Praise for Betrayal

“Velvet crosses many lines other authors avoid, and pulls the reader into each experience, scheme, sexual exploit and mystery of the characters. There are many doors left unopened at The Black Door, and readers will anticipate the release of the next installment.” —Fallen Angels on Seduction

Seduction is every bit as steamy as its predecessor, The Black Door. Seduction is a captivating story that is as entertaining as it is erotic. Velvet has done a wonderful job of crafting a series of erotica that will leave you waiting for the next chapter in the story of the Black Door. If you have not read any erotica before, the Black Door Series is just the thing to start with.” —Rawsistaz Reviewers

“A great read. If you enjoy reading erotica, "Seduction" by Velvet is a book that will keep you wanting more.” —The Latest on Seduction

“The delicious high-priced scandal of Jackie Collins meets the steamy sexiness of Zane.” —Debbi Morgan, Emmy Award-Winning Actress

“From the first page to the last, THE BLACK DOOR is so visual that it reads like a movie!” —Taraji P. Henson, Actress (Hustle and Flow)
