Demon Can't Help ItPaperback - 2009
Practical Josephine "Jo" Burke has no patience for the paranormal--even if she's been having some strange visions lately. But if she is losing her mind, at least it would explain her new attraction to her co-worker, the least suitable man she could ever fall for. . .
Maksim Kostova has no idea why he's so drawn to feisty mortal Jo, but he does know how she feels about the supernatural. Forget about her accepting him for what he really is, she'd never even believe him in the first place. Or would she? When Jo confesses to him that she's been seeing visions of a dead girl, it seems anything's possible. . .

SummaryAdd a Summary
We met the selfish sensual demon Maksim in the last book in Love's New Orleans paranormal romance series (Any Way You Want It, I Want You To Want Me) - Maksim was playing boy toy to Ren and Vittorio's psychotic mother while trying to find his missing sister. Maksim is still hunting for his sister, but he gets a bit distracted from his search when Jo (friend to former leading ladies Erika and Maggie) relocates to New Orleans. Maksim is intrigued by Jo because, unlike all other living breathing human females, Jo completely ignores him. The bruises to his ego fuel Maksim's pursuit of Jo, but his attraction to her takes on a life of his own and soon he's not acting very demonish at all. And though Maksim's positive a demon can't fall in love, it isn't long before he's doing a pretty good imitation.
Jo is a bit irritating and angsty in the first few chapters with her fear that, since she is 'seeing' people who are not there, she is going nuts and her constant mental talk about not thinking about the consequences of the unfortunate affair that caused her to relocate from D.C gets a bit old. But once her 'secret' is out in the open she improves as a character, ends up being worthy of Maksim's love, and ultimately ends up dealing with Maksim's secret in a suprisingly mature way.
