"In a place where ecstasy can cost you your life . . .
She's a demon-slayer who hungers for sensual pleasure-but fears it will always be denied her. Until Tayla Mancuso lands in a hospital run by demons in disguise, and the head doctor, Eidolon, makes her body burn with unslakable desire. But to prove her ultimate loyalty to her peers, she must betray the surgeon who saved her life.
Two lovers will dare to risk all.
Eidolon cannot resist this fiery, dangerous woman who fills him with both rage and passion. Not only is she his avowed enemy, but she could very well be the hunter who has been preying upon his people. Torn between his need for the truth and his quest to find his perfect mate before a horrific transformation claims him forever, Eidolon will dare the unthinkable-and let Tayla possess him, body and soul . . ."
Eidolon loves his brothers so much, he's willing to sacrifice himself in order to keep them from getting hurt or from dying. He's also loyal to the oath he took, to always care for the creatures who come into his hospital. Even an enemy. So when one of his nurses bring a demon slayer into the hospital, Tayla, he treats her like she's just another patient. He didn't exactly liked her job description, but he didn't hurt her and he didn't let others hurt her while she was in his hospital.
Tayla is one of those people who sees only black and white. If humans can be good and bad, demons are only bad. The same goes for vampires, werewolves and all the other non-human creatures. I can't exactly blame her for that belief. She saw her mother getting raped and killed by a demon, who she later found out was the worst kind of demon. So when the Aegi, a human organization dedicated to killing all the creatures that go bump in the night, offer her an opportunity to avenge her mother and to protect the other humans to never go through the same situation as her, Tayla accepts it. So when she wakes up in a demon hospital, she's more than just furious. Especially when she realizes she's very attracted to her demon doctor, Eidolon.
I loved the universe in this series. It's unique and fresh. Even though he might seem soft, I don't think another character would've been better for a series opener than Eidolon. I still have two books left in this series, but I hope in the near future we'll get another book in this series. I'm not really ready to let go of this universe.
