I'm not usually a fan of books that are too dark, but I absolutely LOVED Eve Silver's "Dark Desires."  I also enjoyed Dark Prince and His Dark Kiss.

However, then I started reading "Seduced by a Stranger" and stopped reading less than a third of the way into the book.  The graphic depictions of torture became to much for me.  When the author depicted the supposed "Hero" as a prostitute-torturing and killing serial killer, that was over the line for me.  There is no possible way to redeem a character who is a serial killer.  This last book made me so sick to my stomach I nearly threw up.  I like romance, not horror.  I tolderated the horror in the other books because of the suspenseful wriiting and good story.


I've stopped reading anything of hers completely now.  Is that it for her?  A handful of decent gothic romances and then she goes over the edge into graphic horror?  I don't understand the rave reviews Seduced by a Stanger has gotten.  These must be horror fans, not romance fans becsause the horror seriously predominates.


Any thoughts on this one, ladies?

I read her first book and never picked up another one. I just knew she wasn't going to be an author for me.
