Amelia's life was at a crossroads when she met the mysterious Grant. She had been barely keeping a roof over her young brother's head. Now that her boss has discovered that Amelia is indeed female, instead of the boy she pretended to be, he intends to change her duties to include servicing him. Amelia literally runs into the enigmatic Grant while fleeing the tavern in the pouring rain. After he lends her his cloak, she begins to have the most sensual dreams about him. Grant is half demon. He doesn't understand his sudden and all-consuming attraction to Amelia but he can't stay away from her in either the dream or real world. Grant tries control his overwhelming need for her blood but is compelled to help her. Offering her a job is a start but he must find the answers to his questions if he is to truly keep her safe. The only person he can turn to is his demon mother and hope that she help before his needs overtake his control. Amelia has no idea of the true danger she could be in.

This is the first story in the Blood Royals series. It's a smart mixture of historical romance and demon lore. Amelia and Grant have great chemistry and the dream sequences are particularly vivid and sensual. I liked the way the story played out and the development of Amelia and Grant's relationship. The demon part of Grant makes him a fascinating character and the struggle with his hunger for Amelia's blood seems so real. Amelia is fighter and a very passionate woman. When the two come together, it's smouldering. I don't read many demon stories but I'm so glad I gave this one a try. It was very enjoyable and I'm eager to read the next story about Grant's mother's return to the Demon realm.
