Synopsis

Liln has to seduce Archer if she wants to remain an immortal succubus. But things aren’t quite what they seem and she’s about to discover that some things are worth more than immortality.

Thoughts

There’s nothing like a good paranormal romance short story to give you a bit of a break from the piles of papers that you have to read. Or at least, that’s how I feel about it. And McCray’s short story about a succubus with a mission was perfect. There was a great level of lust and passion in the story, but the idea of betrayal and insecurity in the tale was far more enjoyable.

I was kind of expecting Liln to be successful in her attempts at seduction. After all, she’s a succubus and he’s a mere mortal. But, as with all good short stories, it doesn’t quite work out that way. Rather, mortality and a happily ever after is on the horizon. And, frankly, I much rather that ending than one that is filled with lustful guilt at the turning of the last page. Although, don’t get me wrong, I have a few of those stories sitting on my shelves, and they might be making their way into my “next read’ pile.
