Meet Arcadia Bell: bartender, renegade magician, fugitive from the law. . . . Being the spawn of two infamous occultists (and alleged murderers) isn’t easy, but freewheeling magician Arcadia “Cady” Bell knows how to make the best of a crummy situation. After hiding out for seven years, she’s carved an incognito niche for herself slinging drinks at the demon-friendly Tambuku Tiki Lounge. But she receives an ultimatum when unexpected surveillance footage of her notorious parents surfaces: either prove their innocence or surrender herself. Unfortunately, the only witness to the crimes was an elusive Æthyric demon, and Cady has no idea how to find it. She teams up with Lon Butler, an enigmatic demonologist with a special talent for sexual spells and an arcane library of priceless stolen grimoires. Their research soon escalates into a storm of conflict involving missing police evidence, the decadent Hellfire Club, a ruthless bounty hunter, and a powerful occult society that operates way outside the law. If Cady can’t clear her family name soon, she’ll be forced to sacrifice her own life . . . and no amount of running will save her this time.

This book was featured in the deals section of the DA and I love UF and wanted something new so I caved. This is the first book in the series and as far as I can see the series are complete with four (or was it five ?) books and from what I read it ended on the strong note. I really liked it - n...
Kindling the Moon begins when Arcadia's parents have been spotting out of hiding after seven years of being hidden. She knows that she only has a certain amount of time in order to prove their innocence or give her life to make up for the murders that were done so long ago. And along the way she mee...
I think this book is amazing and I'm glad I decided on reading it. Arcadia was a very nice character and I think likable. Lon was a pleasure to read about and his transmutated state is very interesting, not to mention his son, Jupe - Now he was a delight and the way his character was written felt v...
I was surprised that I liked this so much. I think it was the fact that the romance took up a good 50% or so of the book, the other 50% being the hunt for the demon that Cady believed killed the three people her parents had been accused of killing. I still haven't decided if Lon is attractive (wav...
