"Darkness isn't all one shade, sweetheart."
Three centuries ago, Molly Darling’s ancestors signed a contract in blood—daemon blood—to protect themselves from harm. On the eve she turns nineteen, Molly leaves for her birthday party against her parent’s wishes, sick of their warnings about her “betrothal to a demon.”
Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later.
As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise.
Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss...or to kill.
I got this book on Netgalley for an Honest review and it really surprised me, I fell in love with it !
I love supernatural books, and demons and Incubus are one of my favourite, so this was right up my alley.
The writer describes this amazing world in such detail that you feel like you know the characters, and connect with them from the start.
I loved Tensley, I'm a sucker for bad boys with tortured souls and he fitted the bill perfectly.
Molly was a hard character to like at first but when we get to know her a little bit we realise she is stronger than she looks. And it makes sense that she wouldn't know how to react given the mixed signals Tensley threw her way.
The most interesting part of the book is that the whole problem between the main characters resides on the fact that Tensley is scared of getting a whole heart.
It's a romantic concept in my opinion, he was fighting his feelings for her but they were too strong and we get glimpses of what his real self might look like.
That cliffhanger at the end KILLED me I can't wait to find out what happens next, there are so many good and bad possibilities for them in their future.
