After being found back on Earth and sentenced to eternity in a fiery prison down in Hell, the Demon, Axelle, suddenly finds herself pulled out of her misery by the Devil himself. He gives her a body, a crappy job and an even crappier apartment, but she doesn’t really know why. All she knows is that she was taken out of one prison and put in another. One that makes her fire cell all the more appealing.
Her duller than dull job is made that much worse by hours of boredom–sheer torture for a hell-raiser such as herself–not to mention the colleagues she has to deal with, but then as the Devil, Luc, starts to take an unusual interest in her she starts to see the pluses of her existence.
Luc puts Axelle through a series of tests to see if she is worthy of an honor he has searched centuries for. No one has even come close to giving him what he wants, but when Axelle starts to defy the odds that are stacked so vehemently against her, his feelings towards her become more than just about the end result. It catches him off guard and his self-induced celibacy towards her makes his struggle even worse for a creature of no restraint.
When Axelle is finally told why she has endured these trials and what is yet to come, her loyalty to her creator waivers and while he struggles to keep his hold on her, she has other ideas that don’t include Luc and his plans. Will she manage to escape the pits of hell for an unheard of third time? Or will she be stuck in the Devil’s idea of happily-ever-after?
