Suffering is worst when you’re doing it alone. But Emma’s taking Hell like an angel—even though her languishing began with having her seraph wings torn from her back. Now her worst enemy lords his body and his evil desires over her while she tries desperately to remember the words to her favorite prayer.

As Devil, Jack used to have Hell and its women humming like well-oiled machines. Too bad he’s nowhere near the place now. Stuck on Earth as a human, he must work with a ragtag team of exiled minions and half-breeds to save the angel who’s become all that matters.

Rescuing a seraph is the plan, but breaking into Hell means letting evil things out. Once they collide, minions and angels converge in the battle of the ages: good versus evil. But which side is which? Will Jack destroy the world as he fights to save Emma, his true and timeless love, from a damnation he designed?

An action-packed sequel to Crushed Seraphim, this tale reveals—time and again—what happens when the heart’s deepest desires break free. With a story both sizzling and sensual, emotional and enigmatic, Debra Anastasia invites readers to join a battle with nothing less than love on the line. (Goodreads)


Jack is back!  He and his crew have to do something that no one has done before – break into Hell.  Saving Emma is something that he should be able to do with a snap of his sexy and talented fingers but he is no longer the Devil and is now painfully human.  He has gathered  together a band of unlikely heroes to find her and defeat Everett, his successor down under.

Emma is dutifully doing her time in Hell and gladly surrendered her wings so that Jack could be safe and have his soul back. She is forced to endure Everett’s torments from inside a cage that Jack cleverly designed to keep the reigning Devil away from her.  She never waivers from the path that God has set before her and finds strength in an unexpected place.  God answers prayers and she knows that soon she will be delivered.

Jack and his gang of brave half breeds face what seems to be insurmountable hurdles to bust Emma out of Hell and it’s the supporting characters that add an amazing twist to Bittersweet Seraphim that will mark your heart and touch your soul.

I have waited (not so patiently, I might add) for Debra Anastasia’s next book.  I knew it was going to be something special, but I couldn’t have imagined the incredible journey it would take me on.  There is the epic love of Jack and Emma – a love between a devil and an angel.  It should be doomed from the beginning but love has a funny way of surviving the impossible – even death.  The new characters of Kate, Nero, Jenny, Seriana, Dean, Violent, Mine and our old friend Jason – add beautifully crafted layers of emotion and feeling to the story.  Bittersweet Seraphim will make you cheer, make you cry and make you laugh out loud.  Yes, it’s really that good…
