In service to His Majesty, one must be prepared for Hell.
To survive as a scullery maid requires hard work, discipline, and a stiff upper lip. To survive as a Demon Hunter is something else entirely. Elizabeth Smythe learned this after she was captured by Demons and rescued by Hunters. Now a Hunter herself, Elizabeth’s first task in this new and strange world is to aid the recently wounded Reece Foxjohn, and get him back into Demon-slaying shape. . .
Reece Foxjohn is used to defying convention. He enraged his family by becoming a Demon Hunter, and prefers eviscerating demons to mixing with society. He is a man who doesn’t hesitate when he knows what he wants, and what he wants is Miss Elizabeth Smythe. To watch her behead the progeny of Evil is to behold a thing of beauty—one he must claim for his at all costs. .

There are multiple storylines that are threaded through the pages. One pertains to Elizabeth in the aftermath of her capture and ritualistic treatment at the hands of the Demons. Even after being rescued by the Hunters, and becoming one herself, she is still in the sights of the Demon Master. This complicates the rehabilitation of Reece, but only in the respect that he's not wholly focused on getting better and stronger; he's now trying to figure out the puzzle that is Elizabeth and the Master.
While rehabilitating and working on the link between Elizabeth and the Master, Reece has also gone and fallen head first in love with his strong willed and determined teacher. The relationship between Reece and Elizabeth is very much a rollercoaster; one that could come full circle and become a relationship or one that could break down at the very top of the highest peak, never to make it to the end of the tracks.
Plus, not only is the Master targeting Elizabeth, he's also picking off the other women who were abducted with Elizabeth, one-by-one. There is plenty of action in Betrayal - and not just battling demons and protecting women from the Master. **There are adult scenes between the pages that cause a change in the tide - and the Master is growing desperate....
I was swept away by the story told in Betrayal. The characters were well-crafted, multidimensional, and written with feeling. The world building was spectacular and I felt like I was in the story with Elizabeth and Reece. Betrayal is a fresh take on paranormal historical romance and I enjoyed every second. I'm excited to see what goes on in the next book.
