I ask because I had to twist our human concept of love and fidelity to fit in succubus’ world. If a succubus has to feed from having sex, how can she have a relationship? I considered the idea of having her feed from only one lover but I imagine that eventually she’d drain him dry. It couldn’t be healthy for either of them.
An open relationship seemed like the best option but what kind of alpha male would share his female?
An incubus, of course. They’d understand each other’s sexual feeding needs yet be able to fulfill each other’s emotional aspects that their lifestyles lack. They wouldn’t see sex to feed as cheating, but it best be ONLY for feeding, otherwise all bets are off.
I really enjoyed creating this world and all its complex love rules between two people who just physically loyal.
When her demon lover doesn't arrive for their arranged rendezvous, Pia is forced to ask her vampire lover to step in before her energy becomes dangerously low. In return he demands a favor and Pia finds herself in the hotel suite of the mysterious Valerio
As an incubus used to bedding a variety of succubi, Val doesn't understand Pia's yearning for love. He needs a succubus wife to provide him with a steady source of energy. But he wants Pia for the passion and renewed interest in life she makes him feel. Can Pia convince Val that sex isn't just for survival and love is for more than the weak?
Beeping my car unlocked, I went to the driver’s side.
“I don’t see why Hoel can’t drive us in my car.” Val folded himself into my VW Bug.
“Because Cooper likes his privacy and my taking you will be bad enough. Why do you need to meet my suitors?” I jammed my key in the ignition and started the vehicle, then kicked it into drive.
“Making sure you feed properly will fall on my shoulders. I want to meet the…flavors you prefer.”
He sat with his back to the door, his knee bent on the seat so he could face me. “Do you love him?”
I snorted, then glanced at him. His eyebrows were furrowed as he frowned at me. “You’re serious? Of course not.”
“But you care about him.”
“I’ve seen how you react to chocolate. Is he chocolate?”
More like macaroni and cheese but from Val’s expression I didn’t think that was the answer he wanted. “What are you expecting? If you want me to promise they mean nothing to me then I’m the wrong succubus to court. I don’t like sex with strangers. It hurts me on all sorts of levels.”
“So you do love him.”
“No!” I shook my head since he didn’t seem to understand the first time I answered this question. “I choose suitors who I won’t fall in love with, but I like them. As friends.” I rubbed my forehead. “This is complicated.” Of all the days that Val decided to tag along, I was going to see the suitor he’d disapprove of the most. Cooper was territorial and caring.
“It’s only as complicated as you make it.” He still frowned at me and seemed unhappier.
I wanted Val to see beyond our culture’s emotional boundaries. If I could open him to the possibilities of love, we might both get what we desired from this courtship. First, he had to trust me and I needed to earn that trust. “I was just going over to tell Cooper we had a change in schedule.” I poked him in the stomach. “Some incubus is mixing me all up.”
His scowl grew deeper.
