When a demon steals Haven's brother, she vows to get him back at any cost. He has made one too many deals with the devil and can't pay his debts. Haven is determined to rescue him. Coming from a magical family, she is able to summon the demon and intends to offer herself instead. Desiderus is drawn to Haven's pure soul and is immediately smitten. They strike a deal that may just thwart both of their plans. Haven is convinced she can find a loophole to the bargain she makes and Desiderus is jaded enough to believe he will strip the last ounce of purity, the thing that attracts him, from her to the point that she will no longer interest him.
The magnetism between Haven and Desiderus is sizzling. And let me say some of their encounters had me fidgeting in my chair, they were that hot! He is loyal to his demon lord and she is determined to take him down; their journey will be interesting to say the least.
The way the author slowly and painstakingly drew out the growing relationship between the demon and the supernatural hunter was excruciating and delicious at the same time. The characters are well fleshed out, including the secondary characters (who I hope get their own story down the road) and the plot runs at a steady pace. I could not put the book down once I started. There is heat, intrigue, mystery, and an undeniably charming cast of characters.
The other thing I loved about this book is how the author built a contemporary world where magic exists. Paranormal aspects are woven into normal, everyday living. There is an organization that Haven works for that captures magical creatures for research. Additionally, Haven encounters a religious cult with its own nefarious plans. The lines are blurred between good and evil throughout this book so I am curious as to what comes next.
Although the book is 224 pages I feel as if I have only scratched the surface of what is to come. I am looking forward to following Haven's journey and highly recommend Impure Bargains. Impure Bargains ...more

What I like the most is the look we get behind the scenes of the rock star lifestyle and the impact it has on living in the limelight. It isn't all glamour, wealth and parties.
Wolf Phelan suffers from anxiety and panic attacks to the point he destroyed his band and his marriage. Kerri Coleson is a school teacher who's had a very difficult year that leaves her exhausted and frayed at the seams. Together, these two people spontaneously combust with some seriously hot and sensual sex scenes. What started out as six weeks of companionship without the romantic complications quickly turned to something more for both of them. Beyond the sex, there is a chemistry you only find when two people are fated to be together. They complete each other.
While this was a quick read, the book is filled with plenty of plot, background and character building to leave me completely satisfied. I highly recommend Rock the Wolfe....more
