An erotic paranormal romance...
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?

It is right up. There I have been very pleased with the books I have listened to. Although Kym Grosso was a new author to me the story line and type of character was not. Great group of characters in this series and I love revisiting characters from other books in the series.
People who read Mandy Roth Immortal Ops series will feel a certain similarity. Ms Roths characters are more outrageous and the camaraderie is hilarious. Still the PRN and groups of protectors is in a similar vein.
Luca. I fell for him in book one.
Yes, unfortunately it was too long but I did listen in two days. I love the alarm so it auto turns off in a period of time. That way it doesn't just keep going if I fall asleep.
I bought the boxed set, then after listening to the first book, ended up buying them individually to get the audio and sync option--I liked it that much.
Books and dogs make the perfect companions!
Book two in the Immortals of New Orleans is simply magical. It is full of suspense, action, and steamy sex!
With a fast placed plot, Samantha is on the run, and must find a mystical amulet to be free of a vampire who is manipulating, and scaring her into finding amulet for himself. In need of protection, sexy vampire, Luca retrieves Samantha from her hiding, and brings her back to New Orleans so they can search for the amulet together. On a race against time, they must find the amulet before another witch locates it, and uses against the vampires.
Things start getting really steamy between Samantha, and Luca as he teaches her about domination, and what it means to submit to your darkest desires. For steamy domination play, these sex scenes were tastefully done, and had me blushing.
Truly Magical story!!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
This is an action packed paranormal love story, whether the action is with Vampires, Werewolves, Witches and Mortals or the hot n very heavy kind.... it's relentless with passion, mystery and magic. This follows on from book 1 and, as newly turned witch Samantha tries to come to terms with her new abilities and what had happened to her, the gorgeous Australia Vampire Luca is there ready to help her and he's already just escaped a near deadly enslavement of his own so he knows how she feels.
However, just when things seemed to be hotting up between the unlikely pair they were brought crashing down to Earth by a fire, a mysterious supernatural and a threat to find a very powerful but missing Amulet. And then the clues, intrigue, suspense, twists, action and revelations keep coming and so too does Luca and Samantha in their many, and sexy, love scenes. A mixed bag of sexy supernatural secondary characters, some are loveable, some are dark and dangerous and some are mysterious and I'm sure there's a book just waiting to be written with their names on it. We get to hear how Kade and Sydney are doing too.
Told from various POV's but mainly from Samantha and Luca's and Ryan West's ability to change accents, nationalities and emotions with his narration, together with Kym Grosso's worldbuilding, is what made this a very worthy 4 star listen.
Worth a credit? An enjoyable and entertaining paranormal love story that had it all.... so YES creditworthy and the Epilogue has me eagerly waiting for Werewolf Tristan's transformation from a rich and carefree playboy to a mated pampered pooch.
Well this is my second book in the series. I was not a huge fan of the first book, but wanted to give the second one a try to see if I would like it any better. Well not so much. It wasn't any worse. I don't like the forced romance. This was like that as well as in the first book.
There is quite a bit of sex in the story so it is not rated G by no means at all.
The story line and plot were decent. I like the characters well enough but sometimes the main characters said some really cheesy things. Which annoys me.
As for the narrator. Meh. He is okay, but I think he reads with too much angst in his voice. The women sound like women which is good. Everyone gets their own distinct voice. Its just the way he reads the story so angsty.
I have tried these first two books and was so glad when they ended so I have no desire to move forward with this series.
I love Books!!!!
I liked this book. It was just as good as the first book maybe better. The couple was great and very passionate together. So sweet.
"For the Love of Books"
Definitely better than the book version because the Ryan West's narration brings the book to life. The intense voice awakens the storyline three times over!!
When you have a nice deep voice such as Ryan's it makes the experience of all the male leads simply real!!
Kym Grosso has written a wonderful series…..The Immortals of New Orleans. This series includes a wonderful group of supernaturals. I read the book back in 2014, Luca's Magic Embrace, but listening to it on audio now, narrated by the fabulous Ryan West allowed me to pick up things I never realized I missed in the book!!! I loved the chemistry between Luca and Samantha. Theirs was a great love story. The steaminess factor between the two of them keeps rising throughout the audio. I also loved the adventure aspect, as it kept me enthralled. I highly recommend this and the entire Immortal series to those readers who love Paranormal romances with a twist!!!
This second book in the series was interesting and handsome good plot twists. I love the character the narrator put into each person in the story! On to book 3.
