Maris had lived her entire life as a freak—a too tall, too plain, too odd a
woman who sees and senses the presence of otherworldly entities. A total recluse, Talia spends all of her time
on her research, living a contented, quiet life with only her loyal feline
companion for company. Until that sedate
existence comes crashing down around her when she starts being pursued by demon
Evils. And if there’s one thing she
hates…it’s demons. She ditches every one
of them until Sentinel demon, Drew Winston, finally wins the game of pursuit by
trapping her with a deceitful, underhanded trick. Not only is she infuriated by Drew’s stunt,
but when he tells her she’s his mate, Talia wonders if the too handsome, too
tall, too sexy Sentinel demon needs some serious psychological help. All she wants is to get rid of Drew as
quickly as possible! But the stubborn Irishman isn’t budging, and her
resistance slowly crumbles as she gets pulled deeper and deeper into the world
of the Sentinels by the relentless attempts of the Evils to capture her. And what is she supposed to do with Drew
Winston, a Sentinel demon who would do anything, even sacrificing his own life,
to protect her?
two things Drew Winston loves about his life: being a billionaire Sentinel
demon and food. He loves having
everything he wants, and he’s perfectly happy slaying Evils and rescuing unsuspecting
humans, until the irritating Dr. Talia Maris evades him one time too many. Yeah…sure…maybe he was a little devious in the method he used to finally meet her
face-to-face, but he ends up being the one who is actually surprised when he
discovers the elusive woman is actually his mate. Worse yet, she’s being pursued by ancient
Evils, and it brings every protective instinct he has to the surface, making
him want to kill anything that might hurt Talia. Maybe Drew had never wanted or expected a mate
of his own, but once he has Talia in his grasp, he’s determined to keep her
safe and make her want to stay with him forever.
bringing you back,” Drew informed her casually.
“You’re being pursued by Evils, and you’re not safe here. I have no idea why they’re after you, but
they obviously are. You’ll stay with
me. You’re my mate, and that’s something
we have to work out.”
“It doesn’t mean we have to do
anything about it. You could find
someone else.” Strangely, that thought
didn’t sit well with her at all, and she felt a sharp, proprietary instinct as
she said the words, a jolt of negative reaction to her own statement fluttering
in her belly. She didn’t want him to
find anyone else.
“There is no one else, Talia. A Sentinel has one mate. Period.
There isn’t anyone else for me but you.”
He turned to her, his eyes turbulent and stormy. “It isn’t a choice, and you have no idea how
I feel right now.”
“How do you feel?” Talia wasn’t sure why she asked. She could see the truth on his face. Gone were all traces of his earlier humor,
the carefree look replaced with the expression of a predator that had found its
her back against the arm of the sofa, his body imprisoned her, enthralling her
with the heat radiating in waves from his muscular form. “Like a demon,” he answered hoarsely, his
eyes dropping possessively to her mouth.

The first book In The Sentinel Demon Series, a paranormal romance by NY Times and USA Today bestselling author J.S. Scott.
27 year old Kat Larson is haunted by demons. Literally. And how was she to know that there was more than one type of demon? The Evils want to destroy her soul, while billionaire Sentinel demon, Zachary Winston, claims that he wants to protect her. Kat opts for Zach’s protection…but it doesn’t come without a price. It requires a demon bargain…and what he suggests surprises poor Kat almost as much as the fact that demons really do exist. Why would the handsome billionaire want to make such an agreement with a curvy, plain redheaded woman like her?
Billionaire Zachary Winston has a mission and it’s one that he vows to complete. As a Sentinel demon, his task is to protect Kat from the Evils that will corrupt her soul. His only problem is that she is his “radiant,” the one woman who can lighten the darkness of his demon existence and be his eternal mate. Zach has to fight an internal war between man and demon as he protects Kat, not quite sure which one will win. He’s one part demon, one part man, but they both yearn for Kat’s lush, full figured body and kind, compassionate heart. As Zach becomes more and more enchanted with Kat, he’s hoping she can learn to love a lonely man/demon that’s only slightly wicked.
This paranormal romance contains graphic language, steamy love scenes, and lovable alpha males that also happen to be mythological demons.
