"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
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
But Hell is now under new management, and He is
smarting after Jesse turned her back on Hell. He's
that Jesse needs to be made an example of and means to
bring her back -- no matter the cost! So now Jesse's
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.

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...
