It's review time for Phantom Pleasures, the first book of Julie Leto's new Phantom series.
It's been a long time since I've read a ghost story and this is by far the sexiest ghost story I've ever read. The plot has wicked twists and turns that continue taking the story deeper and arousing anticipation for the next books in the series. Damon Forsyth is a delicious phantom trapped inside a cursed castle, and only Alexa Chandler can save him from the dark magic that has held him prisoner for centuries.
I love folklore, and Phantom Pleasures is steeped in romantic gypsy magic that promises to continue throughout the series. There's a well-crafted mix of historical and contemporary romance elements that lends depth to the novel that a lot of books don't achieve. The hero and heroine are explosive together and the threat outside the castle walls is complex enough to carry us well into the series. I'm looking forward to the second book, Phantom's Touch.
Next week I'll be reviewing First You Run by Roxanne St. Claire.
