GIVEAWAY & REVIEW: Where Demons Fear to Tread by Stephanie Chong



Description


About the book:
Fledgling guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil’s Paradise nightclub on a mission – to retrieve the wayward Hollywood “It Boy” she’s assigned to protect.  But she’s ambushed by the club’s owner, Archdemon Julian Ascher.  The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure-seeking humans.  He won’t release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard.  Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…
After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again.  Yet this sexy-sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries-old feelings.  Now, their high-stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell…or a deliciously hot heaven.


About the author:
Stephanie worked as a lawyer at a top-tier Canadian firm and completed five university degrees before landing her dream job: romance novelist.  Her degrees include a J.D. and a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, and a Master’s in Creative Writing from Oxford University.
When she’s not writing, Stephanie enjoys yoga, traveling and outdoor adventures.  She lives in Vancouver with her husband and their pug, Dexter.

MY THOUGHTS
ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

Serena St. Clair dies while trying to rescue a mother and her young daughters from a horrible car crash in which the only survivors are the two children.  Serena finds herself "recycled" as a newly minted guardian angel selected to follow Hollywood's latest star, Nick.  Trailing him one night, Serena finds herself in a nightclub known for illegal activities and meets the owner, Julian, who is immediately taken with her.  She also has feelings for him, even though she recognizes his incarnate evil as a demon.  The story mostly takes place over a week in Las Vegas as Serena tries to save Nick from himself and his demons--both literal and figurative.  Serena doesn't realize her superiors have other plans for her.  And that is all I am going to tell you about the plot since you MUST read this one!

This latest trend of angels and demons is really an age old story about good versus evil.  Chong delivers on that story, but like a musician, she twists the words so that while the melody may be the same, it is a completely different song.  The characters of Serena and Julian mesh so perfectly together that is like music when they interact.  I love how she shows that they each have elements of good and evil existing within themselves and nothing is black or white when it comes to redemption.  So this could have been just another angel story and luckily it doesn't.  I read this in one night and can't wait for the next book in this series since there are many other characters that can be developed.
