CLICK TO PURCHASE!Wesley Atherton is a psychiatrist in London, England. When he bumps into American, Katherine, he feels that maybe there is such a thing as love at first sight. Trouble is, she is wearing an engagement ring. They just barely survive a train wreck and he knows he has to persuade her that they are meant to be together. She doesn’t really love her boyfriend anyways. Then there is a psychic who is trying to warn them that trouble is coming. People are going to die. Loved ones will be lost. Wesley, with his scientific mind as trouble comprehending it all, but it seems that the Grim Reaper is not happy about being cheated and he wants a soul. Who will it be? Wesley, Katherine, or the unborn child she carries? They need to fight against death himself and it will be a fight until the end.

My first word after reading this book was….WOW! Now this is the kind of story that I really, really enjoy. Dark, spooky, sexy and just…WOW! I’ve read a few titles from Samantha Sommersby and I each title impresses me more. She seems to be stretching and growing and really rocking out! Here, Ms. Sommersby gives her reader a story that you may not want to read at night, unless you have the lights on. She gives her readers some great characters. Wesley is yummy, and being a Londoner myself, I had to smile at his dialogue. It was very authentic. I enjoyed the sex scenes. Ms. Sommersby has the talent to draw the reader deep into the minds of her characters. I was totally immersed into this story and after, it was on my mind for quite a while. I will certainly pick this one up and read it again, just as soon as I can. If you have never read a book by this very talented author, I beg, plead…command you to go and try her. You won’t regret it.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
