Underworld General is a hospital that specializes in treating paranormal creatures of all kinds.  Friends, enemies, it doesn’t matter; the doctors and nurses at UG understand that it is their duty to treat everyone, and all are welcome, except humans.  When a UG paramedic team brings in not just an injured human - but an injured demon slayer - Eidolon is torn between his hatred for these killers and his vow as a doctor to do no harm.

Talia Mancuso is a proud member of the Aegis, an ancient group of warriors who protect their human kin from the evil surrounding them.  Talia thinks of the Aegis as the family that she never had, and her whole life has been about destroying demons, the cruel and monstrously ugly creatures she has been trained to kill.  After a demon attack, Talia’s partner is killed and she is terribly hurt.  She awakens in a hospital but soon realizes it is unlike any hospital she’s ever seen before.

Eidolon and Talia soon find themselves entangled in a horrific mystery; someone is kidnapping supernatural creatures and harvesting their organs for profit.  Eidolon and his brothers suspect the Aegis and decide to keep a close eye on Talia to prevent her from revealing UG’s secret location.  Talia suspects other demons are behind the horrors, she knows that the Aegis aren’t capable of such things, even if they were wrong about some demons, like Eidolon.  Talia grows more and more confused about what is right and wrong in her formerly black and white world as Eidolon grows more and more attached to this demon slayer who should be his enemy.  When danger keeps hitting closer and closer to home, Talia and Eidolon realize that they have to put old hatreds and misunderstandings behind them and work together to discover the real monsters who are threatening the innocent, and they may just learn that they are not so different after all.

PLEASURE UNBOUND is a fantastic start to what promises to be a dark and sensual new series, overflowing with action and romance.  Larissa Ione has created an entire new take on the supernatural world and it is very addictive.  The heroes are sexy and very alpha male and the heroines, the ones we have met so far anyway, are strong and independent.  The story for PLEASURE UNBOUND moves along at a fast and furious pace, keeping the readers at the edge of their seats as more and more secrets are revealed.  The love scenes are very erotic and sexy; the fact that Eidolon is an incubus demon is quite apparent.  I really enjoyed reading PLEASURE UNBOUND and will be anxiously waiting for the next two novels in the series to come out.
