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.

A Scarlet Past by Evanne Lorraine

A Scarlet PastAs World War II heats up, so does the secret battle on the home front. For two touch-starved werewolf warriors, mating is more than pleasure—it’s a matter of survival. Vivian heals the fissures in Fergus’s humanity. Though he saved Vivian’s life, she’s an Alpha bitch unable to meekly submit to any male. Both try to dominate the other, when surrendering to their deepest desires is the only chance of victory. (courtesy of Amazon)

This book is a short - a prequel to the series Treeland Pack by Evanne Lorraine, the first book A Taste of Scarlet is due out January 2011.  

Given that it was a prequel, I expected a quick set up.  Lorraine promises erotic paranormal, and she definitely gives us that. This book has many great provocative sex scenes.  Fergus and Vivian are hot together, two alphas hooking up, you can't beat that.  If you are looking for just that, this short will get you a fix.  

From a story line basis, I get the feeling the next books could go in ANY direction and it makes me want to check it out.  I was a little disappointed in the setting - supposedly in the WWII era, they seemed to have a lot of modern conveniences.  The character set up was simple and led you on their path of forming a relationship, but I didn't have a chance to get attached.  Aside from learning about our characters and beginning their relationship, there wasn't much of an intriguing plot.  Again, I can completely expect this prequel to be more of a long prologue and our first book is going to hit the ground running.  If Lorraine keeps up the heat, I'll at least dive in for a little enjoyment.  

Don't let the cover fool you, this is definitely not sci-fi, it's werewolf paranormal, with sexy nips :) Snag it up for Kindle .99 cents right now at Amazon
