The pain will come later.

After a magical artist tattoos an intriguing demon on her skin, Madison meets a gorgeous stranger with an alarming reputation and a fiercely sexy winged creature with an attitude. She senses they are one and the same. Despite the danger surrounding them, she's drawn to them by an inexplicable force.

Half-human and half-demon, Brody has spent his life fighting against his evil birthright. Despite the hatred of the townsfolk, he uses his supernatural powers to defend them from his foul bloodline.

Neither Madison nor Brody can fight their lust or deny their love, but hell is out to get him. When everyone close to him, especially his destined mate, is targeted by eight generations of Blazewood demons, the only way to fight evil is with evil.

Madison was used to being a loner. She liked her space and alone time, particularly when it came to relationships. But everyone gets a little lonely at times, and she was no exception. She’d heard about a tattoo artist in New England, one who supposedly worked magic with her craft. It’s said that she could mark you with your destined mate. Not sure if she believed all that or not, Madison decided a vacation in New Hampshire along with a stop at the crazy tattoo lady was just what she needed to break up the monotony of her life.

Brody’s family held a dark secret, one passed down from generation to generation. Despite the inevitable fall of all his male ancestors into the evil that plagued his lineage, he was determined to be different. Brody kept to himself, locked away in his seemingly impenetrable fortress in the mountains, only make quick trips into town to replenish his needs. The last thing he expects on one of his routine errand is to run into a woman who will completely uproot his life and endanger his soul, in more ways than one.

Wild Woods was a fun read. Madison and Brody are easy to get to know and love. Ms. Jefferson is a hoot and had me laughing several times throughout the book. The author does a wonderful job of changing both Brody and Madison’s lives in a manner that will keep you engrossed and on edge. Secondary characters add excellent detail and drama to the plot, without making it too “crowded” feeling. The magic tattoo was a neat idea and a refreshing change to the typical paranormal tale. There were a few minor editing issues but they weren’t too distracting. Ms. Hill handles grammar, punctuation, and point-of-view wonderfully. Overall, I had no complaints with the story and am glad I had the opportunity to read it.

If you like dark heros, then Brody Blazewood is one demon you don’t want to miss! Grab a copy of Wild Woods by Kate Hill, it’s a sexy hot story that will make you laugh, turn you on, and touch your heart.
