When a succubus inadvertently starts a devastating war, the Queen of Night sentences her to one month of mortality—at the end of which Samira must be able to explain why the Night World serves humanity or she'll lose her life.

Before becoming mortal, Samira briefly had been captured by Nicolae, a novice magician who had been tortured by his enemies in the war.

It's to him that she returns in her human form. This book is propelled by the main characters' personalities and their growing relationship. The sexual tension between them crackles, and their physical encounters are, for the most part, believable. Initially whiny at times, Samira becomes more likable as she learns what it is to be human.

Cach engages the reader in this interesting and well-constructed tale, not only with compelling characters but also with well-placed humor and a solid plot. VERY SENSUAL (Sep., 352 pp., $6.99)
