Being the youngest daughter of the Devil isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. The days of teenage rebellion and vows of chastity made just to tick off her father are over, and now all Faith Bettincourt wants is a nice, quiet life. Unfortunately, thanks to the unexpected arrival of her demonically-downsized sister, a ditzy succubus roommate, and dear old Dad himself, Faith’s plans for a relaxing vacation spent watching reruns go up in flames.
Now it’s all Faith can do to keep the family reunion from Hell (literally) under wraps, and the angelically-inclined hottie across the hall from realizing there’s something weird about his neighbor. And, thankfully, it’s working. Until an angelic stalker shows up in a bid to steal her powers and take over the world.
Forget watching reruns. With the way things are going, Faith will need the luck of the Devil just to survive until Monday.

. . . .being evil has never been as much fun.
First Impressions – The book summary attracted me right of the bat. I am a sucker for quirky, offbeat comedies and the storyline, although not unique, it appeared fun and perfect for a summer read. I did not see the cover until after I had received th... ...more
Who knew the devil was a family guy? I sure didn’t. As I was reading through Luck of the Devil, I honestly had to put it down at one point to ask one of my sisters was she sure our father was not the devil. My family dynamic was so much the same, just take out all the paranormal. Of course my sis... ...more

No matter how dysfunctional you may think your family is, I guarantee Faith Bettincourt, main character of Luck of the Devil, by Patricia Elmer, can top it.

We all love of our families but if we're honest, family get togethers do have a tendency to become stressful. This is especially true, if your name is Faith Bettincourt and your father is the Devil. When her entire family descends upon her apartment, Faith knows that her plan to spend her week of... ...more
Luck of the Devil by Patricia Eimer can be summed up in two words: awesome fun! My biggest disappointment with this book: I always look to goodreads to tell me if books are to be part of a series, and it looks like it is a standalone. I want more! **stomps feet** That's a bummer because it was a... ...more

When I was offered to review this book, I grabbed it. Seriously, the Devil's daughters are named Faith and Hope, Faith's roommate is a clumsy succubus, Jesus is a first cousin and "Lou" Lucifer and God are chummy bros. I knew - KNEW - this novel would be full of snark and wit, and I wasn't disapp... ...more

Luck of the Devil (Speak of the Devil) – Patricia Eimer
What a romp! This was one hell of an engrossing read, which is odd for a book like this. Sure, it was funny and irreverent but it had a great mystery, several surprising romances, some hot bits and a wonderful cast of quirky characters! I se... ...more
Looking for a paranormal that makes you laugh? You have found it! I really enjoyed Faith and her family. I don't always connect to the characters so easily in a comedy/parody like this, but I didn't have this problem here. The whole family dynamic you are introduced to was more like a dysfunction... ...more
This was a fun, irreverent paranormal romance. The family dynamics really put the "fun" in dysfunctional. Faith is the devil's youngest half human daughter. She tries to distance herself from the whole evil thing as she works as a pediatric nurse. But trouble just seems to keep finding her. She a... ...more
