By fang and by blade, it's a love match made in heaven, or in this case, hell.

More matchmaking from Lucifer means more fun for me, and I really do enjoy this series. Here, Lucifer manipulates the situation to get one gruff Scottish vampire fixed up with a beautiful, kickazz lamia demon. Able to shift into half-snake/half woman, Aella wields a double-edged battle axe and tongue, while the surly vamp wields some fang and a large, lusty sword, of a sort.
What I liked about this vamp is that Niall isn't obvious hero material. Really, you could say that about any character in this series. They are over the top, shameless, and even bloodthirsty characters, but Niall especially stands out with his bearded hairiness, dirty and in serious need of a bath, and even when cleaned up, he's not handsome, but he is fearsome and rugged. He also needs a kick start to the arse in order to get out of his rut. With Aella, this stubborn Scot has met a woman who gives as good as she gets.
Centuries of moping and drinking are upset when a yellow-eyed demon walks in the bar and makes him start living and feeling again. It's instant sexual chemistry and tension, with the author's usual zingy dialogue and verbal foreplay. The sex is hot and raunchy and a little rough, with some biting included. This is no suave Don Juan were talking about here. This bad boy can be crude and direct: "Ye are gorgeous when angry. It's making me horny. Wanna f-?" But Niall does have his sweet moments, too, and I liked him and Aella together.
The romance is quick to action, the sex hot, and the story fun, light and easy to read. Not a complicated read, but just the sexy, fluffy goodness I needed today. I like to read this author when I want to feel happy and good; when I want to feel as if the book gave me a smile and hug. And a saucy wink.
I do think you should read the series in order; it does add to the enjoyment of it all, seeing Lucifer and his other matches, knowing how he operates, seeing or hearing about past characters again. Katie is mentioned in this book, we meet Sasha, and best of all, we see Felipe again!
