Publisher's Summary

American exchange student Kate Bordessa has fled to Russia to escape her family's hopes that she'll become one of the Proffered, human women who feed and mate with elite vampire warriors. But when she stumbles upon a wounded vampire in the streets of Moscow, she's instinctively driven to protect him - and feels an undeniable spark of desire.

Grieving over the deaths of his brothers, Vampire Warrior King Nikolai Vasilyev has thrown himself into battling his enemies, focused only on vengeance. Until the attack that brought him to Kate. Their sexual attraction explodes into a night of uncontrolled passion - a night that marks them as mates.

    "Short ..... but oh so sweet"

    Give me a vampire romance story and I'm happy - and this one is no exception. He is mentally tortured by the death of his brothers and she is drawn to an area of Moscow but she doesn't know why or what's waiting for her there.

    It is what it is - a short story but it packs a lot into the 3hrs and I'm not at all disappointed - it was yummy.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Laura Kaye again?

    No


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Raquel Harris?

    Yes


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I couldn't finish the book. Made it about 2/3 through and just couldn't stand all the painfully manufactured angst.

    "Good but still wish it was longer"

    I don't usually like shorts but this was good. I thought I'd take a chance since it was so cheap on sale. If they come up with any more of this authors I'll spend the credit. I like the way she writes.

    The narrator was good. I think this is the first time I've heard her but she did a good job.

    Story
    "I wish it would have been longer!"

    Very good story, I wish it would have been longer so we could get more details on the bad guys and the warriors and their battles. Along the lines of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. The romance was a bit over the top at times, but when you get in that mindset you enjoy it quite a bit. Strong leading lady. It was definitely worth the purchase. It was like a Paranormal Romance appetizer.

    "Pretty okay"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, it was only three hours. A good short read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seduced by the Vampire King?

    Loved the beginning of the book.


    What three words best describe Raquel Harris’s performance?

    She should do Russian accents. Other than that she was great.


    Do you think Seduced by the Vampire King needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Sure. I wouldn't mind learning more about the vampire world.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Good PNR short story :)"

    3-3.5 stars

    This was a good short story. Kate seemed nice and Nikolai was a bit of a jerk at first but he came around.

    Kate is the daughter of 2 humans that work on a counsel with good vampires that fight against rogue vampires. Kate had been training to be part of that society and even possibly become a vampire's mate but disliked the idea of that kind of connection to a vampire she didn't know or like. She decided to go to Russia for her studies to avoid the vampire issue for now.

    Nikolai is the Vampire King in the Russian area. He recently lost his brothers to a battle against rogues and now doesn't feel fit to be King. He certainly doesn't believe he deserves anything good in life...

    Nikolai is out hunting rogue vampires one night and decides to do so without backup from his vampires. He gets in over his head and is injured, barely getting away in time. He collapses in an alleyway and is no where near help and has no way to call for help. Kate, being unable to sleep and feeling restless, happens to twist her ankle right outside the alley where Nikolai is and finds him there. When she realizes he's a vampire (and she confirms he's not a rogue) she knows she must hide him from other humans. While she's doing this she notices a connection between them and she feels fiercely protective over him. Things go a bit wonky but Nikolai is rescued and Kate gets taken along while things are sorted out. When Nikolai wakes from his injuries he finds he wants Kate but he wont allow himself to have her and hurts her in the progress. Things do get worked out between them when Nikolai stops fighting the mating urge and he and Kate end the story starting their HEA together.

    This was an enjoyable story. I didn't read book #1 in the series but there was nothing that indicated to me that I was missing part of the story because of that. Nikolai and Kate were both likable characters and I liked their story but I do wish there had been a little more of it to flesh out the ending a bit. :)

    Story
    "Too crude"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It was too short. Storyline was ok but I felt like there was a lot that I did not know about the vampire/human culture and traditions. It was difficult to emmerse myself and to relate to any of the characters. I sappose that is the number one reason I do not recommend it or will I listen to it again. The love scenes were poorly written and the terms used were degrading and inappropriate for romance.
