Feisty witch Maggie enjoys her work as a paranormal law enforcement officer—that is, until she’s assigned to protect a teenager with major attitude and a sleazy boyfriend. A group of satanic Mayans priests has decided Courtney has a drop of divine blood in her—making her just the virgin sacrifice they need to release their God and rule the world.
To prevent this catastrophe, Maggie must team up with half fire demon Declan, the proprietor of Damnation Alley, an underground club and busy demon portal. Declan will be damned if he’ll allow his demon race to be blamed for the malicious acts of some evil Mayans. So he decides to seduce the sexy witch in an effort to discover what the law enforcement agency knows about the Mayan’s plans, but then things get more than a little hot, and Declan finds himself seriously entangled with the sexiest woman he’s ever met…
When a paranormal being steps out of line, Maggie is there to put them in their place.  She is a witch that works for a paranormal law enforcement agency by the name of The Hellion Guard and does her job well.  But when things get out of hand at a local club by the name of Damnation Alley, she offers to go check out what is going on.  While there she notices that something just isn't adding up right and let's the owner of the club Declan know that going to make sure she gets to the bottom of things.  Declan is a half fire demon and is the new owner of the club.  He is responsible for overseeing the demon portal within it. He truly feels a purpose being in charge of the club and likes what he sees in Maggie.  Soon they are sharing dreams and realize that this may be the start of something between them.

I found Declan to be an interesting character and could understand his feelings of wanting more out of life.  He realized pretty early on that he wanted Maggie for a mate.  I didn't really feel anything for Maggie.  Her character didn't really appeal to me.

All in all, I didn't really enjoy this book as much as I thought I would.  I really wanted to like it because it seemed like a cool concept, but found myself getting bored with the storyline and putting the book down. 

I'm giving Demon's Are A Girl's Best Friend a rating of:  


  1. I had a hard time with Maggie-I liked all the other characters more then her.
