I have so many things to be thankful for. My hubby and I have just purchased a new house, summer is almost here and I have a new Sci-Fi release. Claimed By The Succubus is available on Amazon.
In Claimed By The Succubus, you meet Izzie: the shy, wild-haired succubus who is trying to reach Earth to save her best friends from… well, she doesn’t know what she’s saving them from, she only knows that they need her help.
To reach them she places her trust in a familiar face, Jacob Bollinger. Only, he seems different now. Why? Because he’s not Jacob at all. He’s really Shun’Uhl, a shape shifting soldier sent to return Izzie to her long-lost father.
Her goal is to meet up with her friends on Earth. His goal is to return her to the king, untouched. Which one will achieve their goal? I can’t tell you. You have to read Claimed By The Succubus and find out for yourself.
Today, my hero from Claimed By The Succubus, Shun’Uhl, is going to give you a few tips on how NOT to fall in love. This should be interesting.
Tips On How Not To Fall In Love - From Shun’Uhl
Love is not for warriors. It’s too distracting. I’ve seen too many good soldiers fall victim to this disease. The afflicted don’t even realized their infected. I’ve made up my mind that I will protect myself from love at all costs. Being around Princess Izeria has almost made me change my thoughts on love. However, I’m strong. And so far, I’ve been able to keep my distance from her, despite the fact that we are the only two beings on my ship. If you’re a warrior that has been tasked with protecting a female you can’t seem to stop thinking about, here are few tips to help you stay sane and avoid falling victim to love.
Do not talk to the person you’re trying to avoid falling in love with.
Do not engage in small talk or deep discussions. Talking leads to you watching her lips move, which leads to you wanting to kiss her. Don’t talk to her. Don’t kiss her.
Do not spend time alone with her.
Spending time alone with her leads to her becoming more comfortable around you. That leads to her wanting to lean on you or be near you. Which leads to you craving her nearness at all times. Do not spend time alone with her.
Do not stare directly into her eyes.
This will be your downfall. When she casts shy glances in your direction, look away. Don’t stare at her. You’ll crave more of those glances if you hold her gaze.
Do not touch her.
This is the most important rule. Do not put your hands or any part of your body on her. This rule is a hard one to follow. You may tell yourself, ‘I will touch her one time then never again’. You lie. One touch will never be enough. It will lead to you craving the feel of her skin under your fingertips forever. Do not touch her.
If you follow these tips, you have a fifty percent chance of coming out of your situation without a mate. As for me, I am trying my hardest to make it through my mission unscathed. I feel my resolve weakening daily. If I fall victim to love, please continue to spread these tips so that not all our brethren become infected. I must go now. Izeria has decided she wants to play cards to pass the time. If I deny her request, she will get into one of her moods and start ignoring me. I do not like it when she ignores me. Be strong brethren. Remain vigilant.
Claimed By The Succubus Blurb
She is Izeria’Ahzul, the long-lost daughter of my king. She was raised away from our people and knows nothing of her heritage. Our kind are a myth to her. She doesn’t believe we exist and there’s no way she’ll believe she’s one of us.
I am Shun’Uhl, the soldier ordered to return her to my king’s side so she can marry a royal and produce an heir to save our people. To get her to trust me, I shed my beastly form and take on the form of someone she knows. I choose unwisely. The form I’ve selected is a male she despises.
The more time I spend with her, the more she comes to like me. And though I’ve tried to resist, I find myself falling for her also. Her feelings for me will change once she learns of my deception and sees how I really look. Part of me wants to complete my mission and return her to her father. Another part of me wants to remain in this form forever and spend my life with Izeria.
I have a choice to make: be honest with the female I love and risk losing her or lie to her for the rest of our lives. Unfortunately, the choice is made for me when we come under attack and I have to release my beast to protect her.
Now it is she who has to make a choice: Me and my beast or a kingdom?
My beast is trying to take over.
Even now, as I escort Izeria to the dining hall, he’s pushing against the barrier that separates drahken from dragon. He’s clawing at the barricade that keeps him inside. Moments ago, he came close to breaking free.
Not only did I hear his growl, so did Izeria. She assumed it was my stomach growling in hunger. Luckily, she’s too naïve to think the worst of me. She senses something is wrong, yet, she doesn’t want to believe me capable of deceiving her, of hurting her.
I should feel guilty for what I’m doing. I don’t. I can’t. Too much is riding on me getting her to my territory. My beast snorts his displeasure, unhappy with our current mission. It’s funny how he can kill viciously, yet he frowns upon lying to our half-breed princess.
I can feel him pacing the recesses of my mind. In this form, he cannot speak to me. Right now, that’s a good thing. I don’t want to hear his thoughts on what is happening. He knew what we’d have to do when we found her.
He knew we’d have to lie or maybe even kidnap her to achieve our goal. His feelings for her can’t change that. Nothing can change what has to be done. The lives of our people are more important than Izeria’s opinion of us.
When we arrive in the dining hall, I step to the side so she and her rodent can enter the room before me. I’m glad I did. The look on her face as she walks into the dining hall is priceless. It’s almost like she’s never been on a spacecraft before.
“This is the biggest dining hall I’ve ever been in. Not only on a ship, but on land also.”
She turns to me and smiles. For a moment, I forget how to breathe. I sense my beast’s pleasure, or is that my own? The line between what I want and what he wants is starting to blur.

Hi, my name is Siren Allen. I’m a writer and lover of all things supernatural and romantic. I reside in southern Mississippi where I write steamy romances that are guaranteed to make you blush. When I’m not listening to the characters in my head and jotting down their adventures, I am busy working as a Clinical Laboratory Technician.
I love to travel, preferably with my husband, so he can do all of the driving. I enjoy time with my family, who are just as silly as I am. My hobbies are reading, writing and shopping, though I hate trying on clothing. If I wasn’t a writer or a Laboratory Professional, I would probably be a Secret Agent.
But that’s the beauty of being a writer. You can create your own world and be whoever you want to be. In my imaginary world, I am Queen and my siblings are my minions.
