Grateful Knight isn’t looking for love when she moves into a rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard. At twenty-two, all she wants is to recover financially so she can move back to the city where she belongs.
But sparks fly when the gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, introduces himself and mentions his suspicion that her new house might be haunted. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve to not get involved, she literally can’t keep her hands off him.
When things in Grateful’s house start moving on their own, another man enters her life, Logan, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. He says Rick isn’t what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul.
One thing’s for sure, magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove, and they’re converging on Grateful. Life will never be the same once she’s forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.
After her boyfriend runs off with all her money, Grateful Knight moves into an unsaleable therefore rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard.
She immediately gets under the charms of the gorgeous and mysterious cemetery caretaker, Rick. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve to not get involved, she literally can’t keep her hands off him.
Furthermore, not so surprisingly, the house is haunted, and Grateful finds herself in a very cozy relationship with the handsome Logan, who – despite being a ghost – is capable of doing a lot of things, for example making her breakfast, cleaning the house and even much more… (Yes, I mean sex and it was really creepy…)
So, here is this weird love triangle, but that’s not all.
Grateful is the reincarnation of the Monk’s Hill Witch and her task is to guard to gate of the cemetery and keep inside all the freaks who want to come out and munch on people…
“Your work awaits you. All you have to do is accept your role and it will be done.”
“This isn’t funny.”
“I assure you, I’m not trying to amuse.”
Grateful is not only a witch, but also the Queen of the Damned and the sorter of the souls. So she’s got enough on her plate, but she is too focused on her “love” life. She seems to be gullible and tends to make hasty decisions.
Rick is very intense and carnal but not always in the good sense. He is too weird. I bet he is hiding things from Grateful.
Logan is weird too. Outwardly he is benevolent and kind, but I feel him being clingy and pushy.
World-building, storyline and romance
Everything is related to everything else, and it is really great. The web of relations and the intertwining lifelines between the characters are complicated and interesting. Plus, there is magic, paranormal beings (a witch, a shape-shifter, ghosts, demons, vampires, zombies, ghouls), some great action scenes, and a surprising revelation at the end. Overall it is pretty exciting.
BUT. I generally don’t like love triangles, and this one is particularly awful. Neither of the male characters really impressed me, and sadly neither did the heroine.
It could have been better if the romance (and the love triangle) was less accentuated.
Weird. I didn’t like it at all.
All in all
I know I already said that a couple of times, but it was weird.
