Twenty years ago, she had her whole life spread out before her. She was Bess Walsh, a fresh-scrubbed, middle-class student ready to conquer the design world. And she was taken. Absolutely and completely. But not by Andy, her well-groomed, intellectual boyfriend who had hinted more than once about a ring. No. During that hot summer as a waitress and living on the beach, she met Nick, the moody, dark-haired, local bad boy. He was, to put it mildly, not someone she could take home to Daddy. Instead, Nick became her dirty little secret - a fervent sexual accomplice who knew how to ignite an all-consuming obsession she had no idea she carried deep within her. Bess had always wondered what happened to Nick after that summer, after their promise to meet again. And now, back at the beach house and taking a break from responsibility, from marriage, from life, she discovers his heartbreaking fate - and why he never came back for her.Suddenly, Nick's name is on her lips...his hands on her thighs...dark hair and eyes called back from the swirling gray of purgatory's depths. Dead, alive, or something in between, they can't stop their hunger. She wouldn't dare.

I really like Megan Hart's books but this one just isn't my favorite. I would have liked it better if Nick was a "normal guy". The story itself is good but not very believable and it could have been with minor adjustments. I'll keep lisening to her books but no more supernatural.
I have read 5 of her books and they are great. This is my favorite because of the narrarator. She is INCREDIBLE. No fake accents and she doesn't try to hard to sound like the male characters. Her voice is incredible and the emotion she adds is wonderful.
Megan Hart is one of my favorite romance writers. Good story line, great characters, and interesting plot twists
