Ashlee Bennett has her priorities straight. Fighting demons is at the top of the list until she meets her sexy neighbor, Luke Byrne. Even though he is human, she can't stop dreaming about his buff body and sexy grin, until her dreams turn to nightmares.

Her world is turned upside down when Luke follows her one night but instead of being afraid, he is only more determined to stand beside her and fight. Ashlee knows she needs to keep her distance from Luke, not just to protect her virginity but her heart as well. But Luke may be the only one who can save her from the night, and her dreams.

Ashlee Bennett is a nurse by day and a demon slayer by night. After losing her parents and her mentor, she decides to leave relocate to Liverpool, England and start a new life. One night, after one of her demon slaying sessions, she meets her extremely attractive neighbor, Luke Byrne. She’s immediately attracted to him and doesn’t know why because he’s only human. As a demon slayer she must mate with another slayer in order to increase her strength and survive past the age of thirty. Oh, and she also has to remain a virgin until she meets her slayer mate.

Ashlee starts having vivid erotic dreams of Luke shortly after meeting him. Around this same time she learns that her life is in danger. Some unknown supernatural creature is after her soul. With Luke’s help she tries to find out what it is.

I really liked Ashlee’s commitment towards ridding the world of evil demons. She took her job very seriously and wasn’t going to let her attraction towards Luke get in the way of her goals. The sexual tension between the two was great and Ashlee’s steamy erotic dreams brought the sexy without compromising her precious virginity. My one gripe with this story was that Ashlee sure did have a lot of orgasms for someone who was a virgin. Now I don’t know if this gripe is born out of jealousy or my disbelief that anyone can come so fast and so often. Needless to say there are several wet panty episodes in the story. But I did enjoy watching their relationship develop. I also liked Ashlee’s new mentor, Terry. He offered some comic relief in the story plus he owns a fun little sex shop and gives Ashlee free toys. I was kept in suspense  throughout the novel trying to figure out what creature was after Ashlee. There’s also some question as to what Luke’s real role is in her life. Is he really only human? 

I am looking forward to reading more about Ashlee’s demon slaying adventures and her hot new romance with Luke. Lori Toland’s writing style was fun and flowed well. I think Soul Seduction is a great start to a captivating new series. This was a great read and will appeal to the paranormal, urban fantasy junkies.
