Dmetri and Christine were a joy to read. Dmetri is a 600 year old vampire that is used to getting everything and anyone that he sets his sites on. He's rich, uptight, and uncompromising. He doesn't need nor want love, just a hot woman in his bed.


In walks Christine. She is Dmetri's polar opposite. She's a young, carefree, werewolf looking for a mate to love. I love how this series flows. Each book picks up where the previous book ends, yet each story is very unique with fresh creative plots.

I absolutely love Christine's character... so much life and spunk... it's actually really a breezy read... Dmetri too is well written.arrogant cocky self centred to a large extent and that is so evident in the way his character is portrayed.

hot yes but the previous ones are hotter.

In this book we aren't really reading about a Kategan. It happens on their land and it is pretty exciting.

Dmetri Demidov is a Justicar and is sent to watch out for the Kategan since crazed vampire has escaped and is out for blood. There is a little tension since he used to date Vera. He runs every time a woman tells him she loves him. Everyone has always told him that when he fell in love he would understand what everyone is talking about. He tells him he will never fall in love.

Dmetri and Christine's story. ♥♥ I was really curious while reading the previous series if Dmetri would have his own book. And who would've thought he really did have. He's so handsome in my imagination and Christine is really pretty. They're the complete opposite of each other. The ever emotionless and cold Dmetri fall in love was fascinating to see. Great read for me. ...more

Much better. I was a little discouraged after book 4, but this one restored my faith. Dark Seduction, was good. Good character development, and great chemistry between the Christine snd Demetri. The mother's character was useless; story would have been better without her. ...more

Least favourite of the series. Hard to review sn e Im not sure I liked it but it is an easy read. I just didn't warm as much to Dimetri and Christine they way I did with the other characters. Also this had even less of a story compared to the previous book. I did like that Dimetri stood with Katey and and helped against evil vampires and Were's. Like most T.A. Grey books there are grammatical errors, spelling mistakes etc but I have read worse. 3 stars is likely too generous. ...more

Great read! I enjoyed Dmetri and Christine's story. It was fascinating to see the great emotionless Dmetri fall in love. After meeting his character in Wicked Surrender, I thought he was a total douche for hurting Vera the way he had years before. He redeemed himself just a little bit in my eyes after he helped give Jacks back to Vera, but I still didn't like him. However, in Dark Seduction the readers got to see another side of Dmetri. It was a side of him that I liked very much. I still though ...more

Great story again. I place this one up there with Vera & Jacks. Close tie, I think. Here the characters are fun, the conflicts engaging enough to bring it all together. The downsides are the usual author errors: grammar slips (who is a subject; whom is an object -- sheesh!), simplistic word choice and descriptions, distracting errors in details (sitting across a lap but now straddled with no mention of movement). Still annoying but less so given the overwhelming distractions of previous installm ...more
Maybe a little dissatisfied about Dmetri's book. I don't know maybe its cause when you expect a little to much from the book I have this feeling where I can't wait to finish it. I am not going to lie but at first I thought Christine's character may be what Dmetri deserves. She's tough and she's also has spunk but that spunk got a little annoying.

But don't be disappointed cause T.A Grey knows how to fire up these Alpha type vampire hotness. Still I'm happy that this all falls into place with one

The villains lack motivation or any backstory. Like why is the mom so obsessed with Christine marrying an Alpha? What sort of prestige or power does she think could possibly come from that? We don't really see a coherent picture of the greater roles that Alphas play to either support or discredit this assumption. Also, death in childbirth is very rare any more, unless things are somehow mysteriously different for vampires and lykaens, in which case that's not sufficiently explained. ...more

Damek has always been such a cool lover, which has issues with the "love'word.
Christine has a wicked mother with an obsessin with alphas.
Damek may not be a pack alpha but the vampire sure is a obssesive, possesive alpha guy.
I thought Damek overdid himself with his very phobic love issue, he is very stubborn. But I'm glad to have read his change/adaption in love in the Braydens story. He's a good buddy.

I had my doubts when I started this book because I had been quite disappointed in the previous one in this series. But the writing in this one was so much stronger, the personalities and the relationship between Dmetri and Christine were more fully developed, and the plot was generally more interesting. So, overall a much more satisfying read.
