We know many of you are aching for the next Black Dagger Brotherhood book. Even after you pick up and devour Lover Unleashed (BDB #9) on March 29, then what? You’ll be ready for more vampire alpha males to find love. For strong women who knock those boys down a peg. For blood and fighting and steamy love.
If you read this blog regularly, you know we can rattle of tons of novels and series with supernatural alpha males, kick ass heroines and battle scenes to blow your mind. But this is about your best bet. If you like J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood novels — starting with Dark Lover, hitting its stride with Lover Awakened, up through Lover Mine — we’d place money on you falling for Larissa Ione’s Demonica series.
We’ll keep this one simple. Read the back cover copy for the first Demonica novel Pleasure Unbound and then tell us if you’re not swayed.
In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . .
She’s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-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 quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul…
Yes, you’ll swoon. Demons in lieu of vampires. Still hot. Oh, hell, just order Pleasure Unbound now for $5.99 from the Book Depository or $6.99 from Amazon.
WILD CARD SUGGESTION
We’re adding one more suggestion to this If You Like… piece. If you really just love the chemistry between a stubborn alpha and an equally stubborn heroine, try Meljean Brook’s The Iron Duke (our review). It’s steampunk romance — airships, machines and pirates. Not a quick read, but an amazing read.
