Blurb

Venice--Her Serene Highness-- boasts many things, including Vampires... The mysterious Lord and Lady Lamberti invite Allegra and her two friends, Sophia and Eloise, to holiday with them at their exclusive summerhouse on the Rivera del Brenta. The evening of their arrival the three women are shocked to discover they’re among a clan of vampires and that they’re to compete for the affections of one four hundred and twenty year old elder, who’s in need of a bride. Those who refuse to play, those who aren’t accepting of the kindred, and those who fail, must die.

Allegra remembers Gabriele from her hedonistic dreams and is eager to know him better, and although Gabriele’s obsessed with her, he must spend time with each woman before he makes his selection...

Can Allegra play the kindred’s game long enough to garner the ultimate prize, Gabriele’s affections, or is the price…too high?

Come ~ be bitten by the first installment of Immortality’s Caress.

5 Blue Ribbons for Eloise's Awakening--Immortality's Caress book 2!

Historical/Erotic Romance
Publisher: eXtasy Books
Review Site: Romance Junkies
Reviewer: Moon Tee
Blue Ribbon Rating: 5
REVIEW SNIPPET
Monica M. Martin has written a great sequel to her first book, IMMORTALITY’S CARESS: ALLEGRA’S SEDUCTION. Eloise is a head strong vampire that knows what she wants andshe wants Christian out of her house. But does she? Christian enchanted her and she loved the kisses and caresses he gave her. The sex scenes are hot and will leave you fanning and wanting more. The setting, story, characters and dialogue are well developed, and Ms. Martin’s research shines with facts throughout, lending an authentic feel to this book. I enjoyed reading about this era and feel that ELOISE’S AWAKENING is a great book. Ms. Martin, I will be looking forward to reading your next book in this series.

Eloise's Awakening:Immortality's Caress 2 Available Now!


New Release at eXtasy Books! Link to book page and excerpt (18 + please)

Blurb

Eloise de Mann is over a hundred years old. She is vivacious, spirited, rather eccentric and somewhat gauche, for a vampire. Her past hurts have her steering clear of the male species, with the exception of a few select immortals, and her incompetent guardian Claude.

Eloise loathes coffins and will only use one when necessary, so naturally she is outraged when she awakens in one, knowing her male guardian has betrayed her. She climbs from the coffin in a right state, but hang nails, disheveled hair and a wrinkled, musty-scented gown, are the least of her problems! Upon entering her home, Eloise finds that an Englishman, Lord Christian Montgomery, has taken up residence there. Luckily for him, the deafening voice of reason, Queen Claudia's, forbids Eloise to harm him in any way! Her only option is to seduce him.

This pair battle over more than mere possessions. Come taste the second scorching installment of Immortality's Caress.

Allegra's Seduction: Immortality's Caress 1 ~ Every scene is rich in detail as well as sensuality. I could not put this book down.


Review from Romance Junkies
Allegra’s Seduction: Immortality’s Caress book 1
Available now at eXtasy Books www.extasybooks.com

Allegra is very much her own woman, strong and independent. The characterizations of her friends, Sophia and Eloise are also well developed and likeable. Gabriele is a delicious rake and I found him very endearing. I also loved the vivid descriptions of the costumes, parties, the language and mannerisms of that time. I really felt as if I were there.
I have not read this author before, but plan to remedy that.

You are a water witch. Beautiful and intuitive, you draw your power from the water. You can be tranquil and terrible at one and the same time and might be described as "moody." You appreciate literature and may be a poet/writer. Graceful and powerful as the water itself, the rest of us envy your ability to love and be loved by others.

Wonderful Review From Fallen Angel Reviews!

FAR~ Fallen Angel Reviews~ Reviewed by: Moonluster
Set in Venice in 1592, which is a great period for a vampire story, Allegra’s Seduction, will captivate you. Monica Martin has done a terrific job of showing their strengths and weaknesses. Ms Martin has done her research for this story and it shows. The darkness you would expect from a vampire story comes to life. The love scenes are really written well with the passion flowing between Gabriele and Allegra right from the start and just keeps getting better all through the rest of the book. I loved this book. It is a true love story that seemed so real to me. I especially thought the time period was fantastic. You will want to continue reading until the last page.Read Entire Review here: http://www.fallenangelreviews.com/2006/March/Moonluster-ImmortalitysCaress_AllegrasSeduction.htm

'The Road To Romance' Gives Allegra's Seduction A Rave Review!


Allegra’s Seduction is the first in a wonderful series that is by Ms. Martin. She writes with flair and definitely captures the imagination of the reader in this new twist of a vampire tale. Each page was intricately woven with great writing, a lush setting, and captivating characters; this is truly a book that stays with you long after the last page is read. Be forewarned, however, that there are some brief M/M, M/F/F and light bondage scenes that enhance the story instead of taking away from it. Ms. Martin sets up the story for the next book and this reviewer is highly looking forward to it!

Review Snippets for Crimson Destiny

Literary Nymphs ~Reviewer: Carolina Minx

Ms. Martin is an author who has put a lot of detail into this story. Whether it's battle scenes or love scenes, she is very descriptive about her subject. There is a male on male love scene at the beginning of the story that is helpful to the reader to show the relationship between Drago and the vampire who turned him… The story ends rather quickly but it does have a happy ending and is a satisfying read.

Coffee Time Romance~ Reviewer: Charissa ~

The author does a brilliant job of crafting both Sara and the villain in this novel. Their emotions, raw and succinct stirring the reader to understanding their hearts desires. While Drago is an attractive feature in this novel, it seems at odds that a battle tested warrior stands by so reluctantly until the very end. Overall, the strength of these characters desires both emotionally and sexually turn this into a good read and the culmination of 800 years of love and hatred are brought to a wonderfully climactic peak in the end.

What's Your Stripper Song? Mine is Scary...:(

Your Stripper Song Is

Closer by Nine Inch Nails

"You let me violate you, you let me desecrate you
You let me penetrate you, you let me complicate you
Help me I broke apart my insides, help me I?ve got no
Soul to tell"

When you dance, it's a little scary - and a lot sexy.

Allegra's Seduction: A vampiric version of the classic story of Cinderella and her Prince Charming...

More Review Snippets for Allegra's Seduction: Immortality's Caress book 1.

The Pink Posse (4/5)

Review: A 4 Pink Hats Off Salute to Monica M. Martin. A vampiric version of the classic story of Cinderella and her Prince Charming this story was a really great read.

While I would have liked to see a bit more emotional depth in the characters and a clearer picture of how their history contributed to their current state, it was nevertheless a book I had a hard time putting down.

I truly appreciated her dedication to accuracy. This lady definitely did her research on the correct terminology for the time period.

The heat in these pages was enough to steam up my glasses. I recommend this book as an excellent light read, a great addition to any e-Library. Reviewed by: J.D.

May Reviews

****EXCELLENT (4/5)
Ms. Martin has penned a detailed vision of historic Venetian Italy. It is filled with both the darkness that you would expect from this type of vampire story, as well as the passion and love necessary for an erotic romance. I was favorably impressed with the way the author made the vampire world come to life. The love scenes are beautifully written, and you can taste the passion between the two.

Warning: There is graphic violence and sex, with hints of M/M, F/F, BDSM, and menage a trois.

Coffee Time Romance (3/5)

Rating 3/5 The love story of Allegra and Gabriele is very emotional and powerful. This story is well written and the characters were, for the most part, real to me. There were times the vampires seemed to follow the standard idea of what a vampire is too closely. I would have liked to see a bit more world building here, but beyond that this is a story I enjoyed. I would recommend it to anyone who likes dark vampire romance.

JERR Gives Allegra's Seduction: Immortality's Caress 1~ 4 stars & the big O

Genre: Romance/Vampire/ Series
ISBN: 1-55410-617-6
Reviewer: Aggie Tsirikas
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Heat level: O (orgasmic)


Allegra Montague, along with her two best friends Eloise and Sophia, are invited to the villa of Lord and Lady Lamberti for a weekend jaunt. Little do these ladies realize what they’re about to encounter before succumbing to the temptations around them. They will be challenged for Count del Fra’s affections so that this elder may select his bride, and in the process find themselves amongst a group of decadent vampires. Gabriele seems taken by Allegra’s seductive allure, but what of her equally delicious friends Eloise and Sophia?

Set in the lush and opulent 1592 Venice, Allegra’s Seduction is the first book in the Immortality’s Caress series by Ms. Martin that is well worth investing for a “meaty” and satisfying read. This 200 plus page story is rich in detail with aspects of intrigue, romance, and a whole lot of naughtiness that is sure to excite your senses with some really stirring sex scenes. There are some interesting aspects of Ms. Martin’s vampires, or rather kindred as they’re referred to. They have both strength and weaknesses making them compelling creatures. Gabriele, our 430 year old vampire is a romantic, thoughtful, forceful and compassionate man…and a right match for our heroine. Allegra seems unsure of herself at first, despite the fact that she’s a worldly woman of her times. The setting, story, characters and dialogue are well developed, and Ms. Martin’s research shines with facts interspersed throughout, lending an authentic feel to this book. Gabriele’s “maker”, Marcus, and his Queen Claudia also play an interesting role in this story. The length also allows the author to develop the main characters and set the scene for Eloise’s upcoming story without losing any momentum. Just be aware there are brief M/M, F/F, light bondage scenes, some graphic violence and ménage, but these don’t detract from the story.

NEW RELEASE~ CRIMSON DESTINY

Cover by Martine jardin

OUT NOW!

Blurb:Cursed, Drago has walked in darkness over eight hundred years, without a female by his side. Love has no place in his world, only death and abstinence. When a heartbroken Sara steps into his forbidden realm… reads his journals and becomes obsessed with him, she lures him with her intensity, awakening his long denied desires and emotions…

Review Snippet:
This is an intense tale that is a real page turner. There is a lot to keep this couple apart, but in this case, love will not be denied. They The storyline is compelling, the sex hot, and the characters are well developed. Khalid is a good villain. Drago is the lonely passive male unwilling to fight and challenge Khalid, until his true love is endangered... Ms. Martin has written a tale that will be remembered long after reading the final line. May @ MayReviews.com ~
