Extended Description
A demon’s bite cursed her…Now Raven Grace walks the line between Other and humanity, all with a special purpose…

Raven Grace was a college senior with ambitions of a career in law enforcement when she met the demon Aega, whose bite turned her from mortal to Shapeshifter. Now a member of the Recovery Organization, Raven keeps the peace between humans and errant Hellhounds, trolls, wizards and the like while trying to track down Aega and bring him to justice.

Raven Grace was a college senior with ambitions of a career in law enforcement when she met the demon Aega, whose bite turned her from mortal to Shapeshifter. Now a member of the Recovery Organization, Raven keeps the peace between humans and errant Hellhounds, trolls, wizards and the like while trying to track down Aega and bring him to justice. After a particularly dicey encounter one night with a Hellhound, she goes to the aid of a girl who’s been attacked and near death—and is amazed to find Aega’s bite mark on the girl’s arm. Determined to get to the bottom of this, she revisits the victim’s apartment and there discovers her closet is a portal to a parallel universe, where people she knows lead vastly different lives. She also gets a glimpse of the Recovery Captain there—a six foot, redheaded Scotsman named Finn McPhee, whose sexy accent and even sexier bod sets her senses aflame. Listening to Finn speak to a subordinate, Raven learns that Aega is in that dimension as well, and is responsible for several more murders of young girls.

Convinced the key to destroying the demon lies there, Raven crosses over and finds herself face to face with Finn, who doubts her claim she comes from a parallel universe—until she shows him the portal and a glimpse at the life she left behind. Finn agrees to a partnership, but complicating issues is the fact he’s a Mentos—he can read minds—which means Raven has to keep her lusty thoughts under wraps. As they probe into the lives and backgrounds of the demon’s victims, they start to notice certain similarities, one of which is the fact all the victims bear an oddly shaped birthmark—and since Raven’s is slightly different, she begins to think there might be a special reason why she, out of all the victims, was turned and not killed. Seeking answers, Finn takes Raven to the magickal underworld, where an ancient fae informs them the demon’s quest is rooted in Scottish mythology and magick. As they delve deeper into legend, the truth comes to light—Aega is only a pawn, subservient to another, darker demon…a being who knows the truth about Raven’s heritage, and who orchestrated her return to this parallel universe for the ultimate showdown. Now, Finn and Raven find their passion for one another must take a backseat to Raven’s battle with a dark force who won’t be satisfied until he’s claimed her soul for his very own…

My Review
This book is a nail-biting, heart-pumping, thigh-crunching, heat-inducing, mystery-filled thrill of a read that will have you addicted from page 1.
 
Raven was a normal girl partying at the club when one encounter with a handsome man, who turns out to be a demon, leaves her violated and puts an end to her human life. After a demon bite transforms her into a shapeshifter, she decides to join the law enforcement Recovery Unit whose main job is to keep the Supes in check. But behind every investigation is the hope of tracking the demon who turned her. The problem is that she never thought the demon may just in fact be tracking her...With every lead turning cold, she travels to a parallel dimension and seeks the help of hot, Scottish detective Finn who has been working the same case in his world. Together with the help of their friends they set out on a demon hunting mission, but with the sexual tension going through the roof, Finn and Raven must soon fight another battle: what will happen once and if they capture the demon?: will she return home or will she give it all up for the man she loves? With the demon back on a murder spree, her love life up in the air, and everything she loves hanging in the balance -  it's up to Raven to bring down the demon and set it all right before she loses everything, including her soul.
