Title: Hell’s Mistress (Infernal Love #1)
Author: Viola Calvary
“I want to do so many things to you, but
tonight let me just taste that wildness buried in your soul.”
Cora wasn’t looking for love and she certainly wasn’t looking for Luc. Clever, devilishly handsome, and with dark eyes filled with wicked promises, his magnetism leaves her breathless. She can’t get him out of her thoughts no matter how much good sense tells her she should walk away.
Luc’s been looking for Cora. For longer than she could even imagine. Now that he’s found her, he’s not letting her go without a fight. Unfortunately someone with far more sadistic designs has found her, too, and is willing to start that fight.
Cora soon discovers that Luc is much more than he appears and that their bond transcends distance, space, and even death. She’s drawn into his world of gods, demons, and a struggle for power where the fate of it all rests squarely on her shoulders.
Steamy, sensual, and suspenseful this devilish romance is for mature audiences only.
I loved the way the author mixed so many different lores together. While Lucifer is a popular subject to touch on, the way that the author approached his character and Cora’s was unique. While Cora didn’t have her memory, we slowly started to learn more about her and will perhaps be given the key to unlock the rest later on in the series.
Vividly written scenes spelled out a war in the underworld between Lucifer and his clan and an attack from another rival group of demons. This in itself I thought was an interesting twist because I was definitely expecting this to be a classic good vs evil battle. The author has a way of keeping her readers on their toes so suspecting what comes next is a constant rollercoaster.
