And The Devil Will Laugh (2018)
Jorge Hernandez is a driven man. What he sets his mind on he goes after relentlessly, and doesn’t care if he leaves his adversaries in body bags or covered in pools of blood.
He’s ruthless and determined to stake a claim on the Canadian legal marijuana industry. Government operated or privately owned, he and his loyal foot-soldiers will muscle in and tear off a big chunk of it for themselves.
His sinister ambitions aren’t limited to the pot business. He’s also got dreams of making a splash in the political realm.
Unfortunately, if you’re rattling a few cages some very unsavory characters will take notice.
But Jorge is more than a match for whoever takes him on – whether it be muck-raking journalists or political opponents who want to challenge the candidate he bought and paid for. Those who oppose him quickly learn he makes a formidable enemy.
Politicians, police or white supremacists, nothing stands in his way because Jorge Hernandez always wins.
The angels may sing in heaven but here on earth, the devil will laugh.
Island Author Releases Tenth Book – The Guardian
In the thrilling sequel to The Devil is Smooth Like Honey, Jorge Hernandez is muscling in on the Canadian marijuana industry, unleashing the same savagery that made him a big player in the Mexican drug cartel. Whether it’s controlling politicians and government officials or using intimidation and violence to get what he wants, few people dare stand in his way.
Although he takes on his enemies with a deceptive ease, it only takes a single threat to his family to bring out the demon inside of him. Fueled by blinding rage, he attacks with a relentless brutality, showing no remorse and offering no mercy.
In a world tainted by racism, corruption, and greed, he proves once again there is a devil and his name is Jorge Hernandez.
In this eye-opening look into the life of the silver-tongued Mexican fox, you find yourself rooting for the society’s underbelly, as sex, drugs and death intermix with family, love, and friendship.

El narco. A monster. Un diablo. Jorge Hernandez had been called many things and it always made him laugh. If there was one word that could be used to describe him, it would be untouchable. Corrupt politicians combined with his charming disposition had contributed to Jorge’s success but it was often the underlying threats behind his handsome smile that sealed the deal. He was unstoppable.
In Paige Noël, he had met his match. A woman who’s as dangerous and sadistic as she was soft and gentle, the last thing he expected was to propose after an explosive first meeting but the intense fire between them was as addictive as the thrill of violence and power.
When some of his personal enemies turn up dead, Jorge shuffles his daughter into a Canadian school, deciding that things are getting a little too hot in Mexico; but does life ever slow down in this dark, underground world?
The devil is smooth like honey but is heaven ever far away?

Mariah Nichols was adaptable. She lived through her parent’s bitter divorce, a childhood of neglect and the discovery that her only sibling was transgender – so the concept of turning into a mortal vampire was just one more adjustment in an already chaotic life.

… or so she thought.
Her name is Mariah, and this is her story.
