When Demons threaten Regency London, only a Lady can stop them.
Lillian Dellacourt is beautiful, refined and absolutely lethal. She’s also the most feared and merciless demon hunter in The Company. She’s come a long way from the penniless seamstress’s daughter sold to the highest bidder, and it wasn’t by trusting a man, let alone an exiled Marquis with more on his mind than slaying the hellspawn . . .
For Dorian Lambert, Marquis de Montalembert, being sent to keep track of Lillian is no mean task. He’s wanted the fiery vixen since he first heard of her five years ago. But wooing the lady while fighting the demon uprising is no easy feat, especially when the lady’s tongue is as sharp as the Japanese sai blades she favors for eviscerating the spawn of hell.
These two will have to learn to trust each other fast, because the demon master is back, and he’s planning to turn Edinburgh into a living hell…
Deception by A.S. Fenichel was an excellent novel. It was packed full of action, steamy romance, and of course, demons! I loved the characters every bit as much as I loved the plot. (This is the second of the series; however, it can be read as a standalone, which is how I read it.) I’m a sucker for a strong female character, and Lillian is a badass woman. The kind you definitely want to have with you if you’re in a fight with demons. I adored her from the very beginning, but I loved watching her grow even more. Dorian was a fantastic character as well. He’s secure enough in himself that he supports Lillian’s independence and her non-ladylike (for the time period) behavior. He’s the kind of man who’s happy to have a woman at his side that can kick demon butt with him, and he’s also a sweet man who cares deeply about those he loves. The other characters in the book were just as much fun to read as Lillian and Dorian. There was a lot of demon killing and plenty of suspense and action to keep me riveted. The mix of fantasy, romance, and history is a winning combination, and I highly recommend reading this book.
