My 2nd collection, "A Succubus for Valentine's Day and other tales of Perilous Pleasures" is now out (sort of).
Here is the obligatory blurb:
Alluring, exotic, delectable, sexy... dangerous.
M. E. Hydra returns with a second collection of thirteen sizzling stories featuring seductive succubi, amorous aliens and other sexy femme fatales.
“A Succubus for Valentine’s Day” shows the perils of letting a succubus play cupid. Two tourists discover a dark secret lurking in Amsterdam’s red light district in “Venus of the Red Lights”. In “Knight vs Succubus”, a knight battles for his life and soul against a cunning and seductive demon. A man finds out his pleasure planet of blue-skinned alien babes is not as it seems in “The Spiders of Thomisoidus”. And finally, a young man has a very special date in “A Summer Dance with a Succubus”.
You will be enthralled, aroused, and terrified in equal measure by these and other tales of wicked, sensual predators. They’ll give you pleasures beyond your wildest dreams, and terrors beyond your darkest nightmares...
This is my second collection of short stories, first published in 2011 through Excessica. I've republished it with a new cover and afterword (and a thorough editing pass to fix anything I missed the first time around).
You can find it at
It should also have updated at Smashwords, but check the preview first to make sure you're getting the updated version (the copyright page should mention cover art by Wombo AI and a 2nd edition date of 2022, which should indicate it's the correct version):
I also uploaded it to Google Play this morning, so it should go live there in a couple of days. Check my author page:
Where it isn't currently available, sadly, is Amazon. I'm working on it and hopefully will have it available at some point, but I'm having to deal with staggering levels of incompetency from Amazon KDP's support department. I'll put up a post describing my 'experiences' in full grisly details in a few days. Kafka-esque nightmare doesn't even begin to cover it.
UPDATE: The problems at Amazon appear to have been resolved. You can now find it there as well:
