"Demon Fire" is Steamy and Sexy!

Synopis from B&

The thrilling new erotic paranormal romance from the USA Today bestselling author.

Fleeing the routine life her family wanted for her, Beth joins an archaeological dig spearheaded by her cousin Charles. For such an adventurer, the desert city of Bhamjran is perfect for making unusual discoveries-especially when it comes to forbidden appetites. Like his own unnatural desire for a Yama demon. And as he and Beth are about to learn, some Yama find humans equally irresistible...

At first, I was weary about this book; the relationship in the book is between two men and a women. Now, I'm used to reading more erotic type of romances, especially since I have read Emma Holly's books before, and I've come across threesomes many times, but very few times have I read a book where all three of them fall in love and stay together for more than just a night of really intense sex. Demon Fire fits into the latter category, with all three of them 'mating'.

Like all of her other books, Demon Fire is very sexy, very hot and steamy, and very, very explicit. It is not for the faint of heart. But if you like having a good dose of erotica in your romance, then her books, including Demon Fire, are for you. The one thing that I like about her books is that she can combine the romance and erotica together nicely, so that it does not read like a cheap and poorly written porno, like some erotica books I have read before.

I may not 'approve' of the threesome/polygamy theme going on in this book, that is, I would never do that myself, but for simply reading it for pleasure *no pun intended!!*, I can handle it when it it written nicely, such as Holly's books. It was not all about straight sex, but instead a combination of tender love, gut-wrenching feelings, paranormal, and, okay, a heavy dose of passionate, smokin' hot sex. If she had taken out one of those elements, the book would not have been as good as it was.

4.5/5 STARS! A perfect combination of hot sex, tender moments, passionate love, a unique paranormal setting, a touch of adventure/action/suspense, humor... Really, it has everything, and best of all, it's very well written.

Interesting. I don't have a problem with m/m/f combos but...from the blurb it sounds like she's having sex with her cousin. Is that true?

Nope! Her one mate is a demon Prince, her other is more like a 'best friend'. You know, the guy who has grown up with her and had a crush on her all along, but she's never really returned the feelings before? He is the one that she loses her virginity to, actually, and then the Prince 9WHY can't I remember his name right now?!) shows an interest in both of them, and well, the rest is 'history'. :) It is actually a very good book, and I would recommend that you read it!

Oh thank heavens! lol I was beginning to worry a little. Sounds good - thanks chickie!

So do you ever hang at Jackie Franks forum any more?

Lol. Your welcome.Oh my, that would be a very... disturbing book, if they were cousins! Even second or third cousins is just way too close.

Yeah, all the time. :) Mainly I post in the 'what are you reading at the moment' area, but I still look around at all the other ones. :)
