Green Eyed Demon
The clock is ticking for Sabina Kane. With her sister taken by mysterious captors, the Dark Races on the brink of war and a sinister order manipulating everyone behind the scenes, she's really got her work cut out. Using information provided by an unlikely ally, Sabina and her trusty sidekicks - the sexy mage Adam Lazarus and Giguhl, the Mischief demon - head to New Orleans to begin the hunt for her sister. Once there, they must contend with belligerent werewolves, magic-wielding vampires and, perhaps most frightening of all, humans. But before Sabina can save those she cares about, she's got to save herself from the ghosts of her former life. Because the past is haunting her. Literally.
Blue Blooded Vamp
Sabina Kane is on the hunt. Her prey is Cain, father of the vampire race and the madman whose obsession with the goddess Lilith fuels his murderous plots. Armed with the name of a sect of dark historians who know the location of Cain's lair, Sabina sets out for Italy. But she finds much more than she bargained for when the leader of the sect turns out to be someone who shouldn't be alive, much less leading a band of militant academics. But she doesn't have time for shock or arguing with her obstinate ally, because it's going to take every weapon - both mundane and magical - to win the fight of her life.

Georgina isn’t sure which is worse—that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses. Still, there are distractions. Georgina’s roommate, Roman, is cluttering her apartment with sexual tension. Then there’s Simone, the new succubus in town, who’s intent on corrupting Seth. But the real danger lies in the mysterious force that’s visiting her thoughts, trying to draw her into a dark, otherworldly realm. Sooner or later, Georgina knows she’ll be too weak to resist. And when that happens, she’ll discover who she can trust, who she can’t—and that Hell is far from the worst place to spend eternity… Praise for Richelle Mead and her Succubus series. . . "This is one of those series I'm going to keep following." --Jim Butcher, New York Times bestselling author "The mix of supernatural mystery, romance, and reluctant succubus is great fun." --Locus "Mead cooks up an appetizing debut that blends romantic suspense with a fresh twist on the paranormal." –Booklist
