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

4.5 'My mate. My hellion. Mine.' stars!!!

I had a feeling I'd like this one more than I did the first book - which I liked just fine - and I was right! There was something a little rougher, a little sexier, and a little more broken about Amaury, and that called to my need to fix his damaged soul, to bring him home and love him all better...or until neither of us would be walking for days! ;)

Next up.... Gabriel's story. I'm not sure how I feel about him, but I can't wait to find out!!

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

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 (

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.

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

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...

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.

I enjoyed it, but definitely not as much as the first book. I felt the sub plot (Luther) was quite weak, and I found Nina annoying - she was all over the place, which I found draining. Amaury became a total sap for Nina, which caused me some acid reflux.

But I like the format of these books, and they're very readable. I'm looking forward to the third book, which I'm reliably informed is good, so bring it on!

Amaury LeSang has been a vampire since the 17th Century when he was cursed to feel the emotions of everyone around him. Sex is the only way to get momentary respite, so of course Amaury has sex and lot of it.

One day Amaury was tracked by a woman, Nina the wannabe slayer, and Amaury realizes he can't feel her emotions. How nice to be around someone and not be assaulted by their inner turmoil. Nina is determined to kill all vampires as she blames them for the murder of her brother. Amaur

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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, months...do not judge me lol.

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

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".

La historia en sí está bien, pero sentí que siempre fue obvio cómo iba a concluir y la autora no hacía más que estirar las cosas de forma no muy creativa para meterle más relleno.
Son libros muy básicos y sin embargo tienen algo que me cae simpático. No me veo comprando los siguientes, pero si la autora los sigue poniendo gratis en Amazon seguro los leo :P

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 read...plus 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

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

What I enjoy most is the quirkiness you'll find in the Scanguard books. There are little odds and ends quips that make me laugh when reading these. I'm a sucker for an arrogant man and Amaury definitely fit the bill. While there's not a lot of new material you can do with PNR, these are still entertaining reads. I recommend these for anyone who likes PNR.

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
