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. Xaphan's 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. Warning:This story centers around a grumpy demon holding on to 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 already know you're going to Hell, then dive on in.
They do love kill – both of them – and even have competitions to see can kill the most.
‘Natch these are demons who need killing but.
And any of the Damned who get involved and killed will just go back into the pit and be reborn as a new soul wiped clean of all sins, so not that bad maybe?

Small Town Billionaire Romance #1-5
contemporary fiction, romance, humour
Justin is a self-made man, with millions to his name. But he also has a needy brother tagging along, spending his money almost as fast as he can make it, without any desire to pull his own weight. This leaves Justin with two choices: cut his brother loose or find a new investment.
In truth, he knows the right choice is to make his brother stand on his own, but the guilt is too much. So he starts seeking out new investments, which leads him to Annie and her combination café and bookstore.
Unfortunately, her store isn’t the right investment for him, but Annie herself is irresistible. And her daughter is just too lovely, making him start to see a new future for himself. But between his business and his brother, can he really find room in his life for Annie and her daughter?
A series of 5 books of which I only read the first as too bored to read further.
I kept saying ‘you can’t franchise the idea of a bookshop that sells coffee and cakes, and behaves as a community centre’ – and finally the heroine agreed. I really can’t even consider why anyone, even the author thought this was a good idea for an investor – so as the characters are clearly very far from business minded I decided, as they say on the Apprentice ‘You’re fired’ to the books.

The first book encouraged me to buy the series so … but that said the stories were very similar to all such stories with lots of fighting, finding mates in strange places, romance and jealousy and traitors and…
Misadventures of a City Girl
Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss
contemporary fiction, romance,
(12 Sept. 2017)
Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.
Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can't stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she's just a city girl--a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he's settled here to find.
When Madison discovers Luke's secluded cabin, he can't turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they're forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who's made him feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?
On retreat from her life, Madison ends up in the mountains of California ad encounters Luke.
Luke aims to live a solitary life as his military service induced PTSD and this makes his life around noise difficult.
They fall in lust.
I had expected some humour in the story telling from the title but this was missing. And in reality, PTSD is not so easily overcome even for a short time, and just living away from people won’t fix it. So, some lack of psychological understanding of the syndrome by the author.
