Synopsis

With blowtorch and steel Clare Kimball has sculpted a personal vision that commands the attention of the New York art world. But success can not burn away the vague, troubling memories, the half-remembered nightmares that have plagued Clare since childhood. These phantoms of the past have drawn her home to Maryland, to the small town where she grew up and where her father died in circumstances never really explained.

Emmitsboro is just as Clare remembered—the same familiar faces, the same chatty gossip passed over the counter at the local diner. Nothing much has changed—except Cameron Rafferty. Once the high school bad boy, he landed on the right side of the law and is now the town sheriff. The only clue to his wild, passionate nature is the light in his eyes when he looks at Clare. In Cam's strong arms Clare is seduced into falling in love. And into believing her small-town world is safe.

But within the dark woods of Emmitsboro something evil spreads its poisonous power. Now the once-peaceful town is wrapped in a cloak of terror, hiding a teacherous heart. And now Clare must pay the price for digging up the secrets of the past. . . and confront an evil that may be unstoppable—because those who practice it may be divine.

  • creepy book
    From Amazon

    I liked this book but it was pretty creepy. Not one of her best books, but I'd say within the top 20 books.

  • I'm Feeling Generous With A 3 Star Rating
    From Amazon

    Normally, I love any book by Nora Roberts. However, this book was pure torture for me in its first 300 pages. I couldn't get into it and I also couldn't feel the chemistry between Clare and Cam. If it wasn't for my insane need to finish a book I'm reading, I would have chucked it long before it started to get interesting. This book could have been 200 pages shorter and I lost interest again somewhere past page 500. I had to keep telling myself, "You're almost done. Not too much longer." And the ending? Wha??? Like the reviewer before me said, I like to have the ending be nice and sweet, not like this ending was. I won't be reading this again and I put this up on [...] before I was even done with this book. I'm just glad this wasn't the first book of hers I read.

  • Breaks contract between Romance writer and reader-Deserves 0 stars
    From Amazon

    The guarantee of the romance genre is a happy ending so the reader ends the book with a sigh, full of hopeful, positive feelings. The ending of this book was depressing, stomach-turning, and eradicated any hope of good prevailing. It should have been issued with a warning sticker on the cover -"If you love Nora Roberts, DON'T READ THIS BOOK!"

  • Too Bizarre
    From Amazon

    I picked this book up at the library-thank goodness I didn't buy it! Within the first couple pages I knew I could not justify filling my mind with a book on devil worship and animal (and eventually human) sacrifice let alone sexual rites. This was just too much. I skimmed a little throughout and read the last chapter and was glad I didn't waste my time on such garbage especially after the ending. I have liked a lot of the other books by NR such as "Northern Lights", The Quinn Series and etc. I'm not criticizing the writing style, just the subject matter.

  • This book made me stupider
    From Amazon

    I love genre fiction, but I usually avoid the Romance genre because of its cliches. Maybe Nora Roberts fans will like this book. John Saul fans might also like it. Personally, I found everything about it to be simplistic and downright idiotic.

    The bad guys--Satan worshippers--fill every cliche and leave nothing original. They even call for Jesus when they die from stupidity. The main character, Clare, is a modest, rich, supermodel artist. Very realistic. The love interest, Cam, is a modest, rich, supermodel sheriff. Uh huh. Their chemistry together is a series of cliches taken from 80s movies. You know, I'm all for a dash of romance in a book, but please make it believable. I feel as if Nora Roberts is following a formula that made her successful long ago, in the 1970s or 80s, and no longer works for people who pay attention to modern TV, film, and books.
