Spirit possession is easy to remedy. Possession of the heart is another matter.
After vicar’s widow and natural medium Barbara Darke loses her respectable teaching position, she reluctantly agrees to become companion to her former pupil Emily, now the bride of young Sir Arthur Haggard.
Once settled at Haggard Hall, Barbara finds her friend is beset by ghostly voices and unexplained deaths. In a maelstrom of dark spirits and wicked emotions, Barbara battles to lay Emily’s ghosts to rest—both hampered and helped by Arthur’s skeptical cousin Patrick, who provokes and attracts her in equal measure.
It would be a mistake to trust a secretive, guilt-ridden man suspected of driving his wife to suicide, if not outright murdering her. And it could well be lethal to give in to her own desires, confused as they often are with the lusts of the dead.
But Arthur and Emily are in genuine physical danger, and suspicion is falling closer and closer to Patrick—the man who haunts Barbara’s sensual dreams. The man who stands to inherit Haggard Hall.
Warning: Contains a medium whose body is open season for spirit possession, and a scandal-ridden journalist who only believes what he can see—and touch.
My review: WOWZA. This book was hot very hot, but come on if the dude on the cover doesn’t let you know that… I mean can we take a moment and check out the cover??? Seriously that will drive any girl to madness.
This book was a fantastic and quick read that I could not put down. I devoured it. Yes devoured. I found the characters fun and I am so excited to have discovered another awesome author. The writing was fantastic and well the steamy scenes… well were hot & very very steamy. Gotta love that right?
I thought I was getting burned out on PNR but this book has 100% restored my faith in the genre as it is refreshing and certainly worth a read for any PNR fan. Seriously go get your copy asap.
Sigh. Just go get your copy already, I hate diving into plots because well I am always trying to not spoil books for people and this one deserves to be read without any spoiling. So freaking good.
