Vein of Love (Blackest Gold) (Volume 1) - R. Scarlett

Molly was turning nineteen and that was suppose to mean ultimate freedom. But molly felt anything but free. Molly called September and said she was going to Stella’s for the birthday party Stella was having for her. She wouldn’t stay late as she had to work at the museum the next day. Fifteen years ago a ring had been put on Molly’s finger when she was six and no one could seem to get it off her finger. Michael came over to  say hi , he had been the guy who had went out of his way to make her comfortable the first day of ninth grade.But Michael had kept her in the friend zone ever since. Molly would get added strength at random moments and she could never control it. Molly had then been attacked by a woman who had snakes for her hair and just as she was going to bite Molly’s neck a man- Tensley came and broke her neck. Tensley was with a young woman-Lex- about the same age as Molly and they took Molly home Lex told Molly the thing that attacked her had been a gorgon and had her own agenda for Molly.Molly swung hard at Tensley with the poker in the stomach as the ordered they had to get her out of there as Molly was being followed. Then Lex introduced herself and told Molly they were the least of her worries.Lex also told Molly she didn’t have to worry they were going to keep her safe. Tensley then said three hundred years of protection for what? Tensley said he knew a lot about Molly. Molly wanted to know how Tensley knew about her. Derek was Molly’s father and he told Tensley to get out and Tensley reminded Derek of the contract that was made in his ancestor's blood. Tensley’s family had protected Derek’s family for three hundred years in exchange for a daemon who possessed the blessed eyes from Derek’s bloodline. Then Molly took Tensley up to her room and he told her he was an incubus, a demon. Then T^ensley told Molly she was his fiancee. Also that Molly didn’t know it yet but her eyes held a rare power. That as his wife Molly’s power would become Tensley’s as well. Then Tensley told molly Incubi receive power, energy and strength from physical contact. Tensley also told molly if she tried to hide he would break all her father’s limbs. Now Molly felt terror for her family. Tensley’s father came into his office and told him what Dubre Abaddan wanted and he also requested to see Tensley. Tensley knew not to make his father mad but he grew restless from taking orders from someone else. Tensley had been bred to take over the business of serving the Prince. His family was depending on Tensley to resurrect their name after Beau’s scandal. Evelyn had been with Tensley five years then a week ago Tensley told her he had to marry in an arranged marriage. She showed up at his office and told tensley to figure something out soon. Molly’s eyes white eyes glow when her emotions are heightened. Demons are not allowed to feel emotions. Molly’s ring had been keeping her identity hidden but the magic has worn off. Others are able to detect Molly now and wanted her. When Tensley touches her Molly feels something. Molly goes to a  group of demon hunters to help her break the contract.  When Molly went to the demon hunters she didn’t want anyone to die. But molly was making the situation between demons and hunters worse.

I liked this new twist on demons. I didn’t like how Tensley was a jerk but also understood he had to show no feelings. Also Molly could be very stubborn.The story kept my interest all the way to  the end then the cliffhanger ruined it for me so that brought this down to a three. I don’t care for cliffhangers in any form. I basically liked the characters and the ins and outs of  this story but the cliffhanger ruined it for me.
