About the Author

Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees, and diving for scallops—when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons—an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days.
 
Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it’s strange for a minister to write romance, but it is perfectly natural to Amber, because she believes the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She writes paranormal, historical, and contemporary romance in every spare moment, and she lives with her family in San Francisco.

Sonya is a woman who was murdered, and she wants revenge - and it seems as though Dmitri is the one who will be able to help her when she appears to him. Dmitri has his own plans for revenge, but he can't help wanting to help this beautiful spectre. And when his touch makes her inhabit her body once again, he finds himself wanting to help her experience all the things she never was able to before her untimely death. But time is running out for both of them - can they catch a killer and find some kind of happiness before it's too late? I really enjoyed this intriguing and interesting romance! Most paranormal stories I read have shifters, or vampires or demons, and this is the first time I've read a full novel that involved a ghost as the heroine of the story. Sonya comes across as a lovely woman from a warm family, whose fate was decided too soon when her family was murdered in 1968 in the Ukraine. Until now she's been in limbo, but the time has come for her to enact her revenge, and when she appears to Dmitri in the present time she calls to him on a soul deep level (in part because she is a Siren, a woman who can tempt men to their doom). Dmitri is also Ukrainian, with a complicated family history, including a deranged abusive father and an uncle for whom he still works as a contract killer. He knows he's a bad person, but assisting Sonya in her quest might help him redeem himself. Developing feelings for a ghost is not something he expects, but when she is able to become a solid, touchable woman, he finds himself drawn to her even more. They share some steamy scenes together, even with the knowledge that there can never be a future between them. The setting was really interesting, centered in the Ukraine and San Francisco (in the past and in the present) with a nod to Ukrainian folklore in Sonya's presence as a 'rusalka' , a water nymph with a Siren's call. It's a mystery, a suspense story and a romance all rolled into one. And though it seems as though there is no way that there can be a happy ending for this couple (I mean, she is a ghost after all), I was pleasantly surprised with how the plot unfolded and how it all turned out. I'm looking forward to reading more as there is another mystery unveiled at the end that involves Sonya's sister. 4 stars for a unique and entertaining romance!
