Seduced in Shadow is the second book in Stephanie Julian’s Magical Seduction series. Fiorella has grown up with the ability to talk to animals, but when Antonin shows up and admits to her that he is a linchetto that was sent by her brother to keep her safe, Fiorella has a tough time accepting it. She learns about a whole world that she never knew existed and finds out that there were secrets in her past. Who knew her father was a god? Due to that little fact, she is in danger, and Antonin will do whatever he has to in order to keep her safe.
I give this book three tombstones. Stephanie Julian does an excellent job of developing the romance between Antonin and Fiorella. The storyline that began in the first book, Seduced By Magic, is continued through this book. Fiorella’s brother and father make an appearance in the book, but the story is almost fully wrapped around Antonin and Fiorella’s relationship. While I enjoy a book with good sex scenes, there were more than the usual amount in this book and the plot seems almost secondary. Ms. Julian does a good job of developing her characters and leaves the plot open for future books. I am looking forward to seeing where the third book in the series, Seduced and Ensnared goes. If you enjoy fae and a sensual romance, you will enjoy this book.
