Series Review: Sleepy Hollow by Taryn Kincaid

Taryn Kincaid's take on the little town of Sleepy Hollow is a hoot and a half. Filled with all manner of supernatural critters, you never know if you're going to run across a down on her luck witch or a sexy succubus trying to keep herself in check.

Books in this series
1. Lightning - Kindle
2. Thunder - Kindle
3. Frost

Lightning and Thunder are part of Decadent Publishing's 1 Night Stand series. For a complete list of 1NS books (and there are a lot of them!), check out this blog.

Lightning
Synopsis (Goodreads):
In mystic Sleepy Hollow, succubus Lily Night put her prom date, Campbell Jones, into a coma after a night of wild, unbridled sex. She has steered clear of mortals ever since, afraid of damaging them or worse, not to mention the inconvenience of knocking out the power every time they have sex.

Successful architect Campbell Jones has lived with strange powers and a sexy secret since that prom night. He’s buried himself in work to forget the woman who’d dumped him at the ER then vanished from his life without a trace.

Neither Lily nor Campbell have forgotten that night or the love they’d shared. Will a 1Night Stand help them bury their past?
My Thoughts: A very fun, very sexy little read featuring a succubus who's not all that keen on using her ability to seduce and arouse mortals after injuring her first love in an unbridled display of youthful sexual exuberance. Lily's locked down so tight it's amazing she hasn't shattered. Campbell, sadly, is in much the same predicament. Although it's been 10 years since their explosive coming together (and I can only assume they did both come together given what happened to poor Campbell), they're both holding a torch for the other. Enter Madame Eve and 1 Night Stand to get these two love birds back on the road to perpetual happiness. Or at least a long night of boning.

Despite the length of the story, we're given some really interesting characters who have plenty of back story and who generate the type of heat that causes the sky to crackle. The secondary characters -- Lily's sisters and Campbell's brother -- are fun (and often naughty). I'm sure they'll all get their chance at a 1 Night Stand down the road. At least I can only hope they all do.


Thunder
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Lonely young witch, Veronica Hardwicke, has struggled to get on with her life after the death of the elderly husband who’d left her a fortune and a sprawling estate in mystical Sleepy Hollow. When frightening things go bump in the night on a stormy Fourth of July, who better to call than the sexy developer and contractor, Sean Jones, who's been renovating her mansion for months?

Sean may grace the tabloid pages with a different supermodel on his arm every night, but it's Veronica who drives him nuts. Ignoring his instinct to stay away, he answers her summons.

Will the thundering passion of their 1Night Stand tear down the barriers between them?
My Thoughts: For this outing, we followed Campbell's hunky brother Sean as he finds his match in Veronica. One thing I adore about these interconnected stories is that we get to see characters from the previous books pop in. Campbell's blissfully happy with his succubus love and he's angling to get Sean in that same state. Enter Madame Eve and 1 Night Stand.

These books are flat out fun. They take the idea of one night of no holds barred sex and manages to find a way to make the couple work. Sean is used to the supernatural because of Campbell's abilities but he doesn't know everything that's out there. Veronica turns out to be a surprise from top to bottom. The sex? Smokin'. Not literally. But it does leave them very, very happy.

What more can you ask for?
