An estate haunted by over a hundred years of tragedy—and Donovan Black stood at the heart of it. Like Darkwood Manor, Donovan was an utter mystery. An FBI sharpshooter who couldn't break away from his past, he only wanted to make sure that history didn't repeat itself—especially now that the manor had a lovely new owner.

Isabella Ross had either discovered the perfect vacation spot or her final resting place. Now her only hope for survival is a man who doesn't want her around—a man she can't seem to resist. But the secrets in his family's attic threaten to consume them both, and something—or someone—won't rest until the manor house is empty….

My rating:

And Jenna Ryan does it again. Wonderful in chilling, quasi-gothic imagery of a dilapidated, fog-enshrouded manor on top of a Maine cliff, multiple mysteries involving ghosts, disappearances, and murder, a dark and brooding hero, a headstrong heroine in distress, great pacing, wonderful chemistry, palpable attraction...

It all meshed perfectly into this great HI story. No wonder Ms. Ryan is one of my favorite authors. She (almost) never misses.
