"An unusual urban fantasy"

Jezebel is a succubus, who displeased the higher-ups in Hell and now has a price on her head. Unwilling to return to Hell and running from all manner of nasty demons, Jezebel turns to a witch for help. Jezebel gets the witch to turn her into a human and give her an amulet to ward off evil--she is now a human without a soul who looks like the witch. After stealing the witch's ID, money, clothes, and credit cards, Jezebel runs to New York. On the way, Jezebel meets a very attractive man, Paul Hamilton, who helps her and gives her his phone number. Once in New York, Jezebel gets a job as an exotic dancer and tries to adjust to being a human. Will one of the denizens of Hell be able to collect on the reward for Jezebel and can a human without a soul find true love?

HELL'S BELLES is an unusual urban fantasy with gritty moments and romantic elements. Jezebel, who is obsessed with sex as a succubus, doesn't change that aspect of her personality as a human. However, she becomes a lot nicer to those around her and slowly grows more human and sympathetic. While I found the continuous shifting in the book from past to present a little distracting, the premise was fresh and the plot engaging.

Hell on Earth starts here…

**A PNR Reviewer Recommended Read**

Jezebel’s not your average exotic dancer. For one thing, she’s a 4,000-year-old succubus. For another, she’s on the run from Hell (which isn’t easy to do in high heels). Hiding on the mortal coil as a human doesn’t protect her from muggers, lactose intolerance…or having feelings for Paul Hamilton, a man haunted by his past. Demons are closing in, which is enough to make Jezebel shiver in her G-string. But it’s her love for Paul that’s going to have deadly consequences. (Humans, she laments, really should come with instruction manuals.)
