He’s the reason to be careful what you wish for.
After her jealous boyfriend makes an angry, careless wish, Maya DeLuca finds herself trapped in a traveling demonic circus and at the mercy of a devious jinni, Bell Madoc. She joins the other lost souls of Arcanium who suffer in perpetual purgatory under the weight of their wishes, all making the best of a cursed situation.
But Maya’s not even cursed because of her own wish, which means she still has three for Bell to grant.
He may be fond of her—the passion they share is as hellfire hot as it is wrong—but that doesn’t mean she’s safe from his endlessly inventive, wicked imagination. He might twist her wishes at his whim for his own pleasure. Or he might just give her what she wants…which could be even worse.
These days, she’s traveling in some unusual circles…
Before her father can kick her out of the house, Caroline runs away to join the circus. She’s far from the oddity or performer that Arcanium is known for, but the fortune teller grants her wish to become a part of his circus and assigns her to run the carousel.
It’s repetitive work and the quarters are cramped, but it’s the perfect job while Caroline figures out what the hell she’s going to do with her life.
Then some of the creepy carousel mounts—the ones that look like tormented human men—start coming to life at night. At first she thinks they’re just dreams, but she quickly discovers that Arcanium is no ordinary circus.
Caroline must not only come to grips with the shady motivations and affections of her new colleagues, but also with the driven desire inside her for Riley and Colm—the men bound to the carousel to atone for their sins, who beg her to save them.
Friends are supposed to stick together, but now they can never let go.
Seth and Lars are drawn into the dark world of Arcanium when Seth makes a throwaway wish in front of the circus fortune teller Bell Madoc, who decides that Arcanium needs a little something extra in the ring. The jinni tears Seth and Lars from their lives of university soccer, on-campus parties and bright futures, cursing them to remain in contact at all times.
Now they perform beautiful aerial acts for the circus, but these two otherwise straight men must also adjust to living their lives always touching, sleeping together in the same small bed and never having any privacy.
The curse also alters the way they express and experience desire for others, like conjoined twins Joanne and Jane.
And, to their horror and confusion, each other.
Reader Advisory: These books contain horror-related action and violence, homophobia, racist language, non-sexual whipping, hot MM sex between straight-identified men, MFMF ménage à quatre and an MFM scene with two female voyeurs. There are MF, FMF and MFM sex scenes with multiple partners. There are also scenes of double penetration and anal sex and some scenes of dubious consent due to magical influence, but all depicted sex scenes in the Arcanium series are ultimately consensual, no matter how dangerous, apart from one brief scene of sexual assault and attempted rape. There is a scene of miscommunication where sexual assault almost occurs, but all sex scenes within Arcanium are consensual. Warnings for demon clown sex (it’s just as weird but hotter than you think— avoid if coulrophobic), sex with well-endowed demons, exhibitionism and voyeurism. There are references to clown, incubus and succubus murder, scenes of BDSM and non-BDSM related whipping. There is also reference to needle play, graphic biting during sex and some talented tentacles in a sex scene.
