Check out my review for: Beautifully Broken

Synopsis: Deadly Witchcraft. Ghostly Threats. Doomed Romance.

They say every town has its secrets, but that doesn’t even begin to describe Fallen Oaks. The townsfolk are a superstitious lot and the mystical disappearance of a local teen has everyone murmuring about a centuries old witch’s curse.

When sixteen-year-old Shiloh Trudell takes a summer job at Craven Manor, she discovers a ghost with an agenda. That’s where she meets the new town hottie, Trent Donovan, and immediately becomes enchanted by his charms.

Finally, Shiloh’s met someone who is supercute and totally into her, but Trent is immersed in the cunning deception that surrounds the mysterious Craven Manor. So much so that he may lose sight of what is truly important to him. And she can’t decide whether she wants to shake him or kiss him. Yet neither one of them can deny the immediate, passionate connection growing between them.

With cryptic messages from a pesky wraith, Shiloh will finally begin to understand the mysterious significance of the strange mark branded on her wrist and decide how much she’s willing to sacrifice to protect the other teenagers in town.

Unfortunately, for Shiloh, not all ghosts want help crossing over. Some want vengeance.

As we traveled through the house, filling our lungs with dust and mold, Trent and I found a way to entertain ourselves. In the second parlor, Trent launched a dusty tapestry pillow across the room at my face. It smacked me right in the nose.

This. Meant. War.

Gently placing Charm on the couch that Trent had just uncovered, I sank behind the antique sofa, grabbing the small cushions placed across the back. Ammunition was important.

“Surrender now! And I promise I won’t take you as a prisoner-of-war!” I called from my bunker.

Trent peaked around the doorjamb, grinning from ear-to-ear. “I’m pretty sure I’ve got this.”

A cushion flew through the air, sailing over my head. It landed with a resolute—poof!—against the wall behind me.

I gloated. “Ha! You missed.” Standing, I hurled a few small decorative pillows toward the doorway, but none of them struck home.

Trent chucked one more that glanced off the top of the couch, right in front of my face.

Ohmigosh! You almost hit me. Brat!” Just then, because I was so intent on hollering at him, another dust-laden pillow whacked me right on side of the head.

Furious, yet laughing, I threw pillows in rapid-fire succession at the doorway, using up the last of my ammunition. But he dodged all my efforts. Then I ducked back down, holding my sides and laughing my ass off. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d had this much fun.

Trent reappeared in the doorway, snickering. “Missed me! Missed me! Now ya gotta kiss me!” he taunted.

I peeked over the sofa and our eyes locked. “Oh, really?”

His face reddened. “Um. Yeah. Guess I should try to act my age, huh?”

Giggling, I extricated myself from behind the couch and petted Charm, who had made herself very small in the corner of the sofa. “Yup. At least act half your age, puhleeze!”

We both crossed the room and met in the middle. Trent absently tucked loose hair behind my left ear, caressing my cheek.

“That was…” He searched for the right word. “Fun.” A genuine grin spread across his face, lighting up the entire room. “We should finish up.”

Clasping his offered hand, we left the parlor, heading into the more unknown recesses of the mansion.
