Overview

She'll give into a demon's protection... and his passion.

Paisley Nichols knows how to take care of herself, but when an insane mage nearly kills her and looks to finish the job, the only person she can trust is her sexy, uninhibited landlord who just happens to be a demon.

Demon assassin Iskander has been burned by betrayal. He keeps humans at a distance, except for nights he spends swept up in carnal pleasure. When Iskander is ordered to keep "the human woman alive", it turns out his tenant is everything he's ever wanted in a partner, in bed and out.

As Paisley develops magical abilities that can save Iskander's kind from unimaginable suffering, the pair must face off the bloodthirsty mage and come to terms with their growing, undeniable passion.

My Dangerous Pleasure is the fourth book in the My Immortals saga, a series of paranormal romance books set in a world of demons, magic, and a wide swath of moral grey area. If you like steamy romances, conniving villains, and explosive chemistry, then you'll love Carolyn Jewel's sizzling paranormal adventure.

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.

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.

When I received My Dangerous Pleasures, I didn't think I'd like it. Turns out I was wrong. To start, I really liked the point of view being told from both Iskander and Paisley's point of view. Also, there seemed to be something thrown in there from the good doctor, which I think may be something that will happen in a future book? Anyways, on to the review.Paisley owns her own pastry shop that sells coffee, lunch, and (of course) pastries. She has found that a frequent shopper has caught her eye and decides she wants to date him. Later that evening, she becomes extremely ill (possibly to the point of death), and we are then introduced to Iskander, her landlord. Iskander is not all that meets the eye. Sure, he has a tattoo on his face the size of Texas, but that's not all. He's actually a demon. He saves Paisley from her death that was caused by his own wards on his home. But, she doesn't remember anything from this night, other than being deathly ill. In the coming months, she is stalked by this frequent patron, and ends up moving in with her landlord when everything in her apartment is relegated to dust. Romance ensues, as well as Paisley changing in more ways than one.One thing that had me a bit confused was the same question everyone who met her posed "What have you done, Iskander?" If there is another book on them, maybe that will be answered. It doesn't seem evident on her face that something has happened, but something between them has happened that has caused more than a few to question what it is. In the end, I really enjoyed this book and it's ending.

Let me start by saying that I am not, in general, a paranormal reader. I am, however, a huge fan of Carolyn Jewel's historicals, so when I had the chance to get this book as an ARC for review, I snatched it up.For me, the book started slowly and I was worried I wouldn't get into it. The language was nowhere near as lush as her historicals and there was a great deal of "nuts and bolts" stuff about how the world worked and who was who and what was what. That's my only real quibble with the book, and it's one I know is a matter of taste. I prefer to be tossed into the ocean of a fantasy world and have to sort of figure it out as I go, but lots of people prefer to have things explained.About 1/3 of the way in, though, when everything about the world had been delineated, the story really picked up and from then on I couldn't put it down. Stayed up way past my bedtime reading! The romance is excellent and you can really understand how these two characters could come to care for each other. (In the beginning, the constant references to physical attraction annoyed me, but I think that was a function of my general irritability with the "explanation" of things at the start.) Neither character's strength diminishes the other's, which can be tricky to achieve. In fact, I may have to read the others in this series even though, as I said, I'm not really a paranormal person in general.

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!

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!
