Curse of Seduction

Curse of Seduction: Dark Princes of Purgatory is the first book C.R. Robertson’s newest steamy paranormal romance series. In this book, the author takes readers on a journey into Purgatory where four dark princes are cursed and bound to a queen who craves total control and will do anything and everything in her power to have it. This story focuses on Ezekiel, an incubus prince, who is the focus of the Blood Queen’s attentions. He has resisted her for over 200 years. His curse, while it brings him no physical pain, brings him mental anguish at the cost it exacts on those that he feeds from. His world is changed forever when his eyes meet those of a young vampire named Ilana. She’s never been able to stomach the touch of another man throughout her life nor feed like a true vampire, but all of that is about to change. Fate has stepped in and war, love, and change are at hand.

Curse of Seduction is one of the best books that I have read by this author! The author expertly and beautifully sets the stage with the prologue of this book to pique the reader’s interest in the characters and each of their stories in turn! This book focuses on Ezekiel and Ilana. Ezekiel, a cursed incubus prince, and Ilana a vampire hybrid with a secret that even she doesn’t know about! (Are you interested yet?!)  The author is quick to give readers a villain that they will absolutely despise more and more as the story goes on and they learn more about the twisted queen. There is more than one character to despise though as the author shows another character that brings rot to the family name.

Once you start reading this book, it quickly becomes one of those “hard to put down” ones. There are some twists, turns, surprises, and even a couple of spoilers. As this book is a paranormal romance, there are several steamy scenes scattered throughout. Now, for readers who are concerned about things…” going too far” or getting too much detail…the author doesn’t get too graphic with the scenes. My only complaint really is the few spoilers at the end of the story in the epilogue. I understand the point of the epilogue as it gives readers a glimpse into the future and what their lives are like, but it also reveals things to come. I know that we all know that it’s going to happen eventually, but the fun is waiting on what’s to come.

I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. This author brings an engaging storyline that hooks readers from the beginning. A unique vampire who is going to change everything in Purgatory by simply existing and uncovering a secret that her family has kept hidden for years. The time for all to be revealed has come and the time to fight is now. If you enjoy paranormal romance novels then this is a book that I recommend. I can’t wait for the next installment that will tell Raegel and Agatha’s story.
