Although she is a premier enforcement officer for the paranormal Hellion Guard, feisty witch Maggie O’Malley is not equipped to babysit a recalcitrant teenager targeted as a sacrifice by some fanatical Mayans.
Maggie almost destroyed his underground club singlehandedly, but half- fire demon Declan isn’t one to hold a grudge, especially after he discovers they’re fighting the same battle. Initially Declan’s concerned with salvaging the club he’s worked so hard to build; he’s more accountant than demon. But when his sister becomes a target he jumps in with both feet. Teen Courtney proves to be a handful as she constantly gets into trouble, further endangering her life. Maggie and Declan begin a sizzling affair that almost gets in the way of their mission.
