Having been a fantasy lover since my teens, I was not bothered by her eclectic writing style, crazy angles and multiple characters. I loved the interesting and varied elements. I fell in love with the incubus, wondered about who the baddies were, and generally thought it was a fun romp.

What I did not like were the constant inconsistencies: Imagine a professor being stupid enough to allow a undergraduate to catalog erotica in their house - and the dean of the college agreeing to it! Callie's immature ability to set boundaries and limits, and the obvious conclusions of the various dramas swirling through it are tiring, although not a deal breaker. The fact that Dark basically eliminates Callie's familiar for one third of the book is bizarre, though. The rule of the smoking gun is a hard limit for me. Use it or cut it. I disliked that she introduced a completely new character to do the dirty work - unconnected to anything else in the story. Reintroducing the three women and appearance of the manacles for immediate use without much explanation or context was jarring. Given her undeveloped connections to them, and the mixed evidence presented, I simply don't believe that her even going through the motions of sending her lover to a permanent hell, without more thought, is all that believable.

So here I am frustrated and grouchy - kind of like after being with a date who leads you on all night and then says he suddenly has to go home without even kissing you goodnight. If this book were a man he would have a lot of 'splainin' to do, as Ricky Ricardo would say. At the end, Callie falls completely out of character. Dark already firmly established that she would be neither mature nor heartless enough to endure knowing he is in terrible pain, possibly for eternity, especially if it could be due to her own actions. It is clear by the final scene she is in love with this creature and knows he has a true heart, as she stands by the door with the key to release him hanging from her neck. There is less than nothing to support the idea that she would walk calmly back toward the house.

Honestly, it feels like her editors decided the book was too long and told her to make it into two or three - but she didn't have the skill and they didn't have the back bone to help her rework the story line to accommodate it. The book is terribly marred by this. Yes, I will read the sequel if I notice when it comes out. For all its flaws I did think it was worth reading.

In the meantime, I say: Get on it, Dark, and don't disappoint me again.

Wonderful finish to the trilogy

Reading this was like reading a season of Charmed scripts, Harry Potter, and Katherine Woodiwiss novels all rolled into one. It made for a light, quick read that held my interest from start to finish. If you like stories about mystical creatures, a little mystery, and the stream of Gothic bodice rippers this should be right up your alley.

Definitely a good read! keeps you interested and hoping for the storyline to uncover a fairytale ending.
In the same lines as the Trilogy of souls, if you're a fan, I advise for it!

I had high expectations for The Demon Lover. Juliet Dark is a pseudonym for an author I really enjoy: Carol Goodman. It might have been my high expectation that made this book fall flat. The overall plot is intriguing enough, but it gets lost somewhere in the details.

The Demon Lover is about Callie, a college professor, who is visited by a "demon lover." It delves into the discovery of the demon lover, the mysterious circumstances at her college in upstate New York, and other magical/mythical themes.

I may just be overloaded with the magical settings (think Twilight, Harry Potter, Discovery of Witches, etc.), but this book just didn't seem to grasp my fictional attention like the others did. I like Carol Goodman's brand of literary suspense and I wish this book had kept up with what she does well. Her characters are usually so well-developed, but I found this book had too many to keep up with to really get involved. I don't often struggle to finish a book, but this one was a fight to the finish. It pains me to say so, but I just didn't enjoy this book.

I just re-read the Fairwick trilogy this summer. The story holds up. Carol Goodman has a rare talent for developing a rich setting, deep mythology and beautiful story. You can't go wrong with anything that she has written.

(3.5 stars) This is the first book in a series (Fairwick) by author Carol Goodman, under the pseudonym Juliet Dark and it falls into the fantasy romance category, quite different from her other work. Callie is looking at teaching positions, hoping to land something in NYC, where she and her boyfriend, finishing grad school on the west coast, hope to end up. She interviews at a small town school in upstate NY (Fairwick) and is intrigued by the folklore department and by the cottage of one of her favorite authors Dahlia LaMotte which contains a collection of her notes and papers. She takes the position, much to her grandmother's dislike. What Callie finds is that this place is far more magical that she ever could have expected, starting with a visitation from an incubus in Dahlia's cottage which she has impulsively purchased. She finds that many of the faculty and residents have magical abilities or are faerie creatures. Things begin to go wrong when they try to get rid of the incubus, and Callie must confront her own heritage. This was a little uneven, but had an intriguing premise and has some promise going forward, despite some of the unusual bends in the storyline, particularly at the end.
This is like nothing I've ever read before. From page one I was pulled in. I mean, how could I not? A dark and handsome incubus appears by the light of the moon to ravish women and give them mind blowing orgasms! <fans face>

The Demon Lover is so much more than an adult fantasy or romance novel, though.

Something very peculiar is going on in Fairwick, NY. Fantastical, often weather related, occurrences besiege the town and campus. Creatures hide in plain sight, some in human form. Someone, or something, is sucking the life force out of students and even faculty. One student is doomed by a decades old curse. Can it be broken?

I absolutely adored this novel! I wasn't expecting it to be a series so it came as a bonus to learn that book two, The Water Witch, releases NEXT month. Can't wait!

Demon Lover goes on my favorite read's list.
