Demonica: Pleasure Unbound - Larissa Ione

I've got a book rec for you today - Pleasure Unbound is the start of a new series by Larissa Ione set in Underworld General Hospital. I was lucky enough to read an advanced copy and thoroughly enjoyed it, so here I am, adding to your tbr pile. *g* This book is dark, sexy and takes place in a very unique world - totally recommended :)

Here's the blurb (you can read an except on Larissa's site). The book releases next week.

In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life…

She’s a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure—but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.

Two lovers will dare to risk all.

Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his desire to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable—and let Tayla possess him, body and soul…

Your turn to add to my tbr pile. I've got a few new releases on it already, and I'm anxiously awaiting Cry Wolf by Patricia Briggs. What's on your reading list?

I currently have 161 books in my TBR pile, but there is always room for more! I am eagerly awaiting the following books over the next couple of months:

* Eve Vaughn: Mistress to the Beast
* Suzanne Enoch: After The Kiss
* Angela Knight: Time Hunters: Warrior
* Gena Showalter: The Darkest Pleasure
* Kathryn Smith: Let the Night Begin
* Lora Leigh, Cherry Adair anthology: Rescue Me
* Melissa Schroeder: A Little Harmless Obsession
* Naomi Novik: Victory of Eagles
* Suzanne Brockmann: Into The Fire
* Suzanne Enoch: Before The Scandal
* Patricia Briggs: Cry Wolf

Will definitely keep my eye out for Pleasure Unbound - I love Larissa Ione and Stephanie Tyler's Sydney Croft ACRO series!

I have a huge TBR list...at last count it has 290 books on it. But I just added Lynda Hilburn's The Vampire Shrink and Sharon Page's Blood Rose (although I did find out there is a book before this one - Blood Red.

I loved Pleasure Unbound! I think it's one of the better books put out recently.

My tbr is now at 800+ (I just recently purged about 100 books from it) and it's hard to choose any at all lol I just recently read The Darkest Kiss by Gena Showalter. I really liked it, it was better then the first that I was feeling so so about. I can't wait for the next one now.

I just finished this book yesterday and it was amazing!!

It's always hard to decide what to read after you read a good book. So I haven't decided yet. LOL

Thank you, Nalini!!! I actually was planning to email you this week! I need your address! *g*

Shellbell--I'm so glad you love the ACRO series! Steph and I have so much fun with those. Working on book 4 now!

Ashley, I'm blushing! *g*

The top of my TBR pile is Mercedes Lackey's Snow Queen. But for anybody looking for some good non-fiction a few that just came out of my TBR are:

*Matthew Bogdonos: Thieves of Baghdad
*Jennifer 8 Lee: The Fortune Cookie Chronicles
*Georgina Howell: Gertrude Bell: Queen of the Desert, Shaper of Nations

And Joanna Bourne's next book My Lord and Spymaster will be coming soon. I;m looking forward to that.

And since I've started playing with Shelfari my TBR stack has never been so organized.

Your blog is not long enough to list my TBR Pile. But Larissa Iona's book is on it!
But the one book I am salivating for is Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer!

Now i've moved back home, all my books are in boxes (unpacking takes me forever; an unfortunate symptom of laziness). Without a shelf to look at, my memory has deserted me in trying to recall the books i've bought. Hmm...I have more arriving from Amazon soon, though. I finally gave in and read "Twilight", and now i'm completely hooked(!!), so i'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I think I ordered the first book in the Mercy Thompson series too, and now i've just ordered Pleasure Unbound. You ladies are terrible for my bank balance. *g*

I've just discovered the joys of Shelfari, so once i'm all unpacked, some sense of order should emerge...hopefully.

And just when my TBR was under 50 along come another one to add to the list :) Such a shame :)

I think the three books that I am really hanging out for are Hostage to Pleasure (yes, I know, 10 weeks and 6 days to go, but who's counting :), Cry Wolf and Lover Enshrined. Nope, I still haven't got my hands on it yet, but one day....

Ashley, you have 800 books on your TBR list? GULP! WOW!


Nalini Singh said...

Oooh, some good book recs here. I'm behind on a couple of series, so I need to catch up so I can read these new ones!

Christine said...

I've read the online excerpts for Larissa's new series and was immediately hooked! I can't wait to get this one next week! I'll be picking up Kathryn Smith's Let the Night Begin and Marjorie Liu's The Iron Hunt next week, too! Lots of good reads ahead!

I have an ARC of Eve Kenin's upcoming release, Hidden that I'll be reading and reviewing this weekend. Then I have about fifteen other book releases for July and August on my reading wish list! Yikes! O_O

The TBR is too tall to list. But currently I'm working on The Sons of Destiny Series by Jean Johnson. The Sword and The Wolf were fantastic so I'm looking forward to the rest.

So glad I decided to catch up on your blog today.

Will definitely be picking up Pleasure Unbound. :)
