When the ghost of her best friend begs for her help, psychic detective Denieve Knight goes undercover as a live-in domestic to catch a killer. She sets her sights on the most likely suspect: her friend’s mysterious employer, Doctor Braeden Frost. Dubbed "Dr. Death" by the press, the notorious hematologist is linked to nineteen other suspicious fatalities—all are former patients. The brooding recluse is a man of many secrets, the darkest of which may be lurking beneath the leather gloves he never removes.   


An officer wearing a black slicker leaned out to buzz the front gate as rain fell in blinding waves. I shot Frost a panicked glance. “I swear I only called for an ambulance.” “Dearborne PD,” a voice boomed over the intercom. “Open up.” Frost hung his head. A wry smile curved his lips. “Officer Osborn. What an unpleasant surprise.” “You know him?” “Indeed.” Resolve hardened his face. He snagged a remote from one of the tables, pointed the thing toward a console on the opposite wall. A buzzer sounded and the outside gate slid open. “I’ll handle this.” “But you’re not—” “Change your robe,” he said. “You’re covered in blood.” Frost chucked the remote aside and stepped into a walk-in closet. Moments later, he emerged shoving his arms into a sleek black trench coat. He started for the hallway and had almost disappeared entirely, but he paused. Only his gloved hand—the one gripping the wall’s edge was visible. He leaned over so his head and shoulders were peeking from behind the wall, and shot one last meaningful look in my direction. The mysterious apology again. Then he came back over to me, and gently framed my face with both gloved hands. His pleading eyes were warm and hypnotically blue as his thumb stroked my cheeks. “You will stay, Miss Reed.” Who could think when he had me on smolder? “I…ah…” “Promise me.” Damn it. “Um, okay.” Triumph radiated on his face once he stepped away and disappeared down the hallway. I started wearing the carpet out the moment he hit the stairs and the more I paced, the louder my conscience screamed. No question about it. I was going straight to hell.

This little story gave my mind quite the little road trip. This was a journey through magic and mystery, passion and chemistry. Secrets, oh so many secrets. I'm not a big fan of liars so it's hard to truly like characters that start everything off by lies. I know they had their reasons and I'm actually sympathetic more to Braeden then Deneive.  So already my romantic nature has been kicked in the teeth because I don't trust the love story at all. Yet, I'm's just slow.. I was in a perpetual stare of oh my gosh 
and wow
Did that really just happen?? 
From the beginning I was totally sucked into the mystery. Braeden and Deneive were drawn to each other in a very undeniable way. Totally HOT and AMAZING when they came together the first time. 
   I loved seeing Deneive knock down his walls. I hated the angst and the lies like I said they made me really sad. I couldn't stand his brother Xavier. Yes, I am usually the "Bad Boy Advocate" But well you'll have to read this baby to understand my pain.
 He made my skin itch in a really bad way. I wanted to push him off a cliff. To be honest I had quite a few moments of 
 and others where I wanted to scream and punch something or well SOMEONE!!! . For anybody who reads this book and that knows my comfort zone, they will be wondering how I survived it. It took massive faith in this author and some intense therapy sessions too. She's patient and she's kind an she might have slipped me a xanax or two in one of those cute little dancing Facebook emoticons. But for some reason I would fluctuate from swooning over Braeden to pissed of and doing this. 
 Tanya takes my little comfort zone and she shakes it. I feel like she is cackling in the background going 
"oh you think you know what you like? We'll see. "
So I pushed through and really am hopeful that the next installment fixes what's broken in my heart. Because right now I'm a mess. What's funny as my heart is so hoping for my Braeden and Denieve to get their HEA because when it wa
and when it twas SWEET 
I loved it!!! 

As you can see Tanya can make you feel some pretty extreme emotions and keep you right there needing the conclusion. Because OMG that Cliffhanger was
This is why I let her push me a little because the one thing that is true is she makes me feel.
