Vein Of LOve Tour banner
Title: Vein Of Love
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.

“What are you doing?” His dark, classic suit was smoothed, ironed to perfection, and if someone had told her he was a demon, she would have laughed. He looked far too good in a suit.

“Uh, I was just waiting for you,” she stammered.

He cocked a brow. “Waiting for me?”

She hummed an answer, too nervous to speak. “Are you, uh, heading out?” She eyed his three-piece suit.
His relaxed posture turned to steel. “A work matter.” Grey eyes scanned her damp hair and she drew in a deep breath at the incredible sensation he made her feel. Stop it. “I don’t have to go right away. The people there”—he visibly swallowed—“aren’t as entertaining as you.”

Her heart soared and quickly plummeted. Do not allow him to suck you in—ugh, don’t use the word ‘suck’. The edge of the scissors’ blade dug into her palm.

With a smile, Tensley stepped closer until he was towering over her petite figure. He eyed her with curiosity. “What are you hiding?” Molly’s heart thudded, her grip loosening on the scissors from perspiration. A corner of his lips quirked. “What are you hiding behind your back, Ms. Darling?” He reached a hand out to grasp her wrist. She panicked and without thinking, sliced through his shirt.

Molly has always been warned of the shadows, and that one day they would come for her on her birthday. Never understanding more than that but fearful none-the-less. Centuries earlier her family signed a contract that when a Daemon was born, on her nineteenth birthday they would come to collect, as she is betrothed to a Demon family. Only Molly doesn't know that she is a Daemon, just that she has weird eyes and powerful strength that works sporadically.

Tensley is the Demon, and he comes to collect her, never really explaining the situation to her. As much as she wants out of the situation she stays for the safety of her family and close friends.

Can her she come to lover her enemy?

This book did keep me ensnared as I turned the pages to find out what happens next. Warning: This is a Cliffhanger.

Vein of Love by R. Scarlett is about a girl who finds herself in the middle of a betrothal she never asked for, to a demon. The pact was made 300 years ago and if she wants to keep her family protected, she will go through with it. When she finally meets her betrothed, she finds a man she is attracted to, but will she marry him or destroy him?

Overall, I liked the book; however, there was a lot of back and forth and indecision. At times it got to be a little annoying. That said, I did like the characters and the underlying story. It does pull you in and you want to know what will happen next. When I got to the end, I was sorely disappointed because I needed more. I needed the rest of the story. 3.5 stars, and while the heroine could be a little annoying, I still recommend it to readers who like paranormal.
