Six Sentence Sunday — Succubus Steam #2 #SixSunday
Welcome to “Six Sentence Sunday”. Thank you for visiting and especially for any comments you might be inclined to leave.
My six today is from my forthcoming January Romance on the Go release, Succubus Steam, another story from The Succubus Chronicles.
In this six, Violet, our heroine, provides some backstory:
The double-edged sword of being the product of a succubus mother and a mortal father is that while I am not a predator and can be satisfied, for a time, through self-administered sexual release, Society does not look kindly upon a wanton. A succubus half-breed, such as myself, who hobnobs with the highest echelons of London society, is bride in a difficult marriage of extremes. Any act that wants of propriety, and I would find myself ushered out on the first coach to the wilds of Cornwall. My half-sisters dwell there to feed upon the thick abundance of sailors passing through her ports. Yet, because my lifespan is finite, I do prefer the company of mortals to those who prey upon them, even if I must periodically engage in discreet acts of congress. My full-blooded succubus sisters are preternatural, but they are parasitic to mortals as are their loathsome incubus fathers and cousins.

Violet sounds like she’s formulating a solution to her situation. I think she’ll find a way to have her cake and eat it too.
I can’t believe I have to wait another month for my succubus fix…
I like Violet, I actually feel for her and I hope Sandra is right. Congrats on Nano!!
I like Violet, too…A succubus who’s more than just another pretty face! 😉 I like her brutal honesty and detached attitude, too.
I really liked the way you’ve written this backstory. I specially liked this sentence: “A succubus half-breed, such as myself, who hobnobs with the highest echelons of London society, is bride in a difficult marriage of extremes.” I seem to grasp her frustration and her distaste for the echelons of London society in it. Great six!
By the way, love the snowflakes on the screen! hehe
ooh, I’m intrigued!
Ah, I like her already!
Great peak into her predicament! Doesn’t look like she has a smooth road ahead…
This was like … “Jane Austen, Succubus Half-Breed.” LOVE. IT. 🙂
Oh, man, I never considered what it would be like for a half-succubus. Talk about belonging nowhere. Nicely written six, Lila. 🙂
Yeah, I can see how that would be a tough line to walk. Thanks for sharing!
