Fang and Bethany. Bethany and Fang. My, oh my. Bethany has been taken by the bad guy who plans on impregnating women, breeding heirs that would have the special DNA code to let him into Oshivana (Atlantis). Unbeknownst to them all, Bethany is already with child. She's a strong and feisty gal that you want to be your best friend. Fang is the king's protector, and a very powerful one. As pieces fall together and bring to light a prophecy, he grows in power, which comes in handy. He's not your typical, unfeeling "I follow orders and have no personality" type of guard. He's sweet, protective, and tears apart legions of demons to find his woman. I just love that about Valerie's alpha-males. They are strong and alpha without being complete jerks all the time, so you fall in love with each and every one of them. There is also a layer of lightness and humor mixed in with the story that I thoroughly enjoyed. Additionally, I think there is a sense of history and importance with the magical city and the way the story gets told. It will keep you captivated like a tale being told by a town elder sitting next to a fire, ensnaring you with ancient legends. I would recommend this to any lover of paranormal romance. The uniqueness of the story-line mixed with the intriguing plot, non-stop action, and lovable characters add up to a series that leaves you begging for more. I voluntarily read this story for review.
Taken By Storm is book two in the Demonic Desires series by Valerie Twombly. We meet Fang and Bethany in Taken By Desire. Fang is the king's right hand man and protector. Bethany is Aimee’s best friend. Things unfold in Taken By Desire and these two come together in Taken By Storm. I feel this series needs to be read in order. It was so nice to finally get Fang and Bethany’s story. Things move fast with a few surprises along the way. The romance was sweet and the sensual scenes are hot and steamy. I like the direction things are going in the series and all the new characters being introduced. The demons of Atlantis are sexy as sin. The war going on is a battle to save a race and more. If you enjoy reading about sexy demons, going on a magical quest, and finding one's mate, then Demonic Desires is for you. I can’t wait for more in this series.
