The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

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.

My thoughts:

Wow! This was an amazing book, I devoured it, staying up much too late to read at night. I'm such a huge fan of the paranormal genre, this book sucked me in right away. The character's were so well developed, I felt as though I knew all of them. 

I adore Callie, she's so smart with that romantic side I love in my mc's.  The progression of her as a person was interesting to watch. In the beginning she was more closed off, lost in the pages of the books she read. She's exposed to a world she had always believed to not be real, and took it all in stride. She's visited at night by a dream lover, who makes all others pale in comparison.

One by one, the people in her life are revealed to be more than what they are. She is more than what she thought she was. It was a blast to watch it all unfold.

I don't want to give away too much, because you all need to read this one. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series!!!
