Overview

If you like Buffy the Vampire Slayer or the Twilight series, you’ll love Zoe Winters’ paranormal romance series.

Gothic romance bestseller.

Save My Soul: The Preternaturals, Book 2

...All he’s asking for is her soul.

That house. You know the one. It’s the one that seems alive from the road with windows like eyes that see inside 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 fifty-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.


Zoe Winters’ Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Series: The Preternaturals

Enter a world of dark desire and dark magic where today’s hero is tomorrow’s villain... or vice versa. Unleashed passions between unlikely lovers rage against the backdrop of a world of conflict and infighting among the secret factions of the preternatural underworld.

Are you the villain if you’ve got good reasons? Are you the hero just because we’re rooting for you? Tormented alphas, charismatic and ruthless leaders, and the women torn and trapped between them, forced into situations they never should have had to face.

Amidst a world of ignorant humans, the demons (true immortals), vampires, and therians (shapeshifters) fight to keep their territories. The only humans aware of this world are the magic users: witches, wizards, and sorcerers who enjoy the ability to mix with the humans or the monsters depending on what suits their current purposes.

If the preternatural world is discovered and war breaks out, the humans have a chance... IF the magic users choose to cast their fate with their own kind. Magic combined with technology would even the playing field more than the monsters are comfortable with.

Dark Lovers you’ll meet in this series:

Cain: He’s an incubus dream boat, physically, but it’s nearly impossible to keep up with his body count. Any woman who comes to his bed is likely never to leave... at least not alive. But what happens when he meets a woman with a true death wish, the one meal he discovers he doesn’t want to kill?

Anthony: The vampire king. Cold, ruthless, undead, and hard to like. Yet, all it takes is one human with amnesia, to soften his heart. More than anything, he wants to return to a time when Charlotte saw him for the man he is, instead of the monster she’s discovered. Ever since being bitten, she hasn’t been the same. It soon becomes clear that the only way to protect a fragile human is if she’s claimed. Meanwhile, his deepest wish is to have his lover awakened from the memory loss that took everything... not just the memories he meant to erase.

Cole: Alpha of one of the strongest werewolf packs in North America. His moral compass goes askew when he finds the woman fated to be his, and he can’t resist kidnapping her. With the life of abuse she’s suffered at the hands of the vampires, it might be a welcome rescue. But the werewolves have a worse reputation than the vampires, a fact that doesn’t inspire much trust. Not your classic sweet werewolf love story. But being an alpha’s mate brings with it a safety and security Jane has never known.

Dayne: A powerful sorcerer whose dark past is littered with the bodies of therians. Is his reputation based more in truth or legend? Why would he protect a werecat when he seems so adept at killing them?

If you like Zoe Winters you may also enjoy H.P. Mallory, Larissa Ione, and J.R. Ward.

Editorial Reviews

Paranormal Muse - Rebecca Foote
Save My Soul is probably my favorite book from Preternaturals Series
Succubus.net - Tera S
four pitchforks out of five
Mrs. Giggles Reviews - Mrs. Giggles
This story isn't a typical sex-filled romp featuring randy alpha males and Buffy clones.

...the relationship works well, mostly because Ms Winters doesn't try to force her characters to conform to typical romance character code of conduct. Instead, the romance flows along its own unorthodox currents, and there is a raw and honest "Yeah, we're both screwed up, that's why we're good together!" vibe to the romance that makes it work.

    A fun, sexually charged novel chuck full of captivating supernatural creatures!

    After her father passes away, Anna Worthington moves into the house that she has been drawn to since a child. Claimed to be haunted by the ghost of a woman who died in the house fifty years ago, Anna doesn't believe in the supernatural until the supposed ghost takes form in a dark and sexy incubus named Luc.
    Cursed by a witch and trapped in the house Luc must feed off the residents or have his meals brought to him by the incubus leader, Cain, but being surrounded by humans has brought the humanity out in him. Feeling more human then demon now, Luc falls hard for the spunky Anna but can he convince her that their love is worth more then her soul and the house that she has dreamed of since childhood?

    Save my Soul is the second novel in Zoe Winter's Preternatural series and my first read from this author. It was a great stand-alone and I did not feel that I was missing anything in jumping right into the second installment in this series.

    Packed with mass amounts of sexual tension and danger Save my Soul was captivating with a plot that continuously flowed quickly and smoothly. Each character was endearing and well devloped, along with the world built around them. Anna was a feisty, smart and independent protagonist who sticks to her morals and sense of right and wrong throughout the story. Luc is possessive and protective, a great alpha male to fall for despite being a soul-sucking incubus. He tugged at your heart and had me rooting for him throughout the story. The story line was fresh and unique, full of action, humor, suspense and intrigue, and numerous supernatural characters that kept it interesting.


    A great read and I look forward to reading more from this fabulous author!

    It started off promising but then...

    In the beginning i thought oh! This is kinda interesting especially since i dont like incubus books, wasnt aware this was one when i dowloaded it. I saw the word FREE and the decision to read this was made. But anyways Anna was so ANNOYING! I mean she was killing the story for me, i literally liked everybody except her and that does include the prostitutes. I didnt like the constant back and forth fighting and bickering between anna and luc. It wasnt sexy. It was frustrating. Ive never heard the word snark or snarky before and clearly the author was a fan of the word but different races say different things so whatever - but it was still a corny word lol..anyways the author lost my enthusium and interest half way thru the book. Anna was just to irritating for a lonely young girl who got her heart broken by a dude who im sure showed signs of not commiting and its like get over it! either get with luc or dont care and stop the back and forth already ugh smh so annoying this book gets a thumbs down for lack of a decent herione.

    Very Good At first when I ordered this book I had no idea it in

    Very Good

    At first when I ordered this book I had no idea it involved Demons.  If I had been aware of that I definitely wou
    ld not have bought it, but I am glad I dd.  It started off pretty well.  The character Ann decided to buy the hous
    e she was drawn to as a child.  I dont want to give anything away so I will stop at that.  I enjoyed the different characters involved.  It was very humerous at times.  I will say I got a little bored in the middle of the book but then it picked up and got very exciting.  I wasnt expecting the ending.  What a twist.  I should have guessed it but the book was not predictable like some stories are.  Definitely worth reading.  Now I am going to read her third book, Catalyst.

    Sweet Demon

    I am still new to the demon world and this story was a good way to get them on my good side. Luc is such a sweet demon if demons can be sweet that I found him as irresistible as the main character, Anna.

    I should also mention that the demon focus was on an incubus.

    ooo, and there is a cool twist in the end that I liked to this paranormal romance.

    Wow! Great Story. Great characters. Great snarky writing. Can I have more?

    I really enjoyed the infusion of humor in the dialog. Naturally the story was hot too, but what set it apart was the fun and the orginality of the incubus.

    Great paranormal romance!

    I have to admit that I was first drawn to the book because of the cover. There was just something about it that made me want to read it. Now that I've read it, I have to say that the characters on the cover are a perfect fit! In this book, we have Anna - a strongly, independent woman who is buying a house that she has dreamt about since she was a child. We also have Luc - an incubus trapped inside of the home because of a curse.


    With the fact that Luc is a demon who feeds off of sex, you would think that the whole book would be erotic - but really it's not. In fact, Anna and Luc take a frustratingly long time to get together. There is however, a lot of sexual tension. Anna is very stubborn and determined to get Luc out of her house, no matter how attracted she is to him.


    I loved seeing Anna interact with the "ghost". There were a lot of humorous moments. This was one of my favorite lines:

    "She'd be damned if some freaky sex demon was going to screw up her Barbie Dream House."


    I didn't really like Luc all that much at first. He just seemed like an overconfident prick. After awhile though, he softened and became much more likable. He had a lot of redeeming qualities - even though he did need a harem of women. I also really liked the banter between these two characters.

    There was a big twist toward the end that I didn't know what to think of. One one hand, it was clever - but part of me just wasn't happy with it. Overall, I thought this book was really good and I'd recommend it to any adult fan of paranormal romance. Zoe Winters is an author that I will be trying more of!

    A haunting read you will devour!

    After many long years and the death of her father, Anna Worthington has returned to her hometown down South to set her father's affairs in order. After seeing her dream home up for sale, Anna decides to purchase it despite all the rumors of it being haunted. Anna happily moves into her new home and soon starts to realize the town's rumors might not be rumors after all. Her dream house comes with it's own sexy incubus named Luc that has been trapped in the house for over fifty years by an awful curse. Anna is instantly attracted to the smart mouthed Luc but is determined to find a way to get him out of her house and out of her life, in her attempts to "exorcise" the incubus she'll learn it's no mere coincidence she's bought this house. Anna holds the key in breaking Luc's curse but the price for his freedom is something she's not willing to pay. The beginning of this book was such a surprise! I don't scare easily but I must admit I wanted to sleep with the nightlight on after reading the first few chapters of this book, luckily it got less creepy the more I read and I was able to sleep with the lights out (haha). That being said, I found this to be an intriguing read. I want to say this is my first paranormal romance with an incubus and I found the concept very original. The author's writing style of mixing humor and mystery pulls you in and keeps your interest until the final page. Anna and Luc are fun and lovable characters. The sexual tension between these two is first class! The slow build of their relationship gives you a better look inside the characters and their emotions. I loved that Anna isn't a "loner" heroine and has a best friend that sticks by her in good times and bad. The secondary characters are just as entertaining and add a little spice to the plot. There are plenty of twists and turns that keep you engaged and reveal a climactic ending! Save My Soul is a heartwarming love story with memorable characters that is brilliantly written. I love a book with an unpredictable ending and this was just that. It's a top notch paranormal romance with the best of elements: mystery, steamy romance and great humor! A must-read in my book, trust me, you won't be disappointed. Although second in the series, Save My Soul can be read as a stand-alone without a problem.

    A fun find!

    A fun romp in an old southern house. Had a great cast of characters and a interesting story line. Not as much sex as I would have expected, given the paranormal storyline, but I think that would have been too much. Those scenes were well integrated into the plot and not thrown in just for the hell of it. Also appreciated that there was something left something to the imagination and didn't spell everything out in graphic sexual detail. Then again, I'm a gay guy, so the lack of detail may be an issue for others. Hope to read more by this author!
