Publisher's Summary

Sex and emotions: a dangerous combination. Despite the weakness in her legs and the fear of what was yet to come, she rose to meet her Master. She knew better than to hesitate when given orders. Instinctively she dropped her chin, stealing her gaze away from his eyes and letting them rest closer to his waist.
"None of that," he said, taking her hands firmly and placing them at her sides. Then he reached down and undid the button of her jeans. He unzipped them. Alex breathed in sharply, feeling herself getting instantly excited by the brush of his hand on her stomach.
Then slowly he dropped to his knees and pulled her jeans down to her ankles. Alex closed her eyes and felt his mouth kiss her stomach and hipbones. His hands softly caressed her lower back, moving downward, tracing the lines of her hips and thighs. "Spread your legs."

What a tale!

It was a very good read. Even better than the first book as we got to see more of all the characters and how they developed their relationships. It was also gun to see how Elliot (Sir) evolved from a dominant master to a caring lover. All in all. I really enjoyed it. The narration was also really professional and made the story so real. Great book all round. Hopefully the author decides to add a third book.

The PERFECT Sequel!

Would you consider the audio edition of Darkness Illuminated to be better than the print version?

I prefer audiobooks to written books because I can listen while I'm doing housework! Although, I must say that I didn't get very much housework done while listening to this. It was so gripping I had to keep sitting down to take it all in. There is so much heat and DRAMA in this sequel. I enjoyed every minute of it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Francois. He's the calm and steady one who really offsets the erratic behavior of Alex and Sir. He just seems like a big teddy bear who wants the best for the couple. In a way, I think of him in almost the same position as the reader. <br/><br/>I also cannot get enough of Sir/Elliott... Even when he's being difficult and mean, something about him is just irresistible. He has this loving heart but he's damaged... I love each time we learn more about him and his past... and I can definitely see why Alex loves him so much.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed, I cried, I got angry, I felt joyous... you name it! It's such a gripping book, you can really get swept away with the mood of it all. Such a different take on erotic fiction... there are plenty of sexy moments, don't get me wrong, but there's also a lot of content. Alice Wright is an intelligent writer who seems to always strike the perfect balance between fantasy and reality.

Any additional comments?

This is really a superb sequel to Her Secret Submission. Thrilling, suspenseful, hot and heavy! And the ending... WOW! <br/><br/>I enjoyed this one even more than the first book and really cannot wait to get into the next instalment.
