My first time for a psycho murderess as a heroine and oddly, I found her a fun, flirty and endearing character (no reflection on my I’ll have you know).  Paired with a staid, serious, demon vowed to celibacy for his one true love to find a pink dragon belonging to Lucifer’s granddaughter just makes this quite the romp around hell.

This is the second installment in the Welcome to Hell Series.  It is a versatile series in that this one can be read as a standalone, out of order or in the correct order with just minor connections to the previous story and a crossover Princess From Hell series.

The story moves quickly when two unlikely minions of Lucifer are paired together for an unusual assignment.  Both are successful enforcers with high kill lists though their methods are vastly different.  Katie aka The Black Widow is psychotic in her dealings from her bloody killings for Lucifer or the way she kills every male that harasses her and that includes lovers.  For the first time ever, she is intrigued by a male that resists her and treats her right even when he clearly is not unaffected.  Xaphan is half-demon and made a vow to his lady in his human life that he would stay chaste until they were together again only its been over three hundred years and he struggles to even remember what he looks like when his psycho is around.  He likes to work alone and is irritated by the crazy, crass female that Lucifer pairs him with.

Katie continues at him and manages to wear down his resistance even as they follow the trail of the stolen dragon.  He is conflicted and doesn’t know what to do about his attraction to Katie and his vow to Roxanne.  Katie has a dilemma too.  She should kill Xaphan because he’s causing feelings to form that are dangerous, but she is reluctant to do so.

Sassy, fun, hot, unlikely and just an all around good time.  I can’t wait to pick up the next one in this series because I know the good time I’ll have from start to finish.  Paranormal Romance lovers who don’t mind having their understanding of hell turned over on its ear with this light humorous world the author created with a unique set of characters along with some flirty dialogue and spicy passion topped off by a little adventure, should grab this one up.

My thanks to the author for a chance to read the book 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

The following two tabs change content below.
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.
  • I haven’t read a lot of Langlais but I’m starting to notice that humor is a staple in her books. Is that an accurate observation?

    • Absolutely, Braine! I’ve read from five different series and they all have humor- bawdy humor too.

  • Oh my gosh how flipping fun! I love her pairings. They’re just so special. Lovely review Sophia 🙂

    • Yes, I totally gaga over her unlikely pairings. I think that is nearly the most fun part at times.
