When her best friend takes her to a BDSM club in San Francisco Devin Delaney meets the beautiful, mysterious and commanding Shaye Vincent. The wealthy, enigmatic man takes her on a journey into the darker side of sex, and it’s addictive. He’s addictive.
At Sanctuary Devin’s kinkiest fantasies—and her emotions—shift into overdrive. But she’ll have to face old demons in order to give up control, and Shaye will have to walk through his own darkness. Can pain and desire bring them together? Or will it tear them apart?
Sensual, seductive and deeply moving—If you liked the Fifty Shades trilogy, you’ll fall in love with Sanctuary.
**SANCTUARY was previously released in 2007-now newly edited and with over 30 pages of new material!
In this story Eden Bradley weaves such a beautifully written and intriguing story that I couldn’t help but be enthralled. She had me falling in love with Shaye and wanting to be Devin within the first few pages of the book. I can honestly say I don’t pick up a book, whether it is a full length or novella, just because it has BDSM elements. Usually it’s just the opposite. Eden Bradley has just taught me the error of my ways 🙂
This wasn’t a book about BDSM or the kink club scene, but a love story that begins and ultimately ends there. By the end of the story I could actually feel the emotions the author has so clearly written of the heroin, as well as the hero.
I think the mark of a good book is when you can truly see through the written words exactly what the author is showing us. But the mark of a truly excellent book, and one I plan to read again, is when I actually get that burning sensation in the eyes and a runny nose as I fight to not cry. Sanctuary was just that book that has definitely made it to the list of my favorite reads.
Thank you Eden Bradley for showing me the beautiful side of BDSM that truly had me wanting to be like your character lol 🙂
