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 Wolven by Deborah LeBlanc

The Wolven (Harlequin Nocturne)Someone—or something—is systematically murdering the members of Danyon Stone's werewolf pack. As Alpha, he knows that finding and punishing the murderous entity is his responsibility, and he's not about to rest until he sees justice done. But to stop the slayings he has to accept help from the most unlikely source—a wickedly sensual mortal woman.
Mystic-shop owner Shauna MacDonald has a special interest in the recent string of otherworldly deaths. As the Keeper of the werewolves, it's her duty to guard and protect the packs. Working by Danyon's side to stop an unknown killer—and trying to deny the potency of their illicit attraction—poses a threat to her heart unlike any she's ever known, ;and if she becomes the killer's next target, it could be the death of her….(courtesy of Amazon)

Book 3 in this Keepers series, The Wolven, definitely got me back on track.  I was disappointed with book 2, but book 3 really brought it home for me.  All 3 were written by different authors and I thought LeBlanc did the series well. 
LeBlanc took Shauna – our youngest sister of the Keepers – who we were only briefly introduced to, and gave her determination, pride, and strength.  Shauna may be the youngest but she shows her grown up side in this book.  The interesting thing about this book is that it was filled with action, mixed with a little mystery, a side of quick romance, and sexy scenes for dessert.  It’s a 4 course meal for sure. 
I was pleasingly caught off guard when our mystery was solved.  As we are lead through the story you are sure you are on the right track, when you take an interesting and shocking twist.  A thrill ride to be shared.  Danyon, only introduced to us in Book 2, was exactly what he needed to be and when he needed to be it; leaving of course, Shauna to be the leading lady.  I also enjoyed that the other characters were not forgotten, but they did not cloud this book.    
Quick read with great grab - 4 slices
