Worse, since her return she's started seeing demons lurking in the corners of every proper parlor. Her soul is off-limits to them, but they don't make for comfortable company.
Until incubus James Grieve strides naked onto a ballroom floor and asks her to dance. Miss Greening has nothing to lose, so she and her incubus are soon indulging in any number of passionate sins and pleasurable vices. Until James develops a most inconvenient soul of his own...

Thank you to the author for a interesting good read where the reader will get a good fantasy story about 'Hell.'
Paranormal historical romance?! Sign me up! I enjoyed the first story about a rake-ish Lord that died in battle falling for his demoness torturer in Hell. However, I really really liked the second story about the same Lord's ex-fiancee falling for an incubus. I don't want to spoil anything but I just really love how both Virginia and James group into their love. The ending is heart-warming.
Composed of two stories, both of them with lots of explicit sex that’s fairly easy to skip if that’s your fancy to follow the story instead. I liked the second story in particular, because feminist and a recognition of introverts vs extroverts needs. Plus it was fun.
