Blog Tour: The Mel Series by Demelza Carlton

About The Author

Demelza Carlton has always loved the ocean, but on her first snorkelling trip she found she was afraid of fish. She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.

Sensationalist spin? No – Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.

Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

The Ocean’s Gift series was her first foray into fiction, followed by her suspense thriller Nightmares trilogy. She swears the Mel Goes to Hell series ambushed her on a crowded train and wouldn’t leave her alone.


About The Book


Mel Goes To Hell

The ultimate forbidden love – when Lucifer falls for an angel.

Luce and Mel unearth an age-old conspiracy behind his fall from Heaven which could doom their love for eternity. Yet in the deepest levels of Hell lies a†secret that could hold their salvation.

Eternal damnation awaits any angel who descends into the Pit of Despair, but Mel will move Heaven and Earth to save Lucifer’s soul. Armed with little more than†the fury of a righteous angel, Mel will raise Hell in the name of love.

From the heights of Heaven to the depths of Hell, can love truly conquer all?


Book Excerpt

Luce tried not to show how relieved he felt to hear the HAA door close behind them as they reached the street. “Would you like to grab a coffee or maybe an†early lunch?” he asked Mel.
“Sure,” she said.
They headed to a nearby cafÈ, where they both ordered coffee before sitting at a table at the very back.
Partway between the coffee rush and the lunch rush, Luce†knew the cafÈ’s emptiness wouldn’t last, but they could take advantage of it while it did.
Luce opened his mouth to ask Mel about her relationship with Michael.
“Gah! That was a bloody waste of time,” a loud, male voice complained. Timber creaked as the man sat down at the table beside Luce and Mel.
“No, it wasn’t. Those suits were perfect. You’ll match the bridesmaids and the flowers, so it’ll be a real wedding to remember. Just think of the photos…”†the girl said dreamily as she sat in the chair across from him.
Mel covered her smile, clearly trying not to laugh. She evidently knew more about this couple and their wedding than Luce did.
“I AM thinking of the photos ñ we’ll have them for the rest of our lives. I’m not getting married in a hot pink suit!” the man protested.
Luce burst out laughing.
The girl glared at Luce, then pursed her mouth as she turned her eyes back to her fiancÈ. “I thought you’d do anything for me. Now you won’t even wear the†suit I want you to at our wedding. Maybe you don’t want to marry me at all.” She rose to her full height, which would barely have reached Luce’s chest. She gave†a little snort and a nod, before turning her back on her fiancÈ to stride angrily out of the cafÈ.
Mel reached over and touched the man’s arm. “Tell her you would do anything for her. Swim through sharks, give your life to save hers,” she whispered.
The man pulled his arm irritably away from Mel as he stood up. Luce felt bad for her ñ she’d only tried to help, after all. He hoped she wouldn’t be hurt. After†all, humans weren’t known for taking advice from strangers and maybe the bloke was better off without his bridezilla.
“Jess, I would do almost anything for you!” the man shouted. “I’d swim through a school of sharks at Trigg
Beach to get to you. I’d fend off an entire gang of†bikies if they threatened to hurt you.”
The girl stopped and turned around.
Luce recovered from his shock quickly. “Say you’d walk through Hell for her,” he suggested. “Naked.”
The bloke stared at him. “That’s a fucking crazy idea. Who’d walk through Hell naked?” He turned back to Jess. “And I’d marry you in my birthday suit on†Swanbourne Beach if that’s what you want, but if I make my brothers and my best mate wear pink suits, they’ll kill me before the wedding!”
Some of the other cafÈ patrons started cheering and Jess sported a hot pink blush. “I couldn’t get married on Swanbourne Beach. I’ve already ordered my†dress and my underwear…”
The bloke shoved his way through tables to get to her and the cheering grew louder as the couple kissed.
They left without ordering.
Luce turned back to Mel to find her staring at him. “What?”
“Who would walk through Hell naked?” she asked.
Luce shrugged. “I do it all the time. Well, usually with the horns, the tail, the red skin…you know, the whole works. People seem to expect it on occasion.†Keeps the other demons in order, but clothes would just spoil the effect…” He broke off as he heard the rattle of crockery.
“Your coffee?” a frightened-looking waitress stammered, the tray shaking in her hands.
