Convincing one’s fated mate not to back away in terror shouting for holy water is something of a hurdle for a lovelorn Lucifarian and his skeptical match. The adopted alien brother castaways who find a new home and chance for romance on earth have been a spicy, heartwarming sci-fi romance series that I’ve come to look forward to with each new release.
Inferno is book five in a series that works best read in order, but could do just fine as a standalone if one is in a pinch.
Like the other Topian refugees, he is safely ensconced on earth and now open and ready to find his gemmate. Inferno is a Lucifarian so with horns, tail, and real inner fire, finding a human who will choose him isn’t the easiest.
And, when it comes to Geneva that goes double. Her past with a manipulative ex has turned her into a skeptic and I’m not just referring to her being an atheist working as church secretary for her giving, generous uncle as the pastor of his smalltown church. Geneva has come to think that love is as unlikely as aliens.
I enjoy how the author wrote each couple in the series so differently though they have the same general plot conflicts with the alien-human mating. The individuals fight their own past demons and get their own adventure together to help them bond beyond the love-at-first-sight gen match. The pace is swift as these are longer novellas in length so they read fast, but there is no lack of worldbuilding or character development.
Tigre is next and I enjoyed the sizzling, sassy meet-cute with his future mate.
Easy, light, sexy, and a good time for alien romance fans.
My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read the eARC in exchange for an honest review.

About the Book
Inferno by Cara Bristol
He’s an alien who looks like a devil. She’s a church secretary. A match made in heaven…or?
Take nothing at face value. That’s Geneva Walker’s motto in life. But when seven feet of devilishly handsome male complete with horns and a tail strolls into the church where she works as a secretary—even a hardcore nonbeliever would jump to conclusions.
Extraterrestrial Inferno has searched in vain for his genmate, the one woman his Luciferan DNA has chosen for him. When he locates her in the church of a small Idaho town, the last thing he expects is for her to throw him out as though he was Satan himself
How can he prove to the beautiful skeptic they are meant for each other when he can’t even convince her he’s an alien?
