Story Overview:
In mystic Sleepy Hollow, succubus Lily Night put her prom date, Campbell Jones, into a coma after a night of wild, unbridled sex. She has steered clear of mortals ever since, afraid of damaging them or worse, not to mention the inconvenience of knocking out the power every time they have sex.

Successful architect Campbell Jones has lived with strange powers and a sexy secret since that prom night. He’s buried himself in work to forget the woman who’d dumped him at the ER then vanished from his life without a trace.

Neither Lily nor Campbell have forgotten that night or the love they’d shared. Will a 1Night Stand help them bury their past?


My Review

Ten years ago, Lily and Campbell had the most amazing prom night ever. Unfortunately, it left him in a coma for two months, something succubus, Lily, has never forgotten. Since then she’s a bit gunshy about her sexuality and never considers sleeping with mortals anymore. Despite the fact that her practically celibate nature is killing her, she’s sure this is the best route. Finally her sisters convince her to use Madame Eve’s services.

Campbell was irrevocably changed that prom night and even though it left him in a coma for two months, he’s never forgotten Lily. He still wants her and wonders what happened to her because after that night she completely disappeared.

I loved this story. This was definitely a love rediscovered story. It had such an interesting twist with the succubus aspect to it. I loved the creativity of it and the fact that both these characters continued to yearn secretly after the other, even all these years later. It was a very natural feeling story even with the paranormal side. It was also incredibly sexy. I could feel the tension between the two leap off the page. I truly enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the others in this series about the succubus sisters by Taryn Kincaid.

All this week, Decadent is celebrating the birthday of their 1NS imprint. I will be hostessing and reviewing 1NS books all week long, too. Join in the celebration!
