The Victorian Lure is a fascinating tale, and a blend of genres told in third person POV. It’s a combination time travel, vampire, ghost and mystery with a side of romance tossed in and is one of the more original stories I’ve read this year. This is the first story in a trilogy, each story featuring one of the cousins who work for Worldwide Paranormal Society.

From the start the reader is thrust into the action. Dakota England is drawn to the Victorian mansion and purchases it. When she enteres
A great start to the trilogy. A true story about a haunted house and a curse that can follow though generations.

First we meet Dakota, a software designer who is living in an old Victorian. But she has a tragic memory of something that has happened in her past. However this event did end up with her coming to America and being who she is and where she is now. She has a pretty scarey event happen one night while she is on her computer working. This leads her to contacting the Worldwide Paranormal

This book is a refreshing take on the paranormal, adding a ghost hunter into an already suped up read.

She was trapped in an old Victorian house and suddenly a dark vampire's face leaped from the screen, she emailed The Worldwide Paranormal Society and asked them to come................

Leathan Stewart ran the agency with the help of his cousins, the message said to come to the top floor and he entered the home to find it was decorated
