Richelle Mead - Succubus Dreams

Some days, a girl just can’t catch a break……especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there’s her relationship with gorgeous bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It’s not just that they can’t have sex in case Georgina inadvertently kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge. Seth's obsessed with finishing his latest novel, and Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block. Then there are the dreams. Someone, or something, is preying on Georgina at night, draining her energy, and supplying eerie visions of her future. Georgina seeks answers from Dante, a dream interpreter with ties to the underworld, but his flirtatious charm only leaves her more confused—especially as the situation with Seth reaches crisis point. Now Georgina faces a double challenge—rein in her out-of-control love life, and go toe-to-toe with an enemy capable of wreaking serious havoc among mankind. Otherwise, Georgina, and the entire mortal world, may never sleep easy again…

Succubus Dreams limelight on the forbidden love of the heart relationship that is now established between Georgina and the shy, handsome author, Seth. The third in this paranormal romance series, Georgina comes to terms with the actuality that she truly wants Seth to be a part of her life, but never a part of her world. He fills an emotional closeness that brings her a delightful contentment of ecstasy without the physical intimacy. As a succubus, Georgina must answer to her higher authority and with it comes not only another world but another endless burden of perplex dilemma. Love is never simplistic and in the end, takes its toll on these two hearts as an innocent third party steps in to establish the famous term...... Love Triangle
On a personal note, as the ending pages of this book unfolded and the unexpected twists were unraveled, I was filled with emotion for the characters and kept texting poor Wendy all evening with my outraged anger. As in real life, not everything has a HEA. Her response to me, "keep reading" and so I shall. Next review #4, Succubus Heat.  My Rating - 4

  1. I really liked this series and sorry I was not able to warn you about what was coming but I wanted you to have the full effect of the book. Poor Georgina, I felt like someone kicked me in the gut at the end of this book.
