A succubus must balance a burgeoning romance as she fights to save a co-worker’s soul in this urban fantasy from a #1 New York Times–bestselling author.
Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses Seth Mortensen, the shy, sexy writer she’s been dating, she’ll drain his life force. Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks of a succubus are terrific, but it’s completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can’t get down with the one mortal who accepts her for who she is…
It’s not just her personal life that’s in chaos. Doug, Georgina’s co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects something far more demonic than double espressos. She could use an assist from Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, but he’s giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one-and fast, because soon, Doug’s life won't be the only one on the line…
Praise for Richelle Mead and her Succubus series
“Richelle Mead delivers sexy action and tongue-in-cheek hellish humor—if damnation is this fun, sign me up!”—Lilith Saintcrow, author of The Devil's Right Hand
“This is one of those series I'm going to keep following.”—Jim Butcher, New York Times bestselling author of the Harry Dresden series
“The mix of supernatural mystery, romance, and reluctant succubus is great fun.”—Locus
“Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal, accented with eroticism.”—Booklist
When a demon succubus falls for a mortal man, their relationship faces some sticky sweet obstacles in Mead's follow-up to her steamy 2006 paranormal debut, Succubus Blues. By day, shape-shifting beauty Letha, aka Georgina Kincaid, works at a Seattle bookstore; by night, in flagrante, she sucks the life energies of mortals. Her besotted bestselling writer boyfriend, Seth Mortenson, has agreed to a no-sex arrangement, and the "will they or won't they?" plot line grows tedious, as does Letha's character as the succubus with a heart of gold. Luckily, Mead provides cool side action when Letha's incubus pal, Bastien, enlists her help in taking down rabidly conservative radio host Dana Dailey. And bookstore co-worker Doug Sato finds his brushes with the demonic have some very pleasant side effects. It's hard to suspend disbelief, but this urban sextacular is a hoot.
Fun read in a really solid series!
I love this series so much <3 and seth :D
I'm not sure if any literary character has enchanted me quite like Georgina Kincade. Even the name sounds almost like an appropriate joke. Every time I look into her eyes I am captivated, time passes and I wonder how the hell I ever spent evenings without her. There are *only* six books yet I am screaming towards this end at a frightening pace. At least the ride will be enjoyably unique, however short. So be it.
