As soon as I received the review request for Incubus, I knew I had to accept.
Why? Because the cover had me at ‘hello’.
Ever since moving to Fairwick to take up a teaching post at the local college, Callie has been having vivid, erotic dreams about a man made out of moonlight and shadows. Dreams she begins to fear as as well as anticipate.
She learns that her home — a Victorian cottage at the edge of a wood — is supposedly haunted. And then her new and rather strange colleagues tell her a local legend about an incubus demon with a human past who was enchanted by a fairy queen….

I’ve never heard of Carol Goodman before. Apparently she is the author of a number of highly acclaimed, prize winning psychological thrillers such as The Lake of Dead Languages. Incubus will be the first in her Fairwick Chronicles series, and from the blurb seems like a promising guilty pleasure.
In any case I’ve been hungry for some good old escapist fiction recently, so fingers crossed this book delivers! I’m going to start reading this one tomorrow and will get a review up in the next couple weeks. Hooray!
