The Accidental Demon Slayer
It’s never a good day when an ancient demon shows up on your toilet bowl. For Lizzie Brown, that’s just the beginning. Soon her hyperactive terrier starts talking, and her long-lost biker witch Grandma is hurling Smuckers jars filled with magic. Just when she thinks she’s seen it all, Lizzie learns she’s a demon slayer—and all hell is after her.
There was a bounty on my head. I fled with only one thought in mind: survival. I bought a cabin, sight unseen, in the wilderness. It came with quite a few surprises including a handsome stranger next door, Jaxson Monroe. He also happens to be my own personal hero, saving my life. It’s complicated and I don’t want to disappoint him, but he wants to know why I’ve moved here. If I tell him the truth, he will never want to see me again. I’m not the sweet innocent girl he thinks I am.
Famiglia prima di tutto. Family first of all. That’s the motto the Petrettis lived by when New York was governed by the Italian Cartel, and our name was worth something. Now, it’s disrespected. Now, it’s tainted with hate. I had plans to alter that, but the game changed when my pregnant wife was kidnapped by a rival. Her body was never found, and I’ve paid to guarantee our daughter’s safety ever since.
I moonlight at Ma Maison as an escort to pay for Mom’s pricey psych treatments. Beautiful, broken billionaires pay ungodly sums of money to be with me because I’m empathic — I feel in my own body what they feel in theirs. I can heal what broke them. When gorgeous high stakes poker player Dylan McAlister hires me, my empathic ability returns with a fury. I feel the emotions that torment him. His shame roots in my belly. His heartache compresses my chest. His fear stabs me in my back. It’s overwhelming, it’s excruciating, but I can’t abandon him — I’m falling in love with him.
