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.
And if that wasn't bad enough, she's started having dreams shadowy, dangerous but alluring dreams, dreams that don't want to let go. These dreams are created by the Oneroi, demons in the service of Nyx, a creature from Hell who's bent on revenge. These are dreams that can trap their chosen victim and drain their powers through nightmares. This mysterious force that’s visiting her thoughts, is trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she’ll be too weak to resist. And Georgina is powerless as she watches those in the real world try to find her, she comes to understand that her freedom her fate lies in the hands of the only one who can find her soul, who just happens to be the man who’s about to marry someone else. She’ll discover who she can trust, who she can’t—and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity…

My Thoughts:

Ok I honestly had been waiting for this novel for like ever! I got to read it a bit early because I ordered it off of the WA Bookstore site on Richelle’s site. It’s face-paced, but not nearly as kick ass as the other novels but this one is different for a reason. Poor Georgie, she honestly never has it easy. If it’s not with her unexplainable attraction with Roman, it’s her unattainable relationship with her first and only love Seth. There’s only one problem, Seth’s getting married. So while she’s helping her best girl friend with the wedding preparations, she thought that she had it hard. Well think again. Mead offers another mind blowing book, filled with love, lust and testing friendships. I loved this novel so much because we can better understand Georgina’s past. It left us with a huge cliff hanger and a few unanswered questions that I hope will be answered in the next one! Can not wait! I give this novel 5 out of 5 paws.
