Review of Cross Your Heart : By Michele Bardsley

Even vampires can be afraid of ghosts...

After the death of her husband-and her dreams of motherhood-Elizabeth Bretton returned to the family estate in Broken Heart, Oklahoma. Little did she know she would also give up her life as the Silverstone heiress.

But escaping the past isn't that easy-especially with a vengeful ghost trying to kill her, a 150-year-old mystery to solve, and an outrageously hot were-jaguar named "Tez" trying to get into her boudoir...

My Review:

This is the seventh installment in the Broken Heart Oklahoma Series. Once again we visit Broken Heart a town inhabited mostly by parankind and protected by the consortium, an organization of vampires who want to better the world and eventually have humans and parakind existing side by side.

Elizabeth Silverstone whose granfather founded the town and who is a vampire herself is attacked by a spirit or demon. She is rescued by a were jaguar who makes her libido go crazy and since vampires can not have sex without binding themselves to that person  for a thousand years  she is in a fine  pickle....hello...

This jaguar is  a stranger who turns out to be one of  the local were community's choice for a new alpha , which ticks off a few female weres when they find he prefers Elisabeth.

The entity manages to spread a type of curse to the local vampire queen and several other parakind as they try to find  a way to vanquish it.

This is another one of those stories where the hero and heroine have to dig into the past and find which ancestor did what that winds up causing havoc in the present day.

I can only go 3 croaks on this one.....
