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.

This is part two in the Chateau Seductions series, but can be read on its own.

New adult, paranormal erotic romance
Shapeshifter / gargoyles / vampires

***Cassandra – #NerdGirlLola’s  Review***
This is the second book in the Chateau Seductions trilogy. Each one can be read as a standalone but somethings make more sense if they are read in order. IMO

Of the 3 books I will admit this one is my favorite. Again the author has such an incredible way with words. When she was describing the sunset where Gina paints Dante for the first time; pure brilliance, I loved it.

I also liked the character interaction better in this book than the first one. We got to see their first meeting, which was quite humorous, and watch their attraction grow. For me it’s all about the buildup. But, Dante did do the whole “playing hard to get” thing like Antoine. So much so I actually screamed at my kindle “Will you just f*** her already!” after a particularly awesome scene where he again gets her hopes up then pushes her away.  My husband just laughed and shook his head.

Overall I loved this book. Beautiful imagery mixed with better character development made this the best in the series, in my opinion. I would definitely recommend this book/ series to any paranormal romance lover.
