Seducing the Vampire by Michelle Hauf

From Goodreads: He was mesmerizing, a vampire like none other...but the fire between Viviane LaMourette and Rhys Hawkes would begin a centuries-long clash between two powerful vampire brothers. 

In Marie Antoinette's Paris, the beautiful vampire Viviane seeks a male patron who will allow her to live on her own terms. Courted by two feuding brothers, Viviane succumb to the handsome rebel, Rhys. She's unaware that Rhys has other, darker, motives. He seeks vengeance against his brother, Constantine—by stealing Viviane and tainting her with his blood. 

But just as Rhys is realizing the depth of his love for Viviane, his brother take his revenge. By casting a spell on the woman they both desire, he condemns her to a living death inside a glass coffin. 

Two centuries later, Rhys hears the urban legend of the Vampire Snow White, imprisoned deep in the tunnels under Paris. He must find her and set her free, but will he be able to save her from the evil still intent on destroying them?

I really enjoyed this book, there was a lot of drama and vampires and werewolves. There were times where I was feeling a little impatient, but it was only because I wanted to see how it ends. I hope I am not giving too much away with my review, but I will say that I think Constantine deserved to be killed or hurt in some way. I cannot imagine being trapped for two centuries, I thought this was too extreme to survive with at least some sanity. Why did it have to be so long? Rhys character is great, he shows honor and a big heart. Viviane's character is strong in her own way, I liked that she wasn't subservient or shy. I was very happy to read that the story will continue with one of the characters, I hope some of the characters in this book make an appearance. 

I give this book 4 owls!
