After the events of Reyhome Castle, Henry Strauss expected the Psychical Society to embrace his application of science to the study of hauntings. Instead, the society humiliates and blacklists him. His confidence shaken, he can’t bring himself to admit the truth to his lover, the handsome medium Vincent Night.
Vincent’s new life in Baltimore with Henry is disrupted when a friend from the past asks for help with a haunting. In the remote town of Devil’s Walk, old ties and new lies threaten to tear the lovers apart, if a fiery spirit bent on vengeance doesn’t put an end to them first.
WOW! Where do I begin? I fell in love with Henry and Victor, as well as Jo and Lizzie in Restless Spirits and didn't think I could possibly care for them more, boy was I wrong! In Dangerous Spirits we find highs and lows in the relationships, some because of Henry's early lie and others because of the arrival of Vincent & Lizzie's friend, Sylvester. Watching Henry twisting inside because of his lie then add in the jealousy of Sylvester and my heart was torn between tears and screaming at Henry to come clean. Don't even get me started on the creepy spirits they have to face. Well, Ms. Hawk as done it again putting her creative paranormal psyche to print. If you like any one of history, paranormal, or romance then this is the one for you and if you are like me and love all three, let's just say you are in for the treat of your life! As we close in on Halloween, or All Hallow's Eve, then this is definitely a must for your reading pleasure.
After losing the family fortune to a fraudulent psychic, inventor Henry Strauss is determined to bring the otherworld under control through the application of science. All he needs is a genuine haunting to prove his Electro-Séance will work. A letter from wealthy industrialist Dominic Gladfield seems the answer to his prayers. Gladfield’s proposition: a contest pitting science against spiritualism, with a hefty prize for the winner.
The contest takes Henry to Reyhome Castle, the site of a series of brutal murders decades earlier. There he meets his rival for the prize, the dangerously appealing Vincent Night. Vincent is handsome, charming…and determined to get Henry into bed.
Henry can’t afford to fall for a spirit medium, let alone the competition. But nothing in the haunted mansion is quite as it seems, and soon winning the contest is the least of Henry’s concerns.
For the evil stalking the halls of Reyhome Castle wants to claim not just Henry and Vincent’s lives, but their very souls.

She weaves together couples who need to fall in love, then throws in some evil sorcerers and undead just to make sure they want it bad enough.
