Overview

All I haunt for christmas is you . . .

Joe Bascombe is no stranger to desire, but when a sexy spirit begins haunting his dreams, he finds himself ensnared by dark passions. What he doesn't realize is that the devious demon and her two sisters, otherwise known as the Three Fates, are out to teach the woman he loves a lesson . . .

Unwilling psychic Nicki Styx survived a near-death experience to find herself able to see and hear the dead, but she only has eyes for Joe. Together they've conquered evil spirits, saved lost souls, and beaten back the Devil himself, but they're about to learn that there are more things in Heaven and Hell than they ever imagined. As far as Nicki is concerned, Joe is the man of her dreams, but now they're at the mercy of the creature who's invaded his.

It'll be a Christmas to remember . . . and it could be Joe and Nicki's last.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ever since she almost died—rejected by the afterlife, so to speak—vintage fashion store owner Nicki Styx has been able to see the dead. Generally they want her help, which usually lands Nicki and her understanding boyfriend, Dr. Joe Bascombe, in hot water. But Nicki has interfered once too often, and three vindictive spirits, the ancient, relentless Three Fates, are out to punish her. One of them, a seductive succubus, plans to ensnare Joe through mind-bending erotic dreams. VERDICT The fourth entry in Garey's award-winning Nicki Styx series, this sultry, upbeat urban fantasy puts a new twist on visitations by Christmas ghosts and is just the thing for readers who want their holiday fare with a darker edge. Garey (You're the One That I Haunt) won a RITA® Award for the series opener, Dead Girls Are Easy; she lives in Florida.

    My least Fav in the series

    This was my least favorite in the series. I just go to the point where I couldn't stand Joe one more minute. His reaction to the "woman he loves" when she tells him what is happening is all wrong. He believed some pretty crazy stuff in the past but seems to brush over this like it's an every day thing. I had to finish the series, but it didn't make me like it anymore, except the very end. Then things were ok again.

    Must Read!!

    With every one of Ms Garey's book that I read I proclaim this is my favorite one, only to read the next one and have it become my favorite. But, honestly if I am going to nit pick and I am, I would say get rid of Joe and bring in someone else. I DO NOT LIKE JOE!!! Yes Nicki loves Joe, and Joe supposedly loves Joe but I just don't get the vibe.

    I love the chemistry between Nicki and pretty much all of the characters and she takes her lot in life as well as can be expected. I totally get how she feels and she is funny in how she does this.

    I have the newest Terri Garey book in my Nook waiting to be read, and I almost don't want to read it because I don't want to have to wait for the next one. But, I will.


    As a closing note, read it, read it, read it!!

    Best for Last...

    My Review:
    Whew! This was a tough book, but absolutely fantastic. Serious issues for Nicki & Joe in this one which made it so hard to read. Heartbreak. Frustration. Disillusionment. Both Nicki & Joe run the whole gamut of emotions in this book, as Joe is the one dealing with temptation and for the first time in the series, questioning Nicki and what she's telling him as truth.

    Poor Joe has had to deal with some crazy things in this series so far, but his faith to Nicki has been unwavering. Not so in this book. There is a woman after Joe in this book that has a score to settle with Nicki. Nicki knows that she's not human, but Joe doesn't believe her and every time they are together, they wind up fighting about her.

    To complicate matters, Sammy shows up again and this time Nicki is hurt and disillusioned. She doesn't have as much strenght to resist his allure especially when it seems as if he is actually trying to help her.

    I really liked that the final book in this series really went back to focus on the relationship between Nicki & Joe. Even though they are having issues, I love these two together. Joe is just such an all-around great guy. He's grown to be such a fun character over the course of the series. He settles Nicki and anchors her when life gets crazy...which it does...a LOT!

    Overall, I have loved this series. It's been fun and quirky and a fabulous read for something different. I still adore Sammy and loved that in the end, he truly earned that adoration. I hope that someday Terri Garey will be able to write his HEA, but he is the Devil, so hmmm....

    Another one hit out of the park

    I have loved all of the books in the series this one isnt any different. I was yelling at Nicki trying to help her see what she was missing. Hope the other books will continue to be just as good as the earlier ones in this series.

    This is a humorous lighthearted urban fantasy

    Psychic Nicki Styx and her lover ER Dr. Joe Bacombe hope for a quiet Christmas together as each has had their fill of demons, spirits, and possessions. However, neither get what they want most as this holiday season is paranormally insane for even this pair used to psychopathic visitors from the Dark.

    Joe is under a nocturnal sexual assault from Selene the succubus abetted by her Fate sisters; their plan is to get at Nicki through her beloved. Nicki has her own problems dealing with a spirit who committed suicide and her son who make demands on the psychic. Finally as all hell breaks loose, the devil pays Nikki a courtesy call.

    This is a humorous lighthearted urban fantasy as Joe probably has to believe in the Nazareth tune Love Hurts since he is an easy victim of possession by feisty paranormal females (YOU'RE THE ONE THAT I HAUNT); before he met Nicki A MATCH MADE IN HELL was metaphysical. Spirited and "Scrooged" while not yet thirty Nicki is terrific as she battles the latest visitors who assault her and her beloved while she should hum the Charlie Daniels Band's The Devil Went Down to Georgia to fiddle with the heroine.
