Review: Luca’s Magic Embrace
Luca's Magic Embrace by Kym Grosso
Sexy vampire, Luca Macquarie doesn't do love; especially not with humans. Yet, ever since he rescued Samantha Irving, he can't deny the enigmatic attraction he's developed for the alluring mortal woman. Concerned for her safety, he's determined to bring Samantha back to her coven. His mission is to go find the novice witch and bring her home, nothing more, nothing less; falling for her is not supposed to be part of the plan.
Samantha doesn't want to be a witch, yet that's exactly what she is. After failing to elicit her magic, she escapes to the mountains in an attempt to resume a semblance of her previous human life. When an arsonist torches her cabin, Samantha's worst fears are realized. Aware that her life is on the line, she reluctantly agrees to return to New Orleans with Luca.
In the Big Easy, Samantha and Luca embark on a spellbinding journey, searching for a mystical amulet that promises to release her obligation from an ancient, lethal vampire who's been threatening her life. With cryptic clues and clandestine allies, will Luca and Samantha destroy the dangerous amulet before others acquire it, setting forth a chain of catastrophic consequences? And will Luca give into his erotic desire for the witch who magically captures heart?
You know there is just something about a love story between a beautiful, smart, strong woman surviving tragedy and the sexy, intimidating, Alpha male drawn to protect her that really makes for an incredible book. Then when you add a nasty evil doer and heart stopping mystery along with Kym Grosso's incredible writing style, you have a WINNER! Luca's Magic Embrace, the second book in The Immortals of New Orleans series, is a perfect continuation to this sexy, action-packed story and one you really should not miss. Ms Grosso has written these books so that they can stand alone but reading them as a series just makes the ride all the better!
Samantha is trying to get her life back together after being kidnapped, abused and having magic literally shoved into her. With no memory of what happened to her and now a witch with no discernable magic, she is being chased by some unknown evil. Ever since saving Samantha from the warlock that tortured her, Luca has felt an unmistakable attraction to her, however he DOES NOT do relationships. Especially with a human! And NEVER after losing the love of his life all those years ago before he was turned. Now do not misunderstand, Luca is not a monk! He just refuses to become attached. Now this 200 year old surly Alpha vampire is faced with admitting he wants more from this beautiful little witch but first he must keep her safe from whatever is hunting her and also keep himself from being captured and strapped in silver to an altar again!
Ms Grosso's style is very easy to read and even easier to become addicted to. All of her characters have incredible depth and the story line draws you in and makes it impossible to stop reading until you get to the last page, then you are left waiting for the next book to see what will happen next! She creates a world that you know is fantasy but cannot stop from wanting to be real! There is not one character or one detail no matter how small that she has not used to enhance the story and give you an incredible reading experience. Her talent is not limited in any way! You will be guessing all the way through who the couple can trust and who is after them. Just when you think you have it figured out, she throws you another curve ball and draws you in deeper!
This is a book any paranormal, supernatural, vampire lover should not miss! I suggest reading both books in the series and get ready for the third coming April 1st! These books are AMAZING!!!!
