Taken By Desire Blog Tour

Title: Taken by Desire

Series: Demonic Desires, Book 1

Author: Valerie Twombly

Release Date: May 18, 2015

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Greydon has two important missions: Find his brothers and rescue his 

people. His duty becomes complicated when he's forced to beg a 

human to save his life.

Aimee Jarvis always considered her bookstore a detour to bigger 

things. Little did she realize her next stop would be the intriguing 

world of a demon prince. Yet, she finds the dangerous Greydon 


While their attraction continues to burn, they both deny what their 

hearts already know. It will take the mystery of an ancient civilization 

and a shocking discovery for them to admit their desire.

An Excerpt:

Greydon and Fang checked the perimeter of the compound to be sure 

there was no trouble. Greydon didn’t trust Zolar, even if it was impossible for 

the god to enter. It would only be a matter of time before the god succeeded 

in finding a way in.

“So, how do you feel knowing that Aimee is part demon?” Fang asked.

Greydon shrugged. “How am I supposed to feel?”

The demon protector snorted. “You have the fucking hots for her. Why 

won’t you simply admit it?”

Greydon stopped outside the front door to the palace. “Just like you to 

speak what’s on your mind.”

“Will you deny it?” Fang raised a brow.

Greydon laughed. “No, I guess I’m not.”

“Well that’s good because her scent is all over you. So, what are you 

going to do about it, or have you already?”

“I don’t know.” He opened the door, crossed the threshold with Fang 

on his heels and immediately sensed Aimee’s restlessness. He was driven to 

find her. “Fang, I have something I need to do.”

“Of course you do.” The demon walked in the other direction, laughing 

to himself.

“I’m glad he finds this humorous,” Greydon mumbled under his breath 

as he followed both Aimee’s scent and the pull his tie had to her. 

Seconds later, he found himself standing in the doorway of the 

expansive library, staring at her as she stood in front of the fire. The black 

yoga pants formed to every inch of her lean body and the pink tee allowed her 

midriff to peek out.

“You look far away.”

She jerked and spun to face him. “I didn’t hear you. I wasn’t tired so 

thought I’d come in here.”

He walked into the room and made himself comfortable on the couch in 

front of the fireplace. “Something bothering you?”

She rubbed her arms as if cold, but he knew better. She was anxious 

about something. He could smell it. “I’ve been thinking. I want to help you, but 

I’m not sure how. Maybe you can guide me in the right direction?”

He cocked his head and stared at her, then patted the seat next to him. 

“Come sit and we can discuss it.” 

She plopped down beside him and stared straight into his eyes. “I want 

to get one thing straight. I know you think that your attraction to me is from 

the blood bond, and maybe it is. However, I’m attracted to you as well and I 

have no bond to blame. I liked the kiss, and well, I hope you’re not 

discouraged from doing it again.”

At a loss for words, he figured the best place to start was with her 

request to help. "Okay, let's deal with one thing at a time. I think you might be 

a big help in deciphering our society. We're taught when we are very small 

about this world and what happened here. However, there are many gaps. 

You studied ancient languages and have a love for old books."

She nodded. "I think I know where you might be going with this. You 

want me to do some digging around here to see what I can learn?"

"Would you mind?" he asked, watching her eyes light up and a big smile 

spread across her lips. He realized he liked seeing her happy.

"Absolutely! I would be honored. I have to admit, it would also give me 

a chance to learn more about my supposed heritage.”

"I guess you probably have a lot of questions. I know I sure as hell do. In 

the morning, Fang and I plan to go back to the compound where you were 

held, and see if we can locate the others."

Aimee stared off into the flames. "I'm sure by now they know I'm 

gone." Her pleading gaze came back to meet his. "You have to save the other 

humans there too. God only knows what they've done to them."

The need to provide comfort coursed through him so he brushed his 

thumb down her cheek, desiring the intimate contact. “I’ll do my best, but you 

have to understand. My people, and especially my brothers, come first. After 

that I will not hesitate to save who I can.”

“Of course I understand, and I wouldn’t expect any less.” She leaned 

into his palm and desire darkened her hazel eyes.

He couldn’t stand it anymore, so he leaned in and brushed his lips 

across hers. He wanted more, and even though she’d admitted being 

attracted to him, he still held back. However, it took him by surprise when she 

placed her palms on his chest and pushed him back into the couch. Her lips 

never broke contact with his and when he could go no further, she wrapped 

her arms around his neck. Her tongue pressed and he opened, allowing her to 

sweep in and taste him. She positioned herself between his spread legs and 

the next thing he knew, she was grinding against his swollen erection.

She laced her fingers in his hair as her tongue continued to plunder his 

mouth. Never before had he given control to a woman. He wondered why, 

since he was loving every second of it. 

He slid his hands down her back and cupped her ass, digging his fingers 

into the firm flesh. She moaned into their kiss and pressed harder against him. 

Heat radiated between her thighs and caused his shaft to ache. He needed 

both his cock and his fangs buried deep inside her, but damn he had to stop 

this and quickly.

About the Author:

As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble 

for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, 

Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother 

saying. “It will give you nightmares.” She was 

right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from 

watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged 

creatures never waned. She would watch any 

vampire movie she could find.

Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal 

romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed Series and from there she 

was hooked.

Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is 

not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles 

her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.
