Pg. 69: Maureen Child's "More Than Fiends"

Today's feature at the Page 69 Test: Maureen Child's More Than Fiends.

About the book, from the publisher's website:

Cassidy Burke is finding it hard to believe that she's next in a long line of demon dusters — Burke women paired with centuries-old cleaning solution to shine windows and spot demons. Sure, her "Clean Sweep" maid service is taking off, but wiping out supernatural bad guys? Come on.

But Cassie's surprised by her sudden fighting instincts and fierce new strength ... both of which she's going to need. For one thing, her teenage daughter thinks her dad is dead, but in truth he just never knew about her ... and now he's moved back to town. And after many dateless years, men are finally lining up on Cassie's doorstep. Sadly, most of them aren't human.

Maureen Child, author of over seventy books, including some written under the pseudonyms Ann Carberry, Sarah Hart and Kathleen Kane, has "written historical romances set in the wild west, and paranormal romances. She's written Americana and even, once, a romance set in Victorian England, which she absolutely loved doing. Now, she writes Silhouette Desires and mainstream contemporary romances."
