Wrapped in Shadows
by Lisa Eugene
One night of shadows. One night of bliss. One night of evil.
Katherine Regina Vandercamp has everything. Wealth. Beauty. Social standing. She’s the heiress to the Vandercamp fortune and engaged to the man of her dreams. One night it all shatters…
Finding her fiancé with another woman, she is distraught and makes a reckless decision to go with a friend to a sex club. Needing total anonymity, she has sex with a stranger in a room of total darkness, a sensuous cocoon of silky shadows. She has no idea who this man is or what he looks like. But it is in the shadows she finds solace. In the shadows she finds bliss.
She can’t forget this stranger’s touch, his taste, his scent. He infiltrates her dreams and holds her thoughts and body captive. But had she made a false assumption about her fiancé? Had he really been unfaithful? She regrets her hasty actions and is tormented by guilt. She is determined to marry the man she loves and forget her stranger.
Sinister events unfolded at the sex club. There was a gruesome murder and her stranger has been charged with the crime. Katie knows he’s innocent because she was with him at the time of the murder. She is shocked to find that he’s not a stranger after all. Will she reveal her horrible secret? Will she besmirch the Vandercamp name? Will she risk losing the man who has her heart to save the man who’s touched her soul?
Will coming forward put her in danger? Her life is in turmoil. All because of that one night.
A night that changed everything…
I really enjoyed this book. The opening scene really made an impact and the rest of the story kept me glued to my tablet to the very end. I devoured this book in just a few hours. It was sweet and romantic at times yet also had an underlying suspense/thriller to it. They sex scenes were steamy but did overthrow the overall story line.
Katie and her mystery guy have one steamy night and then think they’ll never meet again (although neither can get the other out of their head). I don’t want to give a spoiler away by revealing who the man is but lets just say that I was seriously swooning over him. He’s sexy, sweet, and caring. Katie is a people pleaser and I seriously wanted to smack her a few times when she was making excuses for her ex (Josh). However, she’s also smart and compassionate. These two made a great couple and I really liked them both.
The story line had my attention the whole time and I couldn’t put the book down. That little bit of mystery and suspense really kept me intrigued and had me constantly working to figure out who it was while also enjoying the story of Katie and her mystery guy. The book flowed really well and it was an easy and enjoyable read. I look forward to reading more by this author. 5 out of 5 palm trees!
Lisa Eugene began writing as a way to mentally escape from the hectic medical world where she has been a practicing nurse for over twenty years. After publishing her first novel, STRICTLY BUSINESS, she quickly learned that readers couldn’t get enough of the world she created and now she lives out her wildest fantasies by writing steamy romantic suspense for her fan-favorite Washington Memorial Hospital series.
When she’s not plotting her next dangerous, fast-paced, sexy adventure, you can find her juggling a full time job, playing soccer mom, or curled up reading a good romance.
