Half-demon Jessie Garrett is searching for an evil vampire that's been preying upon children. She wants to claim the rogue vamp's soul and send it to hell. To find the dead man walking she must partner with another bloodsucker, Drake, even though she doesn't trust him. While Jessie works with Drake, she learns not all vampires are killers and discovers the cold-blooded vamp is a temptation too difficult to resist.

After the fiend abducts another child and Jessie has a near fatal experience with vampires, she turns to Jeremy, a demon she bumped into at a club, and makes a deal with him for his help. Drake disapproves, and Jessie soon finds herself wedged between two volatile creatures. When the chance comes to save the child's life and claim the evil vamp's soul, she must decide whom she can trust—a vampire who cools her feverish desires, or a demon hell-bent on seducing her.

The first novel in the Soul Catcher series, Claiming the Evil Dead by Mary Abshire is an action packed Urban Fantasy that is perfectly blended with Paranormal Romance. But, don't be fooled by the 'erotic' labeling on the cover because while this novel is full of sexy characters with a passionate relationship, this is nowhere close to being as graphic as you would expect from something deemed Erotic Romance. Instead, the relationships within this novel are built on great chemistry that slowly culminates into an inferno of physical need that over time becomes a large part of the relationship. Because of this, this novel is still for adult readers, but is crafted in such a way as to appeal to those who feign away from overly explicit detail. Without a doubt, this novel had me captivated with a unique premise, interesting characters and decadent romance that is sure to please fans of both Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy!

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Scars

Advisory: Sexual content
