Fledging guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares to enter Devil's Paradise nightclub on a mission—to retrieve the wayward Hollywood "It Boy" she's assigned to protect. But she's ambushed by the club's owner, arch demon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure-seeking humans. He won't release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…

After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy-sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries-old feelings. Now, their high-stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell…or a deliciously hot heaven.

Our Review [by LITERAL ADDICTION's Guest Reviewer - Carlyn McKechnie]:

Serena is a new Guardian Angel. She died while saving two children and attempting to save their mother as well. As a Guardian Angel, she is charged with saving the soul of Nick, a young and up-and-coming actor.

Nick was a slightly neglected child, and therefore loves his new found fame and fortune - attention he never received from his parents. He goes to Devil's Paradise where sinning is expected (and encouraged!), especially since it's owned by an Archdemon called Julian, whose job it is to deliver souls to hell, and whose specialty is corrupting people.

When Serena goes into the club to try and coax Nick away from the tempting influences, she meets Julian who is immediately enthralled by her. Julian decides that he would like to add Serena's soul to his collection...

This is a classic story of good and evil, but is written beautifully. Serena tries so hard to be a good Guardian, but she is out of her league when she goes up against Julian who has had centuries of experience in seduction. Her belief in `good' is put to the test, but she handles it well and you end up loving her for her faith.

I loved Julian for exactly the opposite reason though; I love his efforts to seduce Serena and the underhanded tactics he uses to get her to go along with his plans, but then again I am a big fan of a bad boy! The story flows very well and you can feel the struggle Serena has with her feelings for Julian. It is a great story about love and faith I'm hoping to see more stories from this world!

LITERAL ADDICTION Paranormal Book Club's Guest Reviewer gives Where Demons Fear to Tread 4 Skulls.

LITERAL ADDICTION recommends it for Urban Fantasy readers, Angel and Demon lovers, and Paranormal Romance addicts.

Serena St. Clair is a guardian angel whose latest assignment is the latest hot Hollywood actor. Serena now has to enter into a club by the name of Devil’s Paradise to rescue her assignee and keep him from harm. What she doesn’t count on is getting caught by the owner Julian Asher. Now she has to find a way to rescue her assignee, Nick and herself from the situation she suddenly finds herself in.

Julian Ascher is an arch demon that seems to have caught an angel for himself. Julian’s sole purpose is to tempt those that are seeking pleasure and corrupt the human that are determined to have that pleasure. Julian isn’t about to lose the latest soul he has a chance to corrupt without getting something out of it for himself. The only way he will let Nick go is if Serena accepts his dangerous proposition.

What Julian and Serena didn’t count on is the passion that flares between them. Julian is determined not to let any woman be his downfall, again but that was before he met Serena. Now as they play out a game of seduction the stakes are a lot higher than either of them counted on, Their passion with either lead them both to everlasting damnation or to a love the will last an eternity.

This story will be pulling on the heart strings of the reader. The reader will be pulled into this emotional story that will have them hating to put it down until the very last page. The characters are written so well that they will have the reader cheering them on and feeling what they are going through throughout the story. This one takes the classic story of good against evil, angel against demon and turns it on its ear. This is story that will have the reader eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

Stephanie Chong has created a fabulous new world where Angels and Demons rarely mix, but both have their purposes on Earth. When Serena St. Clair gets into a car accident she soon finds herself turned angel and sent on assignment to save a rockstar. What she does not expect is to be sent into the den of one of the most powerful Demons, while at the same time finding herself soon falling in love and about to fall herself if she is not careful.
Julian Ascher is exactly the demon to find himself one the opposite end of that Angel, finding himself falling for Serena while at the same time trying to keep her from his entire race.
The question soon leads to what can become of Angels and Demons, and who truly needs to be saved.
I loved the characters and their snarky and yet shy attitudes. Ascher was a great character and as he developed in the story I loved him more. Serena starts off the book young and innocent full of ideals, but soon finds out that the path to salvation is trickier and more muddied than clear, while she soon also finds her own strengths and uses them to front her own agenda.

Where Demons Fear to Tread is a great beginning to an upcoming series not to be missed.
