From Author Carolyn Jewel
My Darkest Passion is book 5 in the My Immortals series.
Addison O’Henry has no idea magic is real or that the fragile peace between the magekind—humans who can use magic—and demons is about to shatter. All that changes the day she’s abducted by one of the magekind. After a ritual murder goes horribly wrong, Addison ends up with demon-sourced magic that nearly kills her. But for the intervention of demon Harsh Marit, she might not have survived. Though Harsh does what he can to help her return to what used to be normal, they both know her life will never be the same.
With corrupt mages threatening them both, her honor requires her to help Harsh and the demon warlord he serves. If that means accepting her power and the high rank it confers on her, so be it. Now her once distant relationship with Harsh turns hot and immediate as the two of them explore the dark passion of a forbidden relationship.

And here’s a Dear Author comment from cbjackson about the book:
AJH, I know you’re unlikely to double-dip on an author, but man, I would love to hear your take on Jewel’s most recent paranormal romance, My Darkest Passion. I’ve already raved about it hear and elsewhere, but it’s a fairly remarkable book. It goes where angels fear to tread in terms of romance plots and the heroine is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
From Author Ana Blaze
Beth Chase is too busy planning perfect weddings to worry about the lack of action in her own love life. But if she was looking for a man, she wouldn’t be looking at Colin Pratt. Her boss swears that Best Man Colin is a quiet scholar and science fiction writer who couldn’t possibly cause a fuss at his own brother’s wedding. He’s clearly never met the man in question.
Snarky, sexy and more than a little inebriated, Colin is the final obstacle between Beth and the last perfect wedding she needs to make partner. Of course, when she helps him into a taxi at the end of the night she has no idea that he’s only just begun to poke holes in her professional exterior. Colin might have the skills to seduce a romance professional, but can he convince her that he’s the best man to share her happy ever after?
“Highly recommended for a few hours of warm fuzzies and a sweet, happy ending!”- Angie Just Read…for TheRomanceReviews.com
