Book Review : Vein Of Love by R.Scarlett

Title : Vein Of Love
Author : R. Scarlett
Series : Blackest Gold #1
Published : August 16th 2016 

"Darkness isn't all one shade, sweetheart."

Three centuries ago, Molly Darling’s ancestors signed a contract in blood—daemon blood—to protect themselves from harm. On the eve she turns nineteen, Molly leaves for her birthday party against her parent’s wishes, sick of their warnings about her “betrothal to a demon.”

Except that she’s very much betrothed, and he’s very much a demon—one who’s only agreed to the nuptials to steal Molly’s ancient daemon powers. Brash, arrogant, and built like a Greek god, Tensley Knight keeps showing up to save Molly from otherworldly attacks, only to insult her a moment later.

As Molly learns more about the demon world, she realizes two things: that her family’s safety depends on a successful marriage, while any chance of freedom she’ll ever have calls for Tensley’s demise.

Yet sometimes Molly spots a tortured soul beyond those liquid grey eyes, and there’s no denying the way her skin tingles when Tensley touches it. In Vein of Love, safety requires sacrifice, foe becomes lover, and one must decide whether to kiss...or to kill.

A wonderful start to a new series from a debut author!I love the world-building and the thought that the author has put into creating this series!It's a completely new take on demons and I've loved it so far!

Molly has just turned 19 years, and though she wishes to lead the life of a normal human, she has abilities and powers that set her apart from others.This causes her to keep people at a distance, with the exception of her best friend September.After a incident at the party, she realizes that her parents' warnings were true.She is indeed betrothed to a demon, due to an unfulfilled promise.
And the demon who is supposed to marry her is Tensley Knight, the one who saves her.

Tensley isn't interested in marrying her, but he is duty bound.As a demon, he can't feel emotions, and doing so would result in disastrous consequences. Now that Molly is in danger, he has to find a way to keep her safe and fulfill his obligations.
Molly is totally confused by the demon who keeps being rude to her, but shows up to save her the next moment.She doesn't want to be tied to him, but she also doesn't know who to trust.
Will these two make it out safe and together?

I loved the slow development of the relationship between Molly and Tensley from mutual dislike to love.Molly was a little naive in the beginning, but unlike other heroines she underwent tremendous character development, and her true strength came out.I could understand Tensley's attitude, but his hot and cold behavior grew old too fast.But I still loved the push and pull between them.The chemistry was too good!

The action and the events had me waiting to know what would happen next.The cast of secondary characters were also amazing!And I believe the writing was the most beautiful part!
Thing aren't resolved fully by the end, I am really eager to see where the author takes Molly and Tensley in the next book.Now that I have Body of the Crime in my hands, I am going to jump into it immediately! :D
P.S. Don't you just love the covers?They're absolutely dreamy and beautiful!
