Lightning


From Amazon: In mystic Sleepy Hollow, succubus Lily Night put her prom date, Campbell Jones, into a coma after a night of wild, unbridled sex. She has steered clear of mortals ever since, afraid of damaging them or worse, not to mention the inconvenience of knocking out the power every time they have sex.

Successful architect Campbell Jones has lived with strange powers and a sexy secret since that prom night. He’s buried himself in work to forget the woman who’d dumped him at the ER then vanished from his life without a trace.

Neither Lily nor Campbell have forgotten that night or the love they’d shared. Will a 1Night Stand help them bury their past?


What I Thought: There's something to be said for a short, sexy little novella that knocks you off your feet like this one. This is the first that I have read in the Madame Evangeline 1NS series, but I am really looking forward to reading the rest. Especially the ones written by Taryn! I can't wait to read more about Lily's sisters!
This is the second book I've read by Taryn and I liked it even better than the first!
Lilith is a succubus, and when she was new in her power she nearly killed the love of her life-her prom date Campbell. This scared her enough to swear off her succubus ways and she has stopped having sex with humans entirely ever since THAT night.
Pestered to death by her fellow Succubi sisters Dagney and Zena (who we get to meet in later 1NS stories) Lily gives in and lets them sign her up for Madame Evageline's 1NS dating service. 
Campbell has never forgotten the night he shared with Lily in high school, or the fact that when he woke up from a coma 6 weeks later she had disappeared from his life. He's filled his life since with his job and meaningless sex when he needs it, but nothing compares to his fantasies of Lily. After urging from his brother he signs up for a date with the 1NS dating service.

I am so amazed that in only 40 pages, Taryn is able to develop these characters so well and still fit in earth shattering sex. 

Loved it! I'm sure you will too!!
