Today we welcome Ella Frank to our blog as she celebrates her new release Blind Obsession which releases on April 9th!
Obsession, defined as the domination of one’s thoughts or feelings by a persistent idea, image or desire….
Chantel Rosenberg’s passion for music and life had never shone brighter than the time she spent in Bordeaux France. It’s a time when feelings arose and desires ran deep, a time that fundamentally changed her life.
A man living in seclusion, Phillipe Tibideau is haunted and plagued by memories he cannot disregard. Choosing to live a quiet life in his Chateau surrounded by the vineyards of France, he’s left his passion for art behind.
However, the time has arrived to tell his side of a tale. A tale that has depicted him as a ‘beautiful monster’ and he’s finally allowing someone close.
Close enough to ask questions. Questions he’s not sure he wants to answer. Questions about her.
For up and coming journalist Gemma Harris, the pursuit of truth is what drives her and when a job of a lifetime presents itself there is nothing in the world that will stop her from taking it.
Even if it does mean leaving her home for several months to stay at Chateau Tibideau, with him.
This is a story of what happens when three passionate lovers collide and the desire for truth, art and music merge.
Chateau Tibideau is a place full of unanswered questions, dark sinful desire and a beauty so hauntingly sad it will have you wondering how you will ever leave the same…
This book was so powerful that I had to step away for a day or so before I could wrap my head around how to describe my reactions to it. This book moved me – the range of emotions Ms. Frank gets the reader to feel was masterful.
Blind Obsession was a powerful read, you could feel the obsession on many levels. This book was hot, really hot, dark in both an emotional and physical way and it left me haunted by many of the scenes and emotions in the book. Well done, Ms. Frank!
Blind Obsession tells the story of Phillipe Tibideau an artist living in seclusion in his Chateau in the vineyards of France. Phillipe is tortured by the events surrounding Chantel Rosenberg the last woman who lived in the Chateau with him.
Gemma Harris is an American Journalist invited out by Phillipe; her goal to get the truth behind the event swirling around in the media.
Phillipe is a tortured soul and the more the reader learns about this man and his past, the more you feel so deeply connected to him. Ms. Frank pulls you in, wraps you around his heart and will have you hoping against hope that this man can find a way past the traumatic loss that leads his life to this point.
As Gemma unravels the story of Chantel and Phillipe in search of the truth, the line between her and them blurs not just for the reader but for Gemma herself. Ms. Frank allows the reader to become immersed with Gemma as she sinks further into Phillipe’s sphere.
As the story develops and these souls interact, the relationship the three of them develop is merged with music, lust, love and yes Obsession on many levels.
I hope you enjoy the ride Ms. Frank takes you on, as I said above, you will ride an emotional roller coaster – one very true to the characters constructed through the book.
Hats off to the author for telling a compelling, emotional and real feel story about a man who is tortured by his past and whose journey may continue to haunt you even after you put Blind Obsession down.
Please note this book as an Erotic Novel not an Erotic Romance.
I adore Ms. Frank’s writing and I look forward to more wonderful reads in the future.
