Emmeline Blackwell’s life has been surrounded by death since she was a little girl. Now death, in the form of man, is stalking her. The man who tried to kill her once is still trying to take her life from her. Because of him she is always looking over her shoulder. She has been running from him for years, but must now take drastic measures to hide from the lunatic.
She moves across country to a smaller city to hide among the populace. Emma has to change everything, including her name, in order to hide her past from everyone.
Cord Masterson is the sheriff of Stillwater, OK who hides a deep secret of his own. Sparks fly the moment the two meet. But it appears that even sparks can’t keep her past at bay. When young women are found murdered in Stillwater, can Cord keep Emma safe from her past and still manage to be a part of her future?


Emma, the name she is know as now, has been running from death at a very young age.  She was finding it hard to do when ghosts of loved ones were near.  Emma was trying to get her life together as a young adult when she met Him.  The man she wish she never knew.  Even with her “abilities” Emma managed to end up with the wrong guy.

Emma ran from harms way only to find her past catching up with her.  But along the way she meets a few good men and hopes to change her luck with men.  That was until the shadow people showed up.

I really enjoyed the characters and the many secrets we find out about them.  I was really glad to see this was book one, because I did have some unanswered questions and I can’t wait to read more from this author.  The paranormal twists and turns are fun to read and I enjoyed the suspense in the book.  I would definitely recommend!
