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.

Thoughts:
This is Charlie's story. It is dark and dirty, just like the life she was born into. The only love she has ever know was that of her best friend Emma, and even that is taken away. She uses sex to fill a void in herself. To feel something. But no attachments. Attachments mean you can get hurt. Because everyone leaves, one way or another.

Seductive Shadows isn't a happy story, so if that's what you like then this book might not be for you. The story did feel like it dragged some and I enjoy more fast paced books. I'm hoping there is a second book though, because this one just ends. No crazy cliffhanger that I hate, but secretly love. I just went to go to the next page and there was none. I would read the next book, because I did enjoy where the story was going. I just wished for a faster pace and a little warning that it was ending.
