Larissa Ione - Pleasure unbound

Three brothers born as Seminius demons but human in appearance, they are a breed bound by desire (incubus) and only male. At the age of hundred they gain the ability to shapeshift and impregnate females, but sometimes it happens that some of them lose any sense of compassion and turn rogue. Eidolon, Shade & Wraith bundle their healing skills together and build UG hospital, where demons are the doctors, but also the patients

Eidolon is the eldest of the three demon brothers and one of the doctors in the UG Hospital, the only thing he lives for is protecting and healing his kind. But Eidolon is close to his transition and fears he’ll become just like their father, impregnate every female in sight, no matter if then want to or not. Then one night a demon-slayer is brought in to his hospital, wounded after fighting one of their fearest demon kind. This woman Tayla Mancuso sets his blood on fire and he knows she’s probably responsible for killing several of his kind, maybe even his older brother Roag. But during the operation he performs on Tayla he learns that she has a secret of her own, she’s half-demon.

Tayla Mancuso is an Aegi slayer; she’s trained to kill all demon kind because she’s taught that they are evil. So when she wakes up in a demon hospital, the first thing in her mind is to kill as many demons as possible, but a powerful spell protects everyone in the hospital against aggression. Tayla discovers that she also feels the attraction between her and the gorgeous demon doctor who’s helping her.

When demons begin turning up dead or badly hurt with their organs harvested, the Aegi slayer are suspect number one, so Tayla has to fight to clear their name. But what if Eidolon is telling her the truth? Is it possible that not all demons are evil?

Pleasure unbound by Larissa Ione is the first novel in her Demonica series and I have to tell you it’s fabulous. She created a demon world full with vampires, slayers, shapeshifters and many other paranormal beings. An agency who believes that demon is evil and that they have to protect humankind by killing them.

Tayla is a strong woman, who’s got hurt during a fight with one of the demons. She doesn’t know at first that she’s brought to the secret demon hospital, but as soon as she realizes this she want to take out as many as she can. But then this gorgeous doctor tells her she’s half demon and that she’s wrong about most of the demons.
Eidolon is a Seminius demon and know he’s got little time left before his transition, but when he meets Tayla on his operation table, he cannot ignore the huge attraction between them, so he use his demon powers to seduce her.

The other two demon brothers Shade & Wraith are just great; you can really sense the huge bond between the brothers. There isn’t anything they wouldn’t do for the other. Kynan, the human special agent turns out to be a great alley. And then we have Gem, Tayla’s twin sister hopes to get a chance to really get to know her sister after they were separated at birth.

I have to be honest and tell you that I have a new series that I can add to my favorite series list, this novel just swoop my off my feet and I’m really looking forward to the rest of the series.

Colleen Gleason - The rest falls away

Victoria Gardella Grantworth debut season was delayed because of the death of her grandfather and father, but now it’s finally here. Victoria is really looking forward to attending the balls and maybe even find a husband. But there is something bothering her, for the last couple of weeks she has dreams about killing vampires and she is not sure what to think of it. The only person she can talk to about this kind of stuff is her eccentric Aunt Eustace and after a good talk Victoria discovers more about her family legacy than she already knows. It appears she is this generation vampire slayer, a venator.

During the day Victoria is training to become a ruthless vampire slayer, guided by her aunt Eustace and her personal trainer and during the evenings she attends balls en opera’s with her mother to find the suitable husband. Victoria tries to keep the two worlds apart, but at her coming out party when she meets handsome Lord Phillip de Lacey, she senses a vampire and she knows it is time to make her first kill.

When she’s about the make her first kill Victoria almost stakes the vampire executioner Maximilan Pesaro and he is not happy about it. Maximilan believes that Victoria cannot keep her personal life separate from the hunting. And Victoria is about to find out how right Max really is.

The rest falls away by Colleen Gleason is the first novel in the Gardella vampire chronicles. It’s the fist novel I’ve read by Miss Gleason and I have to say she didn’t disappoint me at all. I have to be honest I had the first two novels on my shelves for ages, but after a friend of mine mentioned that the series was fabulous I needed to find it out for myself and I have to say what a lovely surprise that was.

Victoria Grantworth is just a young woman who just comes out for her debut season and hopes to find a suitable husband, at least that’s what her mother wants. But after some strange dreams about vampires, she’s wondering if there is more in her life. So she goes to the only person who will understand her and explains to her what and who Victoria really is. From the moment Victoria decides to fight the vampires and take her place as the next venator, her life is turning up side down and never will be the same again.

There are three strong male characters in this novel, Phillip de Lacey who could be the suitable husband Victoria is looking for. Maximilan Pesaro, one of the vampire slayers who don’t believe Victoria will be able to do her job as venator and live her life in society. And then there is Sebastian Vioget, the handsome owner of a vampire bar who seem pretty much impressed by Victoria and show it to her every opportunity he’s got.

If you put Buffy and historical “regency” romantic fantasy together then you will get Victoria Grantworth and her adventures. You find it all in this novel, historical romance, young female slayer, some nasty vampires and good doses of male characters to make things very interesting. I cannot wait to see what will happen to Victoria in the next novels.
