This full length paranormal and erotic novel had me gripped from beginning to end, I started to read a few pages into the book a few weeks ago and then life got in the way and I was chomping at the bit to read some more, finally last night I read the rest of the book from cover to cover.
The storyline completely took me by surprise, I thought how can you make a sexy erotic book work about ghosts, would it be similar to the Entity back in the early 80's, I was a little worried it may be too corny...oh my....how wrong could I be.....!
I had only read a few short stories from KD Grace before; so I was so looking forward to reading a full novel from her; especially her latest book.
Body Temperature and Rising is the first in a trilogy from this NEW Heatwave series. I adore supernatural and murder mysteries and KD has covered my favourite genres into 1 book...just brilliant.
I really don't want to give too much away but I cant sing the praises of this book without giving a little away, just a little teaser.
The whole story is set in the stunning British countryside of the lake district, one of the most beautiful places on earth for me, so immediately from KD's perfect descriptions the book felt familiar having been there myself.
From chapter 1 a highly erotic encounter with a sexy ghost changes Marie Warren's life forever after discovering she has supernatural powers.
Confused and scared Marie meets a Coven of witches who become her guides where she and Tim Meriwether her landlord find they both have alot in common. The story follows both of them learning to handle their new powers and having to defeat a demon called Deacon who Marie accidentally unleashed into this living world. The Coven knows Deacon well and are fully aware of how evil and dangerous he is as he roams the fells.
Deacon reeks death and fear as he is expertly brought to life in our imaginations by KD; by her easy to read, beautifully written storyline. So Tim, Marie and their new supernatural powers have to face their fears as they try to stop Deacon as he tries to stop them.
There are alot of hot scenes that are all completely relevant and KD Grace makes every encounter sexy and exciting and its never "just another sex scene". You can actually feel the sexual tension...or maybe that is real...well how can it not.. steamy sex in caves on the fells...hell yes its every girls dream and fantasy....isnt it..?
This is honestly one of the best books Ive read and I dont say that lightly. I'm so excited and I cant wait for the next 2 books, its going to drive me crazy till then, but this book gives you a teaser of a small chapter of the next book coming out in October.. I cant wait.
This beautifully written novel and a great mix of good plot and steaminess makes this a great start to the trilogy; I never realised you could write such a great novel mixing both supernatural and erotica without it being corny; I loved every page!
Warning; make sure you have hours to spare as you cant put this book down.
