“During that month, you will be completely mine. You will live in my home, obey me in all things. Cater to me only.”

His mouth was against my throat. I felt the scrape of fangs. My head swam with a mixture of fear and excitement.

“Is that clear?”

Welcome to the shadow world of Blood Courtesans.

i enjoyed all the courtesan books, all were awesome reads. ensnared fits right in that series.
when one of the eldest vampires takes an interest in her , she doesn't really know what to do with that fact. her life is already a mess, when things get worse, she feels she has no other choice but to take up his offer: be his blood courtesan for 1 month.
the life she enters is like nothing she's seen before. remy is different from what is told about vampires, he's not even cold!
they settle in fine the

Ensnared: A Vampire Blood Courtesans Romance by Rebecca Rivard and Michelle Fox is
The Hottest read of the Blood Courtesans!!

Everyone of the Blood Courtesans Novella are each uniquely different, but I have got to say this one is by far the most down and gritty one yet. Sweet

Down on her luck Star Salazar is wondering how she is gonna come up with next months rent. Still jobless she goes out for some fresh air and comes across a tall dark stranger..Remy de la Lune..hehe
She has no idea what he is

3.5 rating for me.
It was just okay for me. I haven't read any other books in the series but I know they can be read as standalones. The story was filled with steamy sex, secrets, and sweetness. It was a cute story but it didn't grab my attention like I was hoping for.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Great Story

Oh my, what a powerful and old and rich vampire will do to get the woman he wants. Remy went a little over the top, and his intentions were selfish. But a good woman knows how to bring a vampire to his knees. If she lives through the experience. They both have enemies who would rather see them permanently dead than happy.

Down right sinful

This was down right deliciously wicked and sexy. My god Remy is the tall, dark, mysterious and sexy vampire we all want. He is swoon worthy and lucky as heck! Star was the perfect match for him. The author used the word survivor to describe her and it is so accurate!Their relationship may have started out as a business deal but turned into a hot ember of love and steamy sex in the blink of an eye. I devoured this book in just a few hours and hope that maybe these two will get an

Remy is a Vampire Count, one of the oldest and most powerful vampires in the world, ruling over five covens. It has been a lifetime since Remy has scented blood as sweet as Star’s; he craved her freshness, that spark that made her stand up to him, even in fear – he wanted her as his next blood courtesan, but for now he would have to wait. Desperate for a job, Star agrees to become a cocktail waitress in a small, shady gambling club; her friend Janelle has vouched for her, but she wonders what sh ...more

Star is accused of stealing money from the wrong man. The only way to save herself is to accept money from a centuries old vampire who wants her as his Blood Courtesan.

Remy is a vampire who has lived a very long time and seen just about everything. But meeting Star sparks something in him. He has to have her no matter the cost. But will the cost be even higher than he expected? Could she be the one to pierce this vampire's heart?

What a dark, sensual, erotic ride! This one will leave you begging

A new twist on this enthralling series – the advantage of many authors – way to go Rebecca!!

Star has lost her job, and only has one month’s rent left in the bank. Getting a glimpse and “sense” of Star ancient vampire Remy, whose initial advance was rebuffed, instructs his blood-bonded human Malik to “get her” but make her believe she has a choice. Star is thrilled to be hired as a cocktail waitress for a private club, but events are setup that require her to agree to a contract with Remy. 30 d

Star is a cocktail waitress in a club where she is accused of stealing $100,000 and has to return it by the following night. As a side note, Remy's bodyguard set up the entire deal, but he acts like the knight in shining armor and pays her debt. As repayment Remy asks Star to become his courtesan for one month. But she didn't count on falling for him.

Star and Remy's story is a good addition to the series. Watching Remy screw up and then have to make amends was fun to watch. He fell for her, but

Vampire fiction often chooses to represent vampires as either good or bad; in Ensnared Ms. Rivard depicts the vampire world in shades of gray, much like her main character's sketches. Remy is an unlikely hero, and his actions border reprehensible. He has to work to win over Star and the reader. Star's desperate independence and innate strength of will are well-balanced by her dreams and creative talent as an artist. She's a woman we can all admire and cheer for.

I enjoyed the balance between roma

Every time I read a Blood Courtesan story, I think the next one will never be as good as this one. But each and every one just gets more exciting, the challenges are more suspenseful and the romance unbelievable. What fascinates me also, each book is by a DIFFERENT author but the same quality & style of the plot runs so smoothly, the characters are well developed and there is a right balance with the violence, sex, threats, vampire mystique and love. In this series, a few vampires have been ...more

My first book by this author but she came up trumps for this series.
Just loved this book. This story flowed well and was a good read, I just would have liked a bit more discussion on their feelings as they felt them. Teeny tiny bit more.
Star was fresh, sensible and really likeable. You could not help but feel for her.
Remy was a bit spoilt as most aged vampires tend to be, He saw Star and did a rotten thing to get her as his courtesan. At the time it did not matter to him as he did not expect to

Omg what a great book....seriously very hot, my god Remy I think I'm in love ,so smooth suave and he's seriously hot. Star first sees Remy whilst she's was sitting on the steps of her apartment. With the sun not quite up she's listening to birds singing and squirrels busying them selves, while thinking how she can pay rent with no job. Then things went hush and see saw him.... Time stood still as he approached, his gaze was fixed on Star and although she knew she should go back in the

Star has been struggling with no job and about to lose her attic apartment, she takes on a job at a questionable establishment, only to be accused of robbery days later. She never imagined to be beholden to a vampire, but she finds no other way out, but to become his Blood Courtesan.

I'm not sure if I've read a book written by Rebecca Rivard before, but I will definitely keep on reading her works in the future. The Blood Courtesans series is a collection of short vampire stories, where a woman has to fulfill the feeding and sensual needs of a vampire. The reasons are always varied, and Rivard's take on the theme had me from the get go. Star was a strong protagonist, and didn't let herself be totally done in by her vampire paramour, Remy. Of course Remy was hot as all get out ...more

Another great book in the Addictive vampy series with some great twists.

Star is caught on camera stealing from her boss. He demands immediate payment.These are not men to mess around with, she is innocent but can't prove it.

The answer to her debts turns up offering to pay her debts, rent and even add a large bonus in exchange for 1 months employment.
Star has very little choice but to agree. A contract is written For 30 days Star is to obey her new vampire employer.

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review

This book is about Star and Remy, I really loved how strong Star was the childhood she had was horrible but she grew up with such a strong will and soul, this was so inspiring. Remy is one of the oldest vampires and one of the strongest. The story is Great I don't want to give much away but oh did Star effect Remy like no other Blood Courtesan ever had. There is a great fight scene as well I think that was what FINALLY woke Remy to his true feel

This story wasted no time getting you right into the the amazing characters! The writers are extremely skilled at moving each scene along quickly and keeping you 'ensnared'.
I totally knew certain things were heading for a train wreck yet I couldn't help myself and had to keep reading just to see it happen and how it could be worked out. This is a great read for all you PNR lovers! I have Ben given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Ensnared starts off in a sad way. Star has had a hard life and is at rock bottom. Remy just happens to roll down the window of his car and smell something wonderful, Star. Is it fate or happenstance? But she wants nothing to do with him. Does his ensnaring her in circumstances that ensure she take his offer make him a bad guy? Or just someone that is so powerful they're used to getting their way? Can he and Star be over after a month?

Sweet story of pain, loss, power, and Love.

Entrapment. Star Salazar is broke and desperate for money. Remy de la Lune pays her debt and sets her up as his Blood Courtesan to repay the debt. Disillusioned. It never fails. Dirty tricks always come to light. Read and discover the inexorable attraction between these two and how they reach a resolution! A well-constructed story with interesting characters and plenty of excitement to raise your blood pressure. A fine addition to the Blood Courtesan series!

Star has caught the eye of Remy a Vampire Count and he wants Star badly for a blood Courtesan! Star has no choice but to sign the contract for one month and he'll pay off the guy she supposedly ripped off plus a fifty thousand dollar bonus at the end.
Unfortunately Remy is called back to Paris before the month is up to solve a problem but the problem instead tracks down Star!

Remy has decided that he wants Star and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Its just supposed to be for a month, and Star is hoping she can keep her heart intact.

I have really enjoyed the Blood Courtesan series and Star was one of my favorites. I can't wait to see what else comes out of this world.

He set a black boot on the bottom step and leaned forward. “Why fight it?” “Fight what?” But my heart was thundering so hard I barely heard my own words. “This.” He touched the pulse hammering in the hollow of my throat. His breath caught and he stared fixedly at my neck.” 0 likes
“He inhaled deeply. “This,” he gritted against my skin. “This is what I’ve wanted ever since I first scented you. I just can’t decide where to taste you first. Here?”—he touched my neck with his teeth—“or here?” His fingers slid between my thighs to where I was hot and wet for him.” 0 likes
