One of the top supermodels in the world, Angel, lives the life of the rich and fabulous, until a heinous car accident mars her face. After thirteen surgeries and losing everything she deemed important, she seeks out the dark forces to salvage her life. Angel decides to conjure the Devil for help, making a deal to recover her beauty. In exchange for his help, Lucifer forces her to hunt supernatural renegades, which have eluded the pits of Hell. In her quest to find beauty and get out of her contract with Lucifer, Angel stumbles upon love in the arms of a demon.
Angel had it all until a drunk driver stole her life. She walked away with her world turned upside down from the accident. Once a supermodel, whose face graced the covers of magazines worldwide, not she is scarred beyong recognition. After talking with every known surgeon throughout the world she decides to make a deal with the devil.
Through her bloodline Angel is a true Voodoo Princess. She conjures up Lucifer himself and asks for a deal....one that lands her in hell literally. While there she runs into a demon named Jacque who is supposed to be her trainer. Jacque makes Angel's blood boil in all the wrong ways. No matter how she tries to escape him, something seems to be pushing them together. But is it possible that her vanity could cost her all those she loves and even all her new friends as well?
The concept in this book is amazing! I love New Orleans and the magical mystery of it. The allure there is amazing to us that loves the paranormal. On that level you will not be disappointed here. There are yummy vamps, demons, fae, demons and even some scarier ghouls and demonic creatures. Angel is a kick -butt strong female who doesn't even realize how powerful she is simply being her. It takes a lot to grow and become confident and comfortable in your own skin. There are several references here to some hip-hop music and that was cool as well. I happen to love all the ones the author picked out! Lastly I loved the humor thrown in, especially those comments by Laurent. He killed me with some of those lines. I would read further novels in this series...they have a lot of promise 4 stars
