Genre: Erotic Romance
Twenty-two-year old Amber St. James’s focus is on her education. Her plan is clear—finish the elite San Francisco/Berkeley Medical School program early and become a pediatrician. She hasn’t given much thought to dating or to men in general, until she enrolls in the required human sexuality course…a subject foreign to her for religious and personal reasons.
Tantric yoga 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. When he hears of Amber’s plight, he offers to help. The condition? Amber must assist in his couples’ Tantra yoga class as his partner. The sizzling attraction between the two of them is beyond anything Dash has ever experienced…spiritually or otherwise.
Through his teachings, Dash 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 miss yoga!
Sacred Serenity is the second in the Lotus House series and our hero is a trantric yoga instructor. He takes hot to a whole different level! Amber, our heroine, is the best friend of another instructor and agrees to help Dash teach his class so she can do research for a college course. The instant sparks between these two fly off the page and Dash's dedication make him absolutely swoon worthy. Different life philosophies cause drama, but I loved how Dash and Amber figured out if love really did conquer all.
This is a well written story that captured not only the romantic relationship between Amber and Dash, but also several other issues in their personal lives. The side issues are my one true complaint about Sacred Serenity. During the course of the story, we know that Amber is in an intense medical school program and that there is upheaval in her parental relationships. Both of those are themes running through the romantic story line and they, along with what type of author Dash is, are just dropped. Dash and Amber get their resolution and one of the side issues is hinted at, but we never fully get the closer needed to feel like the issue is resolved.
Overall, this is a good book and definitely worth a reader's time.
