Must Read Monday: The Arcane

I must admit, I don't have any author's releasing again until February. My New Years Resolution was to find balance between work and pleasure. With this in mind, I decided to search through Breathless Press' site to find a book that I wanted to read out of sheer pleasure. What I found, was this...
Summoned to earth by a witch demon prince Adame must survive and return to his own world in time to battle for his throne...but that means leaving his witch behind.

Roseline hasn't had the best of luck with magick. When she accidentally summons a demon prince to earth, things spiral out of control. Her coven wants to banish him, his rival sends assassins to kill him, his brothers are hunting him, and she has to figure out how to send him back where he belongs in time to battle his sadistic cousin for the throne. The last thing she expects is to fall in love with him.

Adame, enraged at being summoned and enslaved by a witch just days before the tournament for the throne of the underworld, finds himself falling in love with the witch. Though he doesn't want to leave her, he knows he must. The fate of both planes hangs in the balance.

First of all, look at that cover. Is that not the most interesting cover you have ever seen? Yeah, it caught my attention instantly. I sat down with high expectations...I was not disappointed. I read this book in one sitting, I kid you not!

Now, I will warn you, the pacing is a little fast. It isn't as detailed and languorous as I would have liked, but it wasn't the sex fest I feared it would be either. I loved that. The heroine didn't go, "Oh, sexy demon prince!" and jump into bed with him. YAY for realism. If you want a quick, enthralling read that makes you hope for a sequel, I highly suggest this read. ~ D.
