Book Review:
Scarlata has only one thing on her mind concerning Justin Johannson….to kill him. He may be a fine specimen for a human but he is no match for her. He will get what is coming to him after daring to capture her.

Justin has spent many years trying to make his dream into reality. He has searched for a long time to find proof that there is paranormal life forms. Moreover, what a dream come true to find the proof he needed show up and give him more passion than he has ever had before.

Scarlata had not counted on sleeping with Justin. She wanted to a little fun before killing this human. What started out a just a fling turned into something much more than either one expected…

Justin manages to charm his way into Scarlata’s life. He refuses to let the one woman disappear from his life. There is even more danger that surrounds an unaware Justin. Scarlata is not about to let someone else have the pleasure of killing Justin. She saves him from the real menace that was out to capture her.

Scarlata and Justin realize that he was just a pawn used to draw her out.
They barely make it out alive and head over to an acquaintance of Scarlata’s.
There they learn that Justin is not just a regular human. He is much more.

Justin shows Scarlata just how much he cares for her and is not willing to let her just walk away from him. Later, Justin learns the truth about his father and is shocked tremendously.

Is there anyone that he can completely trust? Will Scarlata give in to Justin? What other secrets will Justin and Scarlata discover? When danger comes a knocking on their door, will Scarlata and Justin make it out alive?
Stephanie Julian brings readers her novel, Seduced by Magic. The very first title on her wonderful series. In Seduced by Magic, reader will find a fiery-spirited folletta.
Scarlata’s plans to kill Justin fall through after having sex with him. She does not realize at the time that Scarlata just sealed her fate when decided to have sex with Justin.
Justin is just as determined to keep Scarlata in his life. She is more than he could possibly dream of and cannot wait to discover more. He is going to use all his charm to win her over.

Scarlata refuses to believe that a mere human like Justin can have such a hold over her. Nevertheless, the more time Scarlata spends with Justin, the more she wants him.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Seduced by Magic. The heroine is one crazy ass woman. She may have started off as a bitch in this book but I soon realize that‘s just part of her own charm. She is such a fascinating character to read about and you cannot help but laugh at the predicament she put herself in now. Whenever Justin and Scarlata are within distance between, the sparks fly and the scenes become scorching hot.

I so enjoyed discovering the mystery surrounding Justin and his family. Even loved reading about the secondary characters such as Sal and Nortia. Cannot forget to mention just how much I love the nicknames, Ms. Julian gives to her characters.

I give Seduced by Magic a rating of 5 Stars.

About The Author: 
I'm an avid reader, who had a book-a-day habit until I realized I not only wanted to read books but write them, too.

Romance has always been my first love, the hotter the better. I started reading romance in seventh grade when I discovered Harlequin Presents before graduating to Bertrice Small and
Kathleen Woodiwiss. I spent most biology classes with a romance hidden inside my textbook.

After graduating from Penn State with an English degree (and parents who never once said (but had to be thinking) "What the hell are you going to do with an English degree?"), I took a job at a newspaper because the only thing I wanted to do was write and they were going to pay me to do it. And I needed the job. Covering municipal government meetings gave me plenty of time to think about exactly what I wanted to write. For me there was really no choice. It was romance all the way.

So, about 10 years ago, I decided to rekindle my childhood dream of writing romance, joined Romance Writers of America and Valley Forge Romance Writers and set about becoming published.

So, here I am, finally.

Book Three in the Hot Magic series.

The last thing Braeden needs is to be trapped alone with Athena, his former lover and current nemesis, but when instincts lead him to save her life, that’s exactly where he ends up. Landing in an alternate universe with one sexy witch, it isn’t long before he’s recalling steamy nights and the wrap of Athena’s long, golden limbs around his body.

As a powerful wizard, he has no business loving Athena, especially since his family, the strongest guild of wizards, have fought Athena’s coven for centuries. Being alone with her now is going to wreak havoc on his self-control, since sex with Athena is the best he’s ever had and he can’t seem to keep his hands off her.

Along with fighting an evil they never expected, Athena and Braeden futilely attempt to fight their banked passion. Soon, hot sex, dangerous battles and exploding desire turn their world upside down and leave them questioning their decision to part ways.
