Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Secrets of the Demon by Diana Rowland

Secrets of the Demon (Kara Gillian, Book 3)Homicide detective Kara Gillian has a special talent: she can sense the "arcane" in our world, and there's quite a bit of it, even in Beaulac, Louisiana. She's also a summoner of demons, and works on a task force that deals with supernatural crimes. Her partners are attractive and smart FBI agents, but they're not summoners, and they're not telling Kara why they are on this special force with her.

TO make things worse, Kara has pledged herself to one of the most powerful of demons-a Demon Lord-who helped save her partner's life, but now expects things in return. Meanwhile, she's trying to solve a string of murders that are somehow tied together by money, sex, rock music and...mud. But how can she concentrate on the case when she's not even sure who-or what-her partners are? (Courtesy of Amazon)

I am a Were/Shifter or Demon/Angel girl at heart.  I love the dark art of consorting with the demons – so Diana Rowland grabbed my attention with this series when I first saw Blood of the Demon.  Secrets of the Demon is 3rd in the series.

Mixing police with paranormal is a win for me.  Rowland does an exquisite job of giving you the hard facts of the mystery and the “CSI” investigation while spinning in her own demon summoner.  Who wouldn’t want a Demon to summon for a little naughty fun?  Add an immense sexual tension with your FBI coworker and you can’t have better success.  The most exciting thing is - the book has plot to its seduction.  Who is after Kara?  How much deeper does she need to go in the demon world?  And what does a human FBI agent have to do with demons again?  There's so much action in her books, it's great for anyone - in this book Rowland gave us so much to think about...

Keeping you coming back for more, Rowland does it again. I NEED BOOK 4 

If you haven’t set your To Be Read list to include Rowland, do so now.  Mystery, Intrigue, and Hotness – easily a good read.  

4 Slices 


  1. Great review! I love this series! Was a little skeptical at first but then read so many great reviews! It wasn't long before I became addicted to it!

  2. I also had, for the first time, a few issues with Kara herself. The just friends/more than friends angst between her and Ryan really got on my nerves in this book, and there was a lot of it - or it felt that way, anyway. It is the one issue that really has the ability to turn Kara into a petulant sixth grader who lacks appeal.

  3. i know portugal -- she and ryan have a really weird relationship. drives ya crazy.
