"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.
