"This story isn't a typical sex-filled romp featuring randy alpha males and Buffy clones.
...the relationship works well, mostly because Ms Winters doesn't try to force her characters to conform to typical romance character code of conduct. Instead, the romance flows along its own unorthodox currents." -- Mrs. Giggles Reviews
"four pitchforks out of five" -- Succubus.net
"Save My Soul is probably my favorite book from Preternaturals Series" -- Paranormal Muse
From the Author
Save My Soul was actually written before Blood Lust. Originally it was going to be a demon romance series. I was paranoid about jumping on the vampire band wagon and didn't want to blend into the noise of all the other vampire stories. Demons were getting popular in the paranormal romance world and they were "close enough" to vampires that I would enjoy what I was writing, without it being vampires.

In Save My Soul, I received my first introduction to the incubus demon. This was quite an intriguing creature for me since I'm all about the smut. The smuttier the better and reading about a demon that survives off the sexual energy of females seemed really hot!
Anna Worthington has just returned to her childhood town of Golatha Falls, Georgia to settle some affairs from her late father's estate. Not wanting to stay in town for longer than she needs to, Anna starts to head out but decides to take a detour down Cranberry Lane to look at a house that she has been in love with since childhood. The house is for sale and while taking a tour of the house, Anna feels compelled to buy it.
Soon after moving in Anna starts to hear things go bump in the night. It starts out with objects getting moved around, her television being turned on automatically and seemingly stuck on the Food Network channel. She had heard the house was haunted by a ghost named Beatrice and just assumes that is who is haunting her. But then one night during an attempted date rape, Luc appears out of nowhere to defend her against her assailant. To her horror she realizes that she is not being haunted by a harmless old lady but a scary demon.
Luc is an incubus demon who has been trapped in the house ever since a witch named Beatrice cursed him 50 years ago. He and Beatrice had been lovers but Beatrice could not accept Luc's need to feed from other females. Their love affair ends tragically in death leaving Luc to haunt the various families that live in the Cranberry Lane house or live alone when the house is empty.
Luc falls in love with Anna. He bonds her to him to keep her safe from other incubi and won't allow her to leave him for extended periods of time. He flirts with Anna and taunts her shamelessly but she still will not give in to his numerous attempts at seduction. Anna knows that if she doesn't figure out how to break the curse that she will end up becoming another meal for Luc.
To buy herself some time, Anna brings back a harem of prostitutes for Luc to feed from. For real? Yes. That move was laugh out loud funny to me. `Here honey, here's some other kitty cat for you to play with. Now leave me the hell alone.' Well played, Anna! I almost felt sorry for Luc. He wasn't even a little excited at the prospect of having five live-in lovers. All he wanted was Anna.
"You know it could be so good. You have to feel this thing between us. Those other girls, they're just food. It doesn't mean anything. You're the one I want."
She rolled her eyes and chucked a pillow at him. "Yes, the male argument from time immemorial. They don't mean anything. It's just sex. Bull****. I told you I cannot and will not share." ~ Luc & Anna
Save My Soul had a lot going on in it. There were several quirky characters that added depth to the story and Zoe Winters did a great job with the dialogue in this book. The snarky banter between all the characters was humorous and I loved the interactions between Luc and Anna. I was rooting for them throughout the book as I really did like Luc a lot. A whole host of supernatural characters tries to help Anna break Beatrice's curse. But in this twisted ending, Anna is the only one who can save Luc.
Save My Soul gets 4 out of 5 stars.
Anna Worthington has bought a haunted house. Turns out her ghost is actually a demon: specifically an incubus named Luc. He was trapped in the house by a previous owner/lover. The only way he can be freed is if Anna gives him her soul or burns her house to the ground. She doesn't want to do either. As their battle of wills heats up, Luc protects her from others of his kind, a would be rapist, and a priest determined to save her soul; falling in love with her along the way. Throw in a best friend who is a self proclaimed witch, a coven of witches, a "harem" of prostitutes, some gypsies, and a couple of nosy neighbors, and you have a book that is fairly fast paced and will hold your interest until the end. It has a nice twist at the end that I should have suspected, but totally did not see coming. I have not read anything previously by this author, but with one book Zoe Winters has made it to my favorite authors list. I have already purchased the first book in this series, and fully intend to buy the rest. If you enjoy paranormal romance then you can't go wrong with Zoe Winters' Preternatural Series.
At first I was a little disappointed. It started much slower than the first book (which is actually three novellas in one). Part is that this was a full length book, so there was more build up at the beginning. Anna is a somewhat weak heroine, but does get better throughout the book. Luc doesn't make a physical appearance for several chapters.
There is a lot of story that goes one in the middle and while it is good, I will leave that up to the reader to go through. The end is wonderful. There is a big twist that I can't speak about.
While this wasn't my favorite story, it is still very good. I will continue to read the series and see what else this author has out there.
