Dexter DeWitt is a demon in hell who is in love with Charlie Jackson, a mortal on earth. Dexter knew with Charlie’s occupation as a political assassin she would eventually join him in Hell and he’d have her for eternity.

Charlotte Jackson, AKA Charlie, is an ex-marine turned political assassin. She grew very wealthy and very confident because of her kills. It was the perfect job, until one day she missed the mark and killed a beautiful six-year-old little girl. Her perfect job sent her into a downward spiral until Dexter DeWitt was sent up to escort her to Hell, right before she is about to commit suicide.

This is a marvelous story combining the Hades underworld, and the more sinister workings of earth above. A demon, Dexter DeWitt watched from the pit as the love of his life murdered evil dictators on earth. He knew she would be joining him in Hell, because everyone who takes a life spends eternity in Hades. Satan also has plans, much to Dexter’s dismay. He plans to take Charlie as his bride, and there’s nothing Dexter can do about it—unless of course Charlie repents from her misdeeds. Still guilt-ridden because of the botched hit, Charlie decides she can’t live with herself anymore. When Satan himself sends Dexter to earth to escort Charlie to Hell, right after she completes her jump from the Golden Gate Bridge, Dexter, going against everything he stands for as a demon, not only talks her out of jumping but does everything in his power to persuade her to repent. In other words, if he can’t have her, neither will Satan. There is a twist in the end that results in a very HEA.

Mr. Jarrod did an awesome job creating a fascinating tale, and drawing in both the earthly and the spiritual aspects that surround every human. I enjoyed immensely the relationship Mr. Jarrod painted on the canvas of the unbelievable. The imagery was phenomenal. In all honesty, I didn’t see how any author could take the spiritual and the earthly, and create a painting of true love and a happy ever after. But Mr. Jarrod succeeded. Not only did he succeed, but he kept me on the edge of my seat wondering how everything was going to work out. Thank you Mr. Jarrod for a very intriguing read. I consider it a priviledge to review this book. If you’re looking for a good story about angels and demons, this is a must read. I loved it!
