Maura knows Dixon, the demon killer -- err, hunter -- is bad news the moment he walks into her shop looking for a flea remedy for his shapeshifting partner. Maura's sure men of action like Dix don't go for good girls like her.
Dix knows Maura is the one for him the moment he sets eyes on her. Now he's out to convince Maura he might just be the perfect mate for her.
But a demon hunter’s the last thing Maura needs, especially one as hot as Dix. Right?
This short story is a whirlwind.
It jumps right into the story with no introduction, and at first I was slightly confused, but once I got into the groove it was smooth sailing.
The characters are likable, witty and draw you in. Maura is sassy, spunky and sexy. Dixon is bold, brash and sinfully delicious. They practically burn up the pages once they get together. I even loved Bingo, Dixon's partner. I really wanted to know more about him and his lover. The only down side to this book is that it leaves you wanting more. It feels like the story is over before it really begins. I'd love to see more with these characters.
At only twenty pages long, Ms. Talbot skillfully manages to pack this book full of steamy sex, witty repartee, and interesting characters.
