Another four stories, another four masters. I truly enjoyed it. But it ended up on a cliffhanger with no other following volume, so... Damn it.

Masters of Seduction Volume 2

Amazing! I am love with all these writers. This collection really had me on edge the whole way through. Can I get an AMEN! What better way to get more for you money than with this action packed bundle! Great stories, lasting characters, and inspiring heroines. The idea of the houses is clever and intriguing. Each author is strong in their own way, and really brings their own flare to the overall plot. Readers will enjoy this collection with its mesmerizing detail to

MASTERS OF SEDUCTION 2: Slips into Something More Comfortable

Audiobook provided by Tantor Media for review purposes. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted.

I liked this volume in the MASTERS OF SEDUCTION anthology series better than I had the first (review) and in particular I liked Laura Wright’s story, Dauntless and Alexandra Ivy’s tale, Reckless.

It's a great compilation of stories intriguing sexy and exciting experience. Great authors combined. I hoped the books were longer reads and or released sooner. Can't wait til the next one. !!!

Overall I'd give this book 4*. Most of them were really good and deserved 5*, but I didn't like the Wright's story - not much going on except for sex and the end was too abrupt - I didn't get why it was a resolution of the situation and this short lacked an ending in the story line.

The ending of this book! Ah man! In this book we see 4 more Incubi masters find their unexpected mates through the Nephilim who somehow end up in their lives. I love how all 4 novellas are written by different authors but they all fit so well into each other. I only wish that there was a volume 3 because there is definitely a cliffhanger to this book. So if you absolutely hate cliffhangers I would avoid this anthology but if you want a great book that has a boatload of potential you'll want to ...more

Great continuation with the major storyline and with different houses. I still stand by my first review that I'm not a fan of Laura Wright's portion. Again with the old way of speaking and this time she did a Cinderella retelling and I just really hated it. The rest of the stories are amazing. I'm just sad that there are no other volumes and it ended on a cliffhanger.

I enjoyed each of the novellas. I think they could have been even better if they were tied to each other more. Grant it...I believed the first and last were tied closely; but I'd love for them all to be more of a series. I read volume 2 before 1. So I'm curious on how those story went. When they're available from the library, I'll give them a go.

Loved both volumes. Do we have a f/u on the stories.
Please complete them, I am hooked.
These authors never disappoint me.

Really love this series! Can't for the next volume and see how this story plays out!!
PricelessThis was a cute and short story. I enjoy Lara Adrian's style of story telling, but this one just ended up being too short. It was good, and had a good plot and character development, but the ending was just too abrupt and a bit corny. Up to the last half page, I was enjoying it, but it felt like she realized she had to suddenly end it and move on. The whole last scene could have been perfect, if it hadn't been the last scene. I wanted Sorin to sweep her off, back to his Casino and I ...more
"Masters of Seduction" - Volume 2. An anthology with authors Lara Adrian, Donna Grant, Laura Wright and Alexandra Ivy.


A great return to the Incubus and Nephilim world. The first three stories are lightly connected to the overall storyline of the series. The last story really enhances the overall series storyline of the conspiracy of the Sovereign and the Obsidian Throne and the possible war that may start between the Incubus/Nephilim world and the angels. Each romantic couple is

This is the second volume in the Masters of Seduction multi-author series containing stories by Lara Adrian, Donna Grant, Laura Wright and Alexandra Ivy. Although each novella in the series features a different main couple there is an overarching plot that carries across the whole series so I would recommend reading both volumes in order to get the most out of the reading experience.

I'll give you a quick overview of the stories but I don't want to go into too much detail because it would be easy

Initial Thoughts:

1st story: Sorin and Ashayla. I enjoyed their story, though it starts strangely in a casino and over a bet, it was captivating. Ashaya's need to get to the necklace and Soren's need to possess her. It moves quickly but it is understandable for a novella. But the premise of a Nephilim and incubus gave the speed of the plot believability. It was satisfying and I enjoyed their chemistry and passion. Though I was intrigued by the necklace and wonder about its importance and the

Absolutely nothing special even if some stories are better than others.

Assolutamente niente di che, anche se alcune storie sono meglio di altre.
Much like the first anthology, which should be read first, except not as seamless. Again it ends without a solution to the 'bad-guys' but each story is it's own HEA. I listened to the audio book and it was read well by, Arika Rapson. The Donna Grant story, 'Boundless' was kinda boring, but I find that about all of the stuff I've read by her. I loved the Cinderella homage of 'Dauntless'. It could have used a wee bit of conflict to really make it zing, but it was sweet anyways with an ending that ...more

Priceless: House of Ebarron - Lara Adrian
This was a good little read, and i did enjoy it, however it just didn't captivate me that much. Although i read it, it seemed to drag on a little and I just wanted to get onto the next one in the series. Though the scenes were great, and the chemistry was hot.

Boundless: House of Drohas - Donna Grant
I quite enjoyed this book. A cute quick HEA to come out of the worst circumstances. The chemistry was great and it was a light fun read. Loved that it was

"In the realm of the Incubi Masters, pleasure is to die for and love is the deadliest game of all..."
This second volume of Masters of Seduction (books 5-8) include Priceless: House of Ebarron by Lara Adrian, Boundless: House of Drohas by Donna Grant, Dauntless: House of Trevanion by Laura Wright and Reckless: House of Furia by Alexandra Ivy.

Another amazing collection of stories in this serial. Once again I am amazed at how these stories flow and interweave between the different authors. The overall storyline and plot is getting even better and they have managed to keep it consistent over 8 different stories, no small feat. I loved loved loved the Cinderella story from Laura Wright and what's better than a bad boy who finds there is more out there from Alexandra Ivy? Lara Adrian created characters I wanted to learn more about and ...more

Will there be a continuation?

Volume 2 was just as quick as a read as volume 1. These novellas were extremely fast-paced and over way too soon. I wouldn't be opposed if the authors actually did full-length novels instead of the novellas. I find the story lines to be deserving of longer than 75-110 pages.

I do not have a favorite among the Incubi- they all seem incredibly delicious.

Volume 2 should only be read after having read Volume 1. It's definitely not a standalone book/collection/group effort? You need the details that

All I can say is the Lara Adrian and Donna Grant saved this collection of stories. The storyline is good, but as always, PNR writers lose themselves in the sex scenes and forget the plot. I know this is about Incubus', but I still want to read a good, exciting story and not have every other page be about the 1000 way you can describe genitals and positions. Lol. Basically, I give this second volume a 2.5, but Goodreads does not offer that.

I'm assuming there will be a Volume 3 at some point in

I really enjoyed the first of this collaborations, so I had to have the second one too and it didn't disappoint. The world they created is deep and fascinating and the masters - yummy! Packed on top (pun intended) strong and sassy heroines and the story is running! My favorite is the third one, the Cinderella story with the adorable "Fairy godfather" - I am SO happy he will get his HEA afterwards too! And the best thing is: The story isn't finished so there is more to come! Looking forward to ...more

Edge of my seat, and left hanging again. I hate Novellas and I hate cliffhangers, but somehow these for ladies keep me reading ... and coming back for more. These masters are just as sexy and intriguing as the first four. I just wish the stories were longer. Hopefully they will take the time to revisit all eight. So now I'm stuck drumming my fingers waiting for volume 3.

While I do enjoy the shorts, I find that overall the story line loses impact as stuttering snippets. Def more sex than story. Loved most of the characters. Each short becomes more predictable & obvious...and the titles aren't a very good fit.
So, the real reason to read this is for that sweet, heady first attraction...just don't expect it to blossom into a rich romance.

What more can I say when four best selling authors have joined their forces and compiled such great stories? It's actually brilliant to create a project like this one. The stories are so engrossing. I will definitely have a book hangover again. I am assuming that there's another installment after this because of the cliffhanger. I hope so, or I will totally lose it.
