Hot as Hell

She’s beautiful. She’s enchanting. She’s your fondest dream and, the morning after, your worst nightmare. She’s sweet and sublimely submissive. She’s powerful and fully in charge. She promises safety but danger lurks in her eyes.

A succubus is a sexual vampire, a shape-shifting temptress who steals the life force from her victim—but what a way to go! Some say she visits her victims in their dreams; others say she seduces them in the flesh. In Seductress, award-winning editor D. L. King has crafted a singularly sexy and mysterious compilation that will have you lying in bed all night wondering who might visit. You’ll enjoy threesomes and moresomes in Evan Mora’s fiendish “Star-Crossed,” which casts Romeo and Juliet as the undead cruising for pretty young lovers through the centuries. “Be careful what you wish for” comes true in Angela Caperton’s tale when “The Sorcerer’s Catch” has the allure of a dominatrix demon lover. We journey down to Hell in Kannan Feng’s enticing story of the Queen of Lust, who captures her most desired prey in “Before a Fall.” Supernaturally sensual and utterly captivating, the fantasy lovers in Seductress will whisk you where you’ve never been before.

 

Review: Tantalizing, Tempting and just down right sexy!!

Grab a glass of wine and turn the lights down a bit. Find your comfy spot, and get ready for a ride wilder than the average fantasy. Twenty-one short stories in 200 pages featuring the alluring Succubus. The Queen of seduction, the sexual vampire, using sex as their weapon of choice, they give the ultimate pleasure while draining your life force. This book is a 5 on the heat scale.

The anthology opens on the highest of notes in my option with the best of the stories, Aurelia T. Evans’ “Harvest”. It’s a times old tale of boy summing a Succubus to have a wild time and he gets schooled in a few hot and kinky ways. Let me say, HOT!!! “Deliverance” by Jay Lawrence has given us an old school feeling ghost story. We get the succubus/vampire version Romeo and Juliet in Evan Mora’s, “Star-Crossed”. I think I like this ending a bit better. Like your kinky play in the kitchen, Nan Andrews’ “Sweet Tooth”, will deliver for you!! Mina Murray’s “The Lonely Huntress”, left me feeling like I wanted to be the pray. These are my highlights of the book. I can’t say I loved every story, but I can say there is no bad story in this anthology.

This book gives you everything promised and more. I loved reading so many strong and demanding women. I never knew there were so many sides to the Succubus, more than just power and hunger, and each author gives each one a unique flair. I found that just like women, no two are the same. There is a good bit of whit and humor though out this book that adds even more power to this read. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a hot read. Very erotic and to the point, my only complaint, I wish some of the stories would have been longer.
