(The Sex Demon Trilogy, Book 2)

Emmerie Winter has only been married a few months, but depression has made her a fragile stranger in the arms of her husband. She knows she should love him, but she doesn't, and no matter how hard she tries, she can't convince her heart otherwise.

When a sex demon with a boyish grin and a sinful body arrives in town, Emmerie's world is turned upside down. His intense passion for life sends her depression into hiding, but her feelings for the sinful male could get her in deep trouble.

A sex demon needs climax to survive, but that's never been a problem for Reza Aniron as women seem to be unable to resist his charms…all except for one, a timid, blonde angel who treats him with complete indifference. But in her eyes he can see a fire that's just waiting to be released. And he always did love a challenge.

Content Warning: strong language, extramarital relations, and graphic erotic situations


The relationship between Emmerie and Lennox is both sweet and heartbreaking.  Emmerie is a genuinely good soul trapped by depression fueled by the guilt of not truly loving her husband as a wife should.  Lennox loves his wife and would do anything to earn her adoration in return.  Having known each other since childhood and being betrothed to one another makes their union ideal in the eyes of the community but to Emmerie, just creates endless torment.

Reza is everything a sex demon is notorious for.  He is exotic and charming.  His mischievous grin paired with his sinful confidence make him a magnet to women throughout the world and an unwelcome visitor in this small village.  Afraid his presence will stir the women of the town into a frenzy, the men are constantly on their guard around him.  Still, he continues to swoon and satisfy ladies without hesitation; that is, until he met a forbidden angel.

The relationship between Reza and Emmerie is complex and full of emotional conflict.  His desire for her is undeniable and her skepticism of his sincerity is completely understandable.  Their interactions are passionate and heated and watching Emmerie blossom from an empty shell of a human to a being full of life and zest is wonderful.

Claiming of a Sex Demon is an incredibly sweet story with a satisfying happily ever after.  The author paints a clear portrait of the characters and the realm in which they dwell, making the story easy to become lost in.  The conflict between characters as well as the emotional torment creates a perfect balance to the tenderness throughout.  This book is definitely a book to keep and invokes interest to read the remaining books of the series.
