A Demon and His Psycho: Welcome to Hell #2 by Eve Langlais

Another from Eve Langlais, and there are so many elements to enjoy that it is hard to pick just one.  Lucifer is front and center in this story, perhaps in a marionette master sort of way: it is his machinations and matchmaking that is pairing his loyal minions with one purpose in mind: increasing the demon army in hell.

Katie is an executioner: she loves her job. No she really LOVES her job.  Katie has anger issues, and is clinically diagnosable.  But there is a deliciously wicked twist to Katie: she has adopted a very bubbly, giggly demeanor that makes her appear harmless, when she is anything but.

Lucifer enjoys Katie, in fact she is one of his favorites for getting a job done properly.  But he needs her to team with Xaphan to find a missing dragon.  And, somewhere in his devious brain he thinks that the two are the perfect team: for this job and for life.

Xaphan is a grumpy, semi-antisocial ex-warrior with a train load of baggage.  Unused to working with anyone, the last thing he wants to do is run in search of someone’s pet, and certainly not paired with the chatty she of the questionable sanity Katie.

The two are cleverly paired: from annoying to distracting, there is something about Katie that Xaphan just can’t ignore.  Even with the fact that she is known for killing every man she has ever had sex with.  See, Katie doesn’t see that as odd: they all did something to break her trust or hurt her.  She was just evening the odds.  Yet Xaphan, with his peculiar honor and his pining over a long lost love show her what a good man can be, and is.  And their interactions are priceless: the personalities just manage to play well with one another in dialog that is clever, witty and feels appropriate to their situation.

Both characters experience a wholesale change in their long-held opinions and attitudes, as they come together with sparks and steam.  Their connection develops slowly, but is all the more convincing as their reliance on one another grows and strengthens. I could picture Lucifer with a satisfied grin on his face, as his plans for these two come to fruition.

Warning:This story centers around a grumpy demon holding onto an ancient vow and a perky psycho (with killer tendencies) who is determined to make him snap. There's cursing, melt-your-screen hotness, messed up religious tropes and snort out loud fun. If you enjoy raunchy humor, sizzling moments and already know you’re going to Hell, then dive on in.♦

I'm not crazy. I just have anger issues.

With a giggle and an outrageous mouth – perfect for things other than talking – Katie comes flying into Xaphan’s life, upsetting centuries of self-inflicted misery. How can he stay true to the one he lost when a bubbly psycho, with mismatched eyes, keeps consuming his thoughts – and awakening his desire?

So she was a tad bit nuts, Katie’s insanity came in handy as the Devil’s favorite problem solver. But killing’s not on the menu when a dragon goes missing, and worse, Lucifer teams her up with Hell’s grumpiest demon. His rejection of her advances only makes her more determined to seduce him. And despite her violent reputation, a part of her is oddly tempted to let him live.

Welcome to Hell where the rules are always changing, the ash is constantly raining, and Lucifer is watching, waiting to steal your soul…

About Eve Langlais

Hello, my name is Eve. I'm a stay at home mom who works as a webmistress/customer service rep and in between juggling my three kids, hubby, and housework, I write really raunchy stuff--usually with werewolves lol.

I was born in British Columbia, but being a military brat, I have lived a little bit everywhere--Quebec, New Brunswick, Labrador, Virginia (USA) and finally Ontario. My family and I currently live just outside Ottawa, our nation's capital.

I tend to have a lot of sexual tension in my tales because I think all torrid love affairs start with a tingle in our tummies. And when my characters do finally give in to the needs of their flesh? Well, let's just say, you shouldn't be reading my stuff at work. The door is wide open, explicit and hot. Really, really hot.

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 HEA.
