Can a bad witch go good in thirteen steps? Not if Lucifer has his way with her!
Amy Atwood is a witch. Not the harm-none kind…the Satan-worshipping, devil-made-me-do-it kind. But after catching Lucifer in a particularly wicked hex act with her goodie-two-shoes Wiccan sister, Amy does what every self-respecting witch would do. She pops a Dove chocolate in her mouth, ends her affair with the devil, and swears an oath never to use magic again.
She wants to be normal. Human. Even if it means no more fun—and she’s looking for a nice, normal guy to complement her new lifestyle. And ice-cream-loving firefighter Adam Foster looks like perfect hero material.
Lucifer, however, isn’t about to be nice about letting her go. Stalked by Satan, manipulated by the angel Gabriel—and surprised by Adam’s true identity—Amy finds herself up to her black hat in trouble of Biblical proportions…
Welcome to temptation. Sexy Lucifer is going to enchant you. The original Adam is going to charm you. And the angel Gabriel is going to scare your socks off!
A very cute and funny paranormal romance short story which features Lucifer and a very small part for the Archangel Gabriel. It was originally published as part of the Tickle My Fantasy anthology. At 88 pages, it is a very quick read; I read it in about an hour.
Amy, "Not one of those goodie-two-shoes Wiccans. No, I’m a Satan-worshiping, Devil-made-me-do-it witch" type witch, is now attending WA (Witches Anonymous) because Lucifer has betrayed her with her sister. She's being good now, normal, hmmm who'd of thought it possible? But she'll do almost anything for a Dove chocolate. She only has 3 weaknesses — "sinful men, dark chocolate and designer shoes".
Luc — Satan, Lucifer, the Devil and a host of other names — is trying to seduce Amy back into his arms and the dark side. He tells her he loves her. But he's the most famous tempter and liar of all ... right? He doesn't really ... nah. She's doing a good job of resisting him. Especially once Adam comes into her life.
Adam, Captain of the firefighter squad, hmm ... good looking and a fireman too. He really likes Amy but a) he doesn't know she's a witch and b) he doesn't want to be 'rebound guy'. Could he be the original Adam of Adam and Eve fame? No wonder Luc warned her away from a date with him to the fire station Halloween costume party.
A sampling of the humor:
"Just so you know … the Devil does not wear Prada. For business, he wears an Armani suit The Donald would kill for."
"...in my experience, men would believe anything you told them if it meant they’d get laid."
At the end there is an excerpt from ParaMatch.com by MK Mancos, The Ghost Shrink, the Accidental Gigolo & the Poltergeist Accountant by Vivi Andrews and Carolina Wolf by Sela Carsen.
Warning Spoiler Alert!!!
This has an implied "relationship continues" ending instead of a true HEA ending. Sorta like a couple walking off into the sunset, you assume but it is not stated.
