"Great, we'll see you in Hell at nine on Monday morning!"
How can an angel survive in a corporate Hell?
Mel accepted a job in the Health, Environment, Life and Lands Corporation - otherwise known as HELL.
Dying for a decent coffee, surrounded by bureaucracy gone mad and demons who just love making life difficult, Mel must find out what Lucifer and his minions are really up to – before his Corporation goes global. Mel's no ordinary angel, but she's never dealt with demons before.
Could the seductive CEO really be Lucifer himself?
Are Luce's lusty looks all they seem, or is he after more than Mel's body?
Does he have a hope in Hell with her, anyway?
He's about to find out that this sweet angel's soul is not for sale.
A tiny taste of what's in store: "Do you know how long you've made me wait?"
Luce lifted his chin. "Close the door."
Mel turned and kicked the door shut with the sole of one shoe. The click of it closing coincided with her eyes meeting Luce's once more.
"Now strip and get your arse on the desk," Luce instructed.
Mel stared at him. He couldn't be serious, could he? "Every other girl in this building knows how to do as she's told. Do you know how many girls I've had on this desk? You should consider yourself lucky. The last one I had in here was so quick getting undressed that I managed to give her a full fifteen minutes of my time. At this rate, you'll be lucky to have five."
Mel became transfixed by the timber desktop. "Did you wipe it clean afterwards?"
"What?" Luce's face reddened.
"Did you wipe it clean afterwards?" Mel repeated patiently. "I mean, you work on it every day. Imagine how many diseases and strange germs each of your, er, accommodating staff members were carrying when they placed their bare behinds on your desk."
The shock on Luce's face was priceless. He edged his chair away from the suddenly suspicious surface.
About the Author:
Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish. She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world. The Ocean's Gift series is her first foray into fiction, followed by her suspense thriller Nightmares trilogy.
She swears the Mel Goes to Hell series ambushed her on a crowded train and wouldn't leave her alone.
