Waiting on Wednesday - The Demon Lover by Juliet Dark

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine,  that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is

To be honest, I'm not even certain of where I first heard of this title.  It certainly sounds interesting and being the cover snob that I am, I truly am diggin' this one!

Summary (by Goodreads)
I gasped . . . or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. . . . His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked in my breath and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh.
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 writing her bestselling book, The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. After all, Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why she finds 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: He’s 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 incubus, Callie must accomplish something infinitely more difficult—banishing this demon lover from her heart.

Be forewarned, the nature of this title is from the romance/supernatural genre rather than YA.  It may not be appropriate for younger readers.


  1. Oh, interesting... you didn't pick a YA book this week! I'm really intrigued by The Demon Lover too, so I'm sure I'll be finding myself getting a closer look at the book once it's released. :)

  2. Thanks Liz...yeah, I'm usually all over the YA titles but this one seemed rather I need MORE books to read! hahahaha!!
