What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
INCLUDES BONUS CONTENT NOT AVAILABLE IN THE SERIAL!
In a world where demons live in hiding among humans, Adie Pond is a stranded succubus locked out of dreamland. She wants to live a quiet life on the corporeal plane, fit in with humans, and have as much of a normal life as a demon can. She thinks she’s come up with a great alternative to sexing humans to death: open a bakery! The happy feelings humans let off while indulging in sweet treats is just what she needs to feed her own cravings!
But her plans hit a roadblock when a chance encounter brings her to the attention of three sexy demons with an agenda of their own. Tobias, Emil, and Kellen want to stay on the human plane just as much as Adie does, and to do that, they need a succubus. Lucky for them, Adie fits all their requirements.
Only Adie refuses to simply give into their demands. Her normal life doesn’t include demonic complications. She can be just as determined as they can, especially when they try to force her into a corner. Will these four demons come to a compromise, or will more than sparks fly in their battle of wills?
Includes Serial Parts + bonus chapter!
Thoughts on Succubus Bargain
I love incubus and succubus stories… there is just something about their mythology that I find captivating. This collection takes that mythology, expands it, warps it and sets it on fire – in the best way possible.
These first five serials are all about introductions and ambiance, a push towards world building that sets the stage for the rest of the series and allows a true foundation for whats to come. I loved Adie and her determination to open a bakery – and why. That is key, as it tells the reader, and the demons, who she is beyond the power of the succubus. It’s a fascinating dichotomy and plays out well.
As for the guys – well, in this first collection, they are just kinda there. When they first appear, there is attitude and presence, yet that quickly fades as Adie takes over the story, which is how it should be, mostly.
First Person, single POV

Hard to explain, but adult.
