He Comes With the Dark, Deirdre O’Dare http://www.amberquill.com/store/p/694-He-Comes-With-The-Dark.aspx
This novel is definitely fantasy but I’m a little hard pressed to put it into a specific category! Since it takes place in the present day real world, I guess urban fantasy is the closest fit but there are other elements as well! You will have to decide for yourself! I’ll post an excerpt or two in a bit. Here is the cover and also is the blurb: Â BTW I just love the cover!!

***One paints with line and color, but the other paints with powerful, sensual magic…
Stifled by her restrictive mentor and clientele in the Bay Area, artist Arabella seeks a new home in Sedona, Arizona. The ambience rejuvenates her creativity even as she encounters an earlier denizen of the region who turns her narrow life inside out. How can an invisible entity possibly awaken her deeply sensual nature and school her in the carnal pleasures sheâ€™d felt were greatly over-rated? Will she be able to channel this new energy into some incredible artistic efforts?
Zeth fled Lemuria when a natural catastrophe of earthquake, volcanic eruption and tsunami swallowed his homeland. He led a boatload of survivors on a quest to seek a new home. The group struggled and splintered disastrously, leaving him one of a few survivors. After a terrible conflict, he is condemned to remain a disembodied spirit until he can again become human and modify the tragic events in which he played a large part. Millenia later, he finds a new resident making her home in the spot he has come to consider his. Using only the power of his intellect and energy, can he seduce this artist into visualizing a likeness that he can take to create the new body he requires?
Once incarnate again, how will Zeth manage to gather the folk needed to reverse the ancient curse and repair broken karmic patterns? Perhaps Arabella is also the magnet drawing several of them to the scene. Once he is a man again, Zeth must first enact the ancient drama anew, then choose whether to accept his freedom to go on to the spirit realm or remain to live a normal span as a human…with Arabella… ***
