And make her my wife.

My Review:

4/5 Stars!!!

Deliciously dark, this story of two very broken people who find what they need in each other. Ghost is a dark tale of love and trust in a most unconventional way.

Talia has been sold into slavery and she is clinging to her last bit of hope when she is unexpectedly “rescued” by Alexei, a high-ranking member of the Russian mafia. His rescue is not as it seems and life is only minimally better for Talia.

Talia and Alexei are very complex characters with miserable pasts. Alexei is powerful, but is bound by a secret that could destroy him. He is dark and angry and controlling, but he is gentle with Talia. He does not trust, though. Talia is broken both mentally and physically. She also cannot trust. They push and fight and goad each other, but under the surface, this palpable current of emotion slowly meanders along like a quiet hum.

A. Zavarelli has woven a dark tale that will keep you in suspense, pull at your emotions and have you rooting for these two to find the love they so deserve with each other. A page turner and a must read!
