Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals -- all child's play to a succubus like her.

Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend's wedding is a different story. Georgina isn't sure which is worse -- that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions. Georgina's roommate, Roman, is cluttering her apartment with sexual tension. Then there's Simone, the new succubus in town, who's intent on corrupting Seth.

But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that's visiting her thoughts, trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she'll be too weak to resist. And when that happens, she'll discover who she can trust, who she can't -- and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity

Georgina is always in trouble.  Something is happening because in all her years, she’s never had all the issues of the last one.   I like Georgina and Seth but I don’t.  Neither one has been very honest with others and each other.  As the Georgina Kincaid series progresses, I have liked Seth less and less.

Georgina keeps running into trouble and getting tortured.  And her day-to-day is torturing her enough as she tries to help Maddy with the wedding planning.  Then there is Simone doing something sneaky and disruptive, trying to get with Seth.

Like Dante in the previous book, now Roman is being the loyal and kind support for Georgina, hoping for more.  It’s an abrupt difference from wanting to murder her and I don’t trust it.  I feel badly for him though.  His life has been weird in many ways which were not his fault, but his parents birthing him.  He risks much to try to help Georgina.

In Succubus Shadows, we learn more about Georgina’s past.  We see a bit more personal growth.  There is still the mystery about her contract. Carter knows, and probably Jerome, that something is wrong with it.  Eric may have figured it out too.  The last 20% was a roaring deluge of happenings and then we fall right off the cliff.  It was exciting but I am glad I can read Succubus Revealed soon.

Narration:

Elisabeth Rodgers is the voice of this series and I now easily recognize her distinct voices for these characters, especially Georgina.  I enjoyed her performance of both males and females.   I was able to listen at my normal 1.5x speed.
