A Demon and His Witch

Welcome To Hell: Volume 1


Welcome back to Book Club Thursday. This month my fellow bloggers and I are having fun with paranormal romance. Come join us as we share our reviews with you.

Blurb:
Remy’s not ready to settle down, not when the ladies love him so much. A giving demon, why would he deny them the pleasure of his excellent technique? But his view on monogamy changes when he meets a saucy witch with a firm grasp of the word ‘No!’ Who could resist the challenge? However, before he can put his demonizing days behind him, he needs to catch the bad guys, save the witch, and find a way to convince her to love him, not kill him. 

Warning: This story contains a sexy demon with corny pickup lines and a sassy witch who works for Satan. There is coarse language, hot scenes, a twisted version of Hell and a whole lot of giggles. If you possess an open mind, a good sense of humor and a tainted soul, then read at your own peril.

The Welcome to Hell series (is best read in order for full enjoyment of Lucifer and his ongoing matchmaking attempts):
Book One : A Demon and his Witch Book Two : A Demon and his Psycho Book Two and a Half : Date With Death Book Three : A Demon and her Scot

My Review: 3 Hearts

I have never read anything by this author, and she has some really great sounding titles, so I thought our group should give her a whirl. This tale is about witch Ysabel, betrayed by love and she ends up making a deal with Lucifer in order to wreak vengeance on those who did her wrong. As she nears the end of her 500 year contract with her boss, the five souls who betrayed her escape Hell, hindering her contractual obligation. Lucifer pairs her with Remy, a half demon womanizer, to help her retrieve the souls.
     Ysabel doesn't trust Remy and she has sworn off men. Remy, for some odd reason, wonders why he is so attracted to this shrew of a woman and there is a battle of the sexes as they go on their mission as well as getting under each others skin.
     This novella is full of raunchy and snarky humor. Sometimes the jokes don't work and fall a little flat. But this story isn't rocket science, and just enjoy it for a a few hours of fun escape. You may find it worth your time. There are some good ideas in here concerning Ysabel's curse, and if she can learn to trust Remy, she may find love is something she is deserving of. 


I hope you join us next week as we each share a favorite paranormal book with you. See you next week on October 31st,   Happy Halloween !

  1. I agree with you that some of the humor fell flat, but the rest was very good. It was a good pick.

    1. I loved the scenes with the fires. Remy came through for her.

  2. I liked this book, and as you read in my humor I thought the humor at times was too much. It was already good and didn't a bunch of extra bells and whistles. If my analogy makes sense! LOL

    1. I agree. Sometimes she tried to hard and she didn't need to.
