The Book: 
A paranormal romance novella of two stories, featuring an incubus and succubus. Story #1 features a demure young woman unleashing the "devil in" her, through the intimacy with an incubus. Story #2 features a voyeuristic succubus driven by jealousy and a dangerous fixation.

The Review: 
The heroine, Caitlin Fey, is a reserved, good girl who is all about her job, and somehow, against character, allows herself to be duped and seduced by an obvious playboy sleaze-ball, Zac Walsh. After the substandard round of sex is over, Caitlin feels not only disappointed but guilty for “cheating” on her dream lover, a man who has been visiting her while she’s asleep.
Deciding she needs to clear her head, she takes a walk on the beach and encounters a man who resembles the man from her dreams. For a moment she thinks he has wings on his back, but in the next moment they are gone and she dismisses the idea as a fantasy.
Lucius and Caitlin talk long into the night, both falling in love with the other.
When Caitlin discovers that Lucius is a Succubus, she’s okay with it at first but soon realizes she is developing the same sexual powers Lucius has. He tells her she is becoming part Incubus and she has to decide what kind of Incubus she wants to be—one seeks vengeance or one who brings passion and joy?
I enjoyed this story. The author did a wonderful job making the characters feel real and flawed. The relationship between Caitlin and Lucius was a little thin and kind of boring after their first meeting. I kept waiting for things to pick up between them, for them to go through the intensity of feelings and expressions of falling in love.


In Tongue-Tied, the heroine, Amanda, is looking for a connection and tries to find it through sex. Unfortunately, she’s less than satisfied. The spying succubus, who watched her get it on, thought the sex was lackluster as well, and wonders why Amanda chose a man who was incapable of satisfying her. She knows if she were given the chance, she would be able to satisfy the lovely Amanda so she invisibly follows her and watches as Amanda gratifies herself, and then approaches her when Amanda is half asleep. To her immense surprise, Amanda not only sees her, but kisses her.
Soon the succubus finds she can’t stay away from Amanda because she is haunted by the question of whether or not Amanda “likes” girls, and more than that, likes her, the succubus. When it becomes apparent that Amanda does in fact like girls, the succubus becomes determined to be the girl in Amanda’s life.
While this was a short, fast read and had interesting characters, the story was also confusing as many things were hinted at but never explained, or simply left unsaid. The characters are worth reading about in Tongue-Tied, just as they are in The Devilin Fey.
