Eve Silver's debut, DARK DESIRES, is a novel that lovers of wonderfully dark gothic reads are sure to find immensely entertaining and totally enjoyable!
Young Darcie Finch is desperate - she has found her way to Mrs. Feather's establishment, a brothel in the Whitechapel section of East London. Steppy, a man most dear to her heart, had betrayed her in the worst possible way. The Madame of the brothel was Darcie's sister but when Darcie asked her for help she was turned away. Instead of sanctuary the brothel could have held, rather than the back alleys she'd been living in, Darcie was told to go and seek out a man who owed Mrs. Feather a favor -- Dr. Damien Cole. Along, with the admonishment - "Have a care. Steer clear of his work and his secrets. He is a man to fear."
It was a strange household - the Cole residence - except for Dr. Damien Cole himself. Darcie thought of him as a golden angel when he had rescued her a short distance away from the brothel. As...
Darcie was no stranger to the better things of life; a loving family, fine living in clothes and food, but all that changed in a twinkling of an eye and Darcie was thrust into a world of darkness; one of fear, horror and need.

Her tender loving sister had learned to survive by submitting to the lowest of low by using herself and others in giving perverse pleasure to men. Darcie, even in her state of starvation and need runs from this women, a shadow of the sister she once knew, and finds herself in the employ of a Dr. Damien Cole. Was this a dream come true, or a nightmare that would devour her?
Dr.Cole had many secrets but he was drawn to Darcie and she to him as Darcie searches to know who this man truly is. Darcie is an artist, one whose talent to sketch is recognized and needed by our mysterious Dr.Cole who is secretly dissecting dead...
I don't remember when I last enjoyed a book this much! Ms. Silver has a genuine gift with words, and I was completely and utterly hooked from the first paragraph. Told in third person, entirely from the heroine's point of view, the book kept me on edge the entire time, eagerly anticipating the happy ending for characters I really came to care about. Excellent sexual tension! All in all, a fabulous read, and I'm eagerly looking forward to Ms. Silver's next book!
