When Paige Stewart left America to house-sit in England, her only thoughts were to get away from her controlling mother and to have fun. Little did she know that her working holiday would turn into a battle between good and evil, or that she would be the epicenter of that battle. She certainly didn’t expect to be swept off her feet by a modern-day English knight. But when blood appeared on her keyboard and she discovered her childhood scars bleeding, her holiday took a turn for the eerie and dangerous, and when she ventured into the metaphysical shop run by Nathaniel Brightmore, she found much more than tarot cards and crystals.

My Opinion:

While I enjoyed this book a great deal, I had a hard time buying the romance between Nathaniel and Paige. I didn’t feel their chemistry sizzled very much at all. I found the storyline to be otherwise very engaging and unique, but much of what was set up never came to any real conclusion. The ending fell flat to me, and dragged after what I had thought was building up to something big. It does feel like the first book in a series. While I understand that the first book often sets the stage for things to come later, I also feel a book should be able to stand well on its own.
