But she's tricked by a treacherous sorcerer, and now she's forced into a darker kind of slavery. She's a succubus, with a powerful demon lord her master for a thousand years.
At least, that's what he thinks. Jade accepts no man's domination, least of all a demon's. She's determined to thwart her fate.
But she's yet to discover the true meaning of demon thrall...
Live in hell.
Live in hell.
In a city infested with psychotic fairies and run by sadistic vampire mafiosi, life as a soul-sucking succubus rarely involves lacy lingerie, hot guys or great sex.
Enslaved by a demon lord, Jade must spend her nights seducing vampire gangsters and shapeshifting thugs. After two hundred years as a succubus, she burns for freedom and longs to escape her brutal life as a trophy girl for hell's minions.
Then, she meets Rajah, an incubus who touches her heart and intoxicates her senses. Rajah shares the same bleak fate as she, and yearns just as desperately for freedom. But the only way for Jade to break her bonds is to betray Rajah—and doom the only man she's ever loved to a lifetime in hell.
