"A Delightful Paranormal Western with a touch of Romance"

Lucy Firr, the Devil's daughter arrives on earth with a purpose. She plans on securing three souls in exchange for her freedom from Hell.

It's 1891 and not odd for a man to choose his wife at a bride auction. Lucy is determined to go home with Jed Caine. He's young, good-looking and she believes she can seduce him with no trouble. Once she has his soul, how difficult could it be to take a pregnant woman's soul and an infant's soul? However, she didn't plan on Jed going after her heart.

Jed had planned on marrying a sensible woman who would help him take care of his pregnant sister-in-law and help him around the homestead. Lucy doesn't know how to cook or clean and his sister-in-law is afraid of her. What the hell did he get himself into? To top it off, Lucy is beautiful and he wants her, but first he's determined they form a friendship before they fall into bed.

If life couldn't be anymore difficult, Lucy's half-brother, Deacon arrives on the scene to play devil's advocate.

Ms. Drewry has written a delightful paranormal western with a touch of romance. Lucy and Jed's tale is a sweet venture of discovery as they each realize what their hearts truly want. Lucy and Jed's banter will have you chuckling. Though Lucy is a spitfire from hell, she's also naïve about relationships, giving her an adoring charm. Jed is a rugged cowboy thinking love in a marriage isn't necessary, but he discovers without it, his life would be a soulless venture. I truly enjoyed this wonderful story and look forward to reading Deacon's tale, "Dancing with the Devil."

SUMMARY

GIVING THE DEVIL HIS DUDE

Shoveling sulfur and brimstone could really get a girl down. When her dad offered freedom from the fiery depths in exchange for one simple soul-snatching, Lucy Firr jumped at the chance. With her considerable powers of seduction, she threw herself at rancher Jed Caine. Yet instead of taking her to bed, he made her muck out the pigsty.

It would take the patience of a saint to resist the likes of Lucy Firr—and Lord knew Jed was no saint. The temptress fired his blood like no woman he'd ever met. Why she'd suddenly latched on to him, he had no idea. But the safest place for her—and her virtue—was out in the barn.

Lucy could see the heat in Jed's gaze. But it was the tenderness of his touch and his hard-won smile that undid her. She was supposed to steal his soul, yet here he was…capturing her heart.
