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.


I actually love this book the best so far. I have seen mixed reviews, but people, this is a succubus, she is centuries old, she has to do what she does to survive, she signed her soul over to the dark side. Do not confuse her with a mere mortal. At times she can behave like one, she isn’t !!

Seth and her relationship have done well , considering. Georgina is not on Carter’s side, we must remember that. I love Georgina , but I understand that Richelle has to keep writing her the way she does, because she is a succubus, it’s what sets her apart. She is flawed and she does do a lot wrong if she were human, mortal, on the good side of the track, but she isn’t. We care about her because she tries to make the best of her situation. She does a half ass job because she doesn’t enjoy what she has to do...well...sometimes...but that’s the Hell side of her personality. She makes bad judgement calls , but she is bad. No matter how much we want her to be good, her soul isn’t.

Richelle really wrote some ‘fan oneself’ worthy moments in this book.

Georgina is trying desperately to understand how her relationship as a succubus can work with Seth. She loves him, he loves her...but it is not that easy.

Being a mentor to Tawny , who apparently couldn’t score if it fell over in front of her ready for action and having Niphon the imp that she lost her soul to, being in her face, tormenting her , if that isn't enough for her to handle, then there is contending with somebody/thing draining her life energy and a bunch of angels hanging about who aren’t talking to somebody who bats for the other Team.

Richelle broke my heart in this book. She wrote it so well. I kind of felt as bad as Georgina did...oh it was very sad. I kind of felt like it was happening to me.

I can’t help thinking the more I read this series , the more Carter is going to play a role in helping Georgina for the greater good.... eventually. I just like the way he pops up every now and then. He just seems to be there for when she needs somebody the most, or words of comfort. He hints at not being able to say something....I can see where it is going.....oh say something Carter, butt in....well maybe not , I’ve seen what can happen to an angel when they butt in.

Succubus Dreams, is a real page turner with lust, uber smexi moments, betrayal, heartfelt moments, desperate moments, bad judgement, hopeful dreams, memories of long ago and a pause where your heart will break and you will feel as lost as Georgina. I’m looking forward to Succubus Heat.......I need to know......


"What about the man in the dream?" he finally asked.
"There is no man in the dream."
