Publisher's 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.

4 Tempted Stars

Hmm I quiet enjoyed this novel; I really wasn't sure going in what it was about just that it was paranormal.

So I was pretty intrigued. I liked Sabrina the most of all the characters and maybe Gayla.

I was a little disappointed in Roman, with all the feelings he is feeling he sure puts up all these road blocks. Also for being as old as he was I was again disappointed in his actions and not questioning enough.

Overall it was an interesting story and now I am going to start book 2 because I am hoping we get more of Gayla and Kane.

LOVED the narrations, she really made me keep reading especially when I was getting mad at the characters haha.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

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.

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.

Great book. I wanted to keep listening even after the audiobook had ended. Ms. Tetreault has gained a fan. Can't wait to check out her other books.

Amazing!

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

I read this book a while ago, yet I feel like I'm listening to an entirely new book! Amazing!

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

There is nothing that even comes close... Possibly a cross between the Anita Blake books and Cherise Sinclaire... This is a pretty naughty series, yet it's monogamous, as LKH's fan will know is NOT always the case... But it's AS naughty...,

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

Sabrina, since she is the lead.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No, except maybe for the really naughty bits, lol !

Any additional comments?

I read this originally as an ebook, but I MUCH prefer the audio. It is sooooooo freaking good!

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!

Dark, Intense and Sexy

Tempted is an amazing paranormal romance that is just as intense as it is sensual to say the least. I loved how the characters were written and developed. The storyline is descriptive, well written and full of non stop action of all kinds. Sonja Field does an excellent job a narrator with superb accents. I highly recommend this book to anyone over eighteen who loves paranormal romance novels. This is my honest unbiased review.

A Great Listen

Sonja Field is brilliant narrator for this wonderful paranormal romance.

Where do I start. okay, simple, this is a great and a must listen to.

When you start to listen about Sabrina and Roman you know where they are headed, but this book has many unexpected twist!
After their meeting you can the sparks are flying and that there’s a strong attraction between them. We have danger, there is love, there are twists and turns, but most of all there is all types of paranormal characters which made for a really interesting listen.

Very enjoyable.

I really like the book, the style of writing and content. Plenty of angst, action and love.

Narration was very good by Sonja Field if a little hurried at times. Her accents are really good and not a cringe in sight.

Overall a very listenable book that I thoroughly enjoyed and now on to the next.
