Overview

A Bad Day For A Demon

Rafe Deleon is a senior demon and he resents like hell his assignment to Earth to retrieve the Chest of the Damned before it falls into the wrong hands. But then he meets beautiful, intriguing succubus Lucy Gregory, and she's just unleashed a whole load of trouble...

Really Sucks For A Succubus

Lucy's chic suburban beauty salon has suddenly become the Underworld's center of mass chaos and destruction. The only good thing in a day going rapidly down the tubes is the arrival of a gorgeous demon who's adamant that he can help her.

But Lucy has quite a few deeply unpleasant-not to mention deadly and hateful-surprises ahead of her, and surely there's never been a worse time to try out a new boyfriend.

What evil lurks in the hearts of hairdressers around the world? Lucia Gregory knows. but only because she's just opened a chest full of demons and discovered that she's a succubus. Now she's pressed to rein in all that she's loosed upon the world, not to mention keeping her salon in one piece while doing it. Lucia Gregory is the kind of heroine you like from the moment you meet her. She's passionate about what she does, she's good to her employees, and she seemingly has the patience of a saint. Lucy, as her friends know her, also is very adaptable and goes with the flow, which is handy when you suddenly discover you're a sex demon. What I like best about her, however, is how she can be completely in awe of her new-found powers one moment and completely at ease with them the next. I think this has a lot to do with her adaptable nature, but it also makes her so much more enjoyable to watch. Rafael Deleon is pretty much what you'd expect out of a demon. He's stern, determined, and pretty inflexible on his best days. However, he has a softer side that he keeps well hidden from everyone. Tortured by his past failings, he hides behind his duty to keep him aloof and unattainable. Little did he expect Lucy to find a way to break down those barriers. I love the fact that she is not just able to do that, but that she is willing to keep trying. I also enjoyed the way the author softened him up little by little, making it seem like an honest turn around on Rafe's part. You can really see their attraction growing and becoming something more. Demons Prefer Blondes was a surprise in many ways. The author does a fabulous job of giving you not only a unique setting, but a hero and heroine that you won't soon forget. Not to mention that she manages to make demons both sexy and scary at the same time. Jam packed full of laughs, characters you can't get enough of, and a steamy-hot romance, Demons Prefer Blondes is a sure hit! Originally posted at The Long and Short of It Romance Reviews

Lucy owns a beauty salon. Unbeknownst to her, she is half demon - a succubus. Lucy's best friend, Serah, buys a mysterious chest from an antique shop. Serah is excited about the chest and wants Lucy to help her open it. Lucy feels a strange spark whenever she touches the chest and when her hand touches the top of the chest, she unleashes beings that she never knew or believed existed.Demons Prefer Blondes got off to a slow start for me. There wasn't much action until the end which caused parts of the book to drag. Lucy and Serah were a little too accepting of the fact that there were demons in the world. There was no "Oh My Gosh I don't believe this!" moment. The first words that came out of Serah's mouth when Lucy opened the box was "you're a demon!". Rafe and Lucy were all over each other from the beginning but I didn't feel any spark between him. I expected a more smexy time since Lucy is a succubus.Demons Prefer Blondes had some humorous moments and dialog. I loved Serah. She was the highlight of the book for me. I couldn't connect with Lucy and her relationship with Rafe. I like that this PNR is on the lighter side. I look forward to reading book two, which features Serah. If you like humorous, light PNR, then this is the book for you.

When the book starts we do not know that Lucy is a succubus. Nope she owns a beauty salon. She is single, she has good friends and one of them has just brought a strange box to her. Let the fun begin. This is where the demons step in and they are not your usual kind of demons. There are the wicked evil ones and then there are those blessed by angels and they actually fight for good. That was different.Lucy was fun and she could hold her own, quite the tongue on her. Her two employees are fun, cheeky devils. Her best friend is interesting (and getting the next book), the chimp that shows up was fun (yes I said chimp, it was an imp as a chimp). And I am not forgetting the hero, Rafe, a demon sent to get the box back. He is one of the good guys and he is slowly falling for her. The guy has some issues, mostly since he wants to save her sister and since he does not want to get involved with anyone. There you have it, a great cast of characters.The story is about the chest since the bad guys want it, but it is also about Lucy finding out what she truly is (while having a hot fling with a handsome demon).But the thing I liked best (well not counting the fun characters) was the humour in the book. Even if it looked really bad Lucy still had funny remarks. Perhaps a survival instinct but it was fun.Conclusion:This was a light paranormal with humour sprinkled on top. It was a quick read.

The story is really funny, so it has that going for it. Sadly its disjointed and confusing. Many things are not explained well, or at all. Sometimes the author seems to rush to put so much action on the page that you cant keep up with the story. It was really frustrating.

Dominic Duvane of the Fore Demon Council informs senior demon Rafael Deleon that Hell's northern region Prince Belial's Infernati warriors attacked the guards protecting the chest. Belial captured Rafe's sister Coby, but she bravely sent the chest to earth to buy time in order to prevent the enemy from obtaining it. Dominic orders Rafe to retrieve the chest while he rescues Coby from their adversary's dungeon. Cosmetologist Lucia Gregory has the chest; with her friend Serah Bear she attempts to open it; unaware that she would be freeing some nasty demons of the damned. Rafe arrives and realizes that Lucy is a succubus and that he wants her. Both are stunners to him as he never expected to meet a succubus or desire her. As a war begins, Rafe and Lucy fall in love. Each understands they must return the demons to their hell so he brings in his allies and she brings in her circle. The opening Demons Unleashed romantic fantasy is a terrific often humorous thriller. The characterizations are superb and the Ayers universe deftly created inside an exhilarating story line. Sub-genre readers will appreciate the amusing romance between the demon and the succubus who also have a world to save. Harriet Klausner
