The Appeal of Evil by Pembroke Sinclair Book Spotlight

Katie wants to invest her heart and soul in love, but she may lose both to Hell.

Katie, a senior in high school, is torn between loving the “good” guy, her childhood friend Wes who makes promises he doesn't keep and abandons her when she needs him the most, and the “bad” guy, the new kid at school Josh who is also a real demon from Hell. Katie wants someone who pays attention to her and puts her first, but what is she willing to give up to find him?


Katie has had a crush on Wes since she was six years old.  Now a senior in high school, Katie has had enough of the yo-yo of smitten rejections to last a lifetime.  Every time she thinks Wes is interested, he rejects her leaving he feeling confused, hurt, and like it is all a game and she is the pawn.  When Wes begins his usual snare of acting interested, Katie is the one rejecting but this time she has someone who is willing fill the void.   The problem is Katie doesn't realize that Wes is trying to protect her and the boy she has let captivate her is a demon who wants to use her as the pawn to get Wes.

Now Katie is torn between good and evil.  Wes who has his reasons for trying to protect he but always keeping her at a distance and  Josh who exudes sinful and although she knows he is dangerous, he makes her feel desired.

I sure hope there is a sequel.  I thought this was highly entertaining and I have to say it kept me on my toes.  I was surprised by some of the twists in the plot.  If your looking for bad boys, paranormal,  and a book you cannot put down. This one is for you.

Pembroke Sinclair is a literary jack of all trades, playing her hand at multiple genres.  She has written an eclectic mix of fiction ranging from horror to sci-fi and even some westerns.  Born in Rock Springs, Wyoming--the home of 56 nationalities--it is no wonder Pembroke ended up so creatively diverse.  Her fascination with the notions of good and evil, demons and angels, and how the lines blur have inspired her writing.  Pembroke lives in Laramie, Wyoming, with her husband, two spirited boys, a black lab named Ryder, and a rescue kitty named Alia, who happens to be the sweetest, most adorable kitty in the world! She cannot say no to dessert, orange soda, or cinnamon. She loves rats and tatts and rock and roll and wants to be an alien queen when she grows up.
