Ever have one of those books that when you read the blurb you were super excited about it? Then had to put it down because something else came up? Then had another book that just had to be read, then another, then another? Each project or book pushing the first book further and further away? Then when you had nothing else to read you remembered "the book"? Yeah me too! That happened to me with Demon's Desire. I did Kendra Leigh Castle an extreme disservice by allowing this to happen. Demon's Desire is everything it's blurb promised it would be.. and a whole lot more!
Demon's Desire is book two in Ms Castle's Hearts of the Fallen Series and what a twisted tale of good vs evil this story is! Love never comes easy but for some creatures, it's harder than others.
Drusilla, is Vampire royalty has served faithfully at her brother's side for over two thousand years. She is a warrior, a fixer, a friend and if needed a powerful enemy. Only once has been a lover.. well a true lover where the heart is involved.. and that ended badly. So she has spent millennium serving her people. But now one powerful Demon, an angel fallen into the abyss of hell, who is trying to redeem himself has captured her completely.
Meresin, is convinced that there is no redemption for him. Young and brash, he left heaven to follow Lucifer, promises of power tempting him, but promises of connection, friends, no more solitude tempted him more. As we all know, Lucifer lied.. Now Meresin is straddling the line between good and evil. He has escaped Hell and is committed to serving good. Only trouble is, he can't seem to be forgiven. So now he still lives in exile. This time one of his own making.
Dru and Meresin.. neither quite understands how very much they fit. Like pieces of a puzzle each part is needed to make the whole. While Dru hasn't been wallowing in her heartbreak all these years she has been afraid to love. And Meresin, he knows there is something special about Dru but love is such a foreign concept to him, he just doesn't get what it is. It's bad enough that they have this connection but now Meresin has been sent on a mission to remove the lightening from him and Dru is at his side. What will such an alive creature do while wandering throughout Purgatory?
Because it's into Purgatory they must go.. Facing past fears all the while running from Lucifer's minions!!
A wonderful story!! I seriously suggest you check this out!!
