Review by B.A. Ruggiero for

Demonic possession is the last thing on the mind of psychic consultant Eden Riley. When the police summon Eden and her unpredictable powers to help find an elusive serial killer, she is teamed up with the hunky Detective Ben Hanson.

After Ben saves Eden and guns down the killer, she discovers a demon named Darrak had possessed the criminal. With his host dead, Darrak needs another body to invade, and Eden makes an ideal choice.

Darrak’s been hopping from host to host for three hundred years, looking for the black witch that cursed him. Eden’s powers allow him to communicate with her. He can also take shape during the day, but at night, he must return within her by dissolving into black smoke and seeping pleasurably into her body.

The alluring and sexy Darrak does not intend Eden harm but if he doesn’t break the curse, his possession will drain her energy. She will be dead within a year.

“The Demon in Me,” the first book in Michelle Rowen’s “Living in Eden” series, is an entertaining ride through a paranormal world filled with demons, witches, shape shifters and fairies. Eden and Darrak make a compelling and amusing team as they learn to trust each other and live together as one.

Their banter is witty and humorous, most notably in a date scene between Eden and Ben in which Darrak cannot contain his overwhelming jealousy.

Darrak is a fiery (literally), charismatic demon that Eden cannot seem to resist, even though she knows an ordinary life with Ben would be a wiser choice.

Rowen plants a lot of seeds and provides many twists to the story. And she offers a surprise ending that will leave readers eagerly awaiting her next book, “Something Wicked,” which is scheduled for release in October.
