A Review of On Becoming a Succubus by Lillian C. Sisk

On Becoming a Succubus by Lillian C. Sisk

Stories about succubi or incubi set in historical times face several problems, not the least of which is how women were treated at that time and having to overcome that aspect of the storytelling.

The Naughty Succubus Part 2: Mysterious Beautiful Strangers by Becca Lusk

A review of the second work in The Naughty Succubus series by Becca Lusk today on the Tale. I reviewed the first work a short time ago and found that the mystery surrounding the characters interested me, but the author needed to edit things a bit more than they had done so. As an aside, …
