Book Description

Georgina Kincaid has been a bad, bad succubus. . .

. . .which should be a good thing. But lately, thanks to her foul mood over breaking up with bestselling writer Seth Mortensen, she's been so wicked that Seattle's über-demon Jerome, decides to "outsource" Georgina to a rival--and have her spy for him in the process.

Being exiled to the frozen north--okay, Vancouver--and leaving Seth in the cozy clutches of his new girlfriend is unpleasant enough. Then Jerome is kidnapped, and all immortals under his control mysteriously lose their powers. One bright spot: with her life-sucking ability gone, there's nothing to keep Georgina from getting down and dirty with Seth--nothing apart from his girlfriend that is. Now, as the supernatural population starts turning on itself, a newly mortal Georgina must rescue her boss and figure out who's been playing them--or all hell will break loose. . .

Praise for Richelle Mead and her Succubus series. . .

"Richelle Mead delivers sexy action and tongue-in-cheek hellish humor--if damnation is this fun, sign me up!" --Lilith Saintcrow, author of The Devil's Right Hand

"This is one of those series I'm going to keep following." --Jim Butcher, New York Times bestselling author

"The mix of supernatural mystery, romance, and reluctant succubus is great fun." --Locus

"Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal, accented with eroticism." --Booklist

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the fourth in the Georgina Kincaid series. She is a succubus, prowling the streets of Seattle, sucking the life out of men with her intimacies with them. This story builds on the three prior novels, reintroducing characters like Roman (her relationship with him in an earlier work ended badly, to put it mildly).

The major plot twist here is that the boss (a demon, Jerome) in the Seattle region disappears. The power of immortals (vampires, imps, and succubae) also disappears. They are immortal, but do not have their powers. If Jerome can't be found, then a new boss will need to be selected. Part of the driving force of this book is the dynamics of those who want to take over; indeed, ambition has led to something of a coup d'état.

Georgina, in an improbable alliance with her former boyfriend, Seth Mortenson (the dilemma that they faced--they could not be intimate without her slowly draining him of his life force), sets out to find Jerome. Adding to the dynamics of the work is that after their breakup, Seth began dating one of Georgina's best friends, Maddie (you need a scorecard to keep the players straight if you haven't read earlier works in this series; one piece of advice--read some of the earlier volumes to understand context).

There are the poignant moments between Seth and Georgina; now, they can be intimate without damage to him as she has lost her powers. But--there is also the knowledge that this is only for the short term and that they are both betraying Maddie.

The book ends with some unresolved tensions that promise to animate future volumes in this series. All in all, another fine entry in the series by Richelle Mead.

In Georgina's fourth outing Mead continues the heartrending tone that initiated by it's predecessor, Succubus Dreams. Our heroine is deep in a funk and from page one it seems like the hits just keep coming for her. Don't take that as a negative though. This installment provides everything that readers have come to expect and love from Mead, and some. Heat doesn't lack for any of the love, passion, mystery and action that made the first three novels so gripping. But for each bit of those elements, the pain is ratcheted up about three times more.

With the brief reprieve from her soul-sucking abilities, Georgina is faced with the opportunity to partake of everything we've seen her long for - only it may be too little, too late. Bittersweet the novel may be, it's pervasive sadness only lends to make the story that much more beautiful.

The mystery part of the plot blends in well with the romance here too. It's evenly paced and well thought out. It also serves as mechanism to better illustrate the complexity of each player involved in the story. Major characters and bit players alike are all very nuanced and add to the impression that, despite this being a story about the preternatural, this is all very real. I know it sounds cliche but I laughed, I cried. I definitely cried.

Consequences seems to be the theme of this one. Almost every party involved is faced with a decision of their own to make, and for each one the outcome is felt by all. There are a few surprises in-store and, for those concerned, the issues of Georgina's contract and her prophetic dreams from Nyx are each addressed.

Fans, you won't be disappointed. Heartbroken sure, but in that respect you're no better off than Georgina.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the first ones February 15, 2011

I liked the fourth installment in the Georgina Kincaid series as well as the other ones, though not for the same reasons. I liked the mystery of Jerome's summoning, and although not brilliant, that part was interesting, but while I enjoyed the developing and the conclusion of Seth and Georgina's relationship in the first three books, their "fling" - as G calls it - in this one was incredibly painful and annoying for me to read.

I don't like infidelity, and you would think that a one-thousand-something-year old succubus who cheated on her husband (which lead to her selling her soul to hell and living centuries with the guilt and the sorrow) would know that making her ex-boyfriend (who's still in love with her) cheat on her girlfriend (who's her best friend) by sleeping with him is not a good idea.
And that she would at least remember the simple effect of sin on human soul - as in, cheating on your girlfriend is a bad, bad thing to do that will send you straight to hell, especially if your name is Seth Mortensen.

Anyway, I think Richelle Mead tends to slack off after the first half of a series. It happened with Vampire Academy - which I loved until the fourth book, and then, not so much - and I've noticed that in Georgina's series too. I really hope the last books will be a little more satisfying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to the series May 31, 2009
In this book Georgina finds herself investigating mysterious disappearance of her archdemon boss Jerome. While Jerome is away, all his subordinates temporarily lose their supernatural abilities which includes Georgina's life-sucking "curse." Obviously, it opens new opportunities for Seth/Georgina relationship, or does it change anything at all?

"Succubus Heat" is an extremely engaging book, although very dark and sad. I found it very hard to put down and finished it within hours. The only negative about this series is an excruciatingly painful relationship between Georgina and Seth. I just hate seeing them hurt each other over and over again in the name of their undying soul-mate-kind-of- love. Why can't they just be selfish and enjoy each other while they can, disregarding everyone around them? But I guess this torturous love affair is exactly what makes this series so addictive(for me). I'll be anxiously awaiting next installment coming out in March of 2010, but looking back I probably wouldn't have started reading this series until all books were out because ultimately all installments end with a cliffhanger and I hate it.

P.S. I did not think Seth did enough in this book to redeem himself in my eyes. Still disappointed in him

So he's going to marry Maddie the bland, Maddie the beige... in lieu of the steamy love he felt with Georgina. I bet he was more turned on watching Georgina get her rocks off solo than he ever is having sex with Maddie.
