In the lusty humidity of the Deep South, among the neon lights of Vegas, and the glitz of high-fashion, demon slayers are the new sexy. . .
Hot! By Kathy Love
At Hot! Magazine, the devil really does wear Prada. When the CEO is an actual demon and the mail room guys are undercover demon slayers, it’s not beyond the realm of possibility for an up-and-coming photographer and a model possessed by much more than a sweet tooth to fall in love.
What Slays In Vegas by Angie Fox
When a sexy succubus comes up against a fearless demon slayer intent on killing her boss, a truly wild Vegas night turns into a quickie wedding. But in a city where anything goes, a demon slayer wedding a succubus is strictly forbidden. Which doesn’t mean either is rushing to jump out of the marriage bed.
The Bride Wore Demon Dust by Lexi George
He’s perfection in a tuxedo—more so out of it—and on a mission to protect his Alabama gal from the mysterious mayhem intent on her destruction. But the bride is a spunky steel magnolia with special powers of her own, determined to drop-kick evil forces across the state line and give her slayer a run for his money.
Quick & Dirty: Three light-hearted reads that are good for any day of the week.
“HOT!” by Kathy Love
This story takes place in the brutal world of high fashion publishing in the otherwise beautiful present day New York City. A one-time small town girl from Kansas, Addy Wellmeyer, now known as Ava Wells, has sold her soul to a demon in exchange for a promise of fame and fortune. Now she just wishes for the simple things in life. Charlie Bowen is still that same small town boy from Ohio, willing to risk it all for a chance at his own fame and fortune as a high profile fashion photographer. But little does he know that he may very well be risking everything to work for these particular “people”. He is a little more talented than he thought, and the world is quite a bit stranger than even he dreamed. Cute premise, cuter story… wondering if there are more.
“What Slays in Vegas” by Angie Fox
This story takes place in current day Las Vegas and has a rather human like premise; basically What Happens in Vegas meets CSI. You see, succubus Shiloh and undercover demon slayer Damien meet each other in a casino and end up married after a night of sex, drinks and rock and roll. When reality sets in the next morning, neither can remember what happened that night, but both are quite obviously wearing rings on their fingers. For entirely different reasons, neither of them are supposed to take on a spouse, or have any deeper feelings for anyone, much less each other. After the truth is revealed, Damien feels he must find a way to satisfy both his job and his soul, by taking down the demons he was after while saving his half-breed wife.
There is, I am assuming, some conceptual tie-ins with the rest of Angie Fox’s Accidental Demon Slayer series, but it is not necessary to have any back story to enjoy this novella. And I certainly enjoyed this story.
“The Bride Wore Demon Dust” by Lexi George
Welcome to Hannah, Alabama. Your average sleepy little town…..or is it? Bunny Nicole Raines is a small town librarian with a name that belongs in the lineup of your closest gentlemen’s club who suddenly lands a man straight out of every woman’s personal wet dreams. When a whirlwind courtship leads to a perfect wedding, Bunny thinks she has it all…until something happens during her reception.
Rafe Dalvahni is a groom with a rather large secret, one he’s even been keeping from his bride. You see, he’s an immortal demon slayer from another planet. And, when he has to fight a demon to protect his bride, well, you could say the cat gets let out of the bag. Needless to say, the bride isn’t all that happy, and Rafe must spend the rest of the story convincing her that he is best bet. That is, if he can convince himself first.
I definitely felt completely out of the loop while reading this novella. I am left with more than a few questions about her species, concepts, settings, and the all around plotlines. Maybe, reading the previous story, Demon Hunting in Dixie, would shed a bit of light upon the subject. I think I’d like to revisit this story after reading the first one. Maybe I would like it more.
