Paranormal Romance
Pages: 212
World War II veteran Peter Blackstone traded his soul so that his wife could live. That was 1945. Since then, Peter has lived an unnaturally long life as a hired killer, providing the life forces upon which Jerahmeel feeds to survive.

Doctor Allison La Croix has a big problem. She randomly sees people’s deaths. She has longed to be free of her twisted "gift" to live a normal life without fear of predicting yet another loved one's demise.

After a horrific accident, a severely injured Peter arrives in Allison’s ER. The vision Allison experiences when she touches him nearly kills her. He teaches her to block these devastating episodes as she finds a way to unlock his forgotten, passionate soul.

But Jerahmeel’s minion has orders to destroy Peter and anyone he loves. Will Peter’s and Allison’s shattered souls survive the devious plan? Or could their love save them both? Someone will have hell to pay.

If all debut novels could start out this way, that would be a dream come true! An interesting take on the world of paranormal, all wrapped up in laces of mystery and dark lords plotting. I was absolutely impressed and fascinated to see what would happen next!

Well written main characters that were colored with complete back stories, and some steamy romance to keep the fires going. While the secondary guys left a little to be desired, all in all the overall feel was enjoyable. I liked that our lady doc had a lot of soft and strong going on. She's sure of herself without being bitchy about it and loving enough that you could accept her history.

While the plot twist was a tad predictable, it was still fun taking the journey with these two. With only 212 pages, the author does an excellent job of pacing the tale without rushing or dragging along. Kudos to book flow! I'm looking forward to see how this author grows as a writer and her characters evolve with the storyline. There's a lot of potential here!

I was happy overall with this one and recommend it those that like paranormal with some devilish bite.
