Summary

He spotted her in Club Nightshade, a beautiful goddess among the mortals, and from that moment on she was his everything. She tempted him. She intrigued him. He wanted her. Sabrina Donahue knew she was playing with fire from the moment their lips met, but something about Roman Arceneaux made it difficult for her to care. Sensual and darkly intense, Roman is every woman's fantasy come to life. One by one, Sabrina's reservations fall prey to his skilled seduction, leaving her dreaming of a future she never imagined. When monsters and mayhem intrude upon their lives, Sabrina's fragile existence is threatened and Roman is left to wonder if their love will survive.

Very enjoyable

I really enjoyed this book. Two strong characters from two different worlds coming together. Well written book with story captivating the whole way through. Good start to a serie. The narrating by Sonja Field was very good.

Awesome Story ~ Never A Dull Moment!

After listening and falling in love with book two, I had to go back and listen to book one, and it was just as awesome and exceeded all my expectation! I LOVE how Brenda Tetreault develops multiple plots and POV's, making this a very entertaining, fun and sexy story with excellent world-building and character development. You really get to know the characters and I look forward to listening to their stories.

Sonja Field's has a great voice and delivers a flawless performance! She does an excellent job bringing the words to life!

An awesome series for any die hard PNR fan, and an amazing Kindle Unlimited Whispersync deal!

WOW!!! So glad I tried a new genre for me.

This is the first Paranormal book that I have listened to and have been amazed! I loved the various characters and separate stories woven into one overall story. Typically my genres to listen to are Romance and Mystery. Until this book, I have stayed away from "Paranormal". I will definitely look for by the author Brenda Tetreault and narrator Sonja Field. The author is extremely talented and the narrator did a fantastic performance with the various characters and accents. I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I do not like to give away spoilers in a review, but I cannot wait to listen to the next book in the series. This book is a standalone and not a cliffhanger. Before this book, I hadn't listened to any books dealing with Vampires or Faeries. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series to hear what happens to the various characters.

OMG!! This is such a great book!

Would you consider the audio edition of Tempted: A Nightshade Novel to be better than the print version?

Yes, Sonja Field is Phenom and brought new life to the book! She is just as wonderful as Tavia Gilbert...maybe even better!!

What other book might you compare Tempted: A Nightshade Novel to and why?

The Sookie Stackhouse series (True Blood) - It has all sorts of different types of characters, Vampire, Fairies and more! I think Brenda does better than Charlaine Harris at keeping them and their stories straight though.

Which character – as performed by Sonja Field – was your favorite?

Roman...I want to lick him! LOL

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES!! I almost did too!!

Any additional comments?

I am soooo looking forward to the next book in this series!

WOW.... WHAT AN INSANELY AWESOME START

Well, Brenda Tetreault has blown me away with this Paranormal romance and, the way she has written it, really brings you into the story where you'll mix with Damphir's (half Vampire/half Human), Fairies, mystic Fawns, Sprites and a host of other supernaturals. The sexy and handsome owner of Club Nightshade has lived for hundreds of years, seen and done it all (twice), dated models etc etc... but when he sees the beautiful and mysterious Sabrina in his Club he's blown away by instant attraction and lust.... but the feisty Sabrina slips through his fingers. However, when they do meet again, the chemistry is thick between them and stirs up feelings of passion that neither one can ignore.

Sabrina has lived a privileged life, her parents are wealthy but cold, they're uninterested and uncaring of what she wants and their only concern is how her actions will reflect on them.... and on the society they mix in. Sabrina hates this, doesn't feel she fits in and rebels every chance she can by doing socially unacceptable things in defiance of them. But when she meets the mysterious Roman her life changes, first because she's charmed by this sexy charismatic man.... and then because she is suddenly plunged into danger. There's someone, or something, scary out to hurt her and slowly she is introduced to a very different world.... a world made up of weird and wonderful creatures.... Fairies, Vampires and miscellaneous bloodthursty Monsters. Roman becomes her protector as well as her lover as paranormal mayhem disrupts, interferes and completely changes, her whole life.

A really enjoyable paranormal love story that's full of action as well as suspense, surprises, sex, shrieks and a plot twist or two. There are sub-plots with other character's love lives that will, I'm sure, continue and flourish into them having books of their own. Dual POV's (occasionally other characters too) and the narrator did a good job with the voices, accents and moods of the book.

Worth a credit? It's got great characters (and not just the main H/H), it's a great start to a new imaginative paranormal series, there's a very entertaining and exciting plot that's action-packed, descriptive as well as addictive..... and there's a drool-worthy, dark, intense and sinfully sensual Hero..... who bites!! So, YEAH, this is just my kinda listen and, IMO, definitely creditworthy.

Great listen!

I first found this series when I listened to the Christmas novella. I loved the characters and HAD to go start from the beginning. I'm so glad I did!

Brenda Tetreault is an amazing writer. I have read many paranormal romance works over the years and sometimes don't feel that the characters are relatable. In some books, they are too different from reality, but that is not the case here! All the characters are well rounded with enough backstory to connect the reader/listener to them, but not so much that I felt bogged down by extraneous details.

The narrator did a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life. All of her characters' voices were distinct and made it easy to tell who was who.

This is a great audio book.

Enjoyable Entertainment

I came to this audiobook after listening to the fourth book in the series, “Fated”, and I am glad I did. This book provides the foundation on which the Nightshade realm is built and begins the story of the main characters Roman and Sabrina. The story took enough twists and turns that it kept me wondering what would happen next without being too confusing. On a couple of occasions the repetitiveness of a few words came off as abrasive but it wasn’t terrible. I felt the narration was well done; with clearly defined voices for each character. And was read in a style that kept me in the Nightshade realm till the end. All of which made for an enjoyable source of entertainment during my daily commute.
