Dr. Bethany Stavinoski's groundbreaking work in biochemistry has brought her much attention, but not all of it is welcome, especially that of the vampires. When she becomes a target of the undead who want her to replicate the serum that transformed them into either monsters or superhumans, depending on your point of view, it becomes the mission in Dirk Adams' life to protect the lovely scientist. Dirk himself is a changeling, a half vampire. Since being transformed, he and his best friends have tried to stop the evil vampires, and perhaps regain their full humanity. However, Bethany's appeal is greater than her mind for Dirk. The attraction between them is off limits, she's engaged to another man, and Dirk is after all, a changeling, but it's too late. They've both been seduced by the night. ................. *** Ms. Popp's version of vampirism is intriguingly different, using science, not magic, to explain it. Combined with more traditional romantic elements, this reinvention makes a story that will fly by quickly, holding your interest the entire way. ***

Seduced by the Night is the second book in Robin T. Popp's Night Slayer series. Bethany Stavinoski is a biochemist and has recently been awarded for her brilliance in her leading research. Unfortunately for Bethany, it has made her the target of a group of men looking to create a new drug. These men are strange and mysterious but Bethany is lucky to have a protector in Dirk Adams a former military man who has a few secrets up his sleeves. Bethany is engaged to another man, but that doesn't extinguish the flames that burn between Bethany and Dirk. I really enjoyed the first book in the series Out of the Night, which I rated an A. But unfortunately I didn't enjoy Seduced by the Night quite as much. One of the things I really enjoyed about OOTN is the unusual twist to the vampire legend. I thought it was rather clever and different from most vampire books, but by the second book that novelty had worn off and nothing new in terms of the legend had come to light, although there were new characters and motivations that surfaced in this book. The other thing that bothered me with this book was that Bethany was engaged to another man and while she didn't feel passionate toward him she still was committed to him and it took away from her relationship development with Dirk. Dirk was kind of a Neanderthal with Bethany at times and of course hated the fact she belonged to another. I just couldn't really get into this one. Robin T. Popp's writing style reminds me of Elizabeth Jennings or Lisa Marie Rice, where the heroines are very feminine and the males are extremely protective, which is not a bad combination, it just didn't work for me in Seduced by the Night.

I am getting a little weary of vampire tales of late, but there seems to be no stopping the genre. One of the best to emerge from this over-crowded category is Robin T. Popp. Popp pulls a cross-genre twist on this, making her Night Slayer series unique. Her first novel Too Close to the Sun (June 2003), a highly innovative Sci-Fi Romance for Dorchester, made me an instant fan. However, in the switch in publishers and genre, I had to wait for the edge of the seat, brilliant Out of the Night (September 2005), the first book in her Night Slayer series. I am delighted there wasn¿t the long wait for the second one. Seduced by the Night, shows Popp is a talent to stay. Bethany Stavinoski is a top biochemist. It causes her to be sucked into the dangerous world of rogue vampires and half-vampire changelings. The Bad Vamps want her to replicate a formula so they can dominate the world, only there is a Night Slayer bent on stopping them. Dirk Adams is a changeling, a Night Slayer, a human with all the powers of a vampire, but not all the bad side effects. He is a slayer who a hunts down the rogue vamps. Currently, he is assigned to protect Bethany. As he tries to shield her, Bethany find Dirk drawing her closer. As they are relentlessly pursued, she faces giving herself to Dirk¿s dark power in order to save their lives. The pace is breathless, Dirk and Bethany¿s desire for each other sensual. Popp weaves threads of her former Sci-Fi genre into this vamp series to give a stronger base in reality. It sets the Night Slayers apart from all the other vampires books, showing Popp is a talent to watch. Highly recommended.

SEDUCED BY THE NIGHT, Robin Popp¿s newest ¿Night Slayer Book¿ will seduce you with his sexy hero and determined heroine. Dr. Bethany Stavinoski, an award-winning biochemist, is working on a synthetic drug at her fiancée¿s laboratory. Unknown to her, it¿s not a plant extract by a venom extract from a chupacabra, a creature whose bite turns humans into vampires. Arriving at work one night, she finds the lab destroyed, her assistant gone and a guard dead with two puncture wounds in his neck. Enter Dirk Adams, an ex-SEAL and recent changeling, a human who was bitten by the chupacabra, but not killed. He has all the vampire¿s strength and skills, but not their short life, their hunger for blood, or the certainty of death when touched by the sunlight. And his mission in life is to hunt and kill real vampires. From the moment they meet, Dirk and Bethany feel the sparks, but with his new status and her engagement, they can¿t act upon their desires. When a vampire attempt on her life kills Bethany¿s body guard, Dirk and his boss insist she move out to their mansion where they can keep her safe. Yet, as she goes about working on the synthetic drug, vampires come out of the woodworks trying to kidnap her, keeping Dirk working overtime protecting her. Unfortunately, he can¿t dispatch his growing feelings for Bethany as easily as he can drive a stake into a vampire¿s heart and when she breaks off her engagement, because she realizes she doesn¿t love her fiancée, they are able to act upon their desires. The vampires are determined to kidnap Bethany and set her up in their own lab....but, hey, I can¿t give the whole story away! This is a sexy, highly adventurous, action-packed book. Through the twist and turns, the fights and frights, Bethany and Dirk discover what is truly important...each other. Don¿t miss out on Ms. Popp¿s latest novel, SEDUCED BY THE NIGHT, a summer must read!

Renowned for her biochemical research, Dr. Bethany Stavinoski becomes concerned with enemy agents who want to control the direction of her efforts. Rogue malevolent vampires demand Bethany work on replicating what turned them into creatures of the undead. Half vampire changeling Dirk Adams vows to keep the scientist safe as she is his only hope to regain his full humanity.--------- Dirk and his friends battle against evil vampires who also want Bethany because they think her early out of the box work might provide them with an elixir to convert more followers. Besides the fact that she gives him faith in his future, Dirk finds she also provides him with a desire for her as a woman. As they fall in love, though she is engaged, his being a changeling makes their relationship taboo.-------------- SEDUCED BY THE NIGHT is a fast-paced vampire romantic suspense tale that grips the audience once Bethany becomes the focus of the evil vampires. Readers will appreciate the scientific theory as to why species vampire formed giving the tale a bit more of an authentic side than the usual supernatural spin. The forbidden romance adds to the fun of a delightful (can¿t say supernatural) tale.------------ Harriet Klausner
