Damned if You Do


I’m delighted to show you the new cover for my stories about Rael the male succubus and his detective lover Lars!  I think artist Imaliea has done a fabulous job of conveying the tone of the stories (although I’m sorry to say goodbye to the lovely cover Lou Harper did for my self-pubbed version of A Calling for Pleasure).

For the first time, all the stories – including a brand new novella – will be available in one volume under the title Damned if You Do.

It’s due out from Riptide on June 24th, 2013, and is available to pre-order now at a discount in ebook or print. Open-mouthed smile

All the stories have been comprehensively re-edited by editing ninja Sarah Frantz, formerly of Dear Author, and are now between 20% and a staggering 70% longer than their original versions as published by Torquere – and 100% better! Winking smile

And the longest one of all is the brand new story, #4 in the series:

#1: A Calling for Pleasure

#2: A Blast from the Past

#3: A Wish Too Far

#4: A Glutton for Punishment

All the stories will also be available in separate ebooks.


Series blurb:

Some sins are worth the price.
Sexy male succubus Rael has an insatiable appetite for men that gets him into all kinds of trouble. And he’s just found his favorite flavor: hunky blond detective Lars Thornsson. When those cool Nordic looks combine with Rael’s smoldering dark charms, all Hell could break loose.
Lars’s job at the Paranormal Enforcement Agency means he’s supposed to be policing demons, not falling in lust—or love—with them. But there’s something about this feisty little sex demon that hits all his buttons.
With no shortage of deadly sinners in his city, from serial-killing succubi to drug-dealing demons, all Lars can do is try to keep his private life from interfering with his work. But Rael has a knack for getting mixed up in cases that threaten both their domestic harmony and their lives.

Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at: www.jlmerrow.com
