Caught between the human world and the demon one, Tiny, part time bouncer at Moonlight & Magic, lives by his own rules. Mainly these rules revolve around keeping his head down and making sure none of his kind find out where he is… because Tiny’s on the demon most wanted list. Not because he’s done anything but because of who he is.
Prince Seren Di Lakai Telosa to be exact, heir apparent to the Demon throne. And a hunted man. If his father’s men find him, he’ll be dragged back to court to die of boredom. For the last three hundred years they’ve been grooming him to take over from dear old daddy. The only trouble is – the stubborn old git could last at least another millennia.
So what’s a Demon Prince to do? Get a job at Moonlight & Magic of course and keep his head down. Unfortunately Tiny was never good at avoiding trouble and when delicate Vampiress Cassia storms into his life, Tiny finds himself tempted to break more than his personal rules…
Demonkind and the undead don’t mix well, or rather, they mix too well, with explosive results.

Whipped Cream Reviews – 4 1/2 Cherries!!
“Deception and Desire is a delightfully wicked story…I loved the dark and gritty atmosphere, as well as the elements of magic. Warm-blooded doesn’t even come close to the heat he (Tiny) exudes, and you’ll keep coming back for more even as your fingertips blister. Cassia isn’t some docile or sweet maiden that needs to be saved. This is a story you’ll enjoy in one sitting, and you’ll have a helluva good time in the process! Be sure to put Deception and Desire on your TBR list.” By Fern, Reviewer for Whipped Cream.
Bookwenches – Rating 4
“…is sexy and frequently amusing with just a touch of a dark undertone. Ms. Carter writes bad boys oh, so well, and Tiny – who is anything but small – is the perfect example. The love scenes between these two characters are intensely sexy as well as playful. A little role-play with bondage and dominance seems fitting for a demon and a vampire, and the fact that Tiny’s hot button is being dominated by his mate is both surprising and humorous.
Deception & Desire is a quick read, but Ms. Carter does a good job of developing the characters and telling a well-rounded story given the brevity of the tale. I will definitely look forward to whatever Moonlight & Magic has for us next.” Bobby, reviewer for Bookwenches

“…Ms. Carter has a knack for creating sex-on-a-stick paranormal bad boys you can’t help but love… I love her take on the supernatural and the grittier undertones she usually adds into the atmosphere. This tale did not disappoint as she delivers prose on the darker side laced with humor and raw passion.” By Romance Junkies Reviewer: Pamela Denise
