Georgina Kincaid's job sucks.
Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses Seth Mortensen, the shy, sexy, incredibly gifted Seattle writer she's been dating, she'll drain his life force. Georgina is a succubus-a demon who draws her power from other men's pleasure. Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago. But it seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can't get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and accepts her for who she is. It's not just her personal life that's in chaos. Doug, Georgina's co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work. She could use help finding out, but Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, is preoccupied with corrupting an ultra-conservative talk radio star-and giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one-and fast because soon, Doug's life won't be the only one on the line.

The following review can be found in the External Links Below
I enjoyed the first in the series (Succubus Blues) so much that I had to read the second and I'll also buy the third (Succubus Dreams). If you enjoy Kelly Armstrong's Otherworld series or Charlaine Harris's Southern Vampire series then you're sure to relish this series set in contemporary US about Georgina Kincaid, the reluctant succubus and the demon world (and angels too).
No need to explain the plot as it has already been given. This first person series is well written and is slightly different because of the twisted ethics (to survive she must suck the life force from humans in her role as a succubus). Personally I'm a little uncomfortable with Georgina's moral reasoning, although as long as she isn't judging others then it doesn't grate too much (I had great difficulty with the way she judged Roman in the first book). I like the way her relationship with Seth (he's adorable) keeps going and I hope they succeed in future books. One thing I would have liked more of in this second book was the religious background information - there seemed more in the first book and it added depth to the book - so I hope there's plenty in the third.
By the way, congrats to the publisher/amazon for making sure readers know that Succubus Nights and Succubus on Top are the same book.
