Solomon Brandt is a man of mystery, even to himself.

Is he the wicked Civil War plantation owner whose cruel streak once knew no bounds? Or, instead, could he be a tenderhearted gentleman reborn in the modern age?

His name is hated by the locals of Savannah, GA, and especially the descendants of the slaves tortured long ago by someone bearing the same name. The ‘new’ Solomon has no recollection of his past, except haunting nightmares that tell him more than he cares to know, and often more than he can bear. The journey to find himself leads through the heart of Savannah and it’s storied history. Solomon is drawn to an ancient, and haunted, plantation home that bears his name, as well as to a Hoodoo practitioner who converses with spirits, and her gorgeous green-eyed niece to whom he quickly develops a budding desire for.

Curses run deep, as good and evil continue the age-old battle for supremacy. Immersed in wickedness long ago, Solomon has been given a second chance to set things right. A chance to live the life he once took for granted, and a chance to save the heart of the women he cherishes most.

And, if he’s lucky enough, he might save his very soul.


 my thoughts done

This starts and it is so intense. There is supposedly a script rule where you have to have something major happen by page 12 for movies. And with the way people want that adrenalin trip it seems that it may be true. This book, however, starts at page one! The intensity is never crazy. It completely makes sense with what is going on around Solomon.

It’s a very fun read and quite captivating. The writing is spectacular and had me on the edge of my seat for most of the book. There are a few lulls and the one downside is the inst love. Ohhh… insta love. It didn’t take away from the story though, so even if you’re not an insta love fan just know that the bond between the two romantics was needed to really engage the plot.

The only downside is there are not a lot of answers to the paranormal aspects of this. Why and what exactly is happening. I would have preferred a little more but I’m hoping that will come in the future books about Solomon.

And talking about finding out more, this book literally just drops off at the end. It completely made sense where it stopped however and didn’t bother me too much. Other than the fact that I really want to know what’s going to happen next!
