Stein doesn’t quite know what to expect once she arrives at
Damien Saul’s late night dinner “party.” Especially, since
sex seemed to be the main course on the menu. Damien is the
High Priest of the Order of Amber Dawn, which places him in
a different category altogether. It doesn’t make him less
dangerous or sexy though. Jennifer is instantly captivated
by him, so when he reappears, it’s next to impossible to
turn him away, no matter what it might cost her.
The High Priest of Amber Dawn caught my
attention right away. Thankfully, Damien Saul is nothing
like Aleister Crowley, although his lifestyle reflects that
indulging in orgies is just as common to him as the long
dead infamous occultist.
little story is the perfect framework for Jennifer and
Damien’s romance. I liked the surprise of discovering
Jennifer’s “occupation”, too. The incident that brings this
unlikely pair closer together is the right kind of glue to
cement them beyond scorching sex. Not that there’s
anything wrong with a stormy interlude between the sheets.
Keeping in mind that emotions do require added incentive to
forge a lasting bond between two people, I can say the
author does this relationship justice in that regard.
There’s definitely room to expand upon. I hope that Ms.
Marquis will explore things further in another installment
featuring Jennifer and Damien and his friend, Karl.
