    Almost a 5

    This is a very well written and fast-passed story set over a relaitively short time span. The writing and wonderful plot and characters ensure that the time crunch isn't an issue while reading. Only that time span and what I feel to be a rushed forgiving stop this from being a 5 for me. I'll deefinitely be reading more from this series and author.

    NOt your typical demons

    I think it was the trio of demon enforcers that charmed me. They were big, funny, and gentlemanly to a fault. And very good at their job: protecting counselor Megan Chase from an onslaught of demonic and human attacks. That¿s not what she thought would happen when she started a phone-in radio show with the tag line, ¿How can I slay your personal demons?¿<BR/><BR/>Stacia Kane¿s Personal Demons takes the reader and Megan on a wild, week-long ride. First there¿s the charming and suspicious-looking guy on her porch whose client has ¿an offer¿ for her. Then there¿s slightly slimy fellow psychologist, the rival, and the pushy reporter. Trouble is, they shouldn¿t be a problem, because Megan¿s psychic. But demons¿good and bad¿scramble Megan¿s life and abilities.<BR/><BR/>Demons define ¿good¿ differently than humans, though. Megan¿s cockney guard trio are loyal to a fault but love to beat potential threats to a pulp. Greyson, Megan¿s demon protector, goes against his grain to help Megan do good to humans. He also does good things to Megan in his bed. Explicitly. <BR/><BR/>Paranormals often have kick-butt heroines, and Personal Demons is no exception. Megan is different, though, in her inner conflicts and her inner strengths. Kane creates a polytheistic supernatural world whose denizens wield mental and physical powers according to their own moral codes. I slipped into this world as easily as stepping into a lagoon. I reveled in the warmth, explored the terrain, and touched the unknown depths. Personal Demons is a paranormal that has the power to send readers running to the bookstore for more. The size of my own ¿to be read¿ pile proves it.

    Why oh why

    Her heroine is a moron. Why are women so often depicted with what I call "Get a Spine Disease"? Read her Ghosts series. Its way better.

    Great Start to a New Series, Loved It.

    I enjoyed this book a lot. It has a lot of twists and turns. It starts out very light and takes a rather dark turn near the end. Megan is a delightful character and she has a radio show where she promises her listeners that she'll 'slay their personal demons,' and they believe her and so do the personal demons. Megan is physic and she soon finds out that everyone has a personal demon on their shoulder, to her surprise she is the only human without one. Megan is approached by and then protected by Greyson Dante, a Fire Demon. When he can't be with her, he leaves three demons to protect her, they are like the three stooges, Malleus, Maleficarum, and Spud, they are so loveable, one can't help but fall for them. Then there is Brian, the reporter, he is writing a story about Megan and he isn't sure if he likes her or dislikes her, he plays a major part in her story. Lots of action and world building in this book. A very exciting ending. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    Who are your personal Demons?????

    Stacia Kane's Personal Demons is a rough and tumble ride on the Demon express. Counselor Meg Chase is having some difficulty with the 'local demon color' they think she wants to kill them. What should she do? Why what any red blooded female would do! Meg excepts the help of hunky demon attorney Greyson Dante and his troupe of demon hit men. Hitmen Maleficarum,Malleus and Spud are the Three Stooges of the demon world. As the four demons set themselves in ready to protect Dr. Chase wackiness ensues. Just when you think that you are going down the humor road, the book takes a hard left and becomes a bit intense. This is a thoroughly wonderful and enjoyable ride through the mind of Stacia Kane. I would not turn down a second visit anytime soon. Pick this one up now!!!

    Devilishly Delightful Urban Fantasy

    Personal Demons is a supersexy urban fantasy, some might say paranormal romance, but like all good demon fiction, the sin of lust takes precedence over anything as wholesome as that other L word. Megan Chase, psychic therapist 'though the psychic part is a secret', is up to her ears in crazy clients, radio station politics and zombies! After a near fatal attack, she's let in on a little secret: those personal demons she claims to slay on her radio talk show? Um..a wee bit miffed. It seems she's been marked for death, which is really bad timing because she's being tailed by a reporter hot for a story and a demon hot for some tail. To make things right, Megan must do battle with the spawn of Satan 'both in and out of the bedroom' and the skeletons in her own closet. Kane serves up a malevolently entertaining entry into the urban fantasy genre, the action is fierce and the sex is scorching, her characters are skillfully drawn--Megan, in particular, is so engaging you'll be missing her from the second you turn that final page--and the story clips along with the urgency of a freeway car chase. Highly recommended!

    engaging paranormal thriller

    Dr. Megan Chase hosts the popular radio call in show Personal Demons. She counsels her listeners by pledging to help them to 'slay their personal demons'. Her loyal followers fully believe in her abilities to do exactly what she says so do others who are not exactly fans of Dr. Megan.------------ Megan is a unique human perhaps the only Homo Sapiens without a demon. That and her growing notoriety make her a threat to the demon-kind and an adversary from her past the Accuser wants her dead. While the demons compete for her allegiance or her death, Megan and her overly protective lover fire demon Greyson Dante become involved in the seemingly inane but potentially dangerous Fearbusters meetings while a reporter trying to make a name digs into Megan¿s involvement in a murder fifteen years ago.---------- This engaging paranormal thriller will have readers believing in psychic powers and personal demons while wondering when we take a shower do we have a peeping demon and would sex mean a ménage a quatre? Readers will enjoy this lighthearted entertaining urban fantasy as Dr. Megan radio counselor finds out the hard way that there are some creatures out there who literally interpret her motto as a direct threat to their well being.------- Harriet Klausner
