Review: Come Hell or High Water

Come Hell or High Water is the 6th book in the Broken Heart, Oklahoma series by Michele Bardsley and a Signet Eclipse Paranormal Romance.

Book Blurb:

A Demon Who Can't Be Kilt!

Everybody makes mistakes, and my first one was named Connor, a heart-stealing Scottish hottie. I thought out night together was the beautiful beginning to a love story, which turned out to be my second mistake. I, Phoebe Allen, lifelong Broken Heart resident and vampire, am now mated to a half demon.

Connor needs me to retrieve the rest of an ancient talisman to stave off his vicious stepmother, an uberdemon named Lilith. Thank goodness my four-year-old son, Danny, is off at Disney Word with his human father. At least he is safe and far away from all this paranormal drama. Me? Not so much. I'll help Connor and his ragtag group of friends because it's the right thing to do - and not because I'm falling for any of his demon charm. Still, Connor's willing to do anything to protect me and prevent demons from storming into Broken Heart. My undead heart can't resist a bad boy with identity issues.

The Broken Heart, Oklahoma series is the ongoing story of eleven people in one small town who - accidentally, were killed - and then turned into vampires - to sorta make up for it. Come Hell or High Water is Phoebe's story.

Phoebe Allen is a direct descendant of one of the five families that founded Broken Heart. She has lived here all her life and is now the manager of the Old Sass Cafe. Phoebe is also a vampire from the Family Durga - this means she can call forth and banish demons, a skill that is very useful to the Consortium.

Connor is new to town and has been working at the Old Sass Cafe for about a month. He and Phoebe have flirted with one another off and on - but being a vampire, if Phoebe has sex with anyone - she is mated to them - bound for 100 years. That can put a pretty big crimp in anyone's social life. But Connor is a Scottish fairy - a Ghillie Dhu to be exact - and Connor says that the binding curse has no effect on the Ghillie Dhu.

And he wouldn't lie about anything like that, right?

I absolutely love this series. :) Come Hell or High Water is full of humor, intrigue, romance, a sexy alpha male and even a demon eating chihuahua hell hound. You can't get much better than that. :)

I give Come Hell or High Water 5 out of 5 stars and can't wait for the next installment - Cross Your Heart, due out in September.
