When Dr. Alix Hendry purchases an old historic home in need of renovation, she had no idea how much her life is going to change. A divorced mother of two, she moves her teenage son and young daughter into a home known in the area as “Evenshade”. The home is one of the first built in Salem and has a dark history linked to the Salem Witch Trials, something that fascinated Alix. But that fascination soon grows to terror.
Enter Cord Trevor. A descendent of from one of the passengers on the “Mayflower” and also a descendent of Abigail Williams, one of the chief accusers in the Salem Witch Trials, Cord is a single father of three teenage boys and he immediately takes to his new neighbor, Alix. Handsome, hunky, he's a firefighter with a family legacy rich in history and witchcraft. Unbeknownst to Alix, Cord is a powerful warlock, something he keeps deeply hidden and repressed. But the gift is there, lurking, and waiting to be called forth.
As Alix and Cord fall madly in love, the dark secrets of Evenshade began to rear their ugly head. Alix's small daughter speaks of a “sad girl”, an imaginary companion they discover is not so imaginary. The ghostly girl who inhabits Evenshade is only the tip of the iceberg for an evil curse that soon threatens Alix and her children. Join Alix and Cord for a wild ghost story of horror, curses, passion, true love, and finally witchcraft, culminating in the ultimate battle for Evenshade - the ghostly occupants against those of flesh and blood.

Incredibly Scary and Sexy
Best ghost story I have heard in a long time
Definitely! This book had the perfect combination of romance, and supernatural chills. You get to know the characters well - you share their highs and lows, and you experience the haunting right along with them.
Whenever the sad little ghost girl is singing. Gave me goose bumps. Or Kitty's birth, I sat in my car to hear the outcome - I couldn't pause it in the middle until I knew how it would turn out.
The four year old Rosie. David Brenin nailed it. Kids are creepy. If you have ever woken up in the middle of the night to 'Mommy' whispered two inches away from your face, it's a mini heart attack. This book has that same feel to me.
