While her father is away on business, sixteen-year-old Mary Davenport feels confined and alone, despite her privileged life at the family's mansion. As the day of Mary's debutante ball draws near, the servants are conflicted by instructions from Mary's mother to starve her until she fits into a gown that was made too small.

BLOG TOUR: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde


Welcome to the Official Blog Tour for Deborah Wilde's The Unlikeable Demon Hunter, the first book in the Nava Katz series! This tour consists of various posts on all participating blogs! On our tour stop today, we have a sneak peek into the book with an exciting excerpt! Plus, we celebrate this release with a tour-wide giveaway! So... Follow the tour (tour schedule is at the end of this post)! Check it out and grab your copy today!

Genre:
New Adult
Urban Fantasy
Paranormal Romance
Series:
Nava Katz, #1
Publish Date:
April 18, 2017
Publisher:
Te Da Media

Synopsis:
Bridesmaids meets Buffy with a dash of the seven deadly sins.

The age-old story of what happens when a foul-mouthed, romance impaired heroine with no edit button and a predilection for hot sex is faced with her worst nightmare–a purpose.

Ari Katz is intelligent, driven, and will make an excellent demon hunter once initiated into the Brotherhood of David. However, this book is about his twin Nava: a smart-ass, self-cultivated hot mess, who is thrilled her brother is stuck with all the chosen one crap.

When Nava half-drunkenly interrupts Ari’s induction ceremony, she expects to be chastised. What she doesn’t expect is to take her brother’s place among the–until now–all-male demon hunters. Even worse? Her infuriating leader is former rock star Rohan Mitra.

Too bad Rohan’s exactly what Nava’s always wanted: the perfect bad boy fling with no strings attached, because he may also be the one to bring down her carefully erected emotional shields. That’s as dangerous as all the evil fiends vying for the bragging rights of killing the only female ever chosen for Demon Club.

Odds of survival: eh.

Odds of having a very good time with Rohan before she bites it: much better.


     

*Excerpt*
I veered into the backyard to snap a few stalks off Mom’s aloe plant to apply to my still-throbbing chest. It was a gorgeous night, made more so by the fact that I was still alive. I raised my face up to the stars, calmed by their distant pulsing. All was peaceful and still until my shoulder blades tensed like someone was behind me.
The maybe-demon from Josh’s alleyway was back, having stopped about five feet away and triggering the motion sensor. What with Josh’s sister trying to kill me and all, he’d fallen off my radar.
Aloe gooped over my fingers, having clutched the frond hard enough to break it, and my terror and an intense curiosity resurfaced. There was no denying his compelling presence. Plus, he had those long lashes that were my Kryptonite. I opened my mouth to scream. Or drool.
He held a finger up to his delectable lips to keep me quiet, circling me with lazy strides, checking me out.
I’d have been offended by the blatant appraisal except under his intense scrutiny, my clit, Cuntessa de Spluge lit up with an electric zing. I found myself stroking the aloe stalks in an obscene manner. Even knowing he couldn’t see my blush since I was in the shadows didn’t kill my utter mortification at jerking off plant life in not-so-subtextual yearning.
He stalked toward me, his leather jacket rustling with each step.
I held up a hand to stop him, the faintest electric crackle pulsing off my skin.
He didn’t stop, didn’t slow. In fact, he kept up his steady approach until his hand covered mine. My magic shocked us both at his touch. I gasped and shivered as pleasure, not pain, rumbled through me.
Hand still clasped in his, he stared at me suspiciously, instead of in fear, but had I wanted, I could have broken his hold. Not a demon, then? He fingered the thin silver necklace I wore with surprising gentleness, toying with the cute floral pendant dangling off it that read “I will kick you in the balls if I have to.”
“Should I be scared?” Given how he sounded like sex, sin, and salaciousness–the true definition of a triple threat–I decided that yes, he was most definitely a demon.
I met his mocking gaze, my rooted stance and beating heart placing me somewhere between morbid fascination and noping the fuck out at warp speed.

The epic tale of Sienna Preston continues in this second installment of the exhilarating Deception Game series.

Seventeen-year-old Sienna is no stranger to heartache and loss. But this time, it's different; someone―or something―has tampered with a loved one's memories, and she's determined to get answers.

The trail leads her to the glittering skyscrapers and modern luxuries of Rubex, the Capital of Pacifica, where she infiltrates the government's Agency for Intelligence and Genetics. But answers are not always easy to come by, especially when her own memories may have been altered. Luckily, Zane Ryder is there to help her put the pieces back together, his devotion and concern muddying the waters between friendship and something more.

When Sienna gets too close to uncovering dark Agency secrets, she's framed for the murder of a prominent government official, sending her on the run. Sienna's heart may be torn about who she loves, but none of that really matters anymore―because the only thing that awaits her now is a death sentence.

*Excerpt*
How do you know so much about motorcycles? Did your dad ride?

She laughs outright at my question. My dad on a motorcycle? No way. Dad was a mixture of leather, coffee, and books. Not oil, sweat, and grease.

After lying down on her back, she scoots up next to the bike, checking the rims and spokes to make sure theres no damage. It kind of became a hobby of mine after my dad died. Do you know the junkyard off Chantilly? Never mind, of course you dont. Anyway, I found Harley there when I was looking for some old furniture to decorate our trailer with.She looks up at me. We didnt always live in a trailer, you know.

I try to hide my surprise. I assumed the opposite. What happened?

After Dad died, Mom became sick. We couldnt afford to live in our house in the suburbs anymore, so we sold it and everything in it, and found the trailer on the outskirts of town. Thats when I dropped out of school and started taking on odd jobs.

She says it all with such a matter-of-fact tone, but I sense the truth. It was hard for her. It was more than any teenage girl should have to deal with. But shes too strong to admit it.
I dont know how you did it,I say.

She sits up, wiping her hands on her shorts. Unconsciously, I find my eyes shifting to her bare legs.

I didnt have a choice,she says. She rises to her feet, straddles the bike, and bounces up and down a little. I can only assume shes checking the chassis to make sure everything is working properly.

Anyway,she says. When I found Harley, I took her home, researched antique motorcycles, and fixed her up. Theres a shop near the Hollow that sells parts, so thats where I headed after I got my first paycheck.She pats her bike fondly. Never regretted it.

I watch as she turns the key and the engine roars to life, bringing a brilliant smile to her face. I want to tell her all the ways I think shes amazing, how shes unlike any girl Ive ever met, how I find her beautiful, resourceful, intelligent, and intriguing, but she doesnt want to hear those things. Not from me anyway.
