"Dark but delicious"

Succubus Georgina Kincaid is immortal, can shape-shift into any human form and can seduce any man she wants. However being a Succubus isn't always as cool as it looks. For instance right now Georgina is helping to plan her ex-boyfriend's wedding and it is hell. She isn't sure what is worse! Seth marrying someone else or that she has to try on bridesmaid dresses?

However Georgina's life has enough distractions to keep her mind off the wedding and one of them is Roman. He is her new roommate and the sexual tension between them is high. Then there is another succubus in town to keep an eye on. Simone is up to something and Georgina wants to know what. Then there is the danger surrounding Georgina. A mysterious force keeps visiting her when she is asleep. She is resisting but at some point she will be too weak and there is no knowing where the force will take her and if she will be able to get back again.

Succubus Shadows is the fifth book in the series and I really have to wonder how the author manages to outdo herself each time. Things get better and better with each book and so far I can't say that there has been a bad one. Every book in the series is a super sexy succubus story filled with mystery and romance.

Dark but delicious there is just enough humour in this series to stop it from being too hard. I really love the characters in this series and over time I have come to care a lot for Georgina. This new installment showed more about Georgina's past and I soaked up every little detail. The story had me trapped just as much as my favourite succubus was and I didn't want to leave her for even one minute. With a small cliffhanger ending I am eager to see what comes next. I hope the wait isn't long because I feel Georgina would also hate to be kept waiting.

If you haven't already had the pleasure of reading any of Richelle Mead's books then I can only highly recommend them. The Succubus series is truly amazing Paranormal Urban Fantasy and her Young Adult series, Vampire Academy, is worth reading if you are young or old. Then there is the very tasty Dark Swan series which is definitely a must read for any Fantasy lover. So make sure you get to know this author soon because she is one of the biggest and best out there at the moment.

Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals—all child’s play to a succubus like her.

Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend’s wedding is a different story. Georgina isn’t sure which is worse—that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions. Georgina’s roommate, Roman, is cluttering her apartment with sexual tension. Then there’s Simone, the new succubus in town, who’s intent on corrupting Seth.

But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that’s visiting her thoughts, trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she’ll be too weak to resist. And when that happens, she’ll discover who she can trust, who she can’t—and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity…
