Underage witches, a breakout from demon prison and a new hellgate... What could go wrong?
Reaper extraordinaire, Laney Larson, is stuck in Liberty, Oakwood of all places, for two reasons. One, there's way more paranormal activity going on than normal for a little town like Liberty. And two, a sexy as hell cop called Troy.
So when the proverbial hits the fan and they get wind of a demon break-out from the third hell, a prison even the demon king himself won't set foot in, what's a reaper to do but strap on her blades and help track the escapee down? But then the creature takes her man, and all bets are off.
A reaper, a demon and a cop...will Death claim them all, or just one?
This book is part of the "Liberty, Oakwood" Series:
#1. The Reaper and the Cop
#2. Dead Reaper Walking
Catch Book 1 here:
Death's big business. For Laney Larson, it's a full time job.
The latest in a long line of Reapers, Laney hits Liberty, Oakwood expecting the usual 'reap and run' type of job. However the small town holds far more secrets than she expects, including a sexy cop who blind-sides her reaper instincts big-time.
Liberty. It used to be a nice town until the things that go bump in the night moved in.
Detective Troy Regan moved to Liberty to claw back a little of his soul after working homicide in the big city. But the sleepy little down has problems of the paranormal kind and it's police department have gone from calls about lost cats to Boggarts in the basement. Then the seriously nasty stuff moved in.
Sparks fly when a sexy Reaper meets a hot as hell Cop...
Troy's not sure exactly what flavor of paranormal Laney is, but he doesn't care. She's tiny, delicate and gorgeous. When he finds a Lycan looming over her in an alley, all his protective instincts flare up. He needs to get her home, keep her safe...in his bed.
But is she the answer he's been looking for to fill the empty spot in his heart, or the most dangerous creature he's ever met?

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days.
So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all...
(But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.)
The boring part: A full time author and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is book 2 in the Liberty, Oakwood series. I really feel I needed to read book 1. It literally picks up where the other left off. (Or so I'm assuming based on the way the story reads). There are things I feel like would have enhanced the story if I had known.
Beyond that, the story is good. It's sexy, interesting and quite the twist on a paranormal romance. There aren't many good stories I've read with a Grim Reaper. Laney was witty and fun. I liked her Bad-Chick attitude. Troy I feel really rolled with the punches. And he was thrown quite a few. Though some parts felt like they were missing (again, I should have read the first book), the author does well explaining to you what the character is and what she's doing. I rather enjoyed the story and am looking forward to going back to read the first book. As with all of this authors books, when they get sexy, they get SEXY! I really liked it.
