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.

The Keepers by Heather Graham

The Keepers (Silhouette Nocturne)At the core of New Orleans lie the otherworldly vampires and shape-shifters that hide in plain sight among mankind. As one of the Keepers, an elite group possessing superior skill and strength, Fiona MacDonald's duty is to maintain peace in a place where one vampire's bite could ignite war. When Detective Jagger DeFarge, a vampire, is called in at the discovery of a body drained of blood, both the detective and Fiona must join uneasy forces.
Jagger will stop at nothing to find the murderer— including working with the sensual and suspicious Fiona. As more die, it becomes clear that this isn't the work of an ordinary vampire. No one is safe. So when the killer's attention turns to Fiona, will Jagger risk destroying his own species to protect the woman he so passionately desires?

There are 3 Books in this Keepers series – This is book 1 (The Keepers), books 2 and 3 will be reviewed shortly (The Wolven and The Shifters), which are not written by Heather Graham, she teamed up with Deborah LeBlanc and Alexandra Sokoloff. 

This view on the supernatural world in New Orleans is extremely enthralling.  These sisters are unique with interesting and valuable abilities – Fiona is our oldest sister and has hardened herself over the last 2 years.  Graham has written Fiona to be strong willed and yet at the same time I felt vulnerable.  She is blinded by who she blames for the death of her parents. 

We are set to find a serial killer that could either be a vampire or ‘something else’, preying on beautiful blondes.  Working with Detective Jagger puts Fiona on high alert to her feelings for him.  Jagger is one hot vampire, set out to bring justice to this killer, even if it’s one of his own. 

Graham definitely knew when to turn up the heat.  She kept the storyline twisting and turning while giving us the steamy element of the forbidden romance.  Fiona has to come to terms with her feeling of placing blame as it blinds her to be open minded and she is still working hard to align herself as a Keeper.  Jagger is working hard to keep her safe, well and maybe that’s not all. 

The twist at the end was definitely not expected.  Well done!
