    This was a fun, fast read The passion is smoldering, and the pace lightning fast I would have liked to get to know Savannah and Antoine a little better, but there is only so much you can do in such a short amount of words, so we got a glimpse into their personalities with little as to their daily thoughts and deep desires This is definitely not your grannies sweet romance, so be prepared for some teasing, pleasing and graphic interactions Overall this was a great first book in a series that can technically be read as standalones, though you certainly would want to read them chronologically to avoid any spoilers 4 stars of sexy awesomeness Free arc provided in exchange for honest review.

    A well balanced blend of paranormal, eroticism, and spine tingling thrills Since she had arrived for her stay at the artists colony called Les Beaux Arts at the Chateau DeRoche, she d noticed something different about the owner, Antoine Chevalier And not just the way his eyes bore into hers, shooting shivers through her and making it difficult to breathe His quiet nature, his preference for seclusion for days at a time, and his still, composed temperament belied an intensity within Noir eyes that rarely blinked spoke of haunted depth and smoldering passion.Lisa Carlisle s Dark Velvet is a darkly sensual vampire story with lots of depth and spice to the story The story is action packed with smoldering sex scenes It will grab the reader s attention from the start and never let go This is the story of French sculptor Antoine Chevalier, the vampire owner of Les Beaux Arts, and Savannah Evans, a graduate student of poetry This particular installment was my personal favorite in the series with sizzling off the chart chemistry While Dark Velvet is the first book in Lisa s Chateau Seductions series, I would highly recommend that readers first pick up Darkness Rising, the prequel novella to this series Darkness Rising is told from Antoine s point of view and focuses on Antoine s story prior to Dark Velvet In addition, Savannah is first introduced in Darkness Rising I was already vested in Antoine s character and in Lisa s entire Chateau Seductions world by reading Darkness Rising first Each of the installments in this series are fast paced and the characterizations build as the story progresses If you do not read Darkness Rising first, you may feel that Antoine s and Savannah s character development is lacking in Dark Velvet I actually cannot imagine reading the series without reading DARKNESS RISING first So do yourself a huge favor and start with the prequel and then continue reading the series in order You won t be sorry The characters of Antoine and Savannah truly shined Antoine is actually a cross between two species He was born a gargoyle but was turned into a vampire against his will while studying sculpture under Rodin in France His vampire side thirsts for human blood while his gargoyle side is driven to protect humans He exudes mystery and sensuality While his purpose in the castle is to encourage the artists who reside there, his attraction to Savannah is much than that He cannot stop thinking about her or stay away from her I want my own Antoine Savannah is taking a break from her graduate studies to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the famously renowned Les Beaux Arts colony She loves the castle, the beautiful DeRoche Island and the other artists in attendance Her poetic creativity is thriving in this setting However, she wasn t counting on her strong attraction to Antoine, the castle owner and her benefactor When she looks at him, all she can think about is how it would feel to be in his arms Thankfully, the attraction between them is not one sided.Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from Dark Velvet You wanted to see me she asked after shutting the door She remained where she was, not daring to move any closer.He turned his gaze from the fire crackling over the logs to face her Those dark eyes scanned her from head to foot and when they reached her once again, they gleamed with unmistakable hunger Take off your clothes, he said calmly Don t be afraid, he said Art is full of agony and beauty The pen itself a sword of pleasure and pain, isn t it, my poet I bought new lingerie today I wanted to show you, but I didn t get a chance with all that happened You ll have to return tomorrow night then Maybe we ll order an entire catalog His smile and the glint of mischievousness in his eyes reflected lascivious thoughts You can model all the outfits you d like for me There was absolutely no way I could stop reading Dark Velvet once I started This is not a sweet romance If you are looking for a clean romance, you will want to look elsewhere But, if you enjoy well written, well plotted steamy reads, you ve most definitely come to the right place I alternately swooned, gasped and got goose bumps Readers who enjoy a well balanced blend of paranormal, eroticism, and spine tingling thrills will be well rewarded I inhaled this whole series in days This is actually a book that I would not hesitate to read again It s that good.Suggested Reading Order The Chateau Seductions seriesDarkness Rising Book 0.5 Dark Velvet Book 1 Dark Muse Book 2 Dark Stranger Book 3 Dark Pursuit Book 4 a holiday romance My full review is posted at Reading Between The Wines Book Club Please check it out there

    Savannah Evans is taking time off from her graduate classes to attend a prestigious art colony, Les Beaux Arts This is a once in a lifetime chance for the poet The quiet island, the castle, and other artists are a wonderful influence on her work Another influence she wasn t counting on was the castle owner Antoine Chevalier Savannah quickly finds herself hopelessly attracted to the mysterious gentleman, and the attraction is far from one sided.Savannah seems to me to be someone who lives in her world of the arts She is a poet, but appreciative of the arts in all forms She doesn t seem like one with a terrible lack of confidence, but Antoine brings forth boldness in her Her relationship with Antoine is also sort of a journey of self discovery She is also intuitive she is able to sense there is to Antoine that meets the eye Antoine is mysterious, sexy, and than an ordinary man Although he is there to encourage the artists in his castle there is a sense that he is a secretive man, but he sees something in Savannah he can t stay away from.Carlisle gives readers a blend of the paranormal and the erotic This novella was a very enjoyable read for me The setting on DeRoche Island was beautiful, and felt like it was from another time The chemistry between Savannah and Antoine is sure to draw the reader in as well.Dark Velvet is the first novella in the Chateau Seduction series I am very excited to read Carlisle s next installment Reviewed by Teresa D for ThatsErotica.com

    Looking for a sexy vampire novel If so, then this is definitely a must buy Why First off, it s set in a medieval castle on an island off the coast of New England The author s description was so detailed that once I finished, I did a Google search of castles that I d like to visit Second thru ninety five The number of pages the book has The insanely hot chemistry between the female protagonist Savannah vampire Antoine Their intensity starts off right away and you re not a chapter in before it takes off like a rocket Slight SM with love involved Sounds perfect My only complaint was the length, because I definitely want to find out about the world the author created Kitty
