5 Flaming Stars for Amaury's Hellion by Tina Folsom
Amaury's Hellion is the second installment in Tina Folsom's Scanguard Vampires Series and it was exquisite! One thing I can say is that each book in this series can very well stand alone. I've read this completely out of order and wasn't lost at all. Amaury LeSang is a bodyguard for the Scanguards, run by his good friend and fellow vampire, Samson. Amaury lost his family after becoming a vampire, and now lives with a curse. He will never love or feel love again, but he can feel other people's emotions to such an extent that it literally causes him pain. How does he curb it? Sex of course. Sex is the only thing that can ease the pain letting Amaury survive. He accepted his fate of never loving another, and keeps himself distanced from woman except to sex them to be pain free. That is until he meets Nina. Nina has been following the Scanguards to avenge her brothers death. She knows what they are and what they are capable of. She will kill Amaury if given the chance. What she didn't expect when she confronted him was that her body would take over with needs she thought she would never feel. As feisty as she is, Amaury is intrigued by Nina, not only because she is playing hard to get, but he cannot sense any emotion from her either. Folsom did a magnificent job with this title. You will fall in love with these characters and the plot is so strong you can't help but to turn the page. I highly recommend this entire series and I can't wait to delve into the latest installment, Yvette's Haven.
