Review: Body Temperature and Rising (Lakeland Heatwave #1) by K.D. Grace

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Can the power of lust overcome deadly intentions? A voyeuristic encounter on the fells ends in sex with a charming ghost for American Marie Warren who realises she has the ability to unleash demons. Her powers bring her to a coven of witches who practise rare sex magic that allows ghosts access to pleasures of the flesh.

As ancient grudges unfold, Deacon, the demon Marie has unleashed will stop at nothing to destroy everything the coven’s high priestess holds dear, including Marie and her landlord, Tim Meriwether. Only the power of lust Marie and Tim share can stop Deacon before the coven is destroyed and innocent people die?
My Thoughts: The title of this book is pretty darn indicative of what you're going to get when you read it. For the love of all things steamy, this is one HOT read. Now, before you read any further, I should let it be known that I have a bit of a kink when it comes to paranormal, ghostly sex. As in, I enjoy figuring out how a non-corporeal being is going to manage to have dirty, sweaty sex with a living person. What? It's all about the journey, right? And this journey was both hot and fun.

K.D. Grace has laid some nice groundwork for future books with her interesting coven of sex magic witches. Without giving too much away I'm very curious to see how Tim deals with certain issues and if the connection Marie has with her ghostly lover deepens and becomes more permanent. As for the bad guy, Deacon is the kind of guy you love to hate. He's just vile. Vile and horrible and probably a big downer at parties. I mean, unless it's a demon sex party. In that case, he's probably the guy they all love to invite.

Steamy, sexy and some other words that start with S and mean hot things, Body Temperature and Rising is definitely a wild ride. If you don't like the sexy, stay out of the sex coven.
