Blood of the DemonBook - 2010
Welcome to the world of Kara Gillian, a cop with a gift. Not only does she have the power of "othersight" to see what most people can't even imagine, but she's become the exclusive summoner of a demon lord. Or maybe it's the other way around. The fact is, with two troublesome cases on her docket and a handsome FBI agent under her skin, Kara needs the help of sexy, insatiable Lord Rhyzkahl more than he needs her. Because these two victims, linked by suspicious coincidence, haven't just been murdered. Something has eaten their souls.
It's a case with roots in the arcane, but whose evil has flowered among the rich, powerful, and corrupt in Beaulac, Louisiana. And as the killings continue, Kara soon realizes how much there's still to learn about demons, men, and things that kill in the night--and how little time she has to learn it.

the story picks up about a month after the end of the first book. Once again, Kara is faced with the challenge of solving a series of murders that have an arcane signature while piecing together how the victims were all connected. At the same time, Kara is still an emotional reck from the results of the first book. One of which is that she is looking for a way to restore her Aunt Tessa to life. To assist in this Kara summons Rhyzkahl, the Demon lord who is very interested in Kara Lord Rhyzkahl gives Kara the information she needs to help her aunt, but at the same time "asks" her to be become his summoner. To complicate matters even further, FBI agent Ryan Kristoff is back and although his intentions with Kara are unclear which also is causing Kara emotional grief, he makes it abundantly clear that he does not want her dealing with Lord Rhyzkahl. Interestingly, Kara finds out that all the demons seem to know Ryan, and they have a less than positive opinion of him. But in order to solve the murders that are occurring, put a stop to the murderer, and save her own life, Kara needs both help from Ryan and information from Rhyzkahl. Needless to say, this causes tension and sparks to fly between the three characters.
