Georgina Kincaid a été un vilain, vilain succube... ce qui devrait être une bonne chose. Mais depuis sa rupture avec l'auteur de best-sellers Seth Mortensen, son caractère est devenu si insupportable que son patron Jerome, l'archidémon de Seattle, décide de la « prêter » à l'un de ses rivaux... et de lui faire jouer les Mata Hari par la même occasion. Mais Jerome est enlev...more

Have to admit, this was the book I was looking forward to the most in this re-read. And I know I could just easily go back to that scene anytime but that would mean missing out on Carter and Kayla and cheesecakes and that tortie. Oh and Hugh. I always seem to neglect to give Hugh some lovin'. I like that I got to experience this book again without the need to know what happens to Seth and Georgie IMMEDIATELY, though I have to admit the lead up to...more

I think I've finally figured out why I'm not that into this series. I'm a fan of both Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy and Dark Swan series, but for some reason I've had a hard time connecting with this one, and it wasn't until Book 4 that I realized what was bothering me. (Yeah, I'm a little slow on the uptake.) It's simply this: I believe in fidelity. Both emotionally and sexually.

The thing is, I'm pretty live and let live, so it doesn't really faze me if people want to live their lives in open...more

I'm awarding an extra half star to this book because dammit, I'm still talking about that office scene! I've read content from the mild to the taboo extreme in terms of steam level and this scene still remains one of my all time favorites of any book, any series. Why? Because it was unexpected from a character who I thought I had figured out. Man, I really loved the office scene.

Never mind that it's a Mead series, so of course I'm going to love the characters and plot. In t...more

Recommends it for: those who easily forgive liars and cheaters
Well, it's been much less agonizing to re-read this installment than the one before. Why? Because why worry about rotten people and their love troubles? It is a bold move on the author's part to create a couple as flawed as Georgina and Seth and expect readers to continue rooting for them. Now I only enjoy this rompy series for its cast of characters, killer dialog and smut. And when I hear Seth and Georgina praising each other's virtues or proclaiming their super-special soul mate love while (v...more
If you are Canadian, you will most likely enjoy some of the cultural references in this book. We Canadians are very proud of some of our institutions: Hockey Night in Canada, our politeness, and Tim Horton’s. What is Tim Horton’s? It’s a place to go and get your double double early in the morning on the way to take your kids to hockey practice. What’s a double double? A coffee with 2 creams and 2 sugars. No venti lattes there. And they do make yummy Timbits. That’s donut holes to the rest of the...more

This book is well written and heart breakingly sad. I don't like Georgina Kincaid's choices and decisions in a lot of instances. She clearly lacks some serious impulse control.

On the otherhand, after reading seventeen books of Anita Blake being "forced" to be a whore by magic and other such things, and after all the other fiction I've read where women are "forced" to do the exact same things that Georgina does, I kind of really respect Richelle Mead. She doesn't take the easy way out.

If she wa...more

These books only get better, how is this even possible? I want to give it 6 stars.

You wouldn't believe how many somersaults and plunges my stomach made while I was reading this, so many highs and lows, I can only compare it to a roller coaster. Please give me more Richelle.

I'm too caught up in my thoughts because of what happened to come up with a decent review, I have a lot on my mind right now.

I think I'll leave you with two things:

If you haven't heard the cover Placebo made of Running Up That...more
What is it about the way Richelle Mead writes, that she is able to perfectly capture the pain of a romantic break-up? She somehow is able to make me relive the pain of feeling cut-off from a loved one, abandoned and dejected – it ain’t good! Thank goodness there is an interesting story woven in through this pain. Fans of Mead and Georgina, if you have stuck through this series for the first three books, you will want to read Succubus Heat. There is a payoff to the series and it is done quite wel...more

Succubus Heat was hot! This one is by far the best book in the whole series.

This is how I imagine Seth and Georgina. I know they should be older but I don't care.

[image error]
Words cannot express my love for Richelle Mead. What an amazing author. I have read all of her books but 1, and love every single one of them. She is without a doubt my favourite author.

Book 4 in the series continues to follow the story of Georgina Kincaid, resident succubus of Seattle. Weird things start happening in Canada, beginning with the misbehavings of a satanic cult. A demonic turf war ensures and the archdemon of Seattle, Jerome, then sudd...more
YAY - Seth finally channeled his inner O'Neill, at last! But at what cost? Oh man...

Succubus Heat is another fast page turner with a big dose of immortal intrigue, and best of all...lots of heat! Mead is so good at showing all the shades of gray, muddying up morals, ethics - there's no clear-cut right and wrong, good and bad. Her evil characters have touches of good in them, some more than others while the good characters (angels and humans with glowing souls) have flaws, some fall from grace -...more
Ah, more delicious Richelle Mead writing. I freaking love this series. We pick up a few months after the end of Succubus Dreams, with Georgina still pretty damn pissed off and depressed about Seth’s asshole behavior. But luckily (or unluckily), she gets embroiled in a hellish political showdown between her boss, Jerome (or He-Who-Looks-Strangely-Like-John-Cusack), and the archdemon of Vancouver. When Jerome goes missing–and when Georgina and her fellow Seattlite supernatural beings find themselv...more
As much as I adore these characters, there not ones that I can say I'm very proud of. They lie, they cheat and nine out of ten they are selfish and are out for there own gain. And yet, I wouldn't have any of them any other way.
That, is really saying something.

In short, I loved this book, and I was so happy to see Roman again and so happy things worked out.
But on to the main focus of this book. Seth. Georgina. Hell Yeah!!
I loved every single moment there were together. I want so much for these t...more
I LOVED this one!!..Definitely my favorite so far!!..I would say to anyone who jumped off of this bandwagon earlier on in the series to JUMP BACK ON!!..i don't want to give anything away because so much stuff happens in this book..but i will say that had my friends NOT pushed me to "keep reading!!" i might have given up earlier!! So to all those GRs friends of all know who you are!! ;)...THANK YOU!! These have been so much fun to read!! :)

Oh shut up about seth already. Would have been a good book, except for the pages and pages of "woe is me".
I was lucky enough to get this book a little bit early at a book signing today and dove right in. The previous book in this series was more than a little sad, and this book wasn't any different. It starts out with Georgina really struggling to find her equilibrium again after losing Seth to a coworker, affecting both her work at the bookstore and for Jerome. Jerome, fed up with her attitude, decides to use her to help solve a problem he's facing with a neighboring archdemon up in Vancouver, BC....more

This is the fourth in the Georgina Kincaid series. She is a succubus, prowling the streets of Seattle, sucking the life out of men with her intimacies with them. This story builds on the three prior novels, reintroducing characters like Roman (her relationship with him in an earlier work ended badly, to put it mildly).

The major plot twist here is that the boss (a demon, Jerome) in the Seattle region disappears. As one result, the power of lesser immortals (vampires, imps, and succubae) disappear...more

The Georgina Kincaid series is a must-read for anyone who loves urban fantasy. Richelle Mead crafts such an amazing series with a likeable but reluctant Succubus who has the ability to charm almost anyone.

I’ve come to adore Georgina in a way I’d never expect. For someone who is eternally damned, Georgie is quite the dreamer. Still stuck on the dreams that Nyx has put inside her head, Georgie finds herself dreaming of another existence where she can have it all with children and a loving husband....more

What did I think?

I think that with all the Tim Hortons name dropping, Richelle Mead should have at least made a shout out to sour cream glazed donuts.

I think that Georgie has the best friends anyone could ever wish to have.

I think that (view spoiler)

I don't care about this relationship.

I enjoy Georgina as a character overall and the secondary characters are highly entertaining. The story is engrossing, even when you're rolling your eyes and sighing at the fact that Georgina doesn't seem to understand things the way she should.

But for the love of Hera I don't care about Seth, Seth and Maddie or Seth and Georgina.

Not to mention I can't feel any sympathy for anyone. Seth and Georgina broke up for bullshit, they didn't get together because of...more
This 4th book in the Georgina Kincaid Series has me in emotional turmoil. So much happens, so much heartache and underneath it all is hope. Hope for the future and a family that just might be out there for Georgie.

After spending so much time wondering what it would be like to be with Seth this book does not disappoint in that department. Well at least they do get to spend some time together but for those of us Seth fans it was too sort. Just when you think that Georgina cant take anymore, Seth...more

Seriously, I just can't stop. I started the first Georgia Kincaid book only days ago and I just can't stop reading them. What an absolutely fantastic series, these books are going on my favorites shelf. I'd write a better review but I don't even want to waste the time when I could be reading book 5. All I have time to say right now is if you like Paranormmal Romance or Urban Fantasy you HAVE to read this series. Now, on to the next for me.
The angst this book has caused me is so severe I feel I may have lost my will to read. Seth is dead to me. I don't know what Mead is trying to accomplish by dragging him through the mud, but my opinion of him is so tarnished, that I doubt the best of storylines will redeem him. Overall this book was fantastic; it takes a great book to make me despair at this magnitude.
I loved it. Made me feel a lot better about the last book. I love Roman so I am happy he is back and glad Georgina got her tortie cat.

In Georgina's fourth outing Mead continues the heartrending tone that initiated by it's predecessor, Succubus Dreams. Our heroine is deep in a funk and from page one it seems like the hits just keep coming for her. Don't take that as a negative though. This installment provides everything that readers have come to expect and love from Mead, and some. Heat doesn't lack for any of the love, passion, mystery and action that made the first three novels so gripping. But for each bit of those elements...more
Another great novel! It makes me really happy that this author can continue in a series with a) the same main characters and b) still dazzle me with her writing genius.

After finishing the third book, I felt incredibly depressed, as I am sure a lot of fans felt right along with me. I'm not sure I agree any more with the standings in book four, like in book three, BUT the author did an amazing job of soothing my own feelings about everything. It's strange to feel those sort of crazy ups and downs...more

“How come when mortals want things, their only option is to make a deal with Hell and sell their soul? Why can’t they make deals with God in exchange for good behavior?"

It was another of those rare moments when I’d surprised Carter. I waited for the glib answer I’d mentioned to Seth, something along the lines of goodness being its own reward. The angel considered for several seconds. "Humans make those deals all the time," he said finally. "They just don’t make them with God."

"Then who are they making them with?" I exclaimed.

“I don't care," said Seth. "I would have done it. I would have sold my soul for you. You and me...I told you. Something's always going to keep us near each other...even if we aren't together.” 143 likes
