Product Description

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Kym Grosso 


An erotic paranormal romance...

Seductive and lethal vampire, Léopold Devereoux, returns to the Big Easy to find a killer. His search leads him to a beautiful and mysterious woman, who awakens desires and emotions that he's long fought to keep buried. After centuries of self-imposed solitude, the billionaire philanthropist struggles to restrain his growing thirst for the intriguing, lovely female who's captured his attention.

Laryssa Theriot, an antiques proprietor in the Vieux Carré, agrees to help the commanding yet debonair stranger, who seeks her assistance. She withholds her secret abilities, afraid to trust the man who threatens to unleash her darkest fantasies. All the while, Léopold consumes her thoughts, testing her limits and bringing her to new levels of ecstasy. As the menacing force that has stalked Laryssa for years finally catches up to her, she submits, putting her life into the hands of the dominant vampire who offers his protection.

Deep in the heart of New Orleans, they embark on a perilous adventure, forced to search for an ancient sacrificial relic that they hope will save their lives. As they face formidable challenges, Léopold and Laryssa surrender to the passionate intimacy that possesses them. After hundreds of years of denying himself love, will Léopold bond to the woman who has begun to crack the impenetrable shell around his heart? As evil draws near, will Laryssa survive the demon that has come to take her soul?

Warning: This book contains several erotic love scenes and is intended for adult readers only.

LEOPOLD’S WICKED EMBRACE is the fifth instalment in Kym Grosso’s contemporary, adult, erotic Immortals of New Orleans paranormal romance series. This is ancient vampire Leopold Devereoux and Laryssa Theriot’s storyline. Leopold has been a fixture in the Immortals of New Orleans series since the first book and the ancient vampire will finally get his story.

The premise focuses on a foundling baby-part wolf, part something else. Discovered by Leopold, the powerful vampire knows there is something different about this child. Leaving baby Ava with Logan (alpha wolf) and Kade, Leopold goes in search of the only person who may be able to tell him who and what she is.

Enter Laryssa Theriot-an antiques dealer and the woman who calls to Leopold’s soul. As the couple begins their search for any information that may lead to Ava’s identity, Laryssa will be confronted by the evil that has followed her all of her life. The evil wants something from Laryssa and the baby is the bargaining chip used to pull Laryssa into the demands.

The relationship between Leopold and Laryssa is sensual, seductive and a little bit wicked. As an ancient, Leopold is believed to be the oldest and most powerful of his kind but with it comes heartache and memories of everything that he lost in the past. Denying his attraction to Laryssa only amplifies his need and in the end he will lose his heart and his soul to the spirited woman with unusual powers.

Kym Grosso has written an engaging, compelling and passionate storyline where an ancient vampire has been given a second chance at love. The world building continues throughout the series with the inclusion of many of the former storyline characters that gives Leopold’s story a sense of the familiar. We get an intimate look at the ancient vampire’s protective nature; the allure of family; and a love that he never thought would happen (again).

HASH(0x9cf93e1c) out of 5 stars Been waiting for Leopold! April 5 2014
By kph - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kym Grosso’s Immortals of New Orleans continues with Leopold’s Wicked Embrace. As a fan of the series, I’ve read all four previous books. Each delves into the life of a particular supernatural. Kym’s covered her bases with this series, vampires, werewolves, witches, and naiads. Leopold’s Wicked Embrace can be read as a standalone book. There is enough background given that you won’t be totally in the dark, but it may be enough to make you want to read the rest of the series.
Leopold is an ancient vampire. He sired Kade (of Kade’s Dark Embrace, book 1). He’s had a role in several of the series. It was good to finally get to know more about this debonair vampire. He is focused on one thing as this story opens, saving an innocent baby. His cold heart is warmed by a little baby. Ava starts the cracks, into the walls surrounding the ancient vampire’s long dead heart.
Keeping Ava safe leads Leopold into Laryssa’s life. Laryssa wants nothing but to remain anonymous, hidden, and safe from the demon out to get her. It just so happens, the demon after Ava has laid claim to Laryssa’s soul as well.
Leopold will do anything to keep Ava and Laryssa safe from the demon and more importantly safe from him. Some of the best conflict comes from the internal battles Leopold and Laryssa have in determining how to deal with their building attraction.
Laryssa and Leopold work through their own insecurities, their own personal demons. From time to time, I didn’t know if they would pull everything together. It was like they were always more concerned about the other person, protecting each other from themselves. That unselfish nature wasn’t expected from Leopold, but those walls were cracking.
All in all, a very enjoyable weekend of reading!

AMAZING!!! Every book I read in this series just gets better and better! In this story we get to know sexy vampire Leopold better and a new character Laryssa. We also get more Dimitri that hot Cajun werewolf beta of the Acadian wolves. This book is just full of action, sex, mysteries, kinky sex, gorgeous supes, romantic sex, romance... Absolutely an amazing read, there were laugh out loud moments, there were teary moments, there were edge of your seat moments and there was a NOOOOO moment! I was surprised at the end, something that doesn't happen very often. Highly recommend this book!

HASH(0x9cf4a888) out of 5 stars Kym Grosso's books just keep getting better & better!!! April 5 2014
By RoseH - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I have loved every single book in Kym’s Immortals of New Orleans series but she has truly outdone herself with this book. From the very first page I was immersed in a tale of deceit, adventure, magic, & immortal love.

Leopold is a 1000 year old vampire who has known unbelievable pain but, although he holds himself aloof from those around him, still has a beautiful soul. This is not to say that he is not fully Vampire, he is. He is just not a soulless vampire as some might expect of someone who has been in this world as long as he has & seen the things he has seen.

Laryssa is also a magical being (but I won’t tell you what kind). She has been hiding her true nature for many years. But something is after her & she knows she can’t survive without help. But she is scared to trust anyone with the truth of her background. She has hurt & rejected before.

Will Leopold & Laryssa find a way around their past? Will they find a way to keep Laryssa alive? And what of that which brought them together to begin with? And OMG, you won’t believe what happens at the end…

And my goodness (fan myself frantically) the heat factor is this book is through the roof!

I simply cannot wait until the next book in this series!!!!!

Cajun girl in Phoenix... I truly loved this book,when I started it I couldn't put it down til I finished it.I loved the story line,the characters,the humor,mystery,some twists and turns I didn't anticipate,and of course the romance.I truly love Paranormal reads,any time I can read about a hot,sexy Vampire and Were's,I'm a happy camper... I have loved this series from bk 1 and this one so far has to be my new favorite.If you love Paranormal romance I urge other readers to check it out,I guarantee you fall in love with the characters Leopold and Laryssa,I did ...I love the mystery as Leopold is on the hunt for a killer in the Big Easy,and enlists Laryssa's help in catching a Demon,to protect a were infant and in turn Laryssa herself,I don't want to delve to deeply as I don't want to give anything away ...

HASH(0x9d3a8c30) out of 5 stars Luscious Leopold will win you over! April 6 2014
By Xkoqueen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Leopold's Wicked Embrace is the fifth book in Kym Grosso's Immortals of New Orleans series, and it is one of my favorites. We first met Leopold in book one, Kade's Dark Embrace, and he was fascinating and mysterious then and even yummier to get to know as a main character. I loved his back story.

Leopold is a very old vampire, and he oozes old-world charm and style. His suave, sophisticated style will hook you. He is joined in this latest book by Dimitri who we also met in an earlier book. They're an odd couple given that Dimitri is a wolf. Both creatures find Laryssa Theriot easy on the eyes which makes things interesting when the three of them, along with most of the leads from the prior books join forces to protect a very special, orphaned baby from an evil, dark spirit. Laryssa may be the key to the mystery of the baby since she can sense the baby's power and the coming evil.

Leopold uses his charms and alpha-male tendencies to win over Laryssa, and he uses his lethal, honed vampiric skills to keep her safe.

True to her style, Kym Grosso has written another sure-to-be-a -hit paranormal romance. This is a definite one-click purchase! Read the whole series to get to know the characters and their history together for the best experience, but it is not absolutely necessary to do so in order to enjoy this good read.

This book is intended for adult readers only.
