Book Description

Feb. 19 2013 Speak of the Devil
Weddings are hell...

After a month of planning not one, but two, demonic weddings, all Faith Bettincourt-the youngest Crown Princess of Hell-wants is to spend some quality time with her angelic boyfriend, Matt. But when a ghost from Matt's past walks through Faith's apartment door, her preoccupation with the weddings from Hell is all that's keeping her from turning his ex, in all her devious angelic glory, into a down throw pillow.

Which is about when Matt's zealous mother declares war on Faith's family.

Now Faith will stop at nothing to stop the craziness and make sure the impending nuptials go off without a hitch. All she's got to do is rescue one of the grooms and go up against an army of so-called do-gooders, and everything will go back to normal. Or as normal as it can be where the Devil's spawn is concerned. With any luck, she might just be able to resuscitate her love life while she's at it.

About the Author

Patricia Eimer is a small town girl who was blessed with a large tree in the backyard that was a perfect spot for reading 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 and worked for a software firm in southwestern Germany but her passion has always been a good book. She currently lives in Pittsburgh with her two wonderful kidsand a husband that learned the gourmet art of frozen pizzas to give her more time to write. When she's not writing she can be found fencing and arguing with her dogs about plot points. Most days the Beagle wins but the Dalmatian is in close second. She's in a distant third.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bending The Spine Review Feb. 18 2013
By bendingthespine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The same charm and humor that had me loving Luck of the Devil, the first book in the Speak of the Devil series, had me laughing right along with Devil May Care. This paranormal comedy is so much fun to read.

The Family dynamic is what really makes me connect with this series. If you where to take away all the paranormal aspects it could be my own family I was reading about. Everyone gets on each others nerves from time to time, if one person knows a secret then the entire family knows, someone always has a snarky comeback for you, and if you are really in trouble everyone around you will drop what they are doing to support and help you. I love that Eimer gets the relationships between these characters so real while using comedy to keep the story feeling light even in tense situations.

Faith, the narrator of the story is such an easy character to root for. As the Devil’s youngest daughter she can do some real damage and have a lot of fun doing said damage, but Faith is anything but evil. Faith is a pediatric nurse who not only cares for her patients but also always does what she can to care for her family and friends as well. Faith does her best to use her two greatest character traits snark and sarcasm to get through any tough situation, and when you are the daughter of the Devil you tend to land yourself in a lot of sticky situations.

If you do plan on reading this series (You should it’s super fun.) read it in order. Some of the loose ends that were left in Luck of the Devil were double knotted in Devil May Care, but I am happy that this story is not over yet. I am hoping that I won’t have to wait an entire year for the next book after that ending… I really want Matt and Faith to eventually get an HEA, you know after Eimer has finished torturing them.

Happy Reading,
Rebecca

4.0 out of 5 stars engaging, entertaining, and full of humor, a great read! March 1 2013
By Heather BookSavvyBabe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
When I first read book one of the Speak of the Devil Series, Luck of the Devil, I remember loving the humor and the fresh outlook on the denizens of heaven and hell. I was very eager to read Devil May Care, which proved to be another fun, highly entertaining read.

Faith is the daughter of the devil himself and she tries to keep her demonic side apart from her human life, where she is a pediatric nurse. Devil May Care picks up with Faith trying to help plan two weddings, that of her parents (yes, Satan is getting married ) and her best-friend and brother. Part of the wedding festivities mean meeting her angelic/nephilim boyfriend’s parents, who are not exactly happy to welcome a demoness into their son’s life. There is drama around every turn with exes popping back in the picture and Matt’s mother on a deadly mission. All the stress strains Faith’s relationship with Matt, and may proved to be more than the couple can handle, or even live through.

I really enjoyed reading Devil May Care. There is never a dull moment in this book, which is full of humor as well as action. The paranormal aspects are refreshing with all the angels, demons, heaven, and hell being one big dysfunctional family. The characters are engaging and witty, and their antics provide for very fun reading. I really like Faith as the protagonist. She has major trust and love issues, and as her relationship with Matt is tested, I felt for the strain she was under. She does not always make the best choices (there comes a point when I wanted to shake her… hard), but she is part human and has her own vulnerabilities.

While I enjoyed the entire book, the ending of Devil May Care has me a bit worried. All of the drama has had an unexpected effect on Faith’s life and I’m not sure that I like it. However, I feel like Patricia Eimer has big plans for this series and I think that I’m primarily just eager to see what comes next. So, I hope Ms. Eimer gets to writing quickly so I can pick up book three as soon as possible.

One part supernatural, one part romance, and one part humor, Devil May Care is an engaging, entertaining “must-read” book for paranormal fans. The more I read this series, the better it gets. I would recommend reading the books in order, to get a better understanding of the characters and the family dynamics. Both books are excellent reads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent job Feb. 28 2013

This is the second book in this series. Another excellent job. I think I even like it better than the first book. Filled with action from beginning to end. New characters and original ones battle for good and evil. I anxiously await for the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will be a Re-Read Feb. 23 2013
By Dianne Socci-Tetro - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Weddings are hell..."

To make this an enjoyable read, I suggest you read Luck of the Devil (Speak of the Devil) first so you don't have to much trouble figuring out who is who and what is what. Although I have to admit, Ms Eimer did a wonderful job of giving just enough back-story without making it boring for those who may have just finished the last book.
With this second entry in the "Speak of the Devil" series, we find our favorite daughter of the Devil helping to put together two weddings, fixing the missing drug problem from the last book, dealing with her ex-fiancé Dan who is back and trying to find her lost brother Tolliver. Oh and she is also helping out Matt's old girlfriend Brenda, who has conveniently shown up and is now staying on Faith's couch. In addition to all of that, just to add a little more stress to the days before the weddings, Faith also has to take care of the Angale and Matt's evil mother, all who are trying to get to Matt to sacrifice him.

Wow, that is a hell of a list of things to do before two weddings. And let's face it, for Faith to be a bridesmaid in her mother's wedding, and to wear the hideous dress her mother has picked out is a torture worse than Purgatory!

There are so many wonderful sub story-lines going on and some people acting out of character ,that I am afraid to make this too spoilerish so I'll leave it up to you to hunt them down!

Thankfully, this book continues with the fast pacing and wonderful characters that the first book had. We still have the clever plotting and nice tight writing that makes this another fun read. I loved it that there were plenty of cool surprises to keep things real interesting (Malachi for one and Harold for another) I am so glad I had both books with me so I could go right from the first one directly into the second one. I just wish that the third (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead) was out already!

Patricia Eimer sort of reminds me of a demented Anne Bishop!

5.0 out of 5 stars Devil May Care by Patricia Eimer Feb. 22 2013
By J. G. Hughes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
So often, readers pick up a book based, solely, on the publisher's blurb. "Ooh, that sounds like a great read," we think. And, so often, we think wrong.

Happily, this is not one of those books!

Devil May Care delivers on its promise - and so much more. This is a wonderful standalone story, the second in the Speak of the Devil series, that will make you laugh out loud and keep you on the edge of your seat. (It does help if you've read the first book, but Eimer catches you up pretty quickly.)

It would take me pages - and pages - to even attempt to describe the familial dynamics, relationships, and ... everything. So, I won't. Suffice it to say - take away the supernatural abilities, wings, and horns, and this could be anyone's family anywhere in the world.

Well, if the family has serious issues.

Faith already has enough on her plate - her best friend's and mother's weddings to plan, a pediatric nursing job, and the ghost of a golfing doctor she kinda helped kill - when her boyfriend's Angale fiancee shows up, followed by his mother and a whole lot more trouble. An unexpected character wanders back into her life, bringing memories and issues galore. And, if that weren't enough, Faith's brother is captured by sprites.

Which are different from imps. (I'm just sayin'.)

This is an outrageous, irreverent-yet-serious, and seriously fun story. The descriptions of people and situations are spot-on, the twists and turns are riveting (so many 'What?!' moments), and it takes about 3 sentences to completely suspend disbelief in angels and demons among us.

My only issue? The ending. Now I'm hooked, and I don't have the next book. Argh!

Get busy, Ms. Eimer. Faith and Matt, and your readers, are waiting.
