ABOUT THE BOOK:
James Wentworth has a secret. He lives quietly in Salem, Massachusetts, making few ties with anyone. One night his private world is turned upside down when he meets Sarah Alexander, a dead ringer for his wife, Elizabeth. Though it has been years since Elizabeth's death, James cannot move on.
Sarah also has a secret. She is haunted by nightmares about the Salem Witch Trials, and every night she is awakened by visions of hangings, being arrested, and dying in jail. Despite the obstacles of their secrets, James and Sarah fall in love. As James comes to terms with his feelings for Sarah, he must dodge accusations from a reporter desperate to prove that James is not who, or what, he seems to be. Soon James and Sarah piece their stories together and discover a mystery that may bind them in ways they never imagined. Will James make the ultimate sacrifice to protect Sarah and prevent a new hunt from bringing hysteria to Salem again?
Part historical fiction, part romance, part paranormal fantasy, Her Dear and Loving Husband is a story for anyone who believes that true love never dies.

What with all the vampires and witches, one might think this book is simply a paranormal tale of lost love. But that is definitely not the case. While this book does delve deep into the Salem Witch Hunts and also into vampire lore, the core of this book is most definitely a love story. A love story that spans the ages. A love story that cannot be broken by time nor beast.
I was very intrigued from page to page as to what exactly would happen with Sarah and James. I had a hard time putting this book down at night just so I could get some sleep. It was very well-written and extremely thought provoking. I am so eager to read the next installment. I cannot wait.
I loved the relationships in this book so much. The relationship between Sarah and James. James and Elizabeth. James and Jennifer/Olivia. The relationship between James and his father. These relationships are what kept me reading and I loved each and every one of them. I urge you to check this book out today, you will not be disappointed.
