Add it on Goodreads 

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.


Another book that had me up into the wee hours reading it!!  I loved it!!  It had me pretty much from the first sentence!!

Elle is starting over, and the way she does that is going to model for the one man her ex hated.  His competition.  Hex Castillo.  What she didn't expect was to meet his gorgeous older brother Alveraz at the same time.  

It doesn't help that there is a dead body there to greet her when she arrives at the artist's family castle.  She's unsure, but she has no where else to go, and decides to take the chance despite her reservations.  She's starting a new life, and is determined not to go back to her artist ex.

Soon, another girl is killed and Elle is horrified to know it's a girl was just starting to befriend.  She decides to stay on at the castle, but makes it known she's gone if she feels threatened in any way.

At the same time, she's getting closer to Alveraz.  She doesn't want to start anything, for fear of being hurt all over again.  Her ex hurt her deeply, and she doesn't want to feel that again.  Al wants her, but knows he needs to wait for her to trust him before anything happens.  

I loved this book!!  As I said, another book that had me up until almost one in the morning.. mostly because my droid died on me at the time.  I didn't have my charger near me, so I had no choice but to go to bed.  

Alvarez is captivated by Elle, but he has secrets of his own.  Also, there is someone else who wants him, which makes things difficult for Elle and Alvarez.  

I loved that this book was not only a suspense, but also a book about finding one's indentity.  Elle has been with one man for a long time, and she lost her sense of self.  Going to work for Hex was her way of finding herself again and getting out of the clutches of a man who treated her horribly.  

Alvarez... oh man... he's yummy.  I loved his dedication to his family, but even he couldn't seem to control everything they did.  Much to his dismay. They all have minds of their own, which is not always a good thing.... 


Kenya Wright always knew she would be famous since the ripe old age of six when she sang the Michael Jackson thriller song in her bathroom mirror. She has tried her hand at many things from enlisting in the Navy for six years as a Persian-Farsi linguist to being a nude model at an art university.

However, writing has been the only constant love in her life. Will she succeed? Of course.

For she has been coined The Urban Fantasy Queen, the Super Iconic Writer of this Age, The Lyrical Genius of Our Generation. Granted, these are all terms coined by her, within the private walls of her bathroom as she still sings the Michael Jackson thriller song.

Kenya Wright currently resides in Miami with her three amazing, overactive children, a supportive, gorgeous husband, and three cool black cats that refuse to stop sleeping on Kenya’s head at night.
