Dueling with the Devil #1
by Vivi Dumas
What happens to a supermodel who loses her beauty? Angelique Diaz does what any girl from New Orleans would do…make a deal with the Devil.
Angel lives the life of the rich and fabulous, until a heinous car accident mars her face. After thirteen surgeries and losing everything she deemed important, she seeks out the dark forces to salvage her life. In exchange for his help, Lucifer forces her to hunt supernatural renegades, which have eluded the pits of Hell. In her quest to regain beauty and get out of her contract with Lucifer, Angel stumbles upon love in the arms of a demon.
Commander of the Legions and an Underworld Demon, Jacque Toussant, takes a field commission to escape the madness of a failed relationship and prove himself worthy of his demon heritage. Jacque is content with his existence as a field soldier until Lucifer gives him a special assignment to oversee a new trainee, a supermodel nonetheless. Humans hold low appeal for Jacque, especially the females. That is until he meets Angel. Jacque risks everything, including his life, to find a way to break Angel’s deal with Lucifer.
“Sexiness, mayhem and magic…. A kick ass book!!
Angelique (Angel) Dias had the ultimate life. She was a top model, she had the car, the money, the clothes and the shoes to go with. Until the night a drunk driver hits her car. The accident leaves the one side of face scared from forehead to chin taking away her looks and livelihood. At the lowest point in Angel’s life, she makez a pact with the devil, her soul for her looks. The devil agrees and stokes a bargain with angel, to get her beauty back, she must work with Lucifer for years. She will become a bounty hunter for demons who owe Lucifer their soul!
Sexy Jacque Toussant, demon from hell (literally) and Lucifer’s nephew, gets the task of training Angel. Jacque wants nothing to do with humans. He was a warrior not a trainer. He soon realizes that Angel is not a normal human so to speak and demons can’t control who they fall for. The action was non-stop, the passion was scorching, and the banter was set at a furious pace.
The only little down side was the need to describe in detail, what angel was wearing, (maybe because I’m not a fashion follower, I didnt understand the need to tell me all the designer’s names)
There are many secondary characters, so I’m hoping we get many many books.
Give this book a try, especially if you love your men alpha and your women kick ass fierce
