When Darkness Whispers has been my most difficult to write to date. So much is incorporated into this book with mystery and suspense and the past playing a role in the future. One wall of my study was once covered in sticky notes with things I had to address! My editor’s computer crashed several times with all the questions and comments. I almost gave up on it. The rewrites were too daunting. But, bit by bit, I tackled each note. And each revision made the book stronger.
And now, I’m thrilled to share that it was named a Top Pick by both Night Owl Reviews and The Romance Reviews! <3
“Readers seeking a paranormal military romance need to check out “When Darkness Whispers.” This book has a well developed plot and many layers to the characters.”
~ 5 stars and a Top Pick at Night Owl Reviews!
When Darkness Whispers
Some memories are better left forgotten…
Haunted by an unclear past, biologically enhanced Marine, Eva Montreaux, can’t be distracted from her mission. With American servicemen being brutally murdered on the island of Okinawa, it’s more than priority. It’s critical. But when her investigation brings her face to face with Marcos Delacruz, it triggers memories. Ones she lost. Memories that somehow include him.
Marcos Delacruz has tried to forget the woman who left him with nothing but empty promises. Even now, three years later, Eva doesn’t seem to express any guilt over breaking his heart. In truth, she seems to barely recognize him. This deployment has been challenging enough with too many restless spirits haunting the island. But when his own investigation forces him to cross paths with her once more, Marcos discovers there may be a deeper truth.
With the number of murders climbing rapidly and the rising need to track the murderer across the tropical island, Eva struggles to reclaim what she lost. But the island holds darker elements–a serial killer. One that doesn’t appear to be human.
Thrust into a world she can’t escape, Eva must discover a way to stop a murderer from destroying anyone else’s future, but how can she succeed if she can’t even remember what role Marcos played in her past?
When Darkness Whispers is a paranormal romantic suspense novel you won’t want to put down! Go undercover with a supernatural team into a world of vampires, gargoyles, shifters, demons, and ghosts.
