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.

Twilight Prophecy by Maggie Shayne

Twilight Prophecy (Children of Twilight)
According to ancient prophecy, there's only one chance to avert the complete annihilation of the Undead. Twins James William and Brigit Poe, part human, part vampire, believe that they are that chance. In truth, the key lies with the reclusive—and mortal—scholar Lucy Lanfair.

As Armageddon approaches, antivampire sentiment fuels a war neither side can win, driving James to abandon his moral code and draw Lucy into a deadly battle she wants no part of.

But Lucy soon realizes that she holds this powerful immortal's soul in her hands and that it's her destiny not only to stop a war but to save him from his inner darkness. If she fails, his race will die—and so will her heart. Is the power of love strong enough to save the world?(courtesy of Amazon) 

Wings in the Night - Children of Twilight

Intense new read in the Wings in the Night series! More about the twins – love it! First having boy/girl twins, I’m partial to stories about them anyway. Maggie Shayne does our twins well. It’s too they are forever connected and they are the completion of each other.

Shayne gives the twins their halves – in this book we dive more in to JW – James, the good twin. Or so he thinks…

Shayne has a very creative mind. This book takes her origins of vampires to another level and brings on their potential end. Constant running for survival, defending themselves, and still trying to keep hope and love alive, all a roller coaster of excitement.

Each piece and part fit just so well. I think the ending wrapped a little quicker than I hoped, but it definitely left me ready for Twilight Fulfilled – Brigit’s story – the other twin :)

Start from the beginning with this series, there are about 20 books total and these series is very well done. Shayne reps vampires and the paranormal, she’s an original to the genre. I had the pleasure of seeing her at a RWA signing event and she is a very nice person on top of it, she embodies the Wiccan element.
