REVIEW

"an absolute score for Ms. Kessler!"

Ex-demon succubus-turned-mortal, Jezebel (aka Jesse Harris), is relishing the perks of her new life. She's got a brand-spanking new soul, still working as an exotic dancer, and last, but definitely not least, her own personal White Knight, Paul Hamilton -- the ubersexy love of her life. After Jesse decided to give up on Hell and all of its luxury amenities -- who can forget the Lake of Fire, roasting eyeballs over the campfires (tasty), and that wonderful aroma of sulfur and brimstone (ah, reminds me of home), all Jesse wants to do is live out her mortal life. Is that too much for one girl to ask? And what is it with all the demons accosting her in the bathroom? Sheesh, a girl can't even get a bit of privacy anymore.

But Hell is now under new management, and He is still smarting after Jesse turned her back on Hell. He's decided that Jesse needs to be made an example of and means to bring her back -- no matter the cost! So now Jesse's caught between having to fight off her ex-demon lover who keeps trying to tempt her back into Hell (and hooboy, can he ever do some tempting) and trying to survive the murderous psycho demon, Lilith. But when the demon's all fail in luring Jesse back into the fold, they go after the one thing that really matters to her -- Paul.

This second addition to the wonderful Hell on Earth series is an absolute score for Ms. Kessler! Her writing keeps you pinned to your seat with a book you're unable to put down. And while following Jesse through the mundane mortal life is entertaining enough, it's when she goes back to Hell that the real fun begins. It's a wonderful supernatural mixture of wit, romance, and some very hot (no pun intended) scenes. I can honestly say I loved this book and eagerly await the next in the series.

SUMMARY

There's Nothing Worse Than A Demon With A Grudge

Jesse may no longer be a soul-stealing succubus, but she's got a Hell of a past. She'd love to come clean to her sweet, super-hot boyfriend Paul, but how exactly does a girl start that conversation? There's no name tag that reads: "I Used to Have Sex with Men before Taking Their Souls to the Lake of Fire--Ask Me How!" Just like some people are worth being monogamous for (shudder), some secrets are worth keeping. Like the fact that bad boy incubus Daunuan keeps popping up from the Underworld to put some toe-curling moves on her; that her former associates are trying to strong-arm her back into the fold; and that every supernatural entity on the planet seems to want to have a conversation with her in the bathroom. But someone in the Underworld isn't ready to play nice (go figure), and this time, the stakes are nothing less than Paul's immortal soul.

If Hell wants Jesse back so badly, they've got her. But payback's a bitch, and this bitch is about to rock Hell like a hurricane--or lose her soul trying...
