Larissa Ione on Base Instincts: A Demonica Story ~ Blog Tour, Guest Blog, Local Giveaway

Prism Book Alliance® would like to thank Larissa Ione for stopping by today.


Title: Base Instincts: A Demonica Story
Author: Larissa Ione
Publisher: Riptide
Cover Artist: Jay Aheer
Genre: Gay Fiction, M/M Romance, Paranormal


As a Seminus demon, Raze’s life literally depends on having sex with females. The problem is that he doesn’t desire females, and it’s physically impossible for him to be with males. Thankfully, he and his best friend, Fayle, have an arrangement that keeps him alive . . . if lonely. He finds some solace in his work as a medic at Thirst, a vampire club known for its rough clientele. But his carefully structured world turns upside down when he meets a mysterious male who makes him want what he can never have.

Slake is an assassin used to getting what he wants, and what he wants is Raze. But he also wants to earn back the soul he sold when he was a much different demon. All he has to do is capture a runaway succubus named Fayle and hand her over to her family. What he doesn’t count on is being caught himself by a web of lies—and his attraction to Raze.

Raze and Slake must navigate a dangerous world to be together. But as Fayle’s jealousy of their relationship turns deadly, they find themselves embroiled in a battle not only for their love, but their lives and souls.

Hello, everyone!

I’m thrilled to be here to celebrate the release of Base Instincts!

For those who don’t know, Base Instincts takes place in my Demonica/Lords of Deliverance world, and while I’ve written m/m stories before (as Sydney Croft), this is the first for this particular universe.

What truly makes this book unique is that one of the heroes, Raze, is a Seminus demon,  an incubus – a sex demon that can only survive by having sex with females…but he happens to be gay.

The setup for this was a challenge, because from the very first book, Pleasure Unbound, I made it very clear that Seminus demons cannot be with males. Ever. And they will die without a female.

But anyone who reads my books knows that I like to break rules, so when I decided to write Raze’s story, I knew I had to dig deep for a loophole in the laws I set down for my world.

Want to know how I did it? Be sure to check out Base Instincts, available on 9/14 from Riptide, and don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win Demonica/LOD swag and the first two books in the series!

  4. I am really looking forward to reading Base Instincts. I have it on my Kindle (pre-ordered) but am finishing another book before diving into this one 🙂 I am really looking forward to seeing how you get around the Seminus demon having to be with the opposite sex thing 🙂 I KNOW I will love this book, that is just a given *grin*
