Veil of Seduction is the second book in the Ambrose Heights series and what a follow up it was! Veil of Seductions follows the leader of the Ambrose Heights Vampires, Steffan Matthews, who captured my attention in the first book, Flesh Fantasy, so I was very excited to read this story. All the favorite characters from Flesh Fantasy are back and as funny as ever. Veil of Seduction was much more emotionally charged than Flesh Fantasy but the heat was still there. There were many twists and turns that kept the story anything but predictable and kept me turning the pages to see what was going to happen. You know you’re reading a good author when your emotions take a roller coaster ride and you feel the butterflies in your stomach, the anger, and the heartbreak alongside the characters. In typical DeLeina fashion, the descriptive nature of her writing gives the reader the perfect vision of the world she has built. It’s so easy to picture her characters and where they live. The Ambrose Heights series has quickly made it to my list of favorites. I can’t wait to see who’s book is next and what DeLeina has planned for her Ambrose Heights vampires.
A newborn vampire. A powerful leader. An inconsolable woman. The shaping of their eternity all lies within the eyes. Steffan Matthews is the devastatingly handsome vampire leader of Ambrose Heights. He cultivates social order and invents concoctions that allow vampires to feel human once again. But Steffan also has a devouring obsession that brings him to his knees. Her name is Anya. Steffan sets out to claim Anya, a mortal ripe for the taking, as his mate. But the blackness in the eyes of his newborn should’ve served as a warning. Anya is off-limits according to the vampire creed. It will take the strength of the kinship, the purity of love, a hint of magic, and a subterranean guardian to shield Steffan against the wrath of Ryan Evans, protect him from the fate of the Nemesis, and bridge a passage to his rightful destiny.
