When Darkness Follows

When Darkness Follows
Genre: Paranormal Romance
By Athena Daniels

The only man who can save her, is the one she swore she’d never see again…

Rachel Sommers and her two best friends don’t believe anything will happen when they sneak onto a haunted shipwreck in the middle of the night. Why would they? Ghosts don’t actually exist… right?

But Rachel and her friends disturb something that night. Something demonic. Something that lured Rachel to the ship. And now one of her friends is dead, the other is missing, and Rachel’s memory of the night is gone. There’s only one thing she knows for sure: whatever killed her friend has followed her home.

Over a century ago, an act of bitter jealousy and revenge tainted a crystal ball with an unstoppable evil. And when the deadly object eerily turns up in her bedroom, Rachel’s nightmare really begins.

Ex-Special Forces detective Daniel Smith takes the case the moment Rachel’s name appears on his screen. Rachel is the only woman he’s ever loved, but despite their explosive chemistry, she’s determined to keep him at a distance.

With Rachel’s life on the line, the disturbing truth about her ancestry and the cursed object she has inherited must be uncovered. But is it already too late? Daniel will risk everything to save the woman he loves, but how can he win this lethal game of cat and mouse against a killer that is not flesh and blood?

Do not read this book alone in the dark.
Everyone always believes it is the Ouija Board that allows the evil to flow. Poor little board that gets such a bad rap.

Best friends for years, eventually forming a popular band, Rachel Sommers and friends Robbie and Trey also formed a habit of checking out reportedly haunted spaces. The night they snuck onto a haunted ship, did their luck run out? Or had they just tempted fate one time too many?

When one friend is dead, the other missing and suspected of murder, Rachel turns to a television show with a history of revealing paranormal secrets and discovering truths.
Some cases are too difficult for just some ghost geeks with EMF recorders. For those they call upon a specially talented group of former military operatives.

This is disturbingly dark while being steamily sexy. The characters are captivating with more secrets than any one book can reveal. It is a story of survival while seeking the truth with a family element as well.
