We first met Marisela in the first book of the Devil's Den series when she was trying to get out of her parent's control and having to be the "perfect" daughter. Now we are introduced to a all new Marisela, a leather wearing, Ducati driving, wild girl on the run from her ex boyfriend. She comes back into town hoping to get a job at the strip club where her sister worked and to start making her own way of life.

The second book in the Devil’s Den series features Marisela, Robyn’s sister. Marisela is nineteen and determined to live life on her own terms, even if they're dumb ones. Craig has been attracted to Marisela since she was seventeen and well, he's a bit of a manwhore. But he's in love with her. There's alot of drama and in the midst of that, romance happens.

The second book in the Devil's Den Series...and I quickly becoming a huge fan (love the writing style)!
We've met both characters in the first book. Marisela Gonzalez, is the little sister of Robyn. She's back in town, with trouble riding on her heels. She's leather, riding her Ducati, very young, and scarred from her guy she's running from. She's trying desperately to move out of Robyn's shadow, and be her own woman. Marisela

Oh Marisela's friend Macey sure doesn't hold her opinions back, "you mean he finally got over Robyn because Garrick nearly kicked his a**?" Macey throws me a look. "And he targets you because you're the next best thing?" Craig he has no qualms stating how he feels, "don't lie, Marisela. You win. I'm jealous as hell. I can't handle seeing you with another guy." Sometimes Craig needs his woman to set him straight:
"Our sex is fantastic, Craig, but we haven't even gone on a real date yet."

When I first picked up this book, I didn't even made the connection with the first book in the series "Surrender". It's probably because I didn't read the blurb a second time or just because I can be clumsy sometimes. It's only when I saw the same places and characters that I finally knew I was reading Robyn's sister's story. She was the girl who got everything from her parents who considered her perfect when she was in fact attracting trouble just like her big sister but in a different way. She ...more

I jumped right into this book after reading book one. I was excited to read about Marisela & Craig.

In book one Craig might have been portrayed as a jerk but I had a feeling that he was just a sweet guy deep down on the inside. Yes he's a player but why do we need to hate on that? Marisela was a completely different character in this book from book one. She's trying really hard to a lot like her sister. Some points I felt that she took this role so literally that it made her bitch. But a lot has

ARC from Netgalley This was a bit gritty with some characters and situations that were tough to read. Our gal is leaving Austin and returning home after an abusive boyfriend. I like how the author doesn't go overboard on details but gives us enough of the horror initially of Esteban's treatment of her. I really wished she hadn't kept any contact with him but abusive Esteban continues manipulation by horrible threats to our gal. There is a lot of characters and lots of hot scenes that match the r ...more

I devoured this in one sitting. Craig and Marisela are H.O.T. hot! She's the perfect blend of devil and angel and he's so possessive and alpha I wanted to hug him and smack him at the same time. It was a great read with soft tender moments. I loved the Devil's Den and all the characters. I'm completely hooked on the series and am looking forward to Surrender and Sin.

I could not put this book down! I was completely entranced by Craig and Marisela's story. The sex was hot- I loved the supporting characters (except Estevan)-the plot kept me guessing. I love happy endings and am so glad Craig got his life straightened out and Marisela allowed him into hers. I would love to read another installment of their story-including Robyn and Garrick!

Marisela and Craig get hot and heavy pretty fast and it's a wicked treat to see it unravel. Marisela's past is painful and Craig was previously in love with someone else. At least he thought he was. I really enjoyed this story and I'm definitely anxious for more.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading an ARC Copy of ‘SEDUCTION’(via:

This novel is of the Adult and Contemporary Romance genre and definitely shows it’s Erotica genre side as well. The story is written in the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views): Marisela Gonzalez and Craig Hanson.

Seduction is a not a novella but it is a short read that is filled with suspense, lies, drama, really hot sex, stubborn female characters and an alpha bad ass male. The author tells the story in alternate POV’s and holds no punches with the story line. This story deals with physical abuse, touches on rape, deals with survival and the need for self-forgiveness. We met Craig and Marisela in the first book. Craig is a bouncer at the Devils Den and Marisela is Robyn’s little sister
The BookChick
I was interested in Seduction after I first read the synopsis for the story. I actually thought the story would be intriguing and enjoyable. Unfortunately, that was not the case. Marisela and Craig were painfully awkward as a couple. They barely seemed to like or tolerate each other beyond the physical aspect of their relationship. Marisela was wholly unlikeable for me. I felt for her, as a woman, because of her dealings with her ex, but her personality was a tough pill to swallow. I felt that s ...more

This is the kind of story that when you have to put it down for whatever reason you can’t stop thinking about it and you’re rushing to get back to it because you need to know what happens next.

Rand gives an indepth look at a side of life many of us never see or experience. She does so in a captivating manner with an unforgettable story. I love this author’s writing style. She brings this world to life in such a vividly real manner that you don’t simply read it, you experience it. This novel left

I will start by reminding that this is the second book in the Devil's Den Series. It stands well on it's own but if you can read the first book so you understand the back stories.

In this installment Ms. Rand brings us Marisela and Craig's story. Marisela is a 19 year old running from trouble when she shows up at the Devil's Den one night. The Den is the strip club where her sister worked. She rides in on her motorcycle and walks into the middle of a fight between a patron and a club bouncer. She

Seduction was just as good as Surrender if not better! I loved reading about Marisela (Robyn's sister from Surrender) and Craig's road to happily ever after! I was not sure if I was going to like this book after the way Craig came across as a complete, pushy, arrogant jerk in Surrender, but I am so glad I gave him a chance because he turned out to be a really caring alpha male who just needed the right woman to put him in place and make him want to settle down!

Marisela was always the good girl of the dynamic duo that is Marisela and Robyn Gonzalez. While Robyn was kicked out an early age, Marisela was groomed by their conservative parents with the expectation that she would be pursuing a medical degree at Baylor.

I’ve enjoyed this series so far. This can be read as a standalone, however reading Surrender first, will help you understand the characters better. I always appreciate catching up with characters in a connected series such as this.

Seduction is the second book in the Devil's Den series. The first book was Surrender and I did have the opportunity to read it first. This book can be read as a stand alone but I think readers will benefit and take more from the story if they read them in order.

So when I read the blurb for Seduction, I was very intrigued by the story. This is a new adult story, which normally I would avoid like the plague, but Seduction grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let it go.
The Story is as follows; Marisela has arrived back in Austin after not talking to anyone for 6 months. But she has changed, gone was the clean girl image and now there is a tough secretive 19 year old with tattoos and piercings and she wants to dance at Devils Den. But who is the first person

Very good book. I enjoyed this book a lot, it gives us a better look at Craig & why he's the way he was in Surrender. A former cop & now head of security at the Devils Den he goes through women like water but that all stops when he sees Marisela again. Marisela is the younger sister of a former dancer at the club & one time love interest for Craig(not that anything happened). Marisela is running from her ex-boyfriend who has abused her, humiliated her & threatened to kill her. Looking for a job ...more

Nineteen year old Marisela Gonzalez arrives back in her home town running from a very abusive relationship. On the exterior her demeanor emits a self-assured leather clad motorcycle riding sexy siren. Internally she’s vulnerable, frightened for her life and embarrassed to admit to her family what she has been up to because as far as they were concerned she was supposed to be in college. She arrives at Devil’s Den, a strip club looking for her sister that worked there as a dancer. After an alterc ...more

Seduction (Devil's Den, #2), is just as hot and sexy as its predecessor! In this book, we get the story of Marisela and Craig. I'm not gonna lie, some of you are not gonna like Craig ... at first. You see, he has always had the hots for Marisela's sister, Robyn. But Roby's already got her man (Garrick). So yea, I had my moments of thinking he was an asswipe for even going near Marisela.
