The Flame and the Shadow - Denise Rossetti I was surprised at the erotic nature of this book as I was certainly not expecting it. This book is classed as a paranormal romance but it's much more than that. It's set on an alien planet where interplanetary relationships occur. It's set in a fantasy world with witches, warlocks and evil technomages (scientists/magicians). There's even a M/M angle where "me and my shadow" has new connotations.

Regardless, I enjoyed the story though it was more about sex than plot and the "series angle" wasn't even explored until the final quarter of the book setting up future installments. I will be reading the next book hoping that more of the "four-sided pentacle" theme is explained and the sex is cut back to a reasonable level.
