"A wild ride of fun, fantasy and romance!" - J.R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author
"A hilarious underworld romp filled with mayhem, sass, and romance to die for." - Katie MacAlister, New York Times bestselling author
Justine Bennett's life isn't the one you'd want for all eternity, which is exactly how long she's going to have to live it.
She's the sword-wielding Guardian for the Goblet of Eternal Youth, which is currently masquerading as a shape-shifting espresso machine in a fancy New York City condo. Being an immortal badass in the City that Never Sleeps sounds exciting, but Justine hasn't gotten to behead anyone in centuries, the celibacy oath she took two hundred years ago is getting to her, and her dead mom is being hotly pursued by a lovesick Satan.
But then Derek LaValle, a no-carb pretzel mogul cursed to die in a week, shows up at Justine's door to behead her and steal the Goblet. If he fails, both he and his twin will succumb to the curse, so this handsome hunk of deliciousness is not going to let anything stop him. He's charming, tempting-as-hell, and extremely determined, all the things that Justine needs to amp up her life.
Unfortunately, if Justine makes even one mistake, her mom will end up as Satan's love pancake, and her own soul will be destined for an eternity in the Chamber of Unspeakable Horrors.
Derek, however, can't afford to fail either, which means one of them needs to die. But when high-octane attraction blooms between them, killing each other no longer seems like a fantastic option. With such high stakes, they better figure it out fast, or Satan dating her mom will become the least of their worries.
About the Author: S.A. Bayne (aka Stephanie Rowe) is a gift to the universe, at least according to her dogs, and everyone knows dogs are world-class judges of people. She was taught to play by the rules, but after suffering numerous apoplectic breakdowns, she realized that she had to ditch the rules, figure out her own way to live, and then turn that into a high-octane, irreverent, unpredictable-as-hell, paranormal that will make your day so much better just by reading it. And yes, she is also New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Stephanie Rowe, winner of the 2018 RITA® Award for Best Paranormal Romance. Because she's nifty like that.

So funny and sexy
This book is totally different from what I have read prior for this author. The characters are funny and I laughed out loud so many times. It is a wonder my family didn’t ask what was going on. Justine and Derek have such a rapport from the first time they meet. It is so sweet and sexy. I love Theresa, Justine’s friend. She is so freaking funny. I can’t wait to see where this book leads.
OMG what a great start to a new series this was a hoot and a half with loads of fun and twist and turns to be had. The characters are well developed and engaging with a storyline that kept on given. Can’t wait for the next one.
I really enjoyed this story. The characters were hilarious and the situations they get themselves had me laughing out loud. Justine has the world on her shoulders and still has a great sense of humor and love for her friends and family. And poor Derek, everyone he knows thinks he is crazy. Add in the crazy characters that come with these two, and you have the recipe for an amazing read! Cannot wait to read more! I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
