"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 love the way VEIN OF LOVE was written. It was eloquent, evocative, and thought-provoking. Each progressive sequence brought me that much deeper into the paranormal realm created in this story. The world building was awesome and the idea of demons walking among us snagged me. Has me looking at people a little differently ;) And I kept trying to picture what Daemon eyes look like. C'mon Natalie, they're not real. Right?

Tensley was my bae. He WAS this story. He was just my type of a-hole. He was a demon forced to honor a 300 year old contract to wed a daemon, who turns out to be a young lady named Molly. In his world, a demon is not to hold affection. If their heart were to become whole, it would be ripped out, leaving them heartless and immoral. A lesson Tensley watched first hand with his older brother. But he can't help himself because Molly keeps pulling at him, drawing out emotions he's never had.

Molly was a tool. I wish she was real so I could punch her in the face. I really couldn't stand her. At all. She NEVER learned a lesson. EVER. And she was incredibly selfish and immature. She was sneaky, conniving and manipulative without a real clue as to what the heck she was doing. She had no real direction other than she wanted something to happen someway somehow. For such a 'good girl' she did a lot of bad things. And I'm pissed over the many ways she has hurt my poor baby, Tensley.

I'm not sure what book two will bring, but I'm hoping Tensley finally marks this girl and that when he does mark her, she grows a brain. I'm looking forward to reading more of this series and finding more reasons to fall for my boo!
