"Endearing characters shine in this short story that is hotter than... uh, Hell."
Lani is a librarian in the small town of Demon, Arizona.
In her mind, the quirky town needed more information about
demons and witchcraft in their library. So, she headed to
a paranormal convention to gather books for the Demon
library. During the convention, she accidentally falls
through a portal to Hell and, quite literally, lands in the
lap of the most handsome man she ever saw. Thinking she
fell and hit her head, she goes with the "dream", acting on
her sudden and all-encompassing attraction to Meryk. Soon
enough, Lani realizes she wants a lasting relationship with
Meryk, but can she figure out a way to bridge the realm so
they can be together?
Hotter Than Hell is an enjoyable, tidy short story.
I felt the short length of the story is perfect, telling an
entire tale. If the story were longer, I believe the
pacing would have suffered and my interest would have
waned. The story is long enough to produce likable and
multi-dimensional characters. Since Lani is a bit goofy
and Meryk still has issues with his father, these traits
endear the characters more to the reader. When they come
together, Lani and Meryk burn hotter than... uh, Hell.
Pick up this short story if you're in the mood for an
entertaining fast, read. You won't be disappointed.

s the Librarian for a small sleepy town of Demon, Arizona, Lani Monroe has a certain sedate image to maintain. But her calm life takes a hot turn when she falls through a portal to Hell and lands in the lap of the oh-so-sexy Prince of Pestilence. Meryk has no idea how the human ended up in his arms or why she seems to think she's asleep, but he's more than willing to prove he can be the demon of her dreams.
