Locke has been a very good demon.
Most hellspawn are banned from Earth, but not glut demon Locke. His favorite indulgence is earthly pastries, so he’s always on his best behavior. When he hears about a bakery supposedly selling the best lemon bars in the world, he has his doubts, but he must have them.
Clara has been a very good (slightly supernatural) human.
Clara can see ghosts. She loves her ghost friends, but knowing they’re always around her, even in the bedroom, has put a serious damper on her love life. The good news? When the seriously hot – and definitely demon – strolls into her shop, demanding she bake her famous lemon bars out of season, his undeniable charm is no match for her.
Locke’s new favorite indulgence? Sexy, curvy, way-too-innocent Clara.
He knows exactly how to seduce women. Sure, a virgin is more difficult to seduce. A virgin who knows he’s a demon? Uncharted territory. But he has to have her. And her lemon bars.
Then the homicidal angel shows up, and all Hell breaks loose.
It’s one Hell of an April Fool’s Prank.
Eloise has always been the level-headed sister, ready for any disaster, but with Clara dating a demon, her skills aren’t holding up so well anymore. When April First begins with a pregnancy announcement, Eloise already has more to deal with than she wants.
She really doesn’t want to deal with a kidnapping, either, but after getting knocked out in a demon brawl in a maternity shop, she finds herself chained in a dungeon in Hell. Her only hope for rescue is a demon she definitely doesn’t want to rely on, a demon she hasn’t been able to get out of her head since an ill-fated romp months ago.
Returning to his family’s chunk of Hell is Killian’s worst nightmare, but he’s the only one who can save Eloise. Oh, and it’s a chance for revenge on the brothers who tormented him for most of his life. He’s not super optimistic about his odds of escaping, but he owes Eloise a favor for being a jerk to her, and he’s going to die soon, anyway. He might as well take his brothers out in the process—and see Eloise one last time before he goes.
He’s got it all planned out, except for one slight miscalculation: his homeland has been transformed into a springtime paradise, complete with carnivorous bunnies, venom-spitting lilies, and Hell’s first Easter egg hunt.
Heaven is the worst place to be at Halloween, but at least Hazel has a sexy angel to torment while she’s stuck there.
Both of Hazel Jubilee’s sisters escaped Hell and scored hot new demon husbands, but Hazel has been imprisoned in Heaven for five months without any hope of release. She’s lonely, angry, and stir-crazy. If she had a frying pan, she’d bash in her angel captor’s face. Again.
Mettle needs to impress the Archangel Gabriel to get his dream promotion, and Hazel’s stubborn refusal to cooperate with him is making that impossible. His new assignment investigating a string of murders seems promising, but his hopes are dashed when he finds at the next murder the fallen angel Abnegation, who’s already saved one Jubilee sister’s life.
Mettle’s now stuck with both Hazel and Abnegation, and he doesn’t have enough prison cells for them. He needs to keep them separated to get the truth of how they’re related, what they know about the murders, and why Hazel can resurrect the dead. She’s a weak human, and Mettle’s never broken his three-thousand-year old vow of abstinence. He figures she’ll be the easiest prisoner to contain in his own home.
In three thousand years, Mettle has never been more wrong.
