Families can be hell. Being the youngest daughter of the Devil isn't all it's cracked up to be.
The days of teenage rebellion and vows of chastity made just to tick off her father are over, and now all Faith Bettincourt wants is a nice, quiet life.? Unfortunately, thanks to the unexpected arrival of her demonically-downsized sister, a ditzy succubus roommate, and dear old Dad himself, Faith's plans for a relaxing vacation spent watching reruns go up in flames. Now it's all Faith can do to keep the family reunion from Hell (literally) under wraps, and the angellically-inclined hottie across the hall from realizing there's something weird about his neighbor.? And, thankfully, it's working. Until an angelic stalker shows up in a bid to steal her powers and take over the world. Forget watching reruns.? With the way things are going, Faith will need the luck of the Devil just to survive until Monday.
 Luck of the Devil was a very fun book.  Faith, the devil's youngest daughter is caught up in family drama galore.  Her brother has turned her roommate into a succubus, her sister and brother-in-law show up to "visit" uninvited, and they are followed closely by mom and dear old dad, Lucifer himself.  There are a lot of things that go wrong in this family and Faith generally tries to stay out of it, but she gets dragged kicking and screaming into this one.

The romance in this one is cute and the characters are addictive.  Then it all hits the fan when someone with powers begins to stalk her and send threatening notes.  The family gears up to find out who is behind it all, and surprisingly, the hottie across the hall is on board to help in any way he can.  More family drama ensues and Faith tries desperately to keep her father from having a meltdown - because the city will be melted down right along with him.

Lots of surprising twists in the story line, and the action just keeps on coming.  Faith has a great sarcastic humor that I love to see in my romantic comedies, and Lucifer is just a complete riot!  I really enjoy when authors take larger than life figures and give a quirky personality to match.  I'll be reading the rest of the series over the next couple weeks.  They sound just as great.
