Renata would seem to many to be a very independent woman, but much of that is a facade and the truth is she is very damaged and fragile when the book first begins. Still reeling from the deaths of her parents several years previous, and still pining for the true love that dumped her, it is fairly quickly made clear that she is a woman in need of much healing. That healing can only come by confronting her fears and facing her guilt and finding a way to overcome them so they cease to have power over her. Indeed, her very life will come to depend on her being able to do so. She is not, however, the only character that needs to do these things.
Of the two lovers that Renata finds herself torn between, we come to learn much more about Hugh than we do about Finn. A sensitive, compassionate man in life, he too came to be crippled by fear and guilt until eventually he found himself trapped in a heinous state between life and death, forced to prey upon innocent woman and drag them down with him. Finn too must deal with some inner demons, though in many ways his seem to not be as dire or debilitating as Renata and Hugh's are. It's entirely possible, however, that we simply aren't shown the extent of his, or that I missed or misremember it.
As my comments above would indicate, the overriding theme of this book is one of overcoming one's personal demons in order to be able to fully live life and to claim the sort of life that you want for yourself. For some this might mean discovering or re-discovering faith, for others it might mean forgiving oneself for shortcomings or failings and seeking to make amends where necessary, or it may mean absolving oneself of guilt for things that weren't really your fault. It takes courage, and not everyone is equal to the task, but the payoffs can definitely be worth it.
Fans of paranormal romance will certainly enjoy this book, though it is a bit hard to categorize exactly as I noted. Many aspects are similar to contemporary romance, while the paranormal aspects are relatively unique and definitely a departure from the shifters and deities that Leo is better known for writing about. As much as I love her other series and eagerly look forward to new entries in them, I'm also excited to see her branching out into new areas and testing new waters. Give this one a look. You won't regret it.
The souls of all three main characters are so fragile and gripped by mistakes in their pasts...Renata, an opera singer, is distraught and lonely, looking to fill the void left by lost loved ones... she's being haunted...by not just any spooky "boo" in the night...nope, she's has a ghostly night lover making all her sexual fantasies come true while she sleeps. Now Finn, Renata's not-so-ex, is a her new conductor in London and uses his position to win back his biggest regret, Renata...he will do whatever it takes to keep her in his arms forever. Then there's the gorgeous incubus of the hour, Hugh Dawlish...I absolutely adored falling in love with Hugh, who's been pining for his one true soulmate, Claudia, for two hundred years... Go grab a box of tissues...reading all the romantic entries in Hugh's journal was heart melting! I lost count at how many times my heart broke and I cried for Hugh and Claudia's denied eternal love...so so beautiful!! I love how this story slowly adds layers of sexy excitement, creepy intrigue and even faith-filled rays of hope...keeping me on edge and constantly guessing about the murder mysteries and all the frightening hauntings ...Gave me goosebumps on my goosebumps!! A wonderful love story with a beautifully inspiring message...A Ghost Lover's Dream Read!
