The first in a brand-new series by erotic romance sensation Nicole Camden, featuring sexy magicians and ladies whose desires tempt them ever deeper into a world they don’t quite understand...
Billionaire tech genius and inventor Milton Shaw never had life easy. Losing his brother at an early age, his only escape was into the world of magic, studying Houdini and perfecting the art of sleight of hand. Too smart to fit in, and isolated from his peers, he vowed that one day he would be so powerful that no one could touch him.
Stern doctor Regina Burke hates nothing more than attention and trickery. In fact, she went into science to feel in control of her world. Yet when her work brings her into contact with the sexy tech superstar Milton Shaw, she finds her body warring with her idealism…and her desires shifting from unlocking the magician’s secrets to unlocking his heart. -Goodreads
Both Milton Shaw and the lovely Regina Burke are no strangers to life shattering pain. His suffered at the death of his brother, William, after a courageous battle with childhood cancer. Hers brought about by the shame, public scorn, and financial ruin of her family when her father, Carter Burke, was convicted of embezzling millions of dollars from unsuspecting investors in an elaborate Ponzi scheme.
While time may not have succeeded in completely healing the wounds of their respective pasts, it has given them the drive, fire and ingenuity needed to craft brilliant futures. His as a magician, philanthropist, and owner of a billion dollar software conglomerate. Hers as a respected children's oncologist.
When Milton, or in this case, The Amazing Shaw, finds himself face to face with the snark and fire of the beautiful doctor; while performing for the young patients of Boston Children's Hospital. It is quite clear from the start, that if given half the chance...these two can and will make spectacular magic of the sensual sort.
That is if he can manage to heal the good doctor's heart of the hurts she has suffered in her ever present past.
Authoress, Nicole Camden, takes readers on an emotionally sensual journey in this her first offering of the Billionaire Tricksters of Boston series.
With both Milton and his leading lady, Regina, struggling to make something good from their unfortunate pasts. They succeed in grabbing reader hearts right away. When you add their easy banter and mind-blowing chemistry into the mix...the result is nothing less than utterly readable.
Topping the list of the many things that this story does right, is the fact that these two otherwise cautious people are allowed to act on impulse when it comes to their baser desires. There is no initial denial of attraction to have to work through, before the erotic fun is allowed to begin.
Further sweetening this already delectably tantalizing pot of story craft, is the allure and wonder of magic and the comic relief provided by a colorful supporting cast.
The care taken to make Regina and Milton whole characters, with lives, interests, and meaningful interactions outside of each other and the bedroom, is apparent from page one. In fact, half the fun of the read is finding out how the two manage to fit their new 'relationship' into their already full lives.
Not to worry though, it seems that scheduling time for 'relating' is not a problem for these two. The erotic scenes found in this tale are relayed with such vivid description, that readers experience each smoldering glance, searing caress, and earth-shattering orgasm on a visceral level.
In short, if you are a reader who like a little cute with your kink, a lot of story with your seduction, and some gorgeous geek with your freak; The Lady Vanishes, is the book that will make any doubts that you have about erotic and/or literary satisfaction DISAPPEAR!

I appreciate the fact that the characters are 'fleshed out' - so to speak. It seems a lot of erotica is a lot of sex and very little story, so I usually steer clear. Not that there's anything wrong with a lot of sex; I'd just rather be doing than reading about it, if you know what I mean. ;) This one sounds like it has possibilities!ReplyDelete
