Tantric yoga pushes your body, mind, and soul to meld with your partner in ways the average relationship never experiences. Deeply sensual and highly sexual, tantric yoga is for true believers. Amber St. James doesn't know what to believe. At twenty-two years old her focus is on medical school as she prepares to be a pediatrician. Top of her class, she hasn't given much thought to dating or men in general. Her plan is clear. Finish the elite San Francisco/Berkeley Medical School program early and become a doctor. That is, until she needs to pass her human sexualities course. A subject she is by far a stranger to for religious and personal reasons.
Tantric practitioner Dash Alexander is Lotus House Yoga's most sought after sensual teacher. Women flock to him for his unique teaching style, calm nature, and wicked hot body. Hearing Amber's plight, he offers to help her. The condition? Amber must assist his couples' tantra yoga class as his partner. The attraction between the two is beyond anything he's ever experienced spiritually or otherwise.
Through Dash's teachings he makes love to Amber's mind and merges with her soul. Physically there's only one problem, a secret that's sacred. Amber St. James is a virgin...by choice.

I love to multi-task whenever possible and audible allows me to keep up my voracious reading appetite while doing other things!
Wow. What a sexy listen. Sacred Serenity is the second book in the Lotus House series. It follows the next door neighbour/friend/"sister from another mister" of Genevieve Harper from book 1. I enjoyed both books in this series. You don't need to have read the first book to enjoy this installment, but there are certainly spoilers in book 2 that would detract from the enjoyment of the first book if read out of order.
Both narrators provided a solid 4-star performance. Daxton Shade was a new narrator for me. I thought he sounded a bit old as Dash, but his overall performance was good. I would have preferred Jacob Morgan to narrate book 2 as well, but alas it was not to be. Caitlin Elizabeth breathed life into our heroine, Amber and her voicing of male characters made the dialog easy to follow.
Of this series, this is my favourite book. Dash as a handsome, tanned, toned, California yogi makes for a desirable male lead. But hey, this guy is the TANTRIC yoga instructor. Plus, his demonstration partner for the couples class is a virgin. To say this story was rife with sexual tension and off-the-charts chemistry is an understatement.
The premise behind Amber's chastity is religion - more specifically Catholicism. There is a lot of "God talk" in this book. Amber comes off quite preachy, but her character's debate between religion, marriage, and sexuality rings true.
There is also an interesting sub-plot in this book regarding Amber's paternity since her mother died after childbirth without divulging the identity of her father. I wish Audrey Carlan had added more of this secondary story. The glimpses she provided throughout the novel sometimes seemed to be included as afterthoughts.
Overall, worth my listening credit.
I love how Dash and Amber connect immediately. How he opened her up her sexuality without pushing her prematurely. Amber was determined to stay faithful to God and keep her virginity. But yet,Dash, like most men, want her solo badly to express his love to her. The two owners of Lotus House had to tell him he must understand Amber's position and if he really love her, he should give her that commitment. It's a phenomenal novel series. I'm a Audrey Carlan fan for Life.
