Recommends it for: paranomal romance fans
This is the fourth book in Carolyn Jewel's Immortal Assassin series. It's a paranormal series involving kin aka demons, mages, witches and humans. It's a dark and sensuous world where the mages and witches are the bad guys, although there are some that use the magic for good. You see, mages and witches enslave the kin in which they are used as bodyguards, assassins, and other nefarious activities. Kin are also sacraficed to prolong the life of mages and/or witches. It's incredibly useful to read ...more

When his 'vanilla' human tenant, bakery owner Paisley Nichols, comes under magical attack from an enemy of the Kin, demon Iskander finds finds his forbidden desires are making him want to do more than just protect the woman he brings into his home. And as Paisley discovers the hidden world populated by demons and the mages who enslaved them, she comes to trust Iskander with more than just her life.

I really liked this newest entry to Jewel's series, and even though the starring pair aren't enemie

Rereading the series getting ready for Kynan's book.

Loved the story, Iskander is one of my top fave demons of this wonderful series. If I had on small complaint to make, it would be that the Iskander in this story has changed from past books. The Demon with some serious issues throughout the series has been demoted to a very bad boy here. Still, I loved him and the book.

This is the fourth in the Witches series. Mages, witches, demons, fiends, hot male bodies, oh yeah!

There is a nice Glossary before the story. I really love it when authors do this when they have created a new mythos or world. And being new to this series, it was especially helpful. I was a little concerned about not having read the first three books when I was asked to review this. Because of the way the story is written, had I not known this was a part of a series, I wouldn't have guessed. The

It took me a while to get into this book. In fact, I almost put it down, which I something I never do. But I'm so glad that I didn't. It got better in a big way.

My Dangerous Pleasure is book four in Carolyn Jewel's Witches series and I have not read the first three installments in the series. And believe me, I felt my ignorance in the beginning. The world building wasn't too hard to pick up on, but there was clearly a lot of backstory on the supernatural characters that the author tried to compr

I received this as an ARC through NetGalley from the publisher.

I have to admit that although I've read some of Carolyn Jewel's historical romances (and REALLY enjoyed them), this was the first paranormal of hers that I have read, and I kinda jumped in halfway through the series, which wasn't such a smart move. I think if I'd read the others first then some of my comments below would be obsolete.

This was essentially a really engaging romance, which used the paranormal elements very well, and yet

Re-read on April 2015. Binge reading all the series again. A note on those links, BamaGal left GR some time ago. Her Hyde didn't pick up her slack....Link is broken. *grin*

The sweetest of the four My Immortals books and the only one that really needs to be read in order. If you don't know the backstory (Fen and Isk's past and meaning of their bond), it will be difficult to understand motivation and plot.

And given this series is very much character driven, you'll miss a lot.

Paisley Nichols had every reason to be content. Her fledgling bakery was doing well, she was finally starting to see a profit and the good looking blonde guy who came in for coffee every morning was showing some interest in her. When he asks her to go out and innocently touches her wrist, Paisley is overcome with pain and fire flashes through her body leaving a blister. Rasmus Kessler is more than just a gorgeous man, he is a mage who needs Paisley's latent powers, and also wants to use her to g ...more

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. H

Is there magic in love or love in the magic?

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 landl

Another amazing book from Carolyn Jewel in her "Witches" series. I was so thrilled when I got this book from NetGalley!! This book series was recommended to me by a friend of mine who owns a used bookstore. She told me I had to read them - that they were the type of books you couldn't put down. Boy was she right!! I devoured the first two books in a day and a half, and went hunting for more by Carolyn Jewel!

Iskander and Paisley have quite the chemistry. She is the quiet tenant and bakery owner h

Notes: I read the ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of this book The book comes out on May 31st, and I added it to my list of most anticipated releases of May. Also, language was used which some may find inappropriate.

Paisley Nichols is the girl next store type. She owns a bakery and is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. When a regular customer at the bakery she owns asks her out, she says yes. That was a big mistake. Little did she know that this seemingly innocent event would change her life,

Heroes & Heartbreakers
What stands out most after reading My Dangerous Pleasure, fourth in Carolyn Jewel's Immortal series, is this: The hero, while totally the alpha male you'd expect a demon to be, is also incredibly sweet to the heroine, a human with latent magic being threatened by a mage.

The typical urban fantasy/urban fantasy romance hero is usually pretty slutty, with a bad-ass attitude to match. He's generally pulled into helping/saving/working with the heroine, often begrudgingly, and...yada, yada, you know t

My Dangerous Pleasure adalah buku pertama Carolyn Jewel yang aku baca. Dan berhubung aku langsung baca #4, aku jadi kurang paham ceritanya. Sepertinya cerita tentang Fen dan Iskander sudah ada dari buku #1. Jadi aku gak bisa cerita banyak tentang kenapa si Iskander bersumpah sama si Nikodemus. Heheheheheh...

Kalau yang aku tangkap, ceritanya ini dulu si Iskander mengikat darah dengan Fen, tapi Fen malah mengkhianatinya. Dengan bantuan Nikodemus dan Carson, Iskander berhasil memutuskan hubungannya

Laurielu Bona Fide Reflections
My Dangerous Pleasure (Witches #4) by Carolyn Jewel lends a wonderful take on demons in that they are not the evil re-incarnate that many books relate. In this story, Paisley Nichols who is a “vanilla” human builds a caring relationship with the demon Iskander. The beginning of the story allows the couple to build a platonic, caring relationship affinity where they both appreciate each others strengths. This type of relating is new to Iskander since he was a rake and fairly recently out of a bin ...more

I absolutely adored this book. This was the fist book I have read in this series and I must go and get the first 3! You can read this as a stand alone, but throughout the story, the interactions with the other characters will make you want to know more about them. Which is why I will be reading the other books before this one.

Iskander & Paisly were a hit for me right off. He is so wonderfully adorable and irresistible. She is an independent, strong and charming woman. Paisly is being stalke

Recommends it for: lovers of hot sexy PNR
A GYN once told me that libido has less to do with your body than your mind (as if they work separately) so apparently the cure for a low libido would be this book! If this book were a sex toy, it would know where the g spot is and what to do with it and have a a robotic tongue. Aside from having interesting characters (hot and with personalities) and a plot with a couple of major twists this book is evidence that Jewel's writing of intimate scenes has gotten even better than the last of her boo ...more

Review: 3.5 out of 5

Paisley Nichols owns & runs a Bakery and lives a seemingly normal life, she has had no interest in dating since her last relationship failed until a handsome customer enters her shop and her interest is piqued, what she doesn’t know is he is a powerful mage who has somehow transmitted some magic into her, igniting her own powers and then obsessively begins to stalk her.

A very big thank you to both the Goodreads First Reads program and the author for giving me a copy of this book. Thank you!

My Dangerous Pleasure is the fourth in a series of stand alone novels all set in Jewel's magical world of mages/witches and demons where magic is lurking around every corner in the everyday lives of ordinary people. The story starts with Paisley (Yes, I know terrible name. Sadly it is only one of many throughout this novel), a bakery store owner meeting this SUPEROMGHOT yet

I have to say, I love connecting with other authors on Twitter. Ms. Jewel was kind enough to send out some of her books to eager readers via a Twitter giveaway. I anxiously waited by the mailbox for my package! I've read both My Immortal Assassin, and My Dangerous Pleasure.

I need to rewind and get the first two books of this series. I didn't realize that there were other books until I was well into this one, and I wasn't about to stop.=)That is a pet peeve of mine (not to begin with the first bo

This is a review of an ARC-- this title is scheduled to be released on June 1, 2011.

This book was my introduction to Jewel's Witches series. I didn't feel that reading the first three books in the series was necessary to enjoy this one. And enjoy it, I did! Paisley seemed like a plunky heroine and Iskander was totally irresistible. Their romance comes about quickly when they are somewhat thrown together in a dangerous situation, but this is to be expected in books in this genre.

There are a few

Favorite Lines: ”She knew it in her soul. Rasmus Kessler had found out where she lived, and the very last part of her life that belonged to her was about to go to hell.” (p.27 -eArc)<.b>

My Dangerous Pleasure is book four in Carolyn Jewel’s My Immortal series. I think this is a seriously overlooked series, but I understand that it’s not for everyone. The sex it racy and daunting to those who have issues with sex between people of different species. I think the books are highly entertaining

Wish I'd Been In On This Series Sooner

Bakery owner and pastry chef Paisley Nichols is used to having little to no social life. After a bad breakup a while ago, she hasn't been all that keen to dip her toes back into the dating waters, and even if she had been, the insanity that is the work schedule of a bakery owner/chef wouldn't give her much wiggle room to do so. Still, one of her regulars had caught her eye, and she was weighing the options of asking the gorgeous man out every

I received this book free from NetGalley, but my review is my own.

I really enjoyed this book. It follows the story of Paisley Nichols, who owns a cafe/bakery. One of her regular customer touches her wrist and suddenly her whole life changes. The man in question, Rasmus Kessler is not human - he's a mage, but Paisley knows nothing about the world of mages and demons. However after her flat is completely incinerated, her landlord Iskander helps her out. Iskander, however, is a demon and knows of R
