Carnal Magic by Lila DuBois

Her assignment was to infiltrate the Fae court.

Isabel Santiago leads one of the most powerful vampire cabals. Brilliant and beautiful, she is chosen for a dangerous assignment--ambassador to the Fae court, on a mission to strengthen the fragile alliance between the Tuatha de Danann and Vampires.

His assignment was to guard the vampire ambassador.

Aed mac Goll's loyalty to Fae is absolute. A warrior and protector, he's never supported the Wraith Accords, which gave Vampires sanctuary in Fae and restored the Tuatha de's link to humanity.

They were never meant to fall in love.

Aed and Isabel have nothing in common, but that does nothing to mute their sudden, powerful attraction for one another. When the accords shatter amid calls for Isabel's head, Aed realizes their connection is more than physical. For the first time he finds his loyalties torn, and himself on the run with a vampire. To save each other, and protect the future of both their peoples, they'll have to unravel a mystery that's been a thousand years in the making.

This book grabbed me from the start and didn't let go until the last sentence. It's a story about the Vampires and the Tuathe de Danaan aka the Fae; it's also a love story between 2 people that shouldn't be attracted to each other. This book is full of danger and Isabel the emissary for the Vampire to the Fae people is thick.

I could not put this book down! The story, the writing, the characters are all first rate. I have a girl crush on Isabel, who is smart, sexy, and kickass; and Aed...adore him! These characters have wonderful chemistry and a blazing passion for each other. There's intrigue, danger, and steamy romance in this page turning story. I hope we haven't seen the last of Isabel and Aed because I loved them and I simply can't wait for the next book in this riveting series

Lila Dubois is a brilliant storyteller as shown in Carnal Magic. The world and character building Lila presents to the reader in Carnal Magic is detailed and progresses the storyline with ease. Carnal Magic is superbly balanced with political intrigue, action packed scenes, witty dialog, and erotic romance between the strong, feisty, intelligent Isabel and Aed, the honorable warrior hero with loyalty to the one he loves. Carnal Magic is a page turner and fantastic start to the Wraith Accords series.

Oh my. I absolutely loved this book! It is so like other books of Lila's that I have read but oh so different too. I love the Fae world that she has created and all the fabulous characters including Vampires and faeries. So while the location is different from most of the author's works, the well-developed characters that I completely identify with; the hot alpha males who want to protect their mates (albeit a warrior this time); the smart, self-sufficient alpha females who find that they do on fact need a partner in their life; the hot, hot, hot sex scenes that also include witty conversation and interaction. Aed and Isabel are so great together and I just loved reading their story. I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy of this book and you need to read it too, right away!

For those who love myth and magic, a world of Vampires and Fae, this is a must read. Once again Lila takes us into a new world and hypnotizes us with passion and intrigue. Carnal Magic is the first in the series, and I can't wait for the next. Isabel and Aed are on opposite sides, yet drawn to each other. They both have honor and a need to protect their people, but can they also protect their hearts? Lila has given us a strong, intelligent and powerful woman and a man of strength and honor that I for one couldn't help but fall in love with.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the contemporary books of this author, but for some reason, I've not read any of her paranormal romance books. I'm totally kicking myself for that now! This book was absolutely amazing, completely unlike anything I've read before. (And I've read many different types of PNR, from vampires that are aliens, to different types of ware-animals, to mermen, nothing has been off limits!) This particular story, is a book about Vampires, and the mythical Fair folk of Irish legend, the Tuatha de Danaan! Isabel is a powerful, high ranking, ancient vampire, who has come to Tara, the land of the Tuatha de Danaan, to assure that the Wraith Accords still stand true. The Wraith Accords are a mutually beneficial agreement between the two races, agreed upon hundreds of years before, that protected them all. Right from the beginning, she knows that things are not what they seem, and approaches it like a puzzle to be solved. With the help of Aed, the warrior assigned to her, (I'm not sure if it was to protect her, or to protect them from her, in the beginning!) Isabel sets out to unravel the happenings, endeavoring to protect the Wraith Accords, at all cost. This book begins with a bit of background, and proceeds with the beginning of Isabel's visit to Tara. With a judicious use of bits and pieces of folk lore and fairy tales, the author builds a story that branches out into one of the most inventive romance stories I've read in a very long time! Isabel and Aed are drawn to each other, but are also pulled apart by their obvious differences, by happenings beyond their control, and by some crazy royal intrigue! There was so much going on in this story that I could not have put the book down, even if I'd wanted to! This is one of those books that I couldn't wait to see what happened at the end, but didn't want it to be over, at the same time! If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would!

Carnal Magic (Wraith Accords #1) by Lila Dubois Isabel Santiago, the Vampire Sage of Bucharest, arrives at the Fae court. She hopes to help ensure the continued success of the Wraith Accords, an alliance formed between the Vampires and the Tuatha de Danann.     Fianna warrior, Aed mac Goll, is assigned to protect Isabel while she is at court.  They find themselves attracted to each other, a dangerous situation for them both. I enjoyed Isabel’s cunning personality.  She is quick-witted and smart.  She is highly practiced in the art of politics.  I liked that she possessed the skills to survive the Fae court but not sink to the level of some of the Tuatha de Danann.    I love that Aed is fiercely loyal.  He will protect the Tuatha de Danann even from themselves.  I appreciate that he is strong both mentally and physically, and that he is willing to admit his mistakes. Lila Dubois does a great job describing the environments and reactions of the characters.  She has created a believable world that I truly enjoyed. Carnal Magic is an intriguing and entertaining novel.  I liked the combination of Vampires and Fae, although allies, neither faction trusts the other. This makes the story all the more interesting.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Nocturnal Nymph - Michelle: *Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review This is a vampire/fae story like I haven't read before. This is my first book by Lila Dubois and I am very glad I was able to read this one. Lila was able to draw me into a great story and made me feel like I was a part of it and I love when a book does that! Sexy, intriguing and such a different take on vampire/fae love. There was mystery and lots of history to the different realms, but I wasn't so much history that you were bored, you wanted more! Isabel is the type of strong heroine that I like in books of this genre, and Aed was a great fit for her. All in all I really liked this book and I give it 4 skulls.

~ 5 Carnal Magic Stars ~ Spellbinding Read Carnal Magic book one in The Wraith Accords series by Lila Dubois is a spellbinding paranormal romance. Mrs. Dubois pulled me into her magical world of the Fae and Vampire’s. I was blown away by the mystery and breathtaking description of the world.  Isabel is a strong women and very knowledgeable. That knowledge and ability to play the political games help’s her. Aed mac Goll was the perfect counter part to Isabel. This is my first experience reading Lila Dubois and all I can say is WOW. Ms. Dubois is very descriptive of the world and characters that at times I felt like I was really their. I could picture everything so clearly. Once I started I could not put this book down, even when the main couple hooked up on the first day of meeting it did not put me off. They had amazing chemistry and their flirtatious talk helped the romance too bloom and grow. The romance came second to the mystery that is taking place. I found myself drawn to the mystery that surrounded Isabel and Aed mac Goll as they fought their growing feelings and battled an enemy they could not see. I enjoyed the twist of the Vampire and Fae love.  Carnal Magic is an exceptional read. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. Everything about it peaked my interests and took me on a fabulous adventure. Bye the end I was wanting more and can’t wait to pick up another book in this series. Defiantly worth picking up especially if you enjoy a good mystery with your paranormal.  Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy free of charge from the author with the sole purpose of an honest review.
