Succubus Heat (Georgina Kincaid #4)
Georgina Kincaid has been a bad, bad succubus...
...which should be a good thing. But lately, thanks to her foul mood over breaking up with bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, she's been so wicked that Seattle's über-demon Jerome, decides to "outsource" Georgina to a rivaland have her spy for him in the process.
Being exiled to the frozen northokay, Vancouverand leaving Se...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
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

Okay, whilst I'm not ecstaticly happy about the 'Seth situation', I'm by no means as unhappy as I was at the end of Succubus Dreams. This book went a long way to appeasing my annoyance at the author, even if the 'solution' was far from ideal and we all knew it wouldn't truly end with the white picket fence.
I was oddly and perversely pleased to see (view spoiler)[Roman (hide spoiler)]Dante. Um ... yeah, I'll admit: I totally say that one coming. Talk...more
What’s gotten into Seth?!
And what’s up with the men in her life?
To review: First there was Roman, suave confident, but crazy and murderous. Then there was Seth, the good guy, or so I thought! Since all good things do come to an end, we have her moving onto Dante, of questionable moral standing, a little skeevy but at least upfront to a point. Could she not get a good one, or a good one that lasts?
And here I am, still reading… because… because I’m a sucker for tortured love affairs tha...more
Succubus Heat is the fourth installment in the Georgina Kincaid series.
Because of her constant sulking state after her break up with Seth, Georgina is sent to Canada to investigate a satanic cult which seems to be embarrasing the demon world. In the mean time she has to spy on the region's arch demon Cedric. But... there are other powers at work and Georgina soon gets caught up in much bigger trouble.
There is an up side to it all, though, as Georgina and her friends loose their pow.....more
This book is back up at the 5-star rating, despite the expected resolution of Seth and Georgina's relationship.
Georgina's "boss" has gone missing, and she's the only one brave enough to take on the task of finding him. While the demon is gone, all of her underlings have lost their Hell-ish powers. That means no shape-shifting for Georgina, and also no stealing of souls.
The ending didn't shock me because I had read the summary of book #5, Succubus Shadows. Normal...more
Okay, rant over. Now onto my true review.
I had a lot of fun with this book. Mainly despairing over the fact that Georgina and Seth were not together(yes, I know I know even though I hated him) and that she was...more
This was the first book where I didn't completely know who the big bad was from the very beginning, which is always a plus.
I'm not from Canada, but I did laugh at a lot of the Canadian references. I expect Canadians would get a chuckle or two out of them. In addition to that, the book is truly entertaining. It's full of wit a...more
So, after the emotional upheaval that was book 4, Succubus Dreams, I thought I was prepared for more Mead emotional roller coastering. But alas, I was caught off guard again.
Having been very irate at Seth in the last book - yes I know he was doing it to spare Georgina more heartache, but did he have to rub her nose in it?...more
Sukkubus Georgina ist deprimiert. Dass sich ihr Freund Seth von ihr getrennt hat, schlägt ihr sehr stark auf's Gemüt und sorgt dafür, dass sie sich wie eine Zicke aufführt, denen es völlig egal ist wie sie hinterher mit ihren ausgesaugten Opfern umgeht oder wie ihre Vampir- und Koboldfreunde über sie denken. S...more
Book #3 left Georgina and me in a weeping puddle, but now it is about 4 months later, and rather than weepy, Georgina has turned bitter, cold, and depressed. Jerome, her archdemon, is tired of dealing with her attitude so he decides that a bit of work away from Seattle might be good for everyone, so she is hopping between Seattle and Canada, and getting caught up in demon politics.
This series has 6 books in it and, for me, this book...#4...was the one that didn't quite do it for me. It...more
Jerome is so angry with Georgina that he's loaned her out to a rival demon in Vancouver to help quash a cult of Satanists who are making evil look bad. Yeah, who knew??!
Then Georgina loses her powers—she can't shapeshift new clothes, accessories. She even has to do her own hair…and she had no idea it got so dang frizzy! All her friends h...more
This book was an emotional roller coaster ride. Georgina just can't stay out of trouble. Specially since she has thown her self to the gutters after being dumped by Seth. How can she ever recover? Well how about dating a bum who has pretty...more
(view spoiler)[I am so sad that Dante turned out to be a bad guy. I really liked him in the last book and I'm sad now that he's just an idiot. (hide spoiler)] That being said, Dante makes for a nice contrast to Georgina. Bot...more
It had been three months. Why wasn’t I over him? Why did I still want to cry or break something whenever I saw him?
Don’t ask the question if you don’t want to hear the answer.
The best way to pull one past people was to make a big deal about something else. Misdir...more

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.
