Welcome to Devil’s Paradise
It’s the hottest place to party on a Saturday night in the City of Angels.
The perfect venue for temptation. The ideal setting for sin. And it’s all mine.
Come through the doors of my West Hollywood nightclub. Glide right past the bouncers. My staff of demon bartenders will pour you a drink. Music pumps; a crowd writhes the dance floor. Join them if you wish. Or venture further, into the VIP lounge.
Because you are a very important person. And here in Devil’s Paradise, your deepest, darkest desires will finally be satisfied.
My empire of iniquity stretches across the country. In my clubs, I’ve corrupted thousands of souls. I’ve spent two hundred years studying humans in their greatest moments of weakness and desperation. Of fantasy and desire.
And I, Julian Ascher, am a connoisseur of pleasure.
Rarely do I lower myself to mere physical violence. But cross me, and you will regret it for the rest of your life, brief though that life will be. I can dematerialize at will. I can control a human mind in the blink of an eye, or wipe clean a human memory. An army of Gatekeeper demons awaits my command.
Vampires, werewolves, shifters…bring it on. Everyone’s got a hidden desire. Everyone’s got a price. Even tough guys with pointy teeth and overgrown fingernails.
I don’t just kill. I send my victims to the depths of damnation. I desecrate the sublime.
I’m the ultimate bad boy.
Come into Devil’s Paradise and I’ll show you a hell of a time.

About the Book:
Fledging guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair dares enter Devil’s Paradise nightclub on a mission—to retrieve the wayward Hollywood “It Boy” she’s assigned to protect. But she’s ambushed by the club’s owner, arch demon Julian Ascher. The most powerful demonic entity in Los Angeles, Julian is handsome as sin, a master of temptation who loves nothing more than corrupting pleasure–seeking humans. He won’t release the lost soul Serena is supposed to guard. Unless she accepts his dangerous wager…
After the disastrous way his human life ended, Julian vowed that no woman would get the better of him again. Yet this sexy–sweet angel, smelling of fresh ocean air and happiness, triggers centuries–old feelings. Now, their high–stakes game of seduction, where angels fall from grace and where demons fear to tread, will lead them either to an eternity in hell.or a deliciously hot heaven.
