All he's asking for is her soul.
That house. You know the one. It's the one that seems alive from the road, the one that watches you, the one that seems to always be for sale, the one Anna Worthington has wanted to live in since childhood. Ghost stories be damned.
But the dark being that haunts this house is something far more sinister than a ghost. Luc is an ancient incubus, trapped by a 50-year-old curse, and Anna is a temptation too sweet for any demon, let alone a practically starved and crazy one. Will she exorcise her house and live happily ever after with her cats, or will she fall prey to a dark lover who doesn't just want her body, but her soul as well?
If the demon has his way, dying will be her best case scenario.

"Great read and listen.."
Wow! I loved this book. Oh, it didn’t have to be 300 pages but at least it didn’t become too boring, I only skimmed a few pages. It was about an incubus living in the house Anna bought, a house she’d wanted to live since she was a child. At first Anna thought it was the ghost of Beatrice, the woman who’d died there fifty years ago. But it was Luc. And, oh man was he gorgeous and sexy. This is my very first book of an incubus and I so enjoyed it. Luc was a demon/incubus that started feeling guilty over all the women he’d drained and killed when he fed from them. Then, when Anna moved into the house and found out who and what Luc was she went from being scared to death of him to wanting him but refusing to go to bed with him.
I gotta tell ya’, my favorite part of the whole book was when Anna went out to find Luc someone to feed on, as long as he promised he wouldn’t kill them. And she brought him his own Harem of Hookers: Maria, Karen, Susan, Olivia and Renee. And, trust me when I tell you those girls couldn’t have been happier. And they all became good friends and had the best sex ever. Ordinarily I don’t like OW but with him being an incubus there really had to be. But all the while he really only wanted Anna. But it was feed or die.
I liked the other players, too: Tam, Bitsy and Mimi. Didn’t like Cain, though. He really was evil.
There was some other excitement, too. Like when the five pimps showed up to take their girls back. That didn’t turn out well for the pimps.
And when Cain set the house on fire, rather hypnotized Anna into it. A big ‘ol house filled with antiques burned to the ground. Luc was very protective of those antiques, too.
Anyway, Luc and Anna did have a HEA but the end was certainly amazing.
They also had some explicit sex and Anna got herself off a couple of time, if you know what I mean. And the F-bomb was used 29 times.
As to the narration: Chet Williamson did a very good job, considering this was narrated in 2012. His women’s voices could have been a little better but they weren’t so bad as to ruin the book. I would definitely listen to him again.
