Seductive Shadows (Shadows #1)

Charlie is a passionate, sensually-inspired art student, desperately seeking an escape from the abusive past that haunts her and a tragic accident that emptied her heart. Scarred and unable to love, her yearning for physical pleasure leads her into a tantalizing, dangerous world of power and seduction. The anonymity of the deal offers security; the money brings financial freedom and the madam is the mother figure she longs for.

But the thrill of the mansion and its arousing dominance quickly fades when she meets renowned-yet-mysterious Cameron Hardy, whose intense baby blue eyes send a nervous flutter through her core. Cameron is sexy, and not in a subtle way. He stimulates Charlie’s art, her intellect and her desires. Just as he begins to break through her emotional boundaries, she discovers a devastating connection between her past and her scandalous work at the mansion, shattering everything she thought to be true.

Provocative, intoxicating and erotic, Seductive Shadows is the unforgettable tale of a young woman’s self-discovery as she learns to forgive, to love and be loved, and to find redemption amidst a remarkable journey that will captivate your mind and stimulate your soul.

This book is for mature audiences. It contains explicit language and sexual content

Seductive Secrecy (Shadows #2)

“We were two broken souls who had found each other in a world of shadows. We were held together by a connection of secrets, dark and fearful and reluctant to leave. Their depth was seductive and overwhelming, an endless ocean of black that threatened to cover the brilliance we kept reaching for with each other.”

With her art career flourishing and the mansion predators no longer a threat, Charlie is creating a new life. Her desires have changed, and she has a chance at a healthy, loving relationship with Cameron—if they can bury the memories and doubts that plague them.

Can they overcome the destruction of their clouded pasts, or will the revelation of more painful, shocking secrets pull them back into the shadows?

This was an amazing series with so much romance and erotica.  I felt this story to be very well written.
With so much going on in this series you just couldn’t see anything go wrong!  Lots of love, sex, mystery and heart wrenching angst.
You will find love when you don’t expect it, a well written journey of a girl who feels lost and alone.  She eventually opens up her heart and finds love.  She thought the comfort she felt for one person was love, but she later realized that it wasn’t and she knew she couldn’t be satisfied with just that, so she went and found true love.
Charlie is an aspiring artist who feels low of herself, even though she’s a very beautiful woman. She will find that her life changes when she starts working at the Mansion.  She started earning sums of money that she never thought possible in a week’s worth.  Charlie has also started working with Cameron, a sexy famous artist.  He brings out the best in her and she starts opening up to him and feels like she connects with him.
She can’t speak to anyone about her line of work and she her life becomes a bit dangerous and she knows it’s going to be pretty hard for her to get away from.
Even though Charlie faces danger, she finds a way to leave the line of work that endangered her and becomes an artist.
This series turns out beautifully as her the love evolves between Charlie and Cameron.  So much twists and turns and angst are in this series.
I really have to say this was an amazing series and was very happy with the ending.  Totally my kind of read and if you like to read about love, sex, intrigue, mystery …. then this is the book for you!
Totally worth your time 🙂
