Shadow of a Man:



The pursuit of love can sometimes be a matter of life and death…

Veronica Level possesses the ability to read minds—but only during intense bouts of danger. It is within these perilous situations that she encounters Christopher Altman, a mysterious, centuries-old vigilante transformed into a dark, enigmatic shadow, who has always been there to protect her.

Despite the menacing circumstances surrounding their every encounter, neither Veronica nor Christopher can deny their desire for one another, especially after Veronica’s abilities show her the seductively handsome man hidden within the mystifying shadow. But just how far will they have to go in order to break the curse and be together without jeopardizing Veronica’s safety, or more importantly, her life?


Shadow of a Man is Available Now!


Excerpt:


Veronica rolled over onto her back and stared up at the ceiling. Cold tears fell from the corners of her eyes and slid down her temples, landing somewhere along her hairline. She was exhausted. This situation with the dark shadow had completely consumed her. As she struggled to release him from the evil curse, she’d fallen behind on her magazine deadlines, stopped taking proper care of herself, and had practically cut off all contact with her friends. Veronica knew that they were worried about her, but there was no way she could share her ordeal with them.

She closed her eyes and held her head in her hand despairingly, drifting off into a deep slumber. Every muscle in her body slowly began to relax. She was overcome with a sense of peace. Her mind entered a dreamlike state, and a tingling sensation swept over her toes and the tops of her feet. The feeling slowly made its way up Veronica’s calves, causing her to stir and moan softly. The touch of gentle fingertips caressed every inch of her. Veronica’s taut nipples vibrated while an intense desire ignited deep within her. She spread her legs, relishing what she knew was her shadow’s [BV1] [DW2] presence. And then, just when she felt an erect force press between her thighs, a loud thud awakened her.

Veronica sat straight up in bed, her breath short. She turned her ear toward the door. There was complete silence. She sat still for a few moments, waiting to see if there would be more noise. When there wasn’t, she assumed that her dog, Mona, had knocked something over. She lay back down and closed her eyes, hoping that her sweet dream would pick up right where it had left off.
But then Veronica heard the wooden floor in her living room let out a long, shrill creak. Mona’s tiny paws weren’t heavy enough to make that sort of sound. As her dog gave a loud bark, Veronica’s mind began to buzz with someone else’s devious thoughts...

Hello everyone! My name is Denise, and I am a lover of romance, happy endings, and the art of storytelling. I used to cry as a three-year old child when my mother read to me because I so badly wanted to read the books myself! Once I learned, I constantly had my nose in a novel (especially the ones I’d sneak from my mom’s bookshelf). I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and draw inspiration from Chicago, the city where I was born and raised, as well as Los Angeles, which is one of my favorite places in the world. I’ve published several books and short stories, and I’m an avid ghostwriter and editor. When I’m not sitting behind my computer, you can find me in a movie theater, on a tennis court, watching true crime television or chatting on social media.

Speaking of social media, I’d love to connect with you! Here’s where you can find me:
