"Hot" in So I Married a Demon Slayer (prequel novella, 8/2011)
Georgia has had a crush on Tristan ever since she began working for the magazine as Finola's assistant. Now that she is working directly with Tristan, she finds herself uncomfortable in his presence. Every time he seems to be flirting with her, she assumes that he's doing it for his own cruel amusement—to see how much he can embarrass her. She knows in her heart that a sexy, handsome guy like Tristan would never look twice at his chubby assistant.
Meanwhile, down in the mail room, agents of the Demon Intelligence Agency (DIA) are on the job, getting ready to stop Satan's attempt to take over the world via the fashion industry. The DIA is "a government agency that was established decades ago to locate and counteract demonic activity." (p. 247) Eugene, a DIA agent disguised as the mail room manager, assigns Gabriel to get Georgia on their side, but Gabriel just can't seem to make a proper connection. In fact, Georgia appears to be falling for Tristan—and falling really hard and fast. To make matters worse, Tristan seems to be falling for her as well! What's going on here?
The story follows the couple as they fall in lust and discover that love conquers all. In a second story line, Finola's life takes some twists and turns that will definitely surprise you if you've read the first two books. This book is typical of the series: paper-thin characters and a predictable story line. But if you enjoyed the first two books, you'll love this one, too.
This may be the final book in the series; certainly, it is the final book to be set at Hot! Magazine. But never fear…Dippy, the bichon frise hellhound, is still on Satan's side, and he's looking to take a few steps up on Hell's ladder of success so perhaps a future book will take a look at Dippy's love life.
Each story follows one couple as they meet, fall in love, and run afoul of Finola before eventually achieving their HEA. Throughout each story, Tristan plots against Finola in the hope that he can convince Satan to let him take over the magazine. The demon hunters are supporting characters in the stories—support, that is, for the unlucky human characters who find themselves under Finola's devilish control.
PREQUEL NOVELLA: "Hot"
Publisher's blurb: At Hot! Magazine, the devil really does wear Prada. When the CEO is an actual demon and the mailroom people are undercover demon slayers, it's not beyond the realm of possibility for an up-and-coming photographer and a model possessed by much more than a sweet tooth to fall in love.
