Nick Rawlings is one of the last of the Markku, a special race created by Satan to do his bidding. Decades ago, Nickís grandfather led a revolt against Satan and taught the other Markku how to break free from Satanís power. Breaking away from Satanís power, however, made the Markku mortal, and now there are barely any left. Nick canít let anyone know what he really is for fear that Satan will find out and make the Markku race truly extinct.
Becca Gibbs is Satanís favorite Rivka, not only because of her ruthlessness but because if anyone can find a loophole to carrying out Satanís orders, itís Becca. She canít stand being under Satanís power any longer and is desperate to find a way to break free of him. When Nick approaches Becca seeking help in saving his sisterís life, she agrees to help him in return for information on how to free herself from Satanís grasp.
It seems, though, that the only way to save Nickís sister is to kill Satan, and Beccaís not going to let that happen - not because she has an undying affection for him, but because if he dies, she dies. Together, Nick and Becca must find a way to each get what they so desperately want. What they donít expect is to find in each other what they both need.
He Loves Me, He Loves Me Hot is the third installment in Stephanie Roweís sexy paranormal series. Set shortly after the events in Must Love Dragons, this story advances plot lines begun in the earlier books. While the book stands alone quite well, readers will enjoy it best if they are already familiar with many of the cast of characters. Satan Jr. is back and manages to wreak havoc despite being frozen in a block of ice. Paige, Beccaís apprentice, provides much of the storyís comic relief as she learns about what it takes to be Satanís favorite Rivka. Becca and Nick are thoroughly engaging; itís been a long time since Iíve read a romance where the leading couple were so perfectly matched.
