Taken By Desire is book one in the Demonic Desires series by Valerie Twombly. What a marvelous start to an enchanting mysterious world, full of sexy demons, a lost city, and species at war.


I had the privilege of being a Beta Reader for the very first time with Taken By Desire. I never expected to see such a difference from beta to finish, but it was amazing to see how the novel turned out.


Taken By Desire enthralled me from beginning to end. The author does a wonderful job showcasing the different types of demons and what makes them either good or bad. The story flows at a nice steady pace. The plot is deeper then we suspect and a few surprises are thrown in along the way.


Our leads Aimee and Greydon, complemented each other. They both have strength, courage, and compassion. There romance was a nice sweet burn and once they succumb to their mutual attraction, the sensual scenes are hot and steamy. I loved the secondary characters, especially Fang. We also meet Bethany, Aimee’s best friend, and one of the other Demon Princes. I can’t wait to be introduced to more characters and to read about Fang and Bethany’s romance.


If you enjoy reading about sexy demons, going on a magical quest, and finding ones mate, then Demonic Desires is for you. I can’t wait for more in this series.
