Book Title: SCALES, Coven of Desire
Character Name: Ink
- How would you describe your family or your childhood?
I was born, if one could call it that, when a hedonistic man took a vow of chastity and via virulent prayer tore me from his psyche. Incubi don’t have childhoods. We pop into this world fully formed and ready to debauch.
- What was your greatest talent?
I’ve found it’s much easier to show than be accused of bragging, but alas, I am bound to my witch so you’ll have to take my word for it.
- Significant other?
I suppose she is significant in that I am bound to her across the realms of the universe; however, incubi do not dwell in the palm-sweaty, awkward existence that is mortal dating. It is rare for us to spend more than a night with one of our prey, for rather obvious reasons. Layla is the exceptional mortal to experience my numerous skills over and over—often four or five times a night.
- Biggest challenge in relationships?
You presume I would care about the thoughts or convoluted feelings of others, beyond the pulsing blood flow to their loins, of course. Even if she is having a tempestuous fight with her werewolf or being teased by the ethereal touch of the ghost, it is not my problem. I shall be there waiting for her when she needs a proper tongue lashing.
- Where do you live?
A most curious question. Do incubi, do any of us mortal sins, truly live? We cannot die so do we live, or are we merely existing until the Celestials grow weary of their experiment and wipe away the stain of the universe? Oh, you meant where I sleep. That’s easy. I don’t.
- Do you have any enemies?
There is the occasional jealous spouse threatening to geld me, but I would not call them enemies, more obstacles. Upon my ignoble birth there was a woman, an incubus like me, who took me under her wing not as a protege but a toy. Whatever she wants with me, I will protect Layla from her claws.
- Do you have children, pets, both, or neither?
Does the werewolf count? I have had him at the end of a leash once, much to his annoyance.
- What do you do for a living?
I dine upon the life force of ecstatic individuals via my many talented appendages. Oh, you refer to that confounding exchange of paper humans do. I’ve never had much need for it in my centuries of existence.
- Greatest disappointment?
That is not yours to know. It happened four hundred years ago and, besides, I no longer care. It was the witch’s fault in the first place.
- Greatest source of joy?
Smearing the butter of peanuts between two toaster pastries then battering and deep frying it all.
- What do you do to entertain yourself or have fun?
My bond seems to believe I should keep her preferred positions close to my chest. Aside from the other three men who know and enjoy them. What time I have that is not spent in erotic devotion I spend on the game Galactic Sheep Wars. I’ve nearly become Emperor of the entire Paddock star system.
- What keeps you awake at night?
Sins do not sleep, both literally and metaphorically. I spend the hours of midnight until dawn, when not ravaging my bond in bed, trying my claws at new skills and hobbies.
- What is the most pressing problem you have at the moment?
Keeping my bond from letting her weeping heart put herself in mortal danger. If it’s not the dangerous Mr. White, it’s a vengeful werewolf pack, a water genie, or the witch hunters all trying to harm her.
- Is there something that you need or want that you don’t have? For yourself or for someone important to you?
What could a sin want other than someone to ply? What a foolish question. I’ve never wanted for anything. From the very moment I spawned into this world against my wishes, I’ve taken all that I could need. Want. Ha. Wandering lonely through this forgetting world is all I could ever want.
- Why don’t you have it? What is in the way?

Everything that could go wrong in Layla' s life has. There' s a murderous werewolf cult, Mr. White plotting to destroy the world, and worst of all— her mother. Her boys aren' t doing much better. The demon' s questioning his place in Layla' s life. The ghost is growing stronger and losing himself in the process. The werewolf is fighting against the newest addition no matter how hard he tries to make nice. They deserve a break to a private cabin on a lake.
Okay, so they' ll have to put in some labor to help bring the resort up to snuff for the summer season, but a free vacation is still an escape. There' s still nights laying under the stars on Cal' s chest, licking s' mores off Ink' s abs by a bonfire, being serenaded by Daniel on a boat ride, and snuggling beneath Garavel' s wings. Evil, however, doesn' t take a break.
All the past demons come home to roost as the coven face not only what they were running from but a lake monster who may not be so mythical after all. In this steamy and heart-racing entry to Coven of Desire, Layla fights to protect her men from the demons both outside and in.

Ellen Mint adores the adorkable heroes who charm with their shy smiles and heroines that pack a punch. She has a needy black lab named after Granny Weatherwax from Discworld. Sadly, her dog is more of a Magrat.
When she’s not writing imposing incubi or saucy aliens, she does silly things like make a tiny library full of her books. Her background is in genetics and she married a food scientist so the two of them nerd out over things like gut bacteria. She also loves gaming, particularly some of the bigger RPG titles. If you want to get her talking for hours, just bring up Dragon Age.
