Ice-queen Serana Blake is quite content to be—peacefully—single. That is until her world is upended by a smooth-talking, dirty-minded “daemon” hybrid who, for whatever reason, seems intent on breaking down her barriers…
Via any means necessary.
When the persistent and sexy, Logan Merris does his best to melt her icy exterior, little does she realize that he has more on his mind than a one-night stand. Like preventing the end of the world, for one.
And avoiding any attempt at a serious relationship.
As unforeseen events pass, they may be unable to avoid their budding attraction. Will they be able to keep their walls in place, or will destiny have the final say?
A new paranormal series of duets for each couple in a greater world of linked books. Each duet set can be read as a standalone, but will be better enjoyed if read in order.
Ice queen meets hot blooded daemon! 5 stars
This is an uber sexy read featuring one uptight, relationship adverse human with a pleasure obsessed Shael daemon. It is very much the case of opposites do most definitely attract in this fast-paced and entertaining paranormal read. The book, the first instalment of Serana’s and Logan’s story, is party of the author’s Daemon’s Blade series, but can be read as a standalone.
I loved this couple and how their relationship evolves. When daemon Logan arrives in the town of Meyweather, he is on a mission to save the world and his own ass. However, once he meets the mortal Serana, he becomes intent on satisfying his growing lust, before he walks away – he is after all the archetypal love’ em and leave ‘em type of guy… I just adored how Serana rebuffs his advances as she is not looking for any sort of relationship, least of all one with Logan who she has pegged as an arrogant player. The fact that Logan has never been turned down before, which makes him even more determined to pursue Serana, was just so delicious. The chemistry and banter between the couple is very well done and a delight to read.
Things get complicated when Fate conspires to draw the pair ever closer, and Serana unwittingly finds herself drawn into a world she has no idea exists. How will she react when she learns of this and more importantly can she survive? Can Logan protect this mortal woman from his enemies and what destiny has in store for her? Serana started off as a simple conquest in his eyes but she has become so much more…
The overall ‘feel’ of the book is initially not as dark as the two previous novels in the series, darker elements being introduced as the story develops. I enjoyed the chance to find out more about Marcus, Logan’s half-brother who featured in the previous books, and his other siblings. The book is a great addition to the world the author has created and I am hugely looking forward to the next instalment.
Recommended to lovers of paranormal romance, especially those like me who have a soft spot for daemons.
Please note, I received a copy of the book from the author and am voluntarily leaving my honest review.
