Dime a Demon : Myra Reed’s life is going great. Being a cop is great. Guarding the library of arcane secrets is great. Even dealing with the monsters and gods vacationing in the little beach town of Ordinary, Oregon is great.
Then the demon, Bathin, strolls into town and steals Myra’s sister’s soul.
So much for great.
Luckily, Myra has a plan to evict the demon and save her sister’s soul. Step one: shut down the portals to hell popping up in town. Step two: get rid of the pink know-it-all unicorn. Step three: don’t die while teaching Death how to be a cop.
Oh, and there’s a step four. Absolutely, positively, no matter what, do not fall in love with the handsome, charming, jerk of a demon she’s trying to kick out of town.
Logically, it’s a good plan. But when it comes to Bathin, Myra’s very illogical heart has some plans of its own.
“But the heat of him behind me, the strength of his body, was tempting, soothing. I might not have invited him here, but my untrustworthy heart didn’t want him to leave.
He hummed as he placed a kiss in the curve of my shoulder and neck.
I moaned just a little.
“This is a dream, isn’t it?” I tried to stop my body from reacting to him. Tried to stick with logic and facts, which had never let me down.
“It could be,” he said.
“It must be.”
“Must?” His lips pressed gently up my neck, beneath my jaw.
“I don’t like you.” My shiver betrayed my words, and he chuckled.
He stopped, his mouth near my ear, his breath warm. I still hadn’t turned to look at him. Didn’t know if I’d be able to look away once I did.
My family gift meant I was always in the right place at the right time. It was handy for living in a town full of vacationing gods, and supernatural creatures, handy for being a police officer here. That gift had never let me down.”
