This entertaining paranormal tale combines very sensual elements with appealing characters who are not ashamed to show their affection for each other. I have not had the pleasure of reading the other novellas in this series but there are enough allusions to past events that I am not completely lost. The variety of relationships described (including the incubus/succubus mate and the polyamorous triad) add to the intriguing story which has very suspenseful elements. I wasn’t quite convinced of the attraction between the main characters and I thought that the heroine was a bit foolish and too passive at times but this may be something that would be alleviated by familiarity with the other titles in the series. Nonetheless, I think this was a fun read and I am definitely interested in reading about the other fascinating beings in this world and their stories.
