Happy Labor Day weekend!
It’s that time again. Time for the Sci-Fi Romance Brigade authors to showcase their work. This month, I’m showcasing my naughty Succubus Nights series. This series is on sale for this holiday weekend. (There are some other awesome books on sale this holiday weekend also. Be sure to check out the Labor Day Sale)
Today, I’m introducing you to the three heroines of the series. Say hello to Natina, Anika and Izzie.
In book 1, we meet Natina. She’s crash-landed on Earth. This isn’t the first time she’s wrecked a spacecraft. However, it is the worst wreck she’s ever had. Not only does her ship need fixing, so does she. Two handsome strangers are just what she needs to get better, so she can return home to let her brother know of a threat heading to their world. What’s supposed to be one earthly encounter turns into much more. Who knew the men of Earth could be so… delicious?
In book 2, we meet Natina’s best friend, Anika. Anika travels to Earth with Natina. But she’s not there looking to ‘hook up’. She’s an assassin looking for her target. A male who is called Death by his enemies. It’s her job to find him and kill him. Instead, she loses her heart to him. Who knew hunting down a target could lead to finding love?
In book 3, we meet Natina and Anika’s best friend, Izzie.
Sweet, naïve Izzie aka Izeria, has lived a sheltered life. She thinks her best friends have gotten stranded on Earth. Her overactive imagination comes up with all the worst case scenarios. Either they’ve been devoured by some huge Earth creature from an abyss or they’ve been taken by the planet’s leaders and are being experimented on.
Either way, she has to save them, right? In an attempt to do just that, she hires someone to take her from her homeworld to Earth. That plan backfires when she learns she’s not being taken to Earth, she’s being kidnapped. Her friends will have to save themselves, because she’s too busy trying to stay alive. Who knew being kidnapped by a beast could lead to finding the love of your life?
Now that you’ve met the ladies of the Succubus Nights series, enjoy this excerpt from book 3 – Claimed By The Succubus.
My beast is trying to take over.
Even now, as I escort Izeria to the dining hall, he’s pushing against the barrier that separates drahken from dragon. He’s clawing at the barricade that keeps him inside. Moments ago, he came close to breaking free.
Not only did I hear his growl, so did Izeria. She assumed it was my stomach growling in hunger. Luckily, she’s too naïve to think the worst of me. She senses something is wrong, yet, she doesn’t want to believe me capable of deceiving her, of hurting her.
I should feel guilty for what I’m doing. I don’t. I can’t. Too much is riding on me getting her to my territory. My beast snorts his displeasure, unhappy with our current mission. It’s funny how he can kill viciously, yet he frowns upon lying to our half-breed princess.
I can feel him pacing the recesses of my mind. In this form, he cannot speak to me. Right now, that’s a good thing. I don’t want to hear his thoughts on what is happening. He knew what we’d have to do when we found her.
He knew we’d have to lie or maybe even kidnap her to achieve our goal. His feelings for her can’t change that. Nothing can change what has to be done. The lives of our people are more important than Izeria’s opinion of us.
When we arrive in the dining hall, I step to the side so she and her rodent can enter the room before me. I’m glad I did. The look on her face as she walks into the dining hall is priceless. It’s almost like she’s never been on a spacecraft before.
“This is the biggest dining hall I’ve ever been in. Not only on a ship, but on land also.”
She turns to me and smiles. For a moment, I forget how to breathe. I sense my beast’s pleasure, or is that my own? The line between what I want and what he wants is starting to blur.

Before I finish up, I want to say that the proceeds from my Labor Day sale will be donated to the Salvation Army to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. (http://www.salvationarmyusa.org/)
I have siblings and nieces and nephews in San Antonio, Houston and Beaumont TX. Please keep them and everyone affected by the storm in your thoughts and prayers.
Until next time, be safe and always read past your bedtime.
