Touched by Death

(*This is a standalone new adult paranormal romance.)

What if Death was more tempting than you had ever imagined?

With Grams's recent passing and a boyfriend who cares more about his next drink than her, Lou Adaire only wants to run. To start over somewhere new — maybe in a town where her family has history.

But when a storm sends Lou’s truck plunging into Tuttle Creek Lake, she discovers exactly what it’s like to fight for your life. To gasp for air only to have your lungs fill with icy water. To die.

What comes next changes everything.

Dark eyes. Consuming presence.

Death. As vague as a dream yet as intense as the lightning flashing above her still heart.
Everything about him calls out to her, tugging at her with the warm vibration of his pull. He’s supposed to take her; they both know it. She wants him to.

When she wakes in the hospital in a new town, she can’t forget what she saw. That impossible sensation of him breathing life back into her, a strong beat playing in her chest and a flutter running down her spine.

Trying to move on with her life in a foreign place is hard enough, but when he comes back for more — his burning touch against her skin, his consuming presence weaving in and out of her life, and his own scars running far deeper than hers — Lou begins to realize there’s more to Death, and to the sleepy Kansas town, than she ever expected to find.

Lou lived. But what if she’s not the only one in need of saving?

Magically Written Paranormal

“Who. . .what are you?”
“I think you know.”
“Are you an. . .” angel?
“I’m no angel.”
I can’t say where it comes from, but somehow, I know. I know what he is.
“Death." The word floats out of my mouth like a puff of air.

Touched by Death was so much more than I ever expected when I thought of a romance with Death as the lead. So much came to mind, but this never did.

It was so beautifully written, that I was sucked completely into the story from page one. It was mysterious, slightly angsty, and sometimes just devastatingly beautiful.

Death had never crossed my mind to be a slightly edgy, but sweet hero who I could totally root for. I loved everything this man did, and the way their relationship progressed melted my cold heart.

When Lou Adaire’s truck veers off a bridge into the waiting lake below, she dies…or at least she was supposed to. But someone saves her. Not a man, but not an angel either. Her relationship with Death is tense, dusted with sexual tension and sparking chemistry.

But how can you be with Death, whose home is a dark abyss of the afterlife? And what happens if you accidentally get sucked in with him?

This was so amazing. Especially the mystery, the side characters, the DREAMS, with some of the most captivating writing I’ve read. I loved every minute of it! Do yourself and favor and READ THIS!

“I think my heart beats for you, too.”
