Selected by Sarah Broadhurst

Dr Callie McFay travels to the small college town of Fairwick in New York State for a job interview. Despite it being her second choice she finds herself talked into accepting a job offer from the Folklore Department to teach a class on demons and vampires. She also finds herself drawn to an old house in the woods where Gothic novelist Dahlia LaMotte used to live and buys it on a whim, despite the seeming reluctance of the estate agent to sell it to her. But on the night of her job interview, she had a very vivid erotic dream about a man made out of shadows and moonlight, and this dream becomes a regular occurrence when she moves into her new home. Callie starts to feel like a heroine in one of the gothic novels she teaches as slowly it dawns on her that things at the college - and in her home - are not what they seem.   She learns that her house is supposed to be haunted by LaMotte's former lover and her new - and rather strange - colleagues tell her an unfamiliar fairy tale about an incubus-demon with a human past who was enchanted by a fairy queen...

Synopsis

Incubus by Carol Goodman

Reviews

Hopelessly addictive...definitely the season's guilty pleasure Time Out Incubus is a fabulous mixture of classic Gothic themes, paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Hugely enjoyable and highly recommended, Incubus gets the Fairwick Chronicles off to a great start - leaving this reviewer already looking forward to the next instalment of this series www.lovevampires.com successfully bringing together a welcome injection of gothic mystery back into a supernatural romance story. I very much enjoyed reading this book and without a doubt can say that Goodman's Fairwick Chronicles have a lot of potential for future reading Fantasy Book Review Love the Twilight series? Then read Carol Goodman's new vampire thriller, Incubus Stylist This is a wonderfully clever and inventive tale of magic, yet still contemporary and believable. The author's subtle yet very effective use of foreshadowing keeps the reader engaged, and the surprising ending has a lovely dose of bittersweet romance and a good dash of optimism Romantic Times
