The holidays are a time for giving, so when Marsh decides to give Jane a real Christmas, complete with family and friends, he never expected everything to go haywire. Meeting his family is only part of the problem. His parents, the reigning royalty of his race, are going to be a surprise to Jane, but no more so than his station as crown prince, a fact he had kept hidden from her till now.
Throw in a conniving princess that contracts his death, an engagement ring and his quirky and outlandish parents, and Marsh has his hands full, just presenting Jane as his consort.
Two days before Christmas, Trent Duvall, Janey's silent partner in the assassin syndicate, shows up in Austria and informs them that a special member of the Duvall inner circle has gone AWOL, and it's up to Jane and Marsh to help him get him back. With the help of vampire Malcolm Frost and a few choice friends, Trent and Marsh leave Jane in Austria, go to Africa to retrieve their family member, and usurp the position of a murderous and insane Fallen Angel.
And you thought your holidays were stressful!
I enjoyed this book better than the first. Still a lot of hot and sizzling scenes, but the plot was better than the first. You get to know the characters better and I absolutely love his mom. I will probably continue listening to this series. Love her Gods in NY series more I think.

Duvall, Inc. Book Two
When Marsh decides to give Janey the Christmas she's never truly experienced, he throws her into his world with family, presents, and duels to keep her station. Jane isn't as surprised as she should be at Marsh's royal status, but dealing with the reality of it is interesting, to say the least. His mother and father are the first people Jane meets upon her arrival. Rosa is a bit crazy, but loving and helpful. Asaovic, Asa, is a horny dog who will seduce his own mother, but Janey knows how to deal with men like him. After defeating a woman intent on becoming the next princess, Jane and Marsh settle in for the holiday, until Trent shows up bearing news that a friend is missing.
If you're looking for a different kind of Djinn and some interesting characters, this book is for you!
