Please note: I read this book in January 2012 from a copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

My Synopsis: Marcie is crazy in love with Dan, and will do anything for him - even carry marijuana on the plane from Washington state to New Orleans. However, once there she is robbed and shoved, hitting her head on the cement in the process - and losing her memory. Enter Sam, a former DEA agent whose investigation against Lance Silver - one of the biggest dr...more
A large scale marijuana operation, a drug lord, dirty cops/DEA agents, a tarnished reputation, old letters, ghosts and a dark entity from the past come together in this contemporary romance with some paranormal aspects.

This is a story about a woman who forgets her roots, gets taken in by a man full of and surrounded by dark entities, is manipulated into becoming his drug mule and marijuana cultivator, loses her memory, meets a good man and they, along with some friends, set out to bring this ve...more

Check out the Blog Tour for The Choice by Lorhainne Eckhart. Be sure to stop at for my review on the 20th March 2012!

I don't want to start off on a sour spot with this novel, but it is a 'blurb novel'. This is the only reason it got bumped down to 4 stars instead of the 5 it deserved. It was just the blurb that got to me. It gave away too much information. I read the blurb after I finished the novel and it just gave away too much of the story-line. When I...more
This book is a good mixture of thriller, action, mystery, romance, and a bit of supernatural thrown in for good measure. The main character becomes a drug mule of sorts but things happens that put her into the path of the other main character who will become her love interest. This is a long book, at times a bit too long, but the author managed to bring everything together really well in the end. I like strong women so found that the female lead character was a bit too teary eyed all the time an...more

From the beginning, I was enthralled with the way the author wove the details of this story together. The incident where Marcie met Sam in New Orleans started a whole chain of events that kept the plot moving. Between witchcraft, police business, marijuana grow-ops and life on a small island, there was a lot going on all the time. The secondary characters were interesting and they added to the overall mystery and to the romance blooming between our hero and heroine.
The villain was believable—...more

Sam and Marcie’s lives intersect at a crucial juncture. Marcie has gotten herself in too deep in the world of high-grade marijuana, and Sam has left the DEA to do his own investigation to discover who set him up as the fall guy in an international drug bust gone bad. Both victims of past love, there is a lot of mistrust between them. But they hold on to each other throughout and keep each other safe.
The Choice by Lorhainne Eckhart has an interesting paranormal twist. Marcie is able to read auras...more
The TBR Pile *Book review site*
Enter contest here:

This book successfully blends universal spiritual beliefs and virtues with passionate players. Although a little slow in the beginning, it redeemed itself quite nicely after about 60 or so pages. With her finger on the pulse of human emotion and life choices very closely linked with everyday issues, Ms. Eckhart is spot on with the chemistry between our hero and heroine. Their lives are emotionally drained and to the brink of hopelessnes...more

A very interesting and fascinating mystery, detective, romance novel. I was intrigued by the way the author, through a woman's sense of the spirit world, delved into the crime world. At the onset one would think that the story is going to be a detective story and how a drug operation is brought to an end but it is really a story on how a woman, through the choices she made ended up involved with both sides of the story. Plus she is being aided by spirits from the past if she would only open up h...more

My review will be shorter than some of my others but with such a detailed Blurb, I don’t want to give away too much.

The Choice was not quite what I expected but it was a great read. I was drawn right into the story and lives of the characters to the point I stayed up late just to finish it. I do that a lot with the MM romance reads but not with with many others so, for me, that said a lot about how engrossing and powerful the story was.

As a proud Wiccan, this story intrigued me before I even ope...more
I received this ebook giveaway free through the author with a Smashwords coupon."The Choice" by Lorhainne Eckhart,started out fast paced from page one. Marcie is going down the wrong path and being controlled by a drug dealer/grower, Dan. She makes a run to drop off drugs and ends up getting robbed. In the process she developes amnesia and gains the help of a DEA agent, Sam. He is going through struggles in his own life and in his work. It seems as if their paths are meant to meet. There seems t...more
I started reading this book after deciding to host a few authors on my blog for part of a virtual book tour. I chose authors who had a book that sounded like one I would enjoy reading so that after hosting them I could review their books. You can read Lorhainne’s guest post on my blog

The Choice caught my eye first of all for its cover and title, I really am one to judge a book by its cover! I noticed that the genre was categorised as ‘Romantic Mystical Suspense’ to be...more

This is the worst end of the year book. It was predictable, full of cliches and half of the time I don't know what's happening. There are no explanation for things happening. The witch and magic thing seems to be a one big deus ex machina. The lead characters, who are all stupid, are given information on a silver plate by a ghost named Jerome. Cops and federal agents believing the words of a ghost! They are also outsmarted all the time by the bad guys! Stay away from this book.
I received this book through Library Things early reviewers. Sadly, life got in the way and I wasn't able to read it until now.

This was a good book!
The characters were likeable-well, except Dan, he was a great bad dude. You just knew he was rotten from the get go.
I am itching to find out what happens to everyone!
Teresa Petrovics
I found this book to be a very interesting read. A bit of magic and romance as well as suspense thrown in. For people who are in to one, two or all three of these things, I would recommend this book. This is the first book I have read by Lorhainne Eckhart and I am hoping to read some more of hers.
Autumn Review
Marcie Hollis has learned from a young age that she has a strong spiritual connection. She feels one of those connections is with her boyfriend Dan. However, since becoming involved with Dan, her spiritual training has fallen behind. Then Marcie heads down to New Orleans from Seattle. This was supposed to be a trip with Dan, but when they get to the airport he tells her the plans have changed and she'll be going on her own. She's left stunned and devastated that he won't be going with he...more

I can’t believe I am finally done this book. I am a fast reader but this book took the life out of me. I don’t remember ever reading a book this long before. It was a good book that didn’t seem like it had much filler, but it could have been shorter – WAY shorter.

It begins off with Dan and Marcie. He is sending her away with his backpack and it is her job to get it to the right person since the bag contains marijuana. Marcie loves Dan and will do anything for him, even if it meant trafficking d...more
Although this story had supernatural aspects to it, I would say it was more romance and a touch of crime story thrown in. Marcie is an an abusive relationship with a charismatic man who has the gift of persuasion. He has convinced her to become involved in his business that deals with drugs and to gain his love and acceptance, she agrees. Marcie is an empath who has lost her way and sees "dead people" as well as spirit guides. When a delivery goes wrong, she finds herself injured and loses her m...more

My Review
We all know I am a lover of suspense! Add in some romance and you have a winning combination for me! I think that is what got me about this book! The romance was just missing :( Don't get me wrong, it was there.. just kinda not there.. Make sense?

The synopsis of this book is what pulled me in! I mean really - from the sounds of it - amazing right?! Staying hooked once I started however, was a bit challengi...more
I'm giving this two stars rather than one because there was an actual storyline in there somewhere and I was interested enough to finish the book, although I skimmed through the last quarter of it. I wanted to find out what happened, but I had to force myself to finish.

The Choice could use a professional edit. The descriptions were tedious, detailed, and repetitious. The book could have been about half as long because we heard the whole story at least twice. Every time a character would tell an...more
The first quality the reader will notice about this novel is the amount of events occurring and meshing together all at once. The reader will experience a drug bust, haughty and cruel drug lord, dirty cops, dark entities, etc... Marcie, the main character, is smack dab in the middle of all of this. Marcie is being utilized as a mule for her boyfriend, Dan, who turns out to have some magical persuasive powers of his own. Sam, an agent working to nab Dan and stop the operation, sees and instantly...more

I liked the book, the story is a great mix of romance, mistic things, suspense and investigation.

At the beginning I didn't like Marcie, because I just don't get her, she knew it was wrong still she did it, but all for the choices.

I loved Sam, he's romantic in a very manly way, gentle, idealistic.

He works for a special time, and chose to fight for the good side. He didn't had a good childhood, but he chose to fight the good batles.

Sam has a best friend, Jesse, they grew up at the same neighborhoo...more
The Choice started out fast paced from page one. There were times that the story dragged along but other than that it was a good story. Marcie is going down the wrong path and being controlled by a drug dealer/grower, Dan. She makes a run to drop off drugs and ends up getting robbed. In the process she developes amnesia and gains the help of a DEA agent, Sam. He is going through struggles in his own life and in his work. It seems as if their paths are meant to meet.

this was a pretty good read. a little repetitive at times, but all in all it was good. would recommend.
Paranormal aspect kind of threw me; but I kept reading. Skimmed a bit.
Tammy Ramey
this was a truly wonderful book. the characters were intriguing and full of depth and vitallity. it was very easy to become emotionally connected to each of the characters and to empathize with them and what they were going through. the plot was also complex and stimulating and was not one of those that you could solve in the first 5 minutes but it left you guessing until the end as to who did what. a truely great story by a gifted writer. if this is the type of book that you enjoy then this is...more

Recommends it for: Anyone
I'm not entirely sure what I want to say about this one to be honest. The ending pissed me off and it the book could have been cut in half. The story had potential and did have good points throughout they were just so spread out. I just can't get over how after all those chapters and all the build-up it just disappointed me something fierce to have such a blunt and unrealistic ending. Then wham you get a 2 second Happily Ever After....ummm what!?
Margaret (Margot)
I have a hard time taking a book serious when the author continuously refers to the main character as having feelings in her "tummy". I felt the book was excessively wordy, especially the spiritual parallels. I finished it, but would not read I again.
