Being the youngest daughter of the Devil isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The days of teenage rebellion and vows of chastity made just to tick off her father are over, and now all Faith Bettincourt wants is a nice, quiet life. Unfortunately, thanks to the unexpected arrival of her demonically-downsized sister, a ditzy succubus roommate, and dear old Dad himself, Faith’s plans for a relaxing vacation spent watching reruns go up in flames.

Now it’s all Faith can do to keep the family reunion from Hell (literally) under wraps, and the angelically-inclined hottie across the hall from realizing there’s something weird about his neighbor. And, thankfully, it’s working. Until an angelic stalker shows up in a bid to steal her powers and take over the world.

Forget watching reruns. With the way things are going, Faith will need the luck of the Devil just to survive until Monday.

A family reunion between Heaven and Hell that will entertain to the very last page!

Life can sometimes be a living Hell and as the youngest daughter of the Devil, Faith knows Hell firsthand being a demoness and all. Trying to live a normal life, Faith works as a pediatric nurse in a hospital and lives with her newly turned succubus friend, Lisa. Life is as normal as it’s going to get for her, until a visit from her half sister Hope opens the door for a full blown family reunion that threatens to destroy the quiet life she’s worked so hard to attain and send it straight to…you know where. Just when Faith thinks things can’t get any worse, she’s accused of stealing prescription drugs at her job and can’t seem to shake the crush she has on her “angelic” hot neighbor Matt. This weekend is turning out to be one Hell of a way to start a vacation for Faith!

This is a great new fun and sexy paranormal read! You will love Faith, her succubus roommate Lisa, demon brother Tolliver and half-sister Hope, who all bring very colorful personalities to the table. The family dynamics and dysfunction add all the humor necessary in this story and will have you bursting at the seams with laughter. Angels and Demons play nicely this time around; Satan and the Alpha (God) are brothers after all and tend to fight over Wii Mario Cart and not the fate of the world. Faith’s meddling mother (who I couldn’t stand) is present for most of the book and even cousin Jesus (who likes to be called J) makes an appearance from his busy schedule as a school teacher in the Midwest to add to the family fun!

“My life was becoming its own reality television show. Real World: The Paranormal Season. All we needed was a fairy, two werewolves, and a vampire with sexual-identity issues. It’d be a guaranteed a hit.”

Take everything you think you know about Heaven and Hell and toss it out the window when you read LUCK OF THE DEVIL! Patricia Eimer has created a delightful comedic world of angels and demons with a little bit of suspense, mystery and romance that complement each other flawlessly. Faith’s character is snarky and completely loveable. She’s a great heroine and is easy to relate to, despite her supernatural powers. This book has no dark elements but plenty of lightheartedness. If you’re looking for a feel-good read with a touch of the paranormal, look no further, this is the book to pick up!

 
RtDS Recommends:  If you love paranormal romances with a good dose of humor like Katie MacAlister’s Aisling Grey Guardian Series or her Silver Dragons Series.
