The Devil's Daughter

My new book, The Devil’s Daughter, has just been released, and as its title suggests, the heroine, Lucy, is in fact the devil’s daughter. She’s selfish, conceited and she has never felt the least bit of compassion for any other soul – human or not.

But just because she’s never felt it before now, does that mean she’s incapable of feeling it? She’s been raised to think so yet there’s something inside her that wonders; something that has led her to the deal she’s made with her father.

To win her freedom from Hell, all she needs to do is claim the soul of Jed Caine, his crazy sister-in-law, and the baby she’s carrying. Easy as proverbial pie, right?

Well. . . maybe not.

Jed is reluctant to let Lucy into his life. She might be sexy as hell, but she’s not the type of woman he’s looking for. He needs someone who’s strong, sensible and ready to work - and Lucy is obviously none of those things. But given his sister-in-law’s present condition, no other person in town will come near them, so Lucy is his only option.

Things get off to a bad start and quickly get worse. The harder Lucy tries to wear Jed down, to seduce his soul out from under him, the harder Jed resists. He wants her, he wants her bad, but he wants so much more than just her body. As for Lucy. . .the more time she spends with Jed, the more confused she becomes until she’s no longer certain what it is that she actually wants.

And when push comes to shove, what Lucy wants most could be her own undoing.

I have posted an excerpt on my website and hope you'll enjoy getting to meet Lucy and Jed.
