What The Blurb Says :
Abigail Montgomery was happy with her life. She was independent, strong and had managed on her own for a long time. That was until the dark, handsome Desmond LaGrange showed up at the bar where she worked. How could she know that this mysterious man would end up saving her from the evil she didn't even know existed? And why was she so drawn to him?
Desmond LaGrange was fighting a past he was trying hard to forget. But when
he see's the beautiful Abby working behind the bar, something deep inside compels him to get closer.
The only question was why?
When he saves her from danger - can he resist the strong pull between them to let her go when the time comes?
A wonderful, stand-alone story that will introduce you to - and make you fall in love with the characters from the upcoming books. Meet the group of characters that you can't help but root for, fall in love with, and sigh over!
Book 2 in the Supernatural Desire Series - coming soon!
4 out of 5 (very good)
I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.
Abby has sworn off men, they just can't be trusted. So she's not interested in the drop-dead gorgeous hunk of man who's been staring at her for the past three nights, no sirree, not at all. Then someone else shows up who does actually take her mind off the hunky chunk of man flesh but not in a good way. This guy actually creeps her out, so much so that she asks her friend to take over so that she can escape home. Now this bit actually reminded me of the films you watch to scare yourself and the spunky but oh so clueless heroine runs up the stairs, all the while you are shouting at your TV to not go up there yada yada yada.
This book is the first in a series and I am already really enjoying it. There is plenty of humour and wit to go around - some of Abby's lines are pure perfection. There is love, loyalty, friendship and of course, miscommunication. This is not a flash in the pan insta-love story (thank goodness) but instead their relationship builds up slowly and seems all the more stronger for it.
If I had one thing to say against this book, it would be of Desmond's constant use of "my pet". For some reason, this rubs me the wrong way in every book I read it in, I don't know why, put it down to being a foible of mine!
Thoroughly enjoyable and definitely recommended.

Abby is a bartender, barely making it, just trying to get through her shift. She comes face to face with a Demon when Desmond comes to save the day. He gravitated to her, couldn’t function without thinking about her after his first night seeing her at the bar. He feels the need to protect her. Finally he realizes why she is so important. She is the daughter of a very, very important member of the Fey and the demons want her. What will Desmond do to protect her? Can Abby handle the emotions she feels when Desmond is around?
Oh baby, did I enjoy this book! Vampires, Fey, Werewolves, witches, and demons – who could ask for a better story? Oh, let’s add some pretty hot and steamy bedroom scenes too! Darlene really did a great job writing this book. I really enjoyed the Vampire’s in this book. They didn’t sparkle but they weren’t too fearsome, they were a perfect mix between scary creatures but loveable. The addition to Abby being part Fey was probably the icing on the cake.
If you like to laugh at the banter between siblings, best friends, and lovers’ then this is just another reason to read this book. There were several times I found myself laughing out loud at Marcus and Desmond and Desmond and Luke and of course Desmond and Abby. There was some heartbreaking moments and some incredibly tense moments when you weren’t sure what was going to happen, which causes you to sit on the edge of your seat ignoring the world while you grip whatever you are reading on until your knuckles are white. Yep, I thought it was that good.
The detail could have probably been a little better or more descriptive but there is enough there to get the picture and close your eyes and immerse yourself into the story.
Take my advice, go pick up a copy and read it immediately. It’s a great, great story!
