Desiderus has served Ba’al faithfully for nearly one hundred years. When Haven Rowe put a gun to his head and pulled the trigger, her fierce nature stirred emotions he hadn’t felt since before Ba’al claimed him. With his sight set on consuming her body and soul, he’ll use every deceptive idea at his disposal to make sure she belongs to him.
When Haven walked in on a demon stealing her brother, Jeremy, her entire world unraveled. Born to a family of magic users, yet unable to use magic of her own, Haven will do anything to get her brother back from the depths of hell, even if it means she has to bargain her soul.
With the help of a witch, Haven seeks out loopholes to the soul bargains that have been made. She either finds a way out for her and Jeremy, or they both might be lost forever. What she doesn’t count on is the betrayal of her own body and the insurmountable attraction she has for the demon she’s trying to escape.
Review: Readers who enjoy their paranormal stories with a hot and spicy erotic twist will certainly enjoy Decadent Kane’s new Impure series.
In Impure Bargains, Haven and Desiderus are introduced. From the beginning, it was evident that these two characters both had plenty of spunk. Haven, who is no stranger to the underworld, is determined to rescue her brother, even if it means making a deal with a demon. She’s mouthy, but a perfect mix for Desiderus who is not your average demon by a long shot.
With witches, magic birds and even a derelimpiticus, this paranormal erotic tale is a romp through the dark side, complete with some panty-melting scenes. Readers should be forewarned that there is a cliffhanger guaranteed to ensure an immediate desire for the next installment.
I was completely immersed in the author’s world from the beginning. With a solid storyline, interesting characters and snappy dialog, this was a fantastic paranormal read. It was a far cry from the typical shapeshifter storyline common to the genre. Instead, it’s a world where “bad” is a relative term. Are all demons supposed to be “bad” or can there be levels of badness?
It’s a classic tale of good vs. evil with a twist that only this author can provide. Take a twisted trip into a world where magic is common and the seven deadly sins are more than just mythical concepts. When Haven and Desiderus give in to temptation, it’s sizzling.
As the first story in the series, Impure Bargains has set a strong foundation for future stories. For those of us who suffer from cliffhangers, this one is a doozy.
