Fire And Ice: Seasons of the Vampire I By Maya DeLeina

Fire and Ice (Seasons of the Vampire I)

*Submitted for review by author*

Genre:
Paranormal Romance, Erotic

Description:
Noel Tierney thought she’d have enough time before the predicted storm to make it to her holiday retreat, but the snow hit sooner than expected. Caught unprepared on a treacherous pass, poor visibility and icy conditions lead to a crash. She lay immobile in her vehicle, stranded in a ditch in the most remote leg of her journey.

A faceless hero comes to her rescue and Noel has no choice but to wait out the blizzard in her rescuer’s unique cabin nestled in the woods. Everything about Grayson James peaks her curiosity—his valor, air of mystery and most of all, undeniable attractiveness.


For three days and nights, passions are unleashed and unexpected emotions are brought to life. When the storm breaks, Grayson vanishes into thin air, but not before revealing startling news that leaves her questioning her sanity.


Fast forward years later and Noel is in the southernmost part of the United States. She’d come seeking solace after her husband’s tragic death, but what finds her in Key West is more than she ever anticipated.


In the sultry summer, her unbridled winter’s ecstasy resurrects.


And so does the Vampire.


Review


I will start off my saying that I have read some real doozy of plot twists in my book reading life but the ending/epilogue to this one really took the cake! I did not see that coming and it left me both intrigued and mind blown but also disappointed that Grayson and everything might be…

Well… I won’t ruin it by going into any more detail, you will have to get the book to find out for yourself. Though I suppose the beauty of the way the ending was written, everyone will most likely have a different interpretation of what it means.

As usual with a piece written by Maya DeLeina, the story telling and description of every moment is wonderfully done, it really captures the moment and allows you to imagine every element of what is happening. I liked how the plot progressed, it didn’t feel rushed to get where the story needed to go and it flowed smoothly.

The steamy scenes were some of the more heated and screen meltingly good that I have come across in a while, though some of the sexual dialog was a touch much in some instances for me however it wasn’t off-putting and didn’t affect my overall enjoyment of the read. If you are after a refreshing story from the other paranormal romances out there this might be one for you to consider. I’d give this read a rating of four stars.

USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy returns to the tantalizing world of Club Sin in an enticing novel of control and surrender.

 
Porter Marshall has nearly achieved his goal of becoming a Club Sin Master, but his new sub poses a much bigger challenge than he anticipated. Despite their mutual attraction and red-hot dungeon sessions, Kenzie Hart plays her own games. Her bratty, you-can’t-break-me attitude masks terrible personal hurt—pain that only the exquisite touch of a skilled Dom can release.

 Kenzie can’t ignore the raw, fierce bond she has with Porter. But she can’t give in to his dangerous demands, either. Is the passion they share real, or is he using her to solidify his status at Club Sin? And yet, who else can she trust with the shattering secrets she holds within? As Porter expertly brings her to the point of no return, Kenzie surrenders her body—and, piece by piece, her heart.
 
Tamed is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.
