Bestselling author Linda Wisdom, with 13 million category romances sold, is working to build her single title audience with the hottest new area of the romance category– sexy demon heroes.
Lovely witch Lili Carter takes a job at a paranormal hospital where patients have been disappearing. There she encounters Jared, a dangerously sexy demon on a mission that gets Lili into a world of trouble. Lili can't avoid Jared for long and soon they find themselves creating a whole new kind of magick...
A Demon Does It Better is the second book in Linda Wisdom's Demon series.
Lili is a 700 year old witch who has healing abilities. She decides to go back to work as a doctor at Crying Souls hospital when her friend Sera comes up missing while working there.
Jared is a demon who has been locked up in an asylum beneath the hospital by a doctor who says that he is very dangerous. He's been a "guest" in this prison cell for more then 100 years and has suffered through his share of abuse and degradation.
This book is wrapped up in a fun mystery and a heartwarming romance that kept me engaged and glued to my Kindle. The author has made a unique and magical world for her characters to live in. Add a little romance (Passionate and sexy yet tender and warm.) And some witty humor with a fun loving and snarky additude and you have quite an enjoyable and entertaining read.
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I’m a born and bred Californian, married, with a small zoo in the house. Pack leader o two white mini Schnauzers. I’ve been writing for 32 years, published for 31. I’ve written various sub-genres over the years, but paranormal is strong in my blood. Shows with my collection of witch Barbie dolls and other figurines I’ve collected over the years. I love it when friends let me use something from their lives in my books. But I always change the names to protect the guilty. Proof that I also have a very demented sense of humor.
Hm, probably all of it. So many changes over the years. My first book was published in 1980
and a lot has gone on since then. I’ve gone from using a small electric typewriter to a laptop and netbook. From writing an entire book and sending in a hard copy, that I’d have copied at a copy shop, to emailing the book.
LOL! More than one going on. A friend and I have contracted an erotic paranormal series that are sold as Kindle apps through http://www.coliloquy.com/. The first Great Escapes will be out soon. Plus I’m putting up the backlist books I own the rights to on http://www.joyridebooks.com/ and I’m finishing up a Jazz and Nick novella titled Hotel Hex that will be up soon along with Thea’s Book, Guns ‘N Hexes, coming out as an ebook in a few months. And that’s just the beginning!

I guess you’d say it was layer upon layer. I knew it would have Lili, Cleo came on board, I
created a hospital that was part gothic, part modern medicine, the magickal plane Inderman that has a bit of everything supernatural there.
Lili first ‘appeared’ in 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover. But only as wallmail, witch’s version of email. I’d been fooling with ideas for her book for probably the past three years.
I must ask, If you could pick one actor to portray Jared on the big screen, who
would it be and why?
Ooh, Sam Worthington. Although I could also see him as Nick, Jazz’s vampire hottie.
Was there anything you found particularly challenging when writing this book?
itself in the book, but I knew it would be overkill.
Just for fun:
Spend time with my dogs. We’re our own crazy pack. Good thing I’m Alpha. :}
to know you!!
Please welcome Jared to WVR today.
Good morning Jared. Could you tell us where you're from?
I was born in the Shadow Realm. Not a nice place, even though I wouldn’t say the asylum was any better. It’s a harsh land, violent, and you destroy someone so they don’t kill you.

Shadow demon seeks the right female. No cats.
How do you deal with conflict or change?
Over the centuries I’ve had no choice but to deal. It usually involves someone getting hurt and hopefully the one getting hurt isn't me.
Who else is in your life?
Other than Lili? Not much, except for Azmeth, a wizard in Inderman.

Witches and Doctors and Demons, Oh My!
Thank you Michelle for having me on your blog!
I know, you probably see a joke in witch and doctor. Except this witch medical
professional is a lot cuter to look at and the power to back up anything she does.
And did I mention she also has a cat that just happens to have been Cleopatra?
Who better than the Queen of the Nile to advise a lovelorn on her love life.
Lili was one of the first witches to come to mind for my series, but I wanted to
wait until I found the right story for her. And I had others that screamed to be told
first. You can’t argue with a 700 year young witch. Trust me on this.
Lili’s very different than the previous witches. She has snark, but not as much
as Jazz. Doesn’t think of hearts and flowers like Stasi and the only revenge
she’s sought is a nasty hex against a former boyfriend. There’s no kickass to her
personality like Maggie, but you’d still not want to go up against her. Beware the
witch with wand and scalpel.
A Demon Does It Better Lili deals with a dark and demon with a troubled past,
supernatural creatures who are prejudiced against humans, and a sassy doctor
who’s determined to prove the demon isn’t insane. But there’s also a mystery in
the hospital with staff members disappearing for no reason. Lili’s there to find out
what’s going on since a friend of hers is one of the victims.
I like to weave a bit of history in my books. With witches who’ve been around that
long it’s easy to do. It’s also a bit of a challenge for me since I need to decide
what historical facts would fit a particular witch.
With Jazz it was the films of the nineteen-thirties, Stasi once residing in Olde
Salem during the witch trials, Blair’s memories from World War II, Maggie as a
bodyguard in the past and caught up in an ancient Mayan curse, and for Lili it
seemed fitting to mention the infamous Bedlam Asylum in old London.
Call it a variety from me. Paranormal, romance, and a brief history lesson. I
enjoy variety in my reading. What about you? Do you like learning something
with your books or do you just want a straightforward story?
One lucky person will win: A signed arc copy of A Demon Does it better. A signed copy of Demons are a Girls Best Friend. A Hex tote bag, a witch broom pen, hexy body lotion, hexy anti bac, bat pom pom, and witch tatoos!!!!
