Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core—and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.

Haunted by the lingering spirit of the little girl, Kiernan is compelled to aid in the search for her killer. The chance to get closer to the enigmatic Matt is an unexpected bonus. Although Kiernan's been betrayed by people who turned out to be more interested in his fame than in himself, with Matt he's willing to risk his heart. As the two men grow closer, Kiernan helps Matt rediscover that life offers no guarantees—but love offers a reason to believe...

I found this hard going. I liked the story and was willing to suspend my disbelief, but some of the writing just bothered me and kept yanking me out of the book. Read full review

About the author (2012)

Diana Copland began writing very bad, overwrought romance in the seventh grade. She wrote for enjoyment until 2009, when she discovered LiveJournal and a group of supportive writers. They convinced her she was no longer awful, and should try her hand at original gay fiction.

Diana lives in eastern Washington with four obnoxious cats, near her two wonderful adult children and her surprisingly supportive parents.
