Whispers in the Dark

S. L. Carpenter and Sahara Kelly are one fantastic writing team. They bring a humor and sensual rhythm to their story that I haven’t found anywhere else. They have the charm and familiarity of an old married couple and the raw sex appeal of brand new lovers. There is just something so real about the characters they bring to life and the settings they place them in. I’m a sucker for old Louisiana architecture and when you add in some ghosts and a romantic legend it was a given I was going to read this one. But this was even better than I was expecting, I was hooked from the beginning and couldn’t stop reading. Louis and Cory are fated for one another and it was wonderful to ride along on their adventure. This story definitely lived up to the high expectations I had for it and I suggest this one is a must-read for those who enjoy a healthy dose of humor with their erotic romance.

Book Blurb for Whispers in the Dark

Old Louisiana and mansions - they go together like latte and beignets on the banks of the Mississippi. For Louis Beekman, his inheritance is a challenge and a delight, since Love Alley is a prime example of early architecture and he plans to restore it to its former glory. He didn't count on it already being occupied - by things he sooo doesn't believe in. No, sir. Not him.

Cory Lavalle has the "sight" and when Louis calls, she goes to Love Alley to help him understand the forces at work in his new home. Together they find adventure and mystery along with an explosive mutual attraction. Hand in hand, they step back into the past and learn secrets long hidden, enticed by the heat of Old Louisiana, where lovers were parted and the future is only a kiss away.

Is their newfound love strong enough to send lost spirits to their final rest? Will those playful specters stop moving Louis's toolbox around? What's with those twins? And above all, can desire finally silence the Whispers in the Dark...?
