Isabel, a sultry and seductive modern day succubus, discovers too late that she has made the wrong choice when she picked a young man who happened to be a student of demonology. William decides to keep her around as his own, trapping her, fully aware of the dangers... Is he falling for her, or she for him? Only time will tell...

Isabel goes out to a bar looking for her needed fix. She encounters William, who knows exactly what Isabel is. After a night of being together, there is a connection between them. William takes a risk, Isabel relents, and then fate takes a hand in their lives and what comes afterwards.
I liked Isabel for several reasons, the main one being that she has a heart, cares that she doesn’t kill others because of what she is, and tries to protect William. She’s not quite stereotypical in that way, nor does she have horns or a tail, but regardless she’s intelligent, has personality, and gives a damn which, considering the other works in this series, is a refreshing change.
William is every bit as interesting as Isabel. He’s smart, he is willing to take the risk to tell her that he loves her, and in the end, offers Isabel himself for the simple reason that he cares about Isabel. He doesn’t care about the succubus. He’s kind, caring, and that comes through quite clearly in his mannerisms and what happens in the story.
The erotica is a lovely hot flash that isn’t over the top but leads quite well into the latter part of the story where both characters have to some to terms with the possibility that they love each other. There is intimacy, passion, and a sense of them belonging together.
The conclusion of the work is, in many ways, sad and tragic, the events being clearly telegraphed in the prior pages. But there is a neat little twist involving an angel, a truth, and a gift that Isabel is given that I adored in spite of the somewhat awkwardness of the last page or so of the story.
With all that I liked, all of the positives, there are still a lot of problems in the work. One glaring point is that at one point Isabel’s nickname is Izzy, then it switches in the next sentence to Issy. That really bothered me. Then, again, as happened in the prior works, there are a lot of editing mistakes, spelling mistakes, awkward sounding conversation, sentence structure that made no sense at all. Many silly and minor mistakes that a single editing pass could have fixed.
It really is a shame because this is a really good love story about two characters and all of this never should have taken away as much as it did from the work. It is a stand-alone story, it has a beginning, middle and end, which I felt worked. But nonetheless so many mistakes and issues hurt what otherwise was a lovely story that I really wanted to be better than it was.
Three and a half out of five pitchforks.
Really it is the best, by far, of the three works, but all of the spelling mistakes, grammar errors and most of all, Isabel’s nickname switching from Izzy to Issy just hurt what otherwise was a really lovely story. It’s a shame because the work really does deserve a better rating, but I can’t overlook all of the flaws.
