Hell hath no fury like a succubus scorned
Jesse may no longer be a succubus, but she’s got a Hell of a past. She wants to come clean about her infernal history with Paul Hamilton, her white-knight-in-training lover, except he’d never believe her. Just like some people are worth being (shudder) monogamous for, some secrets are worth keeping. So Jesse keeps mum—until three of her former associates strong-arm her into returning to the Pit. Now, unless Jesse faces off against the King of Hell, she’ll lose Paul’s immortal soul. If she’d known love was this tough, she never would have turned her back on Lust…
The Hell On Earth series takes a more serious turn in this book.
It’s a better book than Hell’s Belles in many respects. TRTH relies much less on the strength and appeal of Jezebel’s voice than HB did, which also makes it a book that is much more rereadable than TRTH.
The pacing is better, giving the reader space to breathe and to make the connections that turn TRTH into something more than a funny, romp book.
But for all that Jackie has improved as a writer, TRTH just didn’t have the spark Hell’s Belles did.
The Road To Hell rates 4 out of 5.
PS Jackie sent the ARC to me.
