Series: Devil May Care #1
Published by Julie Kenner on April 12, 2014
As the second son of Satan, Nicholas Velnias is certain he has no chance of stepping into his father’s shoes. But when his older brother fails to win the keys to hell, Nick is suddenly the favored son. And the task to prove his worth is so simple he knows that he can’t fail—all he has to do is steal the soul of a woman. How hard can that be?
After all, Nick steals bits of soul every day, infusing them into canvas and pigment to add that panache to the masterpieces that have brought him fame and fortune.
But when Nick meets Delilah Burnett, the innocent daughter of a preacher who’s bad for the devil’s business, all hell breaks lose. Because while Nick may have set out to steal the girl’s soul, in the end she’s the one who steals his heart.
Nick is a famous artist known for his breath-taking portraits that seem to glow with life and vitality. His secret? He is the son of Satan himself and infuses each portrait with a small piece of the subject’s soul. When Nick’s father appears and offers him the chance to inherit Hell itself, Nick is torn by his desire to rule Hell and his desire for Delilah – the woman whose soul he must destroy entirely.
This was a fun, quick read that explores love and morality while reveling in the sensuality that comes with finding someone who understands who you are and what you want from life.
