Tour organized by: AToMR Tours

With a shadow cast over the mansion, can Charlie and Cameron overcome the destruction of their pasts and rebuild their future, or will the revelation of painful, shocking secrets pull them back into the darkness?

Marni Mann is someone I hold dear to my heart, and I am a huge fan!  I will give you a few of the reasons why I think Seductive Secrecy should be on your 'must read' list based on its own merit.
In this follow-up to book #1, Seductive Shadows, Charlie and Cameron are put to the test as they are trying to re-build a life away from their past. In this book, we get to see how Charlie and Cameron are living after her work at the mansion.  Seductive Secrecy is an addictive,erotic ride that kept me turning the pages as fast as I could!! Readers who were captivated by the first book will most certainly fall in love with this one too!

I admire Charlie, she is probably one of the top 5 female characters that has to be the strongest in any book I've read.  There is so much beauty in her darkness.  She has coped the best way she knew how to and took a lot of hits for it.  In the first book, I wanted to know more about Cameron, in this book we learn a lot about him and he is now my favorite book boyfriend.  He is thoughtful, caring, and oh so very sexy! I don't think I have highlighted so much in a book, but I just had to capture what was happening with him and Charlie.  Charlie and Carmon strengthen each other in very different ways, ways they make each other whole. 

We get so much closure in this book, and as well as some surprises that I did not even see coming! In the end, I am sad to see their story to come to as close, but I am very happy with the way things ended for them. What an emotional ride this turned out to be. Compelling. Be prepared to go through a box of tissues, highlight the book like crazy, and of course need more than a few cold showers along the way.

If you are undecided what your next book is going to be, then I HIGHLY recommend Seductive Shadows and Seductive Secrecy, you will be blown away by it!!  This series is an absolutely thrilling must-read! I am hoping to see another book in this series (can Dallas please have his own book, please!)!!!


Cameron... my dawn.  He had broken through the darkness- my darkness- and pulled me from the depths.

It reminded me that no matter how well we knew each other by now, there was still a layer of secrecy... the mystery was seductie, powerful. Erotic.

It seemed like vanilla was a flavor that no one liked to order anymore.

We were two broken souls who has found each other in a world of shadows.  We were held together by a connection of secrets, dark and fearful and recluctant to leave.

The darkness was able to exist without extinguishing the light.

Where there is love there is no darkness.

 A New Englander at heart, Marni Mann is now a Floridian inspired by the sandy beaches and hot pink sunsets of Sarasota. She taps mainstream appeal and shakes worldwide taboos, taking her readers on a dark and breathtaking journey. When she’s not nose deep in her laptop, she’s scouring for chocolate, traveling, reading, or walking her four-legged children.
