he did not have that ground to stand on.

This book has a great pace, action galore, steamy scenes, paranormal beings coming out of the woodwork and likeable characters that will have you reading late into the night.

When therapist Megan Chase promises listeners to her new radio call-in show she'll slay their personal demons, they believe her. So do the personal demons.

Megan doesn't know she's the only human alive without a personal demon on her shoulder. This, coupled with her psychic abilities, makes her a valuable weapon for any demon mob-like "family" lucky enough to gain her allegiance. It also makes her a serious threat not just to the personal demons, but to a soul-sucking Legion of Hell known as The Accuser. The Accuser already has an old score to settle with Megan, and sees this as the perfect time to do it.

But Megan isn't without allies as she's plunged back into a world she forgot existed. A member of a competing demon family sees Megan as his ticket to power, and sets about both protecting and seducing her with devilish intensity.

Can Megan, her new demon lover, a witch with poor social skills, and three cockney guard demons named Malleus, Maleficarum, and Spud defeat not only The Accuser, the personal demons, and the ghosts of Megan's past, but the reporter who threatens to destroy Megan's career as well?
