Seducing the Demon Huntress by Victoria Davies

This was the first book I’ve ever read by this author. It’s only about 78 pages but I loved it. The two main characters are Kerilyn and Arawn. Kerilyn is from a long line of demon hunters. Most of her family members are dead from fighting demons. She lives alone and one of the few visitors she has is Arawn. Arawn is Lord of the Spirits and his realm is the Netherworld. Every Halloween since she was 16, Arawn has come to visit her. Halloween being the one night spirits and demons can leave the Netherworld. Due to her line of work, and things she’s heard from her family, she is naturally wary of Arawn and his motives for visiting her. However, at the same time, she also finds herself strangely attracted. No matter how much she questions his motivation, she can’t help herself from meeting on the other side of her fence each Halloween and indulging in their verbal dance. Though this story was short, I felt like the author did a great job of pulling you in and making the chemistry between Kerilyn & Arawn interesting to read about. The sexual tension was the good kind, rather than the frustrating kind. I totally fell for the character of Arawn. He was a delicious mix of sexy, slightly dangerous, and yet sweet. I loved how they managed to work together and how, like Arawn said, this romance was largely about trust issues. I would love to read more stories from this author in general, and I would specifically love it if she decides to write more stories involving these two characters. This was just the kind of story I was looking for today – very satisfying to read.
