A Surprising Summons
As she makes her way into the mortal world, Loreline is pleasantly stunned to see the man before her.
He may be lonely, but Konstantin is anything except stupid.
Loreline cannot remember the last time it has felt so good. In the years ahead, she will meet this lover again, although it is her who counts the years.
This story has a sweet melancholy feel that draws you to these two characters.
She runs a very tight ship, yet Lucy is willing to accommodate the needs of her customers when necessary.
Somehow, Mr. Field has found himself seriously indebted and can see no way out.
Lucy hears Mr. Field’s pleas for an extension on his payments, but she has other ideas on how he can repay his debt.

Alice may have her own agenda, but what she does for Rachel makes it all worthwhile.
Before A Fall
It is a dangerous game he plays. Still, Aquila would not want it any other way.
The Queen of Lust has not earned her title. She has taken it.
One misspoken word could end his existence, which makes this time with Her Majesty so exquisitely passionate.
The edge of danger is razor sharp for Aquila, but it unleashes the sexual tension to blazing heights.
After watching and waiting, Bern makes his choice.
Lucy knows how to play the game, reeling in the man she wants inch by inch.
Money is of little consequence for a man like Bern, so he expects to get what he pays for. Lucy intends to do just that.
The higher the stakes, the more exciting the game, unless you are the one being played.

Their love never seems to be enough to overcome the obstacles, and this one is huge. Romeo a vampire, Juliet a succubus—both are immortal, but neither can be what the other needs.
Never underestimate the power of love, especially when someone as savvy as Juliet is part of the mix.

The haunting quality of this story is as sweet as it is spooky.

Every quiver in her voice unleashes Theodictus’s desire to dominate her even more.
Very few have Syllabelle’s gift, but she must play it perfectly if she wants to survive. Theodictus thrives on Syllabelle’s tribute, which is exactly what she is hoping for.

Making the world a sweeter place has just gotten a whole lot more interesting.
The Girl on the Egyptian Escalator
Like watching a train wreck, Spencer cannot help but stare at her.
Having men under her control is as easy for Sekhmet as breathing.
Needing to see the woman again, Spencer finally tracks her down. He has never known anything as powerful as this attraction, and it is beginning to scare him.
Too much of a good thing leads this man to all sorts of trouble.
The Sorcerer’s Catch
He is studying pay-offs for Adam as he now has her right where he wants her.
Anastasia is as surprised by the young man’s summons as she is excited.
Adam will have her forever if he works well. His skills are better than she expects, although he still has ways to be as good as she knows he can be.
A young man’s bold move lends an air of danger and excitement to this story.
The funeral has been particularly hard for Father William Frazier, but the night is not over yet.
She comes to him like she has done with his predecessor.

Temptation can be exquisite in its torture.

The dreams are making Althea restless, making her want in a way she has not for a very long time.
She is exactly what Lugh has been looking for.
The feelings Lugh evokes in Althea leave her begging for more. He is everything she wants, yet something else entirely.
Sensuality and seduction pour from these characters through every word and action.
Neither Love nor Money
It is killing Max to see her this way, and he knows it cannot last.
Keeping him safe is the only thing that concerns Bernadetta.
Max knows what Detta needs. Still, she refuses his help. He will not stand by a minute more and watch her suffer. It is up to him to make the move.
This may be what it means to love someone to death.
At first, Hayden assumes it is a wrong number. Now he is not so sure.
Once she finds the one she wants, it is only a matter of time.
The texts get more and more explicit, and Hayden cannot help but respond. Hook, line and sinker—he is caught.
The right bait is all it takes to reel this man in.
Eternity can get awfully lonely, especially when Victoria refuses to pass it along.
She is so beautiful Brad just has to meet her.
His youth and boldness are refreshing, just what Victoria needs for the night. What she does not count on is his kindness and caring.
It is easy to like a story where the heartfelt feelings are as fantastic as the passion.
Moon Like A Sickle, Wind Like A Knife
After the breakup, Jane is very cautious about letting herself feel.
Wanting her, Alison is tired of waiting.
Allowing Alison in goes against Jane’s better judgment, but she never imagines how cathartic it will be.
When she opens the door, Jane welcomes in a whole new world of possibilities.
The job of a succubus is getting harder and harder for Anixana and her sisters.
Seeing a problem, Ruby finds a modern day solution.
Skeptical at first, the girls decide at least to try Ruby’s idea. The results are better than any of them could have hoped for.
Also immortals need to stay current with the times, as seen in this fun and sexy read.
As a photojournalist, it is easy for her to have access to soldiers as well as civilians.
Their unit is in very hostile territory, so concentration is the key to getting out alive.
The bomb that goes off severely wounds her driver, but she is so hungry it is going to be hard to keep him alive. She has one choice—to borrow energy from Ellis and Mac.
Fighting to stay alive only heightens the sexual power radiating from these characters.
Love and affection have little to do in the eternal life of a succubus. As seen in these stories, it is more often than not about pure need. The exchange of sexual energy between these characters, however, is tantalizing all on its own. The few stories here that do bring real emotions into the mix are in my opinion the most intriguing and enjoyable. Each author has a particular spin on this theme, so there is certainly something for every taste.
