Deja Demon

Deja Demon is the latest in Julie Kenner's series featuring demon-hunter and suburban mom, Kate Connor. I found this entry - one that I don't feel would stand alone well - to be a much darker read than 2007's Demons Are Forever, which I reviewed earlier this summer. And, be warned, if you've not rea ...

Insatiable Desire

Of all the variations on fantasy romances, I’m least comfortable with those involving demons, so imagine my dismay when the romantic suspense I thought I was going to review turned out to be the first in Rita Herron’s new Demon Born series. I tried to keep an open mind, but Insatiable Desire fai ...

Demons are Forever

I've looked at Julie Kenner's Confessions of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom books for several years, but never turned the corner on buying one. I jumped at the chance to review the latest installment and am happy that I did. Demons are Forever is the third book in the series and it worked well for me as ...

Personal Demon

It’s tricky to review a book in a series you've followed as a reader since the beginning. I first read Kelley Armstrong’s Bitten in 2002, and it’s become one of my favorite novels. Sadly, Personal Demon, the 8th in Armstrong’s Women of the Otherworld series, has only cemented something that ...

Hunting the Demon

So, this one doesn’t suck. And considering the many, many, many fantasy and paranormal romances out there these days, that's almost a recommendation. I didn’t read the first book in this series, but the info-dump the author helpfully provides in the first few chapters made that a non-issue. T ...

My Immortal

As a devoted fan of Erin McCarthy, it was no question I would read My Immortal even though I’m not too happy with that whole vampire thing she’s trying to pull. Now she’s going with a new angle: a darker fantasy romance that counters her humorous contemporaries and vamp books. Damien du ...

The Demon You Know

While The Demon You Know had some plot problems, it moved along quickly and ended up as a mostly enjoyable read. I haven’t read all the books in this series, but the author does a decent job of explaining the characters and there isn’t much world building to catch up on. Abby Baker is an aver ...

California Demon

Kate Connor has the perfect life. Her kids, Allie and Timmy, are great. Her husband, attorney and would-be politician Stuart, is loving - if a little preoccupied. And, she has a fulfilling (albeit difficult) job. But, like any modern woman, Kate is having a little trouble balancing her home life and ...

Carpe Demon

Julie Kenner's Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom has a killer premise that's neatly summed up in the title. If the book itself isn't quite as killer, it's still pretty good, a light, fluffy read perfect for summer. Kate Connor used to work as a demon hunter for the Vatican, un ...

The Demon's Daughter

The Demon's Daughter suffered from a serious identity crisis. It could never figure out whether it wanted to be Victorian, alternate reality, romance, or erotica. In the end it was just plain bad. I had to read this in short increments to keep my sanity. Perhaps if the alternate reality setting been ...
