    Gat paranormal romance

    In 1818 English gentleman Ian Rufford is sailing when pirates attack his ship. He is taken to Africa as a prisoner and eventually sold to beautifully cruel Asharti, who abuses him in every sense of the word turning him into a feral animal. He eventually escapes.................... Elizabeth Rochewell has enjoyed working and living with her father as he leads archeological digs across Africa. However, when an over four millennium old pillar crumbled, crushed, and killed her beloved father, Elizabeth¿s life died too. She returns to England as a single white woman who cannot survive alone in Africa. When Ian and Beth meet on the vessel from Africa heading to England they find a commonality in Africa and a need to return as they find the aristocracy boring and suffocating with prohibitions on acceptable behavior. As they fall in love, they realize they must battle an evil that may possess Ian and threatens humanity...................... THE COMPANION is a fantastic Regency paranormal romantic suspense that grips the audience from the moment that Ian is kidnapped and never slows down in Africa or England until the final confrontation with a malevolent vampiric villain. The story line is action-packed but the audience will feel deep empathy for Ian¿s plight even after he frees himself from bondage as he still has not liberated his mind and for Elizabeth who was used to total freedom assisting her dad, but now feels choked by the unfathomable rules. Susan Squires provides a terrific historical thriller with a supernatural turn that avoids an overbite when she twists the plot into the paranormal......................... Harriet Klausner

    Intense and entertaining!

    I stumbled upon Susan Squires through an anthology, and I'm glad I went back to start The Companion series from the beginning. Ian Rufford is a strong male lead with character, and Elizabeth Rochewell is a strong female lead with integrity. Our author brings the two together without either having to compromise or surrender their core or true self to the other. They accept and come to value one another as they are, and they are the better for it as they face the hardships ahead of them. This is a page-turning adventure that you won't want to put down!
