A powerful djinni, enslaved to her lamp. An undead thief, bound to a cruel demon's whim. A passion that will outlast death itself...

A dark, delicious urban fantasy romance from the author of

Jewel is a djinni of the lamp, an enchanted slave, bound to her owner by dark magical cravings she can't resist. She burns for freedom, and when her lamp is stolen—by Tam, a hot and dirty bad-boy thief—she vows to be rid of her new master at any cost. Even as she plots Tam's demise, the lamp's dark fascination makes her long to claim him as her own.

But the last thing Tam wants is a spellbound djinni who can't say 'no'. Cursed by a demon to suffer living death, he's tormented by undead longing for pain, pleasure, any sensation he can get. To have this exquisite, besotted Jewel at his bidding is pure torture... because Tam refuses to succumb to her magical allure.

Not when he knows she can't truly be attracted to an ever-dying freak. And not when he’s already on a mission from his cruel demon master: capture and deliver one djinni...

Warning: this novel contains a feisty magical heroine, a besotted fairy best friend and the hottest wise-ass dead-guy hero in town.
I loved the concept for Demon Chained--the whole genie in a bottle and dead guy story-line. Very interesting. The writing was incredibly descriptive. Actually too descriptive for my taste as it seemed like 90 percent of the story was description and there was very little dialogue, but it was very well written description. There was quite a bit of gory and downright gross imagery. The author convinced me that being dead is totally disgusting. Ha. Whereas the writing style wasn't for me, the writing itself was good, the story-line very creative and the author definitely has a talent for vivid description.
