A hot summer night is perfect for feeling your way in the dark…
For urban-legend hunter and television host Gabe Powers, it’s business—investigate the most notorious haunted places in Savannah. Then he meets his new sound engineer, a dewy Georgia peach who may just turn this gig into (im)pure pleasure. All it takes is one night for them to conjure floor-rattling, wall-banging moans…but they’re not from the ghosts.
Blame the rippling abs, the cocky swagger, the granite jawline, the whole muscle-bulging package, but Gabe is bringing out good-girl Lily Jameson’s dirty side. Damn her code-of-conduct contract—this isn’t just a molten-hot fling.
There’s just one kink in the relationship they’ve been avoiding: soon they’ll be going their separate ways. Lily’s home is in Savannah, and Gabe is a globe-trotter at heart. For them to be together, they’ll both have to upend their so-very-different worlds and face their fears in the process. And suddenly things don’t feel so Georgia peachy keen at all.
He wrapped his arms around me, sliding one hand up along the back of my neck to keep me close. Running his thumb down my cheek, he held my hair back from my face. The laughter and playfulness were gone. Now he was back where I’d seen him in the bedroom. Greedy and serious. His palm grasped my tush in a delightfully possessive way. “Ouija speaks the truth. I do want you. So bad.”
“Me too,” I whispered back, but then I realized how confusing that sounded. “I mean, I want you. Not I want—”
He kissed me to shut me up. His hands gripped my body, and his tongue swept mine aside. Straddling him on my knees on the sofa, I felt him hard underneath me. I tipped my hips into him, with nothing but my panties and his chinos between us. This kiss was different than the one in the bedroom earlier. This was like a slow drizzle of caramel all through me. Just as the room began to spin, and just as I started to reach for his belt, he broke us apart, pulling my head back slightly with his fingers knotted into my hair. He nudged my cheek with his nose and said, “I’m gonna take you upstairs, Lily. And rock your fucking world.”

With a title like this, I can say without hesitation that I feel it too. Gabe and Lily made me swoon so many times I lost count. I was smitten from the beginning and I assure you, Mr Powers know how to make work his magic.
Once I started, I couldn’t put it down, transported into their story, filled with such amazing chemistry giving me the freaking butterflies, making smile so hard and I admitted; blush a lot (definitely not safe to read it on a crowded train). How to go from sugary sweet to hot in a few seconds.
Gabe was a famous traveler, telling his stories all around the world, never wanting to settle down, until the moment he met the southern sweetheart, Lily and he was already smitten. Something he’s never felt before, a powerful connection. And so much more. He could for sure bring all the hotness to the yard, sweet and sexy all at once. I think I have a crush…
Lily has never been the traveler he was for so many reasons , unlucky in love or maybe dating the wrong guys, never been swept off her feet. A beautiful soul, caring and honest who fell under the spell of the Powers’ freaking charm. I loved her perky personality. She was definitely keeping Gabe on his toes.
Between a few researches, looking for ghosts, also discovering mysteries about historic places, interviewing locals, they fell fast for each other. It might have been really quick, but I didn’t mind the insta-love at all, it was refreshing, totally believable by showing how two people who have never met could connect intensely and passionately. I really loved it.
The story might be seen as lighthearted firsthand but it was definitely so much more, the chemistry was smoking hot, the banter off the charts. Their journey wasn’t a winding road for sure, this emotional charge taking them off guards, when the risk could lead them to heartbreak.
I’ve read their story in one sitting, utterly transported by Nicola Rendell’s words, making me fall in love with the place and the characters. How could not fall in love when two people have found their home, the one they were meant to be with? Just add a strong hint of naughtiness… Right up my alley!
