Kendra Morton has trained and worked side-by-side with Thor Kensington for years, hunting the demons who come to earth from the parallel world of Torlin. Despite his dark allure, she knows him to be a cold and unbending leader. So why does her heart still race with desire every time he's near?

Half-demon Thor has always wanted to be Kendra's lover, even though she's off limits. If takes an attempt on her life by a traitorous saboteur to make him act on their hidden passion. But now that he has the woman of his dreams, can he protect her from the unknown assassin…and from his own inner demon?

This story jumped to the point right at the beginning in a cataclysm of the past eighteen months of Kendra and half-demon Thor working in direct contact with one another. Covered in a deadly ash, residue from her latest demon vanquishing, Kendra is forced to strip down to her bra and panties to keep the poison from seeping through her clothes and into her skin. Thor, her boss and trainer, offers his coat and for the first time Kendra catches a look of lust in his eyes.

Thor has always held himself at a distance from Kendra but with her equipment malfunctioning more and more as of late, his nerves are a wreck from worry over her well-being. He comes to the conclusion that someone is out to kill the woman he loves and suddenly confessing his feelings becomes the easiest thing in all the world.

Demon Love, sadly, is all love and little demon. Thor disappointed me. He wasn't very demon-like and his father was even worse. Taking race out of the equation, the story is likeable enough but when it comes to my loveable demons, I think I'll be sticking with Michelle Rowen. 2 out of 5 stars.
