Becoming a Temptress

Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level)
Awesome Beauty (Su): Any creature within 30’ who looks at the temptress is Shaken (WillNeg, DC is 10+Cha modifier+level) for 1 minute. Continued looking results in additional saves, the failure of which resets the duration. The temptress can suppress or resume this ability as a Free Action. This is a [mind][fear] effect.
Unearthly Grace (Su): A temptress adds her Charisma modifier as a bonus on all her saving throws, and as a deflection bonus to her Armor Class.
Tempting Kisses (Su): A temptress applies various effects to another it lures into some act of passion, or by simply planting a kiss on the victim. If the target is not willing to be kissed, the temptress must start a grapple, which provokes an attack of opportunity. The temptress' kiss or embrace has the following effects (choose one at the time of the kiss):
Tempting Kiss 1: you may apply the effects of a Charm Person spell with your Charming Kiss. The save DC is (11+Cha+level) Will.
Tempting Kiss 2: you may apply the effects of a Suggestion spell with your Suggestive Kiss. The save DC is (13+Cha+level) Will.
Tempting Kiss 3: you may apply the effects of a succubus Energy Drain with your Draining Kiss. The victim must save or gain one negative level. The kiss also has the effect of a suggestion spell, asking the victim to accept another kiss from the temptress. The save DC is (15+Cha+level) Will to negate the effects of suggestion. It is also a (15+Cha+level) Fortitude save to remove the negative levels.
Tempting Kiss 4: your kiss becomes deadly. You may choose to either paralyze your victim for 1/minute per level, or slay them instantly. For either it is a (17+Cha+level) Fortitude save. You may only use this ability 3/day.
Secret Alignment (Su): Being an expert at hiding your true intentions, you gain the effects of a constant Undetectable Alignment spell of a caster level equal to your level.
Silver Tongue (Su): Your ability to seduce anyone gives you the power to communicate your feelings, however false. You get the benefits of a constant Tongues spell of a caster level equal to your level. In addition, you get a +4 competence bonus to saves vs attempts at detecting lies by magical means.
Hidden Mind (Su): Your mind and intent truly hidden, you gain the effects of a constant Mind Blank spell of a caster level equal to your level.
Blinding Beauty (Su): This ability affects all creatures within 30 feet of a temptress. Those who look directly at a temptress must succeed on a DC 10+cha+level Fortitude save or be blinded permanently as though by the blindness spell. A temptress can suppress or resume this ability as a free action.
