Full of seething, sensual shadows and hidden faces, the annual Masquerade Ball at Lymbo Resort is one event anyone would sell their soul for.

One night a year, impiety and temptation take center court at the invitation only event hosted by the mysterious Avan Noxturna. Decadent darkness, burning lust, and wicked intentions hide behind innocent masks in the most innocuous places.

The fires of hell may blaze hot, but the flames of passion consume common sense when obsessive memories escape to ignite an inferno of intimate bliss that will sear both saint and sinner.

 

Review:   The cover of Point of No Return states it’s a paranormal but also A Breathless Press Halloween Flirt and flirt it did.  At only 23 pages there was a lot of story told all set on Halloween.  It starts out sounding like trash talk but the double meanings are hiding the real conversation until you read more because the two characters are talking about something innocuous – golf!  There are double meanings and play on words throughout as we meet God and the Devil who are best friends – Nonie and Lucifer.  Avan is the only daughter of Lucifer and the story centers around her and the annual Halloween Gala and Fundraiser she holds.  It’s held at the Lymbo Resort which has seven floors – Lust, Greed, Gluttony, Sloth, Wrath, Envy and Pride – representing the seven sins. Jareth and she have a past and a future if the story is to be believed.  He’s the son of God but the one no one knows about.

There is lust and steam, passion, dirty talk, family and friends, coworkers, angels and demons, swearing and sex – no romance, no love!  There are a lot of descriptions of the carnal act, the costumes, her sexual reactions, their bodies and facial expressions.  There also are mention of the different angels and saints in passing.  The message is don’t say you’ll sell your soul for anything since someone might just be listening! There was closure but the story was entirely too brief.

I have not read books by this author before and I’m not usually a fan of paranormals but this was an enjoyable quick read.  I will give one or two of her other books a try to see if any are longer in length.

Favorite Quote: Golden eyes glowed under the lighting, the skull mask framing a chiseled face.  Head to toe, in form fitting red, she remained hypnotized by the pure masculine grace, watching him unfurl from the shadows in wraithlike glory, making his way towards her stealthily.
