For Olivia Markham, laMalediction is the ideal setting in which to complete her work. But something is sending a chill up the usually fearless author's spine. There are the unearthly noises, the sliding panels, the hidden passageways...and John Landry, the sexy caretaker who seems less than welcoming.

John has work of his own to do and he doesn't need the distraction of a mysterious beauty claiming the old mansion is cursed. But he can't ignore the fact that someone is doing everything to scare Olivia away - permanently. Working together to uncover laMalediction's alarming secrets and root out the evil stalking them, John finds Olivia impossible to resist, and he knows it's only a matter of time before something unexpected - and undeniable - happens between them...

My rating:

Somehow I just couldn't really get into this one. There was just too much going on. Hero keeping a secret, hero searching for a missing sister, heroine dreaming of the house she's never seen before, gothic atmosphere, ghosts, storms, a hidden presence waiting for a prophecy to be fulfilled, a missing caretaker...Simply too much for a category book, if you ask me.
