#BookReview – ‘Tamed by the Incubus’ by Bliss Devlin


Nicole just wants a normal, happy life. But once you've been held captive by an incubus and turned into a werewolf against your will, “normal” takes on a new meaning.
Then Nicole meets Gabriel, the founder of a high-tech company. Rich, sexy, and attracted to her, he's everything she's ever dreamed of...and her inner wolf wants him for a mate. Now.
But Nicole and her hairy once-a-month problem may both change their minds when they discover that Gabriel is also an incubus, a creature Nicole understandably loathes and fears. And that's not the worst of it.
What one incubus has already claimed, another courts at his own peril.
Her former captor isn't going to give up his claim, Gabriel isn't going to give up on true love, and Nicole isn't going to give up being snarky, because that may be the only way she can stay sane.
It's a game of chicken with two Children of Lilith and a werewolf. True love may be the prize, but misery could be the cost...if any of them survive.


In book six of the Children of Lilith series, Nicole Jaeger is in hiding from a mad man. Six years earlier, a stranger kidnapped her, turned her into a werewolf, and kept her prisoner for an entire year. She finally escaped and has been on the run ever sense. She knows all about computers and finds work at a security company. Though she never stays in one place too long, she’s drawn to one of her bosses and doesn’t want to leave.
Gabriel Amestra is an incubus, a Child of Lilith, but he’s more of a gentle lover than his brother, Michael, and his cousin, Andras, whom we’ve met in the previous books. When Nicole first starts working at the company he co-owns with Michael and his other brother, Rafael, he knows she’s a shape-shifter by the color of her aura. Their romance blooms slowly because of her past trauma, but with Gabriel’s and Mark’s help (Mark is a powerful alpha werewolf and a friend to the Amestras), she works through her emotional problems.
I read this book back-to-back with the previous two. In doing so, I noticed at least one scene in this book is almost identical to a scene in book 5, Submitting to the Incubus, as though it was copied and pasted but with the names and a few details changed. I normally wouldn’t have noticed that if I hadn’t read the books so close together.
There aren’t any naughty kinks in this story as there were in books 4 and 5 (the only other ones I’ve read). The sex is still hot and mouthwatering, but it’s more straightforward like a regular erotic romance novel.
This book could use an edit to add in missing words and to fix some minor content errors.
Anyway, I enjoyed this story a lot and would like to read books 1, 2, and 3 (which are historicals) as well. Books 4, 5, and 6 are standalones, however, and readers don’t need to read the first three to understand them.
4 Stars
