Adventures of a sexy seductress.

“I’m not your average monster. In the past, I have toppled, liberated, and even ruled kingdoms. Believe me, I’m over that lifestyle. My motto is, ‘Learn from the past; love in the present’.

“By day, I’m Catalina Purdy, proprietor of Purdy Antiques. By night, under cover of darkness, I expose my true nature.

“I enjoy; long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners, easy men, and feasting off the chemicals they produce when sexually aroused.

“I also love my job. I am eternally thirsty for the chance to hunt down rare, exotic pieces. However, I’m not hard to please, I’ll take any piece I can get, and I always get what I want.”

Catalina, Queen of the NightlingsNow, I know exactly what you’re thinking, “Not another vampire.” Yes, all the signs are there, but I adamantly refute the title. I am a Nightling. Not any insignificant Nightling though. I am Catalina, Queen of the Nightlings. Still confused? It’s easy to understand why. Fangs, bloodsucking power, and ageless beauty. Yes, I possess all the telltale signs of your classic vamp. Alas, I am not one of those adrenaline-sucking egomaniacs.

So, what exactly is a Nightling, you ask? Over the centuries we have been called many names. Succubus, Lorelei, seductress, mantrap, siren, enchantress, lady of the night, the list goes on and on. Any of those ring a bell? Let me explain.

The realm of bloodsuckers is not as black and white as the world has always thought. To be truthful, besides our choice of chemical needs, we are quite alike. Let me break it down so there is absolutely no confusion.

I am an ancient creature. I was born as I am. Others have been made, but not me. I have fangs that retract, which are capable of extracting the hormone oxytocin from the human bloodstream. My razor-sharp fangs work two ways. First, they extract the hormones I need to survive, and second, they pump back in the blood you will most definitely need. However, I have complete control as to whether I give back the fundamental fluid. I usually do. Usually.

Oxytocin is the hormone that is secreted when the body feels pleasure, arousal, or passion. Enter the succubus. The hormone keeps me strong, fed, and eternally beautiful. On the other hand, vamps extract adrenaline from their victims, which is why they use fear to extract the chemicals they need. And yes, they have the power to return the human blood as well, but they are a grumpier sort of monster.

Death does not come easy to either of us. Light, crosses, and holy water are completely useless. However, garlic does taint the blood, and vamps say it inhibits the manufacturing of adrenaline. I think they just like to whine about anything they can.

As far as I know, death only comes from dismemberment. However, my bones are as strong as steel, and my skin like marble. You really have to piss off one of your own kind to get killed. I generally try to avoid such situations. The phrase, “I’m a lover not a fighter” was originally coined by me.

4 STARS: Lady Erynn’s Honest Reviews

As far as short stories go, this one is full of great information. It’s written from Catalina’s point of view, which gives us an inside look into the life of a supernatural queen. She is ageless, sexy, cunning, and knows exactly what she wants and how to get it. She is not above using her sexual powers as a distraction, and the world is in the palm of her hand.

The dialogue moves the story along appropriately, the setting is well described, and the numerous sex scenes are imaginative and descriptive without being too vulgar. I also felt like the sex was used with a purpose, and Catalina was in full control the entire time.

The only problem I could find is with the punctuation. There were quite a few places where the punctuation was wrong or missing, but I don’t feel like it harmed the essence of the story.

Overall, I give it a 4 of 5. It’s very well done for a short story…especially one with as much sex in it as this one has. There’s no tacky sex-talk, and all the scenes feel real and natural. Well, as natural as you can be with supernatural beings. As for Catalina…well, it’s good to be the queen!

    A sensual, sexual, stimulating ride!

    Caution: This book is not for the faint of heart. Catalina Purdy, the heroine in the story, has a truly insatiable appetite, not only for the chemicals she needs to survive but for sex too (both men and women). Her quest for the second pearl lands her in many compromising situations and eventually, straight into the arms of a past lover, Dorian- a male that really gets her blood pumping.

    This story is a quick, enjoyable read. Vivid, action-packed scenes will draw you in if Catalina’s wit doesn’t. Catalina is a real, no-nonsense, Nightling with a good heart and readers will find themselves clamoring to be on her side and rooting for her all the way past the end of the book.

Catalina, Queen of the Nightlings
By J. Lee Roberts

Aboard a mythological vessel that can morph its size to accommodate as many warriors and weapons as its burly, blond Captain requires, hordes of delectable elves desperately yearn for the one thing that will bring them salvation. Their only hope lies with a sexy succubus who is more interested in having a good time than saving the day. As the enchanted ship sails off into the sunset, a scandalous seductress finds herself caught up in the middle of an epic quest.

Surrounded by the stuff of legends, Catalina reveals how fine of line reality and mythology really walk. Although she is torn between the man that loves her, the man that wants her, and an unquenchable appetite she cannot appease, Catalina must set her personal life aside, and use her seductive powers of persuasion to save the world.

A magical voyage awaits those with the courage to join the Queen of the Nightlings on one of her many escapades. Each complete tale is steamier than the last leaving the reader burning for more.

Catalina, Queen of the Nightlings
By J. Lee Roberts

Adventures of a sexy seductress

Witches, shifters, and shamans. Oh my... Catalina is at it again, and as always, no one is off limits. Strong, smart, and sexy, the Queen of the Nightlings is all but invincible. All except for one little weakness—twins.

Deep in the heart of the jungle an ancient power calls. As Catalina searches for its source, she discovers a lost Viking warrior washed ashore after a sudden squall. Although she is forced to abandon her prey, Catalina knows she will never get over the mysterious stud without at least one little taste. Trouble is—while the Cat was out to play, tall, blond and handsome has gotten away.

The journey is only beginning when she finds her prize has been captured by a crafty coven. Catalina may be a monster, but what the witches have in store for the warrior is downright evil.

Join Catalina, if you dare. Read along, as the sexy succubus seduces her way out of yet another steamy adventure.
