Carnal Magic

by Lila Dubois

Vampires AND Faeries? Gimme! I loved this book. Lila Dubois kicks off her new erotic paranormal series The Wraith Accords with Carnal Magic. I was enthralled by the two paranormal worlds she’s woven together. The Tuatha de Danann and the Vampire Cabals have held to an agreement of peace for 200 years… but something has gone wrong.

Isabel is sent as an ambassador for the vampires to the fae kingdom to discover what has caused the accords to break down. Aed is the warrior assigned as her guide. I fell hard for these two. They are both strong and fierce and immediately drawn to each other. Their love scenes are erotically delicious but more than that I enjoyed seeing them open up and be vulnerable with each other… learn to trust.

Isabel has a history of being used and taken advantage of and though she’s taken back her power and become a force to be reckoned with as a vampire she has baggage. Aed is a good man, a defender, but he is accustomed to being a second class citizen among his people. Both of them find a first class partner and lover in each other.  They have to work through the politics and intrigue threatening their races and the misunderstandings and enemies threatening their relationship.

A few of my fav lines.

There was something savage and desperate in his face. No one had ever looked at her like that. As if the world would end if she were in pain. 

She brushed his hair behind his ear so she had an unobstructed view of his blue, blue eyes. ” I see you, Aed.”

“You’re the only one who ever has.”


Pick up Lila Dubois’ Carnal Magic and get swept away by intrigue and passion of The Wraith Accords and the love and lust of two people who need each other. I raced through this story in one sitting. I want the sequel. I need to know what happens next… I also want to catch up with Isabel and Aed cause I could use more of them too.

“What if the one you wanted more than any other was the only one you couldn’t trust?”

“The Wraith Accords, Book 1”

Two hundred years after the Tuatha de Danann and Vampires formed a fragile alliance, the Wraith Accords are unraveling. Isabel Santiago is a leader in one of the most powerful of the vampire cabals, and she agrees to join the Fae court as a gesture of goodwill-and damage control.

While Aed mac Goll’s loyalty to Fae is absolute, he’s never supported the accords which gave the Vampires sanctuary and restored the Tuatha de’s link to humanity. The very idea he could desire an undead human is unthinkable, yet he’s drawn to Isabel’s dark beauty and fierce intelligence.

Despite their mutual mistrust, they soon find themselves lost in a dangerous game of lust and power. When the treaty shatters amid calls for Isabel’s head, Aed realizes their connection is more than physical. And to save it, they’ll have to unravel a mystery that’s been a thousand years in the making.

Warning: Contains sex, violence, magic and bloodlust. You know, the good stuff.
