A Siren Erotic Romance
RECOMMENDED READ, 4 STARS: "Twice Bitten to Paradise is the second book in a series. Unfortunately I had not read book one in the series and I’m thinking it would have probably been better to read book one before book two. However thus goes the life of a reviewer and we don’t always get to read/review in order. Since there are questions left unanswered in this book, that I’m assuming book three will answer, I’m going to say book one probably set up the series or at least set up for this book—book two. Even though I didn’t have the pleasure of reading book one, I did enjoy this book and it’s vivid characters. They held my attention and made me want to read more about them. Ms. St. James does an excellent job of storytelling and world building. It’s a world of vampires, gypsies, good and evil. This book was an erotic read and flowed well. I would recommend adding Twice Bitten to Paradise to your reading list." -- Brandi, The Talent Cave Reviews
4 STARS: "TWICE BITTEN TO PARADISE is the second of the series and continues the interesting take on the author's story of vampires, gypsies and good versus evil. The cast of characters is wonderfully written, varied, fun and interesting as this story continues from the first book. At the end of book one, all hell was breaking loose with Gail in the middle of it. What had started as a wonderful evening at the opening of the new BDSM club, Eternity, turned into a battle between old enemies. The Queen of the Vampires' progeny has been cursed by the Gypsy Luminista, who blames Demetria for not saving her son. As Gail's employee, Bree is at Eternity helping and meets a couple of vampires of her own. She is left with mixed emotions and fear when the gypsy who caused the curse against the vampires, gives her some unwanted information. That Bree is of the gypsy bloodline and is supposed to help Luminista with killing all vampires. Except Bree is falling in love with the two vampires she met in book one, Rafe and Luc. Together, can they defeat Luminista? This story is one of misunderstandings, omissions of truth between Bree and her men. It's also a journey home and a confrontation with the power-hungry mother, who caused Bree to leave home all those years ago. She reunites with her best friend Selena, who loses everything in a fire and moves back with Bree to Connecticut. This is a series that needs to be read in order. Book one sets up the story in book two. And there are unanswered questions in this book that need to be answered in book three, which I hope is Selena's story. TWICE BITTEN TO PARADISE is a well-written story, with characters and story line that hold my attention. It makes me want the next book in the series to be published soon. It was fun to read and I'm looking forward to the next one." Laurie P, The Romance Reviews
Bree was steaming. How did they find me? Fuck. Why did they even look for me? They have lots of explaining to do.
Selena led everyone into the living room. The perfect hostess, she asked if they would like anything. Both Luc and Rafe asked for a cup of black coffee. Bree sat down with them while Selena went to get the coffee.
“What are you two doing here? And how the fuck did you find me?”
“We’re so happy you’re glad to see us.”
“Yeah, well, I don’t know what right you think you have to follow me down here.”
Selena came in with the coffees on a tray and some of the brownies from the night before. She looked at Bree like she had grown a second head. Bree realized she probably had shocked her friend. She had changed a lot over the years. Living on the street had made her a lot harder than the life Selena had lived.
“I’m sorry, Selena.”
“It’s fine, Bree. Would you rather I go run some errands while y’all have this conversation?”
“No, not at all. This is part of the rest of what I need to explain to you anyway. So if you’re up for dealing with all of this, please stay.”
Selena looked at the guys and then back at Bree. Bree watched several emotions cross her face before she took one of the side chairs opposite the sofa where the guys were sitting.
“Go ahead, Brianna. Don’t let me interrupt.”
“As I’m sure you’ve already figured out, these two have come down from Blackstone to find me. I didn’t feel it was anyone’s business, so I didn’t explain why I came down here. In fact, most people from up there, well, all of them, really, don’t have any idea I’m from here.”
“Oh, I see. You’ve been really hiding all of these years, haven’t you?”
Bree nodded. “Yes, I have.” She noted that the guys looked at each other and then Selena. They were probably wondering what she knew that they didn’t. Bree pondered whether they read her mind or had respected her privacy.
“So, Rafe, want to tell us why you’re here?”
He looked uncomfortable for a moment but then shrugged his shoulders. “We’re here because we were worried about you. When we were together the other night we got, umm, closer to you, if you know what I mean. And now we’re able to sense you all the time. We knew you were in trouble here, so we came to help.”
Bree sighed. I was afraid something like this would happen. I should have never had sex with them. “I see.”
Selena looked confused. “I don’t. I feel like I’m missing some inside joke here.”
Bree raised an eyebrow at Rafe. She knew he could hear her thoughts, so she asked if she could share their secret.
“Do you trust her?”
“With my life.”
“Then go ahead. But with each person who finds out that vampires exist, it becomes more dangerous for us. You need to remember that. It affects Gwen now, too.”
“I’m not stupid.” Bree rolled her eyes at him.
Bree turned more toward Selena. “You’re not going to believe this. At least I don’t think you will. But Rafe and Luc aren’t really normal like we are. I found out a week or so ago that vampires really do exist. And now you have two sitting in your living room.” Bree watched Selena’s face. The look of disbelief followed by realization settled on her face.
“No shit. It’s not possible. Not really. Is it?” Selena looked quite taken aback.
Bree choked. Sel never cursed, at least not that she had ever heard. “Wow, you must be shocked, and yes, it is possible.”
“I read romances, Bree. But I never expected any of them to come true.”
“Well, I wouldn’t exactly call vampires romantic. Although I guess these two are.”
Luc smirked at Bree. “Gee, thanks. We didn’t hear you complain the other night.”
Selena turned to stare at the guys. “You are really vampires?”
Rafe nodded. “Yes, we are. But most of what you’ve read is probably untrue. Bree learned that already.”
Bree watched Selena process all of this information. She knew that something was going on with Selena, and she’d hoped that they’d be able to talk about it this morning, but then they had these unexpected and uninvited visitors. I guess our conversation will have to be put on hold for a bit longer.
“Sel, I’m sure you have a lot of questions. But we need to figure out what to do next, and we can talk about vampires later.”
“Sure, no problem. I’ll listen and try not to ask questions. But my mind is going about six million miles an hour now, and I have a ton of questions.”
“We’ll answer any we can,” Luc replied. “Remember, you have no reason to fear us.”
Selena nodded and picked up her coffee cup to take a drink.
Bree turned back to Rafe. “So now what? I suppose you got Gwen all worked up, too?”
“No, you did that one all on your own. I can’t believe you wouldn’t tell her where you went. She’s gotten herself all worked up.”
“I didn’t tell her because…well, no one knew about any of this place, or where I’m from, and I wanted to keep it that way. Now that’s all over with.”
“Why would you want to keep it a secret?”
“You didn’t pick that out of my brain yet?”
“No, we didn’t. We’re trying to respect your privacy, believe it or not. But when you have strong emotions, it hits us hard. There is no ignoring that.”
Bree sighed. This is getting more complicated by the minute. I guess I’m going to have to let them help, or I’ll never get rid of them.
Bree had barely caught her breath before Rafe started on her again. She hadn’t thought it was possible to come so many times or so hard in such a short time. It was as if they knew some switch to turn on to send her over the edge. Bree hadn’t been a virgin for over five years. She had definitely enjoyed many sexual encounters, but nothing had prepared her for being with Luc and Rafe.
Rafe continued to lick and nibble her inner thighs and her pussy. Each time he swiped his hot tongue against her still-quivering clit, her body vibrated. She didn’t know if she could take much more, but it seemed like she was going to find out. She wanted more even though she was tired and spent, and it didn’t seem to matter. Her body had a mind of its own, and it longed for their touch. It was as if they cast a sensual spell over her.
“Rafe, please,” Bree begged. “I want you inside of me.”
Rafe looked up from his ministrations, his face shiny with her juices. “Oh, I don’t think so. I want to eat your sweet pussy a little longer.”
“Oh God. You’re going to be the death of me,” she moaned as her hips undulated against his incessant tongue.
Rafe gave her a big ear-to-ear grin. “I think you’ll survive just fine, little one. But you might be a bit sore tomorrow.”
Luc was lying on her right side, and was tweaking her nipples. It was the perfect pleasure-pain. She watched his long, slender fingers as they played with her breasts, like she was some fine sculpture he was creating.
Rafe was finger-fucking her pussy as he licked and sucked on her clit. She could feel the juices running down to her ass as his finger pumped in and out. Her hips matched his thrusts, but too quickly he stopped, only to slowly slide one finger against her puckered asshole. She squirmed against the unexpected invasion.
Rafe looked up at her as if to ask permission, and she gave him a slight nod. It didn’t matter, really. He would know what she was thinking without her having to say a word. She’d had anal sex only once before. It hadn’t been the best experience, but she would try anything with them. He slowly worked his finger around and into her tiny hole. She tried not to tense up. Luc felt the tension as her body strained against Rafe’s finger. He straddled her chest to distract her with his cock. His dick was already hard again and jutted out from his body. He slid up her chest and rubbed the head against her lips.
“Mmm, yes, baby, like that,” Luc murmured as she slid her tongue over the head. It was the distraction she needed. She took his rigid cock into her mouth. Rafe pushed his finger into her tight asshole. He didn’t move it for a moment as she sucked on Luc’s cock. Her tongue slid over the head of his dick and down the shaft, and then swallowed as much of his throbbing cock as she could take into her mouth. She reached up and massaged his ass and held him captive in her mouth. Her body bucked against the ass-fucking she was getting from Rafe’s finger along with the tongue-lashing he was giving her clit.
Her orgasm was building. She knew it and so did they. She sucked harder on Luc’s cock and tried not to come. She wanted Rafe inside her, whether it was her ass or her pussy, she didn’t care as long as his hard cock was inside when she came. He slid his finger from her tight ass, but before she could complain, he slid his hard cock in its place. His rhythm matched Luc’s as he fucked her mouth with his dick. It was incredible. Both ends of her were filled to the brim with hard cock. She had never felt so full. Every movement caused her body to tremble until she couldn’t hold back. Luc came right before she did, and he pulled out as she cried out. Her entire body tightened as she came. The force of her release drove Rafe over the edge. He shouted out as his hot cum filled her hot, tight ass.
She wasn’t sure when Luc had moved behind her, but now she was leaning against his chest. He kneaded and massaged her neck and shoulders, working the muscles which were bound to be sore in the morning. Rafe pulled out and stretched out on her left side. He gave her a shit-eating grin and a whack across her thigh. Then he got up and left the room through a side door. He was back a moment later with a washcloth and a couple of towels. First he cleaned her gently with the warm cloth and then dried her thoroughly. He tossed a towel to Luc and then went back into what she presumed was the bathroom.
Luc leaned down and kissed her forehead. “Are you okay, Bree? We weren’t too hard on you, were we?”
Bree smiled up at him. “No, not at all. That was the most amazing fuck of my life.”
Rafe returned in time to hear her reply. “That’s great, because we’re not done yet.”
Holy shit. Really, we’re not done? She could already feel her muscles telling her they hadn’t been used like this in a long time. What was left for them to do?
“We are going to take you at the same time.”
