A demon, an Unseelie faerie, and a vampire walk into a bar...

This Ivy Granger ebook special contains short stories set in Club Nexus, the hidden haunt of Harborsmouth's paranormal underworld.


A bargain gone wrong leads a highborn Unseelie faerie to life as an enslaved bartender with a taste for revenge.


Being a highly skilled predator doesn't necessarily put you at the top of the food chain at Club Nexus. A southern vampire with a hankering for blood and wanton violence may have bit off more than he can chew.


The demon attorney we love to hate has his eye on a certain rockabilly human. Too bad she's brought a crossbow loaded with holy water dipped bolts for this night on the town.


Just when Jinx needs a carefree girl's night out with Ivy, a smoking hot demon tries to buy her a drink. She really is the unluckiest human on the planet.

My two-bits:

So, I read this out of order. But, no problem as this set of short stories provides backstory for the 3rd book in the series, Burning Bright and works alright as a standalone.

The location of the stories primarily take place in Club Nexus which is an interesting world unto its own. It is filled with colorful characters with shady dealings and back room secrets along with the party scene.

Met and got to know more about demon, vampire and various fae culture in Ivy's paranormal world that is a good supplement to this series.

I am looking forward to see how the budding romance between demon, Forneus, and human, Jinx progresses.
