The Delight

Eve Langlais knocked me over with a wonderfully funny romance between a demon, a witch and the matchmaker, Lucifer. These two (or three) can’t be serious for any amount of time, but when they finally get down and dirty, they blow me away to the damn mortal world. *sobs*

Let me introduce you to a demon named Remy. He is a man whore, loving women and leaving them…and if they don’t leave he introduces them to his crazy mom. Then there is Ysabel the witch, burned at the stake by her lovers mother. Upon her death she made a pack with the devil for revenge on five souls. Then there is Lucifer, who is trying to build up is big badass army after fighting Lilith. While he is truly evil, he does have a softer side for his wife and daughters. But back to the big badass army. Lucifer need more than grunts, so now he is in the matchmaking business so these woefully lovers can start punching out babies.

Now days before her contract is up with Lucifer, the five souls she went after have escaped Hell prison. No one knows who or how they got out, but Ysabel now relives her death each day by burning alive. No damage is done, but she feels the pain of her death. For each day the souls are free, adds another minute to her suffering. Needing a tracker, Lucifer assigns Remy, his best, to help Ysabel.

Remy is one demon I would let eat crackers in my bed. His life of love ’em and leave ’em is well, boring. He can’t even believe he’s ready to settle down. And when he meets Ysabel, the sparks fly, but just not exactly the way he wants. See, she has trust issues with how her lover didn’t fight for her in the end and was just using her. So she is in essence a 500 year old remade virgin.

They spare, they duck, they kiss up against a wall and they fight each other to the end, but Remy has made up his mind the witch is his. Oh, *fans myself* I can’t get enough of Remy. He’s everything I want a demon to be and more. Never really serious, but knows all the right things to do to win his woman. Loyal to the end, he is just what Ysabel needs to restore her faith in men.

Ysabel is a bad assed woman that I would love to meet. She takes no crap off Lucifer. I mean the man is in charge of Hell and she gives him Hell as his assistant. Never giving into Remy, she tries to hide everything going on from him, because it’s her burden to bear. But she knows when a good thing is in front of her even if she doesn’t want to admit it.

Oh, and crazy parents make the best in-laws and it doesn’t hurt that Lucifer is in charge too.

This left me laughing and loving through the entire book. Now I really know what everyone turns to Eve Langlais for laughter, passion and a good dose of evil!

If you are reading Welcome to Hell, you know Lucifer has a humungous role in match making.
Well, he cracked me up throughout this entire story.

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

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!
  • This sounds like so much fun! I’ve only read a couple of her books but I’ve liked the ones I read. I love it when a book can make me laugh for the right reasons and at the right time.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I have had hit or miss with Eve, but this one was a knockout fun story that I read very quickly. Now I want the next book in the series.

  • I’ve got that book ! Twice – two different editions ! I really have to read it, don’t I ? Great review 🙂

    • Shari Delighted Read

      You so have to read it. It sat on my Kindle way to long and really is a quick read packed with action and down and dirty action.

  • Oh my this sounds like a lot of fun!!!!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      This was so much fun to read. I needed it after having had a really bad experience with a book. Comical Lucifer, sign me up!

  • She’s so fun. I need to get to this series this year. Ahhh so many books so not enough time!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      This was a really quick read at only 159 pages. I read it in between house cleaning chores. Hairballs and all! It has a car sized cat if that helps 😉

  • Oh man, I think this series was as good as her purple aliens and the latest Kodiak’s Point shifters. Her Lucifer is the best. I need to go back and get her Lucifer’s daughter series just for some more Lucifer.

    Haha! Great tune choice!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Lucifer cracked me up. I can’t decide if he is really evil, straddling the line or good but puts up an act. I have to go get the next book and find the trilogy about his daughters.

  • Melanie Simmons

    I’ve only read this book in this series, but plan on more soon. I agree with Sophia that you should try Lucifer’s Daughter. Same Lucifer. Very funny.

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Ahhh, I am running out now to get those books! My TBR hates all of you! But I will get through it some day or die trying.

  • Ok this sounds hilarious Shari I want in. The characters sound cool and I love that Lucifer has a soft side..this reminds me of Supernatural in that respect

    • Shari Delighted Read

      I loved this book. I have had a hit or miss love for this author, but this Hell series seems to be fun loving.

  • I really need to read this series…great review Shari!

    • Shari Delighted Read

      Oh yes you do need to read it! It’s fairly short and I got it done in an afternoon.
