Mindy Spellman hasn’t been the same since a demon stepped into her life, murdered her boyfriend and left her scarred inside and out.

Jonah is one of the blood-oathed, sworn to guard mankind against things that go bump in the night. He’s promised Mindy he’ll teach her how to protect herself. But a poltergeist on the loose leaves him feeling protective—and lust-struck.

She’s supposed to be under his care, but as they battle the forces of evil, he finds himself caring too much.

Chills and thrills abound in the second book in the Shadow Promised series.  Mindy has been the same since a demon attack left her scarred. Jonah is oath bound to guard mankind against things that go bump in the night and he’s promised to protect Mindy, but as they battle the forces of evil he’s finds himself caring too much.

This fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps shivers going down the reader’s spine as poltergeist, cultist and hell hounds spring up everywhere.  The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details that capture the imagination and draw the reader deeper into the story. The spooky and suspenseful scenes are well orchestrated, exciting and believable making it easy for the reader to picture the scenes as they are happening.  The characters are strong, compelling, easily understood and intrigue the reader ensuring they want to know more.

The attraction between Mindy and Jonah radiates from every page and the frequent sex scenes are hot enough to scorch the hell hounds, but Jonah keeps putting his foot in his mouth, so the relationship is going to take some work.  The reader easily gets caught up in their story and empathizes with Jonah’s poltergeist inducing emotional trauma. While most of the story is serious and spine tingling, there are some chuckles caused by some snarky dialogue and Mindy’s refusal to step back, especially when it comes to Master Foy.

The author has definitely created a paranormal world that causes lots of delicious shivers, provides entertainment and romance all in one enjoyable read that keep readers guessing about what comes next.  While the story can be read on its own, I recommend reading them in order to get the full impact of this group of oath bound guardians.  I’m thinking Braxton’s story might be next and I can’t wait to read more about him and his story.
