REVIEW by Lorna: Succubus Blues (Georgia Kinkaid #1) by Richelle Mead (@RichelleMead , @Mollykatie112)

Succubus DreamsWhen 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. 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. . .

EXCERPT: Adrian's Lost Chapter (Bloodlines #0.5) by Richelle Mead (@richellemead)

I am WAY behind on finding this but I wanted to share.  As you all know, I am a huge fan of the Vampire Academy series spin-off, the Bloodlines series.  I was just out on Goodreads adding Silver Shadows (Bloodlines #5) to my to-be-read shelf when I noticed it said “6 books”.  Ummm, nuh uh!  So, I clicked on it, figuring it was more than likely just a duplicate listing.  To my surprise, it was not!  It was something called Adrian’s Lost Chapter.
Off to Google I went to do some research and that’s when I found a chunk of story, on the EW website of all places!  So, although it’s about 3 years late, I wanted to share this with you guys in case you somehow missed it just like I did!

COVER REVEAL: The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4) by Richelle Mead – Release Date 11/19/2013 (@RichelleMead)

I am SOOOOO excited for this title!  It’s a very rare thing to see a series this popular release more than 1 title in a calendar year and I was stoked to find out that after the jaw dropper moment at the end of The Indigo Spell, we get to find out what happens so soon!  – Jena

Please note, the release date listed above is the date listed on both Goodreads and Amazon.

In The Indigo Spell, Sydney was torn between the Alchemist way of life and what her heart and gut were telling her to do. And in one breathtaking moment that Richelle Mead fans will never forget, she made a decision that shocked even her. . . .

But the struggle isn’t over for Sydney. As she navigates the aftermath of her life-changing decision, she still finds herself pulled in too many directions at once. Her sister Zoe has arrived, and while Sydney longs to grow closer to her, there’s still so much she must keep secret. Working with Marcus has changed the way she views the Alchemists, and Sydney must tread a careful path as she harnesses her profound magical ability to undermine the way of life she was raised to defend. Consumed by passion and vengeance, Sydney struggles to keep her secret life under wraps as the threat of exposure—and re-education—looms larger than ever.

Pulses will race throughout this thrilling fourth installment in the New York Times bestselling Bloodlines series, where no secret is safe.
