    Highly Recommended

    Fierce violence, childhood sweet memories, passion, introspection, ghosts, happy dogs, mare's childbirth are only some of the ingredients of this book, a novel that is able to grasp your attention, starting from the very beginning and down to the unespected epilogue.

    I hope the author will write soon another novel, I'll read it!

    Simply a good read...

    Porter House is a heartwarming story of perseverance, strength, and love. The heroine is Cory, who has suffered domestic abuse and who returns to the loving home of her late grandfather. During her time spent there, her heart begins to heal and she meets a spirit, Kade, who serves as her protector and friend. I don't want to give too much away, but this was a good read that kept me turning pages to see what the outcome would be. I believe you will find this book exciting, and also a good book that raises awareness of the horrors of domestic abuse, and shows us that time heals all wounds.

    Must read book :-)

    The story of the book is indeed a love story made in heaven. It was so enchanting that a mortal was destined to someone immortal who have been visiting her in her dreams before they were able to meet. What made me want to finish the book right away was the theme of HOPE in the story. Cory and Kade had hope for something to happen and indeed it really happened. Indeed loving is living, and you want to continue living to express your love. The author had captured my heart and i strongly recommend it for you to read. Your hearts might be captured also.

    A Truly Amazing Read!

    As someone who has never really been into romance books, I can honestly say that after reading Porter House, I will be looking for more of the genre! This book simply blew me away with it's in depth descriptions of the characters and it's thorough explanations of the fantasy elements in the story. It has just the right amount of foreshadowing to keep the pages flipping without revealing too much too fast. I would definitely reccomend Porter House to anyone looking for a good read. :)
