Hi, I’m Muriel, the only white sheep in a sea of black ones, and a virgin to boot. I am determined to wait for love, but my dad, more commonly known as Lucifer, just wants me to stop being an embarrassment. I’m hoping the hunk that I met in my bar will turn out to be the one–just looking at him makes my insides melt like marshmallows over the coals of hell, but trusting is hard when it seems everyone I get close to ends up trying to kill me.
Not only am I dealing with an extreme case of lust, there’s a new threat in hell, one my dad says to ignore. Something easier said than done since it seems everywhere I turn demons are trying to kill me. But I’m okay with that, because one thing I’ve learned being a princess of hell is that sometimes I have to grab a demon by the horns and slap it around a bit.
A rebellion in hell, demon assassins and scorching kisses, could my life get any more interesting?
Muriel is the daughter on Satan. Its not easy being the princess of hell. She is still a virgin and her favorite color is pink. Unlike most parents, Muriel and her father fight about how well behaved she is and how she makes her dad look bad in front of the other demons. But no matter what she still loves her Daddy. Her dad wants her deflowered but she wants to fall in love first. Its hard to find love when your father is Satan and she doesn't like the typical nice guys. She wants her man to be a tough, bad boy type who knows how to kick some ass. Then Auric walks into her life. He fits all her criteria but little does she know that he is keeping a very bad secret that can mean life or death.
This is another great story by Eve. Its shorter than a novel but it still flows nicely. I didn't feel rushed and I still was able to make the connection with the characters which is hard sometimes in a shorter book or novella. The world building was done with finesse and didn't seem overly complicated. True to reputation Eve makes this another hot read and I had a smile on my face for the majority of the book. I love the humor she puts into her books.
I would recommend this book to paranormal fans and its definitely for adults because of the hotness factor. The only warning I have is that you need to be able to look at religion with a little bit of a sense of humor. If your in the mood for something hot, fun and quick then you need to read this book. I honestly enjoyed it. I will definitely be looking out for her next book in this series "Snowballs in Hell".
