Product Description

Product Description

What’s America’s top female action star doing on a tropical island shrouded in secrecy? To Gina Bliss, competing in a survival-type reality show is a nice change from fending off on-screen villains. Until she meets real-life action hero Derek Marks. A survival specialist in a tight black T and sexy stubble, he’s arousing every bad-boy fantasy she’s ever had . . . and testing her survival skills to the max.

Martial arts, jungle warfare—Derek’s done it all. But his latest mission is more dangerous than a stick of dynamite. Try telling that to the sexy, adrenaline-pumped actress who’s got his libido racing off the charts. As the heat rises between them and real-life violence erupts, suddenly Derek and Gina are on the run . . . and when they uncover a secret so explosive it could blow the lid off their so-called reality show, these two unlikely heroes are about to discover what surviving’s really about. . . .

From the Paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable.... once you get into the storyline 4 July 2012
By Kelly
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It took me a little while to get into the storyline, but once I did I really enjoyed this book and bought book 2 as soon as I had finished this first book in the series.

Definitely worth a read - easy to read without complex storylines, but still has enough action/plot to keep you interested.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea hampered by unbelievable details. 27 Dec 2006
By Jane Litte - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I think this is one of those books were the hook will totally captivate people or turn them off. Gina Bliss is an action star in the vein of Jackie Chan. She does all her stunts herself. Coming off of back to back action movie blockbusters, Gina agrees to do a Reality TV show that involves physical challenges. The TV show is really a guise used by a demon hunting recruiter named Lou to gather elite fighters from around the globe to train them to be demon hunters. Derek Marks is the hot trainer who Gina constantly challenges. Derek and Gina are an explosive combination both in bed and out.

The reader must suspend disbelief in order to buy the premise of the book: A) that a major movie star would participate in a Reality TV show;

B) that disparate individuals can come together and in two days be an elite fighting machine;

C) demons were super fast and powerful yet could easily be defeated by humans.

If a reader can get past those issues, and just go with the story without paying attention to any realities of the world, there is a fast paced action story that features bad guys that act like bad guys and a different mythology. There is plenty of action and steamy sex scenes to fill the pages. For me, though, this was a good idea hampered by some really unbelievable details.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the demons!! 23 Jan 2007
By iheartjackbauer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Wow. Jaci Burton really hits a home run with SURVIVING DEMON ISLAND!

Actress Gina Bliss has been working non-stop for two years doing action movies. When her agent brings her an opportunity to do a reality show, her first instinct is to say no. When she is told more about it, she is intrigued. When she learns that she'll be able to play with weapons and fight fake "demons", she's on board. While she'd like to be one of those people that like to lay on a beach and drink mai tai's, she's not. The reality show sounds like the perfect vacation for her.

Derek Marks is in charge of training the new "hunters". After seeing a demon kidnap his little brother from his bed over 20 years ago, Derek will do whatever it takes to destroy the Realm of Light. What the newcomers don't know is that they are being trained to be real hunters of real demons. Derek is blindsided by his attraction to Gina, who is as far from a Hollywood starlet as one would expect. When the demons invade their training island, the stakes are raised and Derek has to convince the hunters that the demons are very real.

The relationship with Derek and Gina is strong from the start. Burton throws in several twists, including why the five hunters were chosen to be trained and who Derek really is. I, for one, was surprised at the ending. It was something I didn't expect and made the book that much better. I highly recommendt his book, which is engrossing and fast-paced. You won't regret picking this one up!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW, You gotta get this one 30 Dec 2006
By H. Tutorow - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The action was non-stop in this one!! The big cookie for me,though, is always character development. Do I care about these people and would I want to have dinner with them? Oh yeah. Gina and Derek are characters that make you care where the story is going and it has that little darn at the end when the story is over is there as well. I loved the "reality show" angle. I don't write these reviews as a rule because I'm usually to ready to go onto the next book, but this deserves a "You Gotta Get THIS One!" I really hope you do.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Strong Start For A New Series! 14 Mar 2007
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Gina Bliss is an action movie extraordinaire leading lady but the last couple of years has been busy movie after movie and she needs a break. Well, what could be more relaxing then doing a reality television show on a tropical island? Sign her up! She goes to Demon Island with a cast of others and one super sexy hot trainer named Derek Marks. He is so good he's bad and Gina is all about winning. But, the reason why she's there is not exactly correct and it's not long before danger and passion make an intriguing mix.

Derek is not expecting Gina to be so competitive nor so pretty. He's also worried about the mixed feelings that seem to rise each time they're together. The mission could be in danger if he can't keep his focus and his hands off Gina. But, things are easier said then done and Derek can't keep stay away from her. Now if he can only keep them both alive.

This is a page turning read with plenty of twist and turns, steam, heat and attraction. Ms. Burton has done a very good job creating her story and readers will feel compelled to continue reading until the last page. Derek and Gina are well matched and the ending...well let's just say it was a very good one. This is the first book in her Demon series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, Well Rounded 21 Aug 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this escapade; a really good book, incorporating a very strong development of storyline, conflict and characters, with influxes of sexual encounters. Yes, as others have said you have to suspend reality and embrace the mystical aspects, the title does include 'Demon' in it. I just finished the `Riley Brothers series' from Burton's latest work, which is mega hot with sex scenes and a little less this was quite a change (direct reversal , actually). It's the perfect beach, vacation or public read when you don't want to be blushing and panting, but still desire a little spice.
