A flash of green eyes, and then…he was gone.
Mysterious, secluded, powerful, seductive.
Mark Rich shows up in a gallery, and then at a party, and then in Saturday’s dreams.
Wealthy? Yes. Sexy? God, yes.
But who is he? Ostensibly, he appears to be a jack-of-all-trades – a multifaceted Renaissance man.
Her artistic heart will follow him to the depths of his realm, to a world of beauty, art and desire in which she so desperately wants entry.
But Mark has a dark secret…deeper than any shadow Saturday has ever encountered.
Blinded by a craving she has never known, will she find the strength to remove the mask and look past her heart into a reality that may shatter her?
Saturday Blake has uncovered one of Mark Rich's biggest secrets.
Betrayed, frightened and hurt, she tries to move on, believing that the game is over, but she is sorely mistaken.
There's another player in this game...and they won't play by any rules.
And Mark's not done with her yet...
We are so excited to share this sexy mystery duet with you! It’s a full length standalone that contains two novellas and one complete story!
Behind The Blindfold Part 1
Omg this book! Behind The Blindfold wasn’t anything that I was expecting but I absolutely enjoyed it. This book was a short but intriguing read. This story wasn’t your typical romance. It was sexy, mysterious, and it had a hint of suspense. It captured my attention quickly and kept me turning the pages. I wanted to know more about this sexy stranger that was Mark Rich.
The first time Saturday (yes that’s her name) and Mark meet they don’t even speak to one another. Yet, there is something about hearing Mark’s voice and seeing his commanding nature that has her wanting to know more about this dark haired, green eyed stranger.
Saturday is twenty-four, single, and enjoying life in New York. She’s works as a tour guide at the art gallery, Clairvoyage, and she works a second job as a waitress and bartender. Saturday loves art and painting is her passion. She hopes to have her paintings showcased in a gallery.
“Saturday was drowning: drowning in a sea-green iries. She should be afraid, she knew, but she wasn’t.”
She doesn’t officially meet Mark until weeks later when she sees him at the art gallery where she works. When she finds out Mark is part of the art world, they easily strike up conversation. There is an attraction between her and Mark and Saturday finds herself quickly falling for him. Mark is mysterious, intense and sexy. The more she runs into him, the more she starts to think and dream of him.
His “kiss” caressed every part of her, overwhelmed her, and exposed her. She felt as if she had been laid bare, as if she was making love with her mouth.”
Their attraction they have for each other was intense and sensual and they quickly fall into a relationship. Mark was encouraging of Saturday’s art career and he had a bit of a possessive streak. They shared so much with each other but Mark is holding something back. He won’t tell her what he does for a living or and sometimes he disappears days at a time. Saturday also starts feeling as if she’s being watched. Despite his secrets, Saturday begins to fall in love with Mark and that causes Mark to pull back from her until one day he is gone without a trace.
“Passion. Pain. You should embrace them, Saturday. They are honesty. They are truth. They are all that matter.”
I really enjoyed this book. There was a suspenseful quality to it that kept me interested. I wanted to know more about Mark and I couldn’t tell whether he was good or bad or just somewhere in between. I really liked Saturday. She was fun, spunky, and but she could be vulnerable. She didn’t always make the best choices but she owned up to her decisions. This book left me with questions and I’m anxious for the answers. I cannot wait until part two.
Behind The Blindfold Part 2
Ever since I finished Behind The Blindfold, I’ve wanted answers. No, scratch that, I needed answers and this book didn’t disappoint. This book was fast paced but the flow,
intensity, and the twist and turns kept me engaged.
“He terrified her…and thrilled her…like no on she had ever know.”
Behind The Blindfold: Uncovered starts off just a few months after
the end of part one.
Saturday isn’t the same girl as before. She’s desperately trying to move on after her last night with Mark but she’s scared, nervous, and she’s questioning everything that she knew about Mark. It’s made her hesitant to trust anyone….
She’s focusing more on her art, work, and even trying to date. Even though she wants to move on, Mark isn’t ready to let go, and part of her still wants him, but there is so much she doesn’t know.
“Let’s end this right now, Saturday. No more running. I’m here now. I’m never running again…and neither are you..”
When she’s finally confronted by Mark, she given the opportunity to get the answers that she needs, but will it be enough and after she knows is she going to want to stay?
I don’t want to give anything else away but this story had some unexpected twist and turns. I was anxious to see what was going to happen next. It was both suspenseful and sexy and I enjoyed the flow and pacing of this book. Natalie did a fantastic job of writing an entertaining story.
My only complaint with this book is that I wanted more!! I would to see more from their story but I thoroughly enjoyed this ending.
