Guess who’s coming to dinner—fangs and all?

Professor Nefertari Smith, daughter of the Fifth Satan, may have just met her match. And, evidently, he’s a stalker.

Though she takes great pains to hide her immortal “condition”, it didn’t stop intensely handsome DNA researcher Jasper Grayson from finding his way to her door. If Mr. Tall-dark-and-handsome learns of her demon heritage, he may expose her family to notoriety they can’t afford.

Jasper isn’t looking for a test subject. He’s looking for a life partner who can last more than a few paltry decades—an essential quality for a vampire’s mate. Tari’s genetic profile excites him in more ways than one. He just needs another sample of her DNA to be sure she is his match. And he knows a highly pleasurable way to get it.

One kiss, and suddenly the haze of lust makes it hard to remember the warning about vampires and other immortals. But soon the consequences of their union are all too clear. Tari’s immortality is draining away—along with her life.

The only way to save her is to face her father with the truth…and pray the Fifth Satan is in a good mood.

What happens when an angel crosses with a vampire? According to a certain ancient Egyptian leader, the sentence is death.

Intrigued? Then you need to read The Egyptian Demon’s Daughter.

Tari doesn’t want to fall in love, but when she sees Jasper, she can’t help herself. I liked the idea of two immortal beings getting together. I thought the action happened a tad fast, but I enjoyed the way the situation resolved itself.

Ms. Cullen’s story captivated me from the first page. I wanted to see Tari and Jasper make a love connection. The twists and turns added to the depth of the tale. I felt like I was really at the Christmas party with them. At the same time, there are some slow spots that took me out of the story for just a bit, but it wasn’t enough to ruin the story.

My favorite character was his sister, Eve. Her forthright attitude impressed me. She wanted the best for her brother, even when he tried to screw up by letting his libido run his life. Tari is an interesting heroine because when she needs to give in, she’s willing to follow her heart. Jasper is a sexy hero. He’s in love with Tari and willing to give her forever, but I wanted him to act a tad more mature. Yes, this is an erotic story, but he seemed driven by his manhood—to her destruction.

Still, I enjoyed the story and if you want a sexy read that’s a little bit different, then you need to read The Egyptian Demon’s Daughter. I give it 3.5 cherries.
