Reading Radar: Harlequin Intrigue Gothic Find!

I buy quite a few books on Kindle, and sometimes when I'm in the mood for a creepy story (but with a little more romance) I search through the Harlequin and Love Inspired books.

So, a couple of nights ago (whilst on a downloading spree) I came across a set of gothic-type books released in the Harlequin Intrigue line in 2008.  The four-book set was released as the Moriah's Landing collection:


With his darkly handsome looks and edgy attitude, Officer Cullen Ryan could spark a woman's deepest fantasies. He'd never looked at brainy, virginal Dr. Elizabeth Douglas that way. But when the former town outcast strode into the room where Elizabeth had found a body, her heart beat fast.And when they formed a wary partnership to investigate the murder, Elizabeth discovered something else--a dangerous passion that threatened her safe, sheltered world.

Then Elizabeth became the target of the ruthless killer and Cullen vowed to do anything to protect her. But could he save himself from the haunting pull of desire in the sanctuary of Elizabeth's eyes?


Danger! Undercover agent Jonah Ries couldn't explain to the stunning woman who'd mistaken him for her blind date exactly how he knew someone was trying to harm her. But evil stalked Moriah's Landing, and Katherine Ridgemont was its target. When she learned of Jonah's deep secret, Kat might not give him the time of day. 

Only that wouldn't stop Jonah from watching over the vulnerable beauty after dark. As the anniversary of Kat's mother's mysterious death approached, the instinct to protect became a fire in Jonah's blood. A fire matched by his determination to save the woman he loved from the unknown forces that haunted the night...


Struggling waitress Brie Dudley had managed to keep the identity of her daughter's father a secret for years. Until wealthy, powerful Drew Pierce came back to Moriah's Landing. With one glance, Drew saw what the town hadn't--his own eyes staring back from his daughter's innocent face. And primitive instinct warned him to stake his claim on mother and child....

Brie had dreamed about marrying Drew, but now the vows they made were of necessity, not love. Or were they? With a storm of scandal brewing, news of their daughter had provoked a deadly enemy. Together they could keep her safe--but only if they shared the secrets in their hearts....


Rumor had it that the secretive owner of the castle on the cliffs, Dr. David Bryson, had been hideously scarred in the accident that killed his fianc?e. Now designer Becca Smith had been summoned to work in his home. Though she received mysterious warnings to stay away, nothing could keep Becca from meeting the man whose seductive voice made her burn for his touch. 

She was too young, too beautiful, too familiar. She awakened memories in David long buried...emotions that teetered on the edge of insanity. But he vowed to see Becca only from the shadows. Except when a killer attacked, David stepped from behind the veil of darkness to save the woman who was his only hope of salvation.

Don't they sound juicy and eerily similar to the vintage gothic stories and elements?

I can't wait to read this series and will review the books as I read them, so keep watch.

Separate paperbacks are available on Amazon for each of the books.  However, if you own a Kindle (or can use the Kindle app on your andriod or iphone, ipod or other device) you can purchase the whole series for just $8.99 and cut the shipping and handling charges!

"A curse has settled over the small New England coastal town of Moriah's unknown force that's about to irrevocably change the lives of four young women--and the men captivated by their spell. As they risk their lives to uncover the secrets behind the dark vortex of serial killers, genetic research and modern-day witches that haunts the town, it is their hearts that are in the greatest peril." 

Bundle includes Secret Sanctuary by Amanda Stevens, Howling in the Darkness by B.J. Daniels, Scarlet Vows by Dani Sinclair and Behind the Veil by Joanna Wayne.

You can order the Kindle bundle edition HERE.

I really think I'll enjoy this series.  Perhaps you will too!
Until next time, happy reading!
