Blurb : 

Desires Unleashed is the first novel in the riveting,
highly-addictive and sexually-charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles.

Experience the heart-pounding thrill of the chase in this electrifying
page-turner as you uncover the mystery behind the series of gruesome killings
that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.

When a grisly decapitated corpse pops up on a Chicago Street,
drained of blood, the highly-trained, government-funded special police force
assigned two of their best detectives to the case. S.U.I.T. Detectives Warren
Davis and Matthew Eric delve deep into their investigation to discover just who
or what is leaving mutilated bodies
in public places. They soon realize that the killer or killers is one step
ahead of them and if they are going to stop the menace before another innocent
human is viciously attack, they are going to need help. 

Natasha Hemingway liked her life just the way it was... normal
and supernatural-free. The vampires and shape-shifters were just where she
wanted them to be--far away from her. All was going well until an unfortunate
accident landed her in the hospital. It was then that she discovered she had an
ability that could help her save countless lives. All of a sudden, she finds herself
thrust into the dangerous and alluring world of the supernatural and into the
arms of two very sexy and deadly vampires.

humor and wit, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take
you for a ride you won't forget. You don't want to miss out on this amazing

Desires Unleashed Excerpt:

“Shhhh, quiet. You’ll die tonight, but you die as the chosen. Fear not, you are lucky to die by a vampire’s kiss,” he whispered into Anthony’s ear, repeating his most clich├ęd vampire quote.

He began enforcing his silent command-coaxing Anthony to remain calm. Once Xavier felt the other man’s muscles relax, he leaned closer to the pulsating artery underneath the smooth, soft skin of Anthony’s neck. Xavier’s mouth opened, fangs extending for the feeding. Anthony gasped, his back arching as Xavier’s fangs broke through his skin. Xavier began to feed; audible sucking noises filled the room, adding to the sexual atmosphere. Low moans were coming from the two men, both enwrapped in pleasure, sharing this special union. Darian watched closely. He enjoyed watching the “vampire’s kiss” in motion. He delighted in watching other people enjoying pleasure in all forms, even if it was their last time.

Anthony let out a long shivering moan. His body twitched once, then twice, falling limp as Xavier continued to feed, draining the body completely. He savored the warm, delicious, thick fluid as it filled his mouth, flowing down his throat. He could not, would not give this sensation up for anything in the world. He tilted his head slightly, widening his mouth to capture more of the blood that warmed him. It excited him; he could feel the warmth spread throughout his limbs. His body tingled as though little electric shocks where bursting over him. He had grown hard during the feeding, as all vampires did, and he felt his passions rise to the crest.

Xavier was disappointed when the blood stopped flowing as he was enjoying his feast. He pulled away, letting Anthony’s corpse slip from his hands. The world seemed to disappear as he relished the sensation the blood was giving him. He sat there, head leaned back, eyes closed, full-shaped lips slightly parted as he ran his hands down the length of his torso, past his stomach, to caress his aching groin. His body twitched as he massaged his penis relieving some of the pressure. Darian smiled, waving John out of his office. John nodded and scooped up Anthony’s corpse, throwing the body over his shoulder before exiting the room.

Darian walked up to Xavier, peered into his gray eyes and smiled. He squatted beside his lover, arms encircling the other man’s chest. He held him against his torso with one arm, while his right hand slid up Xavier’s chest to caress his throat. He grabbed Xavier’s chin, held his face up to his. Darian’s tongue darted out licking the spilt blood from Xavier’s lips. Their tongues met in a passionate kiss. A low groan escaped from Xavier as Darian began to caress him. He slid a hand inside his shirt, fingers seeking the firm nipples and gently rolled the delicate flesh between his fingertips, sending shivers through Xavier’s body. Darian’s other hand slid further down to caress Xavier’s crotch, massaging the hardness through the denim material. Ragged, panting moans filled the room as Xavier began to feel his climax. All sensations stopped when Darian released him and rose from the floor.

Confused and disappointed, Xavier looked up, a questioning look on his face. “Why stop?”

Smiling wickedly, Darian leaned close to Xavier’s ear and whispered.

“An eye for an eye, my beautiful inamorato. Tomorrow night, we’ll share each other’s passions, but not until then.”

He walked out of the room, leaving Xavier completely unsatisfied.

Payback can sure be a bitch. Xavier thought as he remembered interrupting Darian’s seduction of Annette earlier.


I thought this book was well written, but initially I had a difficult time as the story jumped between several characters that appeared to be totally unrelated to one another except in peripheral ways, such as one person’s friend working at a night club frequented by another’s love interest.  Eventually it all came together and all parties were introduced to each other and it became cohesive.

This is a romantic paranormal vampire, shifter, seer murder mystery.  I loved how all the elements came together to form a story.  I just wish it has been more joined from the beginning.

I give this book 4 out of  5 clouds.
