[Review] - Where Demons Fear To Tread
Author: Stephanie Chong
Series: The Company of Angels
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: August 23, 2011
I received this book for review from Planned TV Arts.
Summary: Fledgling guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil’s Paradise nightclub on a mission – to retrieve the wayward Hollywood “It Boy” she’s assigned to protect. But she’s ambushed by the club’s owner, Arch demon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure-seeking humans. He won’t release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…
After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy-sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries-old feelings. Now, their high-stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell…or a deliciously hot heaven.
Thoughts: The L.A. night club was the last place she wanted to enter. But guardian angel Serena must enter to find her current charge. She is stopped in her tracks by Julian Ascher, demon and owner of Devil's Paradise.
All in all this was a good read. It took me a bit longer that normal to finish this book, and I think that was due to the pace. Now It just might have been me but, I found it to be a bit slow. The cover really pulled me in to wanting to read this title, sadly I didn't love it as much as I wanted to. The two main characters were intriguing - especially Julian. Loved the danger and sensuality to the story. Luciana is also a character that seems very interesting and hopefully she'll get her own book.
Where Demons Fear To Tread is a story of danger, temptation and seduction. Angel and demon fans will want to give this one a peak.
Score: 3 Stars
