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.

Tall, Dark and Wolfish by Lydia Dare

Tall, Dark and WolfishIn Lydia Dare’s debut trilogy, Regency England has gone to the wolves!He’s lost the most important part of himself…Lord Benjamin Westfield is a powerful werewolf—until one full moon when he doesn’t change. His life now shattered, he rushes off to Scotland in search of the healer who can restore his inner beast, only to find she’s not at all what he expected…She would make him whole, if she could…Young, beautiful witch Elspeth Campbell will do anything to help anyone who calls upon her healing arts. Then Lord Benjamin shows up, and she suddenly discovers she may need him even more than he needs her…(courtesy of Amazon)

Check out our review of Book 1 - A Certain Wolfish Charm.  This is Book 2 in Lydia Dare's series - Tall, Dark and Wolfish.  I read this one first by accident, thankfully, these events happen at the same time as Book 1 so it wasn't spoiled too much.

Again set in 1800's, this time in Scotland (and briefly in England), Dare does the story right as she brings in the magical coven of witches into her werewolf stories.  As a brother has lost his beast, he heads in search for the only witch that can fix him, however what he finds is her beautiful irish daughter and a coven of witches that is extremely protective.  Their 'seer' has forwarned that a wolf will come and tear them apart.

Elspeth (Ellie) is a healer, and she stops at nothing to help all that she can.  Sadly, it's draining her.  When one comes to look for her mother's help, she is faced with a handsome Benjamin.  Once again, historical times, women on their own is unheard of, yet the women in these books, are quite strong and confident.  Ben and Ellie face the unforbidden.  As their relationship develops somehow there are so many misunderstandings that have them in the weirdest predicaments.

Dare gives us again delightful conversation, sexy heat, and a wonderful read!
