 Seductive Secrecy (book #2)

With a shadow cast over the mansion, can Charlie and Cameron overcome the destruction of their pasts and rebuild their future, or will the revelation of painful, shocking secrets pull them back into the darkness?

Seductive Shadows (book #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.

Author’s Take on Charlie Williams from Seductive Secrecy
By Marni Mann

Similar to Cameron, Charlie also came to me in a dream and at the time she was wearing a mask. It wasn’t until halfway through my dream when she finally took it off and revealed her face, her hurt, her discomfort. I took that same approach as I wrote both novels, slowly unveiling the truth and the real identity of each character.

Her looks were a combination of a few people I know, but her personality was completely unique. She’s stunning even without makeup. Probably even more so, actually. Her eyes were alluring and a deep emerald, her lips sensual, and her expression often confessed her erotic hunger.

 Charlie’s past was tragic and it constantly haunted her and shadowed her emotions, affected her decisions, and it reminded her of who really lived inside those walls: the ones within her and the ones within the mansion. But even though she’s marked with painful, rooted scars, she still had a strong ability to trust. She might not say the exact word too often, or at all, but she definitely showed love.

Unknown Fact: Charlie doesn’t have a middle name. She doesn’t want one, either.

She's a New Englander at heart and now a Floridian, inspired by the sandy beaches and hot pink sunsets of Sarasota. She writes erotic romance, new adult and literary fiction, tapping a mainstream appeal and shaking worldwide taboos, taking her readers on a dark, harrowing, and breathtaking journey. When she's not nose deep in my laptop, she is scouring for chocolate, traveling, reading, or walking my four-legged children.
