I am so glad that I read this book. I was a little nervous that people were going to die all over in this book but I am very pleased to say that that was not the case. Sebastian is beautiful and intense and I love him. He put a lot of work into Sam, pursuing, training, and all that which I was happy to see. I really like Sam, I had a lot of respect for her and everything that she did in this book which was what I didn't feel for the main character of the first book in the series. This book is wh ...more

This book is refreshingly different and completely captivating, I was hooked from the moment I started reading. This is the 2nd book in the Corde Noir Series and there are some familiar characters and surroundings. Once again this story takes place in The Shallows, an apartment building in New Orleans with lots of character, a troublesome history...and a pulse.

Sam Woods is an ICU nurse, she is strong, dedicated, funny and a complete klutz. But, there is so much more to Sam than anyone knows, she

I loved book one Dark Perception so I had no hesitation into jumping into this story.

This series is based in an apartment building where as you can imagine there are new faces and we also get to revisit other characters which I always love.

In Dark Attraction we read Sam and Sebastian's story and what a story it is.
Sam is a nurse who has the ability to speak to ghosts.
Sebastian is an alpha male who gets what he wants and he wants Sam.
I really liked these characters.

I was hooked from the moment I started reading. This is the 2nd book in the Corde Noir Series and can be read as a standalone. This is my first book from Ms. Weis, and I enjoyed every word.

I really enjoyed reading another book by Alexandrea Weis. She is always surprising me. I have come to love this series and can't wait for more to come. I kinda knew who Doug was through out the book but wasn't 100 percent til the middle. I loved his character but my heart went out to the man he truly was and the man who he was trying so hard to become because of the club. I was caught by surprise at the ending but loved how things turned out for the lead characters. I dont want to say too much b ...more

WOW! I love book one in this series, Dark Perception and Dark Attraction is as good as, if not better than, the first. I know that sounds strange coming from me because I usually complain about series but Alexandrea Weis weaves her tales so beautifully they are fun to read.

The Corde Noire series’ setting is the same throughout, New Orleans, and the characters live in the same apartment complex The Shallows. Some characters reappear from the previous book (nice) and a big plus no cliffhanger.

Some secrets are better kept to yourself. At least that is what Sam thinks she ought to do with her gift to interact with the dead. If you like your romances dark, mysterious, and with a dash of thrills, look no further than this series.

Sam is a nurse, and as such, she can tell when the time has come for one of the ICU patients to move on to the great beyond. At least she is able to give hope to those who need it and a send off to those who are peacefully guided on. The problem is she does not p

Just when you thought things couldn't get any better, along comes book two. I absolutely adore this author's writing. Her characters are well developed and extremely interesting. Of course there is the hot executive and the gorgeous woman who has caught his lustful interest, but they are much more than that when it comes to the secrets they each carry. I also love the paranormal touch that her characters possess which is most fitting for the atmosphere of New Orleans. The "gift" that the female ...more

HOLY COW Book two of the Corde Norie series definitely does not disappoint. Dark Attraction is 100% just that - a dark attraction. Sebastian Dane is a gentleman who is rich, powerful, sexy and a Dominate who treats his submissives with the utmost of personal care. He knows what he wants, how he wants it and simply gets it. Until he meets Sam - the nurse caring for his mother while she was in the hospital.

From the first book I read by Alexandrea Weis, I have been hooked. I love her writing style and her inherent wit and humor. I also love the fact that so many of her books are set in New Orleans, one of my very favorite cities to visit. Dark Attraction is the first book I've read by Ms. Weis that adds a paranormal twist. At first I thought this element might impact my enjoyment of the book, but I found that Sam's "gift" of communicating with the dead added quite a lot to the story. Ghosts pop in ...more

It was very disheartening that I didn't enjoy this book. I really wanted too. There were parts of the book when I started reading that I thought wow this is going to be a nice plot twist, but it came up short. The main female character, sam, had some unique characteristics that at the beginning made her very interesting, but then it just wasn't. She can sense ghosts and able to talk to them, but then that whole scenario is thrown out becau

This was a unique and exciting book. It has darker, mysterious aspects, but also the sexy side of things. I like how the author portrayed the main character, as she was stubborn, which made the book flow well. I haven't read the first book in the series, as this is the second, but I found it easy to jump right in. I am, however, going to go back and read the first book, so I don't miss out on any of this great story.

Very good book about two people who grow and change as love blossoms between them. Both are in denial that they want more than just a Dom/sub relationship. Especially Sebastian. The characters have depth, so you become invested in their lives. The book blurb gives you the gist of how the story begins. to tell more would be to give things away. The relationship between the two main characters drives the book and makes you turn the page.

The paranormal side of this book is handled with a light touc

This is Dark but has some intense moments of light and love that it had me hooked from the first few pages. Sam's gift was an interesting component of this story and one that I have not come across especially when involving a BDSM line of sexual encounters but strange as it sounds it actually really worked for me. I put that down to Sam and her characteristics and then also Doug who is very acceptable of all things out of the ordinary but then his sexual and dominating needs probably make him mo ...more

This story has an intriguing way of pulling you in. There's mystery, suspense, lust, the unknown. The writing will bring the magic of New Orleans into play, even some black magic. The characters are written with a simple complexity that will wind around until you have no idea who to trust and who to despise. You will laugh, cry and curse, but will find the story full of excitement! You wil

This book had a lot of potential as both a great suspense novel but also a great romance novel. This however was not my cup of tea. The main character Sam is a ICU nurse with a special ability- she can see and communicate with ghosts and the first part of the book is centered around this. I was really excited about the plot in the beginning and the author also cranks up the mystery with a ghost that keeps returning to Sam for help. But then a new neighbor moves in next door to Sam and most of th ...more

Sam Woods is hiding a secret from the world of the living. She has the ability to speak to ghosts. Doug is a mouth watering alpha male, that is determined to have Sam. And even though Sam is trying to keep her secret just that, she's attracted by Doug, so when he offers her a taste of his world, she agrees. I'm very addicted to this series already, but my reviews will be short, because the layers of twists and turns are so amazing, I will give things away on accident if I type too much. Alexandr ...more

Sebastian is a Dom through and through and he will stop at nothing to catch the eye of the determined nurse taking care of his mother, she never notices him, and THAT is more of a turn on than anything to Sebastian.
Sam loves being a nurse but she is missing something in her life, when a mysterious neighbor moves in, he offers something Sam would never think of experiencing but when a secret com

Samantha, was a confident nurse, however she was not as sure of herself as a woman. She kept her head down and avoided men. While working with his mother, she caught the attention of a very powerful man. He must have her and devises a plan to make her his. Can she survive the lies and her desire for the insatiable Doug Morgan. Throw in a little paranormal mystery and the Secrecy of the Corde Noire Society and its members for an entertaining read. I look forward to reading more of the series. The ...more

I was so excited for this story. I love the mysterious aura surrounding the whole series.
Sam is a nurse and she loves her job. She has friends but she doesn't have close friends because her ability and the way she was treated because of it left her scared to tell anyone.
Sebastian wanted Sam since the first time he saw her. He is a dom and he is determined to get Sam to be his sub.
Nothing ever goes to plan and between Sam and Sebastian's secrets there are plenty of situations where I didn't know

Overall I enjoyed the writing. I felt like some of the story was lacking, and missing parts. I am not sure if maybe theres more to the 1st in the series I missed, or what. I thought they were standalones that overlapped. But I know one of the missing people was a runover from book one. Dont want to give much away, so cant find much details to share.

I'm really starting to get into this Corde Noire series and I love how this book was an extension of the first book and intermingled some of its characters which I totally wasn't expecting.

I also appreciated that even though this story shared a similar theme to the first book with regard to the whole Dom/Sub thing, these characters had a totally totally different type of relationship and experience.
