Review - Slave to Her Desires

Immortality is not always a blessing. Turned into a succubus against her will, Olivia Rhodes has lived the past 120 years as a slave to her cruel and vindictive vampire master. She's escaped him, but he's closing in fast. Her only hope? The fallen angel that abandoned her when she was turned, David Thornton.

But David's not the cold-hearted monster she's always thought he was...nor did he abandon her. And when Olivia's hatred of David turns to desire, will her need for revenge against her vampire master destroy the one beautiful thing in her life, or will she find a way to make David love her despite the creature she's become?

This novella (34,000 words), features a succubus enslaved to her needs, a sleeping beauty, and some explosive sex on a monastery floor.

(Note: While this novella is set in the world of the Succubus Diaries, it is not necessary to read the series to enjoy the novella.)

My review:

This is the first story set in this world I have read. And I loved it. I was drawn in from the beginning. The characters were well developed. The story happened at a good pace without any lagging. I couldn't put it down.

Olivia and David made great main characters. You wanted to find out more about them and wanted them to come together and get the ending they deserve.

The setting was believable and well developed. While not overly elaborate it was perfect settings for the story, well described and easy to picture the events taking place.

For anyone who is already a fan of Jill Myers, don't miss this story. Or for anyone who has been considering reading her series like I have. This is a great story to read and get a feel for the world she has created. If you are at all like me you will want to read more right away.
