About My Dangerous Pleasure
TEMPT THE DARKNESS Strong-willed and independent, Paisley Nichols is used to taking care of herself. But when an insane mage begins tracking her every move and threatening her at every turn, she has no choice but to put her life in the hands of a demon.
RISK THE PASSION Burned by betrayal, demon assassin Iskander won’t get too close to anyone. He spends his days serving his warlord and his nights indulging in carnal pleasures…and that’s exactly how he likes it. But when a mage wages a wrenching psychic assault on his beautiful tenant Paisley, Iskander must defend her. Under his protection, she will be drawn irresistibly into his life and learn about her own mysterious powers. And not a moment too soon. The mage haunting her isn’t acting alone—and he won’t rest until he destroys both Paisley and Iskander.

What They're Saying
Romantic Times- 4 Stars
An unlucky human female becomes the focus of the next battle in the ongoing war between the Magekind and Fiends. Expert storyteller Jewel excels at developing rich and intriguing characters who face challenges of the most dangerous kind. Packed with the right dose of danger and treachery, this love story is the perfect escape from reality.
Reviewed By: Jill M. Smith
I enjoyed Jewel's ability to create complex and unusual characters. Even the bad guy has a few redeeming qualities, and you are never quite sure even those who fight on the 'positive' side are purely good. MY DANGEROUS PLEASURE is Book Four in Carolyn Jewel's My Immortals series and a solid continuation from the previous entries. Further developments in plot lines started in earlier books reward faithful readers without confusing the issue for first timers. The plot in book four is cleverly constructed, with a surprise ending. The romance that forms between Iskander and Paisley is handled well, with the intense love scenes not rushed but in perfect pace with the rest of the book.
Diana Troldahl Fresh Fiction
This is the fourth installment in Ms. Jewel's My Immortal series. This is a story about two people who have been hurt by love before. Ms. Jewel brings these amazing characters to life. She is able to blend the two different worlds together with ease. There is enough action and romance to balance the story out. The characters are interesting, even the villains. Ms. Jewel's My Immortal series should be on everyone's reading list. She is an auto buy for me.
Robin, Nightowl Reviews
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 the drill. Iskander, Jewel's hero, fulfills the slutty part of the equation, but even though he never planned any sort of involvement with Paisley Nichols, he brings no pissed off, sullen, or I'm-the-boss-of-you attitude into their relationship.
