“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?

“It was well worth the wait to see you like this,” he said.

Keeping my eyes fixed on him, I turned on my heels so he could see both sides, and completed the full twist. “You have excellent taste.”

He shook his head. “You’d look good in anything.”

I could tell by the way he gripped the molding of the door that he was having a hard time keeping his hands off me. As much as I needed them on my body, the feeling of want that consumed me felt so good that I could tolerate it for a little longer.

“Sometimes I look at you and I’m amazed that you’re mine.”

I knew the words had come from his mouth, but it felt as if I had spoken them. It was exactly what I’d been thinking; that, after everything we had experienced together, everything he knew about me, he still treated me the way he did. He still wanted me as much as he had before he knew the truth. He showed me continuously that he wanted me even more. And I felt the same. Cameron made me insatiable; as much as he gave me, I wanted to be even closer than we were. I wanted his breath to come from my mouth every time I exhaled.

He didn’t take a step forward. He just reached out his hand and felt along the shrug, following the fabric until he arrived at the knot between my breasts. He untied both sides and pulled it off my shoulders. His fingers then circled around me, and without warning he yanked me toward him. My palms settled on his chest, my mouth moving closer to his as he had bent his neck to reach me. Our lips didn’t touch; they hovered, each waiting for the other to close the gap.  

We simmered in the temptation.  

He was the first one to move. His mouth finally crushed against mine, his tongue dipping inside with each kiss. After several, he pulled away. We were both left breathless, our chests rising and falling as we tried to calm ourselves.

“Walk to the bed,” he ordered.

My Review:

***WARNING*** If you have not read Seductive Shadows, you will need to read it prior to reading Seductive Secrecy

Seductive Secrecy picks up six months after the ending of Seductive Shadows. Free of the mansion, Charlie is letting go of her past and moving on with her relationship with Cameron, While she's moving on and her art is growing into a career for her, she can't seem to get over the emotional hold the mansion has on her. She's happy with Cameron, but will she ever be able to let go of Cee?

Charlie has strong feelings for Cameron, but when she sees a painting he's been hired to make for Lora, she can't help but think that their relationship is strong enough to survive their friendship. After all, he was with Lora right up until he left her to be with Cee. Lora has a certain hold over Cameron, they know each other's entire body and every desire, and even though he's with Charlie she can see that Lora still wants Cameron back. Dallas and Charlie's friendship continues to grow and Cameron trusts Charlie, but is that enough?

New characters come into play, pasts and secrets must be faced, will their relationship be strong enough to survive?

This is a hard review to write. All I can say is that if you loved Seductive Shadows, you have to HAVE TO pick up this book. I wasn't quite sure where the plot was going to go, after all the mansion is now gone and parties are being held responsible for their role with the exception of Victoria. I can't really talk about the plot, because doing so would ruin the story. Almost right from the start, new characters are introduced and old ones return to shake up the entire book. that's all I can really say. Marni has given us passionate, well developed characters that pull you in and keep you glued to your reader until well into the night dying to know what will happen next with Charlie and Cameron. Well done, another hit, and I look forward to reading more of Marni's work in the future, 5 stars.
