Good story by A. Stuart, I like her longer formats but I was glad I read this story in the series line.
This is another wonderful tale from Stuart who gives you big book quality even in series romance. He is naturally dark and brooding, the O'Neil, living with his housekeeper and son on the edge of the Maine coast, hiding from deep dark secrets and torments that he could not save him family from drowning. Cursed to live alone.
She runs off the road in the middle of a hurricane to avoid hitting a ghostly little girl and it plunges her car into the deep waters of the sound. Just as she thought she was dying she is saved by O'neil.
Taking the old worst opening line to start a book and making it a title, Stuart gives you one great supernatural tale and another of her dark tormented heroes.
While a hurricane is approaching the Maine coast, Katie Flynn is looking for shelter. Suddenly she sees a girl in white standing on the road and swerves to avoid her, almost going over the edge of a cliff. Luckily she is saved by a broody recluse named O'Neal who takes her back to his house to wait out the storm.
Lots of paranormal elements in this romance...ghosts, shape-shifters, murderers. My rating: 3 Stars.

The man had secrets...
Blindsided by a hurricane, Katie Flynn was seeking shelter from the storm - but all she found was a moody, broody recluse named O'Neal. Trapped with him in his house on a windswept cliff overlooking the wildly tossed sea, Katie tried to fight the feelings O'Neal awakened in her - both of sensuality and fear. She began to suspect that something haunted the tall, gray-eyed man 's domain, something more than the wicked servants or family ghosts...something strange that only O'Neal himself could reveal.
