When Civil War nurse Ruth Blackstone sacrificed her soul to save her husband’s life, he utterly betrayed her trust. Now, 150 years later, she’s still stuck killing depraved souls to feed her devil of a boss, Jerahmeel. She’s never been one for hair-brained schemes or sweet-talking flirts. That is, until she meets Cajun rogue Odie Pierre-Noir.

Odie has the research and the war plan to overthrow Jerahmeel and win freedom for all Indebteds. There’s just one hitch: he needs Ruth to act as bait. With charm on his side, he shows Ruth an intense passion she’s never experienced before.

Now Ruth must make the hardest decision of her long, damned life: continue in relative safety as an Indebted with Odie as her lover, or risk their eternal souls for one chance to break the curse. Will she choose the lesser evil?

  
Flame Unleashed by Jillian David

Flame UnleashedHard to imagine that Jerahmeel’s indebted ones are actually getting their souls back after decades of service to his evilness. During the Civil War when Ruth became indebted to him, it was to save her husband’s life, the very man who turned around and betrayed her, soul deep. Since that fateful day, she has been at the beck and call of the demon, feeding him with the evil of her cursed blade. Serious and very cautious, her heart has never healed and when a flirty Cajun rogue tries his sweet-talking moves on her, she is surprised to find there is something about this indebted that is awakening her dead heart. Have these two found a reason to risk their eternal souls for a chance at true love?

Odie is a rebel, he has long planned to break free of his bond with Jerameel, but when he meets Ruth, a caregiver for one of the lucky ones who had earned his freedom from the demon, the sparks fly and wheels of hope begin to turn.

Talk about a grand finale to Jillian David’s Hell to Pay Trilogy! Flame Unleashed is proof positive that even a demon is no match for a woman on a mission for love. The serious side of Ruth is well-played off the cock-sure attitude of Odie, who oozed Cajun charm. Jillian David has truly made a great match here, not necessarily a match made in heaven, but surely one to keep readers, chuckling, sighing and rooting for these two. Do they have what it takes to earn their freedom? Is it possible they can do even more?

With Jillian David’s creative pen, anything can and just may happen in this rousing conclusion to her trilogy. Once again, she has concocted a blend of humor, heart and heat, and I don’t mean from the depths of hell.

I received an ARC edition from Jillian David in exchange for my honest review.
