Etreasures Publishing

Geneva Chilton, warned against human contact, betrays her family in order to be close to the world she longs to join. Intrigued by an artist’s work and his ability to capture life on canvas, Geneva steps too close to the boundaries and discovers love, but what price will she have to pay? 

Lewis Hunt, intrigued by Geneva’s beauty and determined to capture it on canvas, discovers he needs more. Lewis needs the real woman behind the beauty. His course leads him to her, but also to danger. How hard is he willing to fight for a woman of darkness, a vampire?


Excerpt

Chapter One

Geneva licked her lips, savoring the hint of sweet metallic blood. Allowed only a small amount of the delicacy, she craved more. As she stepped from the moonlit night into the quiet gallery, a shiver laced through her body. With each forbidden step, she searched for hidden dangers. If the clan discovered the deception, she'd be punished – of that she held no doubt.

With only her pale face visible beneath the black cloak, Geneva moved in front of the large painting. A majestic tree cast shadows over the landscape, children danced in play, and a young couple kissed by a lake. The sun glinted off a wine glass in the woman's hand. Geneva ached to join such a scene, yet destiny tore her in the opposite direction – darkness. Gliding a finger across the canvas, she longed to be pulled within.

A hand gripped Geneva's shoulder. Instinct screamed for her to flee. Instead, she prepared for the worse and turned. A scrawny man fidgeted in place. A starched, blue security uniform hung loosely from his wiry frame. He recoiled, stammering incoherently.

Geneva cringed at the reaction, but wasn't at all surprised. The pale skin and death-filled eyes scared humans. Their fear saturated her soul with pain. She wished to be a part of their world, yet they refused to accept the breed. The paintings provided a brief connection to human normalcy, but it wasn't the same as the physical, the joy of holding another.

“Miss, you aren't allowed to touch the artwork.” The security guard stuttered, bowing his head.

“I'm sorry. Please forgive me.”

The man nodded and scurried away into the shadows. Just another mortal afraid of the death wrapped tightly around her – without even realizing the source of fear.



Professional Reviews

Cher Green's Seduced by Darkness delights in a seductive tale of the power of love and loss.

Geneva can't help but be drawn to the artist Lewis Hunt, who sees more in her than the impenetrable darkness. Lewis Hunt must paint her, even though he doesn't know her. When their passions collide, they must find a way to bridge two worlds or lose them both and all they love.

Seduction draws characters together and binds them in love. Cher Green creates characters that touch the reader. They are three-dimensional in their love, lust, loss. There is a tragic appeal to them. Seduced by Darkness is fast-paced, but also lingers in its descriptions when the story dictates it. There is a Romeo and Juliet quality to this novella, a bridging of humans and vampires. Green gives us a taste of their world, a perfect sip of pleasure and darkness.

Be prepared to read Seduced by Darkness by Cher Green in one sitting, but it will linger within you much longer.
