>Review: Hunger Aroused by Dee Carney


Hunger Aroused Jasmine is sick in bed when a sexy stranger breaks in and reveals she’s suffering an irreversible case of vampirism. And because her turning wasn’t approved by the Council, he must kill her once the transition is complete. In the meantime, the executioner offers to ease her torment with chocolate, hot peppers or sexual release. Fortunately, for them both, Jasmine’s kitchen is bare…
Corin’s honor demands he do his duty, but he cannot execute the lovely woman while any part of her humanity remains. He must also find-and kill-her sire. Jasmine denies ever having contact with a vampire, causing Corin to question the justice of his orders. Sensing his hesitation, the Council dispatches another executioner, forcing the pair to make a run for it.

Every hour they spend together-every sensual encounter they share-finds them growing closer. Now Corin will have to choose: kill the woman he loves, or go against everything he believes to set her free.

I thought I’d read about every type of vampire possible, but I was wrong. In Dee Carney’s world, where their existence is hidden, vampirism can be spread via contaminated needles. So when a vampire is severely injured and taken to receive medical care Nurse Jasmine is there to help. But in the ensuing struggle, she’s stuck with the needle she’d used on him thus discovering a new and unheard of way to create vampires.

At 184 pages, it’s a breeze to read. The heat level is set at “hot” so have a nice cold beverage handy. Hunger Aroused is light reading…for those times when you’re tired of heavy realism and looking for something that doesn’t require a lot of thinking. It was fun and I enjoyed it immensely.
