She has an amazing way of bring heat, passion, fierceness, and funny into everything she writes or collaborates on (Hello, Sydney Croft!!). She is current and sassy without sounding fake or contrived. I noticed more gore (yay!) in Immortal Rider and I was happy to see some of the Demonica Series cameos.
(view spoiler)[Limos is a kick-ass kick in the pants. She is devious, demonic, and lonely. Arik treats her like no one has, like a woman. She has long since changed her devilish ways but is paying for them now. Arik is by her side through it all and she soon realizes that she has missed out on that and craves more.
Arik, oh hunky military man!! I could see all yummy in camos and a machine gun (a la Rambo). He has demons of his own and, in fact, has a "gift" he inadvertently ended up with when he survived a demon bit in the Demonica Series. The part where he is trapped in Sheoul is so engaging and gruesome. His endurance in the most extreme circumstance was motiving! With a little help from his "friends" (aka Tavin) he escapes and is on his path to finding Limos. The nicknames he come up with to refer to Limos are funny! The ones I can remember off the top of my head are My Little Pony and Flicka!
Oh, and the side story of Than and Regan, wow! Go Regan, who wouldn't want a piece of that. Oh, but he said NO! I really got weirded out by that scene. I'm not sure if that was necessary to the story. Maybe in his lust filled haze he screams NO in his head only he thinks it's out loud. Besides that part, I can not wait for Lethal Rider!! A horseman baby, how cool! (hide spoiler)]
Overall a fantastic read. Ione never fails to draw me in and make me crave more. Larissa Ione is the best paranormal romance author I have ever read. She has the best all around book with a perfect mix of gore, grit, romance, sex, and fantasy. She has the uncanny ability to draw you in and make you apart of the world she has created and if you’ve read any of my reviews, that is my most treasured part of read. I crave her books and devour them in one sitting. I will get in line for all of her book without fail! Thank you, Larissa Ione!! Keep it up because we're reading what your writing!
This was great, kept me intrigued the whole time. I figured what the situation was early on but there were twists and turns that I did no...moreBravo, Tina!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. My first read by Ms. DePaul and I REALLY REALLY hope she writes a book for Max and Melina's friends.
The attraction bet...moreI thoroughly enjoyed this book. My first read by Ms. DePaul and I REALLY REALLY hope she writes a book for Max and Melina's friends.
The attraction between Rhys and Melina is intreging from the jump and I could not wait to see how their relationship progressed from childhood friends to HEA. And who knew magicians could be smokin' hot and not Chris Angel wierd or gay? And twins . . . SOLD! I was never disappointed by clichés even though this general friends-to-lovers plot has been explored many times. This Magic Moment was such a breath of fresh air, I bought A Vampire's Salvation (A Vampire Romance) and will read ASAP.
Thank you Larissa Ione for featuring Virna de Paul on your blog, she's on my radar!
And Virna, please don't forget about Max, I want more!!(less)
Loved it! I began hating Travis and slowed loved him a whole bunch! Lily's transformation was awesome and the best friend/lover plot is so much fun! E...moreLoved it! I began hating Travis and slowed loved him a whole bunch! Lily's transformation was awesome and the best friend/lover plot is so much fun! Especially when you throw in twins. Yum! Can wait to read Love Me!!!(less)
OK, so there a few reasons I am in love with this book and will admittedly be a little biased:
- I love football! All kinds, PeeWee, Powder Puff, High School, College, Pros. I come from a huge football family. My favorite player is Joe Montana, and the 49ers will be my team until the day I die. So, football in San Francisco is so much fun to read about. And the fictional team in the book actually had a great season, GO SABERS!!
- I was born and raised in the East Bay and met my husband in Concord! How cool is that! Lots of books I've read are based out of San Francisco, but none so close to home.
- I was one of those girls who dreamed about dating the star quarterback. My adolescent fairytale come true.
I begurdingly paid the $9.99 kindle price (ouch!) hoping my love for football & romance would prevail and they did. I've found a new author! I've found a new author! I am going to go get more Jaci Burton books (hopefully less expensive) and read to my hearts content. If you want a great love story and steamy bedroom (and beach) scenes, pay the $10, you will not be disappointed!(less)
