Lucifer’s Daughter by Eve Langlais

Fantasy Romance, 2010

Some people rebel against their parents by being their worst nightmare. Satana Muriel Baphomet, our heroine, is her father’s worst nightmare. From getting straight A’s in school to being a virgin at 23, she is her father’s biggest disappointment in life. After all, being a goody-two-shoes just won’t do when she is the daughter of Satan.

Muriel runs the Nexus, a bar that also happens to be a popular evening spot for the spooks in the neighborhood. When the story opens, Muriel has to deal with her lust for a guy named Auric, who may have secrets of his own that may or may not be related to a rumored coup in the making against her beloved father. What is a girl to do in this situation?

Lucifer’s Daughter isn’t bad, and under any other circumstances, I may have a blast with it. Unfortunately, I cannot stand Auric. I happen to harbor an irrational dislike for men who call women “wench” and “woman” in a contemporary setting, and Auric is a guy who does that. He also has this irritating patronizing way of speaking and behaving around women.

I try really hard to overlook this guy and appreciate instead the witty prose, the humorous tongue-in-cheek world building, and other good points of this story, but I can’t get over how sad it is that Muriel has to settle for this wretch when there are so many gorgeous and less irritating romance heroes in this world as well as the next.
