Succubus Blues[edit]

Succubus Blues is the first novel in the series. It introduces the character of Georgina Kincaid, an immortal (though still very human) succubus, her coworkers at her human job, and her damned co-workers at her real job. Despite her wholesome and dull position at a Seattle bookstore, Georgina is in fact charged with tempting men to sin so that she can score points for team Hell, and recharge her own personal magical essence. The status quo is upset when her favorite author comes to town for a book signing and immortals around her start inexplicably dying.[2]

Film rights for Succubus Blues have been sold to Fox TV.[3]

Succubus on Top[edit]

Succubus on Top is the second novel in the series.

Georgina Kincaid's job sucks. Literally.

Love hurts, and no one knows it better than Georgina Kincaid. If she so much as kisses her new boyfriend, she’ll drain his life force. Georgina is a succubus—a demon who draws her power from other men’s pleasure. Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago. But it seems completely unfair that a she-demon whose purpose is seduction can’t get hot and heavy with the one mortal who knows and accepts her for who she is.

It’s not just her personal life that’s in chaos. Doug, Georgina’s co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work. She could use help finding out, but Bastien, an irresistibly charming incubus and her best immortal friend, is preoccupied in the suburbs with corrupting an ultra-conservative talk radio star—and giving Georgina some highly distracting come-hither vibes. Georgina is going to have to work solo on this one—and fast because soon, Doug’s life won’t be the only one on the line…

Succubus Dreams[edit]

Succubus Dreams is the third novel in the series.

First, Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men, can't have sex with her gorgeous bestselling author boyfriend Seth Mortensen—in case she inadvertently kills him. Second, Georgina's under demonic orders to mentor the new (and surprisingly inept) succubus on the block. Third, someone's manipulating her dreams, 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 a crisis point. Georgina needs to 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.

Succubus Heat[edit]

Succubus Heat is the fourth novel in the series.[1] RT Book Reviews found it amusing but said the plot dragged; they awarded 3 stars.[4] It was 4th equal in Publishers Weekly's BHB Reader’s Choice Best Books of 2009.[5]

Succubus Shadows[edit]

Succubus Shadows is the fifth novel in the series.

Succubus Revealed[edit]

Succubus Revealed is the sixth novel in the series. In this book Georgina discovered that her contract was void because Seth turned out to be her husband from her first marriage and that violated her and Seth's contract. In the end Roman sacrificed himself for Georgina to go free and it was Yasmine who decided that the contract was void in the court of hell. Seth and Georgina got back their souls and got married. As it turned out Carter's assignment was to save Georgina's soul.

City of Demons[edit]

City of Demons is a novella in the Georgina Kincaid series. It is found in the anthology, Eternal Lover and takes place between the second ("on Top") and third ("Dreams") titles.[6]
