Barbas, the Demon of Healing, has a secret. One he'd do anything to keep. Until the day that he meets his sworn enemy and finds himself drawn into her world. Certainly a Demon strong enough to survive being chained for a millennium beneath the Earth's crust can resist one virginal princess when she demands his help. To reveal the truth would make him a traitor to his peopl ...more

Seriously, there has to be more..this cannot be the last book.

I liked this one too, finding out he's a hybrid and then he bangs a fae? Her father has a pass that I must read, I hope to goodness Ms. Alder writes the other ones quick.

I like novellas, quick and to the point, some might say the had sex too quickly, ummm they are demons and fae..that is what they do..have sex. lol..sometimes however, I want more.
This one made me want more, there was no closure, it was just left open. I NEED to know t
OK - this is a cover that I vote #1 for the top covers I have ever seen. HOT doesn't begin to describe the effect this guy has on me.

Aside from the cover, this is a good little light-erotic romance novella.

I think I am disappointed that the author left us hanging in the ongoing story arc across this Demons Unleashed series, so we don't know what happens with any of the couples in the previous books or this one, what happens in the Demons vs Fae conflict, and so on.

So, Lisa Alder, I am hoping yo

3.5 stars. Whilst I didn't enjoy this book as much as the other 3, it was still a good read.

Shame that there appears to be no more in the series as I would like to read more stories in this world and how/if the war will end.

Love this series

Barbas the demon basket is tasked with finding the fae soy, but finds love with Aine, a fae princess, instead. They struggle to admit the truth to each other, and the hot steamy fun along the way, makes the journey quite interesting.

What a fantastic twist to the Demons Unleashed series. Of the other three, this was my favorite. I loved the heat and passion between them. I need the next book in this series
I saw the blurb on this futuristic paranormal erotic romance and just had to give this new-to-me author and her series a try. Normally, I'm a big proponent of reading a series in order and I think that is a good idea with this series, but that being said I was able read and enjoy this story just fine.

Barbas, the demon of healing, along with his fellow demons are in an immortal battle with the fae who locked their kind away for thousands of years before their recent powerful escape from the lower

I read the stories in this series back to back and it made for one heck of a ride. For a novella, Adler got a big bang out of so few words. This is my absolute favorite story in the series. It's always good to see the other side of the conflict and with Demons taking up space on the first three stories, it's only fair that it's time for the Fae to have their say.

Full of secrets, Barbas - the Demon of Healing, will give and do most anything to keep them. But there comes a time when he decides tha

I was given this book by the publishers in return for an honest review.

I have not read the previous 3 books in this series, but the author did a good job of introducing us to the storyline. The grand plot I believe is a truce between the two races, the Demons and the Fae. In order to find a spy, the Demon Barbas uses his secret ancestry to try and infiltrate the Fae, but ends up falling heads over heels for the Fae princess instead, leaving him torn between his duties and his heart.

Again, I thi

Barbas has a secret to keep and Aine need someone who can see her. Sometimes things are not as they seems, as is this case. Each one fall in love for the other and finally have a decision to make which may change the future. I loved Barbas alpha protection for Aine and Aine warrior side to protect Barbas.

I have LOVED this series. Short, sweet and incredible sexy, the stories give just enough world building to make for an interesting story line as well. Aine and Barbas are sizzling hot together and along with the necessary complications with their unlikely relationship it just makes for a good read.
I wish there were more books in this series.

I got this book in a boxed set and as I detest stories re vampires, shifters, thrillers etc, I will not be reading or rating it. No offense intended.

Finally finished this. Good read. Steamy sex, decent story. I would have liked a little more detail in one part, but otherwise, very satisfying.
