“A Knight with the Boss”
When her father sells the family-owned video-gaming design business to a large competitor, Tory Knight learns to her dismay that the sale comes with a one-year non-compete agreement. She has no choice but to work for Gorman Designs if she wants to keep doing what she loves most.
Rafe Gorman is shocked to discover the asset he paid triple market value to acquire—lead programmer, VC Knight—is not the fatherly small businessman he bought out, but his very talented and desirable daughter, Victoria Carruthers-Knight.
Tory’s orientation session quickly heats up as Rafe takes his newest employee under his wing and to other levels of employment neither expects nor quite knows how to handle.
Succubus Bites is a collection of dark erotica short stories in five groupings — Reformation, Rage, Recreation, Reconciliation and Redemption — featuring seventeen succubi, sixteen completely different settings, sixteen tasty sin nuggets. Dystopian, space opera, historical, contemporary, zombies, pirates and vampires and a dash of cyber-punk offer readers an erotic sampler.
A woman damned… Priscilla Goodnight, a widow in the harsh Kansas frontier, has a cattle ranch to run. She can’t afford to reveal any cracks in her tough exterior or indulge in sexual liaisons with her ranch hands. But a hungry succubus can only exercise so much self-restraint, making discretion, disguise and memory-wiping her top managerial skills.
The mysterious stranger who knows her darkest secret… Priscilla doesn’t remember hiring the man with the wily smile and the flannel voice. At all. Men as physically appealing as Hugo Desmond rarely escape her bed, let alone her memory. And how is he able to move so fast, yet nobody notices but her?
Is she his target, his mission or his bait? Hugo is a gargoyle—a specially-trained executioner—sent to purge the west of evil. With succubi falling squarely in demon territory, Priscilla has every reason to fear him … yet she can’t stay away. Hugo says he needs her help and wants to save her soul. But is redemption possible for a woman as wicked as Priscilla, or will love thaw her heart just enough for Hugo to crush it?
After her husband’s death, Kristy Kreem (no relation to the donut) is on the mend emotionally, but her body hasn’t fared so well.

Blake Smith remembers Kristy as the stuck up cheerleader who stood him up at Homecoming. Even though sixteen years have passed, he can’t resist torturing his newest client a little more than usual. But one thing is certain–hell will freeze over before he will ever let her get under his skin again.
TASMIN lives in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where the few survivors must fight for scarce resources. Picked up as a hitchhiker, she makes a deal with her opportunistic savior; only a starving succubus is not always capable of reigning in her appetite.
