Genre: Erotic Romance
Twenty-two-year old Amber St. James’s focus is on her education. Her plan is clear—finish the elite San Francisco/Berkeley Medical School program early and become a pediatrician. She hasn’t given much thought to dating or to men in general, until she enrolls in the required human sexuality course…a subject foreign to her for religious and personal reasons.
Tantric yoga practitioner Dash Alexander is Lotus House Yoga’s most sought after sensual teacher. Women flock to him for his unique teaching style, calm nature, and wicked hot body. When he hears of Amber’s plight, he offers to help. The condition? Amber must assist in his couples’ Tantra yoga class as his partner. The sizzling attraction between the two of them is beyond anything Dash has ever experienced…spiritually or otherwise.
Through his teachings, Dash makes love to Amber’s mind and merges with her soul. Physically there’s only one problem, a secret that’s sacred. Amber St. James is a virgin…by choice.
Review by Tara
"Tantra, in general, embodies coming together, being closer in all things. Breathing, physical form, mental connection…everything a person wants with their mate."
This book was filled with love, harmony and sensuality. Audrey makes the world of yoga look like an attainable love story. There is no billionaire boyfriend, no damsel in distress. Audrey writes with passion and purpose, and the relationship between her MC's shows this.
"As it was, I could see her form fluttering, cowering under the weight of my appreciative gaze, making ready to fly away. I wanted her to do the opposite. Respond to me instead, the way a proud swan would. I wanted to set my gaze upon not only her bare body but also her unhindered soul."
All good things come to those that wait....for Amber St. James, Dash Alexander is who she has been waiting for all her life. Saving herself, Amber needs the "one" to be perfect. Understanding, patient and ready to commit to her. Dash lives life with no rules. No boundaries, no expectations, and definitely no marriage. Finding each other seems like fate, but staying together will be the biggest test either Amber or Dash have ever faced.
"His body called to mine on a visceral, carnal level, but it was so much more than that. Almost as if our souls were mingling, dancing in the moonlight, without a care in the world."
I quite enjoyed this book. No being educated at all about yoga, I found Sacred Serenity to be inspiring. Not just for the hot tantric yoga sex, but for the peace and serenity I found in reading about the practice. Sacred Serenity had a realness to it. There was no illusion of storybook love, there was real, brutally honest, passionate love. Let Sacred Serenity take you to a place where you can feel relaxed and inspired.
