Awakening naked on the beach, Caleb Hunter knows his name, knows that someone tried to kill him, and yet nothing about his life before, not who he was, or what he was, or how he came to be where he was. And almost most disturbing of all, he has no idea why the desire he feels for Meg seems so new and yet so familiar. As handsome and desirable as the dark stranger is that she finds on the beach near her home, Meg still doesn't understand why she's not only not afraid of him, but drawn to him, trusts him enough to bring him into her home, to give herself to him when it's so contrary to her nature. Loneliness, pure and simple? The need to comfort and draw comfort? Or is it something else? Something dark and infinitely dangerous that draws the two of them together?
The blurb and the beginning of the story intrigued me greatly. I thought the set up was original, the amnesia interesting, and the way Meg and Gale were reading each others thoughts curious. The peculiar connection Galeb and Meg has, familiar, though they were strangers to each other was alluring. But then the story just lost my interest, when I'm finding other things to do after 10 minutes of reading, is not a great sign, but when I realized I didn't care if Matt was alive or not, who Galeb was, and whatever happens to the pervert cop, it was just downhill from there. But I read it through, and the ending - well, it was just too bizarre for me, but I'm sure there are plenty of paranormal fans who will love this story.
The author's writing was beautiful, almost poetic in style. There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot, surprises that no one expects. All I can say is, you have to judge for yourself. From me
