Desires Unleashed by D.N Simmons

Desires Unleashed is the first novel in the riveting, highly-addictive and sexually-charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles. Experience the heart-pounding thrill of the chase in this electrifying page- turner as you uncover the mystery behind the series of gruesome deaths that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.

Original, sexy and gritty, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take you for a ride you won't forget!

"For those of you who love moresomes, this book will hit the spot, with supernatural hotness thrown in. Weres and vampires are treated with such casualness that they seem all the more real! Lots of strong males and fiesty females!" -J.C. Owens, author of "Gaven"

Desires Unleashed Excerpt
“Shhhh, quiet. You’ll die tonight, but you die as the chosen. Fear not, you are lucky to die by a vampire’s kiss,” he whispered into Anthony’s ear, repeating his most clichéd vampire quote.

He began enforcing his silent command-coaxing Anthony to remain calm. Once Xavier felt the
other man’s muscles relax, he leaned closer to the pulsating artery underneath the smooth, soft skin of Anthony’s neck. Xavier’s mouth opened, fangs extending for the feeding. Anthony gasped, his back arching as Xavier’s fangs broke through his skin. Xavier began to feed; audible sucking noises filled the room, adding to the sexual atmosphere. Low moans were coming from the two men, both enwrapped in pleasure, sharing this special union. Darian watched closely. He enjoyed watching the “vampire’s kiss” in motion. He delighted in watching other people enjoying pleasure in all forms, even if it was their last time.

Anthony let out a long shivering moan. His body twitched once, then twice, falling limp as Xavier continued to feed, draining the body completely. He savored the warm, delicious, thick fluid as it filled his mouth, flowing down his throat. He could not, would not give this sensation up for anything in the world. He tilted his head slightly, widening his mouth to capture more of the blood that warmed him. It excited him; he could feel the warmth spread throughout his limbs. His body tingled as though little electric shocks where bursting over him. He had grown hard during the feeding, as all vampires did, and he felt his passions rise to the crest.

Xavier was disappointed when the blood stopped flowing as he was enjoying his feast. He pulled away, letting Anthony’s corpse slip from his hands. The world seemed to disappear as he relished the sensation the blood was giving him. He sat there, head leaned back, eyes closed, full-shaped lips slightly parted as he ran his hands down the length of his torso, past his stomach, to caress his aching groin. His body twitched as he massaged his penis relieving some of the pressure. Darian smiled, waving John out of his office. John nodded and scooped up Anthony’s corpse, throwing the body over his shoulder before exiting the room.

Darian walked up to Xavier, peered into his gray eyes and smiled. He squatted beside his lover, arms encircling the other man’s chest. He held him against his torso with one arm, while his right hand slid up Xavier’s chest to caress his throat. He grabbed Xavier’s chin, held his face up to his. Darian’s tongue darted out licking the spilt blood from Xavier’s lips. Their tongues met in a passionate kiss. A low groan escaped from Xavier as Darian began to caress him. He slid a hand inside his shirt, fingers seeking the firm nipples and gently rolled the delicate flesh between his fingertips, sending shivers through Xavier’s body. Darian’s other hand slid further down to caress Xavier’s crotch, massaging the hardness through the denim material. Ragged, panting moans filled the room as Xavier began to feel his climax. All sensations stopped when Darian released him and rose from the floor.

Confused and disappointed, Xavier looked up, a questioning look on his face. “Why stop?”

Smiling wickedly, Darian leaned close to Xavier’s ear and whispered. “An eye for an eye, my beautiful inamorato. Tomorrow night, we’ll share each other’s passions, but not until then.”

He walked out of the room, leaving Xavier completely unsatisfied.

Payback can sure be a bitch. Xavier thought as he remembered interrupting Darian’s seduction of Annette earlier.

I hope you enjoyed that taste of Desires Unleashed. There's plenty more where that came from. :D 

When I first started reading this book, I felt like I was reading four different books at the same time. In the beginning each chapter introduced a new set of characters and I couldn’t see how any of them were related.

I immediately liked Natasha and Annette.  I found them to be interesting. I was really looking forward to reading more of their story. However, I didn’t get much on them in the story and Annette wasn’t in the book very much at all. She spent most of her time in the hospital.

Warren and Matthew were interesting as well. I would have liked to have seen more between them as it was obvious there was some tension between them. I was a bit confused about the relationship between Warren and his pack mate. It felt forced. It was almost like D.N. Simmons felt Warren needed a relationship of some type so one was contrived for him.
Sergio and Elise were just random characters to me. I’m not sure why so much time was spent building their story, unless it’s just an entry way into a future book. Their entire storyline seem superfluous. It was very distracting to me.

I really liked Darien and Xavier. It took me quite some time to figure out how they played into the entire story. I was beginning to wonder if their story was just extra as well until the end of the book. I enjoyed their interactions and wanted to get more on them. I was very pleased with the way their story went.

The first 2/3 of the book was a struggle for me. There seemed to be a lot of extra going on in the book that was unrelated. Not seeing how the stories were interconnected really confused me. The last 1/3 of the book saved it!  As they got closer to solving the murders it became addictive and I couldn’t put it down.

Interesting excerpt and review. I can't make up my mind about whether or not I would enjoy this book but I'll add it to my list to think about some more.
