Well I’ve been really busy keeping up with all the books I’ve got on my TBR pile to keep up-to-date with my reviews so today I have a special guest blogger Tara Nichols. She has guest blogged about her own books before and you can find the links to those on the right sidebar under Guest Blog. Tara has purchased an eBook by a new author to her Anastasia Rabiyah. She is going to be reviewing Rabiyah’s book Demon in the Basement below so enjoy!
I wasn’t sure what I was in for when I purchased a romance featuring a demon, but Anastasia Rabiyah convinced me demons could be sexy with her intriguing blurb.
Emme, the heroine of the story, is a strong, compassionate and mysterious woman. Having inherited her dead father’s house, she takes it upon herself to cleanse the house of its dark memories, along with the dirt her father left behind. But, it is more than just memories that reside in that house, Nazan, the demon Emme’s father imprisoned, lay suffering inside a ring of salt. Emme frees the demon and proceeds to show him the kindness her father never did, drawing closer to a creature she knew she should not desire.
Nazan struggles with his own desire, with his painful memories, and now, with an old enemy who has resurfaced and rekindled his interest in the residents of the house.
This is a meticulously plotted and well executed story. Each word fit together like a piece in a jig saw puzzle. It was smooth, it was sexy, and it was thoroughly entertaining. The story was tight, it flowed well, and it kept me entertained, turning pages with a hunger to read more. I loved her characters, believing every act, every thought to be possible. Overall, it was the most satisfying read I’ve had in a while.

Enter the basement’s forgotten darkness and reach for the light of redemption. Find love and passion in an unlikely mate. Dare to look beyond what you see.
Emme has inherited her estranged father’s estate and vows to clean out all the evil he left behind. In the corner of the basement, she discovers one of the greatest of his forbidden treasures: Nazan, a demon that’s been trapped there since she fled the house as a teen. The broken demon is circled by salt, emaciated and bears scars left by years of cruelty and torture.
A caring woman who believes all creatures have their place in the world, Emme undertakes the arduous task to mend the wounds done to his soul, mind and body—to return him to his rightful state and place. Despite her unsettling attraction to him, a fiery heat occurring every time he touches her, she is determined to set the demon free.
But he has other plans.
