The Demon Kiss continues the journey in Portia and Vance's discovery of each other and their magic, with events that seem impossibly difficult and relentless in trying to pull them apart. Having overcome the danger of a near demon conversion, Portia and Vance embark on the journey of facing Vance's father, with the hopes of finally laying to rest the threat that hangs over Vance's fate. As I read each page, I found myself pulled deeper into the story and my emotions became tied to theirs. I loved the dynamics the author developed further with Vance and Portia and I have to say that they are rapidly becoming one of my favorite couples. Portia is more committed to doing all she can to support Vance and Vance is more determined to protect Portia at all costs. Both
Portia continued to grow into a strong character and I loved watching as she became more assertive and secure in herself and the relationship she had with Vance. She wasn’t afraid to do whatever it took to protect Vance and finally rid him of his father’s influence. She had a kind of selflessness that I found incredibly appealing and a tenacity that had me cheering. She is definitely not a character who hides when things get tough, always there on the frontline eager to do her part.
Vance Mangum is everything a bad boy should be and will always and forever guarantee a gush and sigh from me. I loved him in The Trouble With Spells but here, I absolutely fell apart with giddy excitement as I began to see a more edgy side of him. He was still the same charismatic guy you just can’t help be drawn to and you get a much closer look into his tortured past. You need to know I just loved reading how he was with Portia – there were moments of incredible passion and I did mini swoons each time he showed the tenderness of his heart. I could gush about him for hours and I’m impatiently waiting to see more of him because trust me when I say that Vance is delicious.
One of my favorite scenes occur when Portia and Vance come face to face with the evilness that is Vance's father, Damien Cummings and as a villain, Damien definitely delivers the goods. Even through the pages he made my skin crawl and that's what I loved so much about reading this book. Not only did the author have my skin crawling, she also had me blushing through the kissing, sighing through the tenderness, laughing at the humor and cheering in those moments where Vance and Portia needed it the most. She has written the book in a way that engages both the mind and heart of the reader, taking them on a ride that they won't easily forget.
It was such an amazing read with all the twists and turns that had me holding onto my seat, never knowing where the story would take me. Lacey wrote in such a way that it was almost effortless to fall into the story and see the scenes as they unfolded, experiencing each moment alongside the characters. I found myself so engrossed that I couldn’t read fast enough and once I was finished, I began the frantic search for the release date of Lacey's third book, Blood Of The White Witch.
I absolutely adored this book and gush about it to all who will listen. If I could, I’d give everyone this book so they can see for themselves just how fabulous Portia and Vance are. A definite keeper for me and a book I’ll read for many years to come.
