Publishers Weekly, 2009-12-07 Adorably naOve and introverted half-demon author Ellina Kostova finds herself sharing her New Orleans home with vampire-werewolf bodyguard Jude Anthony, hired by her brother to protect her from a mysterious stalker. Mutual attraction blossoms, but arousal causes Ellina to sprout embarrassing horns and shiny red scales, while Jude is afraid to mix business and pleasure. Love (the Young Brothers series) sadly neglects the potential in the setting, where demons, vampires, and werewolves mix, humans can become supernaturals, and an immortal has mourned his family for 2,000 years. With a hunky bodyguard as a main character, readers will be disappointed by the lack of good supernatural fights, and the mystery also falls flat. The romance is cute and well paced and the principals are warm and engaging, but that can't compensate for the glaring flaws. (Feb.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
