After a deal with loan sharks sours, Darlene’s brother is permanently transformed into a chipmunk. Not one to accept impossibility as a good excuse for failure, she’s determined to rescue her brother and secure revenge against those who’d poisoned him with grade-a transformatives.

If she wants to perform a miracle, she’ll need to join forces with a divine, but the man upstairs and his angels refuse to help.

None of the other so-called benevolent divines are willing to help her, either.

Running out of time and options, Darlene prepares to storm the gates of hell for her brother.

She never expected to fall in love with the Devil.

Warning: this novel contains a woman with a chip on her shoulder, humor, and one hell of a hero. Proceed with caution.

EXCERPT:
While I usually practiced good trigger discipline, I eased my finger onto the trigger to make it clear I’d shoot if given a single excuse. “Well, what’ll it be? You going to leave peacefully, or will I be shooting you before I call the cops?”

“We don’t need to bring the cops into this.”

“You’re a lot dumber than you look. You used a transformative on him. That’s permanent. Law says I’ve gotta report his new status as a chipmunk. If you braindead morons wanted to keep the cops out of it, you should’ve done something else.”

“You’re one of those law-abiding goody-goodies?”

“I get a paycheck for becoming my brother’s caretaker, and they might be able to help me restore him back to human. If you didn’t want me calling the cops, you should have picked a different plan. Now get the f*ck off my property. The safety is off, a round is chambered, and what’s one less one of you thugs out to bother people?”

“I have a message for you.”

“Deliver it by mail, then, and don’t you even think about making me pay postage.”

“But—”

“I’m about three seconds from shooting you, and I really don’t give a f*ck if I put the round through your forehead. You got me? If you haven’t figured out I mean business, look really carefully where my finger is resting.”

He checked, and he had enough sense to blanch. “I’ll be telling the boss about this, little girl.”

“Tell him if he wants any money out of my brother, well, you idiots should’ve left him in a form he’s capable of paying in. Leave. Now.”

He did, and he got into a black car. I made a show of clearing the chamber, popping out the magazine, replacing the round, and restoring the firearm to working order before gesturing with the weapon for him to leave.

While shooting out one of his tires would’ve appeased my temper, I let him go.

I had enough troubles without doing more than informing the assholes I wouldn’t go down without a fight.
