About this ebook

He’s a gifted sculptor. A successful billionaire. And insanely attractive.

In other words, complete out of the league of a struggling grad student like me. 

I shouldn’t think of Antoine as anything other than my benefactor. He’s a gifted sculptor who owns the art colony. I’m only here due to his generosity.

The way he looks at me from those smoldering eyes does nothing to stifle this forbidden desire. 

But when I discover his secret, the truth is overwhelming.  

And the cost might be my life. 

Join the fans who have discovered a world unlike any other in Lisa Carlisle's series with vampires, gargoyles, and wolf shifters!

Full of fiery, forbidden romance and irresistible, misunderstood heroes, this series will captivate fans of steamy paranormal romance and lovers of all things gothic!

I loved the beginning to what is truly a great series. its short, its hot and it has action that keeps you interested in Savannah & Antoine's story of true love. Savannah was thrilled to be accepted to the Art Colonies program, what she never imagined was to0 be so attracted to the very dark, but talented sculptor and creator of the colony. The characters are really complete and the background they both carry gives you a complete image of who they are. The chemistry between these two is very

The prequel "Darkness Rising" of the Chateau Seductions Series tells the story of how Antoine became a vampire and how he's learned to live as one. What an awesome start to this new series! Book one "Dark Velvet" continues his story.... WOW JUST WOW!!! What a beautiful love story. I was mesmerized by these two likeable main characters and their story had me turning page after page. This is a well written book with such wonderful characters and a beautiful storyline about loneliness, love and more. The intense chemistry, blazing hot sexy scenes, emotions, inner turmoil and danger will keep you engaged until the end. Overall, it's a fantastic read that I definitely recommend.
