Welcome to another weekend and another snippet! This is going to be my last Demon Seduction snippet, and then I’m going to move on to other books. 🙂 When you’re done here, don’t forget to click either of the two above links and return to the lists where you can catch up on what all the other truly talented authors have been up to!
The set-up: Kael is back in the bar talking to his favorite bartender. He has also just realized he was never the hunter. He’s been the prey right from the very start.

“Divorce?” Jackson asked, his assessing gaze softening slightly.
Kael laughed, and it was not a happy sound. “If only it were that simple. No, but it does involve a woman. A beautiful, lying, conniving, voluptuous, sexy as hell, witch of a woman, one who has in an inconceivably short amount of time wormed her way so deeply into my very soul—yes, soul, try though you do to convince yourselves that I have none—and not all the dog-desperate clawing can wrench my being free of her. All night long I dominated her body, only to find myself conquered by her. I battled and battered at her, bathed my seed upon her thighs, drew my breaths from between her breasts and yet I drowned. I bound her, only to find myself thoroughly ensnared! My life is gone. Everything I have worked for…everything that I am has, for the sake of pride, boredom, a fine pair of tits and an ass unparalleled by any other known to man—indeed, on the face of this whole miserable planet!—been utterly destroyed.”
“Women,” Jackson commiserated.
“You have no idea. I’m doomed.”
“Ah, don’t say that.” Reaching over the bar, Jackson gave his shoulder a bolstering smack. “I’ve been married three times. So while it’s no consolation right now, trust me when I say this is not the end of the world. She may not be the right woman for you, but eventually you’ll find another.”
“God help me,” Kael scoffed. He covered his mouth with a wince. He really needed to stop saying that.
Blurb: Kaelythus the Corruptor was a demon of the ninth echelon. He was strong, formidable, one who has walked the world for almost two millennia—and he has a problem.
It wasn’t that he’d been mugged on his way home, or that subsequent slip in self-control when he’d revealed himself in all his demonic glory and sent his would-be mugger running down the street. It wasn’t that news of his disgrace seemed to be developing wings, spreading farther and faster than he could counter. It wasn’t even that Kael was going to have to join forces with the infamous Hesoniel, a demon turned Redeemer, in a desperate bid to save himself before the Powers That Be judged him…retire-able. No. No, a clever demon could still come back from all that. Unfortunately for Kael, his biggest problem was who had seen him: his lovely, across-the-alley neighbor, Delilah.
The name alone should have told him something…
Note: This is an erotic romance with coarse language and sexual situations (because really, what kind of erotica or romance would it be without them).
