Phantom Hearts


Phantom Hearts

by Minnette Meador

GENRE: Paranormal Romantic Comedy

Brianna's house is filled with ghosts, the neighborhood association is trying to get her evicted, and she just found out she's pregnant with a demon child. Not even her tarot cards can help her. To top everything off, officer Thompson, her new love, thinks he can make it go away, but he's just making it worse! When she winds up touring the 9 levels of Hell with her baby daddy, only Thompson and her dead grandmother can help her. But they better do it quick... A Ghost Series Book


Those beautiful eyes never left her as he bowed deep. “Your humble servant, madame. Sir Reginald Constantine Angelos, knight of the first order, keeper of the keys of Crete, minister of the Philistines.” Then he smiled mischievously. “But you can call me Reggie.”

He moved to the back of the boat and held out his hand. “You could stay on the boat, but I’m afraid the only way out of here is forward. I swear to you on my mother’s soul, I will not harm you. Please.”

It was the please that got her. Inside that one word was safety, comfort, joy, peace and all the emotions she sorely missed. Without her knowledge, her hand took his and let him bring her to the shore.

When she got there, she surprised herself. Without thinking, she balled her right hand tight, pulled her lips in, and hit him across the jaw with a perfect right hook. Like a boxer on his best day, it had some real power behind it.

Reggie stumbled back in wonder, grabbed his chin, glared at her, and then burst out laughing. “I guess I deserved that.”

 “You think?” she snapped.

Bri’s anger was neutralizing the spell Reggie was trying to spin. Everything hit her at once; the seduction, the baby, Reggie, hell, Thompson, the ghosts… it was too much.

Slowly sinking to the ground, Bri curled into a ball of confusion and refused to get up. When Reggie approached her, she screamed again.

My Thoughts and Review:

Phantom Hearts was not quite what I expected. That’s not to say it was a terrible read. In fact, once I got past the graphic sex scene, the story line was pretty good. I’ll be honest here- it really wasn't my cup of tea, but I’m not reviewing based upon my personal preferences. 

I did get a bit lost in the reality vs non-reality, but I believe I managed to get it figured out before the end of the book.   My Rating: 3 out of 5
