Review: My Wicked Enemy by Carolyn Jewel

My Wicked Enemy is a Paranormal Romance by Carolyn Jewel from Grand Central Publishing.

Book Blurb:
 
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?
 
Carson Phillips was orphaned at a very young age and sent to live with Alvaro Magellan who's idea of raising her was to bring in a series of Nanny's to take care of her.  She was not allowed to attend school, have friends or leave the house without escort.  This was for her own protection - according to the doctors and all the test Magellan had them run on Carson, she is very delicate.

What Carson does not know is that she is a witch who has had her powers suppressed her entire life.

When Carson finds out that Magellan is more than just a cold hearted, selfish individual - she runs.  With no idea where to go or what to do, Carson is wandering around alone.  And that is very dangerous - she may not know what she is - but others do, and they would like nothing more than to see her dead.

Nikodemus hates Magellan with every fiber of his being and he wants Magellan dead - as well as the witch who has helped him wreak so much havoc.

When Nikodemus sees Carson walking alone along the the busy street, he thinks his prayers have been answered.  If he can capture Carson, getting to Magellan will be that much easier.

But when Nikodemus realizes that Carson has been a pawn in Magellan's sick games - he decides a change of plan is in order.  And Carson is more than willing to play her part in bringing Magellan down.

I really enjoyed My Wicked Enemy.  This book is action packed, fast paced and full of surprises.  And for those of you who like a little steamy something, something - well it has some of that too.  :)

I give My Wicked Enemy 4 out of 5 stars.  :)
