I begin my day by announcing that I'm reading Demon Lover by Juliet Dark/Carol Goodman. Juliet Dark is Carol Goodman's pen name. Fancy schmancy... J/K. Actually this novel has gotten rave reviews from a lot of my friends on Goodreads.com. I really value the opinion of my Goodreads friends, even if they differ from my own. The exchange of ideas is what makes reading fun and exciting. Reading is a different experience for all who enjoy it and engulf themselves in the fictional (nonfictional) world. This novel seems to cover a host of genre's such as paranormal, romance, and fantasy. If that proves true this read will not be my normal suspense/thriller set. I look forward to this being a great novel. Once I am done with The Demon Lover, I will begin next week with The Water Witch which is next in the Fairwick series.
Synopsis: Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of her having written the bestselling book The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she’s found herself at Fairwick’s renowned folklore department, living in a once-stately Victorian house that, at first sight, seemed to call her name.
But Callie soon realizes that her dreams are alarmingly real. She has a demon lover—an incubus—and he will seduce her, pleasure her, and eventually suck the very life from her. Then Callie makes another startling discovery: Her incubus is not the only mythical creature in Fairwick. As the tenured witches of the college and the resident fairies in the surrounding woods prepare to cast out the demon, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this supernatural lover from her heart.
