Unholy Embrace - a vampire novel - a succubus appears
The plot thickens as a succubus enters the story.
As I glanced at the people around me, I spied a blonde haired, woman wearing a low-cut, strapless, violet gown, staring at Nessa. Her pale face looked as if sunlight had never touched it. I wondered what was going on.
“Because I am a threat to her,” she said, returning the woman's gaze.
“How so?” What's going on, I wondered.
“She's a succubus who has subjugated the man with her. She’s afraid I might expose her.”
“I thought succubi and incubi were creatures of myth.” I gulped. “Besides, aren’t they supposed to be incorporeal beings that come to their victims in the night?” One moment we enjoyed our intimacy, the next we discussed demonology about a woman not twenty feet away.
“They can only manifest themselves if they ingest enough energy. Even then, they usually maintain a solid state for short periods of time. Look at the man she’s with. See how white he is. His pallor is not from lack of sunlight. She’s drained a substantial portion of his life energy.”
“That's Harry, an acquaintance of mine. Is there something you can do to save him?” How could he have gotten himself entangled with a demon?
“I can kill her. Even so, he might never be the same.”
“Is she dangerous to you?”
“Hardly. She can't possibly hurt me." The tone of her laugh chilled me.
“What are you going to do?”
“I'm going to tell her to leave him or I will destroy her.”
I still found it difficult to accept her lethal potential. Despite her grace and elegant allure, she was a powerful vampire. When she took a few steps forward, the woman whispered to Harry and they exited the garden.
Nessa turned to me and smiled, as if nothing unusual had happened.
Unholy Embrace is a swift paced, action-packed novel about the relationship between a mortal man and his immortal female vampire lover as they fight werewolves, vampires, and other creatures in their effort to kill a soul eating demon.
