A sexy gothic romance based on Edgar Allan Poe's "Annabel Lee"

Liam MacGregor is cursed. Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by the villagers of Dòchas, Liam has accepted that things will never get better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever.

With Anna, Liam finally finds the happiness he has always been denied, but the violent, mythical Otherworlders, who inhabit the island and the sea around it, have other plans. They make a wager on the couple’s love, testing its strength through a series of cruel obstacles. But the tragedies draw Liam and Anna even closer. Frustrated, the creatures put the couple through one last trial—and this time it’s not only their love that’s in danger of being destroyed.

Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling poem Annabel Lee, with references to many of his other poems including The Raven, Mary Lindsey creates a frighteningly beautiful gothic novel that glorifies the power of true love.

Perfect for fans of Lauren Kate's Fallen series, Kendra Blake's Anna Dressed in Blood, and Kelly Creagh's Nevermore.

Es 1925 y París es la ciudad del romance y la moda exótica. Tesoro Gilroy es una modelo famosa que vive en el corazón de este deslumbramiento y trabaja entre Londres, Nueva York y Milán. Entonces, repentina e inexplicablemente, se desvanece de su opulento estilo de vida. Tras haber heredado los bienes de su abuela, Tesoro viaja de regreso a un hermoso valle al otro lado de las Montañas Azules, en el interior de Australia. Viaja con su mejor amiga, Bella, que es inglesa y trabaja como peluquera francesa. Han sido amigas durante algunos años, pero hay algo misterioso en Bella y ninguna de las dos puede explicar su vínculo misterioso. Cuando Tesoro se encuentra con el abogado de su abuela, Connor Latham, quien es un piloto de combate de la Primera Guerra Mundial que regresó, las pasiones se encienden; sin embargo, Connor alterna entre chisporroteo y hielo cuando están juntos. ¿Treasure perderá su corazón hacia él? Se descubren los secretos de la familia y se revelan los esqueletos en el armario. Finalmente Tesoro gana comprensión de las muchas incertidumbres que enfrenta. A medida que forja nuevos comienzos, la tristeza en su corazón comienza a disiparse. ¿Dónde encaja la creencia en Dios? Tesoro ha sido criada sin ningún conocimiento de Jesús, por lo que no ve necesidad de él. ¿Llegará a un entendimiento sobre el amor incondicional de Dios hacia ella? ¿Ella recibe el obsequio ofrecido, o lo rechaza? Este romance cristiano despierta la magia en la mente y la música en el alma.
