Review and Video of Urban Fantay Romance book, Demonically Tempted by Stacey Kennedy

Title: Demonically Tempted
Series: Frostbite, book 2
Author: Stacey Kennedy
Genre: Urban Fantasy Romance

Official Synopsis
Tess Jennings, now a member of the Memphis Police Department, is on her first cold case. The suspected suicide of Lizbeth Knapp ten years ago isn’t a theory her family accepts—they believe she was murdered.

But the case is only one of Tess’s worries. Ghosts are talking, and word of her abilities rapidly spreads. A dark ghost is terrifying the spirits of Memphis, and she must force the entity to cross over.
Tess doesn’t have to do this alone. Not only does she have her ghost-lover, Kipp McGowen, but the department has brought in a medium. Dane Wolfe might answer all her questions, but he also brings a world of trouble. Will Tess finally have all she’s ever wanted, or will everything she’s vowed to protect be ripped away?

My Review
This book is a never-ending rollercoaster ride of romance, action, danger and suspense, with a cliffhanger ending that will leave you begging for more.

Our favorite ghost whisperer Tess and  her ghost lover Kipp are back and this time they are taking on a demon. When ghosts start to flock to Tess for help from a dark spirit, Tess and Kipp uncover an evil unlike any other. To stop it, they must team up with Dane Wolfe, a mysterious agent with a unique talent of his own. He holds the key to helping Tess with her ghost talking abilities, but he is also up to something. With a demon to fight, murders and missing people popping up, and an agent proving to be more trouble then his worth, Kipp and Tess must fight to save innocent lives, and for each other

When everything is against you, will love truly conquer all or will it crumble under the weight?
I love, love, love this series. It is unique and only Stacey Kennedy can pull off a believable story where the heroine is human and the hero is a ghost . They have to fight for each other, while also fighting crime as Tess takes on her new role as a member of the Memphis PD. This installment proved to be an emotional rollercoaster and I cannot wait to see what happens in the next installment of the series!

Tess is as witty as ever. I love that she is so perfectly flawed and relatable. She has grown to trust her instincts and her abilities and now embraces the ghosts she once ignored. She is in no way fearless as she quakes in her boots each time she is faced with scary situations, this time with a demon, but she is courageous in that she fights her fears and does what she has to do. She doesn't have to worry to much with her ghostly lover by her side.

Kipp is the hero you would never see coming...literally since he's a ghost. Somehow Stacey Kennedy has pulled off creating a ghostly swoon-worthy hero who is fearless, charming, sexy and oozes masculinity,. He may be a ghost of a cop, but he is still on the job helping Tess as she gets the hang of how the PD operates.

Together they are on fire and the scenes between these two will have you all hot and bothered in no time flat. How does "the nasty" work when your partner is a ghost? Well, let's just say they get creative :-)

The side characters are also back and as funny and loving as ever. Some new additions are added to the mix including the ever mysterious Dane Wolfe. He also has special "abilities", and teaches Tess a few tricks to dealing with ghosts. But when he tries to come between Tess and Kipp, the unthinkable happens that changes everything. The cliffhanger ending will leave you stunned and searching for the release date for the next installment of this incredible series.

This is another heart-stopping, action-packed, sexually-charged thrill-ride of a read that will have you racing through the pages and desperately wanting more!

Demonically Tempted is rated 5 Fangs!

Ghosts are underplayed in paranormal writings. I started liking them again after reading the Odd Thomas series. This sounds like an intriguing book. thanks for sharing it.

Thanks for the review. I love books that are action packed. I'm going to have to pick this one up soon!!! This book reminds me of another wonderful book I just finished. It is called, "The Gift" by Slannyn D'Arcy. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one sitting. "The Gift" contains all my favorite elements in a good romance book. It has romance, likeable characters, action, intrigue and a paranormal aspect that makes the book well worth reading! http://www.slannyndarcy.com
