Audiobook Review: Tempted by a Vampire (Immortal Hearts of San Francisco, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tempted by a Vampire by Susan Griscom

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cian DeMarco is a talented musician–and a vampire. He’s content living the single life in San Francisco, playing with his band at Club Royal each weekend…until he meets a human woman he can’t resist. The scent of Magdalena’s blood has him completely undone, and he begins to question his felicitous existence when his desire for her grows out of control.


Magdalena De la Rosa and her best friend recently moved to San Francisco. She’s started a new job and is living in a gorgeous apartment. Everything is just the way she’s imagined… until she ends up at an up-scale nightclub and is suddenly swept off her feet by the sexy as sin lead singer of the house band.


A temptation they can’t resist leads to a future they never imagined as passion sizzles between the two until a threat from Cian’s past returns to wreak havoc on their lives.


Will their love outweigh the reality of what Cian must do to keep Magdalena safe?

The heroine: Magdalena – recently broke up with her boyfriend Kellen after finding him in bed with someone else. She moved to San Francisco with her best friend Vanessa and got a new job as a crime reporter.

The Hero(s): Cian – a 200 year old vampire. Cian, his twin brother Lane and their band-mates are all vampires and they don’t kill to survive. They live in a mansion together and own a night club where they play their music on the weekends.

The Story: Cian sees Maggie through the window while she and Vanessa are out to dinner on their first night in town. He notices her later in line to get in his club. He is taken with her like he has never been before.

This was a pretty standard vampire romance. Vampires are immortal aside from decapitation or fire, they can’t go out in the sun without draining their energy, mirrors don’t work, and they can turn another person by giving them vampire blood at the time of death.

Cian remembers rumors of vampires that meet their soul mate and believes that Magdalena is his. He romances her. However there are roadblocks that surface in the form of her ex boyfriend Kellen who won’t seem to give up and more. Things come to a head when Maggie finds out what Cian is.

I liked the narration on this one. John York had a perfect British accent for Kian and Julie Walters did a great job as Magdalena.
