Then while we live, in love let's so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever. - Anne Bradstreet, To My Dear and Loving Husband

Sarah Alexander leaves Los Angeles and her ex-husband and begins a new life in Salem, Massachusetts. despite the change in scenery, she still continues to be plagued by dreams of an earlier time and a faceless stranger. when she meets real witches and the enigmatic James Wentworth, her ordinary life spirals into the unknown.
the historical facts regarding the Salem witch hunts, trials and executions served as the backbone for this interesting paranormal romance and i loved how author Meredith Allard wove her magic around them. though this started a tad slow for me, things started speeding up after some time especially when secrets and more secrets started unraveling . an unexpected threat that could resurrect another hunt added intrigue. how this dilemma was developed and resolved was one of the highlights that kept me reading late into the night.
i also loved how the author's use of modern English seamlessly flowed into 17th century speech when her characters Sarah and James relived their dreams and memories respectively.
two more books follow this one and though they have not been released yet, i feel that this book can stand alone.
magic, romance, mystery and suspense make Her Dear and Loving Husband a great read for me!

Sarah Alexander has just moved to Salem, after spending the past ten years in Los Angeles. Divorced and looking to start over, she picks the one place that has always intrigued her. She figures while making Salem her new home, she can take the time to research that mysterious ancestor that died during the witch trials in 1692. While adjusting to her new surroundings, she finds herself somewhat familiar with some of the historic buildings throughout the town, even though she'd never been here before, especially the tall gabled white house on the hill.

The familiarity with historical Salem isn't the only thing that Sarah has to deal with. She's also haunted by horrific nightmares that make no sense, of faceless men and chains choking her. While she was used to these terrifying nightmares happening while she lived in LA, they have become increasingly worse now that she was in Salem. The only bright spot, the nights when she has the dreams of the faceless man with the golden halo of hair who happens to look an awful lot like a certain English professor a the university.

James Wentworth has spent the last 319 years stuck in the past. Stuck missing his wife, who died while imprisioned as being a witch, and riddled with guilt that he wasn't able to do anything to save her. He's spent the last 319 years learning how to get his humanity back and controlling the baser needs of a vampire. You see, he was unwillingly changed into a vampire a few days before his wife's death. He was left to his own devices to figure out how a vampire was to live. It took some time, but he managed to overcome those vampiric instincts and become a semblance of the man he once was.

"I shall never leave you ever," he whispers in my ear. I promise him the same. "I do not know how I have been so fortunate to have this man in my life, but here he is, before me, wanting me. I am overcome with the joy of him..."

I, like many potential readers, saw the title of the book and thought it was going to be...another romance. Well, that is true. But, OMG, it is sooooo much more! Escape into the paranormal world created by Allard, where you will meet vampires, werewolves, witches--and even the reincarnated... Then throw in a good taste of destiny for added flavor! I thoroughly enjoyed this romp through the possibilities...There is considerable coverage on the Salem Witch Trials, so those who have an interest in that sad period in our history or in the Wiccan religion will find much to interest them.

Sarah Alexander had been having dreams, that became even more bothersome after she had moved to Salem. There were many reasons she had moved, but it was mainly because she had just been divorced. Salem held some interest because of a past relative who had supposedly been killed during the Witch Trials. She never knew the woman's name but hoped, having started to work within a university environment, that she could do some research. She was now the Humanities I liaison in the library at Salem State college. She would start by walking around the community and visiting many of the small museums...

Jennifer had been the head librarian at the college and was her boss. She had also immediately taken Sarah under her wing, helping her to learn everything she needed for her new job. Soon, she even admitted that she practiced Wiccan, headed a group, and was a witch.

The idea of the story was pretty cool, but it was too sweet for me. I wish there was more angst, tension, more passion. I didn't feel the connection between James & Sarah. Therefore I didn't feel connected to the book. I quit reading it at 73% because I just couldn't take it anymore. I'm giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because I really thought the plot was original.
