Image of A Fiend In Need

Surviving the demands of modern life
is a big enough pain, never mind adding in the pressure of saving the world from nasty demons. Cassie's first-person exploits range from the weird and wacky to the downright dangerous, but she's always ready with a snarky aside. Child's sexy and sarcastically funny series is sure to amuse.

Cassidy Burke inherited her powers as a demon duster just a month ago. Discovering that someone's created a website with a reward for her death is the icing on the cake. Then life gets really complicated when Brady, a six-foot-five faery, turns up and claims sanctuary.

Brady has been the sex slave and prisoner of Vanessa, Queen of the Demons, for a century. Upon his escape, he flees to Cassie, knowing that only a demon duster can protect him. Cassie is inclined to help Brady for his cooking alone -- never mind his intense sexuality and rapport with her teenage daughter Thea. Still, going to war with a demon queen is bound to get pretty nasty.
