Staff Reviews

Paranormal romantic suspense is about to get even hotter. Stella Cameron's new series, the Chimney Rock series beginning with Darkness Bound adds a new twist to this wildly popular genre.

Leigh Kelly has returned to the town of Chimney Rock -- on Washington's own Whidbey Island! -- following the death of her beloved husband, Chris. She's pulling her life back together, with the home they once shared, a new job revitalizing the local hang-out, Gabriel's Place, and coming to grips with her future, although she's a little disturbed by the handsome man, Niles, whom Gabriel had asked to do some odd jobs around her house. Niles knows that Leigh is the one for him, but only if she can accept who he truly is, someone who is not fully human.

In a genre filled to the brim with excellence, it's always nice to find someone who both entertains and challenges, and Stella Cameron does both with Darkness Bound. She throws you into her world headfirst and, like Leigh, you have to learn who everyone is, what theiy are and what they want at a breakneck speed. At first, I have to admit, I thought I was reading the second book in the series, since so much was already established, but then I realized that I was expected to be intelligent enough to figure things out and keep up. That's a flattering assumption for an author to make, and I'm pleased to say I did. And honestly, it's refreshing to read a paranormal suspence novel where the werewolves and vampires are still the bad guys, and where even the heroes can surprise you.

If you're looking for something different and fun in the paranormal romantic suspense world (and there's plenty of romance, let me assure you!), Stella Cameron's new series is sure to please!



After her husband's tragic death, Leigh Kelly arrives on Whidbey Island determined to start over. Yet the tiny town of Chimney Rock is not as peaceful as it seems. Women have been disappearing, and Leigh can't shake the feeling that she's being watched . . . especially at night. Soon, she's experiencing visions she can't explain and fighting her attraction to a handsome stranger who seems to know her most intimate desires.
As the leader of the Team, a pack of werehounds forced to hide their very existence, former special ops soldier Niles Latimer is desperate to prove a man's heart beats beneath his predator's body. And Leigh-the mysterious beauty possessing powers she doesn't yet understand-may be the one woman who can help him. But Niles isn't the only one who recognizes Leigh's true identity. Something evil is waiting in the woods-and the hunt has begun . . .
