Rosalie Stanton's Possession

I posted my review on Goodreads but forgot to do so here, darn it! This is an excellent story by a fabulous friend. If you love sexy vampires, demon hunters, and so much sizzle and burn you'll melt, Possession is just the ticket.

Without further ado, the review!!

A few months ago, I purchased a copy of Rosalie Stanton’s first offering, Firsts. To say I fell in love would be putting it mildly. Her characters, quite literally, jumped off the page. Not to mention the hero, Thorn, carved his own special niche in my heart. So when I learned her second story, Possession, was released, I couldn’t wait to get my mitts on a copy.

In this story we are introduced to Arianna and Kade. She’s a demon hunter who detests things that go bump in the night. He’s a vampire that shows up one evening asking to team up to kick some bad guy ass. Hardly the yin to each other’s yang, they form a reluctant partnership.

Yet all is not entirely what it seems.

Arianna, for all her determination not to, feels something for Kade. And Kade, well, he’s yearned for the sultry minx that detests his kind for longer than he’d care to admit.

It takes a spell by eros demons to bring these two together in the throes of passion, but when the storm is weathered, can they confess their feelings and open their hearts to something more? You’ll have to read to find out, but don’t worry, it won’t hurt…much. *grin*

This is a laugh-out-loud kind of tale with tons of heat, emotion, and heart. I always love finding vampire material that offers something new, which Possession does. It’s not meant to be taken too seriously, which is the beauty of the work. It’s been a very long time since I’ve giggled and snorted as I’ve read along, but let me tell you, when the fun begins you won’t be able to sit still.

Ms. Stanton is an artisan of her craft, and she’ll make sure you wriggle and squirm as much as you ooh and ahh. Definitely an author for the keeper shelf, I can’t wait for more from her in the future.

You can purchase Possession at Loose Id.
