Publishers Weekly
Wisdom (Hex in High Heels) expands her paranormal romance universe with the launch of a new series featuring a witch who's part of a supernatural military task force. Hellion Guard Margit "Maggie" O'Malley, backed by a team of assorted supernatural creatures, must protect a troublesome teen girl from the forces that want to sacrifice her to a dark Mayan god. Half-human fire demon Declan owns Damnation Alley, a club catering to nonhumans and containing a portal to the demon world. The two are drawn together by dreams and visions, allowing them to express their mutual interest even as they distrust each other in the real world. Romance and sex are firmly grounded with issues of family relations and friendship, giving this supernatural romp broad appeal. (Apr.)

Maggie is an old witch, ok, not that she looks old, but still she has the wisdom of age. She works for the Hellion Guard, a secret police-like agency for paranormals. Her new job is to protect a teen, who seems to have a lot of enemies including some ancient Mayans who want to take over the world. She literally runs into Declan, a smoking hot partial demon that runs a nightclub when a bust goes bad. The two have definite sparks and Maggie's sharp tongue is a pleasure to read about. The two have massive chemistry even though neither will admit it and only join forces when the evil Mayans try to sacrifice the teen in order to bring about world domination. You need to read the book in order to find out if the two can save the teen and prevent world wide destruction. Linda Wisdom is one of my favorite paranormal authors and her Hex series is loads of fun. She carries over the snappy dialogue from her previous series and this one has just the right amount of romance that is never forced or predictable. I love how she has the pace perfected and matched with humor. There is never a dull moment and now I can't wait for the next one in the series.

A nice paranormal story. I liked the world the author created with witches and other beings. Loved the hero, although I think the heroine should have fought his advances a little less ;p

I have been a fan of the paranormal genre for as long as I can remember. DEMONS ARE A GIRL'S BEST FRIEND is one of my absolute favorites. I was instantly sucked into the plot and couldn't think about anything but reading this book. Linda has made her way into my all-time favorite authors list. If demons, witches and a fun-filled read is what you are in the mood for, this is the perfect book to curl up with.

Linda has done it again, with the funny creatures and wonderful plot, you won't be able to put this book down!

This was the first book that I have ready by author Linda Wisdom. While I think Ms. Wisdom has great potential, I don’t think this book quite hit the mark. The romance so too quick and far apart with not much romance to keep it exciting. The characters were quirky, but at times there were too many to care about. I wanted the book to focus more on the main characters instead of the surroundings and other people in the book. At times it felt that the plot was stalling as well. While it's a twist to read of a demon with a heart. I'm reading one sentence that explains how Declan can level a city and how he lights a cigar with a finger. The next he's sighing about wanting something more from his life. Who knew? Then there's that spell Maggie puts on Courtney...Cracked Me Up. While I enjoyed the humor, witty dialogue and supernatural elements of the book, the story as a whole was just mediocre. I understand that this is the first in a series, and certain characters and plots had to be set up for future books, but I like my main characters to interact more than what was presented in this book. Not a bad read, but not one of the great reads either.
