Sexual encounters that drain the life force from men is a succubus’s raison d’etre, along with
Shape-shifting to achieve whatever look is required. Succubus Georgina Kincaid works as an Assistant Manager for the local bookstore two blocks from her apartment. She lives alone with only her cat, Aubrey for company. However, she does have a close network of friends: other immortals consisting of vampires, imps and demons - and one angel who’s a drinking buddy of her male friends.
Georgina spends her off-hours, dancing, soul-robbing, and reading. Her favorite reading material is a series by author Seth Mortensen. Georgina’s only problem with the series is the books in it just don’t come out fast enough to satisfy her
need to know how it will all come out. Unbelievably, Seth moves to the area and sets up a corner for writing in the very bookstore where Georgina works. He’s a quiet, shy little man, and Georgina just can’t seem to get on the same page as him. She has one hard, fast, rule: No dating nice guys; stick to the lower echelons of mankind - actually
enhance her world by using guys from the seedier side, lowlifes, bums, drunks, etc.
The problem begins when someone starts assaulting and/or killing the members of her
inner circle. The group meets to discuss probable assailants, but they can’t seem to agree on the why and the who. At last a pattern emerges: Immortals who have cross words with Georgina at any point are subject to physical abuse or, worse, death.
Meanwhile, Georgina meets Roman, who impresses her with his knowledge and wit. It doesn’t hurt that he also has stunning good looks. He is persistent about them having a relationship, but Georgina continually fights him off. She loses ground every time she is around him, finding it harder and harder to resist him.
A surprisingly humorous and light-hearted story, Succubus Blues demonstrates a fun side
of evil (while there really is nothing of the sort…). Well-written with a surprise ending and deeply developed characterizations, this is ann engaging and entertaining read. A sequel is due out in January 2008.
