Bloodlust runs in his veins, a dark master waiting for the day it will reign over him. Now a woman with a pure soul and wicked intentions has him in her sights and is determined to crack the ice around his heart, and she might save or damn him.
Antoine stands apart from the world around him, a dangerous and broken soul who must maintain rigid control at all times or risk his dark addiction finally seizing hold of him. The shadows of his past haunt him and he sees his bleak future each night when his brother wakes screaming, his blood addiction turning him savage. He cannot allow himself to feel, but when Sera walks into Vampirerotique, the erotic theatre he runs with three other vampires, to audition, she awakens dangerous desires in him-hungers that could spell the end of both of them.
Sera has wanted Antoine since the night she first saw the gorgeous aristocrat vampire. She can't ignore the deep carnal hunger he stirs in her or the ache to know the heat of his touch. With the help of her sire, an ex-performer at Vampirerotique, she sets in motion a game of seduction, one designed to thaw the ice in Antoine's veins and make him burn for her.
When Sera discovers the shocking truth about his past and the darkness that lurks within him, will she be strong enough to seize his heart with both hands and win him forever or will she lose him to the ghosts that still haunt him?

An erotic masterpiece!
Vampire Sera isn’t a real fan of accompanying her maker to the Vampirerotique theatre for the racy entertainment, she’s there for one reason and one reason only, the dark and mysterious Antoine, one of the theatre’s proprietors. Sera yearns to have a chance at seducing Antoine and is determined to get his attention at any cost. Her sire’s warnings just make her desire for him that more intense. Seducing the centuries old, tortured vampire will not be easy be an easy task for Sera, but stealing his heart is where the true challenge lies.
At first glance Antoine appears to be solely focused on work and have no intentions to pursue love. As Sera slowly works her magic, we learn he isn’t incapable of emotion but suppresses that part of him due to a heartbreak that has left him scarred. When those walls finally come down, Antoine reveals how how big of a heart he really has. His relationship with his brother Snow is quite touching and also shows a softer side to this dark and passionate vampire. Antoine is at his most vulnerable when he loves and when he loves it’s fiercely and completely, Sera is one lucky woman! Watching him open up to her melted my heart.
Sera is a protagonist to admire. Sure she’s not some kick ass warrior, but she’s a fighter in her own right, she puts it all on the line for love and doesn’t take no for an answer. Her character was a delightful surprise. We usually meet strong leading ladies who are feisty but rarely make the first move when it comes to romance. Sera’s confidence and compassion are her best assets, it’s a treat to watch her play the game of seduction with Antoine throughout the book.
Seduce is the third installment in the Vampire Erotic Theatre series and Ms. Heaton has outdone herself. She flawlessly creates a world of dark and erotic characters that tug at your heartstrings and make your pulse race! Sera and Antoine scorch up the pages and the Felicity Heaton’s intricate attention to detail allows the reader to play a voyeuristic role while reading their seductive encounters. The transformation of the hero from icy to passionate and our heroine’s determination and unconditional patience for her lover really gives us the best of both worlds, unbridled passion and romance. You’ll instantly be swept away into this erotic and sensual world of vampires and crave for more!
