Blog Tour: Base Instincts Larissa Ione with Guest Post and Giveaway



A Word from Larissa Ione

Hi everyone! It’s good to be here! Today I’m going to answer a question I get quite often: If the Demonica Universe had a soundtrack, what would it be?

Now, I don’t generally make a soundtrack for my books, but these are songs that always make me think of the Demonica world and the people in it. For those who don’t know, the Demonica/Lords of Deliverance series is populated by demons, vampires, were-creatures, angels, fallen angels, and shapeshifters – it’s a dark, dangerous world, but there are lighter, campy moments, as well. This list reflects all of that, emerging as an oddball a mix of rock, alternative, country, and show tunes, but they all blend perfectly into the Demonica world – some have even been mentioned in the books.

So here it is, the official Demonica/Lords of Deliverance soundtrack!

  • Long Black Train by Josh Turner
  • Pain, by Three Days Grace
  • (Don’t Fear) The Reaper, by Blue Oyster Cult
  • Rest in Peace, from the Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Once More With Feeling soundtrack
  • Bad Moon Rising, by Creedence Clearwater Revival
  • Bad Things, by Jace Everett
  • Carry on Wayward Son, by Kansas
  • If You’re Going Through Hell, by Rodney Atkins
  • Remedy, by Seether

goodreads add to


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.

  32. I've never thought of a soundtrack for a book before, but I think it's a really cool idea. I think that "Indestructible by Disturbed" would be my choice for the Lord's. I shared your books with my mother and she loves them too. My 14 yr old has seen them and heard my mother and I talking and speculating about the characters and wants to read them as well. I am excited for a new addition t the series!

  33. I LOVE this series and am thrilled she added a M/M book ! Amazing author, fast past HOT series ! Though the soundtrack isnt my type of music i love the idea.

  34. This soundtrack speaks to me! I love most of the songs (pretty much the ones I've heard). I can't wait to read this one!
