These are all talented authors, and these are all great installments. The characters are solid. They feel real and very sexy. I like that their novellas. The stories are long enough to get your interest but not so long as to lose it. Highly recommended.

Just like the title, these are short novellas but well written. Lara Adrian is one of my favorite authors so I was drawn to this bundle. They are written so each novella relates to the other and are very seductive....not for teens. My only complaint is that just when you're completely drawn into the storyline, it ends. It was about 280 pgs on the nook but each nook page does not advance a page at each turn so it's more like 280 pgs of a book tranferred to the Nook format. I still gave it 5 stars because each story draws you in and you're completely engaged.... but they end too abruptly. Each book could have continued with the storyline easily.

This group of authors has once again created beautifully descriptive worlds.  With a creative balance that astounds me every time I read anything they create; I was not disappointed by this recent collaboration between authors to create the four novellas in Masters of Seduction.  They are packed full of passion and unearthly beauty, each story will keep you wanting more! Merciless: House of Gravori by Lara Adrian Devlin Gravori or known by many as Devil, is the master of his house of Gravori, Incubui.  He is a demon living among humans, with a sexual appetite that is indulged by all of his kin.  He has lived for centuries, but has never taken a mate.  In comes Nahiri, the blade of the Three.  Three who oversee and keep balance between the angels and demons who live amidst humans.  The moment Devlin sets foot in the temple, everything changes for Nahiri.  She is drawn to him immediately and not because of his demon charm.  It's more...Caught in a fight between right and wrong, will Devlin and Nahiri find the love the both so desperately seek?  Will Devlin claim Nahiri as his mate?  Will Nahiri put aside her lifetime commitment to the Three to be with the man who sets her world on fire?  Read this book! Soulless: House of Romerac by Donna Grant Canaan was the leader of his House, the House of Romerac and he had been abducted and thrown into the Oubliette over five hundred years ago.  For all the years that he had been held prisoner he blamed his brothers for betraying him.  He had given up all hope of every being free to exact his revenge until the day he was assigned the torture of a prisoner that not only knew who he was, but also knew who was really responsible for being held in Oubliette.  The Alp Demon also told him he knew a way out and would show him if Canaan agreed to take him when he escaped.   While escaping from Oubliette, the demon is killed but Canaan makes it through the portal to safety with the promise from his jailer that he would return. Raya is a Nephilim, half human, half angel had been raised to believe that it was her destiny and birthright to be with a Incubus.  After her twin sister was taken by the three to be part of a harem to have a child with an Incubus, Raya swore this would not be her destiny.  She left her family and move far away from the Powerful House of Romerac that ruled New York City determined not to suffer the same fate as her sister.   Canaan needed to restore his strength and the only way was to feed off of sexual energy.  Even though he is a sex demon he will not force anyone.  He realizes that he needs help acclimating to this new time period and Raya is just the Nephilim that can help him.  Will he get his revenge and regain his House?  Is there more than lust between him and Raya?  This is a must read book for those that want a good revenge, lust filled love story. Shameless: House of Vipera by Laura Wright Chosen as a member of the harem by the Three was not Rosamund’s plan.  She wanted a normal life with a human husband and family.  Rosamund had stumbled across a little know clause that stated if a Nephilim was not selected by an Incubus within the first year, she will be released.   Free to return to her little apartment, Roger and a normal life.  Enters Scarus the leader of the House of Vipera who needs to recharge his energy and only a Nephilim from the harem will do the job.  He had been betrayed before by a Nephilim that had stolen his son and caused the child’s death.  All he needed was to recharge, nothing else.  Rosamund had been deliberately disguising herself to look as horrible as possible so when Scarus selects her for the night she is devastated.  When he had selected her all he had seen were her beautiful eyes and he had felt the tremendous power in her blood. Instant attraction and want will it be enough?  Will the two find what both are searching for?  Must read book! Ruthless: House of Xanthe by Alexandra Ivy Jian is the head of his house and because of charges against his grandfather his house suffered great economic loss.  Jian had been forced to become an assassin to provide for his people.  The gift that Jian wields is the ability to see through illusions and he is able to break them.  He had accepted a mission to locate the sovereign to find out what the leader that sat on the Obsidian Throne was really up too. When Jian arrived at the fortress to investigate the strange happenings he is met with a place that seems deserted with only a minimal staff.  Jian also discovers an open door way between the fortress and another dimension.  He meets Muriel the keeper of the Oubliette and an angel in disguise.  She has all the answers that he needs but refuses to give them to him.  There is an imbalance between the dimensions that does not bode well for the Incubus.  Will Jian and Muriel work together?  Can they deny their attraction to each other?  An angel and an incubus together, is that possible? Read the book and find out!   Would I recommend this book: Yes! Even though this is a collections of quick reads, it is packed full of passion and suspense.  I look forward to the continuation of the Masters of Seduction coming out Winter of 2014. Would I recommend this author: Yes! This is a collection of four outstanding authors that are among my first to go to for a Great Paranormal Read!  They always create beautiful worlds that are filled with paranormal embellishments that are pure entertainment! ***Received an ARC of this book from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review***

This four part series of novellas is sizzling hot and perfect for summer. Right away I was swept off my feet and whisked into the deliciously dark and dangerously seductive world of the Incubus'. Masters of Seduction is skillfully crafted to curl your toes and get you all hot and bothered. I was surprised by how involved I got in each novella given how short each story was. Rather than feeling like I was missing something which is often the case when I read a novella, each story was a sweet ride that slowly built upon the story before. Lara Adrian starts us off with Merciless and let me tell you, I would not mind one bit being at Devlin Gravori's mercy! Each male lead has qualities that capture your heart. Devlin is vicious yet captivating, Canaan is vengeful yet compassionate, Scarus is a barbarian yet affectionate, and Jian is driven yet caring. Each man steals your heart and refuses to give it back! I'm not sure what is in store for the Incubus House Masters but war is brewing and things are sure to get much hotter. I cannot wait to see what these four talented ladies have in store for us next. An absolute must read for paranormal lovers.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle: From four masters of PNR comes a new and thrilling continuity about Incubi that I absolutely loved! Four different tales, each revolving around the Master of one of the Incubi Houses and the Nephilim, all tied together in a thrilling, action packed and super sexy compilation where in fighting abounds, treachery and subterfuge are common, betrayal runs rampant, and allies and love come in/from the most unlikely places.  The first story by Lara Adrian introduces the Master of House Gravori and Temple Blade Nephilim Nahiri. "Devil" is looking for vengeance and the truth about the murder of his brother and takes Nahiri hostage as leverage. After spending time with her, he realizes that there's more to the murder of his brother and something much larger is going on with the Council and the Throne, and finds that he is utterly slayed by the sexy and strong hybrid.  In the second book by Donna Grant, the Master of House Romerac has been betrayed and locked away in the Oubilette. While trying to discover who cursed him to his prison, he runs into a Nephilim hiding from her family and her fate as a brood mare and finds that balance and love are easier to find than he ever expected.  Incubus Master Scarus Vipera is probably one of the most feared Incubi in existence in the third book by Laura Wright, but he has a past that not many people know about. Visiting the Harem to replenish his energy and continue his quest, he uncovers more than he bargains for when he chooses the feisty Rosamund for his night of pleasure.  And last, but certainly not least, in the last story by Alexandra Ivy, the Master of House Xanthe embraces his assumed title as spy and tries to uncover the secrets abounding within the Houses, Throne and Council. While doing so, he meets the lovely angel Muriel and they work together to discover whats been going on with the rumors of the missing Masters and the underlying evil that seems to be stemming from their current Sovereign.  All put together, the continuity collection creates a beautifully intertwined story of intrigue, romance, and action played out with steamy sex scenes and an intricately woven plot that twists and turns and utterly captivates. I love the way the authors took each of their individual voices and shared aspects of the world to bind the tales together and I can't wait for the next installment! I most definitely recommend Masters of Seduction to fans of any/all of these authors and PNR fans far and wide.  My only complaint was the quickness with which each of the couples fell in love, but alas, that is always my complaint with PNR novellas since there is only so many pages to work with and we need the HEA. At least with these, you get the insta-lust and love, but you also get an HEA with a twist, making the reader want more and leaving us wondering what will happen next, thus making the next volume that much more lusted after. :)

Awesome, awesome, AWESOME! You can tell the stories are crafted by different authors due to verbiage, but they all work well together and describe a common world. I can't actually pick a favorite from these 4 hero/heroine groupings. You can imagine yourself as a fly on the wall in many scenes as these stories as they portray each of these uber-alpha males and their personal weaknesses. A quick, but terrific read! Cannot wait for the next 4 stories, but who gets to write the tie-breaker ninth?!
