Portrait of Seduction by Madison Chase
Cobblestone Press
Erotic Vampire
ISBN: 978-1-60088-062-9
Reviewed by Talia Ricci
 

Carter Vaggio is a famous portrait painter as well as a vampire.  Hired by Victoria Aragon’s grandmother, Carter figures she will be another high society empty-headed model.  Meeting her changes his opinion and Carter finds himself slowly falling under the spell that is Victoria.  Like a slow, quiet breeze, she comforts him and he finds that he wants the ultimate¾her love.

Victoria Aragon is biding her time until she can access her trust fund without having to deal with her mean and hateful grandmother.  When she is told to go to have her portrait painted, Victoria is happy for the time away from the hell that is her home life.  She doesn’t count on wanting to seduce the painter nor does she count on the fact that he is not quite human.

Portrait of Seduction was a spectacular read.  I loved how Madison Chase slowly let Victoria’s presence invade Carter’s home and wrap her desire around him.  Since he is a vampire, I understand Victoria’s dismay and often inability to believe in the supernatural.  However, once she decided that she loved Carter, the rest was all gravy.

If you love vampire tales, then Portrait of Seduction is a must read.  I find myself shying away from vampires at times but I am so glad that I didn’t do that with Portrait of Seduction.  This is one vampire book headed to the keeper shelf!
