Book Blurb

Elderoy Tipple is lonely, horny, and was recently dumped, but he is also in possession of a spell book that will allow him to summon an incubus. Rather than sit around and bemoan the fact that he’s lost his lover, Archie, Elderoy decides to do the spell, have one wild night of demonic sex, and then banish the creature back to Hell.

But when things go wrong, Elderoy finds himself not just in the incubus’s sexual thrall, but losing his life force as the demon draws it out of him orgasm by orgasm. With the demon keeping him from enacting the counter spell, and no one to save him, how will Elderoy escape the incubus’s clutches?

Be Warned: m/m sex, bondage


Book Review

It has always seemed to me that dabbling in spells and magic when you have no idea what you're doing is a bad idea. This story is about a man who tries just that, only to find out that he is in deep trouble, to the point where his life is endangered. The Steampunk setting adds a nice historical flair to the story while it makes the threat of the incubus he summons even more "real".

Elderoy thinks he has the perfect solution to his problems: recently dumped by his boyfriend, he thinks summoning an incubus for some "delights of the flesh" is just what he needs to alleviate his horniness. He is so sure he can banish the creature back to hell after a night of debauchery, but his insecurity in casting the spell in the first place warned me there might be a problem.

The incubus, of course, is much more powerful than Elderoy had suspected, and manages to prevent him from casting the binding spell that would have given him control. Instead, the beast begins to drain Elderoy's life force by making him come against his will. Again and again, to the point where he faints. Help comes from an unexpected quarter, but breaking the hold of an incubus is not easy.

If you like stories about men who get in over heir heads and won't admit they need help, if you enjoy reading about the magical, occult, and creatures of hell, and if you're looking for a read that is just a little otherworldly, you will probably like this book.
