Product Description

When Susan Innes comes to visit her friend, Annie Rivers, in Chapel House, the deconsecrated church that Annie is renovating into a home, she discovers her outgoing friend changed, reclusive, secretive, and completely enthralled by a mysterious lover, whose presence is always felt, but never seen, a lover whom she claims is god. As her holiday turns into a nightmare, Susan must come to grips with the fact that her friend’s lover is neither imaginary nor is he human, and even worse, he’s turned his wandering eye on Susan, and he won’t be denied his prize. If Susan is to fight an inhuman stalker intent on having her as his own, she’ll need a little inhuman help.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dark and Lustful Delight! 24 October 2016
By Tina Williams - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
A brilliant read! In the Flesh, book #1 in the Medusa's Consortium series, is a sizzling and darkly erotic paranormal romance that will not only push your buttons but keep you on your toes with a plot that will keep you guessing. It contains some sizzling scenes that left me, like Susan the heroine, panting for more! I am certainly looking forward to more books in the series.
I adored the main setting for the book, the gothic and decidedly eerie deconsecrated church in the North of England that Annie, Susan's friend, is renovating as her home. It is there that some truly terrifying events play out as first Annie and then Susan succumb to the entity in residence, a sexual predator who will not take no for an answer and whose powers and twisted desires are far from human... When Susan becomes his latest obsession will she too fall under his spell or will she be able to resist his addictive touch in which her sanity and very life is at risk? Is it already too late?
Susan soon finds that she needs help if she is to resist and defeat the entity that would possess and devour her and help (and romance) comes from some unexpected sources. The read is packed full of suspense and danger and oozes lust and raw sexuality. Twists and turns abound as Susan's free will is threatened by dark desires she cannot control. Will she escape or will she succumb to the demon's almost god like powers over her desires?
I just loved Michael, the builder who comes to Susan's aid and the many other supporting characters, all of whom are superbly well drawn and I am looking forward to getting to know more about them in future books in the series. I will not reveal much more, except to say that if you love dark erotic romances, especially those that delve into the depths of human desires and contain creatures of mythology and your darkest dreams then you need to read this book NOW! Please note that a copy of this book was given to me by the author for the purpose of a fair and honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip down the rabbit hole 6 November 2016
By Lisabet Sarai - Published on
No one writes paranormal fiction like KD Grace. In penning her tales of myths and magic, she plumbs psychological and spiritual depths that most authors don’t even realize exist. Ms. Grace ignores tropes and conventions, following the trail of her stories down the rabbit hole of her own fertile imagination. The truths she unearths amaze, arouse, terrify and delight.

In the Flesh shows more of this narrative serendipity than any of her other paranormal titles I’ve read. The novel began as a serial posted on her blog; I suspect that each installment was as much a discovery for her as it was for her fans. Certainly I found myself continually surprised by the story’s twists and turns, though in retrospect none of the plot devices seemed implausible. I just didn’t see them coming.

That’s a compliment. As anyone who reads my reviews will know, predictability in a story can really kill my enjoyment.

The tale begins when author Susan Innes is invited by her close friend Annie to visit Chapel House, the de-consecrated church Annie purchased six months previously. Susan finds Annie much changed. Her formerly plump, boisterous girlfriend has become skinny, pale and distracted, obsessed with a mysterious, invisible lover who she claims is God. As Susan watches Annie bathed in moonlight in front of the old altar, moaning and writhing with pleasure, she tries to rationalize her friend’s strange behavior as some sort of psychological illness.

However, Susan herself senses the presence of the unseen being who haunts the church’s half-ruined halls and overgrown garden. She feels his erotic pull, hears the promises of unspeakable ecstasy he whispers to her. Though she sees that Annie has been literally consumed by her spectral paramour and understands she is in danger of a similar fate, she cannot resist falling under his spell. Only the arrival of a burly workman named Michael saves her from losing herself completely.

Michael rips her out of the Guardian’s sphere of influence and takes her as his lover, but he cannot totally eradicate Susan’s irrational lust for the invisible but overwhelmingly seductive spirit. When the Guardian uses Annie to lure Susan back to his territory, Michael enlists the aid of allies equally powerful, and equally dangerous.

I don’t want to spoil things by saying too much more about the plot. However, the emotional and erotic intensity continue to build throughout the tale. There’s magic and terror and death, plus lots of sex—sex that involves deeper connections than the purely physical. As she did in her Lakeland Witches series, Ms. Grace explores the ways in which sexual experience is a gateway to new capabilities and states of consciousness.

As an author, though, there’s one aspect of the plot that I just have to mention. Susan gradually comes to understand that the act of writing is literally infused with magic. Her writing shapes reality. Even the supernatural creatures who surround her recognize and honor her awesome power as a true scribe—a woman whose imagination can alter the world, a woman whose words are made flesh.

I understand.

This is what it feels like to be a writer, on the best days when the ideas are flowing and the words write themselves. We’re immersed in the sacred act of creation, totally sure of ourselves, molding the universe in subtle but important ways. And this is perhaps what I loved best about In the Flesh: the fact that Susan manages to save herself and her companions not by casting a spell or wielding some enchanted sword, but by writing a story.

5.0 out of 5 stars She feels like there is someone there with her 24 October 2016
By Jennifer Ellis (BarBelles and Book Nerds) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
In the Flesh by K D Grace is the first book in her Medusa’s Consortium Series.

Susan’s friend Annie buys a deconsecrated church called Chapel House with plans to renovate it into a home for herself. She invites Susan to visit her at the church, but when Susan arrives, Annie is acting strange.

Annie is talking nonstop about her new boyfriend and how insatiable he is. The longer Susan is there, she starts to realize that something is not quite right in the church. She feels like there is someone there with her, but she can’t see them.

It turns out Annie’s new boyfriend isn’t human, and now he’s set his eyes on Susan.

Susan realizes she has to get them out of there, but that’s easier said then done. She finally escapes with the help of Michael, the contractor hired to do the renovations.

The longer Susan is around him, the more she starts to learn that the world she lives in and her place in it is not what she thought they were. The question is, can she survive it?

When I first started reading this book, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. It is based in a country that I am unfamiliar with so I had a little bit of a hard time envisioning it.

But I have to tell you, the longer I read it, the more it pulled me in. It isn’t your average ghost story. There is so much heat in this book, yet it doesn’t take away from the story line at all. The characters are so interesting and I found myself sympathizing with all of them, even the being in the church at times.

I highly recommend this book, and I can’t wait to read the next one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping paranormal perfection. 9 September 2016
By Karen S - Published on
This is paranormal story telling at its very best. An innocent trip to visit a friend turns into a shocking, scary, life-changing journey for Susan that quite literally sees her fighting her very own demon. The story twists and turns deliciously, leading you to question your own mind as Susan does. Knowing something is wrong in your head is all well and good but when your body tells you something completely different, do you fight it or do you succumb. This book had me rapt, the characters are absorbing and I just needed to read and read and read.
Read as an online serial.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love KD Grace she writes wonderfully and is just a ... 5 October 2016
By Cheryl Jackson - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I was given this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Another corker from KD. I love KD Grace she writes wonderfully and is just a little touch romantic at times beneath the filth so suits me just fine. I've not read a lot of her paranormal stuff though so this was quite a pleasant surprise.

The sex scenes are sizzling hot and there's plenty of it going around in different combinations. The book also contains a few mysteries that are fun to guess at regardless of whether you guess right or wrong. There are many different characters in this and I have a feeling that no matter who reads this book they will come away with their own favourite - I won't say mine as they enter the book quite late and I'd hate to even give that much away!

I am now eagerly awaiting book 2 in the series.
