This story originally appeared in The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2, but has bee expanded for it digital release.
*Author Note: This story takes place in the Demonia world, but is independent from the series and contains new characters. I place it in the timeline somewhere after book 3 only because of the vague mention of happenings from the first 3 books.
Demon slayer Andrea Cole has always taken down the demons and vampires she hunts without mercy. But when a fellow slayer is captured and turned into a vampire by a sadistic monster, she must choose between loyalty to her family and the man she loves.
Kaden Quinn has dedicated his life to slaying vampires, so when he is turned into one, his greatest nightmare comes to life. And when the woman he loves is thrown into a dungeon with him - as food - he must battle new instincts and old desires, and choose between his life, and hers.
If you are a fan of the Demonica series this is a great little side story. It's about two Guardians that work together and have fallen in love with one another. Things go wrong on an assignment and Kaden gets turned to a vamp and the couple has to deal with his new status in the underworld.
We get to see a little of Tayla (she is leading female in Please Unbound, 1st book in the Demonica series) when Andrea and Kaden goes to her for help.
This is a short but action and passion packed story from Larissa Ione.
I highly recommend it to anyone that is having Demonica withdrawals like me since the series has ended.
