The Demon Within by Rebecca Royce


Dakota Daniels is an exorcist. Or at least she used to be, until a demon destroyed her life, killing her mother and sending her into hiding. She never knows what’s around the next corner or whether she’ll live through the night.

Brady Knox, billionaire tech guru and media darling, is a man used to getting what he wants. Except when it comes to his sister Sydney. She is the secret he never tells a soul. After all, how do you tell the world your sister has been possessed since she was ten years old without seeming like a lunatic?

When Brady seeks out Dakota’s assistance, he expects to get it. When she doesn’t comply, he’s willing to use every resource at his disposal—even if that means seducing her into doing his bidding.

Dakota’s body yearns for Brady but she isn’t easily fooled, and if she decides to help him it will be on her own terms—assuming they can both make it through the night with their souls intact.

I love stories about exorcists and demon hunting. This one was fun. Here you have Dakota trying to outrun a past that has the capability to catch up with her every time. When Brady seeks her out to help his sister and she gets back into her old life, habits fall back into place and old fears die. So do some demons. This story was hot, quick and had just enough of a shiver enclosed in its pages to give me the sexy horror movie thrill I was looking for. 

The book is a short one, but then lately I have been enjoying some smaller reads interspersed with longer ones. Makes me happy to sit before bed and polish off a whole novel. Especially an exorcist tale like this. Short, sweet and sexy!
