Eons ago, the Devil fell from grace.
Now, he might be falling for her.

Grace Celestin is no stranger to sin. Working in a dive bar on Bourbon Street will expose a girl to a lot of nastiness. But when a disturbing prophecy leaves her with more questions than answers, the only man who can provide them is more than just a little sinful. He’s Lucifer, the Devil himself.

Luckily, the Devil’s in New Orleans—Hell’s on hiatus and the tide of damned souls has dried up, leaving him between jobs. From the moment he bumps into Grace Celestin, however, he thinks he may have found a new one. She’s being hunted, and not even voodoo can keep rogue angels off her trail.

More intriguing still is the fact that Grace isn’t just beautiful—it’s that unlike every other human who’s ever lived, Lucifer can’t read her soul. And if he wants answers, and his throne back, he’s going to have to help her get some answers of her own.

For the first time since he fell, the Devil has been drawn to the light. And Grace, despite all she knows, finds herself tempted by the darkness.

My Two Cents

3 "The Devil's in the Details" stars

Lucifer: a male who finally grew tired of the status quo when a human woman made him feel for the very first time.

Grace: a woman who didn’t know her own worth until she was being hunted by someone intent on killing her. For years she was numb to everything, until Lucifer lit the spark to break her heart wide open.

I think I would have enjoyed it more if there was more in the way of character depth. While I liked what I was given, I knew there was so much more below the surface. And with the way this author writes, I know she could have brought it through.

Very well-written and descriptive with dynamic characters and steamy beginnings.

The Author

I was born on Friday the 13th, but I always believed in making my own luck and writing my own story. I'm a firm believer that love really does conquer all, but sometimes you have to take the long way around to get there.

I love a good gin and tonic to wind me down or wind me up, depending on the occasion.

If you’d like to get in touch, I'm always plugged in!


  1. This sounds like my kind of read. I'm sorry it didn't work as well as you felt it might though.

    1. It was still a good read. If you read it, I hope you enjoy it more than I did :)

  2. This really does sound like a book that would need character depth and development with the way you described each character. Great review, though!

  3. Th e title alone on this one has me intrigued haha Definitely going to add this to my list, it sounds wonderful! I do love books that are well described.

    Great review darling!
