An erotic paranormal romance…
Sexy vampire, Luca Macquarie doesn’t do love; especially not with humans. Yet, ever since he rescued Samantha Irving, he can’t deny the enigmatic attraction he’s developed for the alluring mortal woman. Concerned for her safety, he’s determined to bring Samantha back to her coven. His mission is to go find the novice witch and bring her home, nothing more, nothing less; falling for her is not supposed to be part of the plan.
Samantha doesn’t want to be a witch, yet that’s exactly what she is. After failing to elicit her magic, she escapes to the mountains in an attempt to resume a semblance of her previous human life. When an arsonist torches her cabin, Samantha’s worst fears are realized. Aware that her life is on the line, she reluctantly agrees to return to New Orleans with Luca.
In the Big Easy, Samantha and Luca embark on a spellbinding journey, searching for a mystical amulet that promises to release her obligation from an ancient, lethal vampire who’s been threatening her life. With cryptic clues and clandestine allies, will Luca and Samantha destroy the dangerous amulet before others acquire it, setting forth a chain of catastrophic consequences? And will Luca give into his erotic desire for the witch who magically captures heart?
Luca’s Magic Embrace is the second book in Kym Grosso’s Immortals of New Orleans Seris. Luca’s Magic Embrace starts at the cliff of death for Luca. A vampire cuffed in silver alone, in a desolate church. Upon inspecting his surrounding he realizes not only had he been kidnapped but had been purloined of his own blood.
Kym Grosso does a wonderful description of Luca’s ties to his maker Kade and weaves such a harsh start into a steamy healing. Upon healing Luca we learn Luca was kidnapped while protecting coven members. One a little more than the others – Samantha.
While being bespelled by evil magic Samantha had been infused with magic. Going from mortal to witch and desperately trying to understand how she arrived at this point she is pulled into the fray and not by choice.
Kym keeps her characters level headed in such turmoil. I am not sure about the swift change of Samantha’s power and acceptance. There is just something missing with her. Over all the entire book was a great read and I expecting more Immortals of New Orleans!
I rate Luca’s Magic Embrace 3 out of 5 Bullets
