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.

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks

Vampire MineNothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .
After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
Until Marielle . . .
She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss? (courtesy of HarperCollins.com)

Kerrelyn Sparks Love at Stake series is fun and sexy.  This is book 10 for the series and I picture at least 2 more from the set up we find in this book...

Our main vamp is one of my favorite in the series - Connor - he's holding the sanity and security of his friends and family by straws.  All around the vampires are succumbing to love.  He's helped make connections and tried to keep his friends on track, but he's a red-headed scot with a chip on his shoulder.  I'm so happy he's finally getting his own book!  

Sparks pulls in a new paranormal element with a fallen angel and a few demons.  Could there have been a little more heat?  Maybe, but Connor is not with out honor and how can you defile an angel?  

I love the humor with the things that come out of Marielle's mouth as she tries to learn the ropes on earth.  She stops Connor dead in his tracks (no pun intended) and picks up quickly on how to twist her innocence.  

Over all, Loved how Sparks keeps up the action with Caismir, gives us the humor, and keeps up the steam --- anxiously awaiting to see who's next on the list for a book.
