Continuing with the theme of "Hot Summer Reads", I chose The Demon Lover. At the time of the review hadn't realized that this book was going to be a series. Apparently the 2nd and 3rd book are published. If I ever get some room to read something off my TBR list, I'll give the 2nd book a try. On another note, I do really like this cover art. It's really eye catching.

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.
Disclaimer: I received this book as a galley courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
The author tied up many loose ends and left me with a satisfied feeling at the close of the book. Even with a sense of closure there were still some newly created situations at the end of the book that could be expanded on further should Ms. Dark want to turn this into a series.
