The Devil's Wife by Holly Hunt

Dark Urban Fantasy
Date Published: March 2011

“Sit down and open your mind. Everyone knows ‘Devil’ means ‘Darkness’ and ‘God’ means ‘Light’. “But history is always written by the winning side.”
Lucifer Morningstar is a law-abiding, upstanding gentleman of New York City.
Lucifer Morningstar is the Devil.
The owner of powerful magic, Lucifer could have the world at his feet, if not for his apathy and loneliness. Deprived of the ability to understand the emotions of others and his power depleted, Lucifer is no longer able to help even his houseplants.
But there’s a problem with God’s plan to eliminate the Devil forever: Lucifer is fighting Her more than he ever did. He’s found a reason to survive, someone to stand by him through the rough and smooth of his life.
He’s found a new wife.
Clarissa Avario opens Lucifer’s eyes to the darkest side of the real world, full of paedophiles, murderers, rapists and thieves.
Can Clarissa convince Lucifer to do more than stand back and watch the city fall apart? The Devil will do anything to fix Clarissa’s world, including take on Heaven.
And he will kill anything, God, Demon or Angel, that gets in his way.

"Fine." Jehovah looked back to Sam. "If you won't lead by my side, then I'm going to strip your love and your power from you. You can lead the family you doomed, and live forever with the sins of mankind."
Sam tried to protest, but the floor opened under his feet, the crevasse reaching below me and sending me falling through space. He fell with me, trying desperately to grab my hand. I fought against Jehovah's magic, and got one wing free of her hold. I flapped it, frantic, panicked, trying to lift myself back to Seventh Heaven, where Jehovah watched us.
She made a tearing motion, and pain flew across my back and up my wings. I felt them ripped from me, the sinews, the muscles, the skin splitting apart from my body.
I screamed, feeling Her magic smother me, preventing me from healing my wings. Sam was torn away from me, while I screamed, blood pouring from my back and off into the air like scarlet rain.
"Lucifer!" I shrieked as I hit the treetops.

The ground rushed up to meet me, and I felt every bone in my body break. My skin split from the force, and I was conscious just long enough to watch my heart stop beating as my Sam landed beside it.
