Amber's succubus desires are driving her, as well as every man within a five-mile radius, crazy and Irix, the sexy incubus sent to tutor her, isn't helping one bit. Determined to find some balance in her life, as well as get away from his tempting presence, she escapes to visit a college friend in New Orleans.
But the Big Easy is anything but peaceful. Two powerful witch covens are battling for control of the mighty river and the potent ley lines that run through the city. Amber discovers her half-elven heritage may just resolve their differences, but the covens have other, more lethal, ideas. She knows she can restore the elemental energy to balance, but it's not easy to play peacemaker when her succubus side wants to drown the whole city in a tide of lust.
The tensions between the covens aren't her only trouble. There's nowhere Amber can run to escape the siren-call of her demon nature, and nowhere she can run to escape the seductive incubus who won't seem to take no for an answer.

I enjoyed this book but a few things are important to note
I dont recommend reading this if you havent read the imp series - at least as far as Elven blood or you will be missing a lot of important background
The story was good but a bit slow to get going
some of the chapters had sex scenes that wouldnt be out of place in a full erotica novel so if you dont like that sort of thing I wouldnt recommend it. Still if you read the Imp series you would know our heroine is half sex demon so that shouldnt be a surprise
There is less humour in this than the imp books as well
The narrator is good - I prefered her to Angela Rysk who narrates the Imp series
I will definitely download book 2 now its just been released - and hope for more in the series
"Spin off from the Imp series."
A spin off from the Imp series, so I recommend listening to that series first. I actually like the Imp series better, only because there is more humor in those books. If you know anything about the Imp series then you know Debra Dunbar holds nothing back in the sometime distasteful and very sexual department. This wasn't a bad book but if succubus/incubus life styles bug you don't read this book. Although Amber tries to fight her demon half she is slowly starving herself and Irix will not tolerate that. So there is a battle of wills going on between the two. I did like this book but I didn't love it, I will probably read the next book. Narrator is okay, but it did take me a bit to get use to her.
"It may start slow but it doesn't stay that way"
My Fav.. character would be Irix and not just because he's an incubus. He has a voice in this book, Debra has done a great job bringing this person's character out and made his image 3 dementional
I've listened to many of Hollie's work and this one is one of her better jobs. She is wonderful in how she brings each person out so it's easy to figure out who's talking and who they may be speaking about.
I you like the Imp series then you will very much like this off shoot. It has the same witty banter, quick action, and will have you laughing and talking to the characters soon after you start listening.
Don't get why the change in characteristics of amber from the original series. I find quite a bit through out the story I was getting annoyed at how she reacted to situations. It pretty much made the story unlikable
Hollie Jackson did an awesome job with narration,unfortunately the story was mildly (and I do mean MILDLY)interesting.Bit of a snoozer,got bored with it but listened through to the end.
"what was this"
Nothing like the imp series. I was bored to death . I skipped a bunch of chapters just to be done with this.
First off I love the Imp series so I had to read this. The story was ok, overall liked it. The feelings\beliefs of the main character were repeated constantly and that got annoying. It got good at the end but it was a little slow to get there. Not as much humour as the imp series. Narrator was ok but would probably be better if there was more humour\personality to the characters. I'll listen to the next one but i hope the next one gets better.
"So very slow and boring..."
I honestly can't say if it was the narration or the story its self. Terrible narrator and nothing I can think of could have helped. Ugh
No, I can already see she is not my type of author.
Maybe better narrator and rewrite add real sexiness. Hello she's a succubus,,
I wish there was a better way to know if your buying a book with what level of smexiness!!
