My review
The Devilin Fey is a novella made up of two stories - “The Devilin Fey" and “Tongue Tied”. Both focus on life as a succubus in one way or another. (Note there may be a couple of spoilers below)

The Devilin Fey features Catlin Fey who at the start of the book is planning on a scathing article about Zac Walsh, best selling author of “Seduction 101: All The Dirt on Women”, she want’s to highlight the damage his ideas are doing to society. However she ends up falling for all his lines, and nothing like in her dreams. The man in her dreams is so different, she finds out why when she goes for a walk to the beach and see Lucius in his true incubus form, wings and all. She should not have been able to see him like that!

Catlin gradually notices some strange changes after a few encounters with Lucius, she can read peoples desires and know their love history. She goes on a journey which lets out her inner devil, human by day succubus by night, having revenge on Zac on the way.

I enjoyed The Devilin Fey, I like the way Catlin took becoming a kind of succubus in her stride, simply adapting to it and finding Lucius along the way!

Tongue Tied is a short story about a lesbian succubus who finds something different about Adriana and watches in on her life to find out if her instincts are right. This is the only story I’ve come across so far with a gay succubus, I’d kind of expected the usual going after men but Tongue Tied made a refreshing change. However, if you don’t like F/F stories then this one may not be for you.
