Review: Hot Vampire Seduction by Lisa Renee Jones

Hot Vampire Seduction

Hot Vampire Seduction

The underground vampire population of Austin, Texas has taken to hosting orgies with human women who’ve been forced to indulge in a new aphrodisiac.The drug, Blood Red, is a mixture of a rare type of werewolf blood and that of a vampire. Blood Red creates an insatiable desire for sex in the user to the point of pain in the absence of pleasure. Sometimes that pain leads to death.

Vampire Warden, Aiden Brooks, has spent more than a hundred years enforcing the laws of his race, and life has taught him that anyone that he allows into his world ends up dead. Despite knowing this all too well, having painfully loved and lost in his past, when his search for the creator of Blood Red places coroner Kelly Riggs directly in both his path, and that of a dangerous clan of vampires, his desire for her goes well beyond offering her protection. He’s drawn to her bravery, seduced by her feisty spirit and beauty, but he is determined to resist her, fearing he will put her in harms way. But Kelly is already on the radar of the enemy, and when she gets too close to the evil vampire clan’s secrets, she is given Blood Red. Now Aiden’s hunger for her might be the only thing that can keep her alive but who will save her from him?

I just finished this book today. And it was fantanstic. Loved Lisa's take on vamps especially their natural evolutions. And Kelly is one of my alltime favorite heroines. She smart, feisty, beautiful, and cuts right to the chase. She's also not one to allow her fear to control her. She controls it. She gives as good as she gets. Of course Aiden as the older, sexy, vamp is wonderful but he's proves that old vamps can learn new tricks. And of course the menage doesn't hurt this book one bit lol. I am so waiting for Troy book and I am looking forward learning more about Marcus. I am going to have to get the first one this weekend. I was sent this one by the author and I give it 4 1/2 stars.

Hot Vampire Kiss


Book one, Evan’s story

The werewolf population is entrenched in a century long civil war, and now they are plagued by a virus that is turning wolves into killers. The Brooks brothers pursue one such rogue werewolf to Temple, Texas. It is in Temple that Evan encounters a beautiful nurse named Marissa who instantly melts the hundred years of ice running through his veins. When she is brutally attacked by the wolf, he breaks the rules of the Vampire Council and uses his blood to save her. Now, if he doesn’t kill the wolf by the next full moon, Marissa will become a killer wolf, and he will be sentenced to death.



Three hours later, the bar was closed, but Evan had ensured that Marissa lingered in her seat, a drink in front of her. He wasn’t about to allow her to leave without him, and not just because of the wolf he was certain would have her in his sight. No – there was more to his desire to keep Marissa nearby. Plain and simple, he wanted her, and not just physically, though there was no question, she got him hot and hard. He was, after all, a male, a vampire male, with primal, sexual instincts that had him imagining all kinds of wicked ways to make her scream his name. But what really had him by the balls was not the desire she created in him, but the way she’d made him laugh when he’d have sworn it wasn’t possible. The way she’d made him smile when he was certain he had no reason. The way she’d made him realize how empty a century of hunting had made him and he wanted to know why, and how, a woman he barely knew could do such things. The time for discovery, both in and out of bed, was not now though.

He wiped down the counter, working toward closing up the bar, focused on getting Marissa out of here safely. To ensure the wolf didn’t target her, as he normally did the friends and acquaintances of his victims.

All but done with the fa├žade of this night’s bartender duties, he cast a quick, seductive glance at Marissa, making no attempt to tame the primal heat in his stare. She wasn’t for him, he told himself silently. She was a forever kind of girl, and not the kind of forever he could give her. Nevertheless, when she smiled shyly at him, his groin tightened, cock thickening against his zipper, and he knew he wasn’t walking away without fucking her every which way she’d have him.

He tossed the rag down, and rounded the bar, eliminating the counter that had separated them all night, to stand beside her, his hand on the back of her stool. She turned to face him, the scent of her teasing his nostrils, his arm creating an intimate enclosure, trapping her between the counter and his body. She was his in that moment and the idea appealed to him far more than it should. One tilt of his head and his teeth could touch that delicate, pale neck. His lips her lips. His body her body.

She glanced up at him, her long, dark lashes fluttering with a combination of uncertainty and desire, her pupils dilated with the effects of the alcohol she’d consumed.

“You really are…tall,” she whispered.

“And you,” he said, brushing a finger over her chin, “really are beautiful.” And innocent. Too innocent and perfect for the likes of him.

She shivered. “Tall and a smooth talker, I think I should be afraid.” Her palm slid down the bar. “Ouch!” She drew her hand forward, red pooling on her index finger, a splinter of wood sticking out from the red center.

Instant lust fired through Evan as he took the opportunity presented and snatched the splinter away before he drew her finger to his lips. The sweet taste of her blood exploded on his taste buds, filling him with lust, desire — fueling the sexual side of his vampire nature, when he already wanted this woman to the point of white-hot demand. His gums tingled, his recessed cuspids threatening to extend.

His eyes met hers, the scent of her arousal, the taste of her blood, seeping through him with a demand that he claim her, claim satisfaction. Somewhere in the back of the bar a door slammed shut. The sound was a jolt of reality that shook Evan just enough to calm the beast inside him threatening to take control of him, of her.

Slowly his tongue swirled around her finger, and then he released it, inspecting the area where the splinter had been.

“All better,” he said.

A stunned look etched her features. “I was right,” she whispered.

His brows dipped, “Rright?”

“When I said I should be afraid of you,” she explained. “Because there is no way that what you just did should not bother me but it…”

He leaned close, sliding his face against hers, his lips near her ear, his mouth far too close to the vein he hungered to puncture — for his own good – most certainly for her own good. And yet, he found himself asking, “Aroused you?”

She drew a breath. “Yes.”

“As it did me,” he assured her, and silently wondered if perhaps it was him that should be afraid of her, for the way she stole his reserve, his caution. His control.

He leaned back, offering her his hand to help her stand. “I won’t bite,” he promised. “Not unless you ask me to.” And damn how he wished she would, how he wanted to convince her she should.

She laughed, nervously. “I’ve never asked a man to bite me in my life,” she said, pressing her palm against his.

He brought her fingers to his lips. “Then I could be the first.”

Her eyes went wide, “To bite me?”

“In the most pleasurable of ways,” he assured her.

She blushed. “I must be drunk,” she said, “because I so believe you. Probably a sign I need to go home.”

“I’ll drive you and take a cab home,” he offered. “Then you’ll have your car tomorrow.”

She considered him a moment. “I should say no.”

“But you’re going to say yes.”

Answer Lisa's question and be in the running to win her goody bag. If you follow my blog you'll get another entry. Stay tuned tomorrow for my review on her second book in this series.

Review: Touch of Crimson by Sylvia Day

A Touch of Crimson

Product Description


Adrian Mitchell is a powerful angel leading an elite Special Ops unit of Seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen--angels who have become vampires--and command a restless pack of indentured lycans. But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals--losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her--Shadoe--her soul once more inhabiting a new body, with no memory of him. And this time, he won't let her go...

To me it is very ironic that Adrian punished the Fallen for the same thing he does. He tore their wings off and made them vampires for daring to mate with humans.   Granted his mate was half angel half human since she was the daughter of one of the Fallen and a mortal.  But she was partially human so in my opinion that's the same thing. I really liked this book and think that is a new take on vamps and angels. I am looking forward to reading more in this series. My only problem with this book was that it ended rather abruptly. I'm not sure if this was the issue with the book or the e-version I received from Netgalley. At least Adrian and Lindsey aka Shadoe were together but there were several issues with who was orchestrating the war between the fallen, angels and lycans that were never solved. According to the clues it looks like it could be several folks bringing this about including at least one angel.

Like I said I am awaiting the next book very impatiently lol. This book was provided electronically from Netgalley free of charge for an honest and unbiased review. I give this book 4 stars

Sneak Peek: Hunter's Rise By Shiloh Walker

Hunter's Rise Due April 2012

I love this cover and I want this book. Am adding to my wishlist.

Review:This Side of the Grave by Jeannine Frost

Product Description

Danger waits on both sides of the grave.

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband Bones have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they've triumphed over the latest battle, Cat's new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance...

With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage. Now Cat and Bones are forced to seek help from a dangerous "ally"--the ghoul queen of New Orleans herself. But the price of her assistance may prove more treacherous than even the threat of a supernatural war. say nothing of the repercussions Cat never imagined.

I loved this book. As normal Cat and Bones are great. Their relationship is solid but Apollyon is determined to end Cat one way or another and has stirred up the ghouls to that end. And if the vamps knew how she fed and what it does for her a bunch of them would be glad to help. With the help of their new ally they manage to avert all out war but it leaves Cat to face the consequences which might be more than she can handle. We shall see. I am looking forward to the next one in this series as well as as the spin-offs. This one was not as meaty as some of the others but overall was a well enjoyed read. I give it 4 stars and I bought and paid for this one all on my lonesome.

Review: Tangled Threads by Jennifer Estep

Product Description

I’d rather face a dozen lethal assassins any night than deal with something as tricky, convoluted, and fragile as my feelings.

But here I am. Gin Blanco, the semi-retired assassin known as the Spider. Hovering outside sexy businessman Owen Grayson’s front door like a nervous teenage girl. One thing I like about Owen: he doesn’t shy away from my past—or my present. And right now I have a bull’s-eye on my forehead. Cold-blooded Fire elemental Mab Monroe has hired one of the smartest assassins in the business to trap me. Elektra LaFleur is skilled and efficient, with deadly electrical elemental magic as potent as my own Ice and Stone powers. Which means there’s a fifty-fifty chance one of us won’t survive this battle. I intend to kill LaFleur—or die trying—because Mab wants the assassin to take out my baby sister, Detective Bria Coolidge, too. The only problem is, Bria has no idea I’m her long-lost sibling . . . or that I’m the murderer she’s been chasing through Ashland for weeks. And what Bria doesn’t know just might get us both dead. . . .

I absolutely love this series. And in this book Jennifer pulls us further into Gin's world and we learn more Owen whom I am hoping is a good as he seems. Mab makes a bad mistake in this book by going after Bria and of course we all know how Gin handles threats to those she loves. This allows us to find more about Gin's powers and how she's just as powerful an Ice Elemental as she is a Stone. I'm hoping Gin takes Mab out cause we find out that she'll use anyone to get information that she needs. I am so looking forward to the next book this to see her get her just deserts lol. I am going to give this one a 4 1/2 stars. I purchased this book for my own personal use.
