I gasped . . . or tried to. My mouth opened, but I
couldn’t draw breath. . . . His lips, pearly wet, parted and
he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight.
When I exhaled he sucked in my breath and his weight turned
from cold marble into warm living
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 writing her
bestselling book, The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers.
After all, Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of
lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she
finds 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: He’s 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 incubus, Callie must accomplish
something infinitely more difficult—banishing this demon
lover from her heart.
