Author: Felicity Heaton
Series: Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance #4
Length: 4000 words / novella

His determination to succeed in business has left no room in his life for love. Now, a beautiful and deadly succubus has teleported into his dark, decadent world and is in danger of enslaving his heart.

Andreu’s future entails opening an erotic theatre like Vampirerotique, gaining wealth, women and power, not shackling himself to a single female, but he cannot deny the dangerously seductive succubus who stirs his anger and passion, and tempts him like no other—he will have her.

The moment their eyes meet, Varya knows she cannot have the exotic dark vampire who sets her pulse racing. His shadowed aura marks him as forbidden, but the hungers he awakens in her are too intense to resist—she must have a taste.

When an erotically-charged kiss ignites their soul-searing passion and reveals something dangerous about Andreu, will Varya leave forever or will she dare to risk all in pursuit of something she thought was beyond her reach?

My Thoughts:
ARC review!

Finally it's out and I can tell you how much I loved this book... or at least I can try.
Enslave is book four in the Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance Series, but it can be read as a stand alone - but really, you don't want to miss out the first three, trust me! 

So, here's our hero, Andreu, Javier's brother, an Elite Vampire. He's all business, he doesn't do romantic stuff. He wants fun and he likes his freedom thank you very much. But there's one woman who sets him on fire, after all she is a succubus, but then again, Andreu has a hell of a willpower. What I really like about his character is that he's not changing all of a sudden because of a woman who just came from nowhere.You know that cliche, when there's a tough guy who is just as much as romantic as a carrot, and then a woman comes in and that guy almost immediately turns into Romeo v2.0. Well, Andreu isn't like that. He takes his time to delevop his feelings for her and to accept them. There were scenes where I hated and would have beat the crap out of him AND loved him at once because of that.

Varya (I freaking love her name!) is a succubus. And we're talking about real succis here. They fuck, they feed, steal their victim's energy and they don't have soft feelings, they can't have those feelings, especially love. But Varya's got bored of this kinda life style, she's doing it basically only for survival and not for pleasure. Men with dark auras - like Andreu -are forbidden to her species. But we, women are just can't resist the temptation of forbidden things (right, Eve?!). Varya is fun to read, because she's a really complex character.

In the previous book I missed the minimal action that we got in the first two books. We didn't get real action in Enslave, but I think we definitely got the same adrenaline rush, we get when we're reading real action scenes. The whole book was so intense, and there were several exciting scenes, sometimes because of some mystery the other time because something dramatic and actually thrilling stuff happened. Speaking of mysteries. There was a few. And there was a twist with one of the major characters, that I rally loved and wouldn't thought of that.

I loved how the side characters were involved in this book. While in the first three books we didn't really see them, the focus was always on the actual main characters, in Enslave, they were real parts of the book. I enjoyed seeing how the major characters of the series worked together to catch Varya, to figure out what she wants and eventually to save her.

Overall: I don't know how she does it, but Felicity continues to deliver books hotter than Hell, and they just keep getting better and better. Enslave is filled with lots of sexual tension, mystery, intrigue and has a thrilling plot. It's oficially my favourite in the series.

I LOVED it, could re read it over and over.
