A DEMON ENSLAVED
Lore is a Seminus half-breed demon who has been forced to act as his dark master’s assassin. Now to earn his freedom and save his sister’s life, he must complete one last kill. Powerful and ruthless, he’ll stop at nothing to carry out this deadly mission.
AN ANGEL TEMPTED
Idess is an earthbound angel with a wild side, sworn to protect the human Lore is targeting. She’s determined to thwart her wickedly handsome adversary by any means necessary-even if that means risking her vow of eternal chastity. But what begins as a simple seduction soon turns into a passion that leaves both angel and demon craving complete surrender.
Torn between duty and desire, Lore and Idess must join forces as they battle their attraction for each other. Because an enemy from the past is rising again-one hellbent on vengeance and unthinkable destruction.

K.C.’s review of Ecstasy Unveiled:
I think this is Ione’s best yet. I must have had one of my infamous brain farts because I had no idea that Idess was an angel until she was mentioned. As you can tell, I ran out and bought this book and immediately started reading without even reading the back blurb. Yes, I was that excited.
We met Lore in Passion Unleashed aka Wraiths story. Remember, he was the cute assassin guy who has to wear a glove, who also had a mondo crush on Gem (Who wouldn’t? Still miffed that she and Kyan didn’t get their own book). In Ecstasy Unveiled we pick up with Lore’s story and meet some of our favorite characters from books past.
After saving Kyan in Passion Unleashed, his dark master has one final task before Lore can gain his freedom. He must kill Kyan. If he doesn’t, his half sister Sin, (also an assassin) will be sold as a sex slave. The Dark Master has Lore by the balls, as the young-in’s say these days.
Meanwhile Idess, a warrior angel, is assigned to guard Kyan. Her first meet-up with Lore is a doozie. This is one angel that won’t ever make it on the Hallmark shelf, she pretty much kicks Lore’s ass. And well, he can’t help but like her. The only problem is Lore can’t touch anyone without killing them and Idess has taken a vow of chastity. Oh, and when a Seminus, half breed is tied to the bed and is about to die, the only surefire method to save him by sex…
Ecstasy Unveiled is a fast-paced read (yes, I stayed up all night to finish) that kept me flipping the pages as fast as I could. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next! If you liked the other Demonica books, YOU CANNOT MISS THIS ONE (I’m not shouting, I’m just speaking in a really loud voice). I loved Pleasure Unbound but I thought Tayla was a bit rough around the edges with her demon prejudices. On the flip side Idess is a character I connected with instantly. Lore had me at hello or Chapter 1 in book speak. There were so many things that happened in book 4, I couldn’t even mention ‘em all or I would be basically rehashing all the good, juicy stuff.
Final Verdict: Each Demonica book just keeps getting better and better. The momentum of the story and pacing keeps you drawn in until way past your bedtime. Your book shelf needs a Demonica shrine. (Hell, I have a special spot on my bookshelf). And, it would be a crying shame if Ecstasy Unveiled wasn’t on your shelf. ‘Nough said.
