Rowan Cassidy likes to be in charge—especially in her personal life. As a mistress at Club Privé, the most exclusive bondage and 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.

    " I loved this book....it is one of my favorites of Eden Bradley. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joanna | 1/26/2014

    " The top of the book page says "If you loved Fifty Shades of Grey . . . get ready to enter The Dark Garden." As if!!!! This book was awful! The plot was good but the story was dragging...I mean seriously? Could Rowan cry anymore? Get a grip woman...this book was just bleh...didn't get excited about it...wasn't much of a bdsm...i would not recommend this book to anyone...a big snooze fest. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacie | 1/26/2014

    " It was beautifully written. I found myself drawn to April and Decker more than the main characters but both storylines were great. A really wonderful representation of the lifestyle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kacie | 1/21/2014

    " Very good book, looking forward to reading another one by this author. Just enough erotic to keep interesting but not too much. This subject matter sometimes gets a little dark but this book was not "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 1/10/2014

    " good read, believable characters. i understood where Rowan was coming from and her feelings. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 12/30/2013

    " Wasn't sure what to expect from this one but truly enjoyed this BDSM ride. I agree wit other reviews I could have used a little more, but I never want a book I enjoy to end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 shantae lovell | 12/27/2013

    " nice book no complaints. i was told that it would be like "fifty shades of grey" but i would have to disagree. other then that it was ok. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenya Wright | 12/22/2013

    " Beautiful. Hot. Loved the prose. It made me feel like i east learning about BDSM. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lorraine | 12/19/2013

    " Didn't really get going until the last 4 chapters. It was ok but would recommend other books above this one. I wouldn't read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shanna | 11/30/2013

    " more to come.....i have to think about this one "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alycia | 11/2/2013

    " It was good. It was definitely a steamy book. It followed three characters which at time got a little confusing, but all in all it was a good quick read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Beth | 10/31/2013

    " I've read the Fifty Shades of Gray trilogy and Bared to You by Sylvia Day. This one was nowhere as good as those books. So cringingly cheesy that it belongs in the bottom end of the Harlequin genre. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen Bonner | 10/26/2013

    " I really had fun reading this book! I do have to say though, someone told me that it's better than 50 Shades, and it is NOT better. Good book though :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hillarey | 6/25/2013

    " I just finished reading this book. loved it!! great insight into bdsm and the emotions involved. this is the first Eden Bradley book I'Ve read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 5/19/2013

    " I wasn't really impressed with this book. I didin't even finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lindsey | 4/21/2013

    " There was just something missing to me in this book. Wasn't bad but wasn't great. Bored me a lot and not sure why I finished reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 4/1/2013

    " 3.5 stars, actually. I enjoyed the book, but it took a while for me to get into it. I actually enjoyed the secondary story more than the primary, but fans of bdsm erotica will enjoy this sexy book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 12/8/2012

    " Whhhheeeewww! Need to stop panting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Macdonald | 12/5/2012

    " more action than 50 shades but on same scale. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 (just) Trixie | 10/25/2012

    " This book just didn't grab me. It was ok, just not really something that pulled me in. I couldn't really get into the characters very much. Despite the fact that there was a lot of inner turmoil, things just felt superficial to me. "
