Laced with mystery and romance 30 July 2002
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Clairvoyant and psychic are terms Sela Bennett is all too familiar with; the words describe the talents that have flowed through the women in her family for over two
hundred years. When two of her suitors meet untimely tragedies, she starts believing what her grandmother calls her 'dangerous fortune', is true. Afraid to jeopardize another man's life, Sela swears off men and hides out in her hometown, Fairlight, Georgia.
Ben Russell, a world traveled architect is doing research for a documentary on old Southern churches. He is invited to study the design of the church in Fairlight. Of course he has no patience with small towns or superstitions. But Ben is an opportunist, he sees this pretty country girl as some fun for the summer, so he sets out to defrost her heart. They clearly have different agendas, but what transpires between them surprises them both. And they finally start to suspect that the strange things that are happening are not really super-natural.
This is Ms. Harris third novel, and as with the others it is laced with mystery, romance and enough charisma to capture the most discriminate mind. -- Reviewed by aNN Brown

Dangerous Fortune 25 Oct. 2001
By Deborah Barrow-DeGruy - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a great book to read, I truly enjoy reading this story about Sela, Ben and the secret of the town. The author style was very smooth, I enjoy the way she lay everything for your mind-eye to understand. Sela an Ben story had many walls that block their path it was great to see how or if they came falling down. I enjoy the history lesson about the church and the past that connect, it was smoothly lay out that you stay there to see what new fact would be reveal to the reader. The ride the reader took to find the fact about the deaths in the book was great and unsure all the way to the end. I enjoy the way everything came to some form of closure at the end and no stone was left unturn.
Nice book, with a wonderful ending. 12 Sept. 2002

Mystery and romance woven very well into a good read!! Sela afraid to love thinking "a curse" has been placed on her. The author weaving nice clues leading to an explosive conclusion. Ben being the man to break the barrier to Sela's heart and help her overcome her fears. Wonderful book.

This book really captured my attention. I'm not a real romance reader, but it was recommended by a friend. Well, I really enjoyed reading about Sela and Ben. Ms. Harrison is a wonderful story teller and I look forward to future books that I can enjoy.
