Created not born, Jezebeth is a succubus. She refuses to be ashamed of what she has to do to continue to exist, but doesn’t revel in it either. One of four sisters who imprisoned a demon for being a danger to humankind, she is now being hunted by that very demon now that he has escaped. With a divine plot in the background, Jezebeth is given help from her queen Lilith in the form of Noah Halston, a horror writer who inadvertently summoned Lilith and now owes her his life, much to his disgust. Preferring to write about the paranormal rather than deal with it, he is an unwilling hero in Jezebeth’s time of need. As these two solitary individuals travel together to get Jezebeth to safety, they begin to actually like one another. What other horrors could be in store for them?
I really enjoyed the Seduction trilogy by this author and was excited to see a new series. I wasn’t disappointed. I enjoyed this book more because it wasn’t as sexually saturated. The Seduction Series was almost too sexual at times (if that is possible).
With the focus on Jezebeth and Noah’s character and morality, this was much more in depth as far as development. It was a little difficult at times keeping the Archangels straight, and the politics are mind boggling, but as a whole the story was very unique and engaging.
Noah’s blasé acceptance made for some interesting moments, as well as the rapid introduction of what he believed to be fictional characters that he took every opportunity to interview for future books. While he was initially judgmental of Jezebeth, as they grew to know one another that changed and morphed into something he wasn’t expecting but embraced wholeheartedly.
Jezebeth was a sad character. Even though she is physically intimate with many, she is close to none. Her emotional evolution towards Noah was subtle but before she knew it, she was immersed in a love she had only heard about. Very heartwarming and entertaining, this is a great start to a new series.
First in a sexy new series featuring four succubus sisters fighting demons and desires.
Jezebeth is living out the centuries as any succubus must-seducing men to survive and corrupting souls to make her quota with her queen, Lilith. But, when she's attacked by a bounty hunter demon, it's a handsome human who saves her.
Noah Halston is a horror writer who owes his life to Lilith. Now he must pay up by eluding the fearsome beasts of hell while escorting a very attractive and tempting succubus safely to Lilith's lair-or else he will forfeit his soul to an eternity of torture.
Trouble is, if he spends too much time with the all too tempting Jezebeth, he may just lose his heart-or, even worse, his life.
