In a world where humans offer themselves as hosts to demons, Morgan Kingsley is an exorcist. Not all demons are invited in, some are illegal and have taken over a human host without their consent. Laws are in place to protect the population against the incredible strength a demon possessed human has. When someone is killed because of one, Morgan is called in to exorcise the demon. She tries to avoid her demon loving family, especially her brother Andrew, and balances her life with Brian, the boyfriend who’s everything she wants him to be.

When Adam White, demon host and head of the Special Forces who police for rogue demons, asks Morgan to exorcise a demon from his lover, she’s obligated to perform her job. Sure that this exorcism will be burned into her memory forever, Morgan isn’t surprised when it becomes an emotional affair.

Realizing that somewhere along the line something’s gone wrong, Morgan finds her life being shared with a demon. Being in a position she would never consent to is disconcerting enough, but when her life is threatened she’s left with no choice but to follow the demon’s suggestion. A suggestion that puts her in the hands of Adam, and into the middle of an ongoing demon battle that Morgan can only hope they’re strong enough to survive.

The Devil Inside is the first book in the Morgan Kingsley series. Morgan doesn’t like demons, she exorcises them, but when she finds herself possessed by a gorgeous demon that actually seems like a decent guy, she’ll have to admit that not all of them are pure evil. With characters you can’t help but love, and those you love to hate, Ms. Black begins her new series with a storyline that’s full of action and surprises. It’s sometimes dark, often loving and completely sexy.

I had this on my wish list, but I've got a question. If the demon is possessing her, how does she know what he looks like? Is her relationship with the demon possessing her or the possessed guy?

Thanks so much for your kind comments about The Devil Inside! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

And to answer Scooper's question, Lugh communicates with her through dreams in which he is the starring character. Of course, since he controls the dreams, he also controls what he looks like . . .

Wendy - It should be waiting on the shelves now when you get to the book store! :)

Crystal - You know I'm always happy to add to your TBR pile. *grin*

Scooper - Did I forget to say...OMG, yumm? Lugh does a wonderful job of creating his image!

Jenna - You are so very welcome, it was well deserved. There were so many surprises between the covers that once I started it, I couldn't set it down. Thanks so much for stopping by. :)

What a job she has, huh? Then she's possessed by a hunky demon all her own. :)
