Many multi-cultural books are cliche’ and use a lot of slang and stereotypical behavior to make up for the lack of plot. Happily this was not the case with Seducing the Jackal. This book was a welcome surprise. I love mythology and history. The author used both to create a well-written action packed multi-cultural romance. Egyptian mythology hasn’t been used enough as a wonderful tapestry for paranormal and multi-cultural romance. I was glad Glass took the challenge and made that particular mythology brand such an integral part of Tina and Markus’s story.
When Tia, the heroine and a member of the Daughter of Isis coven, is kidnapped she expects her captor to be a brute. However she’s surprised to find that her captor Markus, is devastatingly handsome, intelligent and the leader of Sons of Anubis. The chemistry between these two is amazingly explosive! The author does a great job of making it seem natural and not rushed. The conflict between The Sons of Anubis and The Daughters of Isis adds to the problems they face and has the potential to end their budding romance before it actually begins.
I recommend this book and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it- the plot, the hero/the heroine (and the supporting characters), and the story’s foundation. Tia and Markus are honorable characters whose powers weren’t overzealous. They are great together (in bed and out). In summary this was a sexy, easy read that will leave readers fully satisfied. I’m excited that this book is part of a series and can’t wait to read the next story.

Laurel Cremant is an opinionated author and reader of romance with a wicked sense of humor. RNIC was smart (or crazy) to bring her on as a blogger. In 2016 she took over the management of this site and relishes her new title of “Overlord of Awesome”
