Soul Thief. Bartender. Bounty Hunter.
When offered a job on the Holy Representative's special security team, bounty hunter Zyan Star couldn't be less interested - until she finds out it's her most hated of exes they're trying to track down. She's had over two hundred years to fantasize about revenge. She just didn't quite imagine it playing out alongside the emissaries of Heaven.
Working with Eli, the uptight angel who heads up the HR's security, is just about as much fun as Zy expects. He of course wants her ex brought to justice through legal avenues, which is very inconvenient and incredibly boring. As she dives into the case, however, she realizes there's more at stake than her plot for payback. Like, the free will of mankind, and preventing the minions of hell from taking over the sovereign dimensions.
This job is going to push her to the limits of her abilities, and there's just a slight problem with that: the powers she's suppressed for centuries after losing control of them are exactly the powers she's going to need to save the HR, end her millennia-old ex, and stop Lucifer's little plot to join the party and invade Earth.
Savior of humanity? Not so much. Or so she thought.
A sassy, sexy thrill ride of an urban fantasy by bestselling author A.A. Chamberlynn. Perfect for fans of Laurell K. Hamilton, Patricia Briggs, and Jim Butcher. An action-packed supernatural thriller with hefty doses of romance, humor, and magical badassery.

Martinis with thedevil
Martinis with the Devil
This was an okay read, though it could use a little more proofreading. Can be read as a stand alone. Lots of action with a cavalier protagonist. There were a few oversights. Zyan says Alexander could tell where she was after their first reunion because he fed off her blood, which undermines all decisions to physically include Zyan in Alexander’s arrest. Although Quinn successfully located Alexander with a finder spell, no further attempts to track him the same way is mentioned. For some reason, HR praises supernaturals for setting aside their racial differences when evidence indicates this was never a problem. Whether it’s abiding by Evo laws or rioting in protest of them, there weren’t any supernatural racial divisions. The racial divide is between supernaturals and humans, who just bombed them indiscriminately and were now persecuting them.
Loved this book. Can’t wait to read the next one. Great start to a series.
