As an empath, Adelaide Graves has a good reason to be standoffish. People equal emotions and she’d rather do without. But there’s no avoiding her boyfriend, Lucas Finch, whose new temperament is taking some getting used to, or the wealthy, enigmatic Reed Wallace who won’t take no for an answer. But she’s already got her hands full with the legendary lighthouse ghost who’s taken to maiming. Worse, there’s a demon prowling around that can possess people to hide in plain sight. No one on the small island of St. Simons is safe from suspicion. Adelaide’s waiting on pins and needles to see what havoc he’ll wreak. And when someone close to her gets hurt, she knows she’s at fault for calling the demon into this world. Ready to set things right, the disgruntled motel clerk is going to have to face her fears.
