Léopold's Wicked Embrace

Immortals of New Orleans, #5

Léopold's Wicked Embrace is an awesome and amazing read! I just finished reading it and I must say I loved it just as much as the other Immortals of New Orleans books. Kym Grosso has done it again with another very thrilling, passionate, and very sexy fast paced paranormal romance. The writing was flawless. The emotions of the characters in the book were intense and the romance was erotic and skillfully written.

Leopold is one very sexy and hot Alpha Vampire. He is a character anyone who loves the genre could positively fall in lust or love with. Yum, Yum, Yum! He is very confident and takes what he wants when he wants it. He is an old vampire with lots of power and he uses his powers in the most delicious ways imaginable. He is searching for a killer and surprises himself and finds Laryssa.

Laryssa is no shrinking violet herself. Even though she is in hiding, she is very feisty. With her own mysterious past and what she is trying to hide from, I found her a very intriguing character. With her life in danger she must find help and what she finds is Leopold.

Leopold and Laryssa have this amazing chemistry and the scenes between the two are nothing short of wicked! I loved the internal battles these two faced in order to come together. No Vanilla sex here and their internal emotional battles are as complex as the characters themselves.

I highly recommend this series to those who love a paranormal romance that is a bit on the naughty side. I love how there are different paranormal species in this series, Vampires, Were's, Witches and another species which I will not name as it would be a spoiler. You will have to read the book to discover this for yourself.

I enjoyed that previous characters from her other books are very involved in the story. This book did not skimp when it came to intimacy and was an exceptional erotic read. It had the right amount of romantic build-up, heat and suspense. It offers readers a comprehensive storyline and complex and endearing characters. Léopold's Wicked Embrace is a passionate and emotionally engaging roller coaster ride from start to finish, one I didn't want to get off! I love the Immortals of New Orleans series and can't wait to read the next book.
