Genre: Paranormal Romance
Life isn’t so bad for succubus, Kenna Blake. True, she seems to be the only succubus with a conscience and a specific strategy for finding her male meals, but she has a cute new apartment, a budding graphic design business, and the most unique friends she’s ever had.
Her personal love life, however, is non-existent.
Until the legendary vampire Randal Vincent sweeps into her life. Even though he isn’t someone she set out to date, at least she can kiss him without killing him. But when you’re dating someone who’s the inspiration for Dracula, there are bound to be a few hiccups along the way…
In paranormal fiction, Succubi are generally represented as the bad guys with an insatiable thirst for human life force and eager to use their sexuality to feed. Kenna Blake is different. A year has passed since the end of Kiss of Awakening, when she discovered she was a Succubus. She knows she can use her powers to attract men so she can feed the necessary three times a week, but the idea disgusts her.
Kenna may be a demon, but Jennifer Snyder’s characterisation is so vivid, that she is a young woman we can imagine being friends with. In truth, she knows her feeding limits and would never knowingly harm anyone. The fact that she can identify auras also helps us to realise that in Newvale, supernaturals are common and there are restaurants and nightclubs which cater to each species’ specific needs.
In Seduce, Kenna’s best friend Bree, has moved away and Kenna has befriended Sage, a workmate and vampire. Sage is confident but temperamental and I wasn’t sure I entirely trusted her.
On the other hand, Dex, a werewolf who Kenna has a failed blind date with, is a sexy and fun character. He has a cute cockiness but is protective of Sage and his new friend Kenna. I hope to see more of him in future instalments of the series.
At the heart of Seduce is the romance between the powerful vampire, Randal Vincent and our main character, Kenna. The scene in which they meet is hilarious and totally something I have done before!
Kenna’s naivety about Randal and the influence he has, is another reflection of her integrity. Despite his age, this relationship appears to be based on a real curiosity, rather than lust, which is an appealing change from other stories in the genre.
I really enjoyed how Jennifer Snyder chooses to unfold the events in Seduce and by placing Kenna in such a precarious position, she has ensured that many of her reader will reach for the sequel as soon as it is released! I for one cannot wait to meet the mysterious Jason Bloom!
Seduce is a must-read for fans of the paranormal romance genre!
