Book description:

“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?

**This book is for mature audiences 17+. It contains explicit language and sexual content.


Things had changed dramatically since the mansion. I had softened. I could be easily pleased by one man now, and I largely allowed him to direct our sex, because that was what he liked. He had certain restrictions when it came to his body that stemmed from his childhood abusers. He couldn’t stand it when I approached him from behind. He’d been struck from this direction during his punishments; the coward hadn’t wanted Cameron to look him in the face. He hadn’t yet overcome his sense of the unknown, and felt that what was happening was beyond his control. So I made sure he heard me when I entered a room. And I was extremely careful about where I placed my hands and lips; I didn’t want those to trigger anything, either. I was still learning his other quirks, and I was allowing him to lead. While Cee may have permitted herself to be dominated, letting someone else take the reins during sex was new for Charlie. And instead of creating art as my heart and emotions called me to, I was creating pieces of art for specific clients, tailored to their tastes and not mine. I was taking orders directly from them. Teachers dictated my assignments, creditors dipped into my finances. Lilly’s evil voice appeared in my head whenever it wanted to.

It didn’t feel like I dominated anything in my life anymore.

But the desire for that was still present. It pulsed, throbbed, thrashed because it wasn’t getting attention.

I was burying it in the world that Cameron was creating for me.

But Chet had reminded me of what I missed. He’d shown me a glimpse of what a part of me wanted back, what it felt I truly was and what it yearned to be again. I had done everything I could to curb Cee, to distance myself from the mansion, and to draw myself closer to Cameron.

What if I couldn’t any longer?

What if I needed a place where she could come alive?

What if Cee was really the soul of me, and Charlie was just another mask I wore?
