Only love makes life worth living—over and over again.
Ghostwalker Blake Jones dies every day. It’s his job and how he helps trapped souls cross over. But to return to life, he needs an anchor. His new partner, Derek Scott, is a surprise. Not only is he male, but his appearance belies a caring and gentle heart. Despite attraction and a strengthening relationship, they know they shouldn’t take things further.
But there’s a big difference between knowing and doing.
Their growing love presents a problem, though not the one they expect. Blake and Derek have to decide if they should take their relationship to the most permanent level—an unbreakable metaphysical bond. Doing so offers both risk and unimaginable reward. Can Blake let go of his fears and put his complete trust in Derek in order to have the happily ever after he’s always craved?
My Anchor of Love
I don’t know what I was expecting, but I wasn’t expecting that. It’s different, unique, wonderful, and superbly romantic.
This is not your typical ghost story, but a paranormal story focusing on humans with a genetic marker that enables them to enter the spirit world to help ghosts or spirits cross over to the other side. I feel the story mainly focuses on the budding relationship of co-workers Blake & Derek.
They were instantly attracted to each other, but at the same time didn’t want to be. They pushed each other away, but throughout the story, they help each other, support each other and are forced to be together so much that they grow close enough to realize that they are meant for each other. I loved this romantic element. When they finally get together, the passion and love for each other is strong and fierce.
I highly recommend this book and look forward to the next one in this excellent series.
