Jennifer Estep Books Overview
My name is Gin, and I kill people. They call me the Spider. I’m the most feared assassin in the South when I’m not busy at the Pork Pit cooking up the best barbecue in Ashland. As a Stone elemental, I can hear everything from the whispers of the gravel beneath my feet to the vibrations of the soaring Appalachian Mountains above me. My Ice magic also comes in handy for making the occasional knife. But I don’t use my powers on the job unless I absolutely have to. Call it professional pride. Now that a ruthless Air elemental has double crossed me and killed my handler, I’m out for revenge. And I’ll exterminate anyone who gets in my way good or bad. I may look hot, but I’m still one of the bad guys. Which is why I’m in trouble, since irresistibly rugged Detective Donovan Caine has agreed to help me. The last thing this coldhearted killer needs when I’m battling a magic more powerful than my own is a sexy distraction…
especially when Donovan wants me dead just as much as the enemy.
Curiosity is definitely going to get me dead one of these days. Probably real soon. I’m Gin Blanco. You might know me as the Spider, the most feared assassin in the South. I m retired now, but trouble still has a way of finding me. Like the other day when two punks tried to rob my popular barbecue joint, the Pork Pit. Then there was the barrage of gunfire on the restaurant. Only, for once, those kill shots weren t aimed at me. They were meant for Violet Fox. Ever since I agreed to help Violet and her grandfather protect their property from an evil coalmining tycoon, I m beginning to wonder if I m really retired. So is Detective Donovan Caine. The only honest cop in Ashland is having a real hard time reconciling his attraction to me with his Boy Scout mentality. And I can barely keep my hands off his sexy body. What can I say? I m a Stone elemental with a little Ice magic thrown in, but my heart isn t made of solid rock. Luckily, Gin Blanco always gets her man…
dead or alive.
What kind of assassin works pro bono?It’s hard to be a badass assassin when a giant is beating the crap out of you. Luckily, I never let pride get in the way of my work. My current mission is personal: annihilate Mab Monroe, the Fire elemental who murdered my family. Which means protecting my identity, even if I have to conceal my powerful Stone and Ice magic when I need it most. To the public, I m Gin Blanco, owner of Ashland s best barbecue joint. To my friends, I m the Spider, retired assassin. I still do favors on the side. Like ridding a vampire friend of her oversized stalker Mab s right hand goon who almost got me dead with his massive fists. At least irresistible Owen Grayson is on my side. The man knows too much about me, but I ll take my chances. Then there s Detective Bria Coolidge, one of Ashland s finest. Until recently, I thought my baby sister was dead. She probably thinks the same about me. Little does she know, I m a cold blooded killer…
who is about to save her life.
I d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings. But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn t shy away from my past or my present. And right now I have a bull s eye on my forehead. Cold blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there s a fifty fifty chance one of us won t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur or die trying because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too. The only problem is, Bria has no idea I m her long lost sibling…
or that I m the murderer she s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn t know just might get us both dead…
Old habits die hard for assassins. And I plan on murdering someone before the night is through. Killing used to be my regular gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spider, assassin for hire. And I was very, very good at it. Now, I m ready to make the one hit that truly matters: Mab Monroe, the dangerous Fire elemental who murdered my family when I was thirteen. Oh, I don t think the mission will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more problematic than expected. The bit*ch knows I m coming for her. So now I m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters Mab hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister s head. Keeping Bria safe is my first priority. Taking Mab out is a close second. Good thing I ve got my powerful Ice and Stone magic and my irresistible lover, Owen Grayson to watch my back. This battle has been years in the making, and there s a good chance I won t survive. But if I m going down, then Mab s coming with me…
no matter what I have to do to make that happen.
When killing people is your job, there’s no such thing as a vacation. Then again, how often does an assassin live long enough to enjoy her retirement? In this line of work, you either get lucky or you get dead. And since I destroyed my nemesis Mab Monroe a few weeks ago, all of Ashland s lowlifes are gunning to make a name for themselves by taking out the lethal Spider me, Gin Blanco. So I m leaving behind my beloved barbecue joint and heading south with my baby sister, Bria, to cool my heels in a swanky beach town. Call it a weekend of fun in the sun. But when a powerful vampire with deadly elemental magic threatens an old friend of Bria s, it looks like I ll have to dig my silverstone knives out of my suitcase after all. Complicating matters further is the reappearance of Detective Donovan Caine, my old lover. But Donovan is the least of my problems. Because this time, the danger is hot on my trail, and not even my elemental Ice and Stone magic may be enough to save me from getting buried in the sand permanently.

My name is Gin, and I kill people. It’s something I’ve been doing for years as the assassin called Spider, but now, it s turned into a necessity on my part just to survive all the lowlifes in Ashland who are gunning for me. The underworld is still in turmoil, and I seem to be on everyone s hit list these days. To add to Gin s problems, her lover Owen s ex is in town. Salina is back in Ashland to reclaim an old family legacy and she thinks that Owen is hers for the taking. Also in the mix is Phillip Kincaid, a casino owner and all around shady character who has a mysterious connection to both Owen and Salina. Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but there s more to her than meets the eye. Her water elemental magic makes her a dangerous enemy and someone who can go toe to toe with Gin s Ice and Stone power. But Gin is determined to get to the bottom of Salina s deadly scheme, even though it just might cost her everything including Owen.

She’s A Hot Demon On The Run From Hell Which Isn’t Easy To Do In Heels.
Once upon a time, Jezebel was a powerful succubus, capable of seducing men and sucking out their souls. But that was before Hell put a bounty on her head. Now her only chance to escape a fate far worse than death is to live as a mortal, losing herself in a sea of unfamiliar humanity, in a place where sinners walk hand in hand with saints a place like Belle’s strip club in New York City.
Working as an exotic dancer is a piece of cake for a former demon who once specialized in sex. Taking money from men? Please. It’s like leading lawyers to the Lake of Fire. Plus the lingerie is great. But she hadn’t counted on meeting sexy Paul Hamilton, a man haunted by his past. Good bye, succubus; hello, lovestruck. Learning all about how complicated and pleasurable love can be, Jezebel thinks she’s turned her back on Hell.
But Hell hasn’t stopped looking for her. The secrets Jezebel holds are the most dangerous of all, the kind every demon in the Underworld would do their worst to protect. Demons are closing in, which is enough to make Jezebel shiver in her G string. But it’s her love for Paul that’s going to have deadly consequences…

Like the fact that bad boy incubus Daunuan keeps popping up from the Underworld to put some toe curling moves on her; that her former associates are trying to strong arm her back into the fold; and that every supernatural entity on the planet seems to want to have a conversation with her in the bathroom. But someone in the Underworld isn’t ready to play nice go figure, and this time, the stakes are nothing less than Paul’s immortal soul. If Hell wants Jesse back so badly, they’ve got her. But payback’s a bit*ch, and this bit*ch is about to rock Hell like a hurricane or lose her soul trying…
Lilith Unbound (By:Jonathan Moeller,,Mike Resnick,Lawrence Schimel,Ed Greenwood,,Elaine Cunningham,J. Robert King,,,Jackie Kessler,Stephen D. Sullivan)
‘Bound is the bewitching Lilith…
‘ So begins an ancient incantation for protection against the demon Lilith. Lilith, the First Woman, the wife Adam discarded. Lilith, the goddess of storms, the night bird. Lilith, the succubus who haunts men’s dreams. Lilith the child slaying monster, the mother of demons. Lilith the feminist poster girl. Lilith the muse. The stories herein set Lilith free to explore all these aspects. Mike Resnick and Lawrence Schimel portray her as the ultimate shiksa. Nisi Shawl goes looking for her in the savannas of Africa. J. Robert King finds her in the changeling babies of a modern world. Ed Greenwood delivers her in a mysterious and seductive painting. T. L. Morganfield melds Lilith lore with Native American mythology. Jackie Kessler explores her succubus origins. Eirene Donohue twines a handful of Lilith themes into a tale of storm chased young girl. Within these pages Lilith is a vengeful asteroid, a self help guru, a divorce lawyer, and much, much more…
Daunuan was never the ambitious type. There’s so much to love about his job just the way it is mind blowing sexual prowess, the power to seduce any human, excellent dental plan. But now Pan, the King of Lust, has offered to make Daun his right hand incubus a position other demons would give their left horn for. All he has to do is entice a soul destined for heaven into a damnable act of lust. Should take, oh, seven minutes, tops. Then he meets his target, Virginia Reed. She’s cute. Funny. Smart. Unfathomably resistant to his charms. He can’t understand it. But Daun has centuries of seduction to his credit. He’s the best there is. Sooner or later he’ll transform this polar icecap of a female into a pool of molten desire, and every instinct tells him she’ll be worth the effort. Meanwhile, he has to deal with a plague of rogue demons Hell bent on taking him down, sent by an unknown enemy with a serious grudge. And one other problem: the dawning realization that he’s falling in love that unholiest of four letter words with the woman he’s about to doom for all eternity…
