When Alexandra Caldwell is hired by a reclusive author to research the thirty-year-old disappearance of a big name newspaper tycoon and his wife, she wasn't sure what she would discover. As she embarks on this project, she finds herself in the middle of a series of frightening events and an unexpected attraction to Gable Talbot, the current owner of Skull Island where the disappearances occurred...a man with a magnetic sex appeal and a past as mysterious as the case she's researching. Will she be able to do the job she was hired for, or has she stumbled too close to the truth?
Being on Skull Island during a thunder and lightning storm sets Alexander (Lexi) Caldwell on edge. The psychic abilities she possesses, that she never learned to manage, add to her uneasiness. When she takes Gable Talbot’s hand, a “potent arc of energy” zings through her and a horrifying vision invades her senses then slips away.
Lexi’s ‘researcher brain’ tells her Gable’s information about himself is not all true, but he is dynamic, sexy, and absolutely qualified to be “President of the Drop Dead Gorgeous Hunk Club”.
When they touch, sexual heat sizzles, but Gable’s agenda, set in motion twenty-five years ago, and Lexi’s research assignment make each of them back away from an almost primal connection. Yet a magical spell binds them as danger and passion set their lives on ‘fast-forward’.
The menacing atmosphere of the setting, the secretive and ominous secondary characters keep tension high as an elaborate scheme evolves to solve an old mystery and clear an innocent man’s name.
Suspense intensifies every step of the way as Gable and Lexi decipher clues, narrowly escape death, and outmaneuver the adversary’s people that function within Gable’s household.
Samantha Gentry creates a riveting story as she weaves together vivid characters, dark secrets, deceits, murder, and unswerving dedication to reach goals. Moreover, she weaves a love that will not be denied into the mix — an intense, breathtaking love that brings completeness to both Lexi and Gable.
