Forbidden Gardens
by Claire Castleberry

Forbidden Gardens is the eagerly awaited sequel to the critically acclaimed Azalea House. Marianne thought she rid herself of her family’s tragic past when she burned their mansion to the ground. But when the widower of her best friend courts her to sell her the land so they can rebuild and live together, she returns to Azalea House and reawakens the spirits that haunt her.

While home in Louisiana, Marianne explores her sexuality and a growing interest in dominance. But when her taboo lover is found dead in a scandalous position, she’s left to wonder if there is murder in her heart or the truth is far more disturbing.

Forbidden Gardens explores the darkest tunnels between what society expects of us and what we desire.
