Dark romance, jealousy, and a dangerous fixation – The Devilin Fey
By Jess C Scott
As a writer, I love the world of paranormal, because of the new worlds, concepts, values, and perspectives to explore. I like to challenge myself to come up with something fresh/original too.
The hot love/sex scenes that I write can range from sensuous to explicit. I will never write a love/sex scene where it’s “just about the sex (the physical act).” I like including psychological and emotional elements in my work—I feel this lends a certain amount of depth and authenticity to both the storyline and the characters.
With The Devilin Fey, I’d been wanting to write a story with an incubus for quite some time (since 2006 / The Devilin Fey was written about two years later). Dreams are another whole new realm to meander about in (dreams being of significance, since an incubus/succubus descends upon mortals ‘as they sleep’). I enjoy writing contemporary fiction, so I made sure there was a balance between the urban setting where the story takes place, and the fantasy elements which drive the plot.
To me, great characters and a great storyline are the essential elements of a great story. That’s pretty much all there is to it.
There, on the rocks, was a figure—my real stranger. I had no proof, no validation. The blood in my veins knew he was the one.
He had spiked short hair on the top, a soft kind of faux hawk. Some sleek, longer strands reached the base of his neck.
He was also shirtless, but the thing that caught my attention, that made me do a double-take, was what appeared to be a pair of wings on this pale figure’s back. A pair of ashen-grey, draconic wings. They came up slightly over his shoulders, and the tips were folded across the small of his back.
It was a beautiful night. The waves were gently washing in upon the shore. And there this pristine figure calmly sat.
