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.
The end is here.
The flood has begun on Earth. The plague of Kur has swept across both Earth and Hell. The cure for it, a formula that’s been in the hands of the archangel Gabriel since the first flood, is wrong. Only the Prince of Lust, sometimes known as Abe, knows the true formula.
Except he doesn’t. It’s locked in his ancient memories, and there’s only one person in the three realms who can unlock it.
Verity wants nothing to do with this.
Despite being felled over a single night of stupidity with Abe, Verity has a good life on Earth. Well, not exactly good, but she’s made the best of it. The world might be ending, but she’s finally able to put her warrior training to good use fighting the Kun’Sumani. But when Verity kills the wrong demons, she’s stuck with a spawn she has to return to Hell and a note that might be the true formula. Verity only knows one way to Hell, through the home of Abe’s daughters.
Cue the reunion.
Verity doesn’t want anything to do with Abe. He claims to be her mate, her one true love, her evermore, but she is repulsed by him. He wants her to go on a journey with him to find the meaning of the note and return the spawn to his family. She just wants to go home and be done with Abe forever.
Too bad the portal to Earth is broken.
Hell has a problem.
The battle with the Kun’Sumani rages on. There’s a cure now, but it can’t be produced fast enough to end the invasion. Too many warriors have been killed, too many orphans have been left behind. Hell needs help, and there’s no way to bring it in.
Killian and Eloise have a problem, too.
Centuries of torture have taken their toll on Killian. It’s been almost a year since the last time he and Eloise got down to business, and their relationship suffers for it. Eloise has rewritten her life to help him, but everything she does seems to make it worse.
Here comes Abe to mess everything up.
The Prince of Lust, the fallen angel Abaddon, also known as dad to Eloise, has a plan to kill three vampire bats by elevating Killian to Prince of Wrath and converting Killdevil Castle into a waypoint, boarding school, and training facility. It seems like the smartest plan he’s ever had.
Until he tries to kill a fourth vampire bat by challenging Killian to get it on with Eloise, ruining everything.
No surprises there.
