Desire Unchained

This is the 2nd book in the Demonica series by Larissa Ione and the story of Shade and Runa.

Book Blurb:

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.

I love this book. :) The concept is unique - a demon run hospital, specializing in the treatment of demons. A trio of demon brothers taking care of the day to day operation.

Shade is an EMT. Driving an enhanced ambulance that can't be seen by humans, he makes his runs picking up any demon (good or bad) and taking them to hospital to be patched up and sent back out.

Runa is human. She was in love with Shade until she caught him doing something she thought he had no business doing - she did not know he is a demon - now she really wants him dead - or maimed at the very least.

I have the 3rd book on my TBR shelf and can't wait to get to it. :)

I give this book and the series so far 5 out of 5 stars. :)

Hi Michelle!

I am so delighted you are enjoying the Demonica series! It was a 5 star read for me as well!

Just so imaginative and well written.

Hi Michelle!

Great review! I'm going to have to give in and try this series.

I keep looking at it, pick it up, and then decide on something else.

Next time, I'll just have to keep it in the hands.

I was afraid the series was going to end with the 3rd installment. But no, thank goodness. I just found out the 4th book is Ecstasy Unveiled - Lore's story, and it is due out Feb of 2010. A 5th, untitled is due in the Fall of 2010.


I think you will like it. :) It has more action than romance - but still, great reads. :)

Thank you Barbara. I wish we had a Borders near us - I think the closest one is an hour and a half drive. That's a little farther than I like to travel. But sometimes they have things that B&N doesn't.


I don't mind tag-a-longs at all. :) The more the merrier. :) Nice to have your input.
