What can I say about Maureen Child’s latest, “Bedeviled”? Well, it reminded me an awful lot of her ‘Fiend’ series for one…except with Fae instead of demons. It still entertained and amused me, even though I didn’t get any hot sex included (YET), I’m still hopeful that the next book will see our heroine involved with her sexy Fae knight.
Maggie already has enough on her plate. She still has a bunch of business windows to get painted for the holiday season and she’s watching her niece whose mother is off having her chakra’s aligned or something like that. So when she stops by her ex’s office to drop off the rest of his ‘stuff’ she’s a bit rattled to see him being eaten (and NOT in a good way) by a female-looking creature with horns and a tail. When the creature comes after Maggie, she fights back and ends up destroying the creatures necklace…and gaining Fae powers???? Holy hand grenades, Batman…Maggie really doesn’t have time for this! Not even when the Fae sex god, uh I mean warrior…Fae warrior suddenly appears in her life. Even if he does make her girly parts sing three-part harmony, she just doesn’t have time to train, fight, and defeat the evil Fae Queen…nope, no time at all for that. Now if all these other creatures would just leave her alone, she’d be happy…mostly…OK, satisfied?
Very funny beginning book for Child’s new series. Now if she’ll just provide some hot Fae sex…I mean relationship, of course, then I’ll give it five stars! Humor, the paranormal, sexy men, ugly trolls, demons, and family issues…what’s not to love?
