She's got a demon problem. He's up to his neck in vampires. They're the only thing standing between a small town and an undead invasion.
After years of wrestling an inner fire demon who's sensitive to heat, the last place Rae Shelton wants to go is back to her sweltering Texas hometown. But when her grandmother dies, she has no choice but to return to settle her affairs. On the verge of losing control of the beast within, she vows to get the hell out of Dodge as soon as the ink dries on the paperwork. And not even the sexy supernatural agent who wants her help to rid the town of vampires can convince her to stay. After all, she hasn't killed a vampire since she was five years old…
Agent Jordan Buchanan knows the only way to save the city from being overrun by a bloodthirsty infestation is to enlist the sassy, stubborn Rae. With each passing hour, he can sense the demon inside her stirring… along with his own burning desire to be with her. But if he can't convince her to stay and train the beast within, the city will face a fate worse than death.
If you like fiery chemistry, feisty heroines, and action-packed supernatural showdowns, then you'll love this fiendishly delightful paranormal romance series.

Alright. So I read Immortal Ties a year ago and this one has been sitting in my to read pile pretty much since then (I've been busy but I've also plowed through a good number of books) and now there are two more in the wings now. That being said, I went back and skimmed Immortal Ties before reading this one, just in case. As a heads up: not necessary. These first two at least, are wholly standalone with only a quick moment with an old character and another name drop. This book had a 'feel' similar to Immortal Ties, so I know why they're linked. The story is written from the heroine's perspective and she's definitely a little snarky. Who doesn't love snarky? Anyhow, the book is fairly fast paced, but not so fast you don't get a sense of the main character's personality and also a little of the supporting cast. There is action, romance (with steam), and a little bit of family drama all rolled into a neat little package. Rae is our slightly emotionally stunted rebel heroine who comes home to bury her grandmother and ends up finding herself in the end (thanks to said grandma who is a badass, even from the grave). Jordan is our heroine's love interest and he is the epitome of the dark (though not brooding!) federal agent. He actually amused me quite a bit and I wish we could have had some moments from his perspective. All in all, this was a quick and fun read with just enough heart to make it real and not just a forgettable romp. I'm looking forward to the next book as I hear it is Nate's.
