Pleasure is their ultimate weapon…

Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn’t resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy. 

A Seminus Demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he’d seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever. 

As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts—or succumb to a madman’s evil plans.

    " Oh em gee! Loved it! It took me a little to get into it but only because it took some learning and getting used to the new world that she created. But very well written. Quite the page turner. This book had several moments where I actually said omg out loud. I'm starting the second book now. I have a feeling this will be my new favorite PNR series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather ~ Marceline | 1/29/2014

    " Tayla and Eidolon come from very different worlds. She is a demon slayer and he is a demon doctor working in an underworld hopsital. Their worlds collide after an injury that Tayla suffers and is taken to the demon hospital for care. A discovery while in the hospital turns Tayla's life upside down. She has to decide is she should trust the Aegis, the only family she ahs anymore, or believe the demon that has changed her life. This was a light, fun, steamy read. I have book two on my shelf and can't wait to read it. "

    " The author has a wonderful writing style and the book moved at a brisk enough pace to keep me interested. I would definitely classify the books as dark paranormal and they're hot but not explicit. The author has created a very intriguing world in the series, unlike anything else I've read on demons. "

    " Wow! This book was HOT!!! Great story too. I started this series (Demonica) in the middle and loved it and this first book of the series is just as good as the others. If shelf space wasn't an issue, I'd keep this one! "

    " Hot hot hot. Couldn't put it down all weekend. A lot of people will read it for the steamy bits (which are certainly page turners in and of themselves), but I really liked the underlying mystery that really kept the plot moving. "

    High recommendation to everyone!! "

    This one's got a little BDSM action going on. So... you know. Be forewarned. "
