Succubus Blues by Richelle Mead
Goodreads synopsis:
Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid's life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven't stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can't have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy's life. At least there's her day job at a local bookstore--free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can't.

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle's demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won't help because Georgina's about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny...

I have the first in another of Richelle's series to read, Storm Born, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet - as with many more books that have been on my shelves for far too long. This one however looks particularly interesting to me at the moment. I've read a couple of really good novels recently that have had either an incubus or a succubus in them, and have really enjoyed reading a paranormal novel that takes a step away from the usual Vampires and Werewolves that I read about, and explores an entirely different creature.

Unless I get this one for Christmas, I won't be buying it for a while to come, as I'm imposing a book buying ban on myself until I've shifted a few (and seeing as I'm getting a fairly decent pile for Christmas). But eventually I will get around to getting this one off the wishlist and onto the shelves!

What books are on your wishlist that you can't wait to get? Let me know in the comments - or if you have a book blog, why not join in? Sign up below :)

I'm trying to impose a book ban on myself but I always failed. Just can't seemed to resist those beautiful books beckoning me with their deceiving covers. I think my sister probably would love the Succubus series. Is it like Christine Feehan or Karen Marie Mooning books?

Primrose, I think it is a little, I guess, but I've not yet read either of those authors, although I have books by both to read. I think it'd be a little more like Karen Marie Moning though - Christine Feehan, I've heard is a little more 'adult'. So I've heard anyway :)
