Sadly Jacqui Frank's writing has gone decidedly downhill over the past few years and Seduce Me in Flames is a clear example of this.

This is a book that simply doesn't know what it's trying to say. It's part Fantasy, part Science Fiction with a little dash of Space Opera thrown in. It has a mythical middle eastern flavour with harems and would-be-pashas and yet the society is supposed to be technologically advanced.

However the most annoying parts are the larger than life alpha hero and the beaut

I just finished Seduce Me in Dreams where I was introduced to the Three Worlds series and the Interplanetary Militia and Rush Ender Blakely's team.

Ambrea Vas Allay is a daughter of the Emperor of Allay but has spent most of her life in prison. She has a younger immature brother who is placed on the throne via political intrigue of an uncle, and she is summoned to be banished from Allay and renounce her claim on the throne. She refuses and returns to prison.

I’d been thinking, after reading and reviewing the first book in this series, that while I like it all so far, I’m not going to enjoy it as much as I do the Shadowdwellers series. But this newest book is changing my mind about that. It’s the world of the Shadowdwellers, the use of dreams, along with the characters that make that series so fascinating to me. In this series it’s the characters and their abilities that keep me reading till the early hours of the morning.

OMG that book was HOTT (no pun intended). As a return to a strange world where anything can happen this was definitely another great book by Jackie Frank. I have read all her series and i can already see myself hooked on this one for years. Only downside is the time between stories that leaves you dying for more. Definitly worth every second of time to read!!

This book was even better than the first! Jacquelyn Frank is an extremely talented author. This novel was full of suspense and an intricate story based around love, ambition, forbidden desires and secrets while in the midst of a political upheaval. Brilliant. Absolutely brilliant!

Why is Lasher not the hero of this one? In fact, what even happened to Lasher, Bronse's second in command and best friend?

Man this was way longer then it needed to be, meaning Frank used so many words. Her editor should have been tougher. This wasn't boring by any means. It was just slow, and I think that she should have used more finesse in how she showed emotions and motivations. Everything felt spelled out. Nevertheless, this was a good read.

I liked Rush and Ambrea's story better. This was definitely a funnier book - or at least the interaction between the main characters had better moments. I recommend this story. I know have to hunt down the third book in the series, though. I have to follow up on some of the characters in the first book!

I love the paranormal works of Jacquelyn Frank. The story of the empires and the Interplanetary Militia keeps the listener's attention to the very end. The story is great and the narrator does an excellent job with the characters and the story.

I would have rated this book much higher had it not felt so rushed. From the moment the characters are introduced information and action packed events are thrown at you, leaving you very little time to connect with the characters.

And even though i DID eventually connect and sympathize with said characters it took much longer and even then it was probably already because i was biased towards the book to begin with. The premise was really good and the story was intriguing so i let a lot of things

This book took me by surprise. First, it doesn't really follow in the storyline of book 1 that much; yes it could pretty much be read as a standalone. Second, we don't the see much of the Chosen, which were a big part of the first book.

Rush "Ender" is HOT! I mean, literally. He's kept quiet about his mysterious power of burning this, his body overheats, he causes fires, he burns things and people. He's lived his whole life isolated because of th

Who doesn’t like a tragic hero story??? This book has it in spades. We have the hero, Rush, who is hiding a deep, dark secret from his team. We met that team in Seduce Me in Dreams and they essentially his family. Rush’s secret is that he is pyrokinectic which means that he can burst things into flames and he can’t control his power. Like all tragic heroes, he tries to just not use this talent which is why when he gets very emotional – POOF – his talent surfaces and has a tendency to explode the ...more

This fantasy romance is a part of the "Three Worlds" novel series by Jacquelyn Frank. This is the first I've read in the series, but not sure whether it is actually book #1? However, I completely understood everything, so I do not think it matters which order they are read.

This particular book is the story of Ambrea Vas Allay (heiress to the throne) and Rush "Ender" Blakely (warrior extraordinaire from another planet). This heroine is noble not only by birth, but by right. She repeatedly earns

This was a really good story and in fact I came out of it liking it much more than I thought I would. I’m a fan of Jacquelyn Frank and she’s on my must buy list but this book shot up to one of my favorites by her. I think it’s because it covered a number of my secret book pleasures.

Ambrea Vas Alley is a member of the royal family and is in fact the direct heir to the throne but has lost favor with the king when her mother was accused of being a traitor. When Ambrea’s father dies and her younger

I am always amazed at Franks imagination. Over and over she creates new worlds for her series. This is the second in the Three Worlds series, and not really my favorite. I was not sucked into it like the first. I did like it. I love Rush and Ambrea. But the back story of the Allay society dragged for me and I found myself skimming parts of the book with no dialogue towards the end. At first, I was anxious to get to the action I knew was coming. And Rush "Ender" was a character that intrigued me ...more

This one takes place 2 years I think, after the previous, and no; she didn't answer the question why someone was trying to kill Bronse in that one.

While these were the first two of a promised series, it was dropped after this with the vague "series on hold indefinitely" thing.

Virgin hero alert.

The hero has the same problem the 7th brother in the Sons of Destiny has - he burns things when he gets out of control. The difference - why this gets a 4 when that one almost got a DNF - is this hero is a

Book 1 was a funny and entertaining read... but this one? OMG! Completely took me by surprise and blew my mind away. I never thought it would be this good!

Amazing characters and an excellent plot based on a highly appealing world building. I loved how original this story was, how different from everything else I have been reading lately.

Since the age of 4, when she was ripped from her mother’s arms and the pampered life of a royal princess, Ambrea Vas Allay was never sure whether her father the Emperor would pick today as the day to end her existence. When she is called to the palace for a royal audience, she is unsure what to expect, but it was not to find out her father had died and that her adolescent half brother is now the Emperor. Thrown in prison for her refusal to sign away her name and all claims to the thrown, her in ...more

I would like to preface this with; I have been a dedicated fan of Jacquelyn Frank for the past 5 years. That being said, I am having a hard time connecting with any of her recent books. I find myself skimming and growing bored. It feels like she doesn't have a clear path when writing new books and is just trying out new concepts. It doesn't feel like she is dedicated to the characters or the stories. She will write a couple books (or just stand alone titles)for a series and then move on. This se ...more

as a fan of Mrs Frank's Nightwalker series I had to read her other works. I believe she has out did herself once again. This was a great book. Some of her work reminds me of fairy tales. Like Stealing Kathryn reminded me of Beauty and the Beast. This book reminded me of Rapunzel. Long haired beauty trapped away in a dungeon. Saved by the handsome hunter. So she can claim the title that is rightfully hers. Fairy tales are beautiful stories that can be told in every generation. I love how she can ...more

This is an adventure from the first page. It takes you along with Ambrea, "Ender" and the Interplanetary Militia while they are trying to restore Ambrea to her rightful place on the throne of Allay.
Ambrea Vas Allay has been exiled by her father for many years, but upon his death and the ddeath of her brother the throne rightfully belongs to Ambrea. Her fathers brother seems to have other ideas about who should rule.

Not a bad follow up to a book I thought was mediocre at best. In fact, this sequel was good enough that I'm looking forward to the next in the series. Here's hoping that Frank only gets better with time and practice! She still has problems with having too many narrative characters, but that didn't come into play as much this time around since there seemed to be fewer characters overall. Ender was a better hero than any other of Frank's I've read so far. He balanced perfectly between understandin ...more
