The legend of the Gypsy Lady had been passed down for centuries, and now it is Cora's turn to dance in the square.

My Review

What a fabulous story involving witches and Demons. I was enthralled from the very first chapter when Cora kisses the Demon Prince, Darius, to distract him so that she can flee his presence. From that point I was thinking that I was going to like this story!

Cora is a witty character; she lives as the mysterious Gypsy Girl and appears on stage to bring hope to the villagers. Her powers are mute during the day, so the Demon King doesn't see her as a threat. For her to be a strong Demon Hunter, she will need her powers to come out so that she can call on them at any time of day. She is a strong person and she will do anything so that she is not a pawn on either side.

Darius is a great guy for a Demon Prince and he was immediately captivated by the red-haired beauty from that very first kiss!! He even heads south to try and locate the girl who has piqued his interest. He is one sexy man, and I was hoping he would appear to me!!! But that didn’t happen and he kept tracking down his earth Beauty.

Together our two main characters need to set aside their attraction to work together to try and defeat the demon King to prevent a war between the Demons and the Demon Hunters. I enjoyed the storyline and the chemistry these two characters had and the lengths that they go to for one another as well. There was a steamy sex scene thrown in and enough action to keep me entertained until the very end. The only thing I would have to criticise would be that the story wasn't long enough! I will definitely read more from this author!!

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
