Welcome to our blog!
Amy and Jennifer ARE Seduced by Books. We’re both in our 30’s, moms, close friends, work together, and share many of the same interests including our love of reading. Amy grew up in Maryland and has been obsessed with Vampires for as long as she can remember. Jenn grew up in Florida and loves the furry, the fey, and the fangs, in that order. Currently we are both in Orlando, FL. When we can be pulled away from books, Amy loves to bake and Jenn loves to take pictures and scrap.
We decided to create a place where we could direct friends, and acquaintances for, book suggestions/recommendations (Jenn’s been known to talk to strangers on the train while traveling in NYC). Once we started out with a simple page, we evolved from there. Now we are sharing our book reviews, fun comments, recipes, and giveaways. We try to give reviews on new releases, pre-releases, and oldies but goodies that we read, or are reading. We’re going to be adding author interviews for established and up and coming authors soon.

Cross Your Heart - by Michele Bardsley

Even vampires are afraid of ghosts.

After the death of my husband - and my dreams of motherhood - i returned to the family estate in Broken Heart, Oklahoma.  Little did I know I would literally give up my life as Elizabeth Bretton, the Silverstone heiress. The whole undead situation calls for a drink - blood martini, straight up, please.

Escaping the past isn't that easy - especially when someone else's past is out to get me.  Now I have a vengeful ghost trying to kill me, a 150-year old mystery to solve, and an outrageous were-jaguar named Tezozomoc "Tez" Abraham Elvis Jones trying to get into my boudoir. Tez is a homicide detective who is vulgar, egotistical, presumptuous, and ridiculously hot. Meow, indeed.   (summary via the back of the book)

If you haven't read the Broken Heart series, I highly recommend checking it out.  Michele Bardsley creates a paranormal world full of humor, great characters, and interesting plots.

I was so excited for Cross Your Heart, and it definitely lived up to my expectations.  This is book seven in the series, and like all the others, it absolutely didn't disappoint!   Each book in this series has managed to pull me into the story from page one.  In this book we meet Elizabeth Bretton, a very prim and proper vampire who ends up with a ghost after her.  Then we meet Tez, a hunky, flirty were-jaguar - pretty much the complete opposite of Elizabeth.  The banter between the two of them is hot, as well as funny!  Then again, Bardsley always gives her readers great, steamy scenes as well as plenty of some good laughs!

Together Elizabeth and Tez, along with the other residents of Broken Heart that we've met in previous books, try to solve the problem of the ghost and the mystery that goes with it. Something is causing strange behavior and fighting within many of the loving couples in Broken Heart.  Is it the ghost, or something more sinister?

In case you couldn't tell, I love this series, and loved this book.  I'm already looking forward to the next one!   :)  Definitely a fun read.  I give it 4 slices!
