This is the 3rd in Larissa Ione’s Demonica series – it’s Wraith’s book and it’s dark and sexy and probably my favorite of the trilogy!!

Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter—and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she’s been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality . . . as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn’t all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she’s finally met the one man she cannot resist.
Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe—her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions, and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: he’s falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.
Special note from Larissa:
Passion Unleashed will be released with special content! At the back of the book, you will find a compendium lthat provides details about most of the species of demons found in the Demonica world, as well as some extras about the main characters and pronunciation guides for some of the more difficult names. Also included is a short story that tells about the first meeting between Eidolon, Shade, Roag, and Wraith. I hope you enjoy the bonus content!
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 heart’s or succumb to a madman’s evil plans.
When I took Larissa’s Demonica quiz on Facebook, I got Wraith. And don’t get me wrong, I love Wraith (and his book comes out next month, so there’s not a long wait at all.) But then Larissa and I were talking and I told her that, in real life, I’d probably pick Shade. Because Demon doctors do exist in real life. What?
You can read an excerpt here and order here! What are you waiting for? This book is so fantastic, I can’t stand it. if I didn’t love Larissa so much I would truly hate her for how talented she is.
Wait, I do hate her. *shrugs* Oh well, at least she already knows that. :LOL:

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your lifeâ€¦
Sheâ€™s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasureâ€”but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his desire to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkableâ€”and let Tayla possess him, body and soulâ€¦
I love this book – there’s no other way to say it. It is fantastic, awesome and I tell everyone that just reading it makes me jealous of her writing and her world building. I remember when she wrote the proposal for this book – I remember when she sold it – it feels like that was just yesterday even though I’ve been waiting SO long for the book to be on the shelves!!! I can only imagine how the wait was for her – but it’s FINALLY here.
Larissa’s given some great interviews here and here and here, and she’s at Writeminded today talking a bit more about Pleasure Unbound.
What are you waiting for? Go buy it!!! It’s at Amazon and Barnes & Noble and at all brick & mortar stores AND it’s been spotted at Walmart. The girl is going places. 😉
Inspired by the sultry heat and sensual ambiance of New Orleans , this steamy collection delves into the erotic underground of the Big Easy. Here is a tantalizing trio of stories by three rising stars that will tease your imaginationâ€”and seduce your senses.
Lush, haunting, and provocative, New Orleans has something to satisfy every desireâ€”as three very lucky women are about to discover.
In â€œShadow Playâ€ (by Sydney Croft) an ex-supermodel desperate to revive her career seeks the help of a gorgeous, reclusive photographer with a special giftâ€”and offers him anything he wants in return. The result is a series of erotic positions captured on filmâ€”along with a mind-blowing physical connection neither expectedâ€¦.
In â€œThe Art of Desireâ€ (by Eden Bradley) a sheltered young woman turned on by the idea of getting tattooed dares to make her fantasy a reality. But as her arousing sessions with a dangerously handsome tattoo artist move from the tattoo parlor to the bedroom, they make an impression thatâ€™s more than skin deepâ€¦.
And in â€œNight Visionâ€ (by Stephanie Tyler) when artist Catie Lanford hires professional cooler Bat Kelly to whip the failing bar sheâ€™s recently inherited into shape, sheâ€™s not looking for a loverâ€”until she lays eyes on the sexy wild man. Soon theyâ€™ve agreed to mix business with pleasure, and Catie discovers that Bat is just what she needs to set her artistâ€™s imaginationâ€”and her bodyâ€”on fire.
Abandon your inhibitions and excite your spirit with a gathering of tales thatâ€™s as sexy and spicy as the city of New Orleans itself.
Mandy Burns from Fresh Fiction says, “The title says it all in this deliciously erotic anthology by stars of the genre. What a perfect name for an anthology! HOT NIGHTS, DARK DESIRES is a flawless blend of sexy characters and steamy chemistry proving once again that these authors are the best at what they do. Definitely a must-read!!”
And if I owe you an email, give me a few days and I’ll get there – I got sick after my daughter’s operation and I’m not feeling much better, two weeks later. And then there’s the migraine that hit yesterday and prevented me from making the Writeminded chat – I’m so sorry about that!!!
