Ethan Tierney is infamous in the art world for his shocking paintings-and his reputation for seduction. He's found a perfect subject in Kiki Dion, an art historian with kinky fantasies of her own. Now, behind the closed doors of his historic estate, they're making those fantasies come true- and bringing something else to life as well...
A century ago, the house's late occupants recorded the details of their consuming affair in explicit letters that have become Kiki and Ethan's erotic obsession. But the ghosts of the past are not at rest. They've been aroused to bring closure to a sensual mystery of the past, to take possession of the warm and willing bodies of Kiki and Ethan, and to teach them the true meaning of undying ecstasy.

Through Kiki and Ethan's discovery of each other, they embark on an old mystery of two lost lovers and seek to find a way to reunite them.
I'm not really sure what I expected out of this book. However, it did not disappoint! I loved how the character development between the ghosts and the main characters seemed to go hand-in-hand. Even though the audience is not shown too much of Javier and Nicole, they are mirrored in Kiki and Ethan. Something about that connection made the book more interesting and deep.
The supernatural element added a whole different dimension to the book. While the new lovers were trying to work out the kinks of their D/s relationship, the letters and the mystery really drew them together. Also, I liked the pseudo-creepy feel it gave the book. Even though the ghosts were not seeking to harm the couple, it just lent a spine-tingling feel to the mood. Further, as weird as it sounds, the ghosts also served as a pseudo-background and setting.
I felt that this book was a pretty nice introduction into the lifestyle. First of all, it didn't throw huge things at the reader. Further, it seemed to be rather gentle it the portrayal. Instead of seeming like some kinky, taboo, and sexual depraved past-time, the author was able to show a different side of BDSM.
The letters from Nicole had me tearing through this book and unable to put it down! It was interesting how they showed the BDSM lifestyle at the turn of the century.
All in all, I really enjoyed this book. Of all of the erotica and BDSM-type books I have read, this might be one of my favorites!
Cherie Feather has a way of pulling you in with the back stories and mixing them with the main in to make the book really interesting. While I liked the the main story I wanted more about Nicole West and Javier Curtis(the back story couple). Their story was too short for me.
The sex in the book was hot, sensual and erotic. If you don't like some heavy BDSM the book may not be for you. For me this book didn't hook me like the first one but is worth the read. I am waiting for her next book Masquerade about their friend Amber Pontiero who will be in a m/f/m story.
