Excellent read!  I highly recommend this book.  It's a great start to what is sure to be an excellent series! Can't wait till book 2 :) the writer is  creative and keeps u wrap up in the story.  Lucas is a wonderful sexy hero; while Jenna is a no nonsense kind of girl that doesn't really need a hero.  The supporting characters are well developed and I look forward to reading more about Cain, Jacob, and the entire demon world.  Like I said great read :)

Her entire world was turned upside down. She knew nothing of vampires and demons, angels and werewolves. She was his fated mate and he knew it from the moment he caught her scent. Circumstances bring together what fate have deemed to be. There is danger out there and sisters to find. He will stop at nothing to bring them all safely together for his mate. But there are others who wish them harm and this author is going to make us work through some good reading to get to the answer. While this is a great story there is an overload of information which detracts from the story and makes it somewhat choppy. It seems the guys may be clones because they all have similar descriptions. There is plenty of steam but none of this will stop me from moving on to the next book in the series. They are standalones however there is a storyline that appears to cross over, as well as characters.

DEMON KING'S DESIRE surprised me because it wasn't really what I expected of a typical paranormal romance. The author engages in some thorough and complex world-building. Her takes on the different races and how they interact is really interesting and I loved the amount of consideration that went into the development of her mythology. I found the start of the book to be a bumpy ride because a little too much back story is doled out too quickly. The same with the fairly large cast of characters, which I felt could have been introduced more incrementally given the fact this is a full length novel. The story does settle down after the initial bout of bucking and flows more smoothly from there. I feel it's necessary to make my standard disclaimer--I don't like Fated Mates. For me, FM slays romantic tension before it's even out of the gate. I want love to be the product of free will, not preordained and inescapable. That said, I did appreciate the author's playfulness in forcing Lucas to court Jenna (who he believes is mortal and may reject him). The chemistry between the hero and heroine is good and love scenes are hot. Lucas, the hero, didn't really fit with my preconception of what a demon should be but that's more than okay. I love being surprised. His romantic quandary is amusing and it helped balance out the overly possessive side of his personality. I enjoyed his buddy relationship with his friend and fellow demon, Cain, who is played for some refreshing comic relief. Cain definitely made me laugh. I really disliked the fact that Lucas falls for the heroine hook, line and sinker before he even meets her, removing all of the mystery. Of all the characters, I felt Jenna had the most interesting character arc. The heroine demonstrates admirable resilience and courage throughout. Her search for her missing sisters and her growth from a mortal into something more (special) drove the plot. The bad guys (Malum) who don't want her to achieve her genesis provided a menacing element of danger. Action sequences are fast paced and quickly resolved. The plot always carries forward momentum toward something greater. DEMON'S KING'S DESIRE is the first part in the Elemental Sisters, good news for readers who enjoy series, since the second book, BURDENED BY DESIRE, is already available. Happy reading!

When I first started this book, it seemed a little slow going for me. I stayed with it though and was definitely glad that I did. While certain aspects of the story reminded me of the Black Dagger Brotherhood or the Dark Hunter series this book was a story all its own. Not often do you read a book like this where the female lead is so strong that she doesn't rely much on the males. The characters are likable and not way over the top like some can be. I look forward to reading more about Jenna and her sisters in future books as I'm sure their stories should be every bit as good. I would recommend this to those that like books along the same lines as the BDB, Dark Hunter or Midnight Breed series.
