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.

On Sale October 26, 2010 

This book is HOT!  Three very seductive, steamy, suspenseful stories in one book had me riveted.  You don't have to read the series by either of the 3 authors before getting started with this book.  I have previously read Jeaniene Frost (both Night Huntress series) and Sharie Kohler (Moonchasers series) and have Shayla Black on my wish list, so I was THRILLED to see this anthology with all three of them.  I got a sneak peek at RWA 2010 from Sharie Kohler herself.  

Jeaniene Frost takes us to another realm, Nocturna, lead by Raphael, who is a fascinating, spicy Partial that has quickly taken an interest in our suspicious Mara who seeks revenge for her cousin.  Mara finds herself confused and betrayed as she uncovers who kidnapped her cousin.  Just as she thinks she is on the right path, she find that she is mated and in an interesting twist.  Frost gave us some very racy scenes that had me longing, with an interesting plot and outcome.  I definitely wanted more of Nocturna...

Shayla Black takes us on an emotional ride as we fall instantly in love with Raiden and Tabitha.  Raiden has given Tabitha her dream, but can he follow through?  Of course, you are not left seeking any thing with this short, my favorite sexy scenes are intense. 

Sharie Kohler, who I must thank for this ARC, wrapped me quickly with her short based on her Moonchasers series, which I LOVE.  Luc is unique and thrown into a difficult situation.  As Lycan with a twist he is out to be killed, when his murderer is a gorgeous woman that has his remembering his past.  While trying to save her, he is stuck helping her cope with her change, and giving her what she needs.  THANKFULLY, that is sweaty sex :) I can't wait for the next Moonchasers book, My Soul to Keep.  

Needless to say, but necessary, I LOVED this anthology.  The shorts were the perfect length, I was left breathlessly waiting for more.  I hope these 3 team up again, and I am definitely longing for more of all 3 of them.  I was in the world, detailed that I felt right along with the characters.  The "romance" was hard, fast, slow, sensual, that's right, all the ways we need it.  All three stories had action and suspense.  I give it 4 1/2 slices :) 


  1. Wow this sounds like a very delicious book, ill be on the look out for this one, i love discovering new authors and these blogs are a great way of doing that. :)

  2. I LOVE Shayla Black!! I bought and read everything she wrote in a few months. Her Wicked Lovers series is my fav and then I bought her Doomsday Brethren series. Jeaniene Frost is one of my all time favs too with Night Huntress series.. so this book is one I'm about to die for. I have never read the other author, but look forward to it. I've preordered for this already.

  3. I'm sure you will enjoy - due keep me posted. I had Shayla Black on my list, but she moved up to the top to start her series. Just grabbed a few at the store - I loved Frost before and in this book. Kohler - I've loved her, and I think you will too.
