This short story is set in the same world as ONLY HUMAN, but the hero and heroine of this one are even more unusual. Take Molly, for example. She doesn’t look her age, which her driver’s license claims is fifty. In fact, Molly has not-so-fond memories of turn-of-the-century London—the turn of the nineteenth century, that is. But that’s because Molly is a succubus. “Not a demon,” she insists. “I’m cursed, not demonic.”
When Molly stumbles across a gorgeous young man with a faulty memory who’s being chased by some very scary folks, she can’t resist giving him a helping hand. But he’s no more what he seems than she is. They have to solve the riddle of his origin before his past—or hers—catches up with them.
