She took my heart with her

This book received 5 stars for the great story however even though I have the next book waiting to read, I fell in love for the characters and was able to emerge myself into the story. I was one with the characters and in the end my heart was gone as well. I feel that the book itself could have been longer than what it was but overall it was an excellent story.

I want to start by mentioning that i am not so much into Vampire Books but when i start read this book i was bond very fast. This book is written very well so that you can put yourself into the story and actually live this book. The storytelling is well balance between Vampire and erotic. Also it is well chosen that the books come in to Novelettes meaning you can read the book before you go to bed and actually finish it. Marketing vise its a perfect ending because you will have so many questions ...more

4.5 Stars!! Wow...this was over way too quickly for me! I want more...much more! Sebastian is a young, newly turned vampire and this short novella chronicles his early days with his master, Isabela. The sex between them was smokin' hot and I enjoyed the love story...even if they fell in love quickly. It happens...I'm good with that. I would've liked to have seen a little more plot...just so that I know what to look forward to the rest of the series (I know great sex will be there) but what else ...more

This is novelette number one in TL Travis's The Sebastian Chronicles. The Beginning is erotic, paranormal, and really good! It did end too quickly so thank goodness I have number two at the ready!

I don't read a lot of M/F anymore so it was strange getting this in my hands. But it's a great story. Sebastian is a new vampire, just turned. In this book we focus on his beginning and time with Isabela, his master.

Their sex scenes are scorching! It's not mechanical like I so often read these days. It'

Seriously hot, very steamy, and ever so sexy!

I was sucked in before the first chapter was finished, this was an amazing short read, that has left me wondering what could possibly happen in the next instalment of the Sebastian chronicles.
T.L. Travis characters are superbly written, Isabel is a force to be reckoned with,
Sebastian was fantastic, described as a finely chiseled Norse god.
But does Isabel really love Sebastian? Is love really the right word, I need more of Sebastian.

This chronicle follows the story of Sebastian. He is turned by Isabel and she has to teach him all the ways of vampiric life so he stays safe and in the shadows.

The short story ends in a cliff hanger but the next two parts are available right now. If you want a short vampire story then this is for you. One complaint I have is that the couple declared their love and then a page later questioned whether or not they were falling in love with the other.

I'm looking forward to seeing where Sebastian

Sebastian The Beginning by T.L. Travis is a hot short story about Sebastian, who meets a beautiful young woman and is turned vampire. The Story chronicles The Beginning of Sebastian's life as a vampire with Isabel, his maker.

If you are looking for a quick hot read, this is the story for you. Solid 4-star read.

My Thoughts on Book One:
I found it so amusing that Sebastian was the town's heartthrob among the women before he became a vampire. (I can only imagine the poor husbands!) It was also enjoyable how the reader gets to see Sebastian learn about vampiric ways and do basic training in this first installment, setting up essential rules that creatures of the night should follow without getting too complicated or boring with the details. Then seeing Sebastian fall hard for the first time with Isabel (so

Great intro, but left me wondering where the heck Isabel went? Sebastian comes across as this handsome, blonde God looking man that finds himself over heels in love with Isabel, a vamp who changes him. The story does move quickly, yes, but it's look into his past. So I was perfectly alright with just a short book about how Sebastian became a vamp and not a drawn out three hundred page book that could had been very wordy. The story was well written and yes, this one has sex scenes. Heat ones, don ...more

This book had so many relationships in it I found it hard to keep up with. The relationships were hot as hell. The Characters were likeable and diverse in their sexual preferences. The different eras throughout the book were interesting to see the changes. Good narration.

A brief read

This was a sultry, quick read. The ending was a complete cliffhanger which makes me want to get the next one.

Very well done erotica. I enjoyed the budding relationship between these to characters. The sex scenes were very easy to visualize and definitely arousing. Do not read this at work. 😊

New to me author.

Sebastian is a young hot guy who has no quawls with helping the female population out with their needs until he almost meets his death by a disgruntled husband.

Isabel wants Sebastian and decides the time is right to make him hers and she does so without even asking.
