Delius never asked for his fate, but in a world that placed all its faith in prophecy, he would be a fool to challenge it. He felt like a parasite, forced to live off the fear of humans.
From the first time Delius became trapped in Selina’s mind and seduced by her provocative thoughts, he was drawn to her. She was a mystery that turned into an obsession. Yet for them to have a life together, Delius would have to go against his own race that demanded he fulfill his destiny. One that did not include Selina.

His open collar revealed a smooth, tan, muscled chest. That black patterned tattoo climbing up his neck shouted danger and sex appeal. She tried to forget that it meant he was promised to another. It wasn't as hard as it should be when he looked so fine.
"You look stunning," said Delius, taking Selina's elbow and opening the door for
She sank into the leather seat and glanced around at all the gadgets on the dashboard. The car smelled showroom new. A moment later, Delius climbed in beside her. His scent rushed at her, so masculine and tempting.
"Our first date, girlfriend. You want to pay up now or later?" He smiled with
that adorable boyish grin that got her heart pumping wildly. Yes, she wanted
those lips on hers, but she would play cool to the end, even if it killed her.
It certainly did feel like she would die if she kept holding back.
"You know, people don't actually call each other girlfriend or boyfriend. It's
just a term."
"So what do you want me to call you? My mate?"
"Definitely not." But damned if it didn't sound hot. "Besides, we're not
"It's the word my people use. There's nothing wrong with it." Delius put the car
into drive and pulled out of the parking lot. The car drove like a dream, smooth and powerful. She compared it to Delius, which only served to make her hotter.
By this point, there was a separate pulse between her legs, strong and
demanding, making her squirm in her seat. Her body screamed at her to throw
herself at him, but she wasn't a slut. She had self-control. Didn't she?
"What's wrong with just calling me Selina? That's my name."
"Okay. Are you hungry, Selina?" His voice rang deep and seductive without an ounce of effort. Even hearing him say her name reminded her of erotic poetry.
She wanted to ask him to repeat her name over and over and over.

Thoughts: Fate has never been kind to Delius. He is a fear demon - feeding on humans fears, creating terrible nightmares for sleeping victims. He is the boogeyman in the closet and he detests every minute of it. When he becomes trapped in Selina's mind, it is too much. He can't pull away. She's too tempting with her seductive thoughts. But for them to truly be together Delius will have to abandon his race and give up his destiny....
This is the first book in the Immortal Love series and one that I enjoyed. A curious story of demons and nightmares. I found the whole concept interesting. As demon stories go, I thought this one was unique. Fearless Desires is a compelling story. Full of passion and destiny, very seductive. I loved Delius and his brothers. Stacey Espino has written a delectable tale - that takes you away.

Melissa’s Review: Fearless Desires by Stacey Espino is book one in the Immortal Love series. It also seems that this is Ms. Espino’s first published work. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a sucker for erotic paranormal romance, and even more so a sucker for a series. I was immediately impressed by the smooth, captivating writing voice from, what I am assuming is, an inexperienced author. If this is Ms. Espino’s first book, I can only imagine her future books and the success she will experience in her writing career.
The premise in this book is new and fresh, and quite unique. Of course, I have read other paranormal romances that deal with demons, but the spin put on the demons in this book is one I have never come across. It was not only intriguing, but very refreshing.
Each character, main and secondary alike, made a big impact on this story with their very own flair and style. In the very beginning, when I was introduced to Delius’ brothers, I was almost overwhelmed and worried that maybe there would be too much going on with characters. However, I was very wrong. Each character added just the right amount of spice, but never overshadowed the plot, flow or pace of this book.
Delius and Selina were so much fun, even if I did want to smack their foreheads for them when they figured out Selina’s true lineage. It was obvious to me early on in the book, maybe a little too obvious, while being completely unclear to the characters. For me, that was my only disappointment in the book. I love it when suspense is thrown in and the need is there to keep guessing throughout the story, but I guessed this secret right away and it just became clearer that I was right. The bad part was, while it was clear to me, the characters didn’t even think in that direction. I guess maybe because I had more information as a third party looking in from the outside.
That being said, I simply cannot wait for the next installment in this series. I am so intrigued by the brothers, and if I remember correctly from my research, the next book will be all about Javen. I am certain his story is going to be even more interesting and explosive as Delius’.
If you are looking for a new erotic paranormal romance book or series, I do recommend that you pick Fearless Desires up right away. And if you are simply looking to try out a new author, Stacey Espino is certainly one to give a try. She earned a fast fan in me with Fearless Desires!
