Book Description:

Book Seven in the Magical Seduction series.
One woman. Two brothers.

It was supposed to be one night only—an escape into pleasure. A night for Nica to forget her obligations and her secrets. Through hours filled with sensually wicked exploration, an emotional connection develops with the two gorgeous brothers she had no way of anticipating. But a stranger with an ultimatum and a dangerous power forces her to reveal her own magic to save her new lovers.

Now Tanner and Jensen are drawn into a world they never knew existed by a woman whose abilities they can barely comprehend. But they won’t let the fact that they have no magic get in the way of protecting their woman. Even if it means sacrificing their lives.

Book Review:

Nica is enjoying her last nights of freedom with her best friend, Tira. Tira dragged Nica to the club hoping to get Nica to loosen up and find herself a great guy for the night. Nica is sad to know she’ll soon have to give up freedom in order to fulfill her family obligation. She much rather be back home at their apartment with some ice cream than trying to hook up with a one nightstand.

Tira gets her wish and soon Nica interacts with a sexy guy named Jensen. They immediately hit it off. Nica finds herself drawn to Jensen and they spend hours talking.

She gets so wrapped in Jensen that she doesn’t notices his brother Tanner walk up to them. Nica likes what she sees about both men. She is shocked to discover Tanner and Jensen are twins. With her secret gifts, Nica is able to tell there’s nothing wrong about these sexy twins.

Tanner and Jensen invite Nica back to their place. Even though they both wary of Nica, the men can’t help but feel sexy attracted to her.

This night becomes an explosive passion that erupts between Jensen, Nica and Tanner. But before they can further explore their newfound passion, evil comes a calling.

A secret evil masterminds are trying to use Nica and her gifts for nefarious plans.

Nica gets a frantic phone call from Tira telling her that some stranger was looking for her and new Nica’s name.  Nica tries to calm Tira down while trying to keep Jensen and Tanner out of the loop.

Unfortunately, evil finds Nica before she can explain to her men what’s going on.

Stephanie Julian is no ordinary writer. She can bring the magic of her words to enchant many a reader. And Seduced by Two is by far one the most creative and intriguing novels, I have recently read. I definitely love how Ms. Julian outside the box with this addicting series.

In Seduced by Two, we discover that there is more going on in the world than a human knows. We learn about Nica and her great sorrow at being summoned home by her familial obligations. She is distraught until the night she meets Jensen and his twin brother Tanner. Together they bring Nica more joy and happiness than she’s felt in a very long time.

It’s just too bad that there’s an evil organization out to harm Nica’s loved ones to get what they want.

Lucky for her, Nica’s not alone and has some backup to help her through this situation.

Will Nica be able to save her men for danger she’s unwilling brought into their lives?

Will Tanner and Jensen just Nica go without a fight?

Or will the evil organization make Nica’s loved ones pay the ultimate price for her negative response?

Seduced by Two is full of drama, action, sexual tension and lots of love making scenes by three intriguing characters.

There’s plenty more that I could say about how much I enjoyed reading Seduced by Two, but that would definitely ruin it for many readers. I sure as hell don’t want an angry mob coming after me for ruining the book for them.

I give Seduced by Two a rating of 5 Stars.

About the author:

Stephanie Julian is an avid reader who used to have a book-a-day habit. Then she realized she not only wanted to read books but write them too. Romance has always been her first love, the sexier the better. Hot men, strong women and a heaping helping of magic dominate (and she does mean dominate) her blazing hot stories.

When she’s not writing, she’s, well…she’s certainly not cleaning. And she only cooks when her guys complain that they’re hungry (ain’t cereal grand!).

Otherwise, she’s got her fingers on a keyboard, her butt in a chair and her head in the stars.

Rose Thorne doesn’t want much. She’d like a man to love and for village idiots to stop claiming she’s a witch. Just because she does a little magic doesn’t mean they need to burn her at the stake. It takes ages to get the smell of smoke out of her hair. On her way home after foraging for mushrooms, she’s assaulted by two local lechers. Her rescuer appears out of the mist—a tall, dark, handsome stranger with a mouth-watering body. Finally something in her miserable life is going right. Furthermore, her savior turns out to be mute, so he can’t ruin things by saying something stupid.

Can life get any better?

Harmon has devoted his life to the destruction of Dark Mages. His work has required him to walk a knife-edge between darkness and light. Isolde’s purity balances the shadows he’s acquired, but he may have spent too long in the darkness to ever be free of its taint.
