Welcome to Shiela Stewart's Pump Up Your Book Promotion Virtual Book Tour.
Discover in Passion by Shiela Stewart is the first book in the Passion Series. It is considered a paranormal romance.
Cassandra Evans moves into her first home in the town of Passion. Not only is this the house of her dreams, but she has a sexy and hunky next door neighbor. He is an artist and a contractor, Thomas Healy. The only problem is that her wonderful new house my be haunted.
Thomas Healy enjoys his life of solitude. His peaceful existence is shattered when Cassie moves next door. He tries not to pay attention to her. But it is hard to ignore the very beautiful and sexy Cassie. Then she shows up at his door in her bathrobe and teases him into painting her in the nude. After he says yes he realizes that he made a mistake. He is unable to stop thinking about her. Against his better judgement he sleeps with her. He then knows that his life will never be the same.
As Cassie and Tom start exploring their new relationship, the ghost start to make his presence known. Tom does not believe Cassie until he sees something that he cannot explain. The ghost keep trying to show her something but Cassie is unable to figure it out. Cassie becomes curious about the past owners. As she begins to discover what happen and what the ghost is trying to tell her, she uncovers a mystery and begins to attract the attention of a killer. Will she be able to solve the mystery and will Tom and Cassie be able to keep their relationship alive?
When I opened the envelope in which the book came in, I saw the cover and I was excited to begin reading the book. I thought that this will be an awesome read. I was right.
I loved Cassie. She is sassy and smart. She knows what she wants and she is not afraid to go out and get it.
The interactions between Cassie and Tom are wonderful. Cassie is the aggressor and Tom is playing hard to get. Which is a little bit different in a romance novel. Tom does have issues that he needs to resolve before their relationship can move forward.
This book is considered a paranormal romance, but I think that it should be considered a paranormal mystery with romance. I feel that the ghost and the attempts to solve what the ghost was trying to communicate was the central point in the story and the romance was secondary.
I can't wait for more books in this series. I am curious as to why this book was set in 1983. I hope that will be answered in the other books in this series. I also can't wait to see what other secrets the town of Passion holds. I loved this story.
