Cian DeMarco, a sexy, rockstar billionaire vampire has lived in San Francisco's prestigious Cliff Side neighborhood in his beautiful mansion overlooking both the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean for seventy years. Happily—or so he thought. Until the rare beauty that is Magdalena De la Rosa sits down at one of the front-row tables in Club Royal where he and his band perform once a week.
Magdalena De la Rosa has it all—Bachelor's degree in journalism, a job she loves in California, a gorgeous apartment in San Francisco, and a dream guy. Except her boyfriend lives and works in Sacramento—an hour and a half drive from the city Magdalena has always fantasized about living in. All her dreams change, however, when she and her girlfriend find their way into an upscale nightclub and she's suddenly swept off her feet by the lead singer of that night's performing rock band, The Lost Boys.
Sparks ignite between the two until a threat that was thought to no longer exist returns to wreak havoc on Cian's and Magdalena's lives. Will the temptation to be together outweigh the reality of what Cian must do to keep Magdalena safe from harm?
A stand-alone book. The first in the all-new Immortal Hearts of San Francisco series. 18+ due to adult content.
Tempted By A Vampire by a good book to read in an afternoon. I am a huge paranormal fan, paranormal romance is what got me back into reading so it holds a special place in my heart. I liked Tempted By A Vampire, but I wasn’t blown away. Let me explain before you think I am bashing the book, because that is far from the case. I know that with all genres it is hard to be original one hundred percent, but when I read a genre like paranormal romance I am looking for something to make that book stand out in a sea of other options. Tempted By A Vampire is a good book, but for me it didn’t have that stand out factor that I was craving.
Cian is sexy from the start. He isn’t just a vampire, but a rocker as well so for me that increases his sexy level up big time. From the moment he sees Mags he feels a connection with her and must have her. I know I wouldn’t have been able to deny myself from him for very long, but then again I am a book whore so my restraint is not that strong.
Mags, well, let’s just say Mags wasn’t my favorite character. She didn’t want to open her eyes to her douche bag cheating boyfriend and come on now, I could maybe understand forgiving him once but then when you know he does it again and five minutes after saying you are done you start to back track making excuses. She was a weak character in the beginning and I just never saw her as anything more than that.
While Tempted By A Vampire may not have blown me away, the romance, the suspense and the drama made up for it. Like I said I finished this one in an afternoon, it’s the perfect length if you need a book to pass a couple hours with. I think most paranormal fans will enjoy this one, and I am looking forward to reading the next book.
"5 vampire fangy stars!!! I can’t even put into enough words to say how much I fell in love with this book. The story was captivating and I was sucked (no pun intended) in!!"- Alpha Book Club "Cian DeMarco is a 10 on the hotness scale. I had to keep fanning myself countless times. I fell under his spell right from the first chapter and was helpless to stop it. The steamy scenes with him left me breathless and of course wanting more. Not only is he a bad boy rocker and vampire, but he is also a man with depth and an inner pain that haunts him. He is definitely book boyfriend material and one I will never forget." - Reading For Fun "I am blown away by this book. I am so obsessed with Cian and Mags. The perfect combination of a sexy, dark brooding rocker and the sweet lovable girl, throw in the fact that the rocker is also a Vampire and you have the formula for a perfect book. This did not disappoint!"- Momma Says Read
