The streets of Savannah have stories to tell…

One determined Alpha male. A woman whose faith in love is shattered. Tantric sex. Could be a disaster or maybe a path to healing.

What happens when your romance novel fantasies collide with your reality? Forty-something Cullan Davis almost has it all. Loving family, friends, successful business, community activist – and no sex life.

A chronic, disfiguring skin disease and past abuse left physical and emotional scars that prevent her from believing in relationship possibilities. Resigned to being alone, she compensates by living vicariously through the heroines in her beloved romance novels. When her real-life lust from afar notices her, panic sets in. She cannot possibly get involved. Her scars are too deep. No man wants a self-proclaimed freak, do they?

Royce Jacobson is a wealthy philanthropist, single parent of a twenty-year-old daughter and womanizing player. Practicing his own version of tantric sex, he subscribes to the love ’em and leave ’em satisfied mentality. He wants to add Cullan to his conquest list but discovers vulnerability in her, touching a part of him he didn’t know existed. She’s an enigma. And Royce excels at solving puzzles. He’s convinced tantra can break through her reserves… if only she would cooperate.

Flawed self-perception, meet ancient sensual practices. Boom.

A complete novel with no cliffhanger – First in the Sultry Savannah Series.

***Shelly – #NerdGirlXrayer’s Review***

  If you want a sensual erotic read with a dose of mystery thrown in then you need to pick up this book.

We meet Cullan Davis who finds solitude in her romance novels.  She is scarred from a chronic, disfiguring skin disease.  She also suffered from abuse in her childhood.  Because of this she can’t feel an emotion during sex without worrying about her scars.  Royce is an alpha male that practices Tantric sex.  He always makes sure his partner is satisfied.  However he doesn’t do relationships.  He wants Cullan but for once he has to pursue a female, because she doesn’t just fall into his arms.

This book deals with many emotions from the characters.  You follow Cullan as she realizes that someone can love her for herself and not see her scars.  Royce is trying to deal with the emotions that he feels for Cullan.  He has not felt this was in a long time.  The sex scenes in this book are hot but what I loved was how sensual the writing of the sex scenes were.  They are written so realistic that you can feel the light touch of the feather, the massage of his hands, and the heat of their kisses.  You will need to cool off after reading them.

The story is more than the romance of two people.  Cullan and Royce are planning on bidding on a building they need to expand their business.  However someone doesn’t want Cullan to have that building and sets out to scare her.  The suspense of who it is and the mystery of how they are going to deter her keeps the storyline moving.

Great read that will leave you feeling a little, ok a lot, heated at the end.  Can’t wait to read more from Lucy Lit.
