About the Author
Jennifer Turner lives in Bowling Green, Ohio, with her husband, nine year old daughter and one fish. She regularly claims one of the aforementioned takes far more work than the others to maintain - but she won't share which one. She's the middle child between two brothers, the favorite child of her parents. Of course, that's always subject to opinion. She currently has the first three books of the Darkness Within series completed and is working on the fourth.

However, I did like a couple of the Black Dagger Brotherhood novels and I must say this book comes very very close to being just as good. I was shocked at how much it held my attention. I read it pretty much in one sitting.
It's well written, the world building aspects were extremely well done and not totally overblown like in some paranormals I've read and all of the characters (except for Trinity - I didn't trust her from the very beginning) were extremely engaging. It's cohesive and it flows. There's no "filler" or odd happenings that end up going nowhere.
Here's another shocker: I liked this enough to buy the next one. If it's even almost as good as this one, it'll be well worth the money.
I read a lot and don't normally do too many book reviews as I find them more on the subjective side rather than objective but I found this one to be on the high side of this genre and it's one I'd tell my friends and family to read if they are looking for an outstanding paranormal.
I highly recommend this book and I've put this author on my list of author's to keep an eye on.
I loved it. I loved Logan, the heroine-addicted street waif with a jaded view of life and utterly disconnected with humanity. I loved her decidedly broken moral compass and her blase attitude coupled with a steely sense of responsibility for her actions and choices, however unsympathetic those may be. I loved that for as flawed and damaged a character as she was, she still had an intensity of personality that was as compelling to me as it was to Kerestyan. And I just flat-out adored Lord Kerestyan, the Ancient vampire who has spent at least the last several...several years in a sort of emotional ennui even as he rules the city of New York, watching out for the fledglings and keeping the Veil intact. When he stumbles onto Logan, a human aware of the existence of vampires, instead of killing her, he abducts her and gives her a choice. Live or die. The complexities of that simple-sounding choice have the power to change Logan and Kerestyan in ways they may not be able to comprehend.
With a totally unique vampire/werewolf/Paladin/Celestial mythos that I found to be astoundingly complete, original, and remarkably well defined (even for it being the Cliffs Notes version), a stubborn street waif that seemed fiercely determined to make her own way in the world regardless of cost or destination - and at times despite them, a sexy Ancient vampire that falls for said stubborn street waif with endearing alacrity, the ensuing romance that was enchantingly realistic given the character development of each of them, and a fascinating (and at times hilarious), well-developed stable of secondary and ancillary characters, Eternal Seduction has managed to reaffirm my rabid lust for dark vampire/paranormal romance. And the plot was very well paced with an enthralling mix of humor, tragedy, danger, and sheer grit, too. There just isn't anything I can say that's even remotely critical about any aspect of Eternal Seduction.
I suppose I could complain that the second book, Eternal Hearts, isn't available yet. That's a major downer. On the bright side, according to Jennifer Turner's Twitter page, it's in a final proofreading phase (whatever that means). It sounds a heck of a lot better than "it's not even finished being written yet," so I won't complain...too much. Beyond that, absolutely a five star read for Eternal Seduction, and one of my top two favorite reads of 2010 to date.
