The chemistry and sex scenes between Raven and Marcus were hot, hot, hot!!
I would have liked to see more depth in the story development because I really enjoyed where this story was going and the potential for it to be great is there.
I'm hoping this is novella is book one in a series, as there were a few questions and situations that were never quite answered and I'd enjoy reading more from this author in the future!
My OFFICIAL REVIEW written for Carly's Book Reviews
Hell's Bounty tells of a succubus who is a bounty hunter employed by Hell. While "on the job" of securing a soul for Hell, she encounters Marcus. I won't spoil anything for you by telling you more about Marcus, but let's just say he is a man unlike any she had ever met (and there had been a lot...she is a succubus, after all!)
The story develops a few gripping twists that had me eagerly turning the pages to see what would happen next!
While I, personally, would have liked to see the "loose ends" elements of the story tied up a little more, the plot was great, the love scenes were smokin' and I would read more books by Kayden!
***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***
A bounty hunter for Hell, Raven doesn’t mind a little rule breaking—she is supposed to be bad, after all. But for Marcus, the repercussions are far more dangerous. He’s been sent to eliminate Raven, and yet, he just can’t seem to bring himself to follow his directive. As far as his boss is concerned, she’s been ripping off Heaven of its rightful recruits—stealing souls. Despite the evidence stacked against her, Marcus senses there’s another player involved, one who has no problem letting Raven take the fall.
Raven has no idea what she’s gotten in to. As an incubus, she’s forced to do her master’s bidding, even if she doesn’t like it. Her boss is a succubus and he’s much stronger than she. He could eliminate her with ease. But it isn’t until she meets Marcus—her assigned assassin—and hears him out on what’s really going on, that she realizes her boss is using her as a scapegoat to do his dirty work. She’s good at her job, perhaps a little too good. She’s never questioned who she’s supposed to kill before. She doesn’t like her boss, but she stands no chance against him should she deny his demands. If she refuses, he’ll kill her. If she continues executing innocent people to pad Hells hallways, she’ll stay on Heaven’s hit list. Either way, things don’t look good.
Marcus isn’t one to question his boss either. When he’s sent to eliminate Raven, whom he’s told has been stealing souls meant for Heaven, he’s ready to find and take her out as ordered. But when he finally has Raven face to face, all he can focus on is the lure of her soft curves. The temptation of an incubus is difficult to deny. While he’s not like any mortal man, he has the same needs and desires. When he gets his hands on her, it’s not in a manner his boss intended. Suddenly, things get complicated. Marcus suspects Raven is being set up, but by who and why? If he hopes to save his little temptress, he’ll have to hold Heaven’s wrath at bay long enough to find the real villain and bring him or her to justice.
Hell’s Bounty by Kayden Claremont is one of those easy to read stories that pulls you along as the plot unfolds. For anyone wanting a steamy read, this book has plenty of sex. Both Raven and Marcus are masters of their trade, two bounty hunters equal in cunning and skill. While they should be natural enemies, the chemistry between them overcomes their differences. Both have had their fair share of partners in the past, but neither was prepared for the powerful emotions and feelings of completeness the other invoked deep within.
Marcus quickly develops a sense of protectiveness for Raven. He knows he can’t kill her, but he’ll have to protect her long enough to prove her innocence. That’s easier said than done when you have a kick-ass woman determined to take matters into her own hands, in more ways than one.
When you think of Heaven and Hell, you typically attribute good and bad to their names. Even though Marcus worked for Heaven, and Raven worked for Hell, both were simply doing a job. I got the feeling that Raven didn’t really enjoy her line of work—killing bad guys with meaningless sex—but she dealt with it. Marcus offers her something she’s never had before, something she’s never felt. I think what she wanted is what a lot of us are after and Marcus presented that possibility. Despite the odds against them, she’s willing to fight to have him, even if it means standing up to her boss.
I enjoyed Hell’s Bounty pretty much from beginning to end. I guess if I had a complaint, it would be the wrap up at the end. I think the buildup of catching the bad guy kind of fell short and ended too easily. I was surprised by one character in particular—didn’t see that coming—but it made sense. Overall, I consider it a book worth having read and would recommend it to others, particularly readers who love a strong heroine.
A sexy-as-hell bounty hunter and a tough-as-nails target; the two should be polar opposites and yet, when they come together, their joining is explosive. There’s plenty of steamy sex to keep your heart pumping, and enough excitement to make you eager to see what happens next. Ms. Claremont has penned a super-hot read that easily held my interest until the end. If you’re looking for a something to start your engines, be sure to pick up a copy of Hell’s Bounty, it will get you going for sure.

Raven Hart is a gorgeous woman who works at the police station as a detective to cover for the fact of what she really is and that is a succubus. A succubus is something that takes a persons soul by kissing them and sucking their soul out of their body. Men find her alluring, sexy and every man wants to do nasty things to her. She is good at kicking ass when she needs too but when she ends up wanting a guy who works for Heaven and she works for Hell, things get quite interesting.
Marcus Dionyslus also works for the police station as a detective and gets to be Raven's new partner. The sexual tension between them has steam coming off the pages. It takes every ounce of restraint not to jump each other when they are in the same room together. But a crime has been committed and things don't add up and together between the sex that would make the devil blush and trying to prove the truth, you get one hell of an awesome book.
If it's a cold night and you want to cuddle up with a good book, grab this one because not only is this book fantastic, it will also keep you way beyond warm, this book will heat you up in more ways than one!
The concept was so intriguing and very unlike anything I've read before. It was fast-paced, suspenseful and "very" erotic.
The characters were well-rounded, bad-ass, sexy immortals. I do enjoy a story with a bad-ass female lead. I fell in love with both Raven and Marcus within just a few chapters.
It was a great read but I would have loved to have had more background on incubus/succubus relationships and Nephilim in general. However, Kayden did an excellent job fitting in as much as she did in this steamy erotic novella. I hope to see more of Raven and Marcus in future stories!
