Erotic Romance, Paranormal Romance
A warrior, a demon, and the girl next door. . .
Looking For Trouble
Addy Corwin is a florist with an attitude. A bad attitude, or so her mama says, 'cause she's not looking for a man. Mama's wrong. Addy has looked. There's just not much to choose from in Hannah, her small Alabama hometown. Until Brand Dalvahni shows up, a supernaturally sexy, breathtakingly well-built hunk of a warrior from--well, not from around here, that's for sure. Mama thinks he might be European or maybe even a Yankee. Brand says he's from another dimension.
Addy couldn't care less where he's from. He's gorgeous. Serious muscles. Disturbing green eyes. Brand really gets her going. Too bad he's a whack job. Says he's come to rescue her from a demon. Puh-lease. But right after Brand shows up, strange things start to happen. Dogs talk and reanimated corpses stalk the quite streets of Hannah. Her mortal enemy Meredith, otherwise known as the Death Starr, breaks out in a severe and inexplicable case of butt boils. Addy might not know what's going on, but she definitely wants a certain sexy demon hunter by her side when it all goes down. . .

WARNING: Do not read this book in places where uncontrollable laughter will cause a scene. Do not read with a full bladder or while eating or drinking, especially if reading on an electronic device. Reports of aching sides and throbbing funny bones have been received. Plan accordingly.
I think this book was just meant for me. I am a southern woman through and through like my new gal pal, Addy. I totally get the small town mentality and the fear of all things momma. DEMON HUNTING IN DIXIE is over the top fun. You just have to be in the mood for outlandish, what-in-the-world hilarity. If you are feeling stoic or pensive, shelve it and wait for later. You really have to be in the mood for a wild bawdy ride.
Addy is the perfect southern belle. She owns her own flower shop, attends church and fears her mother (as all good southern girls do). When her dog, Dooley, runs into a copse of trees, she knows something is off but in classic fictional fashion, she follows any way. Right into the arms of a demon. Who basically blasts her with some kind of power intending to kill her.
Fortunately for her, a demon slayer stands at the ready, captivated by her beauty. The demon flees and the hunter saves her life. Now marked by the demon, Addy must rely on Brand's protection until the demon is found and returned to his realm.
Not a hard thing to do when the immortal demon hunter is over six and a half feet of pure Adonis muscle.
The sexual heat is there from the beginning. Lexi George gets two big thumbs up for being willing to take it out of the bedroom and set those pages on fire. I just love it when mass market writers will get down and dirty with me! No holding back here. And let's face it. If Adonis showed up on your doorstep when you were in your twenties and single, would you have been having puritan thoughts? Not me. I'd be drooling with Addy. Looking for a nice bucket of ice.
But really, the town stole the show in this book. Remember grandma in the Stephanie Plum books? Okay. Now envision a whole town of grandmas! Or Nix in Kresley Cole's Immortal's After Dark series? This is a whole town full of Nixes!
I don't want to tell you about all of them—that would spoil the surprise. But I will share that one of the town's citizens is walking around with her dead husband's male member in her purse to ensure he doesn't continue to cheat on her in the afterlife. Another one is using coat hangers like divining rods. And there are more secrets than pumpkins at Halloween. And that is just the tip of that iceberg.
Paranormal romance fans, this is one to take a look at. If you like Katie MacAlister, this could be right up your alley. You really should check it out. Your funny bone will ache for days. Enjoy!
