Demon Chained by Erica Hayes





A dark, delicious fantasy romance from the author of Shadowfae.
Jewel is a djinni of the lamp, an enchanted slave, bound to her owner by dark magical cravings she can't resist. She burns for freedom, and when her lamp is stolen—by Tam, a hot and dirty bad-boy thief—she vows to be rid of her new master at any cost. Even as she plots Tam's demise, the lamp's dark fascination makes her long to claim him as her own.
But the last thing Tam wants is a spellbound djinni who can't say 'no'. Cursed by a demon to suffer living death, he's tormented by undead longing for pain, pleasure, any sensation he can get. To have this exquisite, besotted Jewel at his bidding is pure torture . . . because Tam refuses to succumb to her magical allure.
Not when he knows she can't truly be attracted to an ever-dying freak. And not when he’s already on a mission from his cruel demon master: capture and deliver one djinni . . .
What girl doesn’t want the bad boy in town to notice her and how aggravating is it to be ignored or pushed away by that same bad boy? Enter Jewel bound to a bad boy who doesn’t want anything to do with her...
I loved this book, it is gritty, lol okay disgusting in some of its graphic details of Tam’s zombieness---yeah I just made that word up. I loved Jewel’s love of life, her need to grasp every experience simply for the sensation of the living the experience.
Before I finished the third chapter I told a friend she had to read it. I loved the humor, the painful need to belong experienced by Tam’s sidekick the pain and grieving of a father for his lost child. This book has it all and does it all so well!
