Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later.
As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise.
Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss…or to kill.
“What are you doing?” His dark, classic suit was smoothed, ironed to perfection, and if someone had told her he was a demon, she would have laughed. He looked far too good in a suit.
“Uh, I was just waiting for you,” she stammered.
He cocked a brow. “Waiting for me?”
She hummed an answer, too nervous to speak. “Are you, uh, heading out?” She eyed his three-piece suit.
His relaxed posture turned to steel. “A work matter.” Grey eyes scanned her damp hair and she drew in a deep breath at the incredible sensation he made her feel. Stop it. “I don’t have to go right away. The people there”—he visibly swallowed—“aren’t as entertaining as you.”
Her heart soared and quickly plummeted. Do not allow him to suck you in—ugh, don’t use the word ‘suck’. The edge of the scissors’ blade dug into her palm.
With a smile, Tensley stepped closer until he was towering over her petite figure. He eyed her with curiosity. “What are you hiding?”
Molly’s heart thudded, her grip loosening on the scissors from perspiration.
A corner of his lips quirked. “What are you hiding behind your back, Ms. Darling?” He reached a hand out to grasp her wrist.
She panicked and without thinking, sliced through his shirt.
am a fan of paranormal romance since I’ve been reading there has always
had to have some fantasy or paranormal aspect to it. This is also
exactly why I requested this book.
is utterly unique. Although with have a world filled with demons but
not your usual demons though there is a twist. We have a dash of Greek
Mythology with some sweet and for me personally some annoying moments.
As a debut novel I can see Ms. Scarlett going
places. But I’ll give it to you straight I’m picky when it comes to
books and not everything can be to my liking or my tastes.
very long time ago a contract was signed for the protection of the
Darling’s daughter has she had special abilities. Luck was not on the
Darlings side. But as the contract was binding and it had been signed in
blood there was no other way around it. A contract
signed with the demons. But that girl with the special abilities hasn’t
turned up until now.
don’t forget a contract and they don’t forget a debt. Our heroine Molly
Darling has been promised to our Hero Tensley Knight. Molly has the

is merely a pawn in this game and she hasn’t got a full grasp of her powers yet.
first twenty percent of the book was hard to get into
but then it started to pick up. But in saying that Molly ruined the
book for me. Now I don’t expect my heroines to be kick arse from the
beginning but she was just too naive and has no sense of self
preservation. There were times I just wanted to smack her.
Knight is a cruel and ruthless demon, well sometimes any way and he is
trying to make amends for the mistakes his brother made. But he is also
sexy and mysterious. He can’t afford to get wrapped up in a daemon or a
human as it is fatal for their race. The
demons have no heart and falling in love can cost them everything.
didn’t like them together at all. I get the whole working against him
thing from Molly but dude if you aren’t interested then move on.
Especially when you’re not officially on break with your demon skanky
I didn’t feel anything negative or positive for Tensley. He is just there and I don’t get him. At. All.
I love September & Illya but this book
had more of a YA feel to it then a NA feel. And YA isn’t really for me.
