Detail on short story: Succubus Seduction
The Queen of the Unseelie Court has commanded the succubus Lilin to take and bring her the soul of Archer, a handsome succesful architect. Three times she attempts the necessary seduction and fails, losing her immortality as a penalty of the Queens wrath. Stripped of her powers and ultimately her memory she goes to Archer because she has no place else to go. He becomes her protector and they fall in love.
At first this story struck me as predictable until we discover a secret about Archer’s true nature. Even then the Lilin/Archer falling into love storyline seemed unremarkable until a final twist nicely shows how remarkable indeed their relationship is and the price they are willing to pay for their love.
