Book Description

Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .



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 realises 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 hearts - or succumb to a madman's evil plans.

    5.0 out of 5 stars This one earns major Sexy Points! 3 Mar. 2009
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This is turning out to be a great series!

    We return to the demon hospital with it's preternatural doctors and nurses. This book is about Shade, the second brother who is also an incubus. Shade gets kidknapped by Ghouls who butcher demons and sell their parts on the black market. Hmm, nasty stuff. While trapped in his cell he runs into an ex girfriend who he cruelly dumped 10 months earlier, Runa..Runa wants to kill him (and who can blame her?) but she isn't the same girl that he knew before. She's ....different. Somehow (well, I'm not telling you how..) they are bonded together but are thrown into a race against time because Shade has a curse that could kill both of them. Runa has been working for a secret divison of the army and has been sent to spy on Shade and the demon hospital but is conflicted when she sees Shade and his collegues saving the lives of demons who have been ill treated by humans. This is a fast paced book with a great balance of romance, hot sex, male bonding and urban fantasy. You will struggle to put it down! We meet some new characters and revisit the old, there are some fabulous scenes with Kynan and Gem and the author does a brilliant job of enticing us with the next book which is out in March 2009.

    I can't say too much without giving it away. If you like The Black Dagger Brotherhood and The Dark Hunters then this is one for you. There are some action scenes and a hideous bad guy holding a grudge but there is also a good dose of warm and fuzzies to make you smile. The characterisation is well written and for me...that's what makes the book work, I need to find a connection with the characters and IMO the author does a great job of sucking the reader in and leaving enough little clues to make you pine for the next story.

    For any paranormal romance fans out there...add this one to your wishlist now but I would recommend reading the first book, Pleasure Unbound first.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Demonica book 2 25 Mar. 2010
    By Sarah (Feeling Fictional) TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This is the second book in the Demonica series and although I would recommend reading the series in order to get the most of the ongoing background story I think you would be able to read this as a stand alone book without too much confusion.

    When Shade wakes up to find himself chained in a dungeon he knows he's in trouble. Then he realises that his cell mate is his ex-girlfriend Runa, who he'd split up with the previous year after she found him in a rather compromising position. He isn't surprised that she's angry with him but he had no idea how much her life has changed since he last saw her. She has changed in ways he would never have expected.

    Runa had her heart broken by Shade and all she wants is to get her revenge. She hadn't planned on meeting him when they were both in chains being held prisoner by a madman though. They are going to have to work together if they are going to escape from the Ghouls but it isn't going to be easy to put her feelings on hold. There is a thin line between love and hate and the more time they spend together the more the lines begin to blur. This is only made more complicated by Shade's curse which means falling in love could lead to the death of them both.

    I loved the first book in the series Pleasure Unbound so had high hopes for Desire Unchained and it was even better than I was hoping for. I absolutely loved both Shade and Runa and the chemistry between them is amazing. Alongside the romance there is plenty of action and some fantastic plot twists and I loved getting to know more about some of the characters in the previous books - particularly Gem & Kynan.

    If you're a fan of J.R. Ward & Lara Adrian then I'm sure you're going to love this series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hot Sensual and Unputdownable 18 Nov. 2009
    Format:Mass Market Paperback
    This has all the elements of my favourite kind of book. Gorgeous but damaged hero, strong passionate heroine, great supporting characters, and a great plot that has you hooked from page 1. I love the world she creates so vividly,it's facsinating and unique. Its also very sensual and erotic, the 3 brothers Eidolon, Shade and Wraith, being Seminus demons. Shade has no alternative but to satisfy a females sexual needs when he senses them, whatever they may be.
    She is a gifted storyteller and you will fall madly in love with her characters, it's also full of emotion and humour.
    This is my first book by L.I. and I loved it, I'm going right out and getting the rest of the Demonica series. Highly recommended. Reminds me of Christine Feehan, Nalini Singh, Lara Adrian who I love.

    Desire Unchained by Larissa Ione

    Blurb - Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .

    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 hearts-or succumb to a madman's evil plans.

    Desire Unchained is the 2nd book in the Demonica series by Larissa Ione, as I have only recently discovered this series I’ve read this book straight after finishing book #1 and for me this has worked well. This time round I have not fumbled over the species names, or struggled to understand the dynamics of who’s good and who’s not.

    This book focuses around the story of Shade and Runa but like the first book it has beautifully set up the next book which I’m assuming will be Wraiths story.

    Ok so the good bits....

    • The love story... it’s a bit sappy but I love that fate brings them together even if it’s in a weird way.

    • Roag a brother back from the dead seeking revenge, just brilliant.
