Driving to South Carolina to claim an inheritance from a total stranger didn’t figure into Logan Dean’s long term plans. But she'd be a fool to pass up an opportunity, and her mother didn’t raise any fools. Now she's fighting to stay alive in the middle of a vampire war. Thankfully, she’s discovered an ally in mysterious Ian Grant. As her feelings for Ian grow, Logan realizes if she wants the love she deserves, she'll have to fight the demons of her past.

For over a hundred years, cynical Ian Grant swore to never love another woman. But from the first time he saw Logan, he knew an ancient part of his history had come back to haunt him, and the one thing he doesn't want becomes the one thing he has to have.

Two irreconcilable lives, five hundred years of history, and all they have to do to live happily ever after is defeat the evil that threatens to tear them apart.

Shadows of GhostsAfter the nightmares of her past, it looks like Logan may finally be catching a break when she inherits an old mansion worth millions and instantly finds a buyer. Little did she know one of her worst nightmares would show up hundreds of miles from the last time he darkened her door with his evil, and this time, he means to finish what he started.

What appeared to be an unusual inheritance is about to open Logan’s eyes to the world of vampires, both their vicious brutality and their capacity to love, eternally. Now Logan is a pawn in a power struggle among vampire factions and her inheritance has just become a ruse that could cost her her very soul. Meanwhile, she finds love among the vampires in the form of Ian Grant, but is his attraction real or is it a ghost from the past his heart seeks?

Logan has something the vampires want, she has the ability to give them unprecedented power in a world where creatures battle to the death without pause and evil can be lurking behind every corner and her life is on the line. Can Ian protect her from his enemies? Will Logan become her own worst enemy in a misguided quest to save the vampire she loves? He begged her to listen, but of course, she didn’t and now she could die a vile and torturous death…

SHADOWS OF GHOSTS by L.A. McGinnis has it all, a headstrong heroine thrust into a world of darkness and shadows, a hero who is shrouded in his own mysteries of the past and trials of the present. Surrounded by a few core characters, it is Logan this tale centers around. So many HUGE events happen that impact the rest of the story and the emotional well-being of these characters, yet, I wanted more information about these events. I wanted to suffer with Logan, I wanted to understand in detail pivotal moments so I could better understand the reactions that followed. There is high drama here, folks and a tremendous tale to be told! I would willingly devour another one hundred pages if that’s what it took to flesh out each scene, because some of the reactions I witnessed otherwise were way over the top and one vampire in particular needed a good slap upside the face!

I received an ARC edition from L.A. McGinnis!
