    A- rating...

    My Review:
    Okay, so now I've read book #2 in this series. (I also did a review of book #1, Banshee Charmer, and you can find it right below this one if you are reading this review on my blog, Smitten with Reading.) I have to say I liked this book a bit better than the first, mainly because now the world is somewhat is established for us. And what an interesting world it is....with a lot of paranormal creatures you don't normally see in PNR books....like salamanders, which is what the hero is in this book.

    The heroine in this book is Marisol, a succubus who we met in book #1. Her younger sister has disappeared, without a trace, and Mari knows something is wrong. When her sister was a teenager, she was attacked and she is just now starting to recover and learn how to live a normal life again. Marisol is a cop, so she immediately goes to her supervisor with her concerns. Quickly things escalate as Agent Costa (Valerio) shows up with information about a spree of kidnappings around the country that have been centered around succubus.

    Even though I figured out fairly early in the story who the bad guy was, I still had fun reading the story and thought that the suspense was done really well. There was more of a sense of danger in this book that definitely ramped up the excitement while reading it. There is definitely a romance aspect to these books, but I feel like it runs secondary to the mystery/suspense story line.

    That being said though, I really, really liked Agent Costa and his interactions with Mari. I can't imagine the difficulties there are living life as a succubus, men either wanting you or mistrusting you because of their reactions to you. Agent Costa definitely falls into the second group. He doesn't trust Mari....at all. Mari's is scared to death for her sister and dealing with a difficult partner certainly isn't helping her stress levels. There was a good amount of conflict between them with the underlying sexual tension to really keep it interesting. The author found a great balance of that chemistry in this book.

    But you know, I'm a romance girl. These books just end with more of a Happily for Now type of ending. I want more...but I know, that's totally a me-thing, so I am trying not to let that fact sway my impression of these novels. I think the publisher is pushing these more towards the mystery/suspense side rather than the romance. But if you're like me and like the romance first and foremost, be warned...these books may leave you feeling just slightly dissatisfied in that regard at the end.

    a 3 chili pepper heat rating paranormal romance

    Succubus Lost is charming, sexy, and well-written. This is the second book in the series and focuses on one of the characters introduced in book one. However, it can be read as a stand-alone. Some of the finer points will be a bit vague, but nothing that is crucial to the plot rather more background information.
    Both of the books have gorgeous women and charming, handsome men, and sexy scenes. The heat level, however, is more PG-13 than R rated and would be alright for more mature teens.
    This is a cute series with a fun and interesting mixing of paranormal with humans. In this case, the paranormals are police and FBI-like people. It’s like a tamer version of the Furry United Coalition series by Eve Langlais.
    I give these books 4 out of 5 clouds and a heat rating of 3 chili peppers.
