New York Times and USA Today best selling series
When Talia crashes a masked party, the charismatic and dominant Mister Black is the one man who can either help or expose her. Neither can deny their attraction, but what happens when one hot night together turns into so much more...
We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective.
My person is Mister Black.
I didn't know him by that name when I first met him.
I didn't know him at all, but the impression he left behind was just as powerful as the name I call him today.
He is Black: a deadly enforcer and masterful seducer.
I am Red: a justice bleeder and willing participant.
Together we are passion. Colors colliding through each other's lives.
When our secrets converge in a passionate encounter, stepping out of the shadows just might be worth the risk.

Michelle (Gold Shimmer), who also writes as Patrice Michelle, entices and frustrates in this erotic first installment of her In the Shadows new adult series. Young teenager Talia has already lived a rough life including being forced to be a drug courier by her mother's boyfriend when she meets Mr. Black as she's fleeing an attempted mugging. Their first contact is brief, but Mr. Black still manages to give Talia dreams of a better future. When their paths cross eight years later, as college student Talia is trying to interview Mr. Black's sister, Talia doesn't know quite how to react other than by sleeping with him. The characters show powerful chemistry and the plotting is complete with tantalizing bits of backstory, but the story ends on a cliffhanger and the entire novella raises more questions than it answers. That will undoubtedly annoy some readers even as they rush to download the next installments. (BookLife)
