A DEMON ENSLAVED
Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master's assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister's life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he'll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.
AN ANGEL TEMPTED
Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side, sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She's determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary-even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender. Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again-one hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.
This story is based on the traditional plot of the good girl falling for the bad boy, but Larissa Ione has added her own brand of intrigue that keeps this passion filled story so very interesting. I found myself immersed into the story of Idess and Lore because it goes from complicated to critical fast at the very beginning and just builds from there. Throughout the book I kept thinking how's this new kink going to get work out. The characters are not perfect and they are flawed in such a way I found myself emotionally tied to each one. I found Idess to be the just right combination of tough, soft and just a little of a bad girl. Lore was self-sacrificing for those he loved, and perfect for Idess.
As a subplot to Estasy Unveiled, there is an angry disturbance causing the spirits to be agitated at Underworld General, a medical center under the city of New York for vamps, demons, werewolves, well pretty much all paranormal beings. This disturbance also starts to flow over and effect the people who visit and run the hospital. Things start to get pretty tense around Underworld General and angry emotions start to fly.
Also, when you get to end of the book and you're thinking about how you want more, there is an excerpt to the next novel in the Demonica series.
After reading Ecstasy Unveiled, the fourth book in the Demonica series, I have come to expect to be captivated by Larissa Ione's writing. Yes, in my opinion, Larissa Ione is the mistress of world building and scorching love scenarios with endings that leaving you feeling beyond satisfied.
If you have been reading the Demonica series then you do not want to miss Ecstasy Unveiled. Or you haven't started this series yet, don't wait another day but I recommend you start with the first book, Pleasure Unbound.
