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.

Good writing. Reminds me of MaryJanice Davidson and Molly Harper.

Summary from Goodreads:"Feisty witch Maggie enjoys her work as a paranormal law enforcement officer¿that is, until she¿s assigned to protect a teenager with major attitude and a sleazy boyfriend. A group of satanic Mayans priests has decided Courtney has a drop of divine blood in her¿making her just the virgin sacrifice they need to release their God and rule the world. "My Thoughts:I've been in the mood for a good romance lately and this book fit my mood perfectly! It was a book that I couldn't put down and I thoroughly enjoyed. One of my favorite things about this book was the storyline itself. I loved the mix of demons, ancient Mayans, evil gods coming back to life, and a supernatural law enforcement team that didn't have to play by any rules. Maggie was a kick-ass character that wasn't afraid to be herself and get what she wanted. She was vulnerable enough that the romance that developed between her and Declan was both sweet and refreshing. I thought that both main characters were well developed and helped to make the novel that much better.I've read books by this author before but thought that this was going to be a separate series. Instead, it turned out to be loosely tied in with her other books (characters from previous books were mentioned briefly) but this novel had a darker feel to it. I thought that it was also more suspenseful than my previous reads by her, and I really liked the change that this book provided. I hope that she writes more books with Maggie and her supernatural team in the future as I just didn't get enough. This was a really good addition to the paranormal romance genre in my opinion, and I will be looking forward to reading whatever books that this author writes in the future. Recommended without hesitation!Disclosure: This book was sent to me for review by Danielle at Sourcebooks. My many thanks for the chance to read and enjoy this book!

My thoughts:Where to start, we have a witch and a demon, some crazy Mayans, and doom on the horizon. Ok back to the beginning. The book is about Maggie who is a witch and works for the Hellion Guards. They keep the supernaturals in check and sees to that no humans know that elves, gnomes, trolls, warlocks, or anything like that exists. She is kick-ass, 700 years old, and can take care of herself. She has attitude and I liked her. Not to mention that she has one awesome side-kick, a tattoo named Ella that can talk and walk around (talking about a spider here.) Ella brought humour to the book.Then there is Declan whom she meets while investigating a case at his club. He is a firedemon, hot (yes literally), but he is also nice, and I fell at once. Gotta love a demon that is in touch with his human side. These two want each other at once, but since demons and other beings do not mix it's slow, and it builds up.It's a nice world, where you can find a bunch of different supernaturals, and humans do not know about them. And in this one something dark is coming, Mayans wants blood sacrifices to bring forth some evil God called the Destroyer. Oh I like a good evil god now and again.The side characters are fun, mostly Ella, cos she rocks, but the elf Sybil is nice and has a sense of humour, and then there is the teenager Maggie has to protect, and she was one cool kid. Here and there people are mentioned, I did not mind but I did realize that they are from this other series she has written. For me it worked even though I didn't know them.Conclusion:I ended up liking this book, I think it was all cos of Declan, he was just so hot and sweet. And like the title says, demons are a girl's best friend. The book has passion, ass-kicking, humour, and a good plot.Rating:I enjoyed it

Demons Are a Girl's Best Friend is the latest paranormal book from Linda Wisdom. She has written Hex in High Heels and Wicked by Any Other Name to name a few. The story takes place in an alternate society where vampires, witches, demons and other creepy crawly creatures.Maggie, the lead female character is a witch who works for the Hellion Guard.Her job is to keep the demons in line. Declan, the lead male character, is a half demon who is the new owner of a club called Damnation Alley. In this club is a portal leading to the underworld and Declan is responsible to keep the creatures from leaving the underworld and creating havoc.Sparks fly when these two people meet and end up working on a case together. Enter Courtney, a teenager with lot's of attitude and her boyfriend who isn't who he appears to be. Maggie is ordered by the Hellion Guard to protect Courtney. See, Courtney has a bit of Mayan blood in her and she has been chosen to be the virgin sacrifice. What ensues is a story with lots of passion, danger and the beginnings of a steamy romance. This was my first book by Linda Wisdom that I have read and I enjoyed it a lot. This book should be read by anyone who loves a great paranormal romance.

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.
