Until Next Time.... Tabi
Dark Stranger by Lisa Carlisle is the third titillating installment in the author’s captivating Chateau Seductions series. While I would highly encourage readers to enjoy this series in order, Dark Stranger could be savored as a stand-alone read, if that is your preference.
Dark Stranger chronicles the hard choices faced by Cameron, the daytime manager of the artists’ colony, and by Nadya, a female shifter and healer. Cameron, a human, considers the colony’s founder to be his good friend, and, up to now, his allegiance has always been to the vampire, Antoine Chevalier, who built the Les Beaux Arts on DeRoche Island. Nadya is a wolf shifter and owes allegiance to her pack. But, she cannot deny her attraction to Cameron.
As the story opens, Nadya and some of her pack mates from a neighboring island have come to the Chateau searching for one of their own who is unaccounted for. In the previous installment, Cameron did what we had to do when the missing shifter without cause savagely attacked innocents weeks ago. Now, Cameron and the other residents of the Chateau must defend the students from the danger posed by the wolves. To that end, he attempts to kill Nadya when she appears to be a threat even though he is her mate.
I liked both primary characters. The chemistry between Cameron and Nadya is off-the chart HOT HOT HOT. Cameron has always seemed quiet and geeky. Now readers are treated to his back story and to see a completely different side of him. He and Nadya make a gallant effort to fight the pull between them. After all, they tell themselves that they can’t be mates since they are two different species, or can they? Their story is action-packed, well-paced and humorous. Their romance positively sizzles with sweet and heat.
You should know that this entire series contains graphic sex and language. It is definitely not for young readers. That said, not only did I love this book, I have loved the entire series which, without exception, is teeming with depth and spice. Each has kept me utterly riveted from the first sentence to the last. I would recommend Dark Stranger to anyone who enjoys well-orchestrated scintillating paranormal romance!

Nadya is one of the shifters looking for her pack mate. When she gets taken by Cameron, she fears for her life. That is until she has this feeling about him that she can't shake. She does not want to believe what she is feeling, but the more time she spends with him, she knows what this means. Will Cameron believe her? Or think she is making it all up to save her own life?
I have read the first 2 books in this series and could not wait to get my hands on this one; and I was not disappointed. The thing I love most, is that while this is a story about paranormal creatures, you can still relate to the trial and tribulations that they go through. You can relate to how each character is feeling, even though you are nothing like them.
The struggle between love and family is real in this story. There is no denying the chemistry between Cameron and Nadya, but at points I didn't think that was going to be enough for them to come out of this together. Not only did I love this book, but I loved the entire series. Each book is about a different character at the colony. While we learn their background story, we still get to know the other residents as well. I hope it is not the last we hear of the residents at Les Beaux Arts. Take a chance on this book, you won't be disappointed!
