Series: A Corde Noire Novel
Author: Alexandrea Weis
Genre: Dark Erotica
Release Date: August 29, 2016
Ella Winston is a talented chef with a problem--the slightest touch can reveal anyone’s darkest secrets.
Hired to cook for the artist, Ren Plancharde, she struggles to keep her ability under wraps.
After accidently uncovering Ren’s underground activities, the eccentric painter offers Ella a glimpse into his world of pleasure and pain. Intrigued, he decides to make Ella a part of his sinister Corde Noire Society, but his chef isn’t quite ready to commit.
Absolute submission isn’t all Ren wants from the stubborn woman. He has big plans for her gift, too. The only question is … will Ella be willing to give in to his desires when the time comes?
The darkness within can hide a lifetime of secrets.
While this book is part of a series that can be read as a standalone, it wouldn't hurt to read the previous books in the series, simply to have the knowledge of some background aspects of the story. We've already met Ren earlier in the series, and there is much more to him than simply being an artist; he is responsible for training new submissives for his Corde Noire BDSM club. He already knows Ella and has been following her career (of sorts) for a couple of years, and has decided to hire her as his chef. But there's more to it than simply wanting her to cook for him. So what are his ulterior motives: something blatantly sexual, or something sinister? It doesn't take Ella long to discover the other side of Ren, but she soon finds that she likes the BDSM lifestyle. I loved watching the changes in Ren the more he was with Ella.
