As captain of the merchant ship Marada, Sebastian has only one goal: keep his family and his crew safe while they deliver a curious parcel to a ruthless pirate. But when a bewitching young woman mysteriously appears on his ship, he finds it impossible to focus on the job…and to keep his hands off her.
Analia has known only one life: enslavement. In a bid for freedom, she escapes onto a craft led by a fearsome demon captain. If she is to maintain her freedom, she must gain Sebastian’s trust while concealing her true nature.
Together they contend with the hazards of open space, but what no one knows is her secrets are more dangerous than anything they have encountered before.
This is another book/series/author that I “stumbled” upon in my search for something new to read. I liked the premise, who doesn’t like a good demon hero? Especially one who has no intention of finding his one true mate? Those are my favorite. It’s so much fun watching them fight the inevitable. 😉
Analia had been through so much and she was more than a little broken. She had lost her will to survive more than once, but she always found a way to fight back. When the opportunity came to finally escape, she took it. She had no idea what she was escaping to, but it had to be better than the captivity she had lived in so far. What she found when she ended up on Sebastian’s ship was a family. Of course, it didn’t happen immediately, they weren’t an easily trusting bunch. There attraction was powerful, but they fought it as long as they could. Everyone around them knew they were destined to be together long before they did.
Another thing that I’m a sucker for is strong supporting characters and The Demon’s Possession had plenty. There was also plenty of action, suspense and a bad guy who everyone was ready to defend Analia against. I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the demons find their HEA. Net up is The Demon Slave and it features Marik, who was one of my favorite support characters in The Demon’s Possession.
