Plot Summary

Steal souls. Live in hell. Never die.

In a city infested with psychotic fairies and run by sadistic vampire mafiosi, life as a soul-sucking succubus rarely involves lacy lingerie, hot guys or great sex.

Instead, Jade must spend her nights seducing gangsters and murderers, or simpering as a trophy girl for hell's minions.

So when she discovers a forbidden ritual that promises to break hell's thrall and set her free, she's got nothing to lose, even if it involves seducing the four most repellent souls in town.

But when you're cheating hell, there's always a catch...

Succubi and incubi tempt mortals with erotic rapture; vampiric mob families war over territory and women; and fairies are dying of an unknown cause. Succubus Jade and incubus Rajahni Seth, both in thrall to a demon lord for 1,000 years, discover a way to escape, but as they compete to collect the soul needed for their separate spells, they discover they're falling in love.

The pages heat up instantly as these two intense beings finds themselves uncontrollable attracted to each other, physically and emotionally. They also discover a secret to end their enslavement, but there's a hitch. Of the souls each needs to capture, one soul they both need to obtain their freedom.
