She's A Hot Demon On The Run From Hell-- Which Isn't Easy To Do In Heels.
Once upon a time, Jezebel was a powerful succubus, capable of seducing men and sucking out their souls. But that was before Hell put a bounty on her head. Now her only chance to escape a fate far worse than death is to live as a mortal, losing herself in a sea of unfamiliar humanity, in a place where sinners walk hand-in-hand with saints--a place like Belle's strip club in New York City.
Working as an exotic dancer is a piece of cake for a former demon who once specialized in sex. Taking money from men? Please. It's like leading lawyers to the Lake of Fire. Plus the lingerie is great. But she hadn't counted on meeting sexy Paul Hamilton, a man haunted by his past. Good-bye, succubus; hello, lovestruck. Learning all about how complicated--and pleasurable--love can be, Jezebel thinks she's turned her back on Hell.
But Hell hasn't stopped looking for her. The secrets Jezebel holds are the most dangerous of all, the kind every demon in the Underworld would do their worst to protect. Demons are closing in, which is enough to make Jezebel shiver in her G-string. But it's her love for Paul that's going to have deadly consequences...

- VERY Original. 4.5 stars
- January 15, 2007
- By Wooddavis (California)
Okay, first the reason why you see five stars, but I'm stating 4.5 stars in the heading. The end of the book was cruel, heartless, demonic. No, the story ended just fine (spoiler, sorry), but... the author put a teaser for the next book after the ending, whetting my appetite for more. Even that would have been fine IF the next book was available, but nooo, it doesn't come out until November. Okay, whining pout over.
When I state that Hell's Belles is original, it is Lucifer's own truth. The heroine (Jezebel) is a Demon from Hell itself, fighting for her very identity. She is never apologetic about her demonic personality, and it comes through loud and clear throughout the book. Evil thoughts are "über cool". Giving a girl flowers is nice because "they die so quickly, which is thoughtful of them". Born and raised in hell with more than 4000 years of experience killing men with Lust (yup, capital "L"), she enjoys walking her victims into the pits of hell and watching them burn, get boiled in oil, whatever punishment fits their crimes. She is also the most likeable and morally honest character I have read this year. Figure that one out.
All the basic storylines are listed in the reviews, and still you won't be able to put this story together without reading it for yourself. It is exotic, erotic, dramatic, comedic, a love story, a morality tale, a thriller, a paranormal. Despite my first paragraph pout, it is a complete story, not a cliffhanger - a very large plus for me.
Not for the young or those who are unable to look at religion from different perspectives, but those who like an excellent, sexy tale that is outside the norm, this book is VERY HIGHLY recommended. I had a grand time reading this novel, thank you, Ms. Kessler.
