Publisher's Summary

Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess get-up, complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life.

At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to best-selling, sexy writer Seth Mortensen, aka "He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't".

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny.

What the Critics Say

"At the start of a planned series, Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal, accented with eroticism." (Booklist)

"Elisabeth Rodgers’s understated narration displays subtle skill. Her low, even voice traces Georgina’s snarky musings and wistful regrets without melodrama. Rodgers’s vocal choices also support Mead’s secondary characters. Angels mesmerize as they try to convince Georgina to repent. Demonic pals and mortal co-workers emerge with unique voices and endearing concern for the likable Georgina. Mead’s quirky story—the forces of good and evil even gather for Friday night happy hour—is well matched by Rodgers’s intuitive depiction of Georgina’s complexities." (AudioFile)

    "Story might have been good..."
    What did you like best about Succubus Blues? What did you like least?

    The story was interesting and sexy. I could not get past Elisabeth Rodger's voice.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Elisabeth Rodgers’s performances?

    I don't think so, I didn't like the way she read or the tone in her voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Maybe

    "Disappointing plotting and narration"

    I love urban fantasy, but this book was a real letdown. The plot's "twists and turns" were obvious all along the way, the scenes were plodding, and, worst of all, there was almost nothing happening. The sex, which I don't mind in a book but don't go looking for either, was unimaginative and cliche. The main character's romantic dilemma was so repetitive that it had become painfully boring less than halfway through the book, and the sharing of her backstory was ham-handed. The narrator's reading lacks nuance and made the characters sound alternately whiny and smug. All of the voices blend into each other; she didn't manage to create distinctive voices for any of the main characters, and her narrator's voice tended to creep in when characters were speaking. I'm sad that I spend a credit on this.

    "Fun and Unique!"

    An enjoyable listen with a succubus heroine working at a book shop trying to be a normal as possible but failing miserably. Very entertaining with plenty of off the wall characters a a mystery to solve.

    "hmmmm"

    I liked it it was light reading requiring no deep thoughts. Entertaining if u read this book expect it to be superfluous don't go into it looking for depth. It is a good tale with an interesting cast of characters

    I love urban fantasy, paranormal romance, YA, and dystopian. My favorite authors are Ilona Andrews and Kim Harrison.

    "Better than I expected"

    This book exceeded my expectation. I was getting a little tired of urban fantasy series always having the same basic plot, but this one didn't. The narrator is very good and the story was fast paced and interesting. I will listen to the second book in the series.
