We’re dealing with demons, and this is a paranormal romance story, but I found the scales tipped more towards the romance than paranormal.
Tegan is attacked four years ago and trying to get back on her feet, working her way out of being a victim, and so far she’s been pretty good at it. She’s worked on her self defense skills and now even has her own place where she passes her knowledge on to her students. One night she sees her attacker burying the body of another woman and it all comes rushing back to her, her attack four years ago, her very unusual tormentor with glowing eyes and a tendency to take a bite. Enter, Gabe, a private investigator/paranormal detective who accepts to help Tegan get rid of her assailant once and for all.
The demon plot was interesting but I felt like it was not complete. We deal more about Gabe’s and Tegan’s internal dilemmas about moving on with their lives after the traumas they’ve been through, rather than the immediate and more pressing demon vanquishing duties. To be fair, they do deal with the demon problem, but it’s more like a secondary plot in this paranormal story. I like my emotional and sexy, I like the story of how the hero and the heroine fall in love, but when there’s a plot, and one that interests me, I don’t want all that to push it into the background.
