Product Description

"Wow. This book is hot, hotter, and hottest!"--Paranormal Romance Guild, 5 Star Review


Daegal is everything a female could want in an incubus. A poet's mellow voice. A pirate's brooding gaze. Strong, sensitive hands trained to give ultimate pleasure. But even though he's the sexiest incubus in history, Daegal has a tragic secret he would risk his life to keep...

Kamari is a young succubus recently graduated from an elite thousand-year sex training school. When she is assigned to be Daegal's partner, his sexual prowess gives her pleasure beyond any she's ever known (and that is saying a lot for a succubus). But she also discovers something troubling about her partner--he can't experience his own release. In spite of Daegal's refusal to discuss it, Kamari vows to uncover the reason why.

The two begin their first dream-work assignment in the world of humans. Miss Anne Morely is a young English woman of good family with a devastating secret and a crush on the rector in her parish. He barely knows she exists. Her unrequited passion is causing problems in Kamari and Daegal's world, and the two dream workers are sent to earth to solve the issue.

Dream work is hazardous duty. The longer they stay, the more likely they are to be caught and tortured by the Maron--evil angels who are mortal enemies of incubi and succubi.

It ought to be a two-night mission, but Daegal's emotional angst is jeopardizing the task. As the Maron close in on them and threaten their human assignments, Kamari has more at stake than just Daegal's "problem." With her first assignment on the brink of failure, she must find a way to help Daegal face the nightmares that stalk him, despite the lure of her own forbidden desires.

Can Kamari pull her new partner out of his dark past? Or will its seductive hold be his destruction?

About the ORDER OF LILITH series:

In a world of night, immortal beings create erotic dreams for humans and battle the evil that infects their blood. Two are destined to risk their lives for a chance at love and to be free from the dark future awaiting them. Kamari has a goddess' blessing, and her partner Daegal has a reputation as dark as it is powerful. Together, as they create sexual pleasure for their human assignments, they begin an impossible search for a cure to the poison in their blood. But can they succeed before they themselves succumb to the demonic madness waiting to destroy them?

5.0 out of 5 stars What a delightful new paranormal story! 12 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first story in what should be a series and for those of you who enjoy paranormal romance, By Her Own Hand (Order of Lilith) by Freya Duquesne is a must and you'll find a delightful treat. Its classification also fits within the erotic genre but in it's most tasteful sense. This is a story of an Incubus - Daegal, & a Succubus, a graduate from college & blessed by Nyx - Kamari, not the usual demonic characters from mythology but a pair whose duty it is to facilitate a romance between two potential lovers that without the intervention of Kamari & Daegal would not be realized. The author introduces terms like the 'lud' without definitive definitions but an understanding becomes apparent as the story progresses, and which are dangerous even death sentences to our intrepid mythological characters. The writing is beautifully poetic, with the Georgian characters of Gilbert Thorpe - Vicar and Anne a spinster of the parish with a secret to conceal and thwarted from their idealic romance by the constraints of that era. The writing keeps accurately to the social niceties of the times. The storyline, characters, content and context of this story develop well & are excellent. The standards of literacy are very good. The detailed description of the budding sexuality of the main characters is tasteful yet erotic in a loving, caring sense. I would highly recommend it to any discerning reader who enjoys these genres and is an adult over 18. I look forward to Freya Duquesne's next book in the series with impatience. This is worthy of a full 5 stars. I loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Succulent and Seductive! 28 Sep 2011
By Marzio Ombra - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Freya Duquesne has delivered a delightful, delicious romance. I indulged in this book with no idea of what tale I was about to read, other than it was an erotic romance. A happy choice! Thus, I am loathe to provide any details about the story or the characters save in the most oblique manner.

Succulent and seductive, the tale relates the challenges and desires of two sets of lovers. Artfully entwined, I found myself immersed in the dual narratives. Mesmerized by the heroine, intrigued by her mysterious partner and their mission, I devoured each chapter.

Ms. Duquesne has a wonderful cadence to her storytelling, a pace that fed me just enough to satisfy, while tantalizing my need for more. This book is as much a joy to read for her words as for the story they convey. I sincerely recommend this story with all confidence. "By Her Own Hand" is highly enjoyable journey and I eagerly anticipate this author's next work. Brava, Freya Duquesne, BRAVA!

5.0 out of 5 stars In only all our dreams were so....delicious! 20 Aug 2011
By Narcisse Navarre - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Written from the point of view of Kamari, a true voluptuary and succubus, this sizzling tale of dreams, demons and love is sultry and sexy. The prose is elegant, rich and textured; brimming with the kinds of visuals I long for in erotica. The story is sensual, following a brief foray into the lives of two Victorian "mortals" and two "Lilim" charged with the difficult task of stitching the void of unrequited love. The story weaves between dreams and reality, ever building into an exquisite tapestry of emotion that will leave you breathless. I don't want to give too much of it away, as it should be experienced, but Ms. Duquesne does an amazing job of exploring how fear, insecurity, and repression can be conquered by love. Beautifully written, this page turner is impossible to put down. Highly recommended!
4.0 out of 5 stars Lush and evocative 29 Dec 2011
By Sasha White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
FREYA DUQUESNE 's debut story is the start of something beautiful. The writing is flawless, the story imaginative, and the descriptions lush and evocative. Admittedly, it took me two tries to start this story. The first time I opened it I couldn't get past the Prologue, and I left it for a while. When I went back I skipped the prologue completely and started at Chapter 1, and was immediately hooked. Great world building, and well developed characters make this original storyline shine. When I read the last page I went back and read the Prologue, and this time it made me hungry for the next Order of Lilith story.

By Her Own Hand is not your typical explicit erotica, but it is definitely an sexy and enjoyable read.
