Rousseau Manor has a sinister, bloody history filled with
debauchery. It doesn’t keep Saphira Morgan from visiting
the manor. Someone has been sending her pictures of her
husband, Ransom, with another woman. His betrayal is
tearing her apart, so she finds solace in painting the
faeries depicted on the walls of the abandoned house.
When the manor reveals its wicked secrets, Saphira finds
herself in a place ruled by magic and pleasure. The lines
between pleasure and pain are blurred in her journey.
Strange creatures, depraved satyrs, and gorgeous faeries set
the stage for lust, betrayal, and deviant desires. Saphira
submits until discovery erupts into self-knowledge. Only
then can she save herself and everything she cares about.
Raquel Taylor has created a picturesque novella bursting at
the seams with brilliant and rich descriptions that erupt
behind your eyelids. The faeries are as decadent and
sadistic as they are beautiful. In the beginning, I wasn’t
certain who the real villains of the story were, until
elements of the plot were uncovered. Not a bad touch at
all. Fascinating tidbits from faerie myths and legends are
liberally utilized throughout and it kept me engaged. The
author makes it all fit in between the large masses of sex
that sweeps across the entire story with tidal wave effect.
This doesn’t leave a lot of room for much character
development, although there is some.
Seduction of the Fae is a visual feast laden
with carnality. At times I felt a little overwhelmed by
it all, but I was drawn in so deep by the passion of Ms.
Taylor’s writing, I held on with both hands until the end,
anxious to see how she would bring salvation to Saphira and
Ransom. Despite a few clichés here and there, everything
is done with such style and creativity that I’m forced to
tell anyone curious to read it that this is the kind of book
that you should experience firsthand to draw your own
conclusion. I can guarantee that you won’t be bored or
disappointed. The best word I could use would be mesmerized
if the faeries don’t seduce you first.
