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.

Of all of Audrey's books, this one is my favorite to date! For starters the Tantric yoga is not only a super fresh idea, but it's smokin' hot. Seriously, just reading the summary of this book I was revved and ready to go! Then there's Dash. I loved everything about him. I loved his confidence. I loved his spirituality. I loved his genuineness. I simply could not get enough of his character and found myself itching to get back into the book whenever reality forced me out of the story. I also LOVED his endearment for Amber. (Little bird) Oh, who am I kidding. I just loved Dash. If you're up for a super hot read mixed with some refreshing spirituality, this book is definitely for you!
Tantric yoga = heat + passion + emotion! Spirituality and sexuality are together in a beautiful mix of emotion and lustful love. Amber St James is dedicated to her faith and her quest to become a doctor. Her studies has always been the focus but when a class brings her in close contact with the handsome and sexy Dash Alexander, she is not immune. What follows is a whirlwind of discovery and love that was fun, hot and a tantric treat! This is the second in the series that focuses on love and how yoga and its teachings fit so easily with each other. What could have been a dry lesson instead takes a ‘practice what you preach’ approach, making learning fun and combustible! I didn’t know a tremendous amount about the spirituality linked to yoga but seeing how touch, smell, voice could bind two people together in so many ways, I’m a convert! Amber and Dash were great characters. They were both driven and successful, funny and serious, and combustible together. “That man has a gift. The way he opens chakras as if he’s peeling back layers of an onion...” “The instinct to hold and protect this woman was a powerful aphrodisiac.” Their story was well-written, soulful and satisfying for the mind and the body. While yoga was the focus that bound everything together, love was at the heart of every caress, argument and unexpected twisty turn. I laughed, I sighed, and I vowed to practice more yoga if this is what happens when your mind is open to new experiences. I can’t wait for more in this series! Made me laugh out loud: “But what if I want to show you love?” “Tomorrow. Wake me up with a b******, and I’ll love the h*** out of you.” *I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
I fell in LOVE with Dash and Amber in Sacred Serenity. Audrey Carlan delivered a steaming hot story filled with innocence, sweetness, sensuality, and discovery of one selves spirituality. How can a hot, sensual Tantric yoga instructor fall head over heals for the wholesome, devoted Christian, medical student? Easily when that so called Christian looks and moves the way Amber does. Dash has reached a point in his life where 'one night stands' just don't fill his needs anymore. Focusing on himself he concentrates on his career, putting his love life on the back burner. Amber is saving herself for the man that she will spend the rest of her life with. She made a vow to God and to herself. Her focus is school and doing well in her medical program. When circumstances bring Dash and Amber together, souls unite spiritually, emotionally and physically. Although Dash and Amber share different religious beliefs, it's mind boggling just how right they are for one another, SOULMATES. As Dash and Amber grow closer, beliefs are tested and questioned. A family secret rocks Amber to the core, sending Amber's life into shambles. Leaving her questioning so many things and rocking her once blissful world. Can Amber and Dash work through their issues and find their happily ever after? Well done Audrey Carlan. You had me laughing, crying, gasping and cheering throughout this book. Amber and Dash have become one of my favorite couples and I thoroughly enjoyed embracing their discovery of themselves, one another and how they each changed the other in a positive way. BRAVO!!
