Fall in love, if you dare…

Filled with chills, twists and boundless passion, Whispers In The Shadows explores the beauty of love along with its darker side.

Whispers in the Shadows by Heather Beck is a book that contains five short stories that are part of the Legends Unleashed Series. Ms. Beck is a new author to me and when she asked me for an honest review and read the book description I had to read the book.

In “Where feelings go to die”, Ashleigh is at Black Heart Lake to write a story for the small regional magazine she is working for, but also to be far away from her ex-boyfriend Drake. Never could she imagine being part of an old legend that includes three ghosts.

In “Hot Egyptian Nights”, Hailey meets Zade during her tour in Egypt, from the first moment she is attracted to this stranger. But her journey takes an awful turning when she receives a pendant and a mystery card.

In “Rival to Survival”, Scarlet meets her boyfriend Harv when she is still in a relationship with Trevor. She likes Trevor but cannot ignore her attraction towards Harv, but Harv has a secret and isn’t sure she can handle it. But Scarlett is determined to stay with Harv, even if that means return with him to the Dark Forest and face his secrets.

In “The Truth about Fairy Tales”, Destiny and Lila are tired dating the wrong men, so they decide to give this “Find Your Prince Charming” a change. Never in a million years could they expect that Philip and Christopher could their prince’s almost too good to be true...

In “Lure of the Merman”, Bree is drawn to the sea on her jogging trip and when a storm appears, she tries to shelter against a rock, but falls into quicksand. Then she hears a men’s voice in her head and believe he’s trying to help her, but before she knows it Sandy guides her into the sea. The question is...has he saved her or doomed her to a life in the sea?

All the stories are well written with fabulous characters, great world building and a storyline to be drawn into. I definitely recommend this book to readers who love to read a collection of short stories with some amazing paranormal creatures that you will fall in love with.

I have to say that some of the stories are a little strange, but definitely enjoyable. Sometimes I wanted the story to be a little longer just to enjoy the great characters. I’m definitely going to check out some of Ms. Beck’s other books.
