[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Seducing the Vampire

Michele Hauf has been writing romance, action-adventure and fantasy stories for over fifteen years. Her first published novel was DARK RAPTURE.

France, musketeers, vampires and faeries populate her stories. And if she followed the adage ‘write what you know’, all her stories would have snow in them. Fortunately, she steps beyond her comfort zone and writes about countries she has never visited and of creatures she has never seen.

Michele is the author of the THIS WITCHERY, BEWITCH THE DARK,WICKED GAMES,CHANGELINGS and OF ANGELS & DEMONS series, though she also has some amazing titles and series in the Fantasy, Historical, and Action/Adventure genres as well (THE NETWORK and THE SAINT-SYLVESTERS just to name a couple). You can find out about her entire backlist HERE.

You can keep up with Michele all over the Net. Check out her Website, Facebook Page, Pinterest page , Twitter profile, YouTube channel and/or hang out with her and her awesome characters over in Club Scarlet.

Seducing the Vampire
by Michele Hauf

Buy from Amazon | B&N | Harlequin

In Marie Antoinette's Paris, the beautiful vampire Viviane seeks a male patron who will allow her to live on her own terms. Courted by two feuding brothers, Viviane succumbs to the handsome rebel, Rhys. She's unaware that Rhys has other, darker, motives. He seeks vengeance against his brother, Constantine—by stealing Viviane and tainting her with his blood.But just as Rhys is realizing the depth of his love for Viviane, his brother takes his revenge. By casting a spell on the woman they both desire, he condemns her to a living death inside a glass coffin.

Two centuries later, Rhys hears the legend of the Snow White vampiress, imprisoned deep in the tunnels under Paris. He must find her and set her free, but will he be able to save her from the evil still intent on destroying them?

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.
