Coming September 2011 from Harlequin's sexy new electronic novella line, Nocturne Cravings
Throughly Jones (T.J.) is a witch who practices dark magic and is desperate to rescue his brother from Daemonia. He needs to circumvent the usual methods to conduct demons because he's after a big catch. But will cat-shifting familiar, Star, agree to cut out the middle man and work exclusively with T.J.? That would involve them having sex to conduct a demon. But she wants a real relationship, without 'work sex' getting in the way. Can the two share the most intimate of connections to get the rescue job done, or will love toss a kink into their plans?
I’ve only read a few of Michele Hauf’s books, but I am fast becoming a fan. Her stories make me laugh and squee, sometimes all at once! I especially enjoy her witty characters and world building. Even though this is only a novella, Hauf still manages to skillfully get in enough world building information to make it feel real and satisfying.
This Glamorous Evil is a fun, sweet and sexy romp. Our hero, Throughly Jones (for some reason I find this name extremely sexy) is a witch (I find this very sexy too, just saying…) who might have bitten off more than he can chew when he abducts a cat shifting familiar, Star, to summon a demon. Star is such a fun character! I like how she still has some of her kitty behaviors when in human form
Let’s talk novellas for a moment. I love novellas! I can read them in one sitting (as a mom, this is important) and I still get a full story with all the character development I love. When I get bogged down with a full length novel or I have too many of the same genre in a row to read I can grab a novella and cleanse my literary palate, so to speak. Novellas are my literary sorbet. They are also the best way to try new authors.
I give this novella 4 Throughly happy Sheep!
