This review is for the audio book as sold by Audible Inc.

Amanda LaGrange and Jacob Caine have known each other for about two years, since the day Jacob started to work for the PARA agency, and took an instant dislike to each other, or so they both thought.

For years Amanda has been trying to come to terms with her ability to see ghosts. An ability that she believes is the reason her father left her mother and that has spiraled into a form of self doubt that finally leads Amanda to jumping onto

I love each and every book by Michelle Rowen. She is one of my favourite writers, but whats unique about her work is the comedy and romance. I found this novel lacking in that aspect. It was a plot, good sex, but thats it. I couldn't find that crazy laughter or even her unique essence anywhere in this novel. I never thought I would find myself saying this, but I was disappointed.

A magical clock and a love spell bring together a ghost hunter with the empath she's lusted for but despised, right before she's about to quit the 'biz' and set off to have the normal life she's always dreamt of.

Nice little steamy quickie, doesn't hold up well if you think on it too hard but still fun while it's going on.

good story for harlequin

it's funny to see how Amanda's denial for her interest to Jacob..and it takes a moment for Jacob to realize that he's falling love..

and the story involves magic's spell that Amanda and Jacob misunderstood..

3 stars...

A cute romance. I enjoyed the supernatural aspect of it :)
I couldn't feel for this book, even though I generally like Michelle's books. Too much of an ordinary thing is definitely not good in a book. Frankly it bored me with too much attraction and not enough pace.
