I really enjoyed this unusual 'ghost' story, set in the 'Eternal Bonds' series; a world that I'd already visited through the other books in the series. What I love about this series and Ms. D'Abo's writing, is her world building, characterization, and last but certainly not least, the erotic elements that she writes so well. Moira is an admirably strong lead character and I always appreciate reading novels where it is the woman who is doing the actual rescuing, and not playing the part of a damsel in distress.
I would have liked to have known more about Connor's character but I felt that this distance in 'knowing him' was caused by the supposed, and much mentioned age difference between the couple. The age difference is only about six-eight years, and I personally hate age differences in romance novels, as I like the relationship between the main characters to be one of equals. I like seeing originality in a plot, and this one was not only original but the suspenseful parts of the novel are well paced and certainly held my interest. This is a worthy addition to the series.
On the far reaches of the Eurus colony, the extraordinary is happening. Moira is seeing ghosts. The spirit appears silent and alone. When she finally sees the face of her ghost, Moira knows her world is spiraling into madness. Because it can’t be her friend Connor—since he’s still very much alive.
But Connor has been acting strange. By day, he’s growing more distant, dismissive, not the charismatic man he normally is. By night, his spirit ignites Moira’s body as they come together in passionate embraces they’ve never shared before. Confused, Moira questions if their growing bond is real, or if she’s slowly losing her mind.
While the outpost is under attack, Moira must find a way to reunite Connor’s body and spirit to stop the invasion, or risk his soul forever.
