Author: R. Scarlett
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: August 16, 2016
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.
Her fingers caught his tie, and he froze, startled by her brave actions as she tightened the fabric around his neck.
“If anything happened to her, I don’t know what I would do.”
So you wanna play “who's in charge”, sweetheart?
His lips quirked, and he touched both her hands. “Is that a threat, Ms. Darling?” He’d show her who was in charge; he'd throw her on the bed and devour her—pleasurably, of course. His fingertips skimmed the hollow of her wrist.
“Because I expect people who make threats to follow through.”
Her hands retreated. “Do I look like a threat?”
He half-smiled. She had no idea how much of a threat she actually was to him. How, if he let her in, she could control him, just like that human seductress had controlled his brother.
From studying English literature and minoring in History, she loves losing herself in a good book and snuggling up to her Brittany Spaniel. When she's not writing or plotting a delicious novel, she can be found hanging out with friends and family, going on long car rides, exploring small towns, or watching reruns of Sex and the City.
