    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olso

    Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

    Seducing the Vampire was the first Michele Hauf book I ever read, and sparked an obsession that I revel in to this day.

    A uniquely compelling twist on the Sleeping Beauty mythos, vampire Viviane LaMourette is being wooed by brothers Rhys and
    Constantine Hawkes until Rhys tries to gain the upper hand by tainting Viviane with his blood and thereby spoiling her for Constantine.
    What he didn't count on, however, was falling in love her her himself... 

    Once Viviane and Rhys accept that they're fated and commit to one another, things become even more complicated when Constantine
    pulls the 'if I can't have her...' card and curses Viviane to an eternity in a glass coffin, aware, but paralyzed.

    A compelling mix of past and present, Seducing the Vampire is a dark fairytale that I never tire of (I've read it at least 3 times already). I
    would highly recommend it for paranormal romance and vampire fiction fans who enjoy their romance with a dark edge.

    This is not a tale about Snow white

    Hallelujah an author who can spin a great tale. I loved it. The pacing of the story is well done. The author tells the story by smoothly switching back and forth between the past 200 years(powered faces and white wigs) and modern times (cell phone and laptops). The plot was unique; a new world was created for the reader's escape. The characters were refreshingly atypical. There are vampires, werewolves, witches, faeries, and shifters. Bigotry and jealousy fuel cruelty beyond one's wildest dreams. This is a story of true love that stands the test of time and fears. There's a little sex; but, it too is tastefully done.

    Viviane a bloodborn is pursued by two brothers: Constantine and Rhys who have feuded throughout the centuries. This is sibling rivalry to the extreme. Constantine is a bloodborn while Rhys is half vampire and half werewolf. The brothers' personalities are like polar opposites. Viviane needs her independence like she needs blood. The rejection of one brother fuels a cruel vengeance that tests the love for the chosen one. I highly recommend this book and I look forward to the next installment, Forever Vampire. Vaillant was probably sired by Constantine. I am definitely going to seek more books written by this author.

    A very dark entertaining thriller

    In 1785 in Paris, Constantine de Salignac the vampire is attracted to the bloodborn vampiress Viviane LaMourette. However, she rejects him as she does other males who desire her; as she refuses to be under the domination of anyone while her patron Henri Chevalier keeps her safe. Obsessed with her Constantine is irate with her refusal.

    When her patron is murdered, Constantine decides that offering her his patron protection will enable him to possess Viviane. However, hybrid vampire-werewolf Rhys Hawke blames Constantine for the death of his beloved. He plans to take out his revenge by seducing Constantine's beloved. Instead his scheme fails when he falls in love with the pawn he was going to discard; Viviane reciprocates his affection. Raging Constantine enchants Viviane while informing Rhys his beloved died. Over two centuries later, Rhys hears rumors of a Snow White vampires buried underneath the Paris streets; he wonders if this is true and could this be his Viviane.

    Seducing the Vampire is a very dark entertaining thriller as Viviane is trapped in a triangle of death. The three key characters are fully developed with the sibling rivalry so ugly each brother has their soul filled with loathing. Viviane is terrific as the trapped Snow White caught in the fratricidal war as only one can survive.

    Loved It!!!

    I loved this book. A spin on the Sleeping Beauty fairytale, but definitely for adults. Michele Hauf is now on my "must buy" list.
