4.0 out of 5 stars Great summer escapism, with good "terror" aspect to it!, 3 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Night Whispers (Haunting Hearts Romance Series) (Mass Market Paperback)
A little slow at first, the story line definitely picked up as it moved along, with both the character development and action improving until it reached a satisfying conclusion. The story is one where Noah Simmons, killed in a cave by an unseen evil presence, haunts a group of scientists who enter an underground network of caves for a six-month scientific experiment. The group, headed by Ethan Winslow, has Liz Madison on the team among others. To enable both to be on the experiment, Ethan and Liz marry and the story deals with their attraction and, ultimately, love for one another. The evil presence is a good background and is not overplayed at all. Noah is a cowardly ghost, unable to battle the evil until the end, which is a bit tiring after a while. The man is dead already! Ethan wrestles with not wanting to love Liz, and that is ultimately a little wearing, but seems to reach a natural conclusion. Liz has a secret relationship with the experiment's "founder" -- Aaron -- and the reason for their relationship, and the ensuing gossip and jealously on the part of Ethan, is, to me, the weakest part of the story. The end is done in a few pages, the secret is revealed, and I was tempted to say "That's it? You were willing to ruin a relationship with Ethan for that and yet you happily divulge it at the end?" But that is the only real dissatisfaction I had with the story. Overall, an enjoyable read which blended the horror and romance rather well!

5.0 out of 5 stars elicious supernatural romance, 22 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Night Whispers (Haunting Hearts Romance Series) (Mass Market Paperback)
In the 1864 Arizona Territory, the Pima Indians told Noah Simmons about the gold and silver in Hoyo del Diablo. After he left them, Noah traveled to the deep cavern, anticipating much wealth. Instead of a fortune, a deadly evil pushes him off the precipice into the abyss.
In the present, at Hoyo del Diablo Cavern, a scientific team sets up a Biocave. The group plans to reside for six months in underground isolation in order to conduct experiments in hydroponics. The strange vernacular sprinkled amidst the English language surprises the ghost of Noah. Their equipment is even weirder. However, the biggest stunner of all is seeing Lizzie Madison, whom the specter feels he has known forever and loves. Lizzie will not be allowed to stay with the team during the test. The financial backer insists only married couples will participate inside the cavern. However, Lizzie gets a break when the fiancée of the lead geologist Ethan Winslow breaks off with him. Ethan and Lizzie quickly marry so they both can participate in the experiment. However, all this noise awakens a slumbering malevolent being.
NIGHT WHISPERS is an excellent otherworldly romance that will leave readers with several thrills and many chills. The story line is entertaining as modern day science with a kind, century plus old ghost battles with an unnamable abomination. The cave adds to the aura of evil. The romance is entertaining and even contains a few twists. The three characters that make up the love triangle (Lizzie, Noah, and Ethan) are all warm and intelligent. Readers will switch back and forth between as to whom they want for Lizzie. Karen Sandler provides readers with an unforgettable and enjoyable supernatural romantic intrigue.
