Deep South legends. Deep fried curses. Deep dish revenge . . .
This Debutante Is Having A Ball!
Way down south in the land of cotton, one belle’s plans are soon forgotten–when Sassy Peterson drives her Maserati off the road to avoid a deer and lands smack-dab in the proverbial creek without a paddle. The Alabama heiress should have known something weird was going on when she saw the deer’s ginormous fangs. Hello, Predator Bambi!
But nothing can prepare her for the leather-clad, muscle-bound, golden-eyed sex god who rescues her. Who wears leather in May? That’s just the first of many questions Sassy has when her savior reveals he’s a demon hunter named Grim. Also: Why would a troop of fairies want to give her magical powers and rainbow hair? Why would a style-challenged beast called the Howling Hag want to hunt her down?
Most importantly, what’s a nice debutante like Sassy doing in a place like this anyway? Besides feeling Grim . . .
“Sugar,” Sassy murmured. She laid her head on Grim’s shoulder. “Fairies.”
With a drowsy sigh, she relaxed against him and went to sleep.
Grim stilled. A surge of lust hit him, hard and fierce. Sassy smelled delightful, a dizzying combination of summer roses and female. Curling tendrils of her hair lifted to caress his jaw, like flowers reaching for the sun.
I am her sword and shield. The vow rose unbidden in his mind. Here and now I vow to protect her, from anyone or anything that threatens her.
An admirable sentiment, I am sure, the Provider said, but hardly necessary. She leaves tomorrow, and you return to the hunt. That is good, is it not?
Yes, of course.
Then why the hollow ache in his chest?
This is the fourth book in the Demon Hunting series and ends in an HEA. We first meet Sassy as she drives a Maserati into a river. My first impression of Sassy was rich, bimbo. However, my opinion of her changes during the course of the story. She is rich and likes nice things. Her life has been sheltered, but not without heartache. She is a very caring person. For some reason her caring attitude creates a false persona of a bimbo. Sassy is surprisingly accepting when she learns that different paranormal creatures really exist. She seems to be able to adapt to her surroundings well.
>Grim is a demon hunter. He is alone except for an informational voice in his head, used to help him adapt to unfamiliar situations. Grim is originally cold and emotionless. The only emotion he admits to is guilt for the loss of his brother. The confusion Grim feels when he is attracted to Sassy is so funny. Sassy is able to connect with the informational voice and names the voice Dell. Dell tries to describe love to Grim with funny results. Grim is very protective of Sassy, which is so romantic. Sassy, of course, is always in danger. A witch is after her after she saves a demonoid, Evan and accidentally ingests fairy juice.
>Ghosts of her ancestors abound, including one brash and cruel ex-sister-in-law. The character of Evan is my favorite. He is so inappropriate and purposely makes himself misunderstood to hide a sad past. He cares about Sassy, which causes a rift between himself and Grim.
>This story is a perfect mixture of romance and action. The various creatures keep everything interesting and funny. Seeing Sassy turn into a being who wants to eat cake had me rolling!
>I am a reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock. This book is appropriate for an adult audience. I am giving the story 5 stars. This was a fun and easy read.
About the Author:
Lexi George writes snarky, Southern-fried paranormal romance for Kensington. Her debut novel, Demon Hunting in Dixie, was released in 2011, and a novella and two more demon hunter books followed. Demon Hunting in a Dive Bar, the third book in the series, was nominated for a RITA in 2014. The fourth book, Demon Hunting with a Dixie Deb, is due to be released May 24, 2016. Lexi enjoys reading and writing romance, but her first love is fantasy. A Meddle of Wizards is the story of Raine Stewart, a sheltered, sickly young woman who comes into her own when she’s transported to a magical world, discovers her burgeoning powers as an adept, and faces the evil wizard who killed her parents. Lexi’s day job as an appellate attorney requires reading transcripts filled with murder, mayhem, and worse. Perhaps this is why she enjoys stories filled with humor, action, adventure, and magical creatures. She has a violent aversion to sad movies, having been scarred by Old Yeller at the age of nine. She drinks tea, not coffee, and has never seen The Exorcist, because she is a world-class chicken. She is the third of four children, with all the attendant neuroses.
