Overview

Paisley Nichols is drawn into a dark world of demons, witches, and mages after a magical attack leaves her near death. The man who's been stalking her is a mage with a tenuous hold on sanity. Iskander, her smoking hot landlord, is the demon who saved her life. As she copes with her new abilities and the threat she represents to magic-using humans, she can't help but see Iskander with new eyes. He's sexy, uninhibited, and sinfully handsome, but there's also an undeniable emotional connection between them. First he's in her arms, then her bed, and, before long, her heart.

Keep the human woman alive. Those are Iskander's orders after the attack on his tenant leaves her with abilities that can save his kind from unimaginable suffering. When it comes to human women, Paisley is his physical ideal, and he's all about finding out how far she'd like to go, no strings attached and all boundaries ignored. Except she's everything he's ever wanted in a partner, in bed and out. Now he has two jobs: keep her alive and convince her she's the only woman for him.

My Dangerous Pleasure is Book 4 in the My Immortals Series, set in a world where demons are real and the people who use magic to protect innocent humans aren't always in the right.

Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times - Jill Smith
An unlucky human female becomes the focus of the next battle in the ongoing war between the Magekind and Fiends. Expert storyteller Jewel excels at developing rich and intriguing characters who face challenges of the most dangerous kind. Packed with the right dose of danger and treachery, this love story is the perfect escape from reality.
Fresh Fiction - Diane Troldahl
I enjoyed Jewel's ability to create complex and unusual characters. Even the bad guy has a few redeeming qualities, and you are never quite sure even those who fight on the 'positive' side are purely good. Further developments in plot lines started in earlier books reward faithful readers without confusing the issue for first timers. The romance that forms between Iskander and Paisley is handled well, with the intense love scenes not rushed but in perfect pace with the rest of the book.
Heroes and Heartbreakers - Laurie Gold


What stands out most after reading My Dangerous Pleasure, fourth in Carolyn Jewel's Immortal series, is this: The hero, while totally the alpha male you'd expect a demon to be, is also incredibly sweet to the heroine, a human with latent magic being threatened by a mage.

    Is there magic in love or love in the magic?

    Paisley Nichols is a creative genius in her bakery but not so great at picking out the right man for herself. Rasmus was the one she thought might work out but he turned into a stalking nightmare when she called it off. He went so far as to scorch her apartment and that is how she found herself living with her landlord, Iskander Philippikos.

    Iskander is a complete package of genuine concern and affection rolled up into a body that is fit for a God. Paisley knows he loves her cooking and desires her body but she is beginning to question whether he is completely all man. After her encounter with Rasmus it seems Paisley can hear screaming in her head of voices she cannot figure out where they are coming from. She cannot figure out what is wrong until she accidently uses her unknown magic in front of Iskander who then provides the answers to who she is and what she can do.

    Paisley's power is key to the Mage in the Kingdom of Nikodmus as he and his group fight off the evil that is trying to assume power by taking the souls of those they kill. Paisley can free these souls and remove the power but she has no idea where to go with this new-found power or the feelings she has for Iskander. He is an amazing, passionate man that has taken her to new levels of pleasure but do they have the stuff that will keep them together, or is this just another fling for Iskander?

    While the forces on the dark side try to control Paisley and her power she learns how to manifest her skills and not only take down the evil but also clear her heart for the possibility that love may be there for her with Iskander.

    This series is so well written you flow from one book to the next without ever losing your place or asking - who are these people? Carolyn Jewel knows how to make the paranormal side mingle with the romantic part so that the books are well developed and the characters ones you want to read more about.

    My Dangerous Pleasure

    Carolyn Jewel's My Immortal series gets better and better with each book. Iskander's story was no exception. A great (and sexy!) pairing between the snarky loner Iskander and Paisley. The story is intense, a bit dark (like most of the series), with bits of humor and one-liners. We meet Fen again (Iskander's blood twin) and of course the mage Rasmus in all his bad guy glory. Excellent addition to the series.

    I admit it. I am hooked on author Carolyn Jewel. She has developed a series that is so believable you truly think it is real. Her characters are so true to themselves you wish you were part of the story. She has it down to a science with her mix of Demons, Witches, Kin and Mages. Life is not easy for any of them but Nicodemus is able to keep his crew under control. Paisley and Iskander have their chance in this story to work out their problems. They manage to have the understanding and patience for a good life. If you are into reading the Paranormal please give this series a try. You won't be sorry!

    Demons are a girl's best friend!

    My Dangerous Pleasure surprised me in so many ways - and I fell in love with Paisley and Iskander before I even knew where we were going story-wise! Forget all those vampire lovers, I have discovered that demons can be a girl's best friend! Once you had demons, no other paranormal will ever be quite as sparkly.

    I loved the chemistry between Iskander and Paisley - and it is always adorable to watch a die-hard rake find himself unsure how to proceed with a woman he has fallen wildly in love with. How does he convince her that his heart is hers? How does he woo her when she is too busy with worrying about a crazy stalker who obliterated her apartment? Is there even time to shower her with love when her life starts to become a series of death traps? Poor, poor Iskander.

    It had been a little difficult to unravel the world that My Dangerous Pleasure lived in, but I had such a good time with our main couple that it was well worth the trouble! Carolyn Jewel has dreamed up such a sexy world full of magic, demons, and mob-like politics that I wouldn't mind diving back into. Furthermore, I did not realize My Dangerous Pleasure was Book 4 until I started to prep this review. Which is really good news because that means I have 3 more books to read without waiting for their releases - and find out more about the characters who made an appearance here!

    a demon of a man

    Paisley has worked hard to build up her own business, a bakery which is beginning to turn a profit and grow after only two years. Life is quiet and consists of work until a seemingly benign customer turns out to be a stalking psycopath and demon. She must rely on her generous landlord, as her world is turned upside down by both the existences of magic and the demon who haunts her day and night.
