Catalina, Queen of the Nightlings by J. Lee Roberts

Cleopatra's Pearls
Catalina, Queen of the Nightlings Volume 1
by J. Lee Roberts
Genre: Paranormal Romance
I’m not your average monster. In the past, I have toppled, liberated, and
even ruled kingdoms. Believe me, I’m over that lifestyle. My motto
is, ‘Learn from the past; love in the present’.
By day, I’m Catalina Purdy, proprietor of Purdy Antiques. By night,
under cover of darkness, I expose my true nature.
I enjoy; long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners, easy men, and
feasting off the chemicals they produce when sexually aroused.
I also love my job. I am eternally thirsty for the chance to hunt down
rare, exotic pieces. However, I’m not hard to please, I’ll take
any piece I can get, and I always get what I want.”

Reader Advisory: Be forewarned, the story within, contains X-rated tales of
a Nightlings naughty escapades.

"Mmm", I breathe in one of my favorite perfumes, sex... My fangs extract, and I sink them into his sweet, soft flesh, and drink in his intoxicating elixir.
            The endorphins I deliver are a gift. To him the process is painless... He stands dazed and utterly confused against the wall. “Sorry you won’t be able to remember this,” I apologize, walking away. Like I said, fast food...
            Now, I know exactly what you’re thinking, “Not another vampire.” Yes, all the signs are there, but I adamantly refute the title. I am a Nightling. Not any insignificant Nightling though. I am Catalina, Queen of the Nightlings.
             I am an ancient creature...I have fangs that retract, which are capable of extracting the hormone oxytocin from the human bloodstream. My razor-sharp teeth work two ways. First, they extract the hormones I need to survive, and second, they pump back in the blood, you will most definitely need. However, I have complete control as to whether I give back the fundamental fluid. I usually do. Usually.
             Oxytocin is the hormone that is secreted when the body feels pleasure, arousal, or passion. Enter the succubus. The hormone keeps me strong, fed, and eternally beautiful. My body forever craves the chemicals released during sexual arousal. Which is why I am always horny. I also release endorphins, which act as painkillers when I feed. Endorphins produce a soothing, peaceful sensation to my victims. They also produce a drug like dependency. That is precisely why, I always secrete an inhibitor. The inhibitor is so that my food, doesn’t follow me home, with flowers. It doesn't always work, but who's complaining?
            I own a quaint antique shop in San Francisco, I am always on the prowl for rare, unattainable pieces. One of the many benefits of being an immortal, is that it allows me to buy new objects, in hopes that they eventually will turn into priceless antiques in the future.
            A long time ago I was separated from a precious gift, given by my mentor. I was on the verge of reclaiming them from none other than Cleopatra Queen of the Nile. I had them within my grasp when her ego got the best of her, and I once again let them slip away. Word has spread that my precious pearls have resurfaced, and this time I don't care who I have to screw to get them back. I only hope it is someone hot.

"Once my familiar friend darkness, had cloaked me in its embrace, I headed straight for the 'great power'. As I grew nearer, I could sense two, distinctly, separate, energy sources.
            "The first, was a spell. A very powerful one. So powerful in fact, that the nearby villagers had long been, scared straight, of ever penetrating its borders. The enchantment, in all truth, was a rather simple one. Any person, who ventured near, would get the sudden impulse, to change directions. I'm sure, that as the years passed by, the villagers had grown wise to the phenomenon. Yet, knowing something strange is happening, and actually comprehending why, it is happening, are two very different things. The villagers had been right, in just steering clear of the area completely."

            "The second source, was a primordial power, pulsating directly from the earth. This energy supply, was much more powerful. No sorcerer, had conjured the force surging from beyond the spell. This, was earth magic." 
The Last Seeing Stone

warriors and weapons as its burly, blond Captain requires, hordes of
delectable elves desperately yearn for the one thing that will bring
them salvation. Their only hope lies with a sexy succubus who is more
interested in having a good time than saving the day. As the
enchanted ship sails off into the sunset, a scandalous seductress
finds herself caught up in the middle of an epic quest.
Surrounded by the stuff of legends, Catalina reveals how fine of line reality
and mythology really walk. Although she is torn between the man that
loves her, the man that wants her, and an unquenchable appetite she
cannot appease, Catalina must set her personal life aside, and use
her seductive powers of persuasion to save the world.
A magical voyage awaits those with the courage to join the Queen of the
Nightlings on one of her many escapades. Each complete tale is
steamier than the last leaving the reader burning for more.

 I stand motionless as these Earth shattering conclusions roll through my mind. It's only the delectable scent of male hormones, that ultimately shatter my stillness.
            "Excuse me ma'am, I'm looking for Ms. Purdy. My name is James. I'm with Sunrise Builders, she should be expecting me."
            Shit, I totally forgot I told Tonya to hire a carpenter to fix the damage Dorian  caused in my dominatrix den. Apparently I forgot to tell her I needed a new contractor. Well, it's too late now, I'll just have to control myself, it shouldn't be too hard. Oh, but he is.

            "I'm Ms. Purdy. James is it?" I hold my hand out for him to shake. I am a professional after all. I can handle this. His strong, callused hand engulfs mine. His big, brown, smoldering eyes look directly into mine, and he flashes a dazzling smile. He speaks to me in a deep, sensual voice, that tickles me and all the right spots. 

The Nativity
Catalina, Queen of Nightlings Volume 4
Adventures of a Sexy Seductress
On a dark and stormy autumn night back in 1969, thieves broke into a
Sicilian oratory and stole Caravaggio’s masterpiece, the Nativity.
To this day, authorities are still on the hunt. With a
20-million-dollar reward for its retrieval, claims to its location
have flooded the FBI database. Some say the theft was commissioned by
the Mafia, others report that greedy amateurs seeing a television
program about the Italian treasure decided to act. Where the police
have failed, one woman will succeed.
Once again Catalina is on the prowl. And neither mobsters nor monsters can
stop her from seducing her way to the truth.
Join the Queen of the Nightlings on yet another steamy adventure and see
whether or not you can decipher fact from fantasy.

Earthlings, have labeled me a succubus, a whore of Beelzebub. Alas, I must confess, I do not have a tail nor do I possess horns. And as far as being a spawn from hell, well, I’m sure my mother has a few stories of my teenage years she would like to share. The closest Hollywood ideology you could compare me with, is the legend of the Vampire. An undead, bloodsucking immortal. That clich├ęd definition could not be further from the truth of what I really am. I am a living, breathing, heart pumping Succubus. However, there probably are Vampires living in your community. Though we both come from similar worlds, our dining habits are rather different. The actual expressions, Succubus and Vampire, relates to the quadrant of the solar system from which we derive. Not quite so romantic now, are we?

I admit our dining habits appear to be the same, from the outside looking in, that is. We both have retractable fangs that have the ability to draw blood from our food source, and yes, we both have super-human strength and senses. Even with all our similarities, we differ in the most important way. Our food. Myself and fellow Succubae must ingest large doses of the human hormone oxytocin in order to survive. It just so happens that this particular chemical is created when the body is aroused or feels passion. I have the fortunate ability to extract this particular hormone from the blood stream, and then I can pump the vital fluid, minus my meal, back into my source. Waste not.

Gold Rush
Catalina, Queen of the Nightlings Volume 5
Adventures of a Sexy Seductress
Torn between a simple life in San Francisco and her calling as a Queen,
Catalina must choose her fate. There’s just one thing standing in
her way — Werewolves. Will her lust for love and treasure, derail
her future or will she fulfil her every desire?
Join Catalina, on another erotic adventure, if you dare.

Reader Advisory: Be forewarned, the story within contains X-rated tales of a
Nightling’s naughty escapades.

I swallow my pride and answer his stupid question with a demure smile while batting my thick, black eyelashes. I turn away from him and stroll toward the back of the alley. I don’t need witnesses ruining my dinner. Before I can even turn to signal for him to follow, he grabs me from behind. One of his callused hands grips my throat. He crams the other, down the front of my corset and viciously claws at my breast. I hear a seam rip on the expensive garment, and my blood boils. His filthy, searching hand, forces its way down my skirt causing more trauma to my outfit and finding an unobstructed path to my crotch.
“You were waiting for me,” he hisses in my ear. The smell of his rank breath nearly gags me. I really do need to stop doing this, I think. I hear his zipper go down and I know I’ve let this go too far. My plan was to get him hard, drink his blood, and leave him in a dazed stupor. One, two, three. He could have stumbled home in a blissful haze. However, assholes like this, who can’t even be happy accepting what is about to be given freely, who feel they must control and take whatever they want, really, I mean really piss me off. Normally, I would destroy this bastard on principle, but the fact that he ruined two of my fav garments in one night, well this calls for something a bit more sinister. I’m just about to put the smack down on this punk when a familiar scent, stops me cold.
“Let go of the woman and leave.” His rich, booming voice echoes off the brick walls, and I drip.
“Get lost pretty boy, we’re busy,” the biker spits and refocuses his energy on groping my breast.

“To be courteous, I will give you three seconds to vacate the premises,” my savior offers.

This is J.Lee Roberts writing from sunny/rainy Hawaii. I'm so glad to here you like the covers. I think it was one of the hardest things to do as far as the whole publishing processes. You want them to be bold and eye catching yet interesting and seductive all at once. When I first described my vision to the amazing team at Luminosity Publishing, they polity explained that it was way to much to cram onto one small book cover.So I did what any terrible artist would do and I gave them lots of artistic freedom. They haven't let me down yet.;-D Thank you all for your kinds words. I hope you all have an amazing New Year
All my love J. Lee Roberts
