4.5 Stars for A Demon and His Witch by Eve Langlais

Hotly Recommended! By Reviewer Lexxie
Winner of Risqué Reviews Top Pick Award



Burned at the stake as a witch, thinking her boyfriend will help her out and realizing he is behind it all just before the flames reach her, Ysabel makes a deal with the devil. She will work for Lucifer in exchange for having the souls of those who had her burned captured in the deepest pits of Hell for all eternity. Ysabel still hates what was done to her, and she has the inability to trust men! Even demons are afraid of her, but when her ex manages to escape
from hell, she is paired off with a hot and sexy demon do capture him – and sparks are flying even if they both deny it at first. Welcome to Hell where you’re screwed if you do and damned if you don’t. And just so you know, Lucifer has a special spot reserved for you…


As usual, Eve Langlais delivers a hot quick read in which she generously uses humor.A Demon and His Witch hit exactly the right spot for me. Remy and Ysabel chase an escaped soul through Hell and on Earth, and even when they find him, they have trouble sending him back. Now, that’s conflict. Add to it that each second they spend together is a little hotter, containing more chemistry than the last. The strong characterization works with the conflict to make this an interesting read.

Ysabel is both strong and independent, and at the same time a little old-fashioned in that she is used to a man giving her orders. She fights that part of herself constantly, and even Lucifer has to, grudgingly, respect her for it. However, when Ysabel’s ex escapes, something happens to Ysabel--leaving Lucifer with barely enough time to explain it to her before it starts. She has to go through excruciating pain every day until she has recaptured the damned soul.

Remy is the devil Lucifer has decided to pair off with Ysabel. Of course, Lucifer being who he is, he has ulterior motives. Ysabel has never trusted or been with another man since she’s arrived in Hell almost 500 years ago. Well, Lucifer thinks it’s about time that changed.

Between the humor, the enigma of how a soul was able to get out of the most secure prison in Hell, and the hot sex scenes, I was a very happy reader. If you like to read books that make you laugh and while making you all hot and bothered, you should try A Demon and His Witch or any other Eve Langlais book. Hotly recommended.
