“A Different Approach” by Jason Christopher Hosler
Josef is a virtuous man, a sincere and pious soul who puts great stock in the words of the Tome and the teachings of the Prelate. He once thought his willpower should be enough to fend off the nighttime visitations of a demonic seductress—but he was wrong.
A Prelate’s blessing, his personal faith, his virtue: Josef girds himself with all possible forces for good, grasping to anything that might balance out his weakening resolve. But will it be enough when night falls, and the succubus returns? They are creatures of temptation and deception, and little does Josef know just how greatly deceived he may be.

“Recovery” by Lawrence Scott
Like others of her kind who have fallen from grace, Claire comes from a divine origin. But that was long and long ago, and over the eons the succubus has gone from loving humans to using and exploiting them. Intent on destroying lives and delivering up souls, addicted to sex and sensation, she does her work as she has done it for time out of mind.

Or that’s what she’s supposed to be doing. Yet one lover she is setting up for destruction has a strange hold on her, and it’s getting harder and harder to do what a succubus is supposed to do. Memories, regrets, forgotten aspirations, long-buried feelings stirring—it’s a lot to handle, and when the dam breaks, nothing will be the same in Claire’s world ever again.

Fantasy novelist Diana Pharaoh Francis has a succubus resolved to fix her problems in a desperate manner:
 
“Hunger Pains” by Diana Pharaoh Francis
Olivia has spent a long time denying her true nature and passing as human. When she falls for her boss, Noah, she wants to earn his love, not steal it—but as a succubus, she can’t help herself. It’s time for desperate measures to be with the man she loves.

She’s paid a witch to cure her, only now she’s running out of time. Noah has found someone else, and if Olivia doesn’t act soon, she’ll lose him forever. Tonight’s the night, if nothing gets in the way. But someone from her past has other ideas…

A Succubus on TV
Did you know there's a tv show about a succubus? Lost Girl on the Syfy channel follows the life of a succubus named Bo, played by Anna Silk, as she learns to control her abilities, helps those in need, and discovers the truth about her origins. Check it out!

"In the Manner of His Choosing" is one of the most intense stories in Demon Lovers: Succubi. The story is by two-time Nebula nominee Jennifer Pelland. Here's the blurb for her story: 

Each night, she follows the stink of guilt with more skill than any bloodhound, tracing the trail straight to the beds of the men who deserve her most. She brings death from the place where other women bring life, and she does it without reservations.

She is a succubus. She is vengeance in the form of a woman.

And sometimes on that trail, she does not always find what she expects at the end.

From Demon Lovers: Succubi, here's the blurb for "Mother Vinegar" by +DeAnna Knippling, one of the most unusual science fictional treatments of succubi that I've ever read:

Ship’s AI and succubus Bright Pickle loves her life of running a space ship and titillating her human pilot, Chester. Accompanying her miner on his journeys through the outer solar system, she’s managed to keep herself as far away from her mother AI’s machinations of independence and conquest as possible. But Mother can’t leave well enough alone. When she sets the wheels of destruction turning, only Bright Pickle can save Chester and thwart Mother Vinegar’s plans.

But Pickles is her mother’s daughter, after all…
