A Wicked Curse... A Deadly Secret... An Approaching Evil... A Forbidden Love...
Some girls share clothes. Some girls share a bedroom. Seventeen-year-old Liora Greyson has to share, too. Only she shares her body--with a demon.
Liora just wants to survive her senior year with her dark secret intact. But the walls she's built to keep people away come tumbling down once she meets the sexy and mysterious Kieron, and he lights her world on fire. She can't let him know she transforms into a demon named "Lucky" at nightfall--a demon with an entirely separate personality who passes out Torment, Justice, and Revenge like Halloween candy.
Turns out Kieron is the one who should be afraid once Lucky discovers his true identity and motivations. Liora wants to love him, but Lucky thinks he's public enemy #1.
Fighting your demons is one thing. Having one that fights back, messes with your guy, and leaves you with nasty hangovers can be pure hell.
Being bad has never been so good...

The sleepy town of Tuonela, Wisconsin, is known for one thing: the killer who stalked its streets one hundred years ago, drinking the blood of his victims. And when the drained corpse of a young girl is found, the citizens fear their past has risen from the grave -- and point their fingers at one man.... Evan Stroud can never see the light of day. The prisoner of a strange and terrible disease, he lives in tragic solitude, taunted for being a "vampire" --until the son he never knew he had shows up in Tuonela, and is drawn into its depraved, vampire-obsessed underworld. Then Evan must rely on his childhood friend, coroner Rachel Burton, for help. But the evil that they face is powerful and elusive -- and about to take them to the very edge of madness.
