Lissa owns a club where she takes care of her “girls,” succubi demons she rescued from abusive masters. They provide pleasure and feed on souls —never enough to kill, just enough to survive. Unlike other succubi, Lissa has an extra skill; she can read minds during sex, as she’s feeding on her lover’s soul. This skill has captured the attention of the Division, who need Lissa’s power to get inside the mind of someone who may know why innocents are being killed. Trouble is, the first person they want her to read is Vincent Rand, a man she’s falling for. Can she betray him to save her own life?
Vincent Rand knows Lissa is a succubus and yet he still can’t get her out of his mind. And he has bigger problems to deal with. He’s been sent to do whatever it takes to find out who’s killing innocents. With trouble brewing between the Alliance of vampires and werewolves, the sooner they uncover the killer, the better.
