Celeste Nites Trilogy
Jacques is hypnotized by Celeste and makes plans for her seduction. Little did he know that it would be he who would be seduced. Seduced by her love, seduced by her body and inevitably seduced by her vampiric charms. But he is not the only one to fall for her seduction; there is another with a more eternal kiss of death on his mind.
Jacques and Armand track Celeste to New Jersey in a seedy bar on the Southside. Both brothers seduce her, trying to tempt her into their protection. Celeste again leaves unable to share her dark secret with these men though they prove to be steadily wearing her resist down with their sweet words and soft touches.
Jacques let's Armand have the lead in bringing back their elusive vixen. But Celeste is proving to be a very hard negotiator in bed and out of it.
This is an omnibus containing the first 3 eBooks in Moon's Celestial Nites series. It is written like a serial; which is a set of continuing short stories each beginning where the previous left off. Much like the 1940s and 1950s Flash Gordan series of little movie shorts, The Shadow radio shorts (of “Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of men? The Shadow knows!" fame) and much more recently, like Stephen King's originally released The Green Mile as a series of shorts of about about 90 - 140 pages every month for six months. Since it is written as a serial, this review is going to treat this as a book with 3 parts.
This erotic paranormal romance features Celeste, a petite vampire, sexy alpha male Jacques, who we find out in the second part is a mage, and his equally sexy brother, Armand, also a mage, who we meet in the second part.
The first part, Claiming Celeste, finds Jacques intrigued with Celeste who comes in the club every night to dance first with a partner or two, then dancing by herself and then goes home alone. He decides he has to have her and implements a plan to seduce her by dancing with her once every night. Very seductive and a 3 on the sensual scale of 1-4.
The second part, Hunting Celeste, has Celeste accidentally seducing Jacques where after she is on the run to NJ. Following her in fear of her safety, Jacques and his brother, Armand, when they find her, seduce her in a limousine in a sexy, hot ménage à trois. And then again in a hotel. They don't understand why she keeps leaving them at the end of the night when they are asleep. I give this a sensual rating of 4 out of 4.
In the third part, Sharing Celeste, she has disappeared again and the brothers are on the hunt for her again. When they find her, Armand, the less dominate brother, takes the lead to find out why she is running and won't stay with them. He talks her into a compromise and then seals the deal with some steamy post negotiation celebrating. Jacques walks in and decides he needs in on the celebration. This part gets a sensual rating of 3 out of 4.
This is a great story. I look forward to the next omnibus of 3 eBooks, to see where the story goes. Give this a lot more story material/substance and this could make a great full length erotic paranormal romance novel.
Don't miss this because you don't like continuing series stories. Fans of the paranormal romance and vampire genres should enjoy this. I certainly did.
