Hades Squad Book#4, Demon Seed, was released on January 9, 2012 and here are some comments from reviewers:
Wow, this was freakin’ great! I absolutely flew through this. This book just had everything I loved. DEMON SEED is just one of those stories that takes hold from beginning to end. Jianne Carlo has become a favorite of mine with this series, and I am hoping that we haven’t seen the last of the Hades Squad because I love these guys! Rho, The Romance Reviews – TOP PICK
This is a wild and sexy romp through South America in true Jianne Carlo style. I was sucked into this story from the first page-I downloaded it for review at about 10:00P.M., and before I knew it, I had reached the end, and it was almost dawn! I laughed, I cried and I was pleasantly surprised at the twists at the end. Demon was right all along about Sister Helen not being an ordinary nun.

Demon Seed Blurb:
Demon’s carefully plotted revenge against the man who abused him, Pedro Nunez aka The Smiling Killer, is not off to a good start. For starters, he just rescued Pedro’s niece Jacinta, and now he’s falling in love with her. But just whose side is she on?
Demon Seed Excerpt – Adult Content – Erotic Contemporary SEAL Action Adventure:
Demon Seed’s set in the Amazon and in this scene Jacinta and Demon are in a restaurant on the mighty Orinoco, a river bordering the countries of Venezuela, Brazil, and Guyana.
“There’s no one else here.” The ceiling fan above them circulated delicious aromas Jacinta couldn’t pinpoint, save for the nutty smell of garlic baking.
Demon shoved the other chair to her side and sat. “I know.”
Jacinta stiffened when he lifted her onto his lap. Heat scaled her throat. “What’re you doing?”
“It’s called foreplay.”
He hadn’t understood. Jacinta didn’t want to spoil their evening, but she had to be honest. “I should like to tell you something.”
She studied the red and white checkered tablecloth. “I would prefer not to make love again.”
“Look at me.” He cupped her jaw and forced her to meet his gaze. “If you don’t want to, then we won’t.”
Relief had her light-headed. “Thank you.”
“Did you like it when I kissed you?”
She sighed. “Very much.”
“Kissing is part of foreplay.”
“Oh.” She knew she blushed all over for even her toes were on fire. “I should like to tell you something else.”
“I should like to know more of this foreplay if there is not the penetration part.” She gestured at his hardening erection half-hidden by her dress. “We simply do not fit. It is obvious now, of course. You need a much larger woman.”
He made a strangled noise and buried his face in the crook of her neck.
A plump woman approached the table bearing a round tray.
Jacinta tugged a lock of Demon’s hair, and, surprised by the silken texture, twined the sandy tresses around finger before freeing one springy wave. “Someone’s coming.”
“Senor Demon. Welcome back. The appetizers you ordered are ready.”
He wore a huge grin that enchanted Jacinta. She hadn’t noticed his three dimples before. “Gracias, Lucia. Will you open the wine and let it breathe?”
“Pronto.” For a large woman, she moved quickly. Before Jacinta could add her thanks, Lucia had disappeared. She peered at the tray.
“Try this one.” Demon offered her a pastry of some sort. “Open.”
He intended to feed her? But the pastry smelled heavenly. She took a small bite and closed her eyes in rapture as her taste buds exploded in delight. Shrimp doused with cream and butter, and a hint of garlic.
“I do believe you’re purring.” His warm breath feathered her cheek. “Hey. I get a turn too. Feed me the rest.”
She blinked, but took the remaining half-circle from him, and mimicked his actions. He stared into her eyes and licked her fingers clean when he finished his bite.
Jacinta shivered and that crackling electricity from the kiss returned with a vengeance. Fascinated, she watched his dexterous tanned fingers as he picked first one, then another appetizer before offering her another tempting morsel.
“This one’s a personal favorite. Take the whole thing in one bite.”
Oh, ecstasy. Succulent and tart and spicy. “Delicious. What is it?”
“A fish puff deep fried.”
“There was only one.” She checked the tray again.
“Then I’ll just have to taste you.”
His mouth trapped hers and taste her he did. A thorough, slow, exploration that had her toes curling and her insides fluttering. Her hands had a will of their own, and her fingers snaked up his chest to the bronzed skin revealed by the open shirt. So hot, his flesh, and so hard, and so tempting. She liked touching him, relished the steeliness of his big arms, the bulge halfway between his elbow and shoulder.
“My turn,” he murmured against her lips, the friction both ticklish and tantalizing. “Choose one for me.”
It took a few moments for his words to sink in. She picked the nearest appetizer — an orange colored tart decorated with a chopped cherry pepper, and held the oval morsel to his mouth. When he didn’t take a bite, Jacinta risked a quick peek to find him staring at her chest.
“Put it on my tongue.”
The temperature climbed a zillion degrees, and the short-sleeved dress that had been airy and light earlier had somehow turned into itchy wool. Such an intimate act feeding him with her fingers.
Jacinta held her breath and tried to do as he wished without touching his delightfully talented tongue. He snared her fingers lightly with his teeth. The slight nip and his intent gaze had her squirming, but she froze when her bottom encountered his organ — his oversized, rigid, organ. Madre de Dios, no wonder it had hurt.
“Your wine, senor.” Jacinta hadn’t heard the woman approach, but then again, the blood thundered so hard in her ears that she wouldn’t have heard an explosion going off right next to her.
“Have you ever had wine?” he asked, after Lucia had left.
“I stole some of the sacrificial wine once.” She wrinkled her nose. “It was not to my liking.”
“Try this one.” He set the glass to her lips. “Tiny sip.”
It was not what she remembered at all. “I like it.”
“You’ll like it even more from my lips.” He took a swallow and captured her mouth. Oh, the sensation of the warm, spicy wine, his dancing tongue, and the hand massaging her scalp proved overwhelming. She didn’t know how long they kissed, but when he broke away, she whimpered, and tried to pull him back.
“Will you do something for me?”
“Anything.” Anything at all if he’d kiss her again.
“I want you to show me your panties.”
