This week I decided to dare you to read an awesome series by one of my favorite author, the Georgina Kincaid series by Richelle Mead. The series starts with Succubus Blues and it’s a 6 books series. Luckily for you, the last book in the series, Succubus Revealed was released last summer, so you won’t have to wait between each installment!
The series is about a succubus who sold her soul to escape her past. As part of the deal, she has to pray on humans, draining their life force through sexual means. Surprisingly, the series isn't overly sexual, it’s actually almost chaste for an adult series. Georgina is surrounded by 2 vampires, an imp, a demon (her boss) and an angel (who liked to hang out with them for god knows why) and a bunch of humans, unaware of the supernatural world. Georgina has a conscience though and only preys on shady men, to her boss’ dismay. Her life will get complicated though when she falls in love with a human because any sexual encounter she has with him could substantially reduce his life spawn.
Georgina is fabulous, funny, smart, determined and generally made of awesome. She’ll do anything to protect the ones she loves, risking her own life multiple times during the course of this series. Each novel, and the series as a whole, is quite a rollercoaster ride, sometimes leaving you frustrated, sometimes laughing to tears and other times crying your eyes out. I loved every page of those six novels and even though the end was satisfying, I’m really sad the series is over.
I am inviting you to give this amazing series a try, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed! Also, they are re-releasing the book in mass market edition with pretty, new covers!
More about Succubus Blues:
Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.
When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?
But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't.
But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny...
