A friend recommended Shaking Off the Dust and I am so glad I picked up a copy! I enjoyed every word Rhianna Samuels' wrote and look forward to reading more! Shaking off the Dust was an amazing story and I loved it!
Tom Mercurio wasn't someone Hannah cared for, but when he dies, she attends his funeral. The saying that you could be hit by lightning for a lie nearly becomes a reality when Hannah is almost hit by lightning and inhales Tom's ashes. She wakes in the arms of sexy Takeshi Shimodo and life begins to become a wild ride.
Hannah believes Takeshi is nothing more than a fantasy, but matters take a turn for the worse when she begins to be haunted by Tom's spirit. How can she convince a virile male that she's not destined for the insane asylum and ask for his help in solving Tom's murder?
Ms. Samuels' writing is stunning--her characters are believable and enchanting. I loved Hannah's snarky sense of humor, and her strength. The hero,Takeshi, is the knight in shining armor, always at her side and determined to help her. Besides the page searing sex, the story is an exciting ride filled with laughter, suspense, drama, intrigue, and murder.
