Released: June 2013
Kerilyn was raised from childhood to be a demon hunter, and it's all she's ever known. Although her and her family have killed thousands of monsters, the casualties on her side have been high, and now Kerilyn is the only one left. Every Halloween, the demons and spirits are all released, and she knows they'll come for her. Locking herself into her house, surrounded by wards and spells and weapons, she waits for another Halloween to pass, wondering when the one demon she both dreads and hopes to see will show. The Lord of the Spirits, Arawn, has been visiting her every Halloween for years, trying to seduce her out of the protection of her home. She knows he'll kill her if he gets the chance, yet she can't help the yearning that his alluring words are true. But when her niece and only living relative is kidnapped by Arawn's brother, she has no choice but to leave her house and place her trust in Arawn, and hope that doing so isn't the death of both her and her niece.
This book is about trying to play the hand fate dealt you, and wondering what it would be like to be someone you're not. Kerilyn just wants a normal life, but demon hunting is all she knows. She met Arawn when she rebelled as a teen and tried to leave on Halloween. She knows that he'll kill her, but all he's ever done is come stand outside her house every Halloween since then, promising her things she'd only every dreamed about. And as she got older, the promises got more and more sensual. She can't help her attraction to the one person who's ever spoken pretty words to her, but she's afraid to risk her life over it. It's a great short story about two people who are supposed to be enemies finding a common ground, and learning that love can transcend everything if the two people want it enough. It was a great book.
