Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. I'm writing this review back to front. I usually put the star rating and my reasons for that at the end, I'm doing it different here. I'm giving this book 4 stars, and here is why. This book was billed as a stand alone, in a series of three. It's not, though, not really. There was somethings that happened in books one and two that are carried over here, and I was not fully able to piece together everything. MUCH, certainly, but not everything. And as such, my enjoyment of this book went down a notch. Had I read books one and two first, I'm fairly certain this would have been a five star read. At some point, maybe I'll go back and read them, and my painting will be complete. I said in a review (that is currently UNpublished) that I was frustrated with this sub-genre, that of female wanting to explore her submission, and a damaged Dom not really willing but pulled in to help. Because they were all same old, same old. THIS book, however, pulls me away from that frustration. It is sufficiently different to make it interesting, it has a lot going for it, that missing information aside, and I did really enjoy it. Its told from both Ella and Ren's POV, and a couple of others (can't really say characters, because one...isn't) have a little say. I like that Ella retains herself, while giving into Ren and his training and that she really can't NOT stand up for herself when the time came. It is sexy, but weirdly, not overly explicit, if that makes any sense. There was the right amount of scening between the story lines, to make the book, but not so much as to overpower their story, and indeed the undercurrent of the story from the previous books. I would, as I said, like to go back and read books one and two, to fully complete my painting of whats going on, and also, future books. I'm intrigued by that story line that I don't fully have yet, and it is deeply, deeply bothering me and I wanna know, like NOW!!! (alas, though, it may have to wait) 4 stars **same worded review will appear on Goodreads, BookLikes, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, Kobo and Barnes and Noble**

HIS DARK CANVAS is the third installment in Alexandrea Weis’s contemporary, adult CORDE NOIRE slightly paranormal, erotic, BDSM series focusing on the members of an elite, secretive society known as Corde Noire. This is reclusive painter and Corde Noire society owner Ren Plancharde, and executive chef Ella Winston’s story line. HIS DARK CANVAS can be read as a stand alone but for cohesion and backstory, I recommend reading the series in order as there is an ongoing investigation and search for the missing Nathan Cole whose story was told in book one DARK PERCEPTION. Told from dual third person perspectives (Ella and Ren) HIS DARK CANVAS is a sexually erotic story about two people whose lives intersected years before. Ella is an executive chef in need of a job when reclusive artist Ren Plencharde makes Ella an offer she cannot resist-one month/ $5,000 / live in chef to our mysterious hero. What ensues is Ella’s introduction to the Corde Noire Society-an exclusive BDSM club where membership is high and women are owned by those willing to pay for the privilege. Ren has agreed to train our heroine to be a submissive both in and out of the bedroom with the goal to have Ella ready for another Dom. But Ella has a secret that if revealed could mean the end of her relationship with Ren Plencharde but a relationship that begins to grow into something more. Ren Plenchard is the owner of Corde Noire and a man struggling to uncover the truth behind the disappearance of billionaire Nathan Cole. Nathan is a man with a penchant for the dark and dangerous side of BDSM, and a man whose whereabouts has become the number one topic within the Corde Noire elite. Ella’s hidden ability becomes fair game when Ren is desperate to uncover the truth. The relationship between Ella and Ren begins as a business arrangement but for all intents and purposes our hero has ‘stalked’ our heroine for a number of years. Ella is an executive chef who has fallen onto hard times and Ren’s offer comes with a secret agenda and terms. Ren is a man who has lusted after our story line heroine since the day they first met but a man who doesn’t do relationships and refuses to commit to a future or happily ever after. The $ex scenes are graphic, erotic and intense; there is some light BDSM content including spanking, obedience training and bondage. The world building continues to focus on the hunt for Nathan Cole, and the connections to and membership into the The Corde Noire Society. The paranormal subplot focuses on the series heroines, and their psychic abilities, supernatural gifts and a ghost who is unable to move forward until reparations have been made. HIS DARK CANVAS is an engaging story line; an imaginative tale about two people brought together by fate and circumstances. The premise is provocative; the characters are passionate and dramatic; the romance is sensual and moving. Alexandrea Weis adds another intimate story line to her exquisite and erotic Corde Noire series.
