and his medium partner Miss Devereaux s honor is at stake Vincent have to bite his medium partner Miss Devereaux s honor is at stake Vincent have to bite bullet he must face this scary opportunity To try to explain what is happening here is next to impossible but very short This is a story in grand Jordan L Hawk style about an ghost hunting adventure in an old haunted house An old dusty house and seven visitorsThat is for sure as made for a horror tale There are deep secrets and shadowy intrigues There are mysterious sounds myths told about the dead and some scary weird accidents Our characters are in danger from start to finish Simply an freaking exhausting scary ead I enjoyed naturally all sweet omantic parts bestThis new Hawk couple feels like a winner already I can t wait to meet them again and get of themThere are of course some cozy moments here when they steal an minute from the ghosts to some yummy snuggling kisses up there in the bedrooms but I want Much When we first met I thought you a self aggrandizing prick I was wrong God Henry had known it was insane Known he should hold firm make it clear there were to be no intimacies of any kind between them But confronted with the warmth of those dark eyes the oguish curve of that smile he d crumbled An extra ound of applause for this author who show us the then current ugly discrimination problems against dark skinned people in the US I can t but still feel a bit shocked about it What a dark world for some people I just hope that those problems are or less over by now I guess that this story takes place around year 1900 It will be fun to meet Henry and Vincent and their two ladies.

Jordan L. Hawk ☆ 4 SummaryT It was creepy but it was goodI m looking *forward to the next adventure of these people Audio 5 starsStory 35 stars ound up for diversity The spooky stuff *to the next adventure of these people Audio 5 starsStory 35 stars ound up for diversity The spooky stuff fun but I need convincing as far as the omance is concerned There wasn t enough build up or tension I m hoping I can feel connection between the MCs in the next book Henry Strauss has spent most of his life plotting evenge on mediums Duped as a teenager both omantically and financially he has made it his life s work to demonstrate the superiority of scientific methods over medium powers He was certain that the Physical Society would appreciate his efforts but with no ghost to banish things are looking ather grimVincent Night s Native American ancestry has always made him ipe for discrimination but his skills as a medium have eventually opened doors into the homes of ich and bereaved Unfortunately his mentor s unexpected and brutal death has put a serious damper on his careerEnter Dominic Gladfield who challenges our protagonists to a ghost banishing contest whoever manages to make his haunted mansion fit for tourists will win 500 and uite a bit of professional creditFor years now I ve been yearning for the perfe Fascinating just fascinating I eally never understood or was that interested in it has to be said what ghosts et al were all about but the explanations the author gives in this story are simple enough for even little old me to understand and the mechanics of Henry s machines are incredibly well thought out Electro magnetism folks that s what it s all about 5 stars from me for this the first in a new series from Jordan L Hawk Loved itYes it gave me the shivers I wanted to throttle Henry several times and Vincentwell what a sexy beast he was BUT the a I do love Jordan L Hawk s books and this is no exception Masterful blend of scariness and sexiness The concept of the ival ghost hunters scientific and occult is pure genius and I am deeply annoyed I didn t think of it but delighted that a Jordan has such excellent ideas and b it s a series Henry is adorable and the supporting cast a huge strength of this author are fascinating and I hope we hear lots Loved it Jordan L Hawk does it again This was a sexy scary treat and I loved it to pieces It has all the charm and thrills of Hawk s other books but this one adds in some meditations on ace and gender that are surprisingly are in mm eads Great fun and highly ecommended After his family was conned Henry is determined to make headway into the paranormal world with scientific inventions and logicsense He s paired with a elative who is colored a controversy of the time when he fights for her euality On the other end of the coin is another paranormal duo with their own baggage Vincent Night is an Indian and used to controversy of his own but he s also extremely gifted with spiritual abilities and ghost hunting His companion has her ow I love Whyborne Griffin series because it combines lovecraftian horror with action and omance It is definitely not original true but how it combines all the above is what makes it good Besides I love all three main characters What s not to like You cannot go wrong with those themes The series has everything I likeOne of the things that edeems Restless Spirits is that it is a ghost story Then Nry can’t afford to fall for a spirit medium let alone the competition But nothing in the haunted mansion is uite as it seems and soon winning the contest is the least of Henry’s concerns For the evil stalking the halls of Reyhome Castle wants to claim not just Henry and Vincent’s lives but their very souls Novel 69409 words 2174. In the future I LIKE when it s creepy and also very nicely sweet A buddyread with Bev Sofia and Andrea thread Thanks Ladies you finished days ago but it was fun as long as it lasted I have never hidden my love for Jordan L Hawk s writing To do so would be like trying to keep the sun concealed under an umbrella Not only would it be a neat trick the umbrella would go up in flames Just as it would trying to hide the sheer magnificence of Hawk s writingRestless Spirits launches Hawk s new series Spirits and damn what a great launch it is Vincent and Henry are at odds both philosophically Henry is a scientist where Vincent is a spiritualist and SOCIALLY AS VINCENT IS A NATIVE as Vincent is a Native man during a time when being darker than a flushed beige elegated a person to the lesser column However Henry isn t one to let social constructs guide his behaviour not where ace is concerned Homosexuality during the heyday of an alternative universe s Industrial Revolution is a different matter altogether The story is a tightly knit nearly single oom adventure eminiscent of Agatha Christie s And Then There Were None Caught in a paranormal mystery complete with murderous ghosts and stolen bits of forbidden love Hawk crafts a damned good tale of scientific theory spiritualism and simmering sexuality This is definitely an origin story of a couple of men who first are at odds and then only find their footing when working togetherI m looking so forward to seeing where we e taken in the est of this series Fantastic writing great characters and burgeoning tension as only Jordan L Hawk can deliver This is my second attempt eading this book The first time was back earlier this year when it was just eleased Maybe I wasn t in the ight frame of mind because I couldn t even pass Chapter 1 So I put it aside Since then a couple of my RL friends have ead this one liked it just okay the other one didn t So I got their opinions about it Then book 2 was eleased couple of days ago and I thought I should give it a second look This is Jordan L Hawk s book we e talking about Well it worked I guess sometimes a book needs the ight moment and this was one of the case I m going to be honest the main characters especially Henry Strauss and Elizabeth Devereux weren t easy to like Henry was bordering snobbish and judgy towards all mediums while Elizabeth was
