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.

My Reviews:


A Hold On Me (The Dark Heart #1)

4/5 Stars!

I love a good paranormal romance.  A Hold on Me was an immersive experience that pulls you in and takes you on a ride.  From Annie’s creepy and secretive family to the mysterious backstory, this book will grab you and pull you in.  Then, there is Chase.  He wants her gone, but he can’t seem to stay away from her.  Annie is hesitant, but she can’t seem to stay away from him either.

Mix horror and suspense and add in a side of romance and you get the absorbing paranormal book.


Beyond Your Touch (The Dark Heart #2)

4/5 Stars!

Book two starts where book 1 left off.

Annie is drawn to Chase, but she isn’t sure she can trust him.  She is finally feeling comfortable around her family and Chase being their employee doesn’t make things easy.  Plus, there’s a mysterious stranger that seems to want Chase for her own.  The bigger problem, the stranger might hold the key to getting her mother back.

There are a lot of twists and secrets to this book.  Whereas book one was mostly back story and character development, book two moves the story along and the action picks up a bit.  I enjoyed the developing relationship between Annie and Chase.

Mysterious and a little steamy, Beyond Your Touch was a great follow up!
