Feisty witch Maggie enjoys her work as a paranormal law enforcement officer—that is, until she’s assigned to protect a teenager with major attitude and a sleazy boyfriend. A group of satanic Mayans priests has decided Courtney has a drop of divine blood in her—making her just the virgin sacrifice they need to release their God and rule the world.

To prevent this catastrophe, Maggie must team up with half fire demon Declan, the proprietor of Damnation Alley, an underground club and busy demon portal. Declan will be damned if he’ll allow his demon race to be blamed for the malicious acts of some evil Mayans. So he decides to seduce the sexy witch in an effort to discover what the law enforcement agency knows about the Mayan’s plans, but then things get more than a little hot, and Declan finds himself seriously entangled with the sexiest woman he’s ever met.

My thoughts:
Where to start, we have a witch and a demon, some crazy Mayans, and doom on the horizon. Ok back to the beginning. The book is about Maggie who is a witch and works for the Hellion Guards. They keep the supernaturals in check and sees to that no humans know that elves, gnomes, trolls, warlocks, or anything like that exists. She is kick-ass, 700 years old, and can take care of herself. She has attitude and I liked her. Not to mention that she has one awesome side-kick, a tattoo named Ella that can talk and walk around (talking about a spider here.) Ella brought humour to the book.
Then there is Declan whom she meets while investigating a case at his club. He is a firedemon, hot (yes literally), but he is also nice, and I fell at once. Gotta love a demon that is in touch with his human side. These two want each other at once, but since demons and other beings do not mix it’s slow, and it builds up.
It’s a nice world, where you can find a bunch of different supernaturals, and humans do not know about them. And in this one something dark is coming, Mayans wants blood sacrifices to bring forth some evil God called the Destroyer. Oh I like a good evil god now and again.
The side characters are fun, mostly Ella, cos she rocks, but the elf Sybil is nice and has a sense of humour, and then there is the teenager Maggie has to protect, and she was one cool kid.
Here and there people are mentioned, I did not mind but I did realize that they are from this other series she has written. For me it worked even though I didn’t know them.
Conclusion:
I ended up liking this book, I think it was all cos of Declan, he was just so hot and sweet. And like the title says, demons are a girl’s best friend. The book has passion, ass-kicking, humour, and a good plot.

Rating:
I enjoyed it
Cover:
It would work if he wasn’t there, he totally ruins it.

    Ha! A good evil god? I like those too! Totally adds excitement! Okay. So do you mean she had a tattoo of a spider that walks and talks or that the spider is a tattoo?Huh? Now I'm confusing myself. LOLSounds like a fun book. I don't think I've ever read about a 700 year old heroine. It's always the guys that get to live forever. Must check this one out.

    I have read other reviews about this book before, and it is already on my wishlist. Sounds like a fun read. A kick ass heroine and lots of humor are essential for me. And I agree with you on the cover. Whan an ugly man, he should not be there.Have you read other books by this author?
