Madison LeBon is dead set against the dead.
Her fresh start at Oxford University is a brand new beginning. She finally has a chance to turn the page on her psychic powers and cumbersome voodoo heritage. Snakes, dolls, ghosts, and spirits: Farewell…
When the tragic lovers in a painting—the subject of her first history class—begin to haunt her, she must accept her gift before life imitates art. The lovers warn her against their own nemesis, a Puritan from the English Civil War. Unfortunately, said nemesis is now going all homicidal on Madison.
College becomes more complicated when she falls hard for Rupert Vance, a troubled aristocrat and descendant of one of the characters in the painting. With the spirit of a murderer after her, Madison realizes that her own first love may also be doomed…

My thoughts: Anyone who enjoys history and tracing things back through the years will enjoy this story. The author writes it in such a way that you can't help but wonder how much is fact and how much is fiction. I really enjoyed seeing the couple come together and knowing that they were destined to be together for centuries - soul mates in the truest sense.
The jump between past and present is done is such a way that it does not leave you confused. You are able to not only see what is, but also what once was. At times I found myself being sucked into the story second guessing everything. I am a huge paranormal fan but this story may not have been one I would have automatically chosen for myself. But I am proud to say I really enjoyed it. I hope you will too.
|Although the story inspired by this painting is fictional, The Wounded Cavalier by William Shakespeare Burton is a very important detail in this book.|
