Desires UnleashedDesires Unleashed (Knights of the Darkness Chronicles Book One)

Desires Unleashed is the first novel in the riveting, highly-addictive and sexually-charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. Experience the heart-pounding thrill of the chase in this electrifying page-turner as you uncover the mystery behind the series of gruesome killings that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.

When a grisly decapitated corpse pops up on a Chicago Street, drained of blood, the highly-trained, government-funded special police force assigned two of their best detectives to the case. S.U.I.T. Detectives Warren Davis and Matthew Eric delve deep into their investigation to discover just who or what is leaving mutilated bodies in public places. They soon realize that the killer or killers is one step ahead of them and if they are going to stop the menace before another innocent human is viciously attack, they are going to need help.

Natasha Hemingway liked her life just the way it was… normal and supernatural-free. The vampires and shape-shifters were just where shewanted them to be–far away from her. All was going well until an unfortunate accident landed her in the hospital. It was then that she discovered she had an ability that could help her save countless lives. All of a sudden, she finds herself thrust into the dangerous and alluring world of the supernatural and into the arms of two very sexy and deadly vampires.

Original, gritty and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor and wit, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take you for a ride you won’t forget. You don’t want to miss out on this amazing series!

My review:

Based in one of my favorite cities, Chicago, this story takes us to a reality where not only are supernaturals known, they are governed and have their own set of laws. The humans hold great prejudice and the supes are bitter about humans thinking they are powerful enough to control them. There are 4 main sets of characters whose stories you follow at a break neck pace. 3 sets are supes and the third are seemingly human.

There is a ton of romance. Supe on supe, human and supe, guy on guy etc. it was my first time reading anything with descriptive guy on guy romance. My friend at Identity Discovery described my feelings from the book exactly (great minds think alike) :

I have not read anything that had actual guy on guy content previously, but this book is pretty full of it. It was eye opening for me. I can’t say I was crazy about it because I prefer to think that my supernatural men will actually want me more than their best guy friend. However, this was very well written and if you are into that sort of thing, you will love it.

While it was shocking, it didn’t distract from the story which was very good! I really liked the character development , the sarcastic humor and the shameless flirting between pretty much every character. I am rooting for Xavier and Natasha. I hope Darian doesn’t put a wedge in their budding relationship.
