Official Blurb:

When seduction weaves a spell more powerful than magic... 

Desperate to save her demon-abducted sister, witch Merle MacKenna breaks the law of her Elders. As a last resort to track down the kidnapper, she unleashes another demon, Rhun, from the magical prison of the Shadows. Determined to bind him again after he helps her, Merle vows to keep him tightly controlled. Easier said than done when her own personal demon is hellbent on charming his way into her pants – and her heart. 

After twenty years in the Shadows, bound for a crime he didn’t commit, Rhun is past caring about anyone but himself. The plan: Seduce the sexy witch, steal her powers, break the magical leash to her, and then be on his merry way. But when a heinous betrayal in the ranks of the witches forces Merle and Rhun to work even closer together, Rhun’s plan backfires – and the witch he meant to play gets under his skin. With his unbidden feelings for Merle vying with his need for freedom, he struggles with a bitter realization: Being a selfish bastard is a lot harder when love is involved. 

Warning: Includes lots of witty banter and snarky humor, as well as a charmingly disrespectful demon hero who's hot enough to melt panties with a look.

There are so many reasons why I loved this book. First being, it was absolutely amazing. I enjoyed every second reading this. I had a hard time putting it down because I had to know what would happen next. I couldn’t wait to get to the end, but when I did, I was sad because it ended! Secondly, I really liked how the author put some humor into the book. There were times I busted out in laughter because of some of the things Rhun would say. Thirdly, Rhun. I freaking love him. He is what all women want. Hot, charming, witty, and of course, he’s an alpha male all the way. I really felt bad for him since he was sent to the shadows for something he didn’t do. My heart literally broke for him at times, but I knew he would always put a smile on my face later. Fourthly, Merle. I loved her character. She is a powerful witch and she wasn’t afraid to use that magic. Especially when it came to her sister. Merle was a strong character and at times I had no idea how she held it all together. Merle had went through some things herself and reading some of those things I had tears in my eyes. I felt her pain and I love when I am able to connect with a character like that. She was a breath of fresh air. Not only was she independent, she stood up for what she knew was right. I really loved her!

Lastly, even though there are tons more, the overall book was amazing. I worried being paranormal, and with all the things that were happening, I would get to much information at one time. This was not the case. The author wrote this book in a way were you don’t get information overload and in my opinion that shows how good she is at writing. Also, I loved the fact that her idea was unique in her own way and it was different than any other witch and demon novel I had read before. The author literally had me addicted and wanting more!

I will definitely keep my eye out for book two. I cannot wait to see what Nadine comes up with next!
