Overview

When Chloe Karras sings, she knows that no one can resist her sensual allure—except for the sexy naval officer seemingly immune to her voice. But Captain Alex Shore is just the man she wants to take home after her performance—until he tells her what she thought were imagined powers are real...and dangerous.

Alexandros knows firsthand how seductive sirens are, as well as their potential to destroy. Yet the former sea soldier feels a powerful attraction to the beautiful rock singer that goes beyond her spell. Can he banish Chloe from the town he's vowed to protect—or will he be drawn into the siren's bed?

Stephanie Draven brings her characters life on the pages. This is a great read.

I usually don't read novellas. They normally don't go as deep as full-length novels can take them. And I love deep, complicated, and intriguing characters. Having said that, I was pleasantly surprised how much depth Chloe had. In such a short time I was drawn in to her life. I was cheering for her sooner than I'd expected! I enjoyed the creative twists on mythology. It kept me hooked on the story and I read it in one sitting. Alexandros was an interesting hero. Tormented. Just how I like them. *evil grin* Yet, in his tormentedness (yes, I use that word *LOL*) he's gentle and caring. So, if you are looking for a quick, fun read you could give this one a try. Just be warned...it's a bit steamy.

Siren Song is a novella about a rock star named Chloe. She knows that she seems to have some sort of power - when she sings, men are willing to do anything for her. She just doesn't know that she's a siren until a man named Alexandros comes along. He is the only man that doesn't fall under her spell. He gets the wrong impression of Chloe, and tries to get her to leave town. I really wasn't a fan of either of these characters at first. Chloe just seemed a little stuck on herself. She would prance around on stage acting sexy and knew men couldn't resist her. Alexandros was a controlling jerk at first, acting like he had a right to make Chloe leave town. They both had a lot of back story though that sort of explained their behaviors. The more time they spent together, the more they softened toward each other. I really came to like these characters, but I personally didn't feel that much of a connection. I can't really explain why - maybe because the story was short so it sort of felt rushed. I liked the plot of the story though, it was different from others I have read. I also liked how the story kept moving - there were no slow parts, or parts with a lot of unnecessary information. The story involved a murder mystery, and there was an interesting twist toward the end. I recommend this to adult paranormal fans that are looking for a quick read.

Saucy rocker puts the moves on an unsuspecting man on a mission. Chloe Karrashas has the charms that knock most men off their feet but for straight-laced Alexandros "Alex" Shore, he's infallible. Self-appointed defender of the cause, Alex is out to save the world. Can the teachings from another time help him find the one thing that could destroy him or could the trust he holds be the saving grace for what he's longing for? A tale wrapped in a land of magical places, splendid wonder and calming blue waters, home to rulers of the deep, and kingdoms of ancient times. From the depth of the seas a soldier appears as the deciding factor in another's life. That's his story. Alex is a man looking for a way out of the torment he endures while becoming captivated by a melody so sweet that it melts him into submission. We have two people -- Chloe and Alex -- always at odds with one another. Chloe, who's looking for a good time and Alex, who will do anything to stop her self-destructive ways. Just another love / hate relationship? No, this goes beyond the everyday dilemma of boy meets girl. The characters here tell a story about commitment to duty and lessons learned when taking a chance on the unknown. On land and sea, author Stephanie Draven gives you a glimpse of forgotten times when worshipping the gods was a privilege. This is a fanciful tale of magic with a mix of whimsy thrown in. There are some dark moments that bring you back to reality, giving the plot some credence. An impossible story? Yes, of course -- it's a paranormal, but once you let your mind wander a bit, you'll find yourself smiling at it all. If you're wanting something with a bit of mysticism, then this one's for you. A true page turner that kept my interest until the end. I enjoyed the wonder of the plot and I think you will too. Go out and get this one.
