"The Wraith Accords, Book 1"
Two hundred years after the Tuatha de Danann and Vampires formed a fragile alliance, the Wraith Accords are unraveling. Isabel Santiago is a leader in one of the most powerful of the vampire cabals, and she agrees to join the Fae court as a gesture of goodwill-and damage control.
While Aed mac Goll's loyalty to Fae is absolute, he's never supported the accords which gave the Vampires sanctuary and restored the Tuatha de's link to humanity. The very idea he could desire an undead human is unthinkable, yet he's drawn to Isabel's dark beauty and fierce intelligence.
Despite their mutual mistrust, they soon find themselves lost in a dangerous game of lust and power. When the treaty shatters amid calls for Isabel's head, Aed realizes their connection is more than physical. And to save it, they'll have to unravel a mystery that's been a thousand years in the making.
Warning: Contains sex, violence, magic and bloodlust. You know, the good stuff.
Finally! FINALLY off of my book hangover thanks to Lila Dubois! The synopsis of Carnal Magic teases and hints to some sexy scenes between Aed and Isabel and Lila does not disappoint!
This book isn’t just about some really hot stuff going on between a vampire and a fae though… there is a much deeper plot behind the scenes.
It was very interesting the way Isabel is introduced in the story. She is all vampire but in fae territory so she realizes she is very vulnerable. Being a vampire she is not one to let these silly fae get in her way of ensuring the alliance is upheld and strengthened but it is surprising to see how these fae act.
Aed sounds like a god! It’s no wonder Isabel is taken with him so suddenly. It’s a wonder how faes must react to each other since Aed is barely glanced at and finds it ridiculous when Isabel compliments him. Faith in his looks notwithstanding, he is the epitome of a Knight in Shining Armor and is set to protect Isabel, as is his duty.
These two are formidable! The tension, not just from the lust but from their separate loyalties hangs in the air constantly leaving them unsure of each other. I loved that these two are so strong and yet they make a striking juxtaposition to each other, as any reader would assume being that they are vampire and fae. SO different and yet so strong and conscious of their duties to their families.
