About The Demon’s Wife: Claire McMullen, A thirty-something single woman in Portland, Maine, is perfectly normal and ordinary—except for her long, curly, flaming red hair. On the prowl for her Mr. Right—or at least Mr. Right Now—Claire’s life changes on the fateful evening she meets Samael. Romance blooms with the tall, handsome and wealthy Samael …until he admits to Claire that he is actually a demon. But to Samael’s surprise, he’s fallen as head-over-heels in love as Claire has. Now, he must stand up to the forces of evil and reclaim his angelic nature. But can Claire trust the love of a demon?
