Series: Dark Legacy
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Psychic Romance

When Gwen receives a late night email she rushes to her friend's aide, but too late. Her friend, Evelyn is dead and Gwen enlists the her help of her best friend, Abby's finace's company for help. Evelyn's death isn't an ordinary mystery and Gwen isn't looking for a normal private investigator.
Enter Judson Coopersmith, a man that Gwen had met a month before. Sparks flew when the two met, but as soon as Judson realized that Gwen was a psychic dream counselor his immediately put the breaks on their relationship going an further. The minute he sees her again, he knows he can't let her go this time.
While the two investigate Evelyn's death they realize that there are many suspects and not all is as it seems. At the same time Judson must figure out what his nightmares mean and he just might have to go to Gwen for help after all.
I liked this book, but it seemed to go on a little long and the connections were not easily made when one of the stories was solved. Otherwise I think the female lead was a great character and the sexy hero seemed as just slightly less alpha as the authors usual male leads.
I keep wondering if there is going to be a third book or more in the Dark Legacy series. It seems that the Coopersmith's still have more stories to tell.
A suspicious death. A ghost in a mirror. The new Dark Legacy novel from the New York Times bestselling author known for crafting stories of burning passion and chilling suspense…
The death of her friend and mentor, Evelyn Ballinger, brings psychic counselor Gwen Frazier back to the small town of Wilby, Oregon, and brings back memories she would rather forget. Two years ago, a killer stalked the members of one of Ballinger’s research studies—including Gwen, who survived while two others didn’t. Now, she’s sure that Ballinger’s death is related.
Sent by a friend to help Gwen, psychic investigator Judson Coppersmith arrives in Wilby barely in control of his own talent and his own life, and haunted by urgent dreams. His attraction to Gwen is primal, but there are secrets he must keep to protect himself from surrendering to her completely, even as their investigation draws them into dreamscapes, into decades of deception and into the paranormal fires of a desire too strong to resist…
