Monika Carless has a very altered style of writing. The past and present mixes with elements from the present but yet show elements of the past. One life merges with a new one and they relive things that happened in the past. My favorite characters are Aiden and Sahara from the present. While they have a love story all their own, it bounces back and forth between or flashbacks from this life to a previous life that was shared. One might say this is more of a paranormal romance with an erotic twist than just a plain erotic novel because the characters’ deal in witchcraft. The story takes place in a very quiet little town where everyone knows who you are and your business. The story is written with a very colorful cast and hidden stories that could possibly turn into other novels for Ms. Carless.

When if first started reading, I thought it was a historical novel until I got more into the story. You read about everyone having a book boyfriend and I think I have found mine in Aiden. As a character he is one of the most life like that I have read. Sahara is also one of the most realistic female characters that I have had the pleasure of reading about. While there are more than just these star characters in the novel, these two are the ones that stood out the most to me and the ones that I connected with on a personal basis.

This is the first of her work that I have read and while it left me a little confused at first, it explains everything as the plot develops. This is a very well written and put together novel. A lot of time and research has gone into this story and the way that Monika has pieced together the chapters it’s like living in the past and fast forwarding to the present all in one novel. I truly enjoyed reading this and would love to read another novel wrote by her. She has given the book a life all its own because it leaves you wondering what is going on throughout the entire novel until the end when she clarifies at the end to pull it all together. Enjoy the read!
