This is the second book of the Dark Ones series. Actually I didn't realize that until after I finished it and was considering picking up the next in the series that I realized that I have started the series from book 2 and that I did not read book 1. I hate doing this but it was my fault, so now I HAVE to read book 1, I just have to!

Alegra Telford is a summoner from the USA travelling to London since there are a lot of ghosts and paranormal activity there and she has not been successful so far. Although she should be summoning ghosts she has not summoned anything yet and her boss is getting finicky and has already threatened her that if she doesn't change that she would be jobless.
Then she gets the hang of it and starts summoning ghosts here and there.

She meets with the famous CJ Dante, who claims that she is his Beloved, having trust issues of her own she panicks and tries to change his mind.
But love is something that can not be denied and they must unite for them to defeat a very mean demon or else get destroyed.
Will Alegra put her past behind her and trust Christian, or will she turn her back and go back to the USA?

I loved this book, it was fun, fast and so entertaining. I didn't even realize that I was reading the second book in the series since I didn't feel left out. The characters were funny and cute, spacially Christian friends Joy and Roxy they are such a pair you could laugh out loud at there bickering.

The only thing that I didn't really like was the name of the book.. It was the least attracting thing for me and what made me put off reading it for so long.. But now that I read it I don't mind it anymore :)

Now I'll go start the series proper and read the first book..

What a book cover! I hate it when I read things out of order, but is a nod to the author that you didn't feel left out!

I hate reading out of order too and I always check before I read but I don't know how this one slipped by me.. I started the first book now and it's main characters are the cute Joy and Roxy the ones I meantioned bickering all the time.. they are best friends and looking for Mr.Right :)
Seems it's gonna be a good book too :)

Katie Mac is a hoot! I love reading her books. She does them in a series, but they seem to be stand-alones, too. At least, that's my take on them so far. I've got to get back to her schtuff.

You know Vickie this is the first time I read her books and now I'm addicted.. she is one of my favorite authors now :)
It's true about the stand alone feeling.. I didn't suspect or feel that I was missing anything and didn't realize except when I finished the book and was going to check the name of the second book.. and I was surprised !! that was really great of her!
