.....especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First, there's her relationship with gorgeous bestselling author Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It's not just that they can't have sex in case Georgina inadvertantly kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challeng. Seth's obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina's under demonic orders to mento the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block.
Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused---especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge--rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina , and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again.....
I stayed up late last night to finish this book, I had to know what was happening to Georgina in all aspects of the crap that was being thrown at her. She's a succubus and generally is able to work through everything good and bad that's happened in her long, long, long life. All she needs is an energy boost from a fling with a guy and she's good to go. Except lately, the energy boosts aren't lasting as long as they should. She goes to bed, sleeps, dreams, and wakes drained to the point of exhaustion and needing another boost soon.
Her secret love life with Seth is becoming rocky. She thought they'd worked out all the kinks (and not the good kind) in their not having sex, but it's becoming extremely difficult to be together and not have one of them needing the other completely.
Then, there's the new in town and inept succubus, Tawny, who Georgina has been ordered to mentor. Getting a guy to have sex should be easy, but Tawny can't get it right no matter what. And if she fails, Georgina is at fault for not showing her the ropes correctly.
Richelle Mead is one of my 'danger' authors, to coin a phrase from my buddy Amy. I can stay up way past my bedtime because I need to see what's going to happen next to her characters.
