What would you do if a sexy billionaire asked you to marry him just for his money? Scarlett hates her new job as a stripper, but she can’t afford to quit or she’ll lose her house and won’t be able to afford to pay for her dad’s chemo. One night, the handsome billionaire Michael Manning visits the club and shows interest in Samantha—Scarlett’s stage name. Scarlett is immediately attracted to Michael, but she refuses to date anyone she meets at the club. The next day, Scarlett’s friend drags her to church, and to her surprise, Scarlett meets Michael again. He doesn't realize she’s Samantha from last night (she wears a mask while performing) and asks her out. But Scarlett would never have guessed what kind of a sordid, yet utterly irresistible deal he’s about to propose...

Good story but l feel this story should have been resolved in one book

Im not totally sure how i feel about this. Good writing and just enough detail to keep me interested but i felt like Michael was just a HUGE jerk. I also felt like Scarlett was just grasping at straws looking for affection where it seemed it wasn't genuine. I could be wrong, i could have interpreted this way differently than intended but why marry someone for money but not be okay with the fact he may be cheating on you with another version of yourself. It was set up for failure to begin with. I know there are plenty of things left unsaid but i can't feel pitty or anything remotely sympathetic for Scarlett.

The Black Chapel is a really fun read if you like modern romance with some twists and turns. The billionaire meets beautiful financially needy woman, he needs a wife to get his inheritance, ok, not terribly original. However… I really liked Samantha/Scarlett’s dual persona twist; and Diane, the mistrusting  matriarch, is a great character. Even though the basics of Michael and Samantha/Scarlett are pure fantasy (billionaire and good girl/stripper), the author gives both of them some depth which keeps them from being purely one-dimensional. There were times I was rooting for them and times I wanted to smack them both upside the head. The erotic scenes are well written, not too detailed but with enough to make them spicy. I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to acquiring the sequel.

Loved this book so far. I say so far because the ending is a blunt cliffhanger. Guess i should have known since it was book # 1. Other than getting to the end of this book and flipping out because it ended so blunt, i loved it. Scorching hot sex scenes and just a great story itself. Cant wait to see what happens next.

The book tells the story of Scarlett, your average girl struggling with money to pay for her father's cancer treatment. However, there is a much darker side of her, the side of her that she doesn't like telling people. At night, she becomes Samantha, a stripper working at The Black Chapel. One night, a handsome and sexy young billionaire pays a visit to the club. And since then, Scarlett's life gets turned upside down. This book has definitely been one of my favourites to read. The plot is better than most of other books available on the market, which will keep you addicted and unable to put the whole book down until you finish it. Will definitely buy more books from this author, and I recommend you do the same.

Intriguing and well written romance novel.  Beautifully written and exciting all the way. This book had me buried in it as it kept me wanting to keep reading from the first page to the last. I love this author’s style of writing. This was one of the better romance novels I have read. This is a very romantic and engaging novel. If you love romance novels then you will absolutely love this one! I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to more from Marilyn Cruise!

This story line is bit of a mix between Cinderella and Fifty Shades of Gray. Scarlett is a very relatable character because of the circumstances that she seems to be stuck in, but she doesn't give up and powers through the scenarios, a reason I think why I enjoy the book so much. The plot is just perfect because neither of the characters are portrayed as being perfect and it is a more realistic take on what relationships are truly like, even with the billionaire storyline attached to the story. When looking at the erotic part of the story, it is written very well and does not completely overrun the book, but it provides a deeper context to the relationship they begin to have and will grow to have.  The story is well-written and I like it much better than the best sellers that are currently very popular right now.

Marilyn Cruise is definitely the author i am going to look out for for more amazingly sexy read. I couldnt put down the book it had me so engaged. I wanted to jump right into the story line.This effect is thanks to the authors writing style and way of telling a good story with great characters. I fell in love with the main characters Scarelett and Micheal and the author did a great job in telling there back story with out it being rushed. I really liked this sexy and emotional read.

Thinking Sex and the City? Thinking steamy romance and complicated secrets? If yes, then you are thinking of The Black Chapel. It is the erotic romance of our modern society, that captivates your attention and keeps it on hold till the very last page. What is so truly prodigious about the book itself, is that it manages to depict the true soul of a woman. It pictures her as a living being that is fragile, caring, scared, protective and longing for true love. But it also reveals the other side of the coin and her animalistic nature that wants to be wild, free and away from boundaries that society pushes us to oblige to. You can almost think of the main character, Scarlett as if she was Cinderella, but in her own cruel and passionate fairytale, trying to escape the poverty torn between her secrets and her love.  The book will keep your eyes wide open and your heart beating, as if you it were you who finally gets to be loved in the right and all the wrong ways. The Black Chapel narrates the story of a sexy, yet intelligent and educated woman who never managed to see her own true colors. It is as if she was waiting for Michael to manifest and bring out her true self. What I love most about this book are the constant twists and unexpected turns, which make you avidly read on and on. The erotic scenes are the cherry on top of the cake, that just waits for you to be eaten. Believe me, after reading this book, your fantasy will be longing for more than you ever imagined ..

Marilyn Cruise has brought forth one of the best erotica novels that has ever come into my grips. Black Chapel is hot, sexy, and fun. She explores the realities of women behind the scenes of a strip club and the difficulties they possibly may be going through in their day-to-day lives. This novel will leave any reader wanting more. Scarlett is just a regular girl who strips to be able to pay her father’s medical bills, which she is utterly ashamed of. That is until one day she sees a tall handsome man at the strip club, staring at her. It is almost as if she fell in love that first time she looked at him. This story brings their struggles to view when he asks Scarlett to marry him, so he can get his inheritance.  I have no other words to tell you all except pick up this book and dive into the sexy, steamy world that Cruise has created. You won’t be disappointed.
