Dark Velvet

He’s a gifted sculptor. A successful billionaire. And insanely attractive.

In other words, complete out of the league of a struggling grad student like me.

I shouldn’t think of Antoine as anything other than my benefactor. I’m only here on a scholarship at the art colony due to his generosity.

The way he looks at me from those smoldering eyes does nothing to stifle this forbidden desire.

But when I discover his secret, the truth is overwhelming.

Can I walk away?

Distracted by this decision, I’m blind to the danger on the island.

And the cost just might be my life.
