Amaury's Hellion is book two in Tina Folsom's Scanguards Vampires series. I read book one quite some time ago and remembered liking it. I am glad that I decided to pick up this series once again. I really did end up enjoying this second installment.

Amaury LeSang is a vampire with a "gift", although he considers it more a curse. A tragedy in his past led to him being able to sense the emotions of others. While some may consider this "gift" something to be envied, for Amaury it is nothing but pain...more

Let me tell you a story...

There was this guy, let's name him Amaury.

What? Ah...You want a visual too. Ok..See?

And guess what this gorgeous, big, bad vampire could do(I told he was a vampire, didn't I?). Yeap, you guessed right, he could read everyone's emotions and it was mighty painful for him, the only thing he could do to take the pain away was have sex(wish that took my migraines away too). Then one day he crossed paths with a little wannabe-vamp slayer, let's name her Nina... Oh you want a...more

It has taken me a while to collect all the books in this series but I have now finally got them all!......I haven't got a great deal of time but think that it is only fair that I leave a review even if it is only a small one.

This series is a bit different that what I am used to in PNR, but then I think that I like that and it has kept my interest. The sex scenes are very steamy and extremely well written and is guaranteed to get your motor revving! For me this was better than the first (...more
Is it just me, or is there a formula out there for these Tortured Vampire Series? It's likes somewhere out there, there's a checklist authors use.

Group must have a hardened, cynical leader, who deep down has a heart of gold.
***IMPORTANT*** Must have a womanizing, sex crazed member who deep down is a hopeless romantic, but has given up on love due to all the mindless sex he's forced to have thanks to a curse.
Group must also have an insane, somewhat disfigured, but still ridiculously good looking

I'm the author of this book.
Amaury's Hellion was book#2 of the Scanguards series and I couldn't put it down. I love Folsom's style of writing. Amaury is a vampire cursed to never experience love and to also feel the pain of everyone's emeotions around him. He finds that sexual release is his only relief from the pain, but only a brief relief. When Amaury falls for vampire slayer, Nina, he finds total peace from the pain while in her presence. Nina is a fiesty heroine that is determined to kill Amaury in order to avenge her...more

I'm torn on rating this one. Going for 3.5 stars.

I've read some really good books lately, and this one was only okay. I liked it enough, and I will continue the series, but I don't feel like it's anything to write home about.

The plot:
Continuing where we left off, Amaury, one of the Scanguard Vampire crew has always been plagued by being able to sense everyone's emotions. It also causes him huge migraines. The only way he can find relief (in more ways that one... heh heh heh) is by having sex wi...more
Amaury has a 'gift' where he can sense emotions of the people around him both human and vampire, but after a few hundred years the gift has become his curse as he battles with the pressure in his mind. To relieve the pressure the only way he has found he can is through the relief of sex! And lots of it with any female willing partner...

Nina a feisty woman is looking for revenge on the vampire that killed her brother Eddie and she believes Amaury is responsible. She goes looking for to take him o...more

3 1/2 stars.

I'm really liking this series. The characters, focal and secondary, are what make these books so delightful. It's impossible not to love each one of them.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot. Not as much as the first book Samson's Lovely Mortal, but I was still laughing and fanning myself during most of this story. And Amaury... he's one sexy vampire, for sure.

I'm very much looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

Ooooohh another hot and sexy book from Tina Folsom!! Loved it!! This is the second book in Tina Folsom's Scanguard series and its a whopper!! ;)

In book one, we meet a whole assortment of characters. Amaury LeSang was one of them and he has garnered his own book here in book 2. He is one sexy beast!!!! He's a vampire and in this world, some vampires have special gifts. Amaury is one of those vampires. His gift is that he can sense the emotions of others. Its sounds like a pretty cool gift; pretty...more
Amaury's Hellion is the 2nd book in the Scanguards series. The story was well conceived, the characters are interesting, and vamp rules are pretty straight forward.

I loved Amaury's character and I even enjoyed Nina more than I expected. Amaury has been cursed to never love and to be tormented by the emotions of others. He has existed this way for 400 years. He is a partner in Scanguards, a vampire owned security firm that is now under investigation because 2 human guards killed their clients and...more

This book is a lot of fun! It has much better pacing and editing than the previous book in the series. When I was getting ready to read it, I had thought that Amaury might be a big, um, rough, based on his rather infamous scene in the first book, but he was extremely sweet. It isn't what you would see in a Harlequin, but anyone expecting Joey Hill level BDSM hijinx should read something else. Maybe a Joey Hill book. That being said, this book was super smexy- way more than others in this genre.

The premise was great—a vampire that can feel emotions of those around him, a constant onslaught that brings him pain (one emotion is particularly painful—love, since he's been cursed never to feel love himself), when he meets the only woman whose emotions he cannot read.
I know, right.

Unfortunately that only woman whose emotions poor Amaury could not read turned out to be a hot-and-cold-running, vampire-slayer-wannabe, caustic little bitch. I hated her with a passion, which resulted in me not pa...more

My opinion of an excellent book is when you read the story and it plays out in your head. You can see the characters in your head, you have a picture of what their surroundings look like, you feel what they feel, and most importantly when you are done you are left with an empty feeling like "Now what?!?". If you are like me you might even obsess over it for several days, weeks, not judge me lol.

Ok - the book was HOT HOT HOT! There were sections I felt like I needed to cover my eyes,...more
Second book in the Scansguards Series - 3 Stars.

The story of Amaury and his curse is very intrigueing and through the beginning I felt so sad for him. Amaury is cursed to feel the emotion of those around him, feelings that pound through his head and cause him pain. I enjoyed learning about his past and experiencing his interactions through this "emotional translation".
Nina is our angry herroine, she's on a mission to destroy vampires because she believes them to be behind her brothers death. T...more

I'm so loving this series of books !! They have the right combination of action, drama, adventure and heat. And my the heat is hot hot hot !!

We were first introduced to Amaury in Samson's Lovely Mortal, he is Samson's best friend and business partner and also a centuries old vampire. Amaury has a curse which is that he can feel the emotions of others this leaves him in permanent migraine like pain. The only way...more
I am really enjoying this series. Loved Amaury from the first book. The author's subtle humor, unique world, and intriguing characters made this an enjoyable it's scorching hot! Drake, the vampire psychiatrist, is back analyzing this problematic group of vampires. Great fun, lots of dialogue, but again as in the first book, the ending just feels so abrupt and somewhat unresolved. A huge event takes place towards the end of the book and then it's a rush to the finish. It could have us...more
Angie ~aka Reading Machine~
Amaury LeSang's gift or curse in his case to feel both human's and vampire's emotions is constant ache or migraine. Amaury only gets peace thru sex but sometimes it's not enough. Scanguards's bodyguards have recently killed two people which is one too many as far as Samson is concerned. Nina Martens wants revenge against vampires and doesn't really care how she gets it at this point. Nina crosses paths with Amaury but doesn't expect what happens between them to set up a chain reaction of events...more

Amaury's Hellion - 3.75 stars

I liked Amaury's Hellion almost as much as I liked Samson's Lovely Mortal. Amaury is a well written book, with a pretty solid storyline, the characters are mostly likeable and somewhat believable, and well edited with very few typos. For that reason, I rounded my rating up to 4 stars.

While the Hero, Amaury, appears to be a bit rough around the edges, he's a good man with a gentle soul. When it comes to handling women, he tends to be stuck in the past and doesn't apol...more
Book #2 in the series and I'm still loving it! I love Amaury and he makes me laugh so much! And he's definitely met his match with Nina!

Amaury has the "gift" of being able to sense the feelings and emotions of the people around him. But to him it's really a curse, causing him great pain-giving him migraine-like headaches. He doesn't let his friends know this, he thinks it makes him weak. The only time he has any peace is when he's having sex, so he has sex a lot. His buddies consider him a sex...more
Mrs.Vishous-Kattalakis-Belikov :::Para Itch Reviews:::
I didn't think that I could love this one as much as the first but I was sadly mistaken! Amaury is one sexy vampire who was cursed to never feel love, but sense everyones emotions. That is until he meets the wanna be slayer Nina. I really loved this concept and also connected with the characters. Nina is one tough cookie and willing to do anything for those she loves. Nina's little bro Eddie was an employee for Scanguards and was believed to have killed himself and the one he was protecting. Nei...more

Loved loved LOVED Amaury's story.! He is, so far, my favorite. He is just, awesome. And he fell so hard for Nina, it was just so damn sweet. This is 5 stars for two reasons: 1) Amaury. and (2) I have to buy the third in the series.

Now, there is one issue I had, which made me have to go back and re-read a section (two actually) a few times. But I'm still confused. (view spoiler)...more

Amaury's Hellion is the second book in Tina Folsom's fantastic Scanguards Vampires series. This paranormal Erotic Romance is SMOKIN' HOT! Or is that just Amaury? 'Cause that man is so hot that he's on fire! But I'll get back to him in a minute...

This book is another awesome piece of work by Tina Folsom. I love all the characters in the world of the Scanguards Vampires. We first met the gang in Samson's Lovely Mortal.

Reread Nov 20, 2013 on audiobook. Did not like the narrator. Was male and made all the women sound like little old ladies. I found it really annoying. Same narractor as the first book but I thought I would give him another try...and nope. I will not finish listening to this series. I recommend you stick with the books and the voices in your heads.

More of a 2.5.

Amaury's Hellion is the second installment in the Scanguards Vampires series by Tina Folsom. Like its predecessor, Samson's Lovely Mortal, it's very heavy on the sexytimes and lovey-dovey romance.

This should come as no surprise to anyone who read the first book, since this story centers around 400-year-old French vampire Amaury Lesang. When we were first introduced to Amaury, Samson's best friend and #2 guy in the Scanguards San Francisco office, it was kind of hinted at that he...more

Amaury LeSang works at Scanguards (a successful security and body guard company owned by Samson Woodford) taking care of the real estate side of the business and is Samson’s best friend. He also lives with the painful curse of sensing other’s emotions but never being able to feel love himself. The only cure for the constant onslaught is sex, daily, and it is only a temporary reprieve. So Amaury has become quiet known in the vampire world for his sexual exploits. And he’s only a little bit arroga...more

This second book in the series was fair, slightly better than book one, which was Samson's Lovely Mortal.

This is Amaury's story and I have wanted to know about what made Amaury tick since reading half way through book one. Amaury's curse explains a lot about his behavior and makes him delightfully flawed, as well as delightfully errotic. I will take a dash of Amaury to go please. Amaury is a pompous jerk most of the time, but he is worth the read. Nina was a great match for him. She's tough and...more
 ~*~Princess Nhya~*~
I only give 2 stars with this 2nd installment of this series because the plot was a bit more interesting than the relationship and chemistry between the main characters Amaury and Nina. In the 1st book Amaury was hard core you could tell. I thought that his story would depict him more in that light but it did not. Something was just missing. Nina just got on my nerves, with things that were so obvious she seemed so dense in figuring them out. I mean really how are you a street kid growing up rai...more
I like this series. It's light enough that I don't feel like my head's going to explode as I read it and yet it ends up being immensely satisfying in its own way. I mean, I pick it up expecting vampires and hot sex and I get exactly that. Plus, there's this whole plot thing going on. I know! Who knew? Vampires do more than just have sex! Look, I'm as shocked by this as much as the next person. Yet, I find it strangely invigorating.

♥The Kat's Meow♥
Amaury's Hellion (Scanguards Vampires, #2) by Tina Folsom Big, strong, sexy vampire… sees a shrink? I can imagine if one has lived a couple of centuries or so one might have issues. And what a day! First, another employee murders the client he’s guarding, mix vigorously the fact that he feels others emotions, then sprinkle a tall would-be slayer with a mop of short curly blond hair into the mix—geesh. It’s enough to give one a migraine.

The mostly un-educated and street-savvy Nina spoke a little too well. She made connections with a leap of logic tha...more
