Amazon Summary:
Colt Jackson has gotten his name on many a wanted poster with success in the family business: hunting supernaturals across the frontier. Lately, though, there's a sulphur stink in the wind and the Darkin population is exploding. A rift in the worlds is appearing. To close it, Colt will have to do the unthinkable and work with a demon to pass arcane boundaries no human alone can cross. Except when he summons his demon, he doesn't get some horned monstrosity: he gets a curvy redheaded succubus named Lilly, who's willing to make a bargain to become human again. He also gets Lilly's secret expertise on the machinations on the dark side of the rift. And her charm and cleverness help to get them out of what his silver-loaded pistol and mechanical horse can't. Of course, when all hell breaks loose, he might have to sacrifice his soul. But what's adventure without a little risk?

I have been a fan of Theresa Meyer's books since I read The Truth About Vampires so I knew when this book came on tour I knew I had to sign up. Even though I had never read any steampunk books and I had been wanting to for a long time. This was my opportunity and I jumped at the chance.

Not only did I find another genre that I could love but Theresa didn't disappoint with this book either. First I love the unique names of Colt, Remington and Winchester. Also loved the fact its set back in the 1800's even though like I said this is my first steampunk book so wrapping my head around the fact of the unique machinery back then was odd for me but I did enjoy it.

Colt and Lilly couldn't be a more of a mismatched pair but one that you could and find yourself rooting for. This book is filled with Demons, Vampires, Shapeshifters and much more. Let me just say if Remington's and Winchester's book is like this I can't wait til 2012. I will definitely be ordering those two.

So if you love steampunk mixed with romance as well as paranormal this book for you. If you haven't read anything by Theresa Meyers I strongly urge you give her a try too.
