What a treat just in time for the Halloween season!
This book was mesmerizing! The astute manner in which the author blended historical and paranormal fiction with modern day intricacies made this an excellent read that I just couldn’t put down! The story line is captivating and the characters are divine. I couldn’t help but to think of “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” while reading this, as it’s one of my favorite classics. Of course, the relationship she had with her ghost is tepid, at most, compared to James and April’s steamy love affair. In this day and age, it’s hard to find a man that’s as attentive and chivalrous as James.
This novel is much more than a ghost story with a romantic twist, though, it’s a mystery/thriller as well. A dark secret lurks in the shadows of the historic town, but bringing light on the subject could come at a cost. With the help of April’s hilarious relatives, she and James try to answer questions that no one alive knows.
Joseph Buchanan’s coined term “psychometry”—which means being able to see the past by touching an object– is utilized brilliantly and the author takes it to another level, catapulting this novel high above others in the same genres. I laughed, I cried, and unfortunately, I was up investigating everything that went “bump!” in the night. This is definitely a must read!
I was pleasantly surprised with this novel, as the author has taken a refreshing approach to vampires. Unlike the norm, our beloved creatures of the night aren’t possessive of their loved ones and allow them a certain freedom that only makes their love stronger. The erotic scenes are mind blowing and the characters are tasty! Everyone was intelligent, quick witted, and relatable. I was enchanted by the exciting story line that delivered a climatic ending, although I didn’t want it to end at all. Leaving room for the next installment, the author has gained from me a devoted fan.
Pick up a copy of this delightfully sinful novel, you won’t be sorry!
