    Nineteen-year-old Glynis Albion isn’t like the others in Darling. With uncommon beauty and a history of sadness and loss, she is as isolated as the remote location in which she resides. The pain of Glynis’s past, coupled with the mystery surrounding the disappearance of her best friend, has left Glynis open to a secret. A dark menace that has been watching and waiting, biding its time, until just the right moment.

    Long before Sabelle Sabin became lost to Glynis, she’d been found by another. A being that stalked its way into Sabelle’s heart, compelling her into an otherwordly conflict from which she had never been meant to escape.

    Of course, none of this would have mattered were it not for Glynis’s quirky aunt, Libby, whose youthful alchemical interests ultimately thrust her into a confounding world of divination, danger, and deceit. A precarious flirtation that would prove to have immeasurable, unintended consequences.

    Unaware of the plights that would befall Sabelle and Libby, Glynis knows only that since she lost them, she’s felt trapped on her family’s land in a self-imposed exile. And while the greatest mystery for most folks in town is the strange lacerations that have been appearing without explanation for countless years on the otherwise healthy residents of Darling, Glynis will soon find that the vision she can no longer trust will draw her toward one of nature’s darker creations, awakening a new understanding of what lies in the shadows.

  • Bound At Dusk: student teacher dark erotic romance by H. Zilfiger

    0 out of 5

    Star Book, All The Filthy Details podcast erotica reviews, June 2021

    Dark erotic romance set in modern-day Scotland and inspired in part by the author’s real-life experiences. Features themes of bondage, domination and submission.

    “What makes this book stand out is its strong narrative. It kept surprising me from start to finish and it’s also funny at times. Its eroticism sways from sensual to explicit and back. The characters are intriguing and the writing is great. Definitely my recommendation and an author to keep an eye on.” – PATRICIA RAY, Erotic Romance Writer

    “For me, Bound At Dusk felt dark, moody and realistic. The Scottish backdrop, married with its descriptive style, sets the book up perfectly. The book teases the reader initially with a sense of mystery that lures the reader in. Once fully invested, the reward is page after page of unbridled debauchery, written to perfection.” – THE COUNT, Reviewer, All The Filthy Details podcast
