She was an angel at the gates of Hell.
When Kenan, an incubus, finds a caged angel for sale in the Hellsgate marketplace, he sees her as a challenge. Certain that his skills in seduction will work as well on a heavenly creature as they do on mortal women, he buys Jahel, intent on having her soul as a novelty in his collection.
Knowing he must gain Jahel's trust if she is to come to his bed willingly, Kenan treats her more as his guest than as his slave. When she reveals what brought her to the mouth of Hell in the first place—retrieving the soul of a young girl she was guarding—he even offers to help her complete her mission.
Though he has promised Jahel freedom, Kenan soon realizes she has captured his heart instead. And as their passion for one another grows, they find themselves caught in a struggle between Heaven and Hell, one that will lead them to the very edge of the apocalypse...

Heaven and hell meet for a shot at love! As an incubus, Kenan lives his life seducing women and collecting their souls in Hell. While walking the streets of the Hellsgate market, Kenan stumbles upon a rare find, a captive angel for sale. Never one to pass up a challenge, he purchases Jahel from the seller and takes her to his home. There, she reveals the reason for being in hell is to save the soul of a young girl in her charge. Kenan is awed by Jahel and decides to help her find the soul held by a hellhound, with intentions to seduce her. When the tables are turned and Kenan find himself falling for Jahel, these two find themselves fighting a battle that can bring on the apocalypse and end the passion they share. This is a short read with excellent world building, engaging characters and driven by action. Jahel is a fascinating character that I wanted to learn more of, even as an angel she’s not the strong and outspoken heroine I’m used to but has an innocence and sweetness to her that is very endearing. Kenan is a real charmer who’s used to seducing his way through anything and is caught off guard when he meets Jahel who evokes an unbridled passion in him…it’s always great to watch the ladies’ man fall in love. Although the romance takes a back seat to the threat of an impending apocalypse, there are a few erotic moments between the two main characters that are worth mentioning. Demon’s Fall is a well crafted novella in a fascinating world of angels and demons that is a heavenly delight for those who enjoy a fight of good vs. evil and a forbidden romance!
