Alaric Schuyler.
Enigmatic, cocky, and my new brother-in-law.

He had cerulean blue eyes and a smile so beautifully devious it could entice the devil to do his bidding.

We were never supposed to happen.
One night changed everything, tying him and me together in a sordid twist of fate, trapping me in his dark, chaotic world.

The lucid dreams and sick fantasies followed.

He became the star of my nightmares, always lurking in the shadows, awakening dormant demons one esoteric melody at a time.

I became his muse, a part of everything he did.

He would be the death of me.
And in the end, I wanted nothing more.

One phone call alters Catalina’s life in a way she could have never imagined…

After Alaric Schuyler calls to inform Catalina that his wife, Catalina’s estranged sister who she barely knew, is dead he offers to fly Cataline out to his home so that she can go through her sister’s belongings before he donates everything.

Catalina has no intention of accepting his offer but after some meddling from her overbearing mother and the guilt of not getting to know her sister before she passed, Catalina winds up getting on that plane.

There are a lot of sneaky hidden agendas going on but I don’t have a clue as to where this story is going next. Like I said, I barely even know what’s going on. But even if I did, it probably wouldn’t be right anyway. There is no “figuring it out” in a Bennett novel until she’s ready to disclose all the secrets and twists. But trust me, Opaque Melodies will keep you flipping those pages!

If you like your romances dark, dirty, and filled with mystery, then trust me you are going to want to check out Opaque Melodies!

She lives in her own little anti-social world and she prefers life that way. So when she finds herself in her brother in law’s home and spiraling out… it’s a sight to behold. You want to feel bad for her, but then again you can’t wait to watch all that crazy come out to play. I know there are secrets still to unravel regarding Cat’s parents and her own demons, I am REALLY looking forward to finding out more in Melodic Madness.

Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and the women that love to hate them. Her books donโ€™t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from author natalie bennett logotraditional HEAโ€™s.

When she isnโ€™t in front of her computer sheโ€™s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.

Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.


โThe piece was familiar. It needled the demons he was so determined to wake. It filled the hole in my head and the emptiness within the house. A melody that haunted my dreams. Beautiful, yet sinister. Like the man who asked me to play it. Tragic like the woman I pretended I wasn’t.โž

โMy mind had two variations. Some days it burned bright and I was a ball of positivity. Other days the light was completely extinguished, leaving me with nothing but a heavy darkness and thoughts better left unspoken if I didnโ€™t want to wind up in a straitjacket.โž
