"My time in the hourglass was almost up."

Incubus is an action-packed stand-alone paranormal romance full of intrigue and passion. In a world where gods, goddesses, and powerful beasts dwell, Lilah will do whatever it takes to return home.

"This place is seriously fucked."
Lilah, once a powerful maiden to a goddess, has been ripped away from her world. Now she is determined to earn her way back. The only way to get back home is to earn the trust of a notorious incubus Roth de Lis. But as L

Ah, damn, saying how "fantasy" genre is a very grateful setting for a vast playground is simply an understatement!

And Celia Aaron did just that, she had set a play for us, a perfect game with perfect elements, mixing magic, mythology, fantasy, romance, passion and love into a fast paced action filled joyride and honestly, in that kind of setting, anything goes...

Love Celia Aarons work and as what I have read previously is of a contemporary nature (The Acquisition series) I was excited to see what she would produce in regards to a paranormal offering.
"Incubus" was a really great start to a new series.
It did initially take me a short while to get into the groove with this, but when I did this was magic in motion.
I really do feel this may have been more to do with the fact that I have not read this genre for a while so I was a bit out of whac

Lilah was a warrior of Artemis, cast out for falling in love and giving her virtue to a man. Desperate to get back into the good graces of the goddess and back to Olympus, she’s willing to do just about anything. Tasked with bringing Roth to Ares for a past indiscretion, she goes to his stomping grounds to learn more about him, stalk him, and worm her way into his life. Roth is an incubus, or so it seems, but the more time Lilah spends with him, the more she discovers the man many never get to k ...more

Lilah was a warrior maiden. Once a warrior for Artemis, she was now banished from the Forgotten Forrest to roam the mortal land. She found a way to get back to the goddess' good grace, but the simple task might end up proving difficult.

Celia Aaron writing a PNR? I want to see, count me in!!! This book was very different from the other books I have read by this author. First because of the PNR factor and second because of what it made me feel.

I didn't know what I was going into when I started Incubus, and I really liked what I found out. The mythological setting was very interesting and particularly the original approach of the gods and goddesses. Ares, Artemis, Apollo... as you have never seen them!

Back to our story...

Wow. I mean, I knew Celia was a super freakin talented writer of dark romance and all things smutty, but now she’s gone and added paranormal/fantasy to her bow, and you know what? It’s a-maze-ing!

In this tale of gods and goddesses, we follow Lilah on her path to redeem herself and get back in the good graces of Artemis. Once a strong warrior maiden, Lilah was banished from Olympus, and forced to live in the mortal world. Her only chance at getting back to Olympus, lies in the hands of Roth de Li

Actual rating: 2.5 stars

So this was my first erotica-fantasy book ever and I really tried to keep an open-minded view about this genre considering it would not be my first pick. I picked it up for the hype, and the idea of having a world where supernatural beings (like vampires and werewolves) AND greek gods are involved together in one, it really intrigued me how well it was going to be executed.

Truth be told, it left much to be desired.

I love Celia Aaron’s books to death...I will never be disappointed!!!

I love this one in particular because it was a paranormal romance and I don’t read enough of those.

Gods ..Goddesses...Vampires..werewolves..incubi and any other creature you can think of was present added to an interesting love story and steamy scenes you’ve got one hell of a book!!!

I went into this story totally blind and what a ride! I’m one of those followers that believe Aaron has “the gift” and she can own it in any genre! She not only proved she could in Incubus, but she NAILED it!

Lilah is the hunter. Roth is the hunted. Or is it the other way around? You’ve got to read this story! It’s well written, the characters are fun, and the scenes are amazing! I loved learning about how “others” lived. Their bar scenes are no different from bar scenes “here” lol. Same assholes
Love Celia Aaron's story of Lilah a committed hand maiden of a Greek goddess and Roth de Lis an Incubus and their natures versus trials and finally their romance.

In this paranormal extravaganza that mixes Greek God myths and legends, which also have vampires and werewolves, all with magical fantasy and intertwined with passion, romance, and ultimately love and to what ends Lilah and Roth will go to for the love of the other.

Hope Celia writes more like this.

Just hits my idea of five star read.

Lilah was one of the goddess Artemis' feared warrior maidens but when she ditches the 'maiden' part of that title Artemis banishes her to the mortal world. She spends the next century searching for a loophole, or for someone to champion her cause. She eventually finds some information that leads to a mission that she hopes will get her back into Artemis' good graces and back with her sister warriors.

Well, well, well...ladies and gentlemen, what we have here is some of the finest entertainment between two book covers you could ever hope for.

You like PNR, you're in luck...
How about some Greek gods/goddesses and immortal demons, yep, they're in there...
Werewolves and vampires (*shivers), we got those too...
Tie that all up with a bow in a love story about a sexy and dangerous immortal incubus and a bada$$, exiled, immortal female warrior on a mission, and you have hours of delightful escape.

Incubus is a good start to what is shaping up to be an amazing series. It is filled with so many supernatural beings that I can't wait to find out more about. I loved that it mixed history with mythology and a whole lot of the author's imagination which gave it that extra oomph.

I also loved how badass and fierce the heroine, Lilah was and how caring the hero was with her. However I expected there to be more debauchery as the hero, Roth was an incubus. Despite this I thought it was an awesome rea

I am sitting on my desk while writing this review and I am going back three days ago when I read Incubus. First I felt intrigued. I had read the blurb and I was like there is my kind of book. There is the book I have been craving especially in the paranormal genre. Secondly, I felt consumed by the story, dialogue and characters. It was unique and effortless. Lastly as I was finishing the book, I was blown away. Blown away by the action. Blown away by the magic of story. Blown by swoon worthy and ...more

I have to start this review by stating that this is best read if 2017 for me. It was so much more than I was expecting. I truly believe that this story is a MUST ADD to anyone’s reading list (I have added it to my favorites file, and read it twice in three days).

This is 56 chapters of romance, epic adventure, and a story spanning centuries. It is a mini Iliad/Odyssey. If Homer were alive today and wanted to write an adventure romance novel, he would scrap his ideas because Celia Aaron had alrea

Gods, goddesses, and other immortals; this is a great PRN/fantasy.

Roth is an incubus that needs to feed from sexual energy to survive. Women easily fall for his charms. He doesn't need to work hard to get them to bed, except for Lilah. She's able to resist him. Lilah is a maiden warrior exile to live on Earth. She's willing to do anything to return home. However, she didn't plan on falling for Roth's seduction.

This book actually surprised me. I wasn’t sure going into it that I would like it, but I absolutely loved Lilah and Roth. The plot in this book was written wonderfully and the author was fantastic in the world building. I especially loved that yet again, the gods were included in the story. I’m not sure what it is lately but I’ve been totally digging when the gods of Olympus are being introduced and put into a story.

This is a paranormal fantasy story that has gods and goddess, immortals demons and vampires. Lilah has been banished from her home and is hunting Roth in the hope that if she captures him all will be redeemed and she can return to Olympus.
