Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
This was by far the best of the first five editions to the series. Unlike earlier editions, all the mystery & intrigue that develops is interconnected and revealed near the story's conclusion. The previous cast, including a reappearance of Roman, was utilized exceptionally well along with a host of newcomers.
Georgina's arch-Demon Jerome is kidnapped leaving all those within his purview free from their abilities... vamps can walk in the sun and Georgina can have sex without taking their life energy! Seth & Georgina take advantage of this new found freedom at the expense of tainting their souls. Both are torn over their respect and love for Maddie and wrestle with the guilt of their betrayal. The dark magician introduced in Book 3, Dante, disarms us with his endearment of Georgina. Many others have negatively commented on having lost respect for Georgina & Seth due to their infidelity, but I found their moral struggle realistic. I especially felt Georgina's moral inner conflict and found sympathy with both couples. Again, rocking installment!
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Everything......The storyline, the narration....The anticipation to know what is going to happen is killing me, yet I don't want it to end............
Georgina of course!!! She is funny, loving and strong and takes her job as a succubus in stride with no shame.....
ER does a fabulous job narrating, she performs all characters wonderfully but Georgie is the bessssssst!
I am always sad when Georgina is sad but she takes it a little better than book 3. I cried in book 3 but not this one....she is sooo strong and giving I just know she has to win in the end!!!!!!
Of course start with book 1 you won't be disappointed. I am like Georgina in that I have stretched this series as long as I can because I don't want it to end!!!!!!!!!!!!

This series continues to keep me entertained -- I really like the growth of the characters and the central relationship.
This series is getting increasingly commercial, and I don't find it as amusing or creative as I did in the past.
For background, my favorite authors are George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Ken Follett, Bernard Cornwell, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher and Margaret George.
I wasn't sure how I was going to like this installment to the series because I figured I should be getting bored with Georgina by now. That was a silly worry because I loved her through the entire book and found myself laughing and crying through this book just as much as the first three. I plan to start book 5 tomorrow at work and I can't wait :)
I really only write these reviews to give an idea of my enjoyment and not really to give ideas about the plot because I really don't like to do that.
I will say that the end made me want to start the next book right away but it was the end of the work day for me so couldn't start it today!
Intrigue, suspense, romance.
Georgina - she is so brave and strong and ethical. I love Seth - I want to marry him! And I love Carter - he is so angelic!
Intimacy with Georgina and Seth.
I laughed. I cried.
The drama of Georgina and Seth never ends, and with her losing her "powers" leaves the door open for some extra curricular activities. Very fun listen.
My heart was on the edge through this whole book. It wasn't as sad as the book 3 but I still am missing my happy ending with Seth. Still am hoping that will come in future books.
I deft recommend starting this series from the beginning, it's not a book I would want to skip over.
I'm at home sick n have finished book 3 & 4 in less than 2 days. I'm hooked, still waiting for my happy ending which is so ironic.
Entertaining, interesting, exciting
I love the characters she has in her books.
She puts the attitude and emotion into Georgina which makes the books come alive.
A reluctant succubus lives!
Wish there were many more about Georgina. The author keeps you guessing and keeps it as believable as it can be when a story is about a succubus.
Addicted to books
I loved the dynamics between Seth and Georgina in this book, but it was heart breaking when Georgina realized how what she had done affected Seth. You can imagine how heart wrenching it was for her.
As always I hated to stop this book. I listened it till the very last second not wanting to stop and as soon as I was able to I would be back to listening. I blew threw the book in three days and that is hard to do on work days.
