Kiss & Hell - Dakota Cassidy

Delaney Markham is a medium. The talking to dead people type, not her size. What do you do to make ends meet and support yourself (and your equally sensitive six dogs) when ghosts are constantly talking to you? You charge $800 for seances or that's the plan. At least it is until an unwanted, yet attractive, ghost starts to crash them.

The ghost in this case is actually a demon by the name of Clyde Atwell. A demon library clerk. He's been sent by the devil to make Delaney's life difficult. He would quit his assignment, even though he'd burn for eternity, but he seems to have fallen in love with Delaney. Add to that the fact that he's unsure how he wound up in Hell in the first place, and it soon becomes apparent that there's more to Clyde then meets the eye.

This is a fun summer read. Delaney is fun and funny. Despite the fact that with her "gift" she can't seem to have any kind of relationship. With the exception of her nice demon friend Marcella. A Spanish spitfire who will do anything to help Delaney out.

Dakota Cassidy is a master (mistress?) at laugh out loud funny. Right up there with MaryJanice Davidson, read this book in public at your own risk. If you don't mind people looking at you like you're insane, you'll be fine. Sharp and sarcastic the plot will sneak up on you. This book is recommended especially if you want a break from your Urban Fantasy always being so serious.

Kiss & Hell gets an Excellent. 3 1/2 out of 4 stars.
