Leopold is a very old vampire, and he oozes old-world charm and style. His suave, sophisticated style will hook you. He is joined in this latest book by Dimitri who we also met in an earlier book. They’re an odd couple given that Dimitri is a wolf. Both creatures find Laryssa Theriot easy on the eyes which makes things interesting when the three of them, along with most of the leads from the prior books join forces to protect a very special, orphaned baby from an evil, dark spirit. Laryssa may be the key to the mystery of the baby since she can sense the baby’s power and the coming evil.
Leopold uses his charms and alpha-male tendencies to win over Laryssa, and he uses his lethal, honed vampiric skills to keep her safe.
True to her style, Kym Grosso has written another sure-to-be-a -hit paranormal romance. This is a definite one-click purchase! Read the whole series to get to know the characters and their history together for the best experience, but it is not absolutely necessary to do so in order to enjoy this good read.
This book is intended for adult readers only.
>Leopold is furious when he finds a werewolf pup dying in the snow at Yellowstone. After getting her to safety he calls on the local Alpha to find out who would allow this to happen to an innocent. He discovers the baby is much more than a wolf. Now he must find a similar being to help little Ava. Even as an ancient vampire he has never met another with similar powers.
Laryssa has been hiding what she is for most of her life, but recently she has felt the dark ones are close to finding her. She needs to meet a friend who is a witch to build up her defences again.
While Laryssa is waiting in the club for her friend, Leopold walks in and upsets her concentration. Later in the evening trouble breaks out in the club. The owner , who Leopold is visiting tells him to watch the security tape. What he sees is exactly the powers he is searching for. Now he just has to persuade her to help him.Leopold is used to getting his own way ALL the time, why is this terrified little woman so unafraid of him.
I loved this story ,it's the best in the series so far. A very naughty sexy read for adults only. As usual KYM manages to write really erotic scenes without being the slightest bit crude. The fight scenes are intense and scary. The world Leopold inhabits is not for the feint hearted. Once again in this book we meet some old friends especially Dimitri. I can't wait for his story he is so mischievious.
LEOPOLD’S WICKED EMBRACE is the fifth instalment in Kym Grosso’s contemporary, adult, erotic Immortals of New Orleans paranormal romance series. This is ancient vampire Leopold Devereoux and Laryssa Theriot’s storyline. Leopold has been a fixture in the Immortals of New Orleans series since the first book and the ancient vampire will finally get his story.
The premise focuses on a foundling baby-part wolf, part something else. Discovered by Leopold, the powerful vampire knows there is something different about this child. Leaving baby Ava with Logan (alpha wolf) and Kade, Leopold goes in search of the only person who may be able to tell him who and what she is.
Enter Laryssa Theriot-an antiques dealer and the woman who calls to Leopold’s soul. As the couple begins their search for any information that may lead to Ava’s identity, Laryssa will be confronted by the evil that has followed her all of her life. The evil wants something from Laryssa and the baby is the bargaining chip used to pull Laryssa into the demands.
The relationship between Leopold and Laryssa is sensual, seductive and a little bit wicked. As an ancient, Leopold is believed to be the oldest and most powerful of his kind but with it comes heartache and memories of everything that he lost in the past. Denying his attraction to Laryssa only amplifies his need and in the end he will lose his heart and his soul to the spirited woman with unusual powers.
Kym Grosso has written an engaging, compelling and passionate storyline where an ancient vampire has been given a second chance at love. The world building continues throughout the series with the inclusion of many of the former storyline characters that gives Leopold’s story a sense of the familiar. We get an intimate look at the ancient vampire’s protective nature; the allure of family; and a love that he never thought would happen (again).
I was gifted a copy
And can i say, i LOVE this series, and this follows it perfectly. The same style of writing, continuous storylines including couples from previous books, and a great way to see the many layers that Leo has.
We ended the last book, wondering whether Leo was on the side of good, or the sad of the dark....this book clarifies that he is very much one of the good guys!
The book actually opens with Leo holding the local Alpha, Hunter, against the wall snarling that he left a cub in the woods to die. Luckily Dimitri (Logan's Beta) is around to diffuse the matter before one of them ended up dead (which, on a side note, look forward to Dimitri's book - hes in this one a lot, so expect this to be next - yay!).
As it turns out, Hunter had no idea. Said cub was now in the arms of Logan and his mate.
On his hunt for the killer, he finds himself coming to Laryssa for aid.....and realising shes something special. She is. But shes petrified of revealing her true self.
One thing we do learn is a demon believes her soul belongs to him. it doesnt, but that doesnt stop him threatening to kill her if she doesnt bring him an ancient relic. Apparently only Layrssa can find it - being what she is.
Her relationship with Leo unravels well. His actions speak a lot louder than words, even when protesting he has no intention of "settling down" with any single woman.
He thinks he deserves to live a life alone, he believes he has a dark soul and has always kept to the sidelines of all varieties of society.
Laryssa however, doesnt see that. She sees a kind and caring MAN, and makes it her task to make him see that too.Read more ›
