If you’re looking for an enthralling, somewhat racy, and exciting read to get you through the winter, you’ll definitely want to check out Desires Unleashed. It has a little bit of everything: vampires, a mystery, serial killers, a smidge of humor, and a few racy scenes that may steam your reading glasses a bit!
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 she wanted 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.
Darian released the little green button and settled comfortably into his chair. When he heard the door open then close, he knew it was Annette. He could smell the blood underneath her skin and feel her pulse beating fast making her body heat rise. Ah yes, Darian loved the heat. Slowly, he turned his chair around to face her. He thought she was beautiful indeed.He could not understand why he had not met her personally before. He would have to have a small talk with Xavier.
He entrusted all of the hiring of the staff to Xavier. He knew Xavier would have the right eye for such beauty. He was sure that Xavier had already bedded Miss Balfour. If he had not, then it was his loss and Darian’s gain. It was one of the aspects of their relationship Darian enjoyed most of all. They had to have an open sexual relationship. He would not have it any other way. Sex was one of Darian’s favorite pastimes. He enjoyed the feeling of hot, sweaty bodies beneath him or behind him. Enjoyed the sensation of heat and ecstasy as it increased until it spilled over their bodies in that one final moment when time would freeze.
He gazed at her caramel colored skin, admiring the smoothness of it. He wanted to feel that smoothness with his fingertips. He liked her permed, straight hair, how it framed her slender oval shaped face. Her lips attracted him as well; he loved how full and luscious they were. He was a lover of both men and women and cherished all of the individual
qualities each offered. His mind raced to what he wanted to do with her before the night was out. A wicked smile spread across his lips, exposing his dimples, making him look both innocent and guilty.
He looked at her entire appearance, mentally calculating the quickest way to remove her clothing based on hooks, zippers, snaps, etc. She was dressed in a leopard print bra top and a black satin skirt with a leopard print hem and was wearing a pair of black heels. Darian admired the way the outfit enveloped her. It was no doubt an outfit designed for the game of seduction. And his club was the perfect place to wear such an ensemble.
Desires Unleashed was exactly what the name stated, and that was what Darian wanted. Whether you had a lust for sex or blood, you could sate your hunger there.
“Miss Balfour, I’ve called you into my office tonight because I have some good news. You see, I’ve been going through my employee records and reviewing some of my best staff.”
He looked in her direction and smiled. He rose from his chair and glided around the desk. All of his movements were as smooth as satin. His body never looked clumsy, never once. He leaned against the corner of his desk in front of Annette. He held her open file in his hand as he looked down at her over the edge of the file and smiled. His eyes sparkled as his
smile warmed her. He slid halfway onto the corner of his desk and pretended to look over her information. He had already memorized her file before she came into his office, but now, he was keeping up appearances.
“It says here that you’ve never been late and only absent one time since you started working here.”
He paused and leaned in closer to her.“Most impressive,” he whispered seductively.
His forest-green eyes peered into the chocolate brown of hers. She felt his aura pelting her, making a heat rise from between her legs. She fought the urge to squirm in her seat. She could smell his cologne, as if he needed any. She was willing to bet he was just as good in bed as he looked and that was saying a lot. She found herself imagining what his strong hands would feel like caressing her skin. She wanted to feel the heat of his mouth on her, and the weight of his body against hers. She had the desire to press her hand to her chest, and, in an exaggerated southern belle accent, say ‘Why sir, I’m just a southern belle and we southern gals don’t do things like- ooooohh, Oh My!’ She mentally shook her head. She wanted to focus on what he was saying to her, even though it was proving to be more difficult with each passing second.
“Did you hear what I said?” Darian asked, humor hidden in his smile. He knew damn well she had not heard a word he’d said; it was just how he planned it. She didn’t need to hear what he was saying. She only needed to know that he was paying her attention, that she had his favor for the evening. She should be so blessed.
“Oh, yeah … Um …,” She took a deep breath and let it out. This was bad.“No. I’m sorry. I didn’t catch the … Um … last thing you said.”
She was hoping he would not think badly of her. Nothing was worse than being condemned as an airhead. Well, there were worse things, but at this point airhead was the one she was worried about. He had obviously called her into his luxurious office for a reason. From the rumors she heard circulating around the club, no one got to see the owner’s office unless they were getting fired or a special promotion. She was hoping it was the latter.
Darian’s chuckle vibrated deep in his throat. He decided to cut to the chase.
