Product Description

Review

Shattered Souls shocked me with its exhilarating story line and its magical world of Witches, Wraiths and Demons. Ms. Devlin wrote an intriguing urban fantasy with just the right balance of romance, nail-biting scenes and well-developed characters. She really got me hooked from the beginning until the end.”— Under The Covers, 5 Feathers and Top Pick

"Delilah Devlin has created a fascinating world of magic and the mundane in Shattered Souls... A terrific book, Shattered Souls will leave you breathless for more." —Romance Junkies, Blue Ribbon rating 4.5

"An intriguing paranormal tale that combines romantic suspense with a mesmerizing tale of otherworldly beings..."Night Owl Reviews, Top Pick 4 1/2 stars

Product Description

From popular author Delilah Devlin comes the unforgettable heroine, Caitlyn O’Connell—a psychic ex-cop who’s hell-bent on redemption.

Caitlyn O’Connell had it all: a career with the Memphis PD, a passionate marriage, and the satisfaction that her work made a difference in the world. But she also had a secret, a supernatural “gift” that cost her everything. Now she scrapes by as a private investigator, taking cases the cops won’t touch and counting down the minutes until happy hour.

But when Sam Pierce, her former partner and estranged ex-husband, comes to her for help with a bizarre murder case, Cait can’t say no. And not just because Sam is still as irresistibly sexy as he was on the day they met. Something sinister—and demonic—is terrorizing Memphis, leaving a bloody trail of bodies and clues only Cait can read. Together she and Sam will venture into a dark world of magic and unholy terror, hunting a killer who will lead them to the brink of reality as they know it—and back into the thrall of their stormy past. Steamy and suspenseful, Shattered Souls is the pulse-quickening new offering from fan favorite romance author Delilah Devlin.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting crime thriller 10 Jan 2013
By Alexander VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Cait O'Connell is an ex cop working independently as a PI who left the force due to alcohol problems. She's gifted, the 'gift' is why she drinks and the drink is why her marriage failed to Sam, another cop who is very old school.

When there is a very strange death of a former colleague and mentor Cait is told to help to solve it because of her psychic gifts. She's told to assist in a strange way, her ex enters her apartment and drags her into a cold shower and there the story continues leading onto the relationship with her ex, her old life as a psychic that she turned her back on, the strange case, supernatural creatures [ghosts, wraiths and demons]. An interesting story line that grabbed my attention from the first few pages and hooked me when the body of the murder victim is found within a mirror

Whilst the story is okay it had the potential to be a good crime thriller with a twist. What ruined that [and I'm no prude] there were too many extensive [extensive by in some places three quarters of a chapter], explicit sex scenes between Cait and Sam. One maybe two would have been sufficient to clarify their stormy relationship but it didn't stay at that, beyond that it just detracted from what could have been an excellent story. It was a sex scene just for the sake of it, when it came to the third extensive section I skipped through it, just to get back to what to me was the real story. But reading the bio of the author she is a writer of erotica and romance, that's her stock in trade so that's what she does. In reading this she also has a talent for crime/thriller writing if she can rein in the erotica

By ROROBLU'S MUM TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Delilah Devlin is an author whose books I read, but not all of them turn out to be Keepers, as some push the boat too far out and can barely be classed as romance - they're more cold, hard erotica, which is not my thing, so I was pleasantly surprised by this, and am hoping that this is the first in a series featuring these leads.

Cait is 33, an ex-cop turned PI, a heavy-drinker, divorced from ex-partner Sam, who remains a cop. They divorced due to her drinking, and her inability to share her 'secrets' - some of which we find out in this novel, and some which I hope we'll find out more about in future tales. It became clear from their very first interactions in this tale that both still loved each other, and that neither carried any of that tiresome 'it's your fault/no, it's yours' baggage.

Cait was warded by her mum, also a witch, now deceased, so that she'd stop hearing the voices of the dead, but events in her present life in contemp USA force her to open herself to her 'gift' (curse?) and this in turn allows her to help Sam in a case that involves paranormal aspects; she also begins to see, hear and to speak with ghosts.

We don't get to know all there is about her or her gifts, but enough is alluded to to make me want to read more. We meet several characters from her past each with gifts/powers of their own, and each interesting in their own way. We get a romantic romance between Cait and Sam, and the book ends with him having a new understanding of her motivations, of her powers, of what she inherited (from her witch mother, and Irish cop father), and with them embarking on their second chance love.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fast paced read that holds your interest 31 Dec 2012
By DebB TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a fast paced read that doesn't flag and holds your interest right through to the tight finale. It's set in normal modern-day Memphis, but this one hosts wraiths, ghosts, demons, witches, clairvoyants and mages - as well as a lot of humans who know nothing about the spooks, or maybe know something but are keeping quiet.
Our heroine is an ex-cop, and daughter of a cop, who drinks to silence the voices of the ghosts whose voices she can't shut out. The drinking, and her inability to come up with a rational explanation for why she drinks, has broken up her marriage (to a cop), and she now works as an investigator in partnership with an ex-cop (this one drummed out for shooting an innocent bystander). So this is very police focussed!
As well as an investigation into the apparently unconnected disappearance of three girls, and the gruesome and bizarre murder of our heroine's former boss (another policeman) this is also about two people whose marriage has failed but who still fancy the hell out of each other (as the blurb on the back says, they are lured "back into the thrall of their steamy past..."). So this is a sexy book, with some pretty explicit scenes of straight, hetero, consensual sex - so if that sort of thing bothers you, this isn't the book for you. The sex isn't gratuitous, and fits the plot line.
This heroine doesn't blindly and (as is far too common in this genre) stupidly plough into the unknown, she doesn't rail against the fates about how unfair life is, and if the men in her life seem to accept the presence (and evidence) of spooky goings on with a touch too much ease, then that's the only slight weakness. There are clear openings for more books, and I'll keep my eye open.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good
Quite a good story but the sex scenes were overly graphic and didn't need to be. They didn't really add anything to the story line, but other than that a good read.

Delilah Devlin should consider which genre she is writing in as she seems confused as to whether the story is soft porn or a detective story. Read more
