Hearts in Darkness Duet Book 1
Makenna James thinks her day can’t get any worse, until she finds herself stranded in a pitch-black elevator with a complete stranger. Distracted by a phone call, the pin-striped accountant catches only a glimpse of a dragon tattoo on his hand before the lights go out.
Caden Grayson is amused when a harried redhead dashes into his elevator fumbling her bags and cell phone. His amusement turns to panic when the power fails. Despite his piercings, tats, and vicious scar, he’s terrified of the dark and confined spaces. Now, he’s trapped in his own worst nightmare.
One pitch-black elevator…
To fight fear, they must reach out and open up. With no preconceived notions based on looks to hold them back, they discover just how much they have in common. In the warming darkness, attraction grows and sparks fly, but will they feel the same when the lights come back on?
Most of this book takes place in a dark, stuck elevator. It reminded me of speed dating only in the dark. Awkward at first, then a gradual sharing of selves. in the form of twenty questions. The intimate environment enabled Makenna and Caden to share their most private secrets.
Just a little peek into that darkness:
Lust blossomed in that elevator as well as friendship. I loved the gradual progression of events, the discoveries made by them with the sensory depravation of the complete darkness.
A tale woven in the dark and then moved into the light. A very sensual read that touches the heart and the mind.
