This second in Mead's Succubus series, though not as good as the first, is entertaining. The storyline involving her co-worker is imaginative and enjoyable to read. Alas, the outcome is disappointingly predictable.

When an old incubus friend, Bastien, visits succubus Georgina he explains that his job is to bring down a radio hostess who promotes family values -- and he needs Georgina to pose as his sister. Meanwhile, back at the bookstore where Georgina works, her friend and co-worker Doug and the members of his band are being unrealistically successful. Then there's her nonsexual relationship with Seth to deal with. All this, and Georgina must keep things running smoothly at the bookstore. This just proves that there is no rest for the wicked!
