*************** E-Book provided by the author ***************

I just want to say a massive thank you to the lovely Kym Grosso; I was over-joyed when asked to read this book. I had already been very impatiently waiting to read it so this just made it all the sweeter.

I absolutely adored the first book in this series (Kade's Dark Embrace), and this book was just as brilliant.

It was great to get to see Kade and Sydney again and knowing they plan to marry soon was wonderful.

We briefly met
This was an excellent read that moved and flowed so well that I read it one sitting. The story was engaging and kept me wanting to no more from the first page. The characters are well fleshed out and speak and act in a manner that is natural for them and makes it easy to relate to their various situations.

In this second book in the Immortals of New Orleans series Luca has been captured after an attack as he was delivering Samantha and Ilsbeth to the coven house. When he is rescued by Kade and S

Luca's Magic Embrace will have you hooked

Luca Macquarie is Vampire to his very core, he is powerful and is known to be brutally cold. Luca has stood at his maker and best friend Kade's side for two centuries and will protect his own with his life.

Samantha Livingston is a 'white hacker' someone who tries legally to break into systems to help companies protect their information, that is until she is kidnapped. Samantha is enthralled and is pretending to be someone she isn't
I was hoping that the first book of this series "Kade's Dark Embrace" was a fluke and that the series would get better. I was a little too optimistic. Unfortunately, I don't think I will be continuing this series.

After reading book #1 Kade’s Dark Embrace of the Immortals of New Orleans last summer I was very excited to begin with the second installment of this great series by Kym Gosso.

Luca's Magic Embrace takes place in a world where vampires, werewolves and witchcraft just like the first book. It starts of where  Kade’s Dark Embrace was ended. Kym Grosso has written a great story ful with this paranormal being, strong characters and don't forget HOT scenes. The descriptions provide a good backdro

ok, disclaimers must be made. Read my review of the first book for details, but the most important issue is that I have met the author, and she gave me the second book for free since she liked my review of the first book, and she knows I'm poor, and took pity on me. So I got to save ninety nine cents.

I think probably the most significant issue with this book is that if you didn't like the first one, you probably won't like the second one, but if you DID like the first book, you will

This book takes off right after the end of the first book in the series (which I did not read), and vampire Luca is missing. While escorting a couple of witches home, he gets kidnapped and silvered, left completely helpless until he manages to make one brief cry for help a week later to his maker. He is quickly rescued (otherwise that would've been an incredibly short book), only to find out the human-turned-witch he helped save, Samantha, has abandoned ship and moved back to Pennsylvania.

LUCA’S MAGIC EMBRACE is the second storyline (October 2012 release) in Kym Grosso’s slightly erotic Immortals of New Orleans series. Kym brings together an assortment of supernatural powers including vampires, werewolves and witches and writes a sexy, dark and dangerous blend of seduction and magic.

Samantha Irving is a computer wiz and a reluctant witch. With her powers of magic at a virtual negligible level, our heroine takes a long over

Luca is a very sexy Australian vampire living with his maker Kade in New Orleans but as this story begins Luca is held prisoner, drained of blood and fighting for his life! It's only through the strong familial link that he shares with Kade that he is rescued but it's touch and go as to whether or not Luca will make a full recovery. When Luca awakens all he can think about is the young witch Samantha who he believes was targeted when he was taken captive. Samantha suffered greatly at the hands o ...more

Luca's Magic Embrace starts off under the shadow of excitement and ends with one humdinger of a cliffhanger. Between the start and finish comes a journey of suspense and super steamy encounters featuring to-die-for male characters and heroines who are stronger than they think they are.

Samantha's been through a lot in the previous book, tortured and enslaved by a rogue witch, and is trying to come to terms with what happened to her and how her life has changed. She's sworn off vampire

My thoughts:
I loved Kade's Dark Embrace, which is book one of the Immortals of New Orleans by Kym Grosso so when I had the opportunity to read and review book two (I had been hoping it would be Luca's story!) I jumped at the chance.

I was as happy with book two as I was with book one. The characters are fantastic. I was excited to see that this story more or less picks up where book one ended, bringing the characters I loved from Kade's story into Luca's while adding new ones. A

Luca’s Magic Embrace is the 2nd book in the Immortals of New Orleans series by Kym Grosso. We first met Luca,the surly sexy vampire, in Kade’s Dark Embrace. Luca is one vampire who would rather keep his distance from humans as they are too fragile, yet he finds himself inexplicably drawn to a cute little witch, Samantha, he helped rescue. Samantha was turned into a witch by an evil force before Luca saved her. Having been forced to live in a local coven so she could be educated in her new witchy ...more

Braine's Talk Supe review

I liked LUCA'S MAGIC EMBRACE better than Kade's Dark Embrace. I always have a soft spot for betas and Luca may be one but he's as fearsome and loyal as his maker and friend, Kade. We first meet Luca in Immortals of New Orleans 1 and he definitely made an impression on me and I know that this dude's story will be sexy and mighty interesting.

I may just be two books in but I'm getting a good grasp of Kym Grosso's style and I'm really digging it. I love the fact th

Luca’s Magic Embrace is the second book in the Immortals of New Orleans Series.

I’ve had the pleasure to read book one, too – Kade’s Dark Embrace.

The action takes place in a world where vampires, werewolves and witchcraft are accepted as a way of life. That in itself is a thought-provoking concept and I enjoyed playing the consequences of such an existence through my mind.

Equally enjoyable was the transformation the main character goes through – for a man who d

Wow this book had such an exciting plot It all started when Luca had been attacked and abducted while safe guarding Samantha, who was going to the witches coven for the training of her newly gained skill.
Samantha having reluctantly spent time with the witches, but couldn't seem to connect with her powers, decided to leave. Needing some time to get her head around everything that had happened to her, she just wanted her normal life back. A retreat in the mountains seemed ideal.

This book is about Luca & Samantha. Vampire & Witch.
They actually make a great pair. They get to know each other as Luca is protecting her from someone trying to get a magic amulet from her. That she has no clue where this is does not matter to them. As they are guided in their search she is also getting to know her powers as a witch. This is a pretty steamy book. WOW some of the intimate scenes had my glasses fogging up. There are some good action scenes in here also. Love the end

Another GREAT read from Kym Grosso. I might have even liked Luca more than Kade (shhh don't tell him

Luca was one badass vamp and this book was full of action, smexy scenes and even LOL moments. Everything I love in my Paranormals. I am moving right on to the next one because I LOVE sexy as hell Wolves!!

I enjoyed everything about this book. Luca finally finding true love with Samantha that he never expected to find, especially with a mortal but then finding out that Samantha is a witch, with the ability of conjuring elements like rain and fire that end up helping rescue and saving Luca, the love of her life. The storyline kept me obsessed with this book that I didn't get much sleep because I couldn't sto

I loved Luca in the first book and I was so happy with his book. Samantha is a strong woman after everything that has happened to her. But with Lucas help, she becomes even stronger. This book brings in other characters that we will see later also. I also liked the little BDSM scene in this one. All the way around this was a good book

Let me call it now...I love this series! Luca's Magic Embrace is the second book and between the vampires, wolves, intrigue and romance, I can't put this book or this series down. Ms. Grosso catches my eye with her covers, draws me in with her blurbs and captivates me with her stories.

Another 4-star rating for Ms. Kym Grosso. Really what works for me despite this being a series, each book works well as a stand-alone. All the characters are whether they are the MC or secondary are covered so wel
Yummy. I really, really liked this installment of this unnamed series. I think Kym Grosso is on to something. It was evident that she has range when it comes to character development. Her supernatural world of vampires, werewolves, and witches is not original but neither is fried chicken until the right cook gets their hands on it.

Luca and Samantha's relationship moved fast but it worked. When last we saw Samantha. she was being rescued from a dungeon. She was the victim of an evil p
