Part of a small demon lair in Las Vegas, tattooist Harper Wallis lives a pretty simple life. That changes overnight when she discovers that her psychic mate, or 'anchor', is a guy who's rumoured to be the most powerful demon in existence.
Compelling, full of secrets and armed with raw sexuality, Knox Thorne is determined to claim her as his anchor, creating a psychic bond that will prevent their inner demons from ever turning rogue. The billionaire also wants Harper in his bed. She's not so sure she wants either of those things. No one seems to know what breed of demon Knox is, only that he's more dangerous than anything she's ever before encountered. But he refuses to walk away. And when an unknown danger starts closing in on Harper, it seems that Knox is the only one who can keep her safe.
As Prime of his Las Vegas lair and a successful businessman, Knox Thorne is used to being in control. He's also used to people fearing and obeying him. Harper does neither, which unexpectedly amuses him. Unpredictable, elusive and complex, she draws Knox and his inner demon like nothing ever has.
Knox is used to getting what he wants, and he wants Harper. He'll have her, and he'll keep her safe from the threat that looms over her. Because Knox protects what's his. He won't allow anyone to take her from him. Even if it will mean letting the demon inside him rise and wreak the havoc it was created to make.

I managed to listen to about thirty minutes of this audiobook before requesting a refund. The narrators voice got on every nerve in my body. Her characters voices very abysmal to say the least. This is the first audiobook I have ever returned and I've listened to some bad narrators so that tells you just how bad this one was. Awful.
As a rule I like the paranormal books for their action packed stories and strong characters. As a bloke I am not really into chick lit and romance books which this most definitely is.
I listened to this because I accidentally stumbled on the Phoenix pack series of books by the same author and thoroughly enjoyed them.
This book is sort of a cross between Feral Sins by Suzanne Wright and the Imp Series by Debra Dunbar -though I didn't enjoy it quite as much as either.
Thats not to say its a bad book and I will almost certainly listen to Blaze in a month or so.
Has all the hallmarks of a Suzanne Wright book - Feisty female lead character, Dark brooding possessive male, plenty of sex and of course life threatening danger for our heroine. Oh and did I mention some disfunctional relatives. The snappy humour we expect from our heroines is all there
Bit too much of the sex and not enough plot in this one for me though and the male Knox Thorne (even the name is a giveaway) is really a bit too much of a stereotype for me. Dark brooding dominant dangerous etc
Harper is a better character much more interesting and I really liked her and actually cared what happened to her.
Cat Douchette does a great job as narrator and really brings the book to life - very similar to Jill Redfields performances in the Phoenix pack books (and much better than Angela Rysk in the Imp series)
I cant give the story 5 stars though - it really is far too predictable and the sex gets a bit boring after a while, there is a bit too much of it. The underlying plot is quite good though and definitely gets a bit hard to put down in places. Almost all the paranormals in this book are Demons though there are some nice twists on the different types Imps feature prominently but our 2 leads are a bit more interesting and have useful powers
If you like other Suzanne Wright books its definitely worth a credit but I don't think its as good as Feral Sins as a starter of a series
I really enjoyed this book the storyline kept up the suspense, the characters were interesting and had depth. The only problem was the narrator's voices for the different characters were annoying from the start, they were very high pitched and nasally. But a really good read overall .
