A Target "break-out" book!Kate Connor is your average, everyday mom with two kids, a husband, and one very big secret ... she used to be a Demon Hunter for a secret arm of the Vatican.

About the Author:

Julie Kenner (aka J. Kenner and J.K. Beck) is the New York Times, USA Today, Publishers Weekly, and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of over forty novels, novellas and short stories in a variety of genres. Praised by Publishers Weekly as an author with a “flair for dialogue and eccentric characterizations,” J.K. writes a range of stories including super sexy romances, paranormal romance, chick lit suspense and paranormal mommy lit. Her foray into the latter, Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner, is in development as a feature film with 1492 Pictures. Her most recent trilogy of erotic romances, The Stark Trilogy (as J. Kenner), reached as high as #2 on the New York Times list and is published in over twenty countries. J.K. lives in Central Texas, with her husband, two daughters, and several cats.

From AudioFile:

Kate Connor has given up her career as a demon hunter in order to live a regular life with her husband and child. But that doesn't stop one from seeking her out, crashing through the window and dying in her kitchen on the night when her husband brings eight men home for dinner. The fantastic nature of this plot requires a reader who is soft in voice and who believes every word that comes from her mouth. Laura Hicks gives a brash interpretation and does not catch her listener. She is not imagining the incidents as they happen, so we hear the story as farce and have no sympathy for Kate or her troubles.
