When you read this one, make sure to read the Author’s Note at the beginning. I love to read the evolution of stories and what the author thinks about their characters. This is an especially good one and is a must read!

The thing I really like about this author’s stories, besides the humor and the unique take on the paranormal, are the endings. The endings are perfect. There’s an HEA but the bow on that package isn’t too pretty, but it’s believable and that is so much better.

Drive – Through

For the readers of Vaughn R. Demont's work who wonder where the sexual content is, they're likely to find it here.

"Tales of the City" is a small grouping of 2 short short stories (Drive-Through and Happy Birthday), a novelette (The Line of the Hunt), and a novella (Let the River Run), but for $0.99 there's plenty of story here and new characters brought into the City.

"Drive-Through" is more of a tryst than a story, though it introduces a pair of characters, an incubus and a werecat and somehow

Well I bought this book yesterday and I have already read it twice. I love these stories.

There are four "Drive Through" and "Let the River Run" both focus on an Incubus named Chuck, who manages to make his profession seem real to me. This earns Mr. Demont lots of points in my book because I often find that when I read stories written from the pov of supernatural beings that they come off sort of...forced? Regardless, Chuck is a wonderful character, and the sex in "Drive Through" is Hot and I co

Awesome! Loved it! Needs some serious proofing, though, as it is rife with typos--the worst of Mr. Demont's books in that regard (though still no worse than most m/m). Since a lot of the typos are missing and wrong words, it affects reading a little. But the characters were fantastic, the plots ideal for short-story and novelette formats, and the entire thing was just another fantastic way to expand the mythology of the City. I guess the story with Fred and Daniel was my least favorite, but I en ...more

It's a fantastic read for everyone who loves the City - the lore is interesting, the characters hugely likable (some of them downright lovable, I'm looking at you, Chuck), and as per usual it's all fun and games, and then suddenly you notice you acquired all the FEELS and can't put it down because you're rooting for those guys with all your heart.
