After nearly four millennia, Yve, a succubus and harvester of souls, has finally met her quota. She must travel to hell to redeem her own from the devil who holds it in hock. Ta’avah, the hunky and charming minion responsible for luring Yve into sexual slavery, joins her for her redemption ceremony before an audience of ogling demons.

Only one weapon can trump those of the master of deception, but do Yve or Ta have enough humanity left in them to wield it?
In a kingdom where women outnumber men, marriage has more in common with slavery than romance.

She’s having too much fun disguising herself and bedding the hot, red-blooded type in the neighboring lands.
Prince Koldo is not too keen on marrying either, certainly not to that know-it-all Otsana his parents favor. He’d rather continue his intense sexual Olympics with a commoner named Fleur. Little does he know Otsana and Fleur are the same woman.
When the King throws a ball and a contest to choose Koldo’s bride, Otsana must make a difficult decision. Will she enter the contest of the Golden Pea and risk all for a chance at love, or will she play it safe but give up Fleur’s lover forever?
