The world of the demons has been the only home the heroine has ever known. Favored by the leader of a demonic faction, she has a complex relationship with the man who is truly her master and owner. A man who mind raped her for years, changing her DNA and evolving her powers into something beyond recognition. But in a strange way he was like a father to her, a protector and a provider. Now the other faction has risen up and in a bid to save a immense power within him, the demon has infused that weapon within her and pushed her through the gateway and back onto her native Earth. Lost and confused in a strange land- homesick for the life she knew and hunted by the enemy who want to kill her and steal the power within her, the heroine fights daily for her life. She's a first met with scorn from the humans who think her a vagrant. She's imprisoned in a psych hospital after talking about demons chasing her. But finally, the elemental witches she's been seeking find her and break her out. The hero is one of the witches charged with protecting her. A widower who's mask of happiness and playboy personality hides his true grief and guilt from the world, the hero is frightened to be feeling what he starts to feel for the petite woman raised by demons. He desires her yes. Fire and air are very compatible and always seem drawn to one another. But he knows it goes far deeper than that. She's not just a one time lay. He desires her like he desired his dead wife and that makes his uneasy and skittish around her. Trapped together as they run desperately from safe house to safe house trying to keep one step ahead of the demons chasing her, the hero and heroine neither the less feel compelled to one another and soon she becomes very important to him. But the stress of the chase is weighing heavily on her soul. She was not meant to carry such a powerful weapon despite all the improvements her demon master made to her genetic makeup but she can't remove it without killing herself in the process. And she can't use her magic without serious psychical consequences. And it seems that no matter how hard or far they run, the demons are always one step behind and she's guilt ridden over the deaths they leave in their wake. If only her demon master was alive, he could remove the owner from within her and she could live a normal life with the man she loves. But the faction leader is presumed dead and the heroine doesn't know how much longer she can hold out. I enjoyed this book. It was fast paced, action packed yet still dedicated a healthy portion to delving into both of the characters pasts and inner workings. The hero-depicted as a fun loving, ladies man in the previous books is actually a grieving widow who hides a mountain of sadness behind that smile. The heroine is tormented by how many people are hurt or killed because of her-because of what the demons want is inside of her. And she's lost in a new world alternating between grief over the death of her foster father and at the same time knowing she was slave, a possession and she's finally free now. It wasn't perfect though. I found the plot to be repetitive by the end with the characters finding a safe place for the night, screwing like bunnies and then fighting for their lives when the demons find them again. But overall it was an exciting read with compelling characters and well developed storyline. ( )

The third book continues the trend of reducing the hot and heavy sex found in this series in favor of a actual story line.
It's a bit bare of embellishment, being the story of how they ran to keep Claire safe from Tavan and Kai, but there is a good story going and I read the book in a couple of day.
This book continues to build on the Elemental Witches Universe as we learn a bit more about them, their history, what kinds of abilities they can have - all that kind of stuff woven into the main story line. ( )

This is my second favorite from this series. Claire kicked ass. I ( )

Slightly different plot, a bit more action. Claire kicked-ass but annoyed me a touch. These books could easily be read as stand alone novels, you don't have to have read the earlier books. ( )
