Thou shalt not commit adultery.

It’s an order Luxi never saw coming. She is the Sin of Lust, and adultery is her bread and butter. Yet for the first time, Lucifer sends her on assignment under orders to not play the seductress.
Her target? A preacher-turned-politician…who happens to be sex on legs.

Since his wife’s infidelity, Grayson Bailey has avoided opening his heart to anyone. This changes when Luxi, his new intern, walks into his office. The intensity with which his heart and libido react makes for rotten timing. He is not one of those politicians. Yet nothing, not even the increasingly bold death threats in his inbox, can keep his mind–or his hands–off Luxi.

Resisting Grayson is the largest challenge Luxi has faced, and the more Lucifer dodges her questions, the more she wants to break the rules. Luxi knows the devil has an agenda and fears it involves a crazed assassin. With her heart compromised, Luxi is willing to do anything–even take on Hell itself–to save the life of the only man she has ever loved.


Review: I found the second book or should I say second deadly sin to be Lust. I enjoyed once again the new take on what I learned in Sunday school. Let me say I am going to throw everything I learned out of the car window as Ms. Stanton’s version is so much more fun.

Midwest preacher meets Lust or in this case Luxi a little bit of a bi-ach or bratty. Luxi was sent to not seduce but watch over Grayson’s campaign. Like that is going to happen when your deadly sin is LUST. Go figure. What with the instant love they have for each other there is just no way that no touch thing is going to work. Even with his goody two shoes lifestyle. I found this story to have a multitude of unexpected surprises along with some witty dialogue and added with some very compromising positions makes this one surprising story. I liked these elements because they helped in giving us some rather hot and sensual sex.

Ms. Stanton has a way of adding those multi layers to her characters making it that much easier to relate to. They become very real. This story simply tells things like they are…no holds barred and that isn’t a bad thing. There were plenty of laughs my pants off moments just as there were twists that kept coming keeping me very entertained. I enjoyed the insults that were thrown between Luxi and John (Grayson’s campaign manager). Luxi proved how she could hold her own against anyone as she gave as good as she got.

I do have to say I am starting to re-think the whole good vs. evil…Jesus vs. Lucifer thing. I find that Lucifer the proverbial bad boy is becoming really interesting…and so very HOT!!!!! I can’t wait for the next deadly sin to appear.
