Blind Seduction ~ Review

Blind Seduction
Team Red Series ~ Book #1
by T. Hammond
April 6, 2013
Can a blind woman who shares a very special bond with her dog, gain her independence and choose between the love of TWO sailors?
In Blind Seduction an accident leaves Teresa March scarred and completely blind. Encouraged by the support of her friends, Teresa sets about adapting to life in the dark, reclaiming her independence.

Best friends make the toughest adversaries. Sebastian Declan and David Preston retire after twenty years of service to their country. Teresa’s scars discourage neither man in their newest mission: winning her heart. Bastian’s battle is uphill, overcoming Teresa’s negative teenage impression. David is a virtual stranger who fell in love with Teresa through Bas’ pictures and childhood stories. These sexy sailors will stop at nothing, including deploying military tactics, to secure Teresa for themselves.

Smart, opinionated, and handsome commonly describe German Shepherds. Teresa’s service dog, Red, is all this, and then some. Red and Teresa are surprised to discover they share a bond which allows Red to speak into Teresa’s mind. Red’s adept tracking skills, and ability to deduce information, open new opportunities for the pair. More importantly, his quirky humor brightens Teresa’s dark world.
Welcome to Team Red!
You will laugh out loud (the author apologizes in advance for the strange looks you will get when you start to giggle uncontrollably), in this Humorous, Spicy, Paranormal Romance.

WARNING: This book is INTENDED FOR MATURE ADULTS OVER 18. Contains swearing, which is unfortunate, as the dog repeats everything. When you have two hot, single-minded, sailors pursuing the same woman, graphic language and sexual situations are inevitable.

Blind Seduction is a treat to the senses! It's official...I am completely addicted to this story! #TeamRed The characters & their fabulous sense of humor sold me at the get go. If I could share with you all of the hilarious scenes I highlighted we'd be here quite awhile, but hey you would do better to grab your copy so you can highlight your own personal favorites.
Red is absolutely adorable & his sarcasm priceless! Teresa & Red's conversations flow flawlessly. Janey & Ken are a whole other breed of awesome, true friends to the end. The guys of course bring a whole new level to dating with their strategies, & their surveillance tactics had me doubling over. I don't think there was one single character I did not find interesting, each and every one being essential to this well orchestrated ploy to hook us, ensuring we'd be back for more. I could not stop reading!
Once we get to the dating & those hot HOT hot scenes...let's just say, you may find yourself with an internal struggle as you choose between the uncontrollable bursts of laughter, blushing, & fanning yourself regularly as they become more frequent & intense. There is so much more there than meets the eye. A sensual refreshing read to the end! Love this series & jumping into book 2 right now!

Color Blind ~ Team Red Series ~ Book #2
April 6, 2013
Blinded and scarred in a freak accident a year ago, Teresa has finally found love and a new career with the help of her companion dog, Red. Red appears to be a typical German shepherd, but he shares a mental communication link with his owner that is anything but ordinary. He’s articulate, sassy and opinionated - he’s also scary-smart, and has a talent for tracking.
Teresa and Red, have partnered with ex-Navy men, David, and Bastian, to form Team Red. This unique Team helps the local police department sift through evidence to find forensic clues that only Red's sensitive nose, and Teresa's ability to ask the right questions can uncover. A twist of fate brings Team Red to the attention of the Military, and the Team gets ready for their first undercover mission (we can only divulge at this point that Red looks adorable in his tux).

This book is a Laugh-Out-Loud paranormal extra spicy romance (Yes, I’ve boldly meshed humor and sex *gasp!*). This Team Red book contains a feisty blind woman with a sassy attitude; a snarky German shepherd who stalks low flying objects (and the occasional cat); a man-cave with secret tunnels and classified military toys; two sexy retired Navy men with a talent for tactical planning; a formal invitation to a black and white ball; Marilyn Monroe; and a herd of Mustangs (okay, maybe ‘herd’ is a slight exaggeration). 
*This book is INTENDED FOR MATURE ADULTS OVER 18Sexual situations and adult language were used (and abused) in the making of this novel.

 “Falling in love with you is the easiest thing I’ve ever done, David. Waking up beside you every morning, makes me happier than I have ever been in my life. There are times I wake up in the middle of the night and simply enjoy the sound of your breathing.”
     He nuzzled my neck, and teased, “Next time, wake me up, then you can enjoy the sound of me breathing really, really heavily.”

 *    *    *    *
 Bas snickered, “He acted like it was a great love affair.”
     Now it was my turn to snicker, “He was no one special in my life. Lighten up, guys, it’s not as if my heart was broken.”
     “What’s broken?” Ken asked as he walked through the room toward the kitchen, obviously having missed the whole conversation. “Shall I grab a roll of duct tape?”
     “Duct tape can’t fix stupid,” Bas growled.
     "Maybe not,” Red replied, “but it can hold it down and muffle the screams.”

“I’ll need a gown that’s appropriate for the ball. Something long and sparkly, I think. Christmasy and a little sexy.”
     Bas leaned over and placed a chaste kiss on the crown of my head. “You got it, Loser. Christmasy. Glittery.  Slit to the navel.”
     “Sexy, not slutty,” David corrected with a soft laugh. “You’ll have to be seen with her too, Bas. I’m sure you can imagine how she’d embarrass you if you tried to dress her like the Ho Ho Ho Hooker.”

T. Hammond lives in Spokane, WA with her goofy, neurotic, long-coat German shepherd, Dexter; he's noble and brave, until someone turns on the microwave, then she has 100lbs of quivering dog trying to hide behind her chair or bury his head under a pillow (Little known fact: a 100lb German Shepherd CAN fit under a coffee table).
T. writes two concurrent versions of the Team Red series for both the Adult and New Adult audiences. Blind Seduction and Color Blind are part of the Blind series - featuring adult-themed erotic romance combined with a humorous paranormal storyline. The Red series featuring Red Rover and Red Zone (release date Aug 23rd) is a funny paranormal romance series with a lighter PG13 type storyline. While both series contain the same character names and a lot of shared dialogue, the Red series is stripped of sexual content and language.
T feels that writing is not a calling so much as it is a compulsion. No one is more surprised than she is when characters take over the plot and dialog, and (re)direct stories in directions she had not (consciously) intended. She is fully convinced that the writer is the tool a story uses to tell its tale. Some tools, of course, are more appropriate for the job than others. Here's hoping, you feel she did her stories proud.
T. has a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Management from Whitworth University, and a Master's Degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University and before becoming a writer she was a bookkeeper, technical/manual writer, Call Center Manager and the owner of a freshwater aquarium store, Guppy Tales.

  1. An awesome series! I recommend anyone with half a sense of humor to grab this book. I loved it, and both my daughters loved it...and we all have different tastes in reading material.
