Demon slayer Andrea Cole has always taken down the demons and vampires she hunts without mercy. But when a fellow slayer is captured and turned into a vampire by a sadistic monster, she must choose between loyalty to her family and the man she loves.
Kaden Quinn has dedicated his life to slaying vampires, so when he is turned into one, his greatest nightmare comes to life. And when the woman he loves is thrown into a dungeon with him - as food - he must battle new instincts and old desires, and choose between his life, and hers.
NOTE: This is a short novella that originally appeared in The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2 and the anthology Vampires in Love. It has been expanded for its stand-alone digital release. In the Demonica timeline, it falls between book 3, Passion Unleashed, and book 4, Ecstasy Unveiled, though it can easily be read without having read the Demonica novels.
I believe it was last night I saw this short story was being released and for the fact I hadn't read this short story in its original form in The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance, I squealed with excitement and today I immediately bought it for my Kindle on PC.
What can I say about this other than I loved it! Larissa didn't disappoint me(like she could ever but still).
Andrea is torn between her love for Kaden and her duty as a Demon Slayer.
Kaden who spent the majority of his life slaying the very thing he became and as badly as he wants and needs Andrea, can they still be together?
This was one wild ride, from the moment I bought it to the very last page and it was also great to see a couple characters from previous books.
What did I like :
Everything! if I tried to write everything down , you would have the whole book before you and I don't want to spoil it. But I can say its a very fast read and you will devour it in no time.
What didn't like:
That it ended, I crave more of the Demonica's series , I still have to read Sin Undone yet, I know your asking why I haven't - I think because I know thats the last book and I don't want it too end yet.
Would I recommend:
Hell Yes!(pardon my cursing) but I absolutely adore Larissa and if you haven't read her Demonica Series you should and if you have but not read this one - read it, you won't be disappointed.
Oh yea in all my excitement I almost forgot to post my rating 5 out of 5 (very very high 5)
And don't forget she has a new series coming out ! They are here. They ride. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The first book, Eternal Rider is scheduled for release in April 2011.
