Sully Shaw is one of three gay male witches on Devlin Island. He is trying to hold back his temper as he listens to one of the local residents of Greymoor Copse explain how he had breached the barrier of stone gate, a passageway for demons to escape into this world. It is Sully’s job is to banish demons and spirits. Troy Landry soon realized his navigating mistake when his boat ran ashore on the island. The good news is he met Sully; the bad news is a demon jumped inside his body.

Possession is the first book in the Devlin Island series. This is a superb well-paced tale filled with humorous dialog, battles with a demon, sizzling intimate scenes as well as snarky characters. There was a reason Sully lived out at the edge of the forest, everybody knew he hated visitors. Sully dealt with demons and spirits; the living generally pissed him off too much. Sully has a past of rejection because he is a witch and he hides his emotional pain by being rude to people. Sully has an immediate attraction to Troy, nevertheless, Sully fears being rejected again so he tries to push Troy away.

Troy is a shy, polite gay man who is fed up with his job of photographing bored females for women’s catalogues, in addition to living with a manipulating sister. Troy had never before experienced the sexual joys he became aware of with Sully. Troy accepted Sully without any emotional reservations. S.W. Vaughn has created a marvelous heartwarming saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.
