Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Patricia Eimer puts a fun, new spin on what it means to be the devil's daughter! -- ?~ Linda Wisdom, National Bestselling Author, Demons Are A Girl's Best Friend

Ms. Eimer's twist on God and the Devil is genius. . . . Luck of the Devil is pure entertainment with satirical religious undertones that yield uncontrollable, giggles-worthy hilarity that simply adds to the fun. -- ~ Renee C. Fountain, New York Journal of Books

4 Stars This book should come with a warning: 'There's enough laugh-out-loud high jinks to cause readers to crack a few ribs.' Eimer's comical tone flows effortlessly, with saucy flair and a warm charming touch. -- ~ Diane Morasco, RT Book Reviews

Meet the Author


Patricia Eimer is a small town girl who was blessed with a large tree in the backyard made for reading in on summer days. Mixed with too much imagination it made her a bratty child but fated her to become a storyteller. After a stint of "thinking practically" in her twenties she earned degrees in Business and Economics. She currently lives in Pittsburgh with her two wonderful kids and a husband that learned the gourmet art of frozen pizzas to give her more time to write.

    Devil's Daughter Lives In Pittsburgh, PA

    This is a hilarious, irreverent look at what it would be like to try to find love if you had the world's most dysfunctional family. The book does for demons what the TV show Bewitched did for witches - shakes up the scary stereotypes.

    Faith's trying to stay under the radar and blend in with the mortals. She works full time as nurse, has her own apartment and doesn't cause enough trouble to make dear old dad proud. When her irresponsible brother turns her roommate into a succubus, things are bound to get a little frazzled. Add trying to keep her neighbor from finding out her true identity when her entire family visits and you get the picture.

    What drew me immediately into this novel is that it's set in my hometown. Yep, the 'burg, home of the Steelers, the Penguins and the Pirates. So what's not to love? Okay, a couple of the jokes went a little over the religiously tasteful area, but it's a romantic comedy so no foul.

    If you're looking for a book to get people on the trolley looking at you funny while you snort and chuckle with the passing pages, go ahead and read it. I dare you.

    I couldn't put it down!

    This book throws you right into a world where divine beings really exist, and Jesus works as a paramedic. Comic action happens right from the premise - but how could it not when your main character is the Devil's daughter, who is rebelling against dear old dad by working long hours as an underpaid, unappreciated nurse. The comic action in this story is enough to keep you chuckling as you turn the pages. I would highly recommend this book, it is both witty and entertaining.

    Engaging and Recommended!

    Review brought to you by OBS staff member Karolina Luck of the Devil by Patricia Eimer is a wonderful, feel good paranormal comedy that sucks you in from the beginning (pun completely intended!). Faith Bettincourt - the Devil's youngest daughter- and her roommate Lisa begin the story by accidentally murdering a doctor who they work with (Lisa - the ditzy succubus in the write up is the culprit). Things definitely go pear-shaped from here on in with the appearance of Faith's older brother Tolliver, sister Hope (along with her recently 'fallen up' incubus husband, Boris) and her own dear father (the Devil Himself) and her ditzy mother to really make things complicated! This family reads as any disfunctionally functional family would - they all love each other to death; but have their own hang ups and crazy antics (and horns and tails thrown in to the mix). Eimer's devil is surprisingly sane - and not as evil as you'd expect. His offspring and chosen partner are far crazier than he is. It's kind of disconcerting how much I enjoyed the devil and his characterisation in this - he really could be anyone. Tolliver and Hope are a lot of fun with their attempts at villainy , and Lisa, though ditzy, is a complete sweetheart. Faith is a great storyteller, and a protagonist I think a woman can relate to -in a crazy "this could never happen to me, but if it did, that's so something I would do" way. Matt - the angelic hottie from next door, is also a great addition to the cast of wacky characters this book provides. He's incredibly grounding, and seems to take everything that goes on around Faith in stride- something (and someone) this character seems to desperately need. Eimer also does an amazingly good job at developing the mystery around Faith's creepy, malicious stalker (yep, that's right, there's a bit of a mystery running through the book, too!) with a satisfying ending. There's even a cameo from a Divine power, or two. The only downside of this book, from my point of view, was sort of being thrown into who the characters were. It took me a few chapters to ascertain who was who and how they connected to Faith, and why. For someone who is quite character based when she reads a book (which I definitely am) it was a little frustrating. But, once that was sorted out, the story made up for that hiccup. All in all, Luck of the Devil by Patricia Eimer is a great read, with really fun, engaging and (although wacky) amusingly real characters and a great plot. Definitely not a run of the mill story, and completely recommended!

    Faith was a normal girl with a normal job trying to lead a norma

    Faith was a normal girl with a normal job trying to lead a normal life. That may have been easy to do, except for the fact she was a half demon and the youngest daughter of the devil. Faith's family showed up out of nowhere just when she was getting to know her new handsome neighbor better. Things start to go bad fast when Faith finds out she had a dangerous stalker and he/she wanted to eliminate her family.

    The art work for the cover was what drew me to this book. The humorous story was what kept me awake at night reading. The book read like a normal love story except that The Devil was Faith's father, God was her uncle and lets not forget her cousin Jesus. They are all on earth living life just like any other family. I found myself laughing while reading and this book was just a lot of fun. I am thrilled to know that the story does not end and I am looking forward for book two Devil May Care. (Check back for our review of Devil May Care) A great funny read.
