ROFLOL - I remember reading "Date with Death" and thinking how cool it would be to read more about Lucifer - well here he is :) Well more like here's his daughter - but he was in this book a lot more than the other one, and he hasn't changed a bit - well maybe he's a little softer when it comes to his daughter - but he's still the same old jerk that has you ROFLOL when it comes to Auric :)
This was a great book - really looking forward to starting Snowballs in Hell now -
This book starts off with Muriel - or better known as "Satana Muriel Baphomet, The Princess of Hell - or Lucifer's Daughter - the white sheep of the family :)
Muriel is defiantly the white sheep in the family. With her sisters being half succubi, and her being part human, there is a big difference. Muriel is a good girl, and by being a good girl, she is making Lucifer look like a bad parent. His minions in Hell are laughing at him. There have even been rumors he is no longer fit to be the Father of All Sin, since he can't even control his own daughter. HA!
And now at age 23, still a virgin, and saving herself for True Love, Lucifer is really on her case about getting some kind of Sin on.
As Muriel left her apartment to go to work, the wind picked up and started blowing her hair all around her face. She ran into a tall stranger, but before she could move her hair out of her face, he left. Being the owner of her own bar, Nexus, she met 3 new strangers as they came in - Muriel recognized the gruff voice of the one male as the one who she ran into on the street. Trying to ignore him, and his friends... and all they want is a beer -
That's how we met Auric - the tall dark and .. what is he?? He's not a demon? Not a shifter .. hum....
In this story, we watch how Muriel lets her guard down. She has been targeted for death many times, since she is Lucifer's daughter. But she's a strong fighter, and all of a sudden her powers are starting to get stronger...
When Auric encounters a demon in order to "save" Muriel, she sits back and enjoys the show of him swinging his blessed sword.
Things start to heat up. The Demon's keep showing up and Auric keeps trying to protect her. And their feelings start to heat up a little more with each glance ...
Great story. I laughed a lot - it was such a different type of story from those I usually read. It was refreshing to have something new.

Holy Cow what a cliffhanger! I love it! This book made it into my favorite's folder - always up for a good Manage reading :)
So much has happened in Hell, and Muriel's life is turning in all sorts of crazy directions.
First of all - we start off hot and heavy with Muriel and our favorite Fallen Angel Auric -
See Muriel has been having really horrible dreams since that last night a month ago with the hooded evil thing. Night after night after night she wakes up screaming and in pain, and only Auric's familiar hands help coax her back into reality - brought on by a hot and sweaty morning nookie :) After that, it's easy for Muriel to pretend it's over with and everything will be ok now
That is until the Demon's start attacking her again. For a month, everything was quiet but on all of the nights for her to walk home from work by herself, she gets attacked - but more than a few demons. She uses up her magic to kills them all, and falls down drained when she sees a hooded figure coming towards her.
When she wakes up, Auric is furious that the attacks are starting up again, he's stressed out about Muriel's nightmares and flinching everything she see's someone in a hood or hears the word Master, and he doesn't know what to do - so he goes to hell and talks to Lucifer - together they gang up on Muriel and force her to see reasoning about going to see Lucifer's Manages -
The Manages find a geas in her - which is a spell or a curse that compels a person to act a certain way or experience things.
So one of the Manages tell her that the only way to get rid of the geas is to overpower it with her magic - and she needs a LOT of magic at one time - and just one Consort (i.e. Auric) wouldn't be enough - since her magic is based on her orgasms she needed helping getting more than a few at the same time..
Now it's Muriel's turn to get Furious! how could anyone even THINK she should be with another man - let alone how could Auric push her towards it? Didn't he love her??
Being the Princess of Hell, she really had her priorities messed up. Here she should have been rejoicing the orgies, but she was terrified of losing Auric. So her final answer was "no"
Waking up to Muriel's screaming nightmare again has Auric begging her to reconsider taking David as a second - David is Auric's best friend, and not to mention he cares for Muriel, so it only made sense to have him there with them.
But Muriel was still stubborn and refused to share herself with someone other than Auric.
Auric needs to go out of town and leaves David with Muriel. Of course Muriel is upset about no one thinking she could take care of herself. She doesn't understand that Auric is acting out of love for her instead of possessiveness.
But when David and Muriel head home from the Bar, they get attacked again. And again Muriel is left drained of her magic. and with Auric out of town... what should Muriel do??
David and her sister Bambi have a really good heart to heart talk with Muriel and help her see things a little differently. So she agrees to the Manage in order to get rid of the Geas that is causing her to fear everything.
When Lucifer showed up in her bedroom announcing it was snowing in hell - the term "when hell freezes over" became literal. and everyone who promised they'd do something "when hell freezes over" was in BIG TROUBLE ....Oh wow this book is awesome!!!! I loved it! So many feelings and passion - and of course Lucifer is as funny as ever in this one :) Lol I think I love his character the best in the book - well of close to Muriel - I love how she's her own personal cheerleader when she talks out everything in her own mind.
The book leaves off in a really intense part - well the Epilogue does anyways - I'm really anxious for the next book though.
This is one series I hope Eve Langlais can expand for a few more books :) I don't think I'll get tired of this life :) Even my husband thought the fact of reading about Lucifer's Daughter was a great idea for a story :)

Awe - I can't believe it's over!! I want 3 more books of the Princess of Hell! Lol
This was my favorite of the 3 books (and I determined that before the four-some :)
There was so much humor in this, I can't even count my LOL moments. There were so many :) Between Lucifer, and Muriel's every day chaos going on in her head - lol I just love the way she thinks, and her mind gets off the subject and goes towards a totally different topic for no reason :)
The book starts off where the last one left off - Muriel's mom (Gaia, aka - Mother Earth ) interrupts dinner and announces that Muriel's pregnant - and of course, Muriel tries to kill her :)
Muriel doesn't want to believe that her mother of all people was right, so she goes over to her father's Mage (Nefertiti) - the one that has been helping her with her nympho magic. Just before she gets there, a big group of demon's attack, and she uses up her magic to kill them.. but then another group of demons show up,and she has no choice but to turn tail and run.. but she runs right into .. of all things, a Vampire - and this vampire, as sexy as he is - is also scary, vampires are dangerous , but luckily for Muriel, he wants to protect her. Her empty magic had somehow called him to her. After he kicks Demon butt, he gives her a kiss, and although her moral side of her knows it's wrong, her magic doesn't want to let go of him..
But just in time for David and Auric to pop in, she gets her head back in the game and off he goes...
Roflol - back at Nefertiti's house, she has naked men all over her house and with Muriel walking in with Auric's hands over her eyes and David growling at everyone in their way - lol but they do run off to speak with a few of the men to get some pointers to help please Muriel a little differently. After all, when Muriel's magic is stronger, it makes their whole family stronger - awe -
But she confirms the pregnancy and tells her that the daughter Muriel is carrying could destroy the world. She has so much power inside Muriel right now, even though she is only the size of her thumb.
but this child is growing very fast and her pregnancy will be very short.
So Muriel has a lot to think about - save the baby and kill the world, or kill the baby and save the world... ha ya - right, no pressure.
So now we're dealing with Muriel's pregnancy, her new Vampire admirer (whom David and Auric don't even know about yet) Her mother, and the evil master that was controlling Gabrielle in the last book -
With all these things going on - it's no wonder why Muriel needs to re-charge her magic so often *yummy*
Great story with lots of twists and turns and surprises , and the fun humor is just the added bonus :)
Who knows, maybe we'll get lucky and Eve Langlais will write about "Lucifer's granddaughter" next :) Or maybe and his life with Mother Nature – the part he doesn’t remember.
