Okay. I'll take a stab at this...

First, the cover. It's not saying romance to me. That's not to say I don't like the cover. The photo's very clever and eye catching. But it might not be the right choice if your book is a paranormal romance. To get a better feel for what works for paranormal romance covers, I'd do some "window shopping" at Amazon and look at the covers of paranormal romance ebooks for inspiration. Generally, you're going to find one of two things: a couple in some kind of romantic/sexy pose or a half nekkid man.

Second, not a fan of the brownish gold band behind the title. I'd prefer to see an image that's more vertical, so you can avoid blocks of color above/below. I think it looks more professional and fits better with romance cover conventions.

And now, the blurb.

As it is, it's pretty good. But it could be better, stronger.

First, I found a typo or two, so you'll want to go over it a few times to make sure it's clean before you post the final version.

Second, like the cover, it doesn't say paranormal romance. There's a mention of a hot incubus, but it's brief. The rest of the blurb focuses on your heroine and her journey. That should be an easy fix, assuming what you've written is actually a romance. After you mention Darcy, keep him active in the blurb, and highlight the conflicts both between the hero and heroine and the one between the couple and the devil.

I hope that helps!
