Review: Demon's Triad by Anna J. Evans and December Quinn

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
What's a witch to do when her coven has been cursed with a celibacy spell?

Break it. By any means necessary. Aleeza dips into gray magic to scratch the itch that's been driving her crazy. She never dreams deviating from the "white magic only" policy of her coven will land her in the middle of a serial-murder investigation...or in the arms of two magnetic men.

Ferrin and Dorand plan to find their woman's murderers and make them pay -- with their lives. But when a spell to communicate with her spirit awakens a forbidden lust, their quest to catch a killer becomes even deadlier. A legacy of demonic evil two thousand years in the making is about to begin. One misstep and innocent passion becomes tainted desire, and three true lovers...a demon's triad.
My Thoughts: Oh, this book is Naughty with a capital N. I guess that's what happens when a sexually frustrated witch breaks her celibacy and tangles up with two hot men while investigating gruesome murders.  Sex.  Lots and lots of sex.  I'm not complaining AT ALL, mind you.  I'm just pointing out that years of enforced celibacy are bad.  For everyone.

For those that don't know, December Quinn is the delightful and fabulous Stacia Kane (Downside Ghosts, Megan Chase).  I loved her world-building in the Downside Ghosts series and quite frankly she can write some steamy scenes that pack a punch (Chess and Terrible, anyone?).  This is not for the faint of heart or prudish.  Stuff happens.  Sometimes it's bad.  Demons, apparently, don't like to make sweet love but rather bloody, gouging love that leaves them limping afterward.  Yes, I did enjoy reading it it, thank you for asking.

All in all, it was a sexy way to spend a few hours.  Ferrin and Dorand were enjoyable characters and I always appreciate a girl who gets caught with her pants down in public.  In a literary sense, mind you.
