Title: The Sleeping Serpent 
Authors : Luna Saint Claire & Virginia Bowen 


As arousing as 50 Shades, twisted as Gone Girl, and tortured as Wuthering Heights
Whether by free will or fate, Luna’s encounter with Nico provokes a storm that shatters her perceptions of identity, duty, morality, and self-worth. The storm didn’t blow in from the outside. She was the storm. Its turbulence within her, forcing her to confront the darkness, uncovers her secrets and her pain.  


BOOK DESCRIPTION 
Luna Saint Claire has a loving husband and an enviable career as a Hollywood costume designer. Still, something is gnawing at her. Bored with her conventional and circumscribed existence, she feels herself becoming invisible. When she meets Nico Romero, a charismatic yoga guru, his attentions awaken her passions and desires. Dangerous, but not in a way that scares her, he makes her feel as if anything is possible. Infatuated, she becomes entangled in Nico’s life as he uses his mesmerizing sexuality to manipulate everyone around him in his pursuit of women, wealth, and celebrity.
Immensely erotic and psychologically captivating, The Sleeping Serpent is the compelling story of a woman’s obsession with a spellbinding guru and the struggle to reclaim her life. At its heart, it is a painfully beautiful exposition of unconditional love that makes us question what we truly want.
Compelling...a gripping masterful account of the seductive manipulations of a sociopath.

“She realized in an instant that being around him awakened her, stirring the sediment that had long ago settled at the bottom of her well. He made her feel a part of him...of something larger, and somehow more alive.”

Review: Sleeping Serpent by Luna Saint Claire & Virginia Bowen

The Sleeping Serpent is a gripping debut of compelling prose so powerful it will ingrain it's web of deceit and narcissism into the deepest, most precious and sacred parts of your soul. You will question everything. Everything! BUT, by the time you reach that point it will be too late. You won't be able to escape the literary grip this book will hold over you. A true testament to the author's talent. Luna Saint Claire is certainly one author to keep your eyes on! Wow!

Enticingly erotic, you will be lured in from the very first chapter. Nico is a man you do not say no to.
You obey.
You oblige.
You pray you won't be the one to pay the price of his bidding.
Lover or victim? Only time will tell.
Manipulated by the Amaru- the sacred serpent.

"Once a narcissist has you entangled in their web, the bond is difficult to break. Just like a vampire story, you are inexorably bound. Bewitched. Compelled. Because they are the emotionally unstable, being in a relationship with a narcissist is like a rollercoaster ride. He is charming and passionate, yet nothing satisfies."

A mindf*ck for the senses, of the senses. Just. AAAGH!!! This story had me so twisted inside out and upside down, unable to differentiate fiction from real life. I was in knots!!! I loved every minute of it. Sometimes it pays to venture outside one's reading comfort zone and indulge in the darkness lurking in the literary shadows.

"It's not life he craves, it's life-force."
