For millennia, male infernal figures have been portrayed as both dazzling tempters and dark seducers. The alluring fantasy of Handsome Devil highlights Lucifer's role as the beautiful trickster who steals hearts (as well as souls), and features stories—both new and old—of tantalizing tempters, sexy incubi, demon lovers, and devils who beguile and betray.

Brit Mandelo, Tor.com:
Despite following a very particular theme, [the anthology] manages to never feel too repetitive or stale. The stories are arranged cleverly to shift tone and focal point just enough between each piece that there are no disjunctions, but also no echoes.
