This was a fast read and such fun that I’m pretty sure I read it wearing a continuous grin.  The novella continues the Welcome to Hell series and like the others can be read out of order or as a standalone without too much trouble.

When Death comes to call, Marigold the witch invites him back for a dinner date.  Marigold acted on impulse, but is strongly attracted to the male who invaded her apartment one night.  His timely appearance prevents her from a deadly mistake even though his purpose was to collect her soul after she made that mistake.  She’s not sure what her snap decision will yield her, but she’s willing to gambling that it might bring her some fun between the sheets.

Mictain, former Aztec god of death now employed by the reaper, can’t believe it that the little, flirtatious human witch can see him.  But he’s more intrigued by her sultry attitude and invitation for a date. That’s a bit of something out of the ordinary for the bored god.  Unfortunately, Marigold’s ability gains Lucifer’s notice and the Lord of Hell wants to know why Marigold is different so Mictain’s invitation is now an opportunity/command to seduce her and glean intel.

Marigold is having a good time with Mictain until he flubs it and makes it clear that he is using her to find out answers.  She is naturally miffed at being lied to and seduced so leads him on a merry chase realizing that she really cares more than she should about him.

Mictain will do anything to convince Marigold to forgive him, but even he didn’t imagine that it would include rescuing her from demonic attack and launching a war against her powerful ‘daddy dearest’.  Meanwhile, Lucifer enjoys the fun of another matchmaking effort in Hell.

Light, fun, flirty and scorching hot is this entertaining paranormal that mixes at least three mythologies in the most entertaining way.  The characters are at the least entertaining, but definitely engaging.  Lucifer’s machinations are at the heart of this series along with his schemes to win the annual all-dimensions golf tourny. It’s always intriguing to see what pairings the author will give with each new book.  The romance is unapologetically light, fast and angst-free.

Anyone who just wants something quick, entertaining and laugh-producing should grab up this book (series or anything else written by the author).

My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this novella in exchange for an honest review.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens.

I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. I enjoy strong alpha males, and shifters. Lots of big, overprotective shifters. I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane…with pleasure. Do you like something a little darker? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.
  • You are just plowing through her books. So jealous! Light, fun, flirty and scorching hot sounds pretty dang good to me 😀

    • Oh me too, Anna! I think I was mildly depressed when I read the last of my stash of Welcome to Hell series books. Thankfully, she took pity and allowed me another review book from a newer series to enjoy soon.

  • I read my first book from her this summer and loved it, I want more ! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Great review!
