From the back of the book:
The four Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, wealth, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra as well. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient family secret, they also hold the fate of the world in their hands – between cocktails.
Gallery owner Gillian Caruthers is a sensation in the art world – in this world, that is. In her other world she’s called the Assassin, a real knockout with an affinity for snuffing out dimension – jumpers who foul up her personal space. She never expected to join forces with one. But when a plague of murderous demons plunges the earth into darkness, she has no choice but to get a little help from a being who knows his stuff.
Arath, the demon king, isn’t quite the scaly thing she expected. In fact, he’s kind of hot – and a bit of an enigma, if his strange past is any indication. In solving that riddle, as well as finding the cause for the sudden influx of mystical creatures on Earth, Gillian may just have to work more closely with Arath than she’d anticipated. And somewhere between the light and the darkness they might discover they have more in common than they imagined…
Candace Havens writes fast moving, action packed paranormal romance. I loved how quickly the story begins. Gilly is in charge of the demons that jump to Earth, she must send them back or kill them. To the rest of the world she is a party girl and a force to be reckoned with in the art world. One of the things I liked was the balance Gilly has to work on between her job and her guardian duties. Arath is a very interesting character. As the new King of the demons he is a force to be reckoned with, but Gilly doesn’t let any man – or demon – intimidate her. Candace Havens writes with such imagination that the reader gets sucked right in. Can’t wait for the next installment of the Caruthers sisters.
the book girl gives THE DEMON KING AND I 4/5:)
