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 . 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.
My thoughts: Callie is a woman who is new to the small up state New York.
She is plagued in her dreams by a demon, this demon comes to you while you are sleeping. It wrecks havoc with your world. Are you dreaming or are you awake? He makes love to the woman in her dreams, makes her wanting more and more. She has no idea how to fight him off and no clue that she even wants to. The idea of this makes me sick, it's like being raped by your dreams.
She soon finds that some of her towns people have the power to help set her free from this evil. Witches, fae, and vampires quite the bunch.
This book is quite graphic and when I first got it I thought it was for teens/YA, but found that it is set in the Romance department. I should also state that it is a slow start and seems to take forever to get there, but it does and it blows the door wide open.
My rating: 3 stars
