E Shivers Box Set Volume 3
Harlequin/Mills and Boon
A superb collection of gothic historical and contemporary romance. There was enough spookiness in this collection to make me sleep with a light on!
Valley of Nightmares by Jane Godman
A classic gothic historical romance complete with the crumbling mansion, a brooding hero and the obligatory governess. It sits apart from others in the genre as it is set in 1938 with the threat of Nazi fascism and the supernatural adding an extra twist. Loved it.
His to Possess by Delores Fossen
Oliva and Lucien have never met but share erotic dreams that are not their own. When they do meet it is with the realisation that they are being possessed/haunted by two lovers who were murdered decades earlier. They need to find the killer before they become the next victims. Entertaining.
