Trained by the Arcane Society to fulfill her legacy as an Arcane Hunter, Anya Carlisle knows nothing but the loneliness that comes with being a hunter. One evening, in a place she never should've been, throws Anya into the heated snare of Dex Grigori. She should've seen him as the enemy, but instead her body longs for his touch in ways she's never experienced.
From the first moment Dex sets eyes on Anya, he wants her all for himself. After one night of forbidden passion he's left craving more of her, until he discovers how wrong for him she is. She's a deadly hunter that kills without question and he's exactly the kind of demon she's been trained to eliminate. Yet his fierce desire to have her brings him dangerously close to her heart, where he soon discovers she is far more than the cold killer he anticipated.

This is the first book of Betty Screffler's that I am reading and it was really interesting!A PNR with a a different kind of story and a completely unique world.It had me hooked from the blurb itself.
Anya is an Arcane Hunter, trained for the very purpose of fighting and killing demons.But lately she's been feeling unsatisfied with her life and wondering whether some of the targets that she's been sent are innocent.She wants to quit her job and lead a normal life, so she decides to do so.
But the thing is even though she wants to leave that life behind, it doesn't seem to want to let her go.
When she goes out with her friends to a club, she finds out that there are demons there, and she meets Dex- an incubus.The attraction flares hot between them, but they are from opposite sides of the fight.Will they be able to put their differences aside and stay together?
Anya also finds out many things about her heritage that was kept from her.This changes her entire world and her perception of things.
I liked Anya's character.Even though she is tough, kickass and strong, she has a beautiful innocence and vulnerability to her character that other PNR heroines don't have without seeming like a damsell in distress.Dex is also a really hot incubus!I just wished we could have seen more of their relationship development!I wonder how it will go, since he is an incubus?Is there a possibility of Anya ending up over tired and drained, and will this affect their relationship?
Anya's brother, Leo was quite an insecure character.He has a host of issues and you'll have to read to find out what happens.
I really loved the supporting characters in the novel too.They added a lot to the story.
This book had the perfect mix of romance,steam and action with a dose of humor at appropriate times!I hope we will have another book and if we do I wonder whether it will focus on the same couple?
Betty Shreffler is a self-proclaimed nerd and nature enthusiast obsessed with folklore, photography, writing, reading, movies, board games, hiking, gardening and spending time with her husband and five fur babies. Not necessarily in that exact order though. During her outdoor adventures she's been face to face with an alligator, a bear and a coyote, making for some of the most memorable experiences of her life. She loves to capture and share the world's beauty through the lens of her beloved Nikon camera. Her work experience has been diverse from working as a Ranger for the National Park Service to management positions in Fortune 500 companies. She’s lived in four different states and moved homes twelve times. She received a BA in organizational management and minor in sociology, although her heart has always belonged to writing and photography. Growing up, she read romance or supernatural novels and jotted down poems and short stories to express her emotions and alleviate the characters' voices in her head. Not much has changed, only now her stories are lengthier and her characters more interesting.
