If you loved Fifty Shades of Grey . . . get ready to enter The Dark Garden. A deliciously potent tale of one woman’s quest for self-discovery. Rowan Cassidy likes to be in charge—especially in her personal life. As a mistress at Club Privé, the most exclusive bondage/S & M club on the West Coast, Rowan can live out her dominant fantasies safely, and with complete control—until the night Christian Thorne walks in. Self-confident and sophisticated, he’s a natural dominant if Rowan’s ever seen one. Yet she can’t stop thinking about him and imagining his touch. Christian has returned home, hoping to break free from his dissatisfaction and malaise—and discovers the cure in Rowan. He’s dying to get his skilled hands on her and watch her surrender, to unlock the mystery of her that captivates him. Determined to be her master, he makes Rowan a daring proposition: give herself over to him for thirty days. Rowan finds Christian’s offer terrifying—and impossible to resist. But abandoning herself to Christian’s power might be more than she can handle. . . . Or it might be the realization of her true nature and the dark garden within her. There will be only one way to find out. And once the game has begun, there’s no turning back.

more to come.....i have to think about this one
This was a good story. I have to say I was more interested in Decker's story than I was in Rowan's story. Both stories were equally good. Rowan is a domme, who is struggling with a past and I enjoyed the dynamics of the relationship between her and Christian, it was really tough for her but Christia...
I've read a few erotic romances lately, and really enjoyed this one. The main characthers are not billionaires as are many of these books! I liked the characthers. Christian couldn't help but fall for her and obviously she couldn't him. I did find it a bit much that April got happy ever after too...
The Dark Garden was originally published in the US in 2007 and has just been released for the first time in the UK. The story has been recommended for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey (FSoG) but the only real similarities between the two books are that they both have a main character called Christian an...
