Hot Vampire Seduction is the second book in a hot, erotic vampire series, but stands alone as its own story. Reading out of order will not hurt the enjoyment of the story.
The underground vampire population of Austin, Texas has taken to hosting orgies with human women who've been forced to indulge in a new aphrodisiac. The drug, Blood Red, is a mixture of a rare type of werewolf blood and that of a vampire. Blood Red creates an insatiable desire for sex in the user to the point of pain in the absence of pleasure. Sometimes that pain leads to death.
Vampire Warden, Aiden Brooks, has spent more than a hundred years enforcing the laws of his race, and life has taught him that anyone that he allows into his world ends up dead. Despite knowing this all too well, having painfully loved and lost in his past, when his search for the creator of Blood Red places coroner Kelly Riggs directly in both his path, and that of a dangerous clan of vampires, his desire for her goes well beyond offering her protection. He's drawn to her bravery, seduced by her feisty spirit and beauty, but he is determined to resist her, fearing he will put her in harms way.
But Kelly is already on the radar of the enemy, and when she gets too close to the evil vampire clan's secrets, she is given Blood Red. Now Aiden's hunger for her might be the only thing that can keep her alive but who will save her from him?
Explicit -- hot! Ménage included; you have been warned.
Vampires, werewolves, hybrids, a forensic scientist and romance - who could ask for more? From zero to sixty in no time with both action and story development. Can't wait to read more from Lisa Renee Jones!
This is the story of the second brother, Aiden, in the continuing story of the Brooks vampire wardens story and how he meets Kelly. I haven't read the first book in the series yet, which always makes me a bit antsy, but I was completely comfy with reading this out of order as it is truly a stand alone story.
This has a great story line, sexy well developed characters (a feat in a short novella) and steamy romance with hot chemistry.
I hope Jones decides to write a full length novel featuring these characters introduced in the three brothers' novellas.
Quick note on my sexual rating of Steamy (2 of 4). Even though there is some oral and a ménage, the sex is not very detailed or graphic and the scenes are quick (as one might expect in a novella). This is not a bad thing, nor a criticism, just an explanation as to why a story with elements of a Hot! (3) or a Four Alarm Fire (4) rating has a Steamy one instead.
