I was introduced to the wonderful Stephanie Julian by a group on Goodreads and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style. She has created such an intriguing world that sucks you in the instant you start reading.
Justin Johannson knows there are mythical creatures living among us. After all, he has been trying to prove their existence for ten years. Research gets a whole lot more interesting when he finds a winged woman in his bed and his sexual fantasies come to life.
Etruscan folletta Scarlata is convinced Justin is in league with an evil businessman bent on capturing her for scientific study, which is so not going to happen. She decides that Justin needs to be taught a lesson to leave her and the rest of the mythical creatures in peace — but before, she might just have a little fun of her own.
The beautiful folletta never expected to fall for a human and Justin is about to discover that true magic really does exist in the world. And in him.
Seduced by Magic by Stephanie Julian was really creative and it sucked me in, making it so I didn’t want to stop reading. I loved the way the two characters progressed, even though it was a tad bit rushed for my taste, since it was a very short read.
I also loved the way Stephanie writes, how she describes things in detail and her sex scenes are really amazing because of this. However, that said there was not enough storyline in comparison to the sex. This would be good for those who like that sort of thing, but I need more than sex to like a story. I picked up Seduced by Magic knowing what it was but I definitely didn’t expect so much of it to overshadow the actual story. So I was highly disappointed in that because I really loved her story about the fairy world. I got caught up in it and wanted more, but the sex just kept getting in the way for me. (again they were awesome scenes!).
The book is only 124 pages, which is really SMALL for a book that costs $5.00. I did not pay attention to this when I purchased it as I was excited to read some of her work. But I don’t think I will pay that much for a book (ebook or otherwise) that is that small again. Being such a short book, by the time I really got into the story it was over!
Even though there wasn’t much of a plot, I still adored Stephanie Julian’s writing. The characters were entrancing enough that I would gladly pick up another story by her. I would definitely recommend picking up a different novel if you found one at your library. With just being over 100 pages, Seduced by Magic is a little pricey, but I am glad that I got to experience a new author and will be looking out for more of her stories in the future.
