It is no surprise that I cut my reading teeth in the realm of horror. My world had been shaped by authors such as Stephen King and Clive Barker. Though I do read outside my favorite genre quite often, it is seldom that I come across an author who is able to grip my imagination and pull me into their world the same way as those I grew up reading. Today, I now have two that I can say have done this and Janet Elizabeth Jones is one of them.

Her book, Incubus, captured my mind and pulled me into her

An incubus is a male demon who has intercourse with sleeping women; that's definitely what goes on in this novel but I couldn't classify it as rape at all. Basically what you've got is Meical (which I think is pronounced Michael, but looks like Medical without the "d" so that's what I was reading as I went along - haha!) who was a vampire. He is given a secret herbal mixture to turn him into an Incubus and shortly thereafter saves the life of Caroline, who was supposed to be killed by some evil ...more

Janet Elizabeth Jones has a unique writing voice, which I respect. I started reading with the intention of only taking half an hour and wound up unable to put it down until I was more than halfway through the book. The heroine, Caroline, is strong, smart, and a real fighter. The hero, Meical, is complex and engaging. I enjoyed the story.

My only complaint was that the ending felt overcomplicated to me, and thus not as strong as the rest of the plot. I was also surprised that Meical's past and iss

Incubus is a very well written story with many different facets that allows the reader to enjoy this tale. Science meets the paranormal world as we read the journey the experiment takes Meical on. Ms. Jones gives us not only a sexy incubus, but a woman who may have been down for the count but is definitely not dead. Her will to survive, as well as the compassion she shows for Meical, gives this story heart. This is an adventurous book that contains sex, a smoking hot man, a strong woman, and a d ...more

This book was a first for me by this author. I think she only has one other book. At first I didn't care for it. I couldn't put my finger on it so kept reading. I'm glad I did. I ended up enjoying Incubus a lot and hope the author keeps going with what could be a good series. I did have a problem with some of the story line and felt that Jones could have put more facts into the story, build it up a little. With all that said I still think its a good read.

This genre of book isn't my particular cup of tea. I will say, in the writer's defense, she does have a way of painting a picture. Having mentioned that, there were some very steamy love scenes where I almost felt like a voyeur while reading. I don't think I'll read any more romance novels, going forward. Though, if Janet Jones decides to start writing in another genre, I'll probably pick up a copy of her book.

The beginning was a big rocky. It starts off right away but in such a style that its confusing. After about 5 pages (give or take) I realized what was happening.
The plot it like nothing I have read before, so I give the author mad props for that.

I would've given this book four stars if the theme in it hadn't revolved around Meical deceiving her in her dreams so often.

Storyline was predictable & no real surprises. However it was nice to see a handicapped woman as a heroine.

Not a fan. Found it very hard to focus on this book as the story kept jumping back and forth
