The first book in the Harlequin E-Shivers series has been released via the web.
Lost In Me, by the lovely Barbara J. Hancock, is being released as a sort of trial-run from the harlequin website. Beginning in October, a new chapter is available each week, and all for free!
Busy as I've been this last month or so, I just began reading today and am hoping to catch up this week.
The synopsis of the book, as provided by the harlequin site, is as follows:
'Released from hospital into the care of the man whose eyes have haunted her for a year, a troubled artist returns to Belle Aimée. The antebellum New Orleans mansion is the site of a tragedy Chloe's mind will not disclose. It's also home to an unseen presence that traces her steps, visits her studio and lingers near her bedroom.
Waking and sleeping, Chloe grasps at scraps of memory that flutter about her, alighting eventually on her countless canvases. Only under the stormy eyes—and electrifying touch—of Jonathan La Croix does Chloe begin to remember what they once were to each other. What they could be again. Such a man cannot be forgotten forever….'
The book seems to be a chilling, even as of chapter one, so I'm thinking this will be a book that doesn't disappoint! And, if we're lucky enough, it'll be reminiscent of the vintage gothics, with a little more mystery than romance!
I'll be posting a full review of the book at a later date. In the meantime, you should find your way on over and read the first e-shiver here!
