Book Tour: Succubus Lost Guest Post by Tiffany Allee


The First Meeting
One of the most interesting moments in a book—romance books, specifically—is when the main characters meet. This meeting may be contentious or there may be immediate attraction. Many times, there is only an inkling of a hint given that the characters may find something special in each other later in the book.

When the main characters of Succubus Lost meet, there are no fireworks. In fact, the female main character, Marisol, has just discovered that her sister is missing. As a police detective, she's concentrating on finding her sister. When she is introduced to Agent Valerio Costa, sparks don't exactly fly. But there are hints of what is to come.


Black hair topped his head and waved around his face, softening his otherwise sharp features, and I had the sudden desire to brush a lock of hair away from his face with my fingertips. Dark brown eyes met mine—not angry, but hard and closed-off.

Costa reached out and I met his hand with my own. He shook it, his fingers firm and almost cold against mine. I frowned and examined him more closely.

Vampire?” The question was rude, but propriety was the least of my worries. I needed to know who I was dealing with. He didn’t have the slight paleness that vampires were known for, but then he may have fed recently. No fear emanated from him, but that didn’t disqualify the vampire angle altogether, since some vampires exuded more fear than others.

A grimace touched Costa’s features, gone so quickly I wasn’t even certain I saw it. “Salamander.”

Ah.” Salamanders were essentially a type of elemental. They could control fire and were resistant to its effects. I didn’t know any personally, but they weren’t the rarest of otherworlders, and most were only slightly more powerful than a match.


It's pretty clear that while she finds certain details about Costa interesting, she's not exactly taken with him right off the bat. She's far too worried about how he's going to help her find her missing sister.

What kind of meetings do you most enjoy between main characters? Do you like immediate attraction or conflict?

From the Files of the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency - Book One

When she’s sent to a crime scene and finds her second dead woman in as many weeks, half-banshee detective Kiera “Mac” McLoughlin is convinced a serial killer is on the loose. Incubi are extinct, her boss insists. But what else can kill a woman in the throes of pleasure? When her partner is murdered after using witchcraft to locate the killer and Mac is thrown off the case, her frustration turns to desperation.

Certain the killer is an incubus, Mac works behind her department’s back to chase down slim, sometimes perilous leads. While the killer eludes her, she does discover handsome Aidan Byrne, an investigative counterpart from the enigmatic Otherworlder Enforcement Agency. Mac typically runs her investigations fast and hard, but with Aidan at her side, she’s running this one “hot” as well. But Aidan knows more than he’s letting on—something that could shatter their blazing romance and add Mac to the killer’s growing body count…

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Blurb:

Someone is kidnapping and incinerating otherworlders beyond recognition, and Detective Marisol Whitman, a succubus, races to find the murderer before he claims another victim. But her pursuit is derailed when her responsible younger sister vanishes. Marisol suspects foul play and enlists support from an unlikely source: an agent from the Otherworlder Enforcement Agency, Valerio Costa.
When the trail pointing to everyone from vampires to witches dries up, Agent Costa admits to knowing more than he’s shared. Marisol’s sister’s kidnapper harnesses more magic than she can imagine—and they’re running out of time. To find her sister before her powers are drained and twisted beyond recognition, Marisol must connect the dots between cases and put her trust in Costa, a salamander who may burn her before she can solve either case.
