Review: Léopold’s Wicked Embrace (Immortals of New Orleans #5) by Kym Grosso

An erotic paranormal romance...

Seductive and lethal vampire, Léopold Devereoux, returns to the Big Easy to find a killer. His search leads him to a beautiful and mysterious woman, who awakens desires and emotions that he’s long fought to keep buried. After centuries of self-imposed solitude, the billionaire philanthropist struggles to restrain his growing thirst for the intriguing, lovely female who’s captured his attention.

Laryssa Theriot, an antiques proprietor in the Vieux Carré, agrees to help the commanding yet debonair stranger, who seeks her assistance. She withholds her secret abilities, afraid to trust the man who threatens to unleash her darkest fantasies. All the while, Léopold consumes her thoughts, testing her limits and bringing her to new levels of ecstasy. As the menacing force that has stalked Laryssa for years finally catches up to her, she submits, putting her life into the hands of the dominant vampire who offers his protection.

Deep in the heart of New Orleans, they embark on a perilous adventure, forced to search for an ancient sacrificial relic that they hope will save their lives. As they face formidable challenges, Léopold and Laryssa surrender to the passionate intimacy that possesses them. After hundreds of years of denying himself love, will Léopold bond to the woman who has begun to crack the impenetrable shell around his heart? As evil draws near, will Laryssa survive the demon that has come to take her soul?

Warning: This book contains several erotic love scenes and is intended for adult readers only.

Léopold’s Wicked Embrace is a fabulously entry into the Immortals of New Orleans series. Vamps, action, danger and some old friends make this exciting book my favorite. I know I say every time that this book is my favorite but Ms. Grosso has written probably the best PNR series I have read this year.

I original said the best part of this series was the wolves. I think I’m switching sides. Leo, Leo, Leo…you are one bad boy. Wickedly delicious this vamp has got to be the hottest one in the bunch. Léopold is delicious and sexually mischievous especially when it comes to Laryssa. He’s held himself back emotionally for centuries but as his sad back-story is revealed I was able to better understand his motives. He has a animalistic side (in and out of the bedroom) that makes him all man. Laryssa is full of secrets as well. Which, of course, Léopold just has to discover – one of them being she has a naughty submissive side. Whether it’s spanking or knocking on her back-door, he has no problem bringing it out in her…even if they are not alone! (Hint-Hint).

This story isn’t all about the sex. There’s a mystery afoot and a sinister being that they need to tackle. Who better equipped to help them but some old friend from the previous books. YAY! I love when that happens. There’s also some exciting new friends that I’ve taken a big shining to. Particularly the big bad (more naughty than bad) wolf, Dimitri. I got to say half way through the book I was hoping he would get his own story. BTW…make sure to read the Epilogue at the end so you can gasp and squeal like I did.

I’d like to say I devoured this book in one sitting but right around 2am I conked out so it did take me two days to finish it. Despite falling asleep, Léopold’s Wicked Embrace is quite the page turner. My BBF’s and I love sitting around talking about the latest from Kym Grosso. I can’t wait to chat up this book. Does everything work out all right in the end? Who gets Ava? Does Sydney make it? So many questions to answer in this awesome book. You are going to love it. Get it and all the other in the series and start reading them now.
