Mercy O’Malley hates killing people. So when she’s assigned to take out Vampire-Demon Logan Kyllwood, she lures him to a seedy bar in Scotland, then decides to kidnap him instead. How can she cold-bloodedly end all that heat, those green eyes, that ripped body?
Unfortunately for Mercy, attempted murder and kidnapping are just foreplay for the Kyllwood brothers. Logan may be the youngest of the bunch, but death and violence are already a way of life. Now he’s ready to complete a painful, terrifying ritual to become one of the Seven, dedicated to protecting this world from the most dangerous evil it’s ever known. But first he has to deal with a blackmailing Fey, a ransom demand and his own pounding need for the last female he ever should have fallen for . . .
I do love a paranormal romance with demons and vampires and alpha males. Insert a drooling on my book meme here. And boy does Demon’s Mercy deliver the goods. You may want to read this with a fan nearby. Don’t get me wrong. It’s in no way erotica, but the tension is so thick, you would need a chainsaw to cut it and the sex is hot. Logan and Mercy are fully grown adults who have both been through a lot, so there is no teen angst here. Also lets all do a happy dance, the bullshit female virgin trope is nowhere to be seen. I freaking hate that one, so I was stoked.
Demon’s Mercy is book 9 in the Dark Protectors series, but this didn’t get in the way of my enjoyment at all. I definitely want to go back and read the first 8 and I would keep going with the series as well. The characters that would be up next are very interesting, and I’m very interested to see what happens with Logan’s brother Sam.
For me, all paranormal romance tends to follow a similar pattern, but this one does it well. I enjoyed the way it was written, I was never bored and it even had me laughing at some of the ridiculous positions our main characters got themselves into.
If you are a fan of fast-paced, paranormal romance with interesting back stories, then this series might be for you.
