Desire Unchained

Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione is the second book in her Demonica novel series. From the back cover.~

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 this 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 loved Pleasure Unbound, the first book in this series, but think Desire Unchained was even better. Runa has been out for Shade’s blood every since she found him with two other women. Unfortunately, that same night, she is attacked by a werewolf and is turned, so for 3 nights every month she now becomes a werewolf. Shade has been attracted to Runa from the very first time he saw her. However, he has a curse hanging over his head, so he must never fully fall in love with a woman or he will literally disappear from this world. Shade knows that Runa will be trouble for him, since he felt too much for her from the very beginning. Only after they are trapped together by Shade’s biggest enemy, do they realize they have to work together to get free. Runa and Shade can’t seem to keep their hands off of one another once Runa changes back to human from being a were. Runa and Shade together are some of the hottest and sexiest scenes I’ve read in some time. The connection between them goes much deeper than either is really ready to accept, but neither one seems to be able to stop what is going on between them.

I highly recommend the Demonica series to everyone. Larissa Ione gives her readers a fast-paced story filled with demons, humans, and other creatures. I’m lucky enough to have the next 2 books in the series in my TBR pile and am looking forward to the 5th book’s release in August.

Very nice write up here Liza. I LOVE this series as well. I finished the 4th book a couple of days ago, and I am dying to get my hands on Sin Undone. You are in for a wild ride. I hope your day is going well. Happy reading.

Peace and love,
Paula R.

I'm a big fan, but will have to hold off reading the next 2 for just a little while. Must get a few books read before RWA. Especially those I'm bringing to Orlando with me.
