"You must be ready to face all the desires of your heart...and know which ones are real."
Sarah heard the costume store owner's warning, but didnÆt heed it. Tonight of all nights was Hallowe'en - a time of magic and make believe. She has an invite to the largest party in Chicago - in a beautiful Renaissance dress reputed to bring her heart's desire.
Why should she be cautious? After all, where had it gotten her except alone on a Friday night? It certainly hadn't gotten her a date with her adorable neighbor, Tim. So when she meets a dark, magnetic man in a mask claiming to know her every desire, she surrenders to his seductions...and for the first time engages in a steamy one night stand with a stranger.
Little does Sarah know that her new lover wants much more than one night with her. Much more...
Her every pleasure will be indulged...but at what price?
Who knew a demon would come in a dress? Sounds like a strange question unless you read Demon of Desire.
Ms. Waits’ story of a woman unhappy in life until she wears a special dress for a Halloween party is unique. She creates characters you can identify with and situations you could see yourself in.
Although I realize this is a short story and there are only so many details you can give, I wanted more of an idea what situation Sarah lived in. The sex is hot and leaves your fingers singed, but at the same time, you want to know more. Why is this demon so wonderful? I found myself with more questions than answers and at one point I was irritated with Sarah. She came across as more occupied with sex than love.
I did find myself squirming a couple of times hoping Sarah would make the right decision. She’s stuck in a strange spot—she’s been burned in love in the past and she’s scared to love again. Who hasn’t been through a similar situation? And when you meet the hero, Tim... wow. He’s exactly what a girl needs and he’s handsome. You find yourself invested in her struggle—good guy who has a heart of gold or demon who sizzles the sheets?
If you want a story with sizzling sex, and one red-hot hero, then you need to read Demon of Desire. I give this story 3 cherries.
