Passion Unleashed by Larissa Ione

May 7th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars.

Description from Amazon: FORBIDDEN TEMPTATIONS

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.

Hoo wee!  Talk about hot!  I have to admit at first I was a little hesitant when I saw the glossary at the beginning of the book.  Usually I cringe when I see glossaries because I wonder just how complex the story is going to get but I loved Wraith and the chemistry between he and Serena is sizzling.  It was a given of course that Serena and Wraith would fall for each other so the big question was who was going to die and if there was some sort of loop hole that could keep the two of them together.  A wonderful story and not only did I love watching Serena and Wraith grow closer but it also made me eager to read the rest of Ione’s books to find out the stories of the other characters.  Definitely a book to check out.
