"A demon love story where being bad never felt so sinfully good, and one wrong move could be fatal"

For more than twenty years half demon-half Navajo, Fatal has lived among her grandfather's people as an outsider. Now outcast the demons have come a-calling, wanting to bring her back to the family who once abandoned her; but Fatal isn't going without a fight. Orobus is determined to tame the half demon beauty, especially when he discovers she is his long lost betrothed. Only there are forces at work who want to use Fatal as a pawn in their own bid for power in DEMONIC PERSUASION.

In DEMONIC PERSUASION all of the characters from the main characters to the villains were well thought out and believable. Each have a voice of their own and stay true to that voice. I especially liked Azazel and his unyielding badness. I loved that Fatal fought tooth and nail against the situation she found herself in and only a major disaster broke down the last of her barriers— something not even a hellhound puppy could do. I really loved the whole demons are the "good" guys thing but they really weren't all "bubble gum and ice cream".

The biggest weakness was the shifting back story. First Fatal doesn't have any contact with the demon side of her family, then her father was able to visit her, then she had a demon mentor. Any of which would have been fine, but it jerks the reader's attention especially when her mentor shows up for the first time. As an integral part of not only Fatal's demonic life but the story, she should have been introduced long before the middle of the story.

For anyone looking for a good bad boy (or girl) story DEMONIC PERSUASION is the perfect one for your library. The relationships are believable (including the one between him and her) and build gradually as the story itself builds. The characters are strong and gloriously unrepentant. I would love for this series to continue and read about Fatal's brother's story as well as her parent's, and I look forward to whatever else this author has in mind for this world and all of its other occupants.

Molten Silver title

Born of a Navajo healer and a high-level prince of Hell, The Dine Gods demanded Fatal be turned over to her mother's tribe to learn their healing arts and kept away from demon hands. But with her tutelage came cruel segregation and disrespect because of her father's heritage. Not knowing why her life has suddenly come under demon attack, Fatal sets out, armed with her knowledge and her fighting skills, to take out any evil that gets in her way.

As prince of a lower level of Hell, Orobus signed a contract in blood that he be betrothed to Fatal, the high prince of Hell’s half-breed daughter. Oracle by birth, he isn’t privy to complete visions with regard to himself. Having forgotten the fateful night he signed the agreement, he’s thrust into the fight of his life—the fight to claim his woman! Come Hell or high water, he will take care of what is rightfully his, even if it means making her face both sides of her heritage and teaching her there is no shame.
