“Darkness isn’t all one shade, sweetheart.”
Three centuries ago, Molly Darling’s ancestors signed a contract in blood—daemon blood—to protect themselves from harm. On the eve she turns nineteen, Molly leaves for her birthday party against her parent’s wishes, sick of their warnings about her “betrothal to a demon.”
Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later.
As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise.
Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss…or to kill.
Review – Well that cover certainly catches the eye. However what grabbed me even more was the blurb for this book. So this book completely took me by surprise it was so amazing, i love finding new authors and R. Scarlett is going top of my list as one to keep an eye on for her new work when it releases. So to the story i loved the paranormal element it was so seamless in how ‘our’ world and ‘their’ world was melded together. The romantic tension was great proper electrical fizzing in the air it felt like, and the banter between Molly and Tensley was brilliant. I need the follow up book now, but i am so happy i have found this author and had the chance to read this 5 star story
