My Dangerous Pleasure

Romance Paranormal | Romance Erotica Sensual

Paisley Nichols is living her dream working hard in her own bakery. A handsome man, Rasmus Kessler, comes in and asks her to have coffee with him, and turns into a dangerous stalker. Not your ordinary stalker, mind you. His slightest touch makes her ill, her male workers are threatened, and worst of all he somehow keeps any of the cops from taking him seriously. Paisley's laid-back, hot, and genial surfer-boy landlord Iskander steps in and protects her when the stalker, a mage, decimates everything in her apartment.

Iskander (a demon) has kept his heart and feelings safe behind iron walls since his blood bond was broken by Fen. She chose to join Rasmus, threatening Iskander's sanity as well as her own, uncaring of the consequences. Although his body found many hours of solace in those of human females, he never thought his heart would be engaged. But Paisley is different. Something about the evil touch of Rasmus has triggered latent talent and something about her vulnerability and refusal to back down has hooked her right into his heart.

I enjoyed Jewel's ability to create complex and unusual characters. Even the bad guy has a few redeeming qualities, and you are never quite sure even those who fight on the 'positive' side are purely good. MY DANGEROUS PLEASURE is Book Four in Carolyn Jewel's My Immortals series and a solid continuation from the previous entries. Further developments in plot lines started in earlier books reward faithful readers without confusing the issue for first timers. The plot in book four is cleverly constructed, with a surprise ending. The romance that forms between Iskander and Paisley is handled well, with the intense love scenes not rushed but in perfect pace with the rest of the book.

Jewel's website contains information on her other series as well as a short story that fits between books three and four of the My Immortals series:
