Title: The Sleeping Serpent
Authors : Luna Saint Claire & Virginia Bowen
As arousing as 50 Shades, twisted as Gone Girl, and tortured as Wuthering Heights
Immensely erotic and psychologically captivating, The Sleeping Serpent is the compelling story of a woman’s obsession with a spellbinding guru and the struggle to reclaim her life. At its heart, it is a painfully beautiful exposition of unconditional love that makes us question what we truly want.

Infatuated, she becomes entangled in Nico’s life as he uses his mesmerizing sexuality to manipulate everyone around him in his pursuit of women, wealth, and celebrity. Immensely erotic and psychologically captivating, The Sleeping Serpent is the compelling story of a woman’s obsession with a spellbinding guru and the struggle to reclaim her life. At its heart, it is a painfully beautiful exposition of unconditional love that makes us question what we truly want.
Review by Melissa Feist
A dark twisted soulless yogi, Nico Romero is an empty vessel. Watching Nico systematically insinuate himself into the lives of women, through the guise of "helping" them achieve their potential was brilliant and diabolical. An extremely sexy and erotic cautionary tale...it leaves you exhausted and in a mind funk, you won't forget this book. Great storytelling with richly written and exposed characters.
Luna Saint Claire is a costume designer and author residing in Los Angeles with her husband, a philosophy professor. She loves blues rock and Indie music, often setting her Pandora station to Damien Rice. Her personal style can best be described as eclectic bohemian. Though she now enjoys running and yoga, she spent years of her youth in the ballet studio. Her part Native American heritage informs her work as a designer and influences her storytelling.
