Overview

Can she save the world and clean toilets, too?

Worst. Birthday. Ever. Cassidy Burke’s dog ate her breakfast, then her ancient washing machine finally died. Oh, and Logan Miller is back. First love, baby daddy to her genius daughter (won’t he be surprised?), still so handsome he makes her hoo-hah tingle. Which is exciting but confusing because she’s also getting serious flirting vibes from her latest client, Devlin Cole – a tall, dark, walking, talking orgasm.

So forgive her if she’s not exactly thrilled when a strange old lady barges into her house and insists that Cass’s destiny is to hunt demons. A., she doesn’t want to hunt demons, she wants to clean houses (and she doesn’t really want to do that). And B., there’s no such thing as demons. Except… they seem pretty real when they’re coming after her.

As if running a business and being a single mom wasn’t enough, now she has to train to become a kick-ass Demon Duster, decide which hunk to do more than flirt with, and – oh, yeah – dodge the demons determined to kill her before she taps into her full power. All in a day’s work…

Meet the Author

USA Today best selling author Maureen Child is the author of more than ninety romance novels and novellas. Maureen is a five time nominee for the prestigious Rita award from Romance Writers of America.

SOUL COLLECTOR, originally published as A POCKETFUL OF PARADISE, was made into a CBS-TV movie starring Melissa Gilbert, Bruce Greenwood and Ossie Davis.

Maureen was not only on the Texas set to watch her characters come to life in front of the cameras, she was also tossed into the last scene by her husband and the producer, who both thought this would be a fun way to humiliate an author!

When her kids were small, Maureen started writing as not only a way to stay sane, but in the hopes of finding a job she could do and stay at home with them. Sanity is still an issue, but she did manage to write her way into a career she wouldn’t trade for anything.

Over the years, she’s written under lots of different names and she prefers the term ‘pseudonym’ to ‘alias’. As Ann Carberry, she wrote western historical romances. As Kathleen Kane, she wrote not only Americana romances, but western paranormal romances as well. Many of her Ann Carberry and Kathleen Kane historical romances have seen new life as ebooks. As Sarah Hart, she wrote one really spectacular western paranormal that is still one of her favorites. And once, Ann Carberry even wrote a Victorian historical which she absolutely loved doing. Under her own name, Maureen writes short contemporary novels for Silhouette Desire—books she loves to write because of their fast pace and condensed storytelling.

    Child has a dry, dark, sense of humor in these books. Cassidy never takes herself too seriously. She tends to verbalize what the reader is thinking as she adjusts to her new reality of being a demon hunter. As opposed to taking the often serious route of Buffy, Child is more in the “you’ve got to be kidding” camp. It is this humor that makes the book so much fun. I was looking for a light, pick-me-up read, and definitely found it.

    Sadly, there are only two books in this series. Child had only begun to populate this world. There is clearly more to learn about Cassidy and the demons that plague (or not) southern California. Now that e-books are putting these books into readers’ hands, I can only hope that Child resurrects this series and moves forward with it. I will be along for the ride.

    humorous romantic fantasy

    On her thirty-second birthday in La Sombra, California, life turns upside down for Cassidy Burke as she feels she has entered hell without a hand basket. It starts with the return of Logan Miller, who left her pregnant when she was sixteen he wants parental rights to their teenage daughter Thea and would not mind conjugal rights with Cassidy too. ---- Soon after Logan¿s run home, Cassidy meets a strange elderly woman who informs her she that has demon dusting as part of her DNA make-up. Initially thinking she met a nut or a prank, she reconsiders when she suddenly becomes super strong. Soon Cassidy demon duster begins spraying people with a specialized cleaning solution that turns selected people smoking. At the same time businessman Devlin Cole makes it clear he wants her. However, a fiend kidnaps Thea so while Cassidy comes to the rescue she wonders what will happen on her thirty-third birthday as she cannot cope with this one. ---- MORE THAN FIENDS is a humorous romantic fantasy starring a reluctant superhero whose apprenticeship raising a teen maker her question how hard can it be to become the greatest American superheroine dusting demons. Told by Cassidy in a wise cracking chick lit style, the story line is fast-paced satirizing the recent Buffy imitation novels that have come out of late. Sub-genre readers will enjoy Cassidy¿s thirty-second month long birthday bashing as she learns first hand that A FIEND IN NEED is a pest. ---- Harriet Klausner

    Well if you’re interested in a funny and sexy read; this is the book for you.  The main character, Cassidy Burke (who never takes herself too seriously), invites you into her crazy world of cleaning houses, a love (make that lust) triangle, raising her 16 year old daughter, and killing demons, the bad ones not the good ones (who knew there were good demons).  I really enjoyed this fast paced quirky story and look forward to the second book in the series.

    Jennifer Wardrip - Personal Read

    I love Maureen Child and her contemporary romances, especially THE MARCONI SISTERS trilogy and the CANDELLANO FAMILY trilogy.<BR/><BR/>Unfortunately, I didn't like this book a bit.<BR/><BR/>I don't know if it was the first-person narrative, the paranormal elements that were more irritating than funny, or the fact that Ms. Child introduced TWO fairly likable heroes for the heroine to decide over, but MORE THAN FRIENDS just wasn't for me.<BR/><BR/>Hopefully, other readers will enjoy it a whole lot more than I did!
