    The Taking is exceptional

    The Taking by Erin McCarthy is another powerful story in the deadly sins series.

    Heiress Regan Henry Alcott is tired of felling unloved in her perfect marriage. She meets a compelling man who is a voodoo priest at a holiday party. Something else happens that night, Regan got the courage to leave her husband. Now its three months later and she has bought the house that has intrigued her for years. But it seems her new home is haunted and slowly taken over her life.

    Felix LeBlanc made a deal with a demon over a lifetime ago, this deal was to help his mother and himself. He enjoyed the good life until tragedy struck a young woman that he cared deeply about. Felix life changed completely after that night. He never gave his heart to anyone again. When Regan contacts him to do readings at her latest charity function. He is drawn to her world and her quiet ways.

    Regan turns to Felix for help with the strange things that are happening at her home. These things she can't understand nor can she explain them. Seems the house has a tragic past and Felix is the one person that can save Regan from its reach.

    The Taking is spellbinding. Both the past and the present stories are intriguing and seamlessly woven together. Both Felix and Regan's worlds are formed by their past and guide their futures. Their connection is deep and powerful. This book still haunts me weeks after reading it. I can't wait to read the next book in this series.

    Surprisingly good

    I hesitated reading this book from an author not known to me, and so few reviews, but it was really good overall. I going to pick up more of this author's books.

    This is an entertaining paranormal romance

    In New Orleans affluent Regan Henry decides to leave her husband though she acknowledges to herself he is not a nasty person; the problem as she sees it is that her spouse is too perfect as perfect demands perfection; something she is not. On that same evening when she walks out, she meets voodoo priest Felix Leblanc. They connect as each is attracted to the other, but both know their bond is much more.

    Her new home is apparently haunted by a ghost. She asks Felix for help. He knows he must stay away from Regan whom he loves because he sold his soul to the devil. He fears Satan will destroy her soul while she is willing to risk her soul for her beloved.

    This is an entertaining paranormal romance that grips the audience who will wonder what will happen to Regan and Felix as each places their respective soul on the line. In her case her soul remains pure but in his it is a last chance at redemption. Ironically if either succeeds in their Gift of the Magi like sacrifice Satan wins. Fans will enjoy Erin McCarthy's aptly titled The Taken as the lead couple is taken with each while Satan is the Taken scheming to take two souls as the devil diabolically manipulates love.

    Not for me

    I am a huge Christine Feehan and Lora Leigh fan. I had high hopes for this series by Erin McCarthy. I could not finish any of the three I paid for. To each his own!
