"a wonderfully fresh paranormal romance"

As a young child, Carson Philips was orphaned and left in the care of Alvaro Magellan, a man who seems to barely take an interest in the girl, yet seems to tolerate her presence. As Carson grows, she just can't understand why her parent's would leave her in the guardianship of someone as cold and remote as Magellan.

One night after discovering the true depth to Magellan's evil, Carson decides to flee her very sheltered life because she's sure that Magellan means to finally turn his attention to her -- and not in a positive way.

Nikodemus is a powerful warlord and born to be a leader of his kind. When he awoke this morning he had 4 things on his to-do list: 1) eat breakfast, 2) get laid, 3) kill Alvaro Magellan, and 4) Kill Carson Philips. Amazed, he thinks it's his lucky day when he spots Carson strolling along a San Francisco street. But what he can't understand is...why? Why is she out here alone? Who does she think she is flaunting herself so publicly, as if she were truly untouchable? Is she truly that powerful of a witch that she's not scared of retribution from the fiends for what her kind have done to them?

Following along with Carson as she discovers who she truly is -- and what power she really holds -- was a fantastically fun ride! As Carson and Nikodemus become reluctant allies, it becomes apparent that she is something more than what Nikodemus first surmised -- an innocent witch. Having never encountered a magekind who didn't want to control a fiend, Nikodemus must reconcile his innate prejudice and distrust against all magekind before he can truly trust Carson and see where this taboo affair takes them.

Carolyn Jewel writes a wonderfully fresh paranormal romance with My Wicked Enemy. It's both fast-paced and action packed yet is also filled with a dark sensuality. I found that once I started reading this book, I really had a hard time putting it down. I'm just happy to report that there is a sequel planned to My Wicked Enemy that is tentatively scheduled to release in summer 2009. Not only did I love both Nikodemus and Carson, but I also loved the supporting cast in this book -- they definitely deserve to have their stories told as well! I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of paranormal romance. You won't be disappointed.

Her power is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

**A PNR Top Pick**

A desire that can't be controlled...

Carson Philips is a witch on the run. For years, the notorious mage, Alvaro Magellan, has held her as his psychological prisoner. But once Carson gets a glimpse of the true extent of his evil, she flees Magellan's mansion--stealing a stone talisman of unimaginable power on the way. Her only hope for survival is a demon who ignites a voracious hunger in her she can't deny, a longing she can't resist...

A hunger that can't be sated...

Nikodemus is a warlord with a mission: Kill Magellan and his green-eyed witch at any cost. But when he meets the desperate Carson, the pull of her magic takes his breathe away. He's not sure he can trust this tantalizing woman--she is his enemy--and less sure he can keep his hands off her. But Magellan will stop at nothing to reclaim what belongs to him. Can Nikodemus stop him before his desire for Carson destroys them both?
