She wants more than he can promise.

His desires could lead to betrayal.

But without each other, neither can survive the dangers ahead.

Annie Freemont knows this isn’t the right time to get involved with a man like Chase. After years of distrust, she’s finally drawing close to her estranged family, and he’s an employee on their estate in Maine. Though she never intended to stay on the estate for long, her father’s illness and the mysteries surrounding her family made leaving impossible. And now with the newfound hope of rescuing her long-missing mother, Annie’s determined to be involved with the family’s plans one way or another.

If only she could keep her mind off Chase and focus on the impending rescue. But there’s something about the enigmatic Chase that she can’t resist. And she’s not the only woman. Annie fears a seductive stranger who is key to safely freeing her mother is also obsessed with him. As plans transform into action and time for a treacherous journey into a strange world draws near, every move Annie makes will test the one bond she’s trusted with her secrets, her desires—and her heart.

Mysterious; thrilling; fast-paced!!!

 

review 1

  • I’ve loved Annie’s growth. She has matured in this book. She is less involved with the mystery of her father, and is more invested in her family as a whole.
  • The romance has really grown in this book. I’ve really enjoy their relationship. Nothing like competition to spice it up a relationship.
  • This book is better  than book one. It’s not as gothic, horror as the first, but more mysterious.
  • Really addictive. I could start book 3 right now!
  • I like the cover. I can see Annie and Chase.

 

Review 2

  • *Warning* This book cannot be read as a stand-alone. To understand you need to read book 1 first.
  • There are still a lot to be explained, which the author probably left to be explored on book 3.
  • I still find this book a bit confusing sometimes with too many things going on, but I love the exploration of the djinn world, and the good X evil theme.

 

You MAY read this book because you have read book one, you SHOULD read this book if you enjoy paranormal world; you MUST read this if you want to be wowed!!!

She never wanted to return.
He wants nothing more than for her to leave.
But the fire between them is as strong as the past that haunts them.

Annie Freemont grew up on the road, immersed in the romance of rare things, cultivating an eye for artifacts and a spirit for bargaining. It's a freewheeling life she loves and plans to continue--until her dad is diagnosed with dementia. His illness forces them to return to Moonhill, their ancestral home on the coast of Maine--and to the family they left behind fifteen years ago, after Annie's mother died in a suspicious accident.

Once at Moonhill, Annie is shocked when her aunt separates her from her father. The next time Annie sees him, he's a bizarre, violent shadow of his former self. Confused, she turns to an unlikely ally for support--Chase, the dangerously seductive young groundskeeper. With his dark good looks and powerful presence, Chase has an air of mystery that Annie is irresistibly drawn to. But she also senses that behind his penetrating eyes are secrets she can't even begin to imagine. Secrets that hold the key to the past, to Annie's own longings--and to all of their futures. Now, to unlock them, she'll have to face her greatest fears and embrace her legacy…

Unexpected; different, creative!!!

 

review 1

  • The entire concept of the book is great. The author’s creativity is amazing!
  • The world-building is very interesting and intriguing.
  • I really love Annie the main character and I also like a lot of the secondary characters. They are all well crafted and easy to love and connect.
  • There are a lot of twists and the end is very surprising. I was quite in shock!
  • I’m a very curious person and the plot the author has created has hooked me. I’ve ended wanting more!

 

Review 2

  • Even though I’ve loved the plot, there were many different mysteries and I was a bit confused sometimes. If felt a little like too much going on.
  • There are some romantic elements, but not a big romance per se. I believe it could have been explored better.
  • I love book covers and I believe they can be part of the journey of a story. I didn’t see much in this one. I’m not certain I would have bought this book only by its cover.

 

You MAY buy this book because you like paranormal reads; you SHOULD buy this book if are looking for something different; but you MUST read this if you are looking for something totally unexpected!!!
