Welcome to my stop on the Cold Nights, Hot Reads Blog Hop. I’m writing from New England where it is c-c-c-cold! We have feet of snow piled up around the house. It’s a good excuse to stay in and read or write–well, in between shoveling sessions.
During another snow storm on Valentine’s Day, I completed Dark Stranger, part of my Chateau Seductions series. It’s available for preorder now, scheduled for release in April. Now is a good time to catch up on the paranormal romance series. Read on for more about it and a chance to win a copy of Dark Muse, the second part of the series.
Chateau Seductions series
Chateau Seductions Part 1
Grad student Savannah Evans is thrilled to be accepted as a resident to a prestigious art colony. Where else would she be able to focus on her craft of writing poetry in a setting like that of the medieval-styled castle? The remote New England island is a respite from her hectic city life. When she meets her benefactor, a mysterious French sculptor, her expectations for carefree days writing near the ocean are distracted by unprofessional fantasies about her sponsor.
Antoine Chevalier built Les Beaux Arts on DeRoche Island to bring purpose back to an existence that has lost meaning. He’s wandered the earth for decades and finds solace in returning to art. When Savannah applies for a residency, something about her words touches him. After her arrival, a physical attraction grows between them, which he struggles against. She deserves more than someone of his kind.
Antoine proposes they become lovers during her stay. But the situation turns complicated when Savannah discovers his secret. She had suspicions about his identity, but finds the truth overwhelming. Consumed by her desire for Antoine and faced with a tough decision, she is blind to the danger that has arrived at DeRoche Island.
A New Adult Erotic Romance
Paranormal / gargoyle / vampire / shapeshifter
“The setting on DeRoche Island was beautiful, and felt like it was from another time. The chemistry between Savannah and Antoine is sure to draw the reader in as well.
Dark Velvet is the first novella in the Chateau Seduction series. I am very excited to read Carlisle’s next installment!”
“Dark Velvet has a dark eroticism that makes you want to be Savannah. It is a book that is a good, quick and darkly thrilling read.”
“…insanely hot chemistry between the female protagonist Savannah & vampire Antoine. Their intensity starts off right away and you’re not a chapter in before it takes off like a rocket!”
“Sexy, dark, full of intrigue, art, and paranormal sexiness, Dark Velvet has it all in one hot package!”
“An Enchanting Story, as rich and sexy as Dark Velvet – This is a seductive Gothic tale that will draw you in from the first page.”
Chateau Seductions Part 2
It takes time before Gina Meiro warms up to people and her shyness is often misunderstood. She hasn’t had to worry about meeting new people at a remote art colony until a new resident arrives—a rock guitarist more suited for a billboard. Her carefree days of painting at the medieval-styled castle on a remote New England island are shattered when she stumbles right into his welcome gathering.
After a falling out with his band, Dante Riani wants nothing more at Les Beaux Arts on DeRoche Island than solitude to work on new songs. When a shy young painter asks to paint him at sunset, he’s tempted by the opportunity to be alone with her.
Someone at the colony claims to know what Dante is and asks for his help. Dante fears his plans are coming undone, especially as grows more drawn to Gina. Her scent and vulnerability are too difficult to resist. But he must stay away from her—she would never understand his secret.
5* Review of Dark Muse from Books and Beyond Fifty Shades! – “While it is a story about struggle, it is also about love; and doing whatever needs to be done to be with the one you are attracted to. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Gina and Dante. This story has the perfect amount of witty banter, sex, and romance.”
“I absolutely Loved this second book Dark Muse. If you love romance with a side kick of action then this is for you.”
“I love this author and I love her gargoyle stories. I can’t wait to read more of them, so keep on writing them.”
“Fast paced story with steamy hot sex and those two characters that promise you an amazing time.
An amazing scenery, an amazing plot and of course you get the chance to see what’s going on in the chateau and in the characters we met in the first book as well!”
