It’s my week to talk about the DARK SECRETS paranormal noir anthology, so I’m spending each day looking at one of the six novellas in the collection. On Sunday, I had an excerpt from my novella, THE CONSORT. Tuesday, I looked at MARION, MISSING by Rachel Caine. Yesterday was our author non-Facebook Party video. Today, I’m looking at DANCE WITH THE DEVIL by Megan Hart.
Here’s the blurb for DANCE WITH THE DEVIL: When the devil starts the music, you’d better get ready to dance. … Kathleen Murphy has sold her soul to the devil. Fame, fortune, success…everything she’s ever dreamed of is hers, and all she has to do is the devil’s bidding. When love comes knocking, the last thing in the world she wants to do is involve Jake in her twisted world, but the devil’s started up the jukebox and Kathleen has no choice but to learn the steps.
There’s so much I love about this novella! First, the devil isn’t some sweet, sexy, misunderstood angel (although he might think differently), and Kathleen finds herself very unsure, after the horrible price she’s paid, that she wants to keep dancing, even if the alternative isn’t too great what with the lost soul and all. Then, here comes handsome Jake, and the twist in the story involving these two totally took me by surprise. I don’t get surprised too often, so it was a delightful read that kept me up way too late!
Okay, and I have to do the hard-sell: If you haven’t already preordered, grab the ebook at the early-release price of 99 cents. It will be released on September 29. I’m not sure where we are on the print edition, but it IS in the works!
What’s this about a book giveaway? I’m still whittling down my TBR pile, so to enter today’s giveaway, what’s your favorite novel or series featuring the devil? I haven’t read the series, but hear that Darynda Jones’ Charley Davidson series is all kinds of amazing. Others?
