Blind Desire by I.D. Locke  
I just read this book for the second time and I loved it as much as the first. The characters are fantastic. Quinlin is a Gifted human, a superbly talented musician with the unique ability to see auras. This is quite handy since he is physically blind, so auras are all he can see. A chance encounter with Ryzel sends Quinlin stumbling into the life he is destined to live with the demon he is destined to love. Demon politics, meddling family, handsome best friends and hot, hot, hot sex make this story a highly entertaining read.

True that the main characters are well developed and the plot is engaging. Yet what made this book stand out from the rest in my mind were the fantastic secondary characters. Even Quinlin's dead grandmother is a fantastic character. I would love to read a story featuring Ryzel's father and Quinlin's Aunt. Given the way the author dealt with Quinlin's best friend Haskell, I am hoping he will have his own story some day.

M/M romance fans, particularly those who enjoy paranormals are likely to love this book. It certainly left me wanting to read more...again.

Blurb: "A chance encounter in an alleyway has Ryzel, an incubus, chasing after Quinlin, the Gifted human who almost interrupted his most recent meal. Quinlin’s prickly attitude doesn’t stop Ryzel from trying to find him because a Gifted human such as Quinlin is the richest possible food source for an incubus. It certainly doesn’t hurt that Ryzel also finds Quinlin beautiful.

Quinlin is frustrated and annoyed that he can’t get Ryzel out of his mind after only one stolen kiss. A second encounter with Ryzel in a bar leads Quinlin to make the life-altering decision to sleep with the object of his obsession to purge Ryzel from his mind once and for all. One night of pleasure reveals details neither intended to tell the other about themselves. The wheels of destiny are set into motion."

Thank you for your kind words and I'm really happy that Blind Desire had re-read quality for you.

And yes, I do have more planned with some of the characters from Blind Desire. Haskell does get his own story called Ride A Wild Horse and Adrial gets one, too, called Hush Of Angels. In addition to that, if you're after more stuff with Ryzel and Quin, pop on over to my author LJ and there's a bunch of free fiction I've posted there about them set after the events of Blind Desire.and Ryzel in doll form is in transit to me right now

Blind Desire Master List

There's also The Fall Of Sodom that gives you some background on why Adrial is such an asshole and why he bugged Quin so much.

TQ has also accepted 3 stories (2 shorts and a novella) and the novella and one of the shorts takes place in the same world as BD but with new characters.

In addition to all that, there is also an epic sized story (190K) I've recently finished posting on my author LJ called Balancing Karma and I have other free reads there as well.

Thanks for the links! I can't wait to read Haskell's story and Adrial's story. Woot!

Adrial's gets the go ahead first because against my better judgment, I've started writing it *head desk*. I wanted to get other things cleared up first but.... And one of the other things that I'm working on is a story with one of Ryzel's spawn, Sam. That one is called The Ugly Incubus, BTW.

Ooooh... That sounds awesome!

And in a little bit more awesome news (to me at least) I now have Ryzel as a BJD in my possession and he's gorgeous.
