Have you ever read a book and when you get to the end think, "what? It's over already? I need more!" Awaken the Demon was that book for me today. Missy Green has stared death in the face, in the form of her fianc‚, Ronald. When she flees, she finds a bus full of people called the Starr Gazers. They had been personally invited to Draco Starr's palatial home, in order to study the stars. Draco, for his part, is auditioning humans to see if one of the females is his mate. Quite by accident, Missy finds out that she is part demon and has powers that she can't even begin to imagine. Of course, she doesn't take the news well; but eventually, she comes to grips with her new reality. The best part of the book was watching the suave, debonair Draco fumble a bit with how to deal with his woman. For all intents and purposes, Missy is his first relationship and he doesn't have all the answers, which was awesome. I am definitely looking forward to the next book.
Abused for years by a sadistic fiancé, Missy Green has finally had enough. Running away is her only recourse. Wanting a new life, she takes refuge with a group known as the Stargazers. Taken in by the illustrious Draco Starr, Missy is elated to finally find peace. Yet, something doesn’t seem right about her host.
Born in the pits of hell, Draco Starr was once a fearsome Demon. For centuries, he collected soul s for Satan. Having done his time, Draco sets out to start a new life. Even with more wealth and prestige than anyone could ever want, something is missing in his life.
Missy is about to have her world turned upside down. Discovering Draco is a demon is terrifying enough, but finding out she too is a demon is more than she can handle.
Can Missy deal with her new life, and the affection she is beginning to feel for Draco, or will her past come back to haunt her?
