Desires Unleashed
by D.N. Simmons
Book #2 of Knights of the Darkness Chronicles
Publication: April 4th 2012 by Rushmore Publishing
Genre: Adult Paranormal Romance

Book Depository Amazon B & N Goodreads

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 killings that have been terrorizing the citizens of Chicago.

When a grisly decapitated corpse pops up on a Chicago Street, drained of blood, the highly-trained, government-funded special police force assigned two of their best detectives to the case. S.U.I.T. Detectives Warren Davis and Matthew Eric delve deep into their investigation to discover just who or what is leaving mutilated bodies in public places. They soon realize that the killer or killers is one step ahead of them and if they are going to stop the menace before another innocent human is viciously attack, they are going to need help.

Natasha Hemingway liked her life just the way it was… normal and supernatural-free. The vampires and shape-shifters were just where she wanted them to be—far away from her. All was going well until an unfortunate accident landed her in the hospital. It was then that she discovered she had an ability that could help her save countless lives. All of a sudden, she finds herself thrust into the dangerous and alluring world of the supernatural and into the arms of two very sexy and deadly vampires.

Original, gritty and sprinkled with just the right amount of humor and wit, the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles will suck you in and take you for a ride you won't forget. You don’t want to miss out on this amazing series!

This book has been previously published and has been substantially revised from its original release.

This book is totally awesome. The mixture of modern day serial killings mixed with the supernatural world keeps your toes and leaves you wanting more. The female ‘hero’ of the book is cool and her desire to stay out of the supernatural world makes you sympathize with her, and then you cheer once she gets her cool power that can help end the murder spree that is plaguing the city. Her struggles don’t end there, because not only does she have to battle for human kind with this gift, she also has to fight her attraction to the two supernatural detectives assigned to solve the case and catch the killer that is out there hunting for his next ‘meal. All in all, Desires Unleashed  is a very good beginning to what I hope is an awesome series.

The Guilty Innocent
Book #2 of Knights of the Darkness Chronicles
Publication: August 22nd 2012 by Rushmore Publishing
Genre: Adult Urban Fantasy

Book Depository Amazon B & N Goodreads

The Guilty Innocent is the second novel in the edgy, action-packed, sexually-charged Knights of the Darkness Chronicles.

In this installment, Darian, the gorgeous, charismatic and charming master vampire of Chicago is framed for a crime he didn't commit, but why? His lover, Xavier, Natasha and a few others must travel halfway across the world to find out who and why before time runs out and all hell breaks loose!

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

This book has been previously published and has been substantially revised from its original release.

Okay, at first I wasn’t all too happy that this second book in the series wasn’t a true continuance to the previous book’s story, but it still grabbed my interest and keep me wanting more. You’ve got this sexy head vampire who gets framed for a murder that he had no part in and then he has to basically run all over the world in order to find a way to clear his name before the shit storm of the century happens and he loses everything he holds dear. The author grabs your imagination with the descriptions of both her characters and the scenery they find themselves in as well as the fights for their very lives. Can I say lives when they are technically dead? Anyway, The Guilty Innocent  was an awesome read and I can’t wait to read more of this awesome series.
