On the first day of her nude modeling job, Elle deals with a corpse, an eccentric dark artist, his sexy brother, and a grandmother that can see someone's future by just touching their hands. Although these crazy distractions shove her on edge, it's just what she needs to mend her battered heart and forget about her ex-boyfriend. Besides, she does get to live in their castle for the whole three months.
Everything seems magical and perfect. Until more dead bodies are discovered.
There's something going on at night, right in the artist's garden. Under the moonlight, young women are being cut and sliced, and no one has a clue to who's doing it. And the more she's around the weird family in the castle, the more she realizes that they all are hiding secrets.

We all came to watch her die.
We were distorted silhouettes against a moonlit sky like goblins or ghosts who came out at night, when the moon was full and welcomed wicked things to earth.
We surrounded her in a large circle, and she fluttered her eyelashes like an injured butterfly wagging its broken wings in a last attempt to fly. And similar to the insect falling to its demise, she lay on the wet ground in the midst of a garden, dying among growing things—carrots and cabbage, grass and fertile earth.
Stars glittered in the night. The moon glowed. A breeze kissed her flesh for the last time. It was beautiful in a way that was immorally wrong.
And then her expression froze into a picture, one discarded among forgotten things, except no one would ever forget her.
“I'll make sure they remember.” I took a strand of her hair.
Everyone nodded in silent agreement, and then one by one disappeared into the castle’s dark shadows where night met blackened air and creepy things whispered the most haunting words into the wind.

5 Star Review
I received this book from the Touring Host for an honest review.
This was definitely a different book than the normal Erotic Romance. Do not understand me wrong, this is an erotic romance but with a bizarre story line that I could not do nothing else but give it five stars. I loved the cover as well, it just says so much about the story itself.
The story was excellently planned and written with enough suspense to keep you baffled with the main characters till the very end.
When women started to die at a famous artist castle, suspicion ran rampant with Alvarez and Elle's minds. Who did it? Who could they trust? The mystery surrounding them mounted and everyone was a suspect. With a woman locked in the attic and an older woman seeking human blood and human organs for her sacrifices, you had a suspenseful time dissecting through all the twists and turns in the book.
Talking about Alvarez, oh my word, this man surpasses hot. His devotion to his family and all the artists gathering at the Castle was admirable. And romantic, good grief, it stirred everything in your imagination, he is that good. I loved his character the most, believable, protective, sincere, passionate, devoted and honest as he revealed his heart to one woman.
Elle, our heroin in the story was life personified, giving hope to the wary while trying to find herself after a long abusive relationship with Michael. A nude model for artist, she was known for her beauty and very long black hair. Men were mesmerized by her, artists fought about her but at the end she was a young woman who wanted what we all want. A man that would allow her to be herself and still love her unconditionally.
Hex was definitely a fascinating character and caused for many speculations through out the book and at the end you are left speechless, not sure what to think of his ideas.
The old woman, now this was a character I would not like to meet in real life. I think I will stop right there with her description just in case she gives me some tainted cheese.**smile**
A book that kept me glued to its pages as I was taken on the journey with the most interesting plot I have read in a while. With enough tension to make it enjoyable and enough romance to believe in happy endings. O snap, now I have given it away...just read the book, you will not be disappointed.
