The man of her dreams might be the cause of her nightmares.
Six months ago, Abby Sinclair was struggling to pick up the pieces of her shattered life. Now, she has an enchanted iPod, a miniature unicorn living in her underwear drawer, and a magical marketplace to manage. But despite her growing knowledge of the OtherWorld, Abby isn’t at all prepared for Brystion, the dark, mysterious, and sexy-as- sin incubus searching for his sister, convinced Abby has the key to the succubus’s whereabouts. Abby has enough problems without having this seductive shape-shifter literally invade her dreams to get information. But when her Faery boss and some of her friends vanish, as well, Abby and Brystion must form an uneasy alliance. As she is sucked deeper and deeper into this perilous world of faeries, angels, and daemons, Abby realizes her life is in as much danger as her heart—and there’s no one she can trust to save her.

My thoughts:
I thought it would be UF but considering the sexual tension and the smexing I am proclaiming this to be...UFPNR. 

I came into a world as confused as Abby was, but she just put up a better front and slowly I understood what she was involved in. But I will not tell you that, since that will spoil the plot. She is tough, snarky and damaged. But I like her and anyone who can put up with a horny little unicorn is good to me. 

Then we have the love interest, Brystion who oozes sex, well duh, he is an incubus. He will ride those dreams until you beg for more. What can I say, I am a sucker for dark and sexy. Together these two are sizzling. 

As for the story there is the hunt for his sister, Abby's boss and figuring out what the heck is going on in town. All while dealing with your friendly neighborhood incubus and having wet dreams about said demon. 

It was a fun ride and I think I liked the end the best, why..well beats me. There was just a lot of tension and I sure like that.



  1. UFPNR? Now I'm confused but I think you just invented a new genre!

  2. A "horny little unicorn"...<-lol, thats a first!
    I do enjoy tension in the romance.
