Richelle Mead - Succubus Heat

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 uber-demon Jerome, decides to "outsource" Georgina to a rival--and have her spy for him in the process. Being exiled to the frozen north--okay, Vancouver--and leaving Seth in the cozy clutches of his new girlfriend is unpleasant enough. Then Jerome is kidnapped, and all immortals under his control mysteriously lose their powers. One bright spot: with her life-sucking ability gone, there's nothing to keep Georgina from getting down and dirty with Seth--nothing apart from his girlfriend that is. Now, as the supernatural population starts turning on itself, a newly mortal Georgina must rescue her boss and figure out who's been playing them--or all hell will break loose.
The designed development of the intriguing plot for this book is the best one yet for this series. Breaking all the rules of a HEA, this is not just a romance story. Humor, cheating, love, hate, power, emotional turmoil and broken hearts are just a few of the many facets that are rolled into the pages of this book. There are many prominent characters that stand out from previous books as well as new ones that increase the intensity of the broad fantasy cabal. Complicated twists with messy affairs of hell annex to the misery between the balance of the greater forces of good and evil situations. Aspects of whirling creativity formulate a juicer distinction that sucks you in as you read the last line of the story. On a personal note, after reading the last word I felt like a deer in headlights. I kept thinking, no,... what about,.. and oh no, what about that. So many unanswered endings left in front of me without closure. I want more. 
My Rating - 4
