I’m going to be honest here and say that even if I’ve heard talks about Zoe Archer before, I never took the chance and read up on her or her books. After reading the blurb for this book I jumped at the opportunity to read it and gave it a chance. I am glad that I did as I’ve found another series to follow. :DThe Hellraisers are definitely a good addition to the PNR world. This group of outcasts has made their mark in the 18th century doing as they pleased and raising havoc in their time. These guys sort of remind of the men from the movie Tombstone, always looking for fun, lay and adventure. Well, in Devil’s Kiss adventure is exactly what they find, adventure to hell if their souls are not saved. A battle between human’s fight against evil.

The Hellraisers, including James Sherbourne, Earl of Whitney aka Whit, have stumbled upon a ruin. By poking around, they had accidentally released evil to the world and in the process, receiving power in trade for their souls.

Whit is one hero I’d like to tame for myself. He is a gambler with nothing to lose and in the game for the sheer excitement of it. And Zora, a Gypsy girl, in spite of the world she lives in is a very liberated woman. She will speak her mind, fight for what she believes in and ends up being a kickass girl..My kind of heroine. The combination of these two is amazing, how they battle evil to save Whit’s soul and the people around them is admirable. Though, it had a slow start, their journey is full of action, surprises and some humor.

The side characters have also made their mark. A ghost named Livia, a priestess who helped the couple was funny and witty. I’d like to see her again in the upcoming books. It will be interesting to see what Ms. Archer has in store for us as she writes about each Hellraiser.

I recommend this book to any PNR lover who’d like to take a break from the vamps, shifters, etc. I cannot wait for the next installment of this series.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
