My recap:

Erion's son, Ladd, is kidnapped by Erion's adoptive father, the evil vampire Cruen. In order to get Ladd back, Erion kidnaps Cruen's bride-to-be as a bargaining chip. But Erion doesn't realize that Hellen is a demon from Hell, and she turns out to be more than he bargained for. She calls to the demon nature he tries to keep hidden and under control, and their attraction to each other is primal and undeniable.

When Hellen's father, the Devil—yes, THE Devil—discovers that she's missing, all Hell breaks loose. Well, The Devil breaks loose. Now Erion has to deal with the Devil. And Erion not only wants his son back, but the devil's daughter in the bargain.

But the devil doesn't drive a fair bargain.

My thoughts:

Hellen is feisty, strong, and kick-ass. Yet she's also sympathetic. She has a tender heart, and constantly worries that she's going to end up like her father. Is she beautiful? That's brought up often throughout the book. You'll have to decide for yourself, but she's beautiful in Erion's eyes.

Erion was short-changed in life, having been rejected by his mother and raised by Cruen. He's considered a "mistake." His son is being raised by his twin brother and his brother's true mate, and Ladd doesn't even realize that Erion is his father. But when Ladd is kidnapped, Erion's fatherly instincts roar to the surface. He feels that he must be the one to bring him home. I won't give you any spoilers, but Erion grows into his true self on his journey.

This book moved along at a fast pace. The suspense, danger, and tension—sexual and otherwise—between Hellen and Erion kept me reading page after page. I was finished before I knew it. And I wanted more!

We visit with favorite characters from past books in Eternal Demon. It was fun to see the irreverent Lucian again. Alexander was his usual commanding self except when it came to his Achilles heel, Sara. Nicholas and Kate face a dark moment in their lives, and it will be interesting to see how they come out on the other side. Synjon Wise has virtually gone mad. Eternal Sin is set up at the end of Eternal Demon. Although I could see the last line of the book coming, it still gave me a thrill.
