Can a fire demon bound to a ruby necklace find a way to love?
Running errands before Halloween, Constance Morelli passes a window display and is drawn to a dazzling ruby necklace. Not quite believing the story behind the piece, but intrigued by the possibilities, Constance takes the jewel home, only to find herself in possession of a naked demon-hunk, bound as a sex slave.
After four thousand years of dealing with various mistresses in one sexual way or another, Aramir knows what to expect when he appears in the moonlight. Only this mistress is different. He's fed, clothed, and treated like a real man. Not a slave. What is a bound demon to do with such a lady?
Content Warning: graphic m/f sexual content

Demon Heart may seem like one of those genie-out-of-the-bottle story, but I can assure you it's not. Nicole Dennis came up with a lovely twist in the end, making this story unique and in a category of its own.
Aramir is a demon. A fire demon prince, he was trapped in the jewel when he offended a powerful sorceress, destined to be nothing more than the sex slave of the woman who holds the jewel. Fortunately for him, after centuries, Constance came along, Constance, who wasn't like his previous mistresses, but who was kind and good-hearted and believed in freedom for him. Unfortunately, the scroll, which could've contained the release spell, was gone, lost in the void of time, and the evil sorceress who had trapped Aramir in the jewel was still alive and waiting for her revenge...
Constance is a likeable heroine, especially with her crusading attitude and the way she worked for Aramir's freedom. Paranormals abound in her little town, with werewolves, witches and demons, hence, the way she easily accepted Aramir's presence in her life was realistic. Aramir, on the other hand, was the requisite gorgeous hero with virile musculinity, and he was naturally agog at having a mistress like Constance, who was so different from the others.
The story moved at a fast pace, but I believe it could've benefitted from being longer, especially the relationship development between the main characters. The author hinted at some issues that Constance has with Aramir, but it was only a passing statement and sadly, it wasn't explored to the depth that I wish it could've been. I felt that the final showdown with the sorceress could've used more drama, but as I had mentioned before, I love that lovely little twist toward the end. All in, a fun tale when you're looking for a quick fix.
