Overview

Daniel Van Doren was once a renowned writer, until he was blinded in the car accident that killed his lover. Now, all he sees are ghosts in need of help. They follow him everywhere, and the only way to be rid of his ethereal visitors is to help them resolve their unfinished business here on earth so their spirits can find peace.

Ghostwriter Logan Riley is assigned to pen Daniel's biography. He plans to reveal him as a fraud, but when they meet he's struck by Danny's quiet sincerity—and a growing attraction. Which makes sticking close to Danny to find out the truth more than a little distracting.

When they are attacked by a violent poltergeist Logan begins to believe Danny's not just telling the truth, he's in grave danger. A spirit has learned how to harness the energy of the living to break through the barrier between worlds to harm Danny. And Logan may be the one to blame…

Read an Excerpt


The stench of rot, mildew and decay jammed Danny's nasal passages. He'd tried breathing through his mouth for about a minute, but that only made him want to retch, so he returned to his original tactic. Slow, shallow breaths through his nose, taken one small whiff at a time.

If he survived this revolting trek through Phoenix's sewer system, he'd be showering for the next three days. And he'd spend every minute of those seventy-two hours inhaling the scent of fresh shampoo until his lungs went numb.

"You better be right about this, Van Doren." Detective Nick Samuels snorted, then gagged, before letting a gob of spit loose. It landed somewhere in the vicinity of Danny's feet. "If you're dragging me through shit for nothing, I'll spend the rest of my days making you pay. God as my witness."

"Right, Detective. Because this is where I always take my evening stroll."

Nick let out a groan that said he didn't give a damn if Danny walked off a cliff without bungee gear. "You just better be right. That's all I'm saying." No threat this time, but Danny heard it just the same.

Despite the fact that he'd helped the Phoenix P.D. solve six homicides in the last nine months, Nick didn't like him much. He never had, not even when he'd been married to Danny's sister. That was probably Danny's fault. They'd gotten their relationship off to a rocky start the first night he found Nick groping Elena in the front seat of his car. A decade later, Nick still hadn't forgiven him for that bloody nose.

The shape he followed flickered in the distance. She was short, maybe four foot six at best. Probably about ten years old. She ran ahead of them, but he couldn't give chase. Being blind made treading on a newly paved sidewalk as treacherous as skating on bare feet. Slogging through the sewers with the rank stench of waste sticking to his lungs and his feet sloshing through inches of foul water meant he had to shuffle rather than walk, and running was out of the question.

"Come on, honey." Danny kept his voice low, soothing, even though he had no idea whether the little girl could hear him. She pretended to, sometimes, and other times he might as well have been talking to a brick wall. A bystander watching him hold a conversation with himself would think he was doing just that. Most people who knew him already assumed he'd lost his mind along with his eyesight.

Hell, most days he thought the same.

"Right behind ya, pumpkin."

The sarcasm in Nick's voice grated on Danny's nerves. If he didn't need the man to identify the location of the body when Danny finally led him to it—and to guide him back out of this hellhole once his ethereal guide disappeared—he'd have been just as happy to leave the detective sitting in front of a box of donuts at the station.

Well, no, that wasn't entirely true. Danny wasn't stupid. Or reckless, for that matter. He needed Nick to watch his back on this ill-advised expedition, almost as much as the little girl's ghost needed him.

Two years ago, before Danny lost his sight, Nick had been tall, lean and handsome. These days, Danny liked to picture him based on his surly demeanor and gruff voice. It took some effort, but he pictured a barrel-chested, beer-gutted man with a bad comb over and a permanent snarl on thin lips crusted with powdered sugar. Danny grinned at that mental image and momentarily forgot his resolve to take small, shallow breaths. He sucked in a mouthful of the funky air before catching himself, and his stomach writhed.

    Great read

    An enthralling ghost story with some unique twists. Two very hot MC's, angst and drama made this book fun and sexy!

    Great mix of paranormal and emotion...

    My Review:


    I completely and thoroughly enjoyed this book. Both these guys have experienced a great loss. Danny lost his partner and his sight in a car wreck. Logan lost his ex-wife to a suicide. Both of them feel guilt because of the events leading up just prior to those deaths. It's bad enough when someone close to you dies, but when you have guilt involved with the complexity of those feelings, it's especially difficult.


    The author of this book wrote the part of Danny's blindness really well. There was an enhanced sense of the story just because of the parts of the story which are told through his POV. It's hard to explain just how well this was done, but I truly felt his confusion and worry, especially when put into a new place or situation. I loved being in his head when the story was being told from his POV. It was interesting to get his perspective. I really enjoyed that aspect of this story.


    I also really just loved both Danny and Logan's characters. Neither one of them have had much happiness or anything even remotely like a relationship in the last two years. And they are so incredibly drawn to each other, despite all the obstacles...and they do have obstacles...one red-headed poltergeist one who is truly terrifying. There was the perfect balance of sexy romance and suspenseful...'oh my god, how are they going to get out of this?' going on in this book that I just loved it.


    The ghosts and blindness provided an interesting twist to the story and I definitely found myself enraptured by it. I'll definitely be reading more from this author in the future. I liked the way the story intertwined and unfolded to create this riveting read.


    I received a complementary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
