Spotlight & Review: Taken by Desire by Valerie Twombly

Taken by Desire
Demonic Desires
by Valerie Twombly
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Greydon has two important missions: Find his brothers and rescue his people. His duty becomes complicated when he's forced to beg a human to save his life.

Aimee Jarvis always considered her bookstore a detour to bigger things. Little did she realize her next stop would be the intriguing world of a demon prince. Yet, she finds the dangerous Greydon alluring.

While their attraction continues to burn, they both deny what their hearts already know. It will take the mystery of an ancient civilization and a shocking discovery for them to admit their desire.
My Review:
This was a very fast paced and exciting read. It was very refreshing and new. A lot of the paranormal romances now are pretty much the same story told over and over but this one was different.
I really liked Aimee, shes a fighter and I love her sense of humor. Even after being attacked by these demons she stuck around to make sure her rescuer was ok. Greydon is a great leading male. He's all alpha but still very sweet. Him and Aimee make a great pair. I love the chemistry between them and the build up to them getting together. When they finally did it was very hot!
There are a lot of great secondary characters too. Bethany, Aimee's best friend is very sassy and I love how protective and determined she was to save Aimee. And Fang, I love Fang. He's so snarky and fun. Him and Bethany are great when their together. I hope for their story soon! Plus Greydon's brothers.
There are some great twists and surprises thrown in. I love the bits of Mythology and history thrown in. This is definitely a great start to a new series and I can't wait for more.
