The Silver Chain is the first in the sexy, passionate and addictive Unbreakable Trilogy by Primula Bond.

One dark evening in London, photographer Serena Folkes is indulging her impulsive side with a night-time shoot. But someone is watching her – mysterious entrepreneur Gustav Levi. Serena doesn’t know it yet, but this handsome stranger will change her life forever… Serena is fascinated by Gustav, the enigmatic owner of the Levi Gallery, and she soon feels an irresistible pull of attraction. The interest is mutual, and Gustav promises to launch Serena’s photographic career at his gallery, but only if Serena agrees to become his exclusive companion. To mark their agreement, Gustav gives Serena a bracelet to wear at all times. Attached to it is a silver chain of which he is the keeper. With the chain Gustav controls Serena physically and symbolically – a sign that she is under his power.

As their passionate relationship intensifies, Gustav’s hold on the silver chain grows stronger. But will Gustav’s dark past tear them apart?

A seductive and beautifully written novel perfect for fans of erotic romance.

Review: I found this book to be inconsistent.  Some of the scenarios really took a lot of stretching my imaginations while others were believable.  The romantic action was few and not as steamy as some others, but it had potential.  I didn't start to really care about the characters until 3/4 of the way in and the semi-shocking ender is something I wasn't expecting so I will probably read the second one just to find out what happens.

I think perhaps if the author had set out just to write a romance and then twisted it into an erotic story the relationship would have seemed less strange and more believable.  I did enjoy it but I wasn't in love with it.
