Book Blurb:
Pleasure is their ultimate weapon . . .

Runa Wagner never meant to fall in love with the sexy stranger who seemed to know her every deepest desire. But she couldn't resist the unbelievable passion that burned between them, a passion that died when she discovered his betrayal and found herself forever changed. Now, determined to make Shade pay for the transformation that haunts her, Runa searches for him, only to be taken prisoner by his darkest enemy.

A Seminus Demon with a love-curse that threatens him with eternal torment, Shade hoped he'd seen the last of Runa and her irresistible charm. But when he wakes up in a dank dungeon chained next to an enraged and mysteriously powerful Runa, he realizes that her effect on him is more dangerous than ever.

As their captor casts a spell that bonds them as lifemates, Shade and Runa must fight for their lives and their hearts-or succumb to a madman's evil plans.

My thoughts:
Shade is a Seminus Demon who, along with his brothers, runs a hospital that specializes in those who are other than human. His nature, as well as a curse, causes him to be a love them and leave them kind of guy. One woman through the years got under his skin, and he’s about to realize that she never really left.

Runa Wagner blames Shade for the attack she survived, and for what she’s become. Now trapped and held in a dungeon by someone out to destroy Shade and his brothers, they find themselves bound together in a way that only death may be able change.

This is the second book in the Demonica trilogy and centers around Shade and Runa. Ms. Ione adds many twists and turns to her demon filled world that shock and delight in equal measure. The relationships are steamy and the secondary characters help to enrich the storyline. Desire Unchained is a captivating read with the love and support shown between brothers, and should appeal to readers who enjoy sizzling romance with their fantasy.
