When Pleasure Rules effortlessly picks up where When Blood Calls leaves off. Rich with moral dilemmas, steamy sex and a timeless political feud between vampires and werewolves, there’s something for all paranormal fans here. Readers will be seriously looking forward to the next book in the Shadow Keepers series. Sexy, dark and intense!

Lissa owns a club where she takes care of her “girls,” succubi demons she rescued from abusive masters. They provide pleasure and feed on souls —never enough to kill, just enough to survive. Unlike other succubi, Lissa has an extra skill; she can read minds during sex, as she’s feeding on her lover’s soul. This skill has captured the attention of the Division, who need Lissa’s power to get inside the mind of someone who may know why innocents are being killed. Trouble is, the first person they want her to read is Vincent Rand, a man she’s falling for. Can she betray him to save her own life?

Vincent Rand knows Lissa is a succubus and yet he still can’t get her out of his mind. And he has bigger problems to deal with. He’s been sent to do whatever it takes to find out who’s killing innocents. With trouble brewing between the Alliance of vampires and werewolves, the sooner they uncover the killer, the better.

Demons and Wolves

Submitted by francesdinagen on October 13, 2010 - 4:28pm.

I’ve enjoyed reading J K Becks new paranormal trilogy. When Blood Calls was good, When Pleasure Rules is even better. I can’t wait for When Wicked Craves. I find this paranormal world engrossing, interesting, and I like the complexities of the characters and their unique struggles with self-acceptance and balancing their natures among their own kind as well as the human population. I think her slant on the PRN judicial system is fresh and I like that there is interdepartmental acceptance between the two worlds, and last but not least, that love crosses all boundaries.
