"A witty, sexy, & engaging paranormal read"
Succubus Blues is the first in the Georgina Kincaid
series. Georgina is a succubus, an alluring, shape-
shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. And
she's good at her job - really good. But after having
sold her soul nearly a millennia ago, she's tired. Tired
of not being able to go on a decent date without having to
worry as to whether or not she'll end up sucking the guy's
soul out in one kiss - literally. Talk about putting a
damper on a first date. But there is an upside in
Georgina's life. Her job. She's an assistant manager at
a local bookstore and has access to all the free books she
can get her hands on - what more could a girl want? Aside
from the aforementioned decent date, and well, getting her
hands on her oh-so-favorite author, Seth Mortensen.
However, those are things that will have to wait because
someone or something is taking out Seattle's immortal
residents and Georgina and her immortal friends don't know
who'll be next. And when all eyes start turning to her,
she decides to do a bit of snooping of her own.
I whole-heartedly enjoyed reading this book. It was hot,
sexy and a very entertaining read. I thoroughly enjoyed
the worlds that Richelle Mead created around Georgina --
both the mortal and immortal. Georgina still has enough
of her humanity to make the reader feel connected to her.
She wants what most people want in life -- to be able to
love and be loved in return.
Succubus Blues also has a great supporting cast: Hugh,
her friend and professional imp; Jerome, her demon boss
who looks to have a John Cusak fetish; and Carter, the
grungy angel who lives to torment Georgina, as well as a
host of other equally engaging and likable characters.
If you're looking for a hot new author and an equally
hilarious and steamy mystery, I'd definitely check out
