Publisher's Summary

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.
Who will win?

Incredibly Scary and Sexy

I enjoyed this audiobook a lot. It was well balanced in the ghost and romance department. The book is listed under romance/fantasy however it was rather frightening. There was great character development including the history of the house and of Cord's ancestors. The story was good right from the start. It was a little long but concluded very well.

Cord and Alix made a great couple with a little persuasion or maybe even some spell casting from Cord in the beginning, considering the fact that he is a male witch with excellent casting abilities. The romance was tasteful in all aspects therefore creating a great bond and trust for Alix who was reluctant at first...The kids were terrific, especially the baby Rose. The boys were typical teenage boys with pretty good manners. The new baby nicknamed Kitty was a great addition to the family.

About the narrator: David Brenin's performance was outstanding. He nailed every character and gave them all distinct voices and characteristics. He has perfect voice control and is a very skilled voice actor. And he kept the story moving at a good pace. He took a good story right over the top and made it a great story.

Overall I would definitely recommend listening to this audiobook especially if you love a little ghostly encounter with your romance. Great Listen!

- Teresa "It makes me happy to wake up everyday and look forward to listening. Many times I listen while doing artwork. I find it very relaxing."

Best ghost story I have heard in a long time

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Evenshade?

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.

Which character – as performed by David Brenin – was your favorite?

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.

Any additional comments?
