After Lucy’s boyfriend left her, she refused to leave the house. She stayed in her room, drowning in her own misery, avoiding men and the human race on the whole. Then she was dragged out of bed by her best friend, Kate. She was given a dress, some makeup and told to buck-up her ideas and join her friend for a night on the town.
Lucy did just that, but on her way to the club something took over her. She ended up going somewhere she had never been before, ducking through the shadows to discover an ethereal building that seemed to have appeared from nothing. The strange building, with a buzzing sign and an alluring name, scared Kate away, but it enticed Lucy. She had to go inside, she had to see what secrets it held.
But once Lucy stepped inside the club, she regretted leaving the house and she regretted leaving her friend. Lucy’s life was going to take a drastic and terrifying turn, and she would soon wish that she had stayed in bed.
Seduced by Shadows is the first book in a new series by paranormal romance author Avril Jayne Rivers. The series, Seventh, explores sexuality, lust, longing and what it’s like when you’re overcome by desire for something inhuman. Seventh is a combination of vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters and more; it is all of the darkness, desire and allure that these beasts have over us, and all of the mystery that they instil in us.
