I have always loved those atmospheric, shivery, gothic romances – the spooky houses, the moody hero, the uncertainty of who is friend and who is foe. The only thing I found lacking was spice. Several years ago, I discovered author Eve Silver, who wrote a small (unfortunately) series of five gothics, which I adored. Her books were definitely sexy, and just what I was looking for. Eve soon moved on to be very successful in other genres, but I have never given up hope that she may have another gothic romance or two in her just waiting to burst free.
Seduced By a Stranger is a dark, sexy story. Both the hero and heroine have endured terrible experiences in their pasts. There is an evil twin, twists and turns, heart pounding excitement, love and healing, and a resolution that is perfect. If you’re a fan of this genre, or just like a darker historical romance, this book should be on your to-be-read list. I can also recommend Dark Desires, Dark Prince, His Dark Kiss, and His Wicked Sins.
