Marie Warren's life changes forever when she has an erotic encounter that ends in sex with a charming ghost on the Lakeland Fells, unleashing an inner power to summon demons and ghosts...
In this erotic story, Marie is lead to a coven of witches who practice rare sex magic. Seduced by their supernatural abilities, she embarks on a journey that bridges the gap between this world and the next, offering those who have passed on the opportunity to enjoy physical pleasure again.
One fateful experience leads to a grudge-filled demon named Deacon being granted access to the physical realm. A power struggle between good and evil ensues as Deacon tries to destroy everything dear to the High Priestess, including Marie and her young landlord, farmer Tim Meriwether.
Only the powers unleashed by Marie and Tim's unbridled lust and passion can stop Deacon's bloody rampage before the coven is torn apart and innocent people die. But is lust enough?

My temperature has risen

This full-length paranormal and erotic novel had me gripped from beginning to end as I devoured this book like my favourite choccy bar!
The storyline completely took me by surprise. I thought how can you make a sexy erotic book work about ghosts, would it be similar to the Entity back in the early 80s. I was a little worried it may be too corny. Oh my, how wrong could I be!
I had only read a few short stories from K D Grace before so I was so looking forward to reading a full novel from her, especially her latest book.
Body Temperature and Rising is the first in a trilogy from this new Heatwave series. I adore supernatural and murder mysteries and K D has covered my favourite genres in one book. Just brilliant.
I really don't want to give too much away but I can't sing the praises of this book without giving a little away, just a little teaser.
The whole story is set in the stunning British countryside of the Lake District, one of the most beautiful places on earth for me, so immediately from KD's perfect descriptions the book felt familiar having been there myself.
From chapter 1, a highly erotic encounter with a sexy ghost changes Marie Warren's life forever after discovering she has supernatural powers.
Confused and scared, Marie meets a coven of witches who become her guides where she and Tim Meriwether, her landlord, find they both have a lot in common.
The story follows both of them learning to handle their new powers and having to defeat a demon called Deacon who Marie accidentally unleashed into this living world. The coven knows Deacon well and are fully aware of how evil and dangerous he is as he roams the fells.
Deacon reeks death and fear as he is expertly brought to life in our imaginations by K D by her easy to read, beautifully written storyline. So Tim, Marie and their new supernatural powers have to face their fears as they try to stop Deacon as he tries to stop them.
There are a lot of hot scenes that are all completely relevant and K D Grace makes every encounter sexy and exciting and it's never "just another sex scene". You can actually feel the sexual tension. Steamy sex in caves on the fells... hell yes it's every girl's dream and fantasy, isn't it?
This is honestly one of the best books I've read and I don't say that lightly. I'm so excited and I cant wait for the next 2 books. It is going to drive me crazy till then, but this book gives you a teaser of a small chapter of the next book coming out in October. I can't wait.
This beautifully written novel and a great mix of good plot and steaminess makes this a great start to the trilogy. I never realised you could write such a great novel mixing both supernatural and erotica without it being corny. I loved every page!
Warning: make sure you have hours to spare as you can't put this book down.
- Paranormal and erotica combined, a brilliant combination from K D Grace.
- Bottom line
- An incredibly erotic sexy read that you won't be able to put down.

One of the worst books I have ever read
Reviewed: 07 May 2012 by Renesme, a Going Steady Straight Female
I was really looking forward to this after reading many positive reviews and reading other books by the same author. Was I ever so wrong?
The plot is ridiculous - ghost riders are live people who can shag ghosts and everyone in this book, living or dead, shags everyone in every possible combination. Sounds great you think? But no! It is not erotic, it is uninspired writing with repetitive descriptions in sex scenes.
The characters are not built upon at all. They remain two dimensional all the way through and I didn't care a bit what happened to them. I really struggled to finish this book as I wanted to give it a fair review. It was mind-numbingly tedious and the sex scenes were just ridiculous.
I understand that when you read fiction it is to escape from reality and sometimes you need to suspend judgement on plot lines. However this book neither engaged or aroused me and I will not be bothering with the other books in the trilogy.
A bitter disappointment.
- Awful plot, repetitive erotic description and two dimensional characters.
- Bottom line
- Dire. Do not waste your money.
