Coming in at only 129 pages, it would be fair to say that Hells Angel is more of a novella, than it is a novel. The story is essentially about the coming together of Kellah Slater and Detective Hunter, which makes more of a dark romance than a straight up urban fantasy. Kellah is a demon who has been cast out of hell and as punishment is forced to exist on earth. Kellah sees hell as home and so little things like the fact that it is always cold on earth in comparison to hell irks her continually. Kellah for the large part only sees the evil in humanity, the constant desire to consume and rob each other blind. She makes her living as a jewel thief and lives in what is essentially a flop house.

Detective Hunter is a very troubled man. He was on the job when his partner was suddenly killed right in front of him. Shortly there after, when he enters an alleyway to help what he perceives to be a woman in need, he loses his wallet. Using his identification, someone goes to his home and kills his wife and daughter in cold blood. When he confronts the person in his home, despite his best efforts, he barely walks away with his life because the person he is battling is immortal.

Much of this story involves Hunter attempting to find a way to arrest Kellah for various crimes. Each time they are anywhere near each other; however, they both feel a strong sexual attraction. Kellah is disgusted by this because it does not fall under the guidelines of appropriate demon behaviour. For his part, Hunter is equally disgusted. In the background there is a serial killer, murdering women and Hunter has become the prime suspect. Someone on the police force is determined to make sure that he is put out of commission. In the end the question becomes can Kellah look past her demon nature to admit her love and can Hunter figure out what has been a long misunderstanding to admit his love.
