Longfellow Seduced by Violet Summers
Publisher: Loose ID
Genre: Contemporary, Paranormal
Length: Short (142 pgs)
Other: M/F
Rating: 4.5 Cherries
Review by: Fern

Magnus Crowe learned the hard way never to trust a beautiful woman, so when his partner Silas discovers that someone is stealing from their club, The Dungeon, Magnus is totally opposed to calling in a woman to fix it. Particularly a Longfellow woman.

Prudence Longfellow comes from an ancient line of woman warriors. Longfellows are healers, historians and guardians...and in her case, forensic accountants. She agrees to track the missing money at The Dungeon with one condition: Magnus Crowe must stay far away from her.

That's a promise easier made than kept. Pru might look like a little mouse, but she's a warrior at heart, and her valor (not to mention the intoxicating scent of amber and vanilla that follows her around) are impossible for Magnus to resist. Magnus and Pru fight their attraction to each other for as long as they can, but even an ancient Vampire and a Longfellow can't beat fate.

But fate isn't the only thing conspiring against them. Magnus' and Silas' sire, the evil Contessa Allessandra DiCasca, has set a foul plan in motion to reclaim her boys. It is only with the power he finds in Pru's love that Magnus can gain the strength to defeat his creator and protect all he holds dear.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, dubious consent, violence.

Are you in the mood for some vampire erotica with bite? If so, that’s easily remedied by picking up a copy of Longfellow Seduced. This is the kind of story that sates all of those naughty cravings, and you’ll devour those pages like a pint of your favorite ice cream.

Crude as he is, I loved Magnus Crowe, especially as you learn the truth about his violent past. He’s more of a brute than a suave Casanova, but even still, has retained a deep wealth of humanity. It’s not been an easy task, considering the cruelty of his maker. I think that’s what makes him all the more endearing and sexy. Magnus doesn’t mean any harm when he speaks out of turn. He simply is as rough and tumble as he projects. A true warrior if ever there was. Not to mention, who doesn’t love a Scot?

Prudence Longfellow, however, is the polar opposite of Magnus. She’s witty and clever, and addresses each task presented to her with the utmost professionalism. It was wonderful to watch as she emerges from her carefully constructed cocoon and meets Magnus head-on, rising to the challenge and, in the process, bringing the sexy vampire to his knees. There is no lack of deliciously hot sex. In fact, each encounter only kicks it up a notch. It’s a game of cat and mouse, only you won’t want either one to win.

The story ended with an obvious open for a sequel, and I really hope Ms. Summers continues writing about this unique and fascinating world. There is so much material, and in this short story alone, you are introduced to so many possibilities. The material is wonderfully written and fast paced, and when you come to the final page you’ll yearn for more. I would love to read more about Magnus’s blood brother Silas, and hope that perhaps I can find a book that shares his story in the future.

Vampire fans will love this one. There is just enough mystery to keep you guessing, and more than enough sexual heat to ensure you’ll wriggle in your seat. Be sure to put Longfellow Seduced on your must read list.
