A Civil War soldier dies to save his men. Can he find true love to live again?
Sarah Knight has a job she’s good at, a quirky BFF, and a boyfriend who’s bad for her. When Sarah unearths a Civil War artifact on a ghost hunt at Chatham Manor, she brings home more than a souvenir
Lieutenant James “Tanner” Dawson fought for the Union, working as a supernatural liaison for his Major General in a secret Masonic offset called the Brothers of Peril. When he’s hexed by a witch, he learns the only way to save his men is to die himself. But death is not the end. Awakening 150 years later, he knows if he wants to be corporeal again, he has to find true love to break the hex—a task no easier in 21st century than it was in the 19th.
This a ghost story with a difference, full of historical detail, vivacious characters and mystique. The authentic opening scenes grab the readers’ attention. The surprises and momentum keep you hooked throughout enhanced with poignant romance.
‘Haunt My Heart’ is a kaleidoscope of colours. It swings from humour when Sarah fails to observe the expected etiquette at the ghost walk to menace when Sarah’s life is threatened.
Sarah is a geeky heroine who so easy to like. Strong and resourceful, she is a sceptic when it comes to the paranormal and this leads to plenty of humorous scenes. Tanner reminds me of ‘Bill from True Blood’, a man out of his time but a true gentleman who has strong protective traits.
The mystery that surrounds Tanner’s appearance has its roots in the nineteenth century but the evil prevails, when it is manifests in contemporary Fredericksburg.The romance is gentle and builds in a realistic way, the passion when it explodes is red hot and believable.
This story is a fusion of history, paranormal and romance, which makes ‘Haunt My Heart’ a book worth reading.
