Taming the Demon

Shattered Blade

Demon Steel Series

Their bond threatens her life and his tortured soul... 

Devin James wields a demon blade. Or does the demon blade wield him? The bond between man and steel is soul deep, the source of Devin's power and an ever-present torment. Struggling against the evil forged within the blade, Devin patrols the dark streets of Albuquerque, searching for innocents to rescue. That's how he finds Natalie Chambers.... 

Natalie is sure that helping Devin is another in a long series of very bad decisions, but she can't abandon the man who saved her life--a man who believes that the demon blade might turn him into a monster. She is powerless to resist their fierce attraction. 

But love is their only chance at salvation. Can they now find the faith to take that chance? And can they keep the demon blade from the man who would destroy them both?

Shattered Blade is the second of the Demon Steel stories, the world of heroes and living steel.
