"Just because you can't see them doesn't mean they aren't there"

Officer Sinead O'Rourke sees dead people...and demons too. After surviving the violent attack that claimed the life of her partner, Sin's new "ability" is unsettling and she's afraid she might be losing her mind. Now that Sin is back on the job, her otherworldly sightings are occurring more frequently and the timing couldn't be worse. Teamed up with her former partner and lover, she is well aware of the rumors circulating about her mental breakdown. Determined to prove she can still do the job, Sin sets out to convince everyone that she's ready to patrol the streets again...even if it means lying about seeing Danny's ghost.

Jake Chapa would like nothing more than for Sin to quit the police force. The woman drives him to distraction and just thinking about the night she'd been shot was almost too much to bear. Jake senses she is hiding something and now that she's his partner again, he plans to keep a close watch over her. Working with Sin this time around is just as challenging as before, but the nights in her bed are hotter than ever. And Jake will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.

Delilah Devlin is her signature self with this novella. Hot love scenes and strong characters pull the reader into the story immediately. Paranormal elements are neatly woven into the story and well-timed comedic quips bring the characters to life. This novella seems to set the stage for other stories to follow as more is revealed about the body snatching demons on earth. Readers will be left begging for more and will no doubt want to read more about Sin and Jake's on and off-duty escapades.
