I received a copy of this book from the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in any way.
Creed is on a Demon mission and that mission takes him to the ranch where Nieve is working. This is a world that has prejudices against those that are different – they are different through no fault of their own. It reminds me of our own history where slaves were considered expendable. There’s also hate for what people don’t understand and that includes the lack of compassion.
Willow has revenge on her mind as well as something more sinister. Nieve may be a woman who doesn’t appear to have much on the outside but on the inside she is very strong. And seeing this world she lives in, she needs to be. There is a point where the light goes on for Nieve – too bad more people couldn’t be that enlightened.
There are some scenes where the descriptions are a little gross in the details. It’s not too bad but it is enough that you don’t want to be eating at the time. This is a book that comes with some lessons if you’re willing to listen and Paula makes it a great way to get those lessons across to the reader. She takes a paranormal story and makes it so much more. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it made me realize that I need to go back and read the first two books. I wasn’t lost by not having read them, and I don’t think you had to read them in order to enjoy this one, but just for the pleasure of reading the complete series is why I want to make sure to read The Demon’s Daughter and Black Widow Demon.

I honestly don’t think I know anyone who has that many hobbies, least of all me. I’m the most boring person I know.
But I’m going to give this a shot. Let me know if you can tell when I start lying:
- Reading (of course)
- Writing (still feels like fun))
- Movies (mostly epic fantasy and comic book hero)
- Running (amazing, considering how lazy I really am)
- Travel (who doesn’t?)
- Housework (it’s true—I like to clean)
- Research (also true—I love learning new things. I’d be a permanent student if not for my husband)
- Wall climbing (although I don’t go as much as I’d like now that the kids are grown)
- Drinking (although I probably talk about it more than I actually do it. At least one would hope, because I talk about it a lot)
- Stalking Madeline Hunter online (also true)
I’m actually a little surprised that I came up with ten things!
He stole her job, and now she’s stealing his heart.
Eve Doucette finally almost has it all. Shes free from her mistake of an ex-husband and just landed her dream job: project manager for a new City Hall and drafter of the final design. That is, until a handsome architect sweeps into town to commandeer her blueprints.
Famous architect Matt Brison is unsatisfied with his mundane life in Toronto. So when the mayor of Halifax asks him to spearhead his City Hall project, Matt jumps at the opportunity. There’s just one problem: the feisty and beautiful project lead, Eve, who isn’t exactly thrilled about her new “coworker” hijacking her design.
But when the sparks begin to fly, they both find themselves falling for the colleague they shouldn’t want. And before they know it, their already shaky foundation might come crumbling down…
