Among the Guardians, Alice Grey is known as the Black Widow—a woman trapped in a web spun by the demon Teqon. To save her soul, she agreed to deliver to Teqon the heart of the oldest and most powerful Guardian of all, or else be damned for eternity. After more than a hundred years, Teqon is calling in his debt.
Jake Hawkins is a novice Guardian whose gift of teleportation could be invaluable to Alice in determining her next move. But in aligning himself with her he never expected to fall in love. Now, their passionate flight to escape Alice’s damnable bargain is threatening both their souls. For they’re about to discover a hellish secret about the Guardians—something that will change their universe forever.
I'm not even sure what I can say about Demon Bound that hasn't already been said. I just want to tell everyone what a truly fabulous book this is.
I loved Jake. He was just incredible. I liked him when he was first introduced in the earlier books but I was a little surprised when I found out he was going to be the hero of Demon Bound. I mean I liked him a lot, but hero material? Well let me tell you - he can be in my hero hut any day! He was a warm, wonderful, honorable man who was just as sexy as hell. Hot. Damn.
I loved watching Alice come out of her shell, or her web as it were. She was all tangled up in her bargain with Teqon and until Jake came along pretty much at her wits end. She finally realized that shunning people wasn't going to make things easier for herself no matter what happened with the final outcome of the bargain. She was intelligent as could be and truly had a great sense of humor.
I just love Meljean's writing. She has a way of grabbing your attention from the beginning of the book and not letting go. The on-going story of the Guardian's is truly heating up and I can hardly wait to hear what happens next!!

Now Meljean, I know you said that Holly could have your babies and that I wasn't too old for you...and you weren't too picky...I'm hoping you still feel that way. I can finally get that red-headed baby I've always wanted!
